Alex is a pretty detached apartment in an elevated position nestled on the hillside above the village of Praiano situated between the famous towns of Positano and Amalfi. The great highlight of this apartment is its' wonderful large terrace which enjoys an amazing view of the azure sea and is perfect for relaxing, soaking up the sun or dining al fresco whilst enjoying the gorgeous panorama.
Pathways and steps (130 approx) wind up through the town to this lovely apartment which is detached and all on one level. Alex is nicely furnished in simple Mediterranean style and modern comforts of air conditioning (in bedrooms), Wi Fi internet connection and a washing machine have been added. It is possible to stay here without a car as the lovely town of Praiano, with its shops, excellent restaurants and bars is within walking distance and the pretty local beaches can also be reached on foot (1 km approx), or by handy shuttle bus service from the village. If you do have a car it is possible to reserve a parking space nearby (this parking space is suitable for small cars only and must be requested, pre booked in advance and is subject to availability).
Alex consists of a living room with sitting area with settee, two armchairs, kitchen area, dining table and chairs, satellite television, DVD player and Hi Fi. A corridor leads to the bedrooms (both equipped with air conditioning), one of the bedrooms has a double bed and opens onto the terrace, the other has twin beds (which can convert to a double on request). There is also a shower room and a little laundry room with washing machine.
The living room and the double bedroom have patio doors leading onto the apartments own large private terrace which is a real highlight. The terrace is 100sqm and enjoys a fantastic view over the sea. Equipped with sun loungers, outdoor shower, table and chairs and barbeque, it really is the perfect spot for soaking up the sun, or dining al fresco whilst enjoying the breathtaking panorama.
This wonderful area inspired writers and composers such as Goethe and Wagner, who were awed with its beauty and Alex is ideally located to explore the lovely town of Praiano, enjoy its' pretty beaches or even take a boat trip along the coast. The local bus reaches many other local towns such as Positano and Amalfi. Further afield and well worth a visit are the archeological sites of Pompeii and Ercolano, at the feet of the volcano Vesuvius, and cosmopolitan Sorrento with its maze of streets, with shops and pavement cafes is a joy to explore.
Note: As the apartment is built into the hillside, there are steps (130 approx)/steep paths to Praiano and seafront, therefore this property may not be suitable for persons with walking difficulties.
