In a prime location just 10 minutes’ walk from the centre of Praiano, between Amalfi and Positano, this charming villa offer an exceptional combination of coast and country; a romantic escape yet in the town, close to the coast yet surrounded by a garden which offers privacy and space - a very rare thing indeed on this stretch of the Amalfi Coast.
The large and mature garden offers several different levels with flat lawns, established plam trees and colourful bougainvillea. The pool is set above the villa, making the most of the lovely views across Praiano and the sea. There is also a fabulous summer kitchen and outdoor dining area on this level.
Praiano centre is approximately 10 mins walk offering a great selection of amenities. This is one of the most scenic streches of the Amalfi Coast with winding roads joining the many, picturesque villages built into the steep cliffs. These ancient towns and villages are all criss-crossed with an intricate network of alleyways offering delightful boutiques, restaurants and cafes. Most have a pretty harbour where boats can be hired or scheduled ferries call; the Amalfi Coast must be seen from the sea to really appreciate its glorious combination of natural and man-made beauty.
