Holiday Home Description

Casa Concetta is an ancient house of Praiano, with independent entrance, for five persons, of approximately 110 square meters (1185 square feet), with balconies and a rustic garden, all with a fascinating view of the sea.

It has two bedrooms, one of which with air conditioning, three bathrooms, a living room with air conditioning, a kitchen, a family room and a rustic garden of 100 square meters (1075 square feet).

The house is equipped with central heating.

Casa Concetta is located in the heart of the historical center of Praiano, which is an ancient fishermen’s village located halfway between Amalfi and Positano, and made up of a cluster of small white houses that cling to the rocky cliff, sheer above the sea.

Seen from a distance, it seem that the houses have been built one above the other, following the contour of the steep coast. When you take a closer look you find out that they are separated by thriving gardens and vegetable gardens dug into the side of the cliff. They are reached along narrow alleys and picturesque “scalinatelle” (stairways cut into the cliff), which seem to reach for the sky or dive straight into the sea.

The only transportation in this area is provided by your own legs, and you will be happy to walk in this place, when at every turn along your path you will discover a new charming view and unexpected and bright seascapes.

The area of Praiano where Casa Concetta is located is inhabited by authentic locals, who live their peaceful life framed by the splendid natural beauty of the coast, of the sky and of the sea, far away from the noise of traffic.

At close distance from the villa you will not find crowds of tourists, nor the clutter of tourist shops and restaurant: you will see just a few shops selling basic items, and the friendly faces of the locals that you will meet in the streets. By the way, don’t be surprised if everyone here will be saying hello when they meet you in the street – get ready to greet them and to smile back!

Still, the vitality and the happy vacation life of the coast of Amalfi are close at hand: starting at just a couple of kilometers (miles) from the villa you will find nice restaurants and wonderful night club on the sea. At approximately 6 km (4 miles), in Positano, there are colourful shopping streets, where you will be able to shop for fashion and local hand-made goods. By the Spiaggia Grande (the main beach) of Positano you will find famous tourist attractions.

You will reach Casa Concetta climbing approximately 60 steps from the main square of Praiano, which is also the last stop of the local bus and the closest spot that can be reached by car. Beyond this square the center of Praiano is made up of picturesque alleys and stairways where you can only walk.

The entrance of Casa Concetta is a high arched main door, that opens on one of these alley, in front of an ancient aedicule that show the Immaculate Virgin (Madonna Immacolata), to whom all those who pass by are devoted.

On the ground floor of the house there is a large family room with a kitchen, with a comfortable table placed in the middle. Here you will have plenty of space to have fun cooking and experimenting the Italian cuisine with your friends! Next to the family room there is a bathroom with a toilet, a wash basin, a bidet and a washing machine.

You will reach the first bedroom climbing a flight of stairs. This double bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with a shower, air conditioning and a window that opens on the stairs.

Climbing a few more steps you will reach the top level of the house, which is the main level. Here you will find a nice living room with a kitchenette, a balcony with a view of the sea, a large bedroom with three single bed and a balcony with a view of the sea, and a large and comfortable bathroom with shower. The living room is equipped with a sofa, a table with chairs and air conditioning. The living room is also connected to a kitchenette equipped with a five-burner cooker, oven and refrigerator.

The house is equipped with central heating.

From the living room you can also enter the garden, which is made by two overlapping long terraces dug into the cliff. In the part which is closer to the villa you will find an area equipped with a table, chairs, deck chairs and a beach umbrella. A barbecue is available.

Here, relaxing “al fresco”, you will have in front of you an unbroken view of sea and sky, and will be able to enjoy the view of the coast up to Cape Conca (Capo di Conca).

The remaining part of the garden is a thriving vegetable garden, neatly grown with loving care by the owners. Here you will find small bunches of vegetable as beautiful as flowerbeds, a pergola made of lemons, as small peach tree, flowered shrubs and small plants of perfumed basil. The gentle owner will not miss the chance to offer you the fresh produce of the moment.

If you would like to go to the beach, the closest one is the beach of Praiano called “Gavitella”. It can only be reached by foot, descending approximately 400 steps, and it is located in a picturesque inlet right below the village.

Another very characteristic beach is the beach of “La Praia”, that can also be reach by bus. During the good seasons cafes and restaurants are open at both beaches.

If you like hiking, in the area you will find walks that are famous for their extraordinary beauty, such as the "Sentiero degli Dei": Path of the Gods.

Casa Concetta is the right place to stay if you are looking for the most authentic charm of the Amalfi Coast, just out of the frantic holiday life of the most crowded areas.

The tourist spots of the coast are easily reached, since just a few steps from the house you can take the local bus, which connects Praiano to the beach of Praia (3 km, 2 miles) and with Positano (6 km, 4 miles).

The local bus will take you to the stop for the long distance bus that will allow you to reach Amalfi, Positano, Sorrento, Naples, Pompeii, Paestum and so on.

Ferries to reach Capri as well as the other villages along the coast are available in Positano (6 km, 4 miles) and in Amalfi (8 km, 5 miles).
