What to expect
Villa Giampa is a splendid villa with the fascination of the typical and ancient mediterranean houses. It sleeps 11 people. From Villa Giampa you will enjoy a thrilling view of the sea and of the coastline. Villa Giampa is 160 square meters (1720 square feet). It features a private swimming pool, two wide private terraces with a view of the sea, a private garden, air conditioning (please read description below to check in which rooms the units are installed) and WI-FI Internet access.
You will be in a pedestrian precinct, in the seventeenth-century historic center of Praiano, where you will find restaurants, shops and the stop for the SITA bus and for the local bus. You will find the closest beach at roughly 1 km (0.6 miles). You will reach Villa Giampa from the street level going up a 150-meters (490-feet) public walkway that includes approximately 62 stairway steps.
You will not need a car to stay at Villa Giampa. If you do have one, you will be able to park it at approximately 200 meters (220 yards), for a fee, in a public parking lot (being the lot a public one, parking spaces can not be reserved). Alternatively, you can park free of charge along the public roads (the actual distance might vary depending on the availability of parking spaces).
Villa Giampa is part of the historical center of Praiano, which consists of a cluster of white houses on the highest area of a steep slope of a hill overlooking the sea. The houses are nestled around the beautiful bell-tower and the eighteenth-century church of San Luca.
In this area of Praiano, almost all the houses date back to the eighteenth century. They feature white façades often decorated with stuccoes, patios below masonry arches sustaining terraces facing the sea, and sloping gardens filled with flowers and citrus trees around. To walk through such extraordinary village, declared World Heritage site by UNESCO, means climbing narrow stairways and pedestrian streets.
The whole area is made for pedestrians, except for the only access street to the main square. Here you will not find streets packed with tourists; all you will see are the kind inhabitants of the place. And you will be able to experience the fascination and authentic beauty of the Amalfi Coast: one not changed by the actions of tourism!
Villa Giampa lies in a secluded position, having been built chiefly on a rocky steep slope. Once you have crossed the entrance gate, a beautiful white staircase - flanked with pots full of flowers - will lead you up on a terrace which is the access to both the house and a second larger terrace (through an external flight of steps) where you will find the swimming pool and the garden.
Villa Giampa will enchant you for sure! You'll face only the blue of the sky and the sea, while both sides show the green coastal outline spotted with the typical white houses in Praiano.
The clean and lemon-scented air, the vivid colors under the Mediterranean sun, and the harmony and beauty surrounding you will make you happy for being alive and enjoying your vacation in such a great place…
