What to expect
Casa Susanna is a bright and elegant apartment which faces the sun and the sea. It sleeps two people. From Casa Susanna you will enjoy a breathtaking view of the sea and of the coast, from Positano to the island of Capri and of the small Li Galli islands. Casa Susanna is 60 square meters (645 square feet). It features a nice private terrace with a view of the sea, air conditioning (please read description below to check in which rooms the units are installed), winter heating and WI-FI Internet access.
You will be at a short distance from the center of Praiano, where you will find restaurants and shops. You will find the stop for the SITA bus a few meters (feet) away and the closest beach (Spiaggia della Gavitella) at roughly 500 meters (550 yards) including 400 stairway steps. You will reach Casa Susanna from the street level going down approximately 12 stairway steps.
You will not need a car to stay at Casa Susanna. If you do have one, you will be able to park it along the public roads (the actual distance might vary depending on the availability of parking spaces).
Casa Susanna is an ancient fishermen's house, completely renewed in 2009.
When you arrive on the large terrace you will be happy to have chosen Casa Susanna for your vacation: your sight will be able to wander free over an uninterrupted wide horizon of sky and sea, and over one of the most beautiful seascapes that the charming coast of Amalfi is able to offer.
Below the terrace you will see short tract of coast, and then the cliff steeply drops into the sea. This tract of coast is covered by the green of the olive trees, broken here and there by the white roofs of a few small houses. Further away, your sight will embrace a wide view of the sea and of the coast which surrounds the characteristic village of Positano, and will reach Punta Campanella and the island of Capri. The famous Faraglioni of Capri can be seen at the horizon, and, closer, you can admire the small islands of Li Galli.
A large window separates the living room from the terrace, allowing you to enjoy the splendid view of the sea from inside.
You will be able to walk to the sea and to a characteristic beach cut into the cliff (called "La Gavitella") along a path that includes approximately 400 steps. A bit further away, at approximately 1.5 km (one mile), you will find the beautiful beach of Praia, which can be reached by bus, and where you will be able to rent small boats and take diving classes. 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 Susanna is the right choice if you are looking for a simple and comfortable place and 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 (1.5 km, 1.5 miles) and with Positano (6 km, 4 miles). Long distance buses are also available, and will allow you to reach Amalfi, Positano, Sorrento, Naples, Pompeii, Paestum and so on. Ferries to reach Capri, Sorrento as well as the other villages along the coast are available in Positano (6 km, 4 miles) and in Amalfi (8 km, 5 miles).
The terrace is 80 square meters (860 square feet) large. It is partly shaded by a wood roof. It is equipped with tables, chairs, a sun umbrella and two sun loungers. From the terrace you will have a fascinating view of the sea and of the coast from Positano to Punta Campanella, the western tip of the Sorrentine peninsula, and of the island of Capri on the horizon.
The furnishings of the living room are simple. The furnishings include a sofa. The dining table can accommodate four guests. In this room you will find a satellite television (local channels) and a CD player. From the living room you will be able to enter the large terrace with a view of the sea through a French door. The room is equipped with an air conditioning/heating unit.
You will be able to enter the first bedroom from the corridor. The bedroom has a matrimonial bed (160 cm/62 inches, wider than a queen-size bed). The room has a small window that opens into the living room. The bedroom is equipped with an air conditioning/heating unit. This bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, tiled with lucid handmade majolica tiles and equipped with a washbasin, a toilet, large fully-enclosed shower and a hairdryer.
