What to expect
Villa Serafina is an elegant and welcoming two-story independent house which faces the sun and the sea. It sleeps six people. From Villa Serafina you will enjoy an enchanting view of the sea and of the coast, from Positano to the island of Capri. Villa Serafina is 140 square meters (1500 square feet). It features two private terraces with a view of the sea and of the coastline, a private patio, 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 in a pedestrian precinct, in the heart of Praiano, a few meters (feet) from restaurants, shops, public transportation and the beach. You will find the stop for the SITA bus Amalfi - Sorrento line at 120 meters (390 feet) and the closest beach (Spiaggia della Gavitella) at roughly 500 meters (550 yards) including 400 stairway steps (other beaches with less steps to climb are also available in the area). You will reach Villa Serafina from the street level going down a 100-meters (330-feet) public route that includes approximately 15 stairway steps.
You will not need a car to stay at Villa Serafina. If you do have one, you will be able to park it in the village, for a fee, along the public roads (the actual distance might vary depending on the availability of parking spaces).
The house is an ancient building on two levels, connected by a wooden spiral staircase, which clings to the rocky cliff. You will be in the first row in front of the sea and of the spectacular panorama of the coast of Amalfi: in front of you there will be just a short tract of coast covered by the vegetation and the sea.
Villa Serafina is located in the area of the historical center of Praiano which is called Vettica. Vettica stretches over a sloping land between the main coastal road and the sea, where you will find characteristic small white buildings with dome roofs, interconnected vertically by narrow stairways, and horizontally by just as narrow alleys. These stairways can be travelled over only on foot. Along these alleys you will find ancient votive aedicules, with the image of a Saint painted on ceramics. The owners of the properties along the alleys used to build the aedicules on the external walls to mark and protect the property itself.
Walking along these alley is pleasant, notwithstanding the steps, because at every turn suddenly a new and enchanting view of the coast and of the sea will appear in front of you.
Every house here has a small garden or a yard full of flowers. Scattered among the houses there are small plots of land, where neat vegetable gardens are grown, thriving at any time of the year with vegetables and perfumed citrus trees. They are as nice to see as flower gardens.
The original local residents of Praiano live in this area, where there are no tourist crowds.
