The villa is on four levels, enjoying a magnificent view of the sea

The villa, thanks to its convenient location overlooking the bay most evocative of Praiano overlooking the deep blue sea: it offers a magnificent view thanks to large terraces that surround that look, on the one hand, the famous Conca dei Marini and by ' another historic Saracen tower, named 'the Sciola', open to the public. All set in a frame of copyright framework. Author, represented solely by generous Mother Nature, from which to draw energy and inspiration.

The villa is on the edge of Praiano, between Positano and Amalfi, right on the famous beach of La Praia. The villa is on four levels. For each level a separate apartment, and all it has a terraced outdoor space. At the first level, starting from the bottom, you will find "La Praia". The second level is "The Cove."

Lovely view, but apartment not as described and host extremely irresponsible/dishonest

  • 1 of 5

First the positives, Praiano is a wonderful place and the view from the villa is incredible. The villa itself is nice enough but several small items (described below) were not as described which was disappointing. Further, the host has ripped us off on multiple occasions and is now refusing to respond to us- this is extremely poor practice and should not be allowed. Unfortunately VRBO will not step in as it claims it is only a middle man, so I urge caution with this or any other booking.

We believe we deserve at least a partial refund as the experience was not as described for the following reasons:

-We were charged an extra 100 euros a few weeks before our trip for "electricity". This charge was never disclosed ahead of time and felt like it was a last minute scam that we were forced to pay because by then we had no other options on such short notice. We only stayed in the villa for 3 days and were hardly ever home so 100 euros is extremely high for this.

-The remote control for the air conditioning in one bedroom was missing, further limiting our electricity use. The ability to use AC was one of the reasons we booked the villa so the fact it did not work again was misleading.

-There was almost no hot water available, except on the first day. This again was frustrating and further limited our use of electricity.

-There was no one around that would could ask for help even though Ornella specifically told me there would be English speaking staff available the duration of our trip. Instead, the host herself was never present and the woman she designated to check us in repeatedly ignored our messages. She was very nice but spoke hardly no English and ignored several of our requests to communicate when we had questions.

-There were ants all over the kitchen. Again when we emailed the host, we were told to contact her friend but were not provided with her contact information when we asked for it.

-There was a significant amount of water that leaked from the bathroom into one of the bedrooms. It got worse and worse each day.

-The villa is not nearly as convenient located as described. It is over a mile walk to the center of town and nearly as far (and almost 500 stairs) to the beach. This is to be expected in a place like this but the listing should disclose such

In general, this place was not as advertised and disappointing. It's hard to have a bad stay in Praiano and we definitely made the most of it but I highly recommend staying elsewhere

Are you romantic_Do you need privacy

  • 5 of 5

You've found it in this unbelievable location that is away from everything to rest. Take a day and take a bus to Positano; be overwhelmed with all the people then come back to Praiano. You will find parking is nearly impossible. If you bring a car, find a white free space and leave it there using public transportation and your feet.

Be sure to take the long steps down to Praiai beach. It looks like forever but is only .25 of a mile to the main road and then probably .15 mile more to the beach and worth it. Once your are to the main road, turn right and look for the Africana restaurant sign. The stairs to the beach are right near there and marked. Once to the beach you will find many good restaurants and a pretty swimming hole. Nothing but locals here. Very authentic.

You will find much privacy here on the beautiful terrace of La Barca overlooking Praiai Beach. Take sight of the round marker that I call a lighthouse. That is a good marker for every where you go.

We ate at Moressa several times. it was delicious and friendly. Don't miss out eating at Kasai. Gourmet and beautiful all the way around. Great service and they feed you well.

Thank you Lucrezia and daughter Grazia. You were so patient with us. We arrived around 8pm in the dark with the rain and had a difficult time finding our way. Lucrezia stood out in the rain waiting for us. Without here we would not find our apartment. It is about a .5 mile walk from Tutto x Tutti supermarket where she met us. With the torrents of rain and dark we traversed the many steps, inclines and declines. If you can't brave the steps, this is not for you. For us it was so worth it.

I was with my Uncle so it was not a romantic trip. Had I a lover; this woud have been amazing and private. Enjoy we really did enjoy our family time. Thank you

splendida vista sul mare, silenzio e tranquillità

  • 5 of 5

Assieme ad una coppia di nostri amici siamo stati ospiti di "Villa Angelina- appartamento La Barca" per una settimana a maggio.

La Signora Ornella è stata gentile, sollecita e disponibile a fornire informazioni. Quando siamo arrivati abbiamo trovato ad accoglierci la gentile signora Lucrezia, che abita nella villa a fianco, che si è messa a nostra disposizione per l'intera vacanza.

L'appartamento è molto bello e ben arredato: ci sono due camere da letto con i rispettivi bagni ed un ampio soggiorno aperto sul banco cucina. Splendida la terrazza, molto ampia con una zona a loggia e il resto aperto per prendere il sole. Dalla terrazza si può accedere anche ad un giardino ombreggiato e profumato dai fiori.

La vista è fantastica al punto che non ti verrebbe ami voglia di lasciare la terrazza!

La valutazione del prezzo ci è sembrata adeguata.

Aspetti negativi?

- La distanza dalla strada carrabile non è breve (circa 300 mt. ) e ci sono un paio di rampe impegnative. Peraltro abbiamo faticato un poco soltanto all'arrivo e alla partenza;

- le dotazione per cucinare e pranzare potrebbe essere migliorata in qualità e quantità, manca la lavastoviglie.

In sintesi: esperienza da sogno in una location molto bella che mi sento di suggerire a chi ama la natura e la tranquillità.
