Rent House Praiano - Home - 900 sq ft / 83 sq m
Praiano is a small fishing village made up of houses scattered along the ridge of Monte S. Angelo which ends in the intense blue sea, at Capo Sottile. In an inlet is Marina di Praia, a small and charming beach surrounded by the houses and boats of the fishermen and by small, unpretentious restaurants that attract you with their simplicity. It is considered Positano’s little sister with a similar beach and church, but not anything like so inundated with a flood of travellers and if you climb up behind the main road you will find a natural village with incredible views, undisturbed by the rumble of coaches and cars. Lemon groves and vineyard terraces follow the irregularity of the terrain that slopes gently down to the little coves where the ancient Saracen towers stand guarding against these days improbable enemies. The favourable climate, the pure air, the beautifully blue sea, the cordiality of the people and improving tourist facilities are just few of the reasons that make Praiano an increasingly desirable place to spend one’s holiday.
Set in a panoramic location, the home was built on the hillside a few steps from the internal road of Praiano that runs behind the house.
