Casa Alea was a great stay! We stayed here for 3 nights in September 2017. The home is lovely and has a TERRIFIC view! It’s very clean and gets plenty of sunlight so gives you a great feel of being on the Amalfi coast. The town, Praiano, is really wonderful. Casa Alea is conveniently located and there is a supermarket close by where you can get all that you need including local cheeses and wines. There are few restaurants close by as well. Lucia is a great host as well and super helpful. She provided us with a great service and was always available whenever we had questions. She personalized our stay with homemade limoncello and allowed us to take fresh basil and rosemary from her garden! The only thing that was hard were the stairs!! As the host had warned us, there are quite a few stairs that one needs to take to get to casa alea - but that is also very common in Amalfi. However Lucia arranged to help us with our bags when we arrived which was very kind of her. We loved our stay here and enjoyed it very much!!
When we booked Lucia's property in Praiano, we knew we were going to be climbing a lot of steps, but we had no idea that when we reached the top of the property , we are going to get rewarded with the most amazing and serene views of the Amalfi Coast and that too from a private balcony !! It is a beautiful , clean and a well stocked property . What made it even better ?! Lucia ! What a wonderful, caring hostess ! She is so helpful and has immense knowledge of the Coast to be able to give you the most accurate and helpful advice, if asked.
Could not fault this place. The steps up to the house should not put you off as the view was absolutely unbeatable. The house was in a perfect location with a cute little market beneath it and many affordable and delicious restaurants close by. I would highly recommend this place to everyone.
We have had a wonderful week in Praiano and had been very lucky to find this wonderful appartement! All you need is in the house and Lucia is always there to help or to give you tipps! We loved to sit on the terrasse and had long nice hour with an great view to the bay and houses!!
We will come back !!!
This apartment was amazing! Newly renovated and enough space for our family of four. The view was breathtaking! Prepare yourself for 139 steps, but it is worth the walk. Lucia was very welcoming and so gracious. It was a pleasure meeting her and her family. We would definitely stay here again.
A very nice place, clean, comfortable, and well-equipped; nothing was missing. And what a stunning view from the terrace!! Our host, Lucia, warmly welcomed us and gave us plenty of useful information on how to travel around. All 3 of really enjoyed our stay there.
From the moment we arrived we we're treated like family. The place is amazing with beautiful views of Capri.
