Our stay: six days.
The villa was immaculately clean with a generous supply of dishes, cutlery, etc. The villa seemed to be recently renovated and met our every need: including a breath-taking view of the town of Priaino and a 180 degree view of the mediteranean sea below, and a small private pool on the lane-side of the villa.
An excellent restaurant was a five minute stroll down the lane; a small, but well-stocked grocery and household supplies store was a further short walk away. You can buy fresh, locally produced vegetables, cheeses, meats and wine at the store. The one village ATM appears to be in service only seasonally, so plan ahead.
We rarely ask for assistance/input from the property owner when we travel, but we needed touring advice and the owner was generous with her time to ensure that we were well informed and happy. She took the time to make arrangements for us and made sure that our tour guides were english speaking and friendly. We were so grateful for her assistance. We had such a wonderful stay and will return.
One of the best Airbnb experiences I have ever had. Beautiful apartment overlooking the sea and mountainside of Praiano. A little bit of a trek to get there as we had to drag our bags a way, but well worth it. Lemons, basil, eggplant, swimming pool all right out the door. Spotlessly clean and modern. Incredible views from the gorgeous balcony/patio. Lucia was gracious, kind, helpful and I hope to return someday.
The pictures of the website, while beautiful, do not do this villa justice. The bedrooms are spacious, the bathrooms are all very modern and up-to-date and the taste of the decorations perfect. We used the kitchen often. After shopping at the grocery store (located just five minutes by foot) we would prepare our dinner taking full advantage of the green garden that they made available to their guests.
We used the villa's central location to explore all of the towns up and down the Amalfi Coast. We enjoyed taking the steps down the the beach and restaurants. We used the pool daily -- which was a great option after a long day of sightseeing. We sat on the balcony over looking the harbor every evening watching the sunset. It was magical.
This villa was more than I was expecting and I was expecting a lot. From the moment I was in touch with Veronica to my last goodbyes to Lucia and Giosi, I felt that everyone wanted my family to have a great time. They helped us reserve our excursion to Capri, go on a personal wine tour (excellent) and get us from point A to point B.
I would strongly recommend this place to anyone who wants to explore the Coast or just relax and enjoy the overall atmosphere if Villa Virginia.
This house is so beautiful, so comfortable, and so well equipped with all the conveniences of excellent quality. The view from the deck overlooking the ocean and praiano is to die for. The setting in the front yard with the beautiful half moon shape pool surrounded by the veggie and fruit garden is so enticing that you wouldn't want to leave. The managing staff was extremely helpful in getting us car service and giving recommendations for sites and tour companies. Our daughter lost her luggage going there, and Veronica, Lucia, and Giosi the driver went above and beyond their call of duty to help us finally retrieve it. Needless to say, we had a fantastic stay. By the way, you can pick the veggies and herbs and fruit from the garden and have the freshest and tastiest farm to table dishes of your own. And the well stocked grocery store is only minutes away.
Praiano turned out to be the perfect base for our Amalfi Coast visit - close to the attractions yet away from the crowds. And what better oasis for our down time than Villa Virginia. Comfortable, sophisticated, quiet and gorgeous all tucked away in the nicest neighborhood. Lucia, our host, thought of everything and was so helpful in tips to make the most of our visit. The Villa is perfectly laid out for singles traveling together or for a family. Highly recommend!
This home is perfect! Light and bright with spectacular views from every room. The home is immaculate and Lucia has thought of everything you might need or want--soaking tub, fluffy white bathrobes, a breakfast basket. She's a great tour guide and filled us in on everything we needed to know for our planned activities--great English. Short walk to bus stop, good restaurants and grocery store. Bonus: a private pool!
The location is really convenient, the place is breath-taking!!! It looks even better in person! The host is absolutely the most wonderful woman we had met on the trip. The small details like bath towels, beach bags, beach towels, are ALL provided. Lucia even helped our husbands find parking and help them park their cars. This enhanced our experience. A ton of close restaurants are nearby. The place itself is spotless, excellent service from the host. A beautiful place and lovely experience. Would love to go back soon!
