Casa Privata is the best villa to stay at on the Amalfi Coast. From my perspective, it has three things going for it. While there are many beautiful villas in the area, this villa has three differentiating features that make it unique. First, and most important, is its access to the ocean. I was surprised at the condition of most beaches on the Amalfi Coast-rocky and very crowded. You need to pay 10 euro for a chair/umbrella and will be sitting next to many other people. The beaches are overcrowded and the swimming area rocky and very limited. At Casa Privata, the slope of the property down to the water is gradual. While there are many stairs to get to the water, the cliffs by the water flatten out. The villa did a masterful job of creating a beautiful sunbathing area where there are platforms that allow for many chairs and umbrellas. There is a also a ladder into the water and your own private lagoon. The result is a spectacular setting for swimming in the crystal clear, warm water of the area. The second unique feature of the villa is the town it is located in-Praiano. Unlike Positano and Amalfi, it is not touristy at all and not that crowded. There are several great restaurants in the town and you can take a water taxi to many of them. By staying in Praiano, you can avoid the crowds, yet be very close to many surrounding areas to visit. Finally, the villa has amazing gardens and is well conceived architecturally. The owners speak fluent English and are very helpful in making arrangements for you. The breakfast every morning is excellent.
We were two families (10 people in total) and the six bedrooms easily accommodated us.
