Casa Susanna is a bright and elegant apartment which faces the sun and the sea. It sleeps four people. From Casa Susanna you will enjoy a breathtaking view of the sea and of the coast, from Positano to the island of Capri and of the small Li Galli islands. Casa Susanna is 60 square meters (645 square feet). It features a nice private terrace with a view of the sea, air conditioning (please read description below to check in which rooms the units are installed) and winter heating.

You will be at a short distance from the center of Praiano, where you will find restaurants and the shops. You will find the stop for the SITA bus a few meters (feet) away and the closest beach (Spiaggia della Gavitella) at roughly 500 meters (550 yards) including 400 stairway steps. You will reach Casa Susanna from the street level going down approximately 12 stairway steps.

You will not need a car to stay at Casa Susanna. If you do have one, you will be able to park it along the public roads (the actual distance might vary depending on the availability of parking spaces).

Casa Susanna is an ancient fishermen's house, completely renewed in 2009.

When you arrive on the large terrace you will be happy to have chosen Casa Susanna for your vacation: your sight will be able to wander free over an uninterrupted wide horizon of sky and sea, and over one of the most beautiful seascapes that the charming coast of Amalfi is able to offer.

Below the terrace you will see short tract of coast, and then the cliff steeply drops into the sea. This tract of coast is covered by the green of the olive trees, broken here and there by the white roofs of a few small houses. Further away, your sight will embrace a wide view of the sea and of the coast which surrounds the characteristic village of Positano, and will reach Punta Campanella and the island of Capri. The famous Faraglioni of Capri can be seen at the horizon, and, closer, you can admire the small islands of Li Galli.

A large window separates the living room from the terrace, allowing you to enjoy the splendid view of the sea from inside.

You will be able to walk to the sea and to a characteristic beach cut into the cliff (called "La Gavitella") along a path that includes approximately 400 steps. A bit further away, at approximately 1.5 km (one mile), you will find the beautiful beach of Praia, which can be reached by bus, and where you will be able to rent small boats and take diving classes. During the good seasons cafes and restaurants are open at both beaches.

If you like hiking, in the area you will find walks that are famous for their extraordinary beauty, such as the "Sentiero degli Dei": Path of the Gods.

Casa Susanna is the right choice if you are looking for a simple and comfortable place and for the most authentic charm of the Amalfi Coast, just out of the frantic holiday life of the most crowded areas.

The tourist spots of the coast are easily reached, since just a few steps from the house you can take the local bus, which connects Praiano to the beach of Praia (1.5 km, 1.5 miles) and with Positano (6 km, 4 miles). Long distance buses are also available, and will allow you to reach Amalfi, Positano, Sorrento, Naples, Pompeii, Paestum and so on. Ferries to reach Capri, Sorrento as well as the other villages along the coast are available in Positano (6 km, 4 miles) and in Amalfi (8 km, 5 miles).

The Campania region

If you think you have no idea of where Campania is, think again. This fascinating land, rich in gulfs, islands and legendary places, is home to the charming landscapes of the Amalfi Coast, Sorrento, the Cilento National Park, Capri and Ischia.

The Campania region is situated in the South of Italy and bounded by the Tyrrhenian Sea (that’s the name of that stretch of Mediterranean). The region is divided into five provinces, whose capitals are Salerno, Caserta, Avellino, Benevento and Naples (Napoli). Naples is also the capital city of the region itself. With roughly 6 million of residents, half of which lives around the city of Naples, Campania has more people than Finland, packed in an area which is 200 times smaller.

If you are fond of archeology, architecture, or simply want to see history come back to life, Campania is a must. The archeological heritage is huge: the temples left by the Greeks in Paestum, the buried towns of Pompeii and Herculaneum, the remains of Velia, the masterpieces kept in the museums, the churches… and, of course!, the Royal Palace of Caserta, built to be the most sumptuous palace of Europe, with its 1200 rooms.

If the majesty you prefer is the majesty of nature, Campania will not disappoint you. The sandy beaches and the crystal-clear waters of the Cilento National Park, the amazing scenery of the Amalfi Coast, the islands of the Gulf of Naples are just a sampler of what lies ahead of you. From the underground depths of the caves of Pertosa to the heights of Mount Vesuvius, there is something for everyone. By the way, being Mount Vesuvius an active volcano, we respectfully suggest you visit sooner rather than later.

An outline of Campania would not be complete without a mention of its culinary tradition. Many of the world-known Italian dishes have their roots in Campania: pizza, spaghetti, mozzarella, limoncello, cannelloni… Italians know Campania well for being one of the regions that offer the best food, and definitely the region where you can taste the best coffee. Espresso, cappuccino and now interesting variations on the theme such as hazelnut coffee make the day of the residents of Campania, and will make yours as well.

So don’t miss your chance to enjoy the holiday of a lifetime in this beautiful land, where art, history, nature and tradition come together to offer unforgettable thrills.

Amalfi Coast

Behind Capo Sottile, on the far slopes of Monte Tre Cavalli, and looking eastwards, there is the little town of Praiano.

This popular seaside resort has kept its character of quiet fishermen's village through the centuries. Located halfway between Amalfi (8 km) and Positano (7 km), Praiano is just one step away from the two most lively villages of the coast. The Sita bus line connects Praiano to Amalfi, Positano and Sorrento. The local orange bus circles around the village and takes you down to the beach and as far as Positano as well.

As a traveller going to Praiano you will appreciate its slow pace. At the same time, the quality of its restaurants as well as the friendly atmosphere of the local cafes, such as Bar del Sole, will not disappoint you. Small as it is, the village does have its own grocery stores and ATM.

The parish church, dedicated to Saint Luke, is located in the upper part of the town, in a spot with a lovely view; the church houses a precious silver figure of Saint Luke.

Praiano's beach is the small, enchanting Marina di Praia, which is situated at the end of the wild Praia valley. The surrounding cliffs have been deeply marked by erosion. On a rocky promontory stands the cylindrical mass of Torre a Mare: a medieval structure which recalls the centuries-old struggle of the area's inhabitants
