Villa Angiolina is a splendid and luminous two-story villa built sheer above the sea. It sleeps four people. From Villa Angiolina you will enjoy a breathtaking view of the sea, of Praiano and the coast of Amalfi. Villa Angiolina is 120 square meters (1290 square feet). It features two wide private terraces with a view of the sea, a private garden, air conditioning (please read description below to check in which rooms the units are installed), winter heating and WI-FI Internet access.

You will be roughly 1 km (0.6 miles) from the center of Praiano, where you will find restaurants, shops and public transportation. You will find a grocery store at 200 meters (220 feet), the stop for the Flavio Gioia bus Positano - Praiano line at 300 meters (990 feet) and the closest beach at 2 km (roughly 1.25 miles). You will reach Villa Angiolina from the street level going up a 200-meters (660-feet) public walkway that includes approximately 160 stairway steps.

For a succesful stay at Villa Angiolina we recommend having a car. You will be able to park it at approximately 250 meters (270 yards), for a fee, in a private parking lot. Private parking must be reserved ahead of time; we kindly ask you to let our staff know, so that we can make the necessary arrangements for you.

Villa Angiolina has been built taking away the space from the rock, almost on top of the high cliff sheer above the sea that encloses the tiny bay of the beach called "Praia". 

From the beach, on the bottom, if you look up at the sky, you will be able to spot the two white columns of the terrace of Villa Angiolina on top of the vegetation that grows on the cliff.

The other way around, if you stand on the terrace you will see the cliff below you like if you were on top of a skyscraper made of rock and covered by the thriving Mediterranean vegetation. It is especially charming to see, vertically below you, the small cape where the ancient circular Saracen Tower stands. The tower was built a thousand years ago as a defence for the small bay of Praia. The sea in the inlet guarded by the tower is deep blue, and it is spotted with the blob of colour of the small boats that are moored there.

If you let your sight wander, you will see a wide horizon of sky, sea and coast, up to the characteristic cape of Conca dei Marini, which divides Praiano from Amalfi.

The air is clean and perfumed by flowers, the view is a continuous spell, ever-changing as the hours of the day and of the night go by.

So much beauty will convey to you that joy of life and to be right there that everybody calls the “magic” of the Divina Costiera, and which will make you happy of having chosen this place for your vacation.

The terrace of Villa Angiolina, with its elegant arched roof, its white columns, the flowers, the elegant furnishing, is a perfect framework to enjoy so much beauty in peace and relax. It is indeed a nice place to spend your holidays, a place that is worth to be discovered, even if you will have to walk and to climb some steps to get there. As a matter of fact, the villa is at the top of the village of Praiano, in a pedestrian precinct. To reach it you will have to walk for approximately 200 meters (220 yards) and to climb 160 steps. It is a walk that will allow you to discover an authentic and untouched corner of the Amalfi Coast, one of those that made the area deserve the title of “World Heritage Site” awarded by UNESCO. Indeed, this area has not been changed to please the masses of tourists, here you will not find shops but only authentic locals, which will welcome you with courtesy and liking. Don’t be surprised if the people that you meet in the street will say hello even if they don’t know you! Just say hello to them and smile back!

The closest beach is the beautiful beach of Marina di Praia, situated in a natural scenery of extraordinary beauty. You will find it at the feet of two tall rocky walls, and it can be reached descending a 'scalinatella' (a stairway cut into the cliff) that leads to the Saracen Tower by the sea, and hence walking along a downhill pedestrian alley that will take you straight to this enchanting beach, where the sea has emerald water. From this point, with short boat trips, you will also be able to visit the surrounding coastline, particularly the suggestive Suppraiano Grottos, and Africana Grotto. You will also be able to reach the beach taking a bus that, during the good season, stops every 20 minutes.

Since the villa is not easily reachable, we can not recommend it if you feel that climbing many steps might be difficult for you.

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

Bucine is a lively village lying among Florence, Arezzo and Siena. Because of its particular position, it has been strategically momentous since the Roman Age. This lovely place became even more important during the Middle Ages, when contended among local seigniories and big cities.

Bucine is located in the Valdambra, at 207 metres above the sea level, and counts nearly 9000 inhabitants.

In the XIII century, the main local authorities were the Counts Guidi of Modigliana, that in 1225 put themselves under the municipality and protection of Arezzo. Afterwards Bucine has been contended between the noble families Ubertini di Chitignano and Tarlati... squabbles among nobles swept away from the Republic of Florence, that made Bucine residence of the podestà in 1335.

Here you will be able to admire the Romanesque parish church of Galatrona, as well as the church of St. Apollinare and the Castle of Galatrona.

Set up into a league known as “Lega di Valdambra”, Bucine supported Florence during its campaign in order to annex the properties of the Counts Ubertini, which were conquered between the fourteenth and fifteenth century.

Under the the Medicean Grand Duchy, Bucine became a marquisate, given to the family of Vitelli by Ferdinand II, in 1654.

The village underwent another change during the Napoleonic Empire becoming, in 1811, one of the “mairies” (town hall) of the Prefecture of Arno. When the Empire collapsed in 1815, Bucine was reintegrated into the Grand Duchy, getting the status of “Podesteria del Bucine Valdambra”: a huge territory including 24 towns under the municipality of Arezzo. That is why the area of Bucine still has such a wide extension.
