Villa Geraldina is a gracious 80-square-meter (about 861 square feet) house

overlooking the sea which features a terrace, a garden, and straight access to

the sea. It is 30 meters (about 98 feet) away from the sea. It can sleep seven

people, and it is equipped with parking space and winter heating.

The house is located in Praiano, which is halfway between Amalfi and Positano,

about 7 km (about 4.3 miles) away from both places.

There is a double bedroom, a bedroom with a 140 cm (about 55 inches) bed, a

bedroom with four bunk beds, two bathrooms, a large living-room, and a small

kitchen.

The place

Villa Geraldina is part of a large and white house attached to a steep stretch

of rocky coast overlooking the sea. The house is located halfway between the

coastal state road and the sea. Around the house, all you will see is the green

of the Mediterranean vegetation, which grows lushly amidst rocks and the blue of

the sky.

Arriving at the villa is quite easy: on the coastal state road, you will find a

white gate which leads to a convenient private parking space. Then you have to

go ahead on foot for about 30 meters (about 98 feet) until you get to the villa;

that will consist of about 50 steps to climb.

Having a car is not necessary during your stay: the bus stop is 50 meters (about

164 feet) away from the villa. You will find the first shops and restaurants

about 300 meters (about 984 feet) away.

Villa Geraldina faces the sea and the sun. The house Geraldina is part of has

been built to hold vacation homes and has been divided into apartments. The

other apartments are used by the owners during their vacation and they are not

available for rent. Residents share the access to the sea.

The access to the sea

In order to reach the sea from Villa Geraldina, you have to descend a trail dug

in the rocky coast overlooking the sea. It is a walk which you will enjoy, for

all along the path you will feast your eyes on a panorama of breathtaking view.

There are about 200 steps along the trail and also benches where you can sit

down, relax, and enjoy the scenery. Halfway to the sea, you will find an angle

equipped with a shower amid the rocks.

Once you have arrived at sea level, you will see a concrete platform where you

can sunbathe and from which you can jump into the water. You will also find a

natural pool formed by sea water which runs into a bowl-shaped area among rocks.

Even your kids will be able to swim in the place.

The garden and the terrace

In front of Villa Geraldina, you will find a small garden with a spectacular

view of the sea. One part of the garden is shaded by a large olive tree. In the

garden, you will see two tables with chairs and a small barbecue available for

you to enjoy outdoor meals.

The other part of the garden has the shape of a triangular terrace, and it is

turned towards the sea just like the prow of a ship: as you lean, all your eyes

will see is the blue of the sea and the sky! And if you look down below you, you

will be able to see the waves caressing the rocks, hear their sounds, and feel

their perfume.

By looking to the side, you will be able to enjoy the view of a wide and

picturesque stretch of coast which consists of the villages of Praiano and Capo

di Conca dei Marini. An umbrella and some deck chairs are placed right in front

of the sea and all the scenery: that will be your favorite place to relax

outdoors!

The house

The house is one storey-high. You will step into the living-room straight from

the garden. The living-room is a large room illuminated by a high arched patio

door through which you can see a splendid view of the sea even from the inside.

Near the patio door, you will find a couch and two armchairs, and further ahead,

there is the dining table. In the living-room, you will also have the television, cd and dvd player, some fans, and the telephone.

Near the living-room there is small but well-equipped kitchen, where you will

find a four-burner stove, an oven, a fridge with a freezer, a

washing machine, microwave oven and small electrical appliances.

A small corridor separates the living-room from the main double bedroom and the

main bathroom. This bedroom is spacious and features a window with a magnificent

view of the sea. In the bathroom you will find a bathtub which has also a shower

above it.

You can reach the two other bedrooms straight from the living-room. Both

bedrooms are quite small. In one, you will find a bed which is 140 cm (about 55

inches) large. This bedroom has a window overlooking the living-room and a

bathroom with shower inside. The other bedroom has two sets of bunk beds, which

allow four people to sleep in the room. This bedroom has a window overlooking

the garden.

Villa Geraldina features furnishings which are well cared for, complete, bright,

and pleasant. The floor is in hand-painted ceramics, which is a splendid sample

of the typical artifact of the Amalfi Coast.

The beach

The closest beach is the charming beach of Marina di Praia, situated in a point

where a small valley dug by the erosion meets, among the high rocks, a sea of

the colour of the emerald.

You can walk there along a tract of the coastal road, and then taking a "scalinatella"

that will take you to the Saracen watch tower by the sea. From there you will be

able to take a charming downhill pedestrian alley, cut into the rock, sheer

above the sea, which will take you to the beach.

Along the walk you will find a couple of small and characteristic cafes and

restaurants, open in the good season, where you will be able to have breakfast

or dine on the rocks above the sea.

This same beach can also be reached by car or by bus. On this beach you will be

able to practice several activities, rent boats and board small boats that will

take you to swim in fascinating inlets of the coast, that can only be reached by

boat.

Another nearby beach is the one in Positano, at approximately 7 km (11 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.

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 against the attacks of pirates.
