|Further details indoors|
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.
|Further details outdoors|
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.
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.
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.
The Amalfi Coast 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.
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.
