Villa | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
What do you think about staying in the most sheltered and discrete home in the most photographed and spectacular fishing village on the Amalfi Coast? Villa Michelina is a charming retreat owned by one of the oldest and well-known families in the town of Praiano and they have been associated with the history and development of the town for many years.
The home and several other famous spots in the town belong to the proprietors who know just about all there is to know about welcoming tourists and providing them with a residence full of charm and comfort. Not by chance the owners of Villa Michelina are stars in our guest books with fans from Russia to Australia who praise their kindness and the marvelous buffet that they provide for their lucky guests on departure.
The villa needs nothing to make it sought after and appreciated by the many tourists who visit it and the estate agents wanting to promote it. It is difficult to imagine a more charming and at the same time comfortable and attractive location than that of Villa Michelina.
It is located in the very centre of the little fishing village called 'La Praia', a few steps from the famous beach of the same name. It can be reached directly from the state road SS 163, has a reserved private parking spot, and is surrounded by, yet not invaded by, bathing establishments and some of the best open air restaurants and bars on the entire Amalfi Coast.
The house plays an important part in one of the most picturesque and beautiful panoramas on the Amalfi Coast and is in a strategic position for the vacationer who wants to hone up on his ' do nothing skills' as well as those who want easy access to windsurfing, fishing, waterskiing, and boat connections to the islands and the entire Coast.
The bus that connects to Amalfi, Positano, Sorrento, and Salerno is a short walk from the door. The interior of the villa lacks absolutely nothing. There is a beautiful little swimming pool, lovely gardens, a great barbecue area and the home boasts every creature comfort. It is a fascinating piece of architecture in an enchanting environment and needs no make-up to further enhance its beauty.

The Amalfi Coast region
Located on the Italian Peninsula, with the Tyrrhenian Sea to the west, the small Flegrean Islands and Capri are also administratively part of the region.
Throughout much of its history Campania has been at the centre of Western Civilisation's most significant entities. The area was colonised by Ancient Greeks and was within Magna Gecia, until the Roman Republic began to dominate.
The Amalfi Coast, or Costiera Amalfitana in Italian, is a stretch of coastline on the southern side of the Sorrentine Peninsula of Italy (Province of Salerno), extending from Positano in the west to Vietri sul Mare in the east.

"Beautiful antique-filled home"
I thought we might be in for a treat from the photos on the site but it didn't prepare me for this stunning, quirky home. Michelina welcomed us with her homemade liqueur and fruit. If you get to try her cooking it is wonderful. We were there to shoot photos for our cookbook and needed a wonderful location, this villa certainly didn't disappoint. The pool is very small but pretty and there are plenty of levels to entertain on, the wonderful homely kitchen with a real fire, two terraces outside underneath the lemon trees - one with a bbq/grill. You can walk down to the restaurants on the coast or stay in and enjoy just being in the house.
