Profile

Fantastic villa overlooking the deep blue sea of the Amalfi Coast , located in the historic center of Praiano. Restored to splendor after an intense work of restoration, is just 100 meters from the panoramic road which leads to the picturesque beach of La Praia.

Area Information An infinity of little streets and steps line the terraced hillside where bright bougainvillea and scented geraniums lead the way to the sea through a maze of houses clinging to the rocks, majolica covered domes, and devotional shrines. Sunsets here, for the unusual morphology of the territory, are among the most suggestive and romantic of the coast.This is how Praiano, Plagianum in antiquity, presents itself. Set marvelously, gem like in a scenario of endless beauty in one of the points of the Amalfi Coast where our gaze and our soul are spirited away by the superb magnificence of nature in a class by itself: the Positano Bay. The bay stretches away from the Sorrento peninsula toward the sea up to Punta Campanella and in the background, the Homeric mermaids of the little “Li Galli” islands and the beautiful island of Capri.A place to retire for Roman nobility and the Doges of the ancient Amalfi Republic, Praiano has always attracted the élite, for discreet and relaxed moments of vacation, because it offers a more quiet and “authentic atmosphere than your noisy neighbors” – in the words of the Times On Line; far, then, from the usual tourist flows. With its privileged panoramic position on the Amalfi Coast, Villa Luce is an ideal starting point for excursions to other neighboring towns on the coast.

Praiano has jealously preserved its most authentic soul, revealing it slowly to the visitor, with picturesque views of the highest impact. Take the marina di Praia, for example, a fjord inlet between two high cliffs that is reachable by land or by sea. During the day it is a fresh and vibrant typical fishing village, with a lido and a scuba diving center, while at night it reveals its worldly soul with trendy restaurants for the enjoyment of a candle lit dinner of excellent fresh fish, all the while lulled by the harmonious sound of the waves crashing on the shore. At the Navy guard on the tip of the promontory, stands the medieval “Torre a Mare”, currently functioning as an artist’s studio and venue for exhibitions during the summer.

Continuing along the coast and accessible only by sea, we find the beautiful Cala della Gavitella, with the Grado Tower built during the Spanish viceroyalty, and Gavitella’s picturesque beach, the only beach on the Amalfi Coast kissed by the sun until sunset.

And finally, a myriad of little streets and steps that the industriousness and ingenuity of man have “carved” from the rock to provide access to the sea by way of a gently sloping path, proceeding along the terraced land through the Mediterranean sagebrush, tasting the intimate pleasure of contact with nature, genuine, authentic and sincere

Heating   Usage will be metered throughout your stay and you will be charged accordingly. Charges must be paid directly on the spot to the owner or his/her representative before departing. Please note that heating in Italy, when not subject to restrictions by the local Government, is more expensive compared to other countries. If you look for a property in low season, make sure to ask for an estimate of the heating cost. You may be asked to make a supplementary deposit for heating expenses.

Water and Electricity    Please note that most of the properties in our portfolio are not the typical purpose-built Mediterranean holiday villas. Most are converted farmhouses or former manor houses, full of character and history. Water shortages do occur; please use it sparingly during the summer months. At the same time, Italy is probably one of the few countries in the world where the government has introduced a system of electricity limitators to contain the national consumption. This means you must be careful when using more than one appliance at once because the limitator will shut the electricity off.

 

Internet Connection   Many of our properties have an internet connection. From our experience, when a connection is interrupted due to technical reasons beyond our control, it is unfortunately very difficult, despite our efforts, to receive immediate assistance from some of the internet providers operating in Italy. We therefore strongly suggest that those who need to access their emails should bring their own BlackBerry, or a similar portable device. Please note that in any case we cannot accept responsibility for lack of these services.
