Christmas in Praiano: The Christmas in Coastal Amalfitana is fantastic there are very beautiful demonstrations to Positano, Amalfi, Ravello
Every year, since 1606, Praiano inhabitants used to decorate its balconies, terraces, gardens with lighting system composed by wax and oil. This custom handed from 1599, when Dominican Monks came to the Monastery of Santa Maria a Castro, placed on the hill above Praiano.“Luminaria” is an Event which comes true every year from August 1st to August 4th to celebrate San Domenico.On August 4th , very early in the morning (the first Mass is at 6.30 am), Praiano celebrates San Domenico’s Festival.“Luminaria” has a particular meaning: Domenico’s Mother, before giving him birth, she dreamed a dog with a torch in his mouth to burn the world. So when Domenico was born he had to diffuse “God’s word all over the world”.

About the owner: I Vincenzo Cuomo , the son of the owners, I witnessed the creation from nothing of this place fascinating and charming for the holidays, thanks to the enormous sacrifices of my parents, who are deprived of many things in their lives : ' My father worked as a machinist on large commercial ships , sacrificing the affections of the family and this has allowed us to build a piece at a time, this fantastic property . My mother had the patience to stay without my father , because of the distance. the management of the villa was and is done at the household level , and my brother who helped build it , dealing with the maintenance of the structure.

All together we go ' Today ' to realize our dream of seeing , grow this company to offer our visitors a wonderful memory of this piece of paradise.
