This is possibly still one of the best memories our family talk about since our return from Europe 2013. Thank you soooooo much Elena and family for this fantastic opportunity to stay in your home at one of the most beautiful locations. The comfort, and ease of this holiday stay was exceptional. Your communication and friendly guidance made us feel like home. We miss our daily trips to Angela's for fresh local food and swimming in rock pool below the apartment....wow! Amazing
I was fortunate enough to spend some time with my family here. To say I was impressed is an understatement. The apartment is not your typical "vacation rental"- it truly feels like "home" (super clean, roomy, and comfortable). The big glass doors in the living area open out to the most stunning views of the sea.
The owner (Elena) is flexible, generous, and helpful which make the stay that much more pleasurable. She leaves nothing to chance or guesswork. She has suggestions and recommendations for every kind of traveler (restaurants, getting around, beaches, best gelaterias, etc.). We also stayed at her rental in Rome and could not be happier with our choice: super spacious (which is rare in Rome), super clean, and super convenient without being touristy. The same level of attentiveness to detail prevails in both locations.
If you're looking for an authentic Italian experience and stay, this is the place. My 2 sons, husband and I stayed here for a week and explored the Amalfi coast. The location can't be beat. The village of Praiano is like a place out of a cultural storybook that is very centrally located to the other more touristy towns. The locals are friendly and helpful and the restaurants serve up local authentic food.
The apartment was very clean and spacious. The decor and furnishings truly Italian. There's a private "pool" carved out of bedrock and the natural sea water. My boys had a blast playing in the waves that washed into the pool.
The owner and property manager were extremely helpful and flexible: icing on the cake. We can't wait to go back and (hopefully) stay longer next time.
My husband and I, our daughter and her boyfriend, have just returned from a wonderful two weeks in Italy. The highlight, however, was our week staying at Residence Deneb in Praiano. It was very comfortable and felt like home! The photos are a true indication of what it is like. We enjoyed beautiful sunsets from the terrace of the villa, swimming in the rockpool below, getting to know some of the locals in the delightful village, and eating delicious meals at the restaurants recommended by Elena. Praiano is perfectly placed to explore the Amalfi Coast! It doesn't matter what the weather is like, and we had everything from rain to beautiful sunshine, there is so much to see and do. Elena provided us with a very comprehensive list of activities! We could easily have had two weeks! I would definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives.
My first impression of the Amalfi coast and of the house itself is that the entire situation seems unrealistically beautiful. When I came out of the bedroom and stepped out on to the terrace, I kept seeing more and more sea until I thought it wouldn't be possible to see more, and then once I was all the way outside, sure enough there was even more. The house is very spacious for the number of people it sleeps- perhaps 3 times the size of other "Sleeps 4" places I've stayed in. It is decorated in a way that is tasteful and authentic to the region. It was very pleasing to me. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen was fully equipped for real cooking-- not just a bottle opener and silverware. I really appreciated that while we were trying out some of the numerous recipes that were recited to us with loving care by grocers and restauranteurs.
The only significant downside for us is that there were mosquitoes near sundown (we were there in September)-- so come prepared with long sleeves and pants, and make sure not to leave the screen doors open once it starts to get close to sundown. The stairs could be an issue for some (there are 70-some stairs between the parking area and the entrance, and a good many more to get down to the water. We knew about this going in so we counted it as much-needed exercise, but for the mobility-impaired it could be more of an issue.
The coast is loaded with things to do and great food all along the coast (and even inland, if you dare climb the mountains behind you!). We really enjoyed the Paper Museum in Amalfi as well as the various dramatic caves dotting the coast (the touristy one is nice but I enjoyed the adventure of getting a kayak and setting out to find our own. Even though the caves we found weren't quite as dramatic as the "Emerald Grotto", it felt so much more real to have found them ourselves!
This property is just simply heavenly. Whether you are looking for a home base to explore the Amalfi Coast for a couple days or a quiet retreat to spend a couple weeks...you've found it. Centrally located on the coastal road, the unit is on the lower level of the complex (Residence Deneb) with a fabulous grassy terrace overlooking nothing but the beautiful sea. 213 steps down to the sea and you arrive to a secluded "beach" with a natural pool connected to the sea...perfection! The apartment is well maintained and appointed very tastefully and comfortably. Additionally, the owners have lots of friends in the area that know them well who treat you very warmly...Alimentary Angela has all you need and is willing to deliver the most delicious food/wine on the planet and restaurant Il Pirata is magical for food, scenery, and service. I can't wait to go back...next time I will go for a lot more time (at least 10 days!) and have nothing on the itinerary but to enjoy that terrace. Praiano is an excellent choice for a stay on the Amalfi Coast as it is between Positano and Amalfi (centrally located) and a lot less touristy than those sites. I highly recommend this place!
