“Comfortable stay with fantastic views”
Reviewed 8 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We had the most relaxing stay. The villa was well equipped and very comfortable - Giovanna even provided a beach bag with towels. The location was great - just five minutes from the picturesque beach with its great restaurants. We got used to the steps and they are everywhere you go along the Amalfi. The best thing was the view from terrace - it was just amazing. We only wished we could have stayed longer.

“This serene place will linger in your soul....”

My husband and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary, and it could not have been more romantic and special. Casa Azzurra is a perfect little getaway, with a private terrace, overlooking the peaceful Mediterranean. We watched the sun and moon rise every morning, and the sunsets were equally spectacular. The full kitchen was lovely and well supplied, so I was able to cook several dinners as well as breakfasts. There are markets nearby for very good fruit, vegetables, chicken, fish and meat. It was so quiet in this apartment, with only the lapping water against the boats. We honestly did not want to leave.

Wifi was spotty, but we were happy for the electronic break anyway. One should be prepared (and fit) to climb fairly steep stairs to this property. However, in one week, we were very acclimated to them, and did not find them difficult at all.

Our hostess, Giovanna is so cordial and friendly, helping us with wifi and leaving a bottle of Limoncello to enjoy. I will never forget this vacation and my thoughts often drift away to the beauty of Praiano and the Casa Azzurra.

“Beautiful Villa & lovely area”

We stayed here for 1 week & the only problem is it was too short & we didn't want to leave.
After 3 weeks of busy travel in Italy it was the best decision to book Casa Azzurra for our final week. The villa is spacious, comfortable, good wifi, nicely decorated, great value for money and has all facilities to stay for extended periods. The view from the large balcony is amazing and was a perfect spot for diner or to relax with a local red wine and reflect on the day. There is quite a few steps to the villa as is with most of the Amalfi Coast area, so I would not recommend for the elderly or frail. Local super market is 10 min walk, bus stop very close with regular buses to Amalfi & Positano( approx. 25min bus ride), great restaurants near by, the pebble beaches in this area were beautiful with crystal clear water & safe swimming. Praiano is a gem of a place, great location between Amalfi & Positano, is more relaxed and not as busy as other areas on the coast. Giovanna and her dad the owner were nice people, easy to deal with and very helpful. We will be back to Casa Azzurra and highly recommend it.

“Couldn't be better”
Reviewed 31 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

As other reviews have said, the balcony and view is what persuaded us to book Casa Azzurra. It did not disappoint and is possibly even more amazing than the photos can show! However, that is just the beginning! Everything is absolutely perfect. Giovanna and Luca ensured we had a plentiful supply of information about the local area, even providing bus tickets as they cannot be bought on the bus itself. The kitchen has all of the equipment you could wish for, meaning we could easily cook and eat on the balcony. The property is also much bigger than we were expecting, and the attention to detail is excellent.

Praiano is a beautiful village with friendly locals, and the nearby shop is fantastic (try the olives from the counter at the back!). The bus stop is a couple of minutes walk away to easily get along the coast to Amalfi, Positano etc etc. There are also lots of nice restaurants and a few bars all within walking distance.

We can't praise Casa Azzurra highly enough and will be recommending it to all of our friends.

Thank you Giovanna and Luca!

“Just wonderful...”

I think it was the balcony that sold Casa Azzurra to us in the first instance. The beautiful sea view. But on arrival, we loved everything. The kitchen, living room/dining room, quirky bedroom... We got used to the steps leading up to the property very quickly (there are steps wherever you go in the Amalfi Coast). The local supermarket was only a 10 minute walk away (five minutes for the really fit) and the bus stop was a few minutes down the steps, very useful for trips to Ravello/Amalfi/Positano/Sorrento. (Giovanna kindly left some SITA bus tickets that we could use as you can't purchase them from the driver.) We also walked the Path of the Gods which although tiring was completely worth it — and you can join it from Praiano. Casa Azzurra was the ideal place to do everything we wanted... And Praiano itself is beautiful, perhaps not as pretty as Positano, but more locals (all of whom are very friendly) and much less touristy. Giovanna and Luca (her father) could not have been more helpful... And what better way to start a holiday with a shot of Limoncello!
