"Bella vista", beautiful view - The name of the hotel keeps what it promises. Surrounded by lemon and olive trees, it lies directly on the steep coast of a coastal bay and somewhat below Piazza S. Gennaro at Praiano.
Embedded between Positano and Amalfi right in the heart of the Amalfi Coast, the former fishing village has, for the most part, still been spared the onrush of day trippers. In one of the car-free, stepped alleys, terrace-style Hotel Villa Bellavista awaits you with 20 sunny rooms designed in different colors.
The well-tended 3-bed room we have chosen for your stay is furnished with a double bed and a single bed, TV, WiFi, air conditioning and fan, includes a bathroom with shower or bathtub and WC/bidet/hair dryer and opens onto a balcony, where you can relax and enjoy marvelous sunsets with a view of the Amalfi Coast, Capri and the archipelago of "Li Galli".
Weather permitting, you can dine 'with panorama' out in the open, on the hotel's sea view terrace. There is a saying which goes like "You eat with your eyes too", which in some way might fit: The tastefully prepared meals are backed up by a terrific scenery. On the sun terrace on the top floor you can relax on sun beds in the sun or take it easy in the shade of a parasol.
If you want to learn Italian or improve your knowledge of the language during your stay, you might consider taking lessons with Signora Adele, the owner of the hotel (€ 25/hour).
Excursions by hotel boat are offered to "Grotta dello Smeraldo" and even Capri. For your day at the beach you can rent sun beds and sun shades. Cool, refreshing drinks are available at the bar.
Ca. 5 minutes along a foot path (with steps) take you to the bathing area at the sea near the Saracen tower. Don't be surprised at the sight of heavily loaded mules along the way. Where vehicles cannot go, people resort to what has been tried and tested. At the foot of the steep coast crystal-clear water awaits you. The bathing bay of "Marina di Praia" is 1 km off and "La Cala della Gavitella" is the only beach on the Amalfi Coast caressed by the sun until sunset.
From Praiano you can start on various interesting excursions. If you wish to avoid driving your car along the winding coastal road, you get along quite well by using the public means of transportation, the SITA buses or the Metro del Mare (during the summer months). >> Further information
Amalfi (9 km) probably is the best-known town on the Amalfi Coast. Little is known about its origins; it is said to have been founded by the Romans in the 4th century AD. In the 9th century, Amalfi became one of the leading towns in Italy and the first of the four maritime republics. The glamour of Amalfi has not faded, is still present today and attracts many tourists. Its typical architecture and its enchanting location make Amalfi so fascinating.
Positano, 6 km to the west of Praiano, was 'discovered' by artists in the 20s of the 19th century and has remained a popular destination of stars and starlets. It is the trail end of the coast’s most famous hiking trail "Sentiero degli Dei" and a good starting point for other hiking tours. From Positano as well as from Amalfi boats depart for Capri and Salerno.
You want to discover the Amalfi Coast on hiking tours, but not on their own? Consider taking part in Hotel Villa Bellavista's 1-week "Hiking at the Amalfi Coast".
