Terrace-style hotel Villa Bellavista lies, surrounded by lemon and olive trees, directly on the steep coast of a coastal bay, in one of the car free stepped alleys somewhat below Piazza S. Gennaro in 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. The name of the hotel “Bella Vista” – i.e. “beautiful view” – keeps what it promises. Not only romantics go into rhapsodies about the amazing scenery.
The 20 sunny rooms with sea view at Hotel Villa Bellavista are designed and held in different colors.
The well-tended 3-bed room we have chosen for you is furnished with a double bed and a single bed as well as TV, WLAN, air conditioning and fan.
The bathroom is equipped with hair dryer and shower or bathtub/bidet/WC.
Relaxing on your private balcony with a view of the Amalfi Coast, Capri and the archipelago of "Li Galli", you experience marvelous sunsets.
Not even when dining do you have to do without this panorama. In good weather you can enjoy your meals out in the open on the sea-view terrace.
There is a saying which goes like "You eat with your eyes too" or "Eating is a visual pleasure, too." Meals are served and presented in a tasteful way and backed up by a terrific setting.
The sun terrace is found on the top floor: enjoy the sun while relaxing on the sun beds or take it easy in the shade of the parasol.
Should you want to learn Italian or improve your knowledge of the language during your holidays, you might consider taking lessons in Italian with Signora Adele, the owner of the hotel (€ 25/hour).
A ca. 5-minute walk along a foot path (with steps) takes you tho the bathing area at the sea near the Saracen tower. Do not be surprises at the sight of heavily loaded mules along the way. As there are ways where neither cars nor motorcycles can go, people resort to what has been tried and tested and rely on the help of these animals.
At the foot of the steep coast crystal-clear water awaits you The hotel has got a private boat, which takes you to “Grotta dello Smeraldo” or even to Capri. Those who prefer to spend a day at the beach can rent sun beds and parasols. Cool, refreshing drinks are available at the bar.
Further bathing bays not too far off are „Marina di Praia“ (1 km) and „La Cala della Gavitella“, the latter the only beach on the Amalfi coast caressed by the sun until sunset.
From Praiano you may make various interesting excursions. Anyone fearing the drive along the twisting road may also get along very well with the public transportation system, the SITA buses or the Metro del Mare (during the summer months). >> Further information and timetables
Amalfi (9 km) is probably the most popular town on the coast of the same name. Not much is really known about the origin of Amalfi, yet there are theories that the place was founded by 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 sea republics.
The glamour of Amalfi today has not yet faded and attracts many tourists. Apart from the typical architecture it is the enchanting location, which distinguishes Amalfi.
Positano (6 km) to the ease was discovered by artitsts in the 20ies of the 19th century and is still a popular destination for stars and starlets.
Positano is also the end of the most famous hiking trail of the coast, the so-called ”Sentiero degli Dei”. The seaside town is also a good starting point for further hiking tours.
From Positano as well as from Amalfi there are ferry connections to Capri or Salerno.
