Beauty is difficult to define and it leaves the beholder speechless and breathless. It may be for this reason that the guests at Villa Benedetta write few words in the guest book.
For many of them it is simply the ‘most beautiful house on the Amalfi Coast'. For others it is ‘ a piece of paradise' or simply ‘ paradise ‘ This is not difficult to understand and we proudly represent it as an authentic jewel of local architecture.
Constructed during the golden age of architecture on the Amalfi Coast, Villa Benedetta was for many years the retreat of two classic Italian ladies; two sisters , dedicated to art and culture, who gave birth to a family refuge perched far away from any confusion, every intrusion, every banality and vulgarity of the world.
It is harmoniously set into the rock, facing and overhanging the sea. Villa Benedetta is the ideal residence for whoever wants to rediscover the pleasures and the tastes of the good life.
Surrounded by nature with dream-like glimpses from every window, Villa Benedetta is the perfect house for staying together and sharing precious moments of intimacy with loved ones.
There are no neighbours to disturb, no noise from the world to upset the peaceful quiet of the breezes off the sea, the light of the sky and the perfume of the flowers.
There are many little angles ideal for eating, reading, napping, chatting, being together, hand-holding and getting back in touch. Terraces, sunning spots, little oases of centuries-old Mediterranean brush and a splendid barbecue area complete the exterior of this home that is completely enveloped in the panorama of one of the most fascinating corners of the Gulf of Salerno.
The interior of the home, with a fully- equipped kitchen, 2 bathrooms , living room and 4 bedrooms is comfortable, elegant and rich in style details.
The furnishings are contemporary and the home has all modern comforts including internet service. The beach is directly under the villa and there you will find one of the most beautiful fishing villages on the Amalfi Coast with a little church, bars, wonderful restaurants all scattered here and there along romantic little lanes.
The SITA bus stop which connects to Amalfi and Sorrento and the ‘orange' bus which connects with the centre of Praiano and Positano is a mere 60 steps below the villa.
During the summer season there is boat service for Capri and Ischia and the possibility of private boat rental on the beach.

We loved staying at this house. The location is like no other: alone on a Clift over the marina si Praiano beach. The views from the house are breathtaking and we never tired of them. The A/C was great for those warm nights. Maria who checked us in was amazing! She took us grocery shopping the first day and explained how to get around. All her recommendations were great. She was so welcoming and warm and really made a positive impact on our vacation. Highly recommend this house!
“A very special trip with friends on the Amalfi coast. This villa was a HUGE part of it! Location location location! Deserves 10 stars out of 5. Breathtaking day and night. And Praiano is the perfect mix of dolce vita and amenities without the hordes. The space comfortably fit our group (8 ppl). We enjoyed a home cooked dinner from Mr Baldo (suggested) the first night to celebrate our friends’ engagement...pricey but worth it! There are also a few restaurants and the grocery store in town that offer pick up and drop off at no extra cost. Wonderful! We didn’t need a car the whole trip! Maria is lovely. Quick communications and very welcoming.”
“Lovely location in Praiano and a stunning view of the sea and coast. Quite a few steps up to the villa and it’s perched on a cliff side , so not ideal for some guests maybe. Maria is super helpful re checking in, getting settled and organised. Much happier we stayed here rather than Positano or Amalfi
Spectacular location on the cliff over looking everything A lot of steps but that’s Praino you’ll definitely drop a few pounds there , Unique setting in an amazing coastal area Marie very nice and helpful
“Villa Benedetta is an incredible location. It has the most spectacular 180 degree views overlooking the coastline and the beach of Praiano. My family loved our stay in Praiano, walking down to the beach and having lunch, visiting Amalfi and Ravello and hiring a boat to Capri. Maria was a very good host. She generously assist us with our check in. She provided helpful advice including how to get groceries from the local mini mart (Marino Tutto per Tutti who dropped us back with our shopping), how to catch the local and SITA buses and the extra requirements of the property. Maria also gave us details of how to organise a boat trip to Capri through La Boa which we would highly recommend. It was a great day out with Francesco. We were also given the directions on how to order delivery meals from CheBonta which again we highly recommend. We are a family of 8 (2 adults and 6 children). Our advice to future visitors is that the house is better suited to smaller groups. It is advertised to accommodate 11 guests but it is not big enough for that number of people to have a comfortable stay. In particular, the kitchen space was very small; however, given there were several good restaurants at the beach and the delivery meals were delicious, it was manageable. Thank you for the opportunity to stay at Villa Benedetta.”
