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.

As with the other reviews, this was a lovely and comfortable home away from home with two rooms with double beds, a room with twin beds and a single room (suitable for a child). We had no difficulty with meeting the host either on arrival or departure and every recommendation she gave us was spot on - right down to calling the supermarket for transport to pick up groceries and pizza delivery! We cooked two nights as you could not beat the view from the balcony, including dolphin watching one evening. You can get to Amalfi, Ravello, Capri and Positano with ease, either by water taxi, bus or taxi. It is also the perfect spot to tackle the Path of the Gods walk, approx. 3.5 hrs from the Villa to Nocelle. Try to pack light as the stairs up to the villa will require some effort, but the view is worth it.
The house was everything we imagined and more! In a dreamy location – a true paradise. Maria, our host was friendly and extremely helpful. It was a magical experience. Thank you and we hope to be back soon.
The house was amazing and had an absolutely spectacular view! It really does look like the photos and it was probably one of the best views we had the whole trip. We had all the information we needed from maria and checking in and out was easy.
Villa Benedetta was better than I could have imagined! Maria was so helpful with finding the villa and explaining the ins and outs of Praiano! You can not go wrong with this Villa, it was absolutely beautiful and had everything you might need!
Amazing location! Maria was helpful in guiding us to great local restaurants and bus service. Easy to get around, or not get around as Praia was a delightful little town. Photos cannot describe the beauty!
