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 absolutely loved our stay at Villa Benedetta and our host Maria. Maria was there when we arrived and walked us through the house and gave us the details on restaurants and transportation in Praiano and to Positano. Now about the Villa...wow! It was better than what we had prepared for based on the pictures. It was on the hill alone and just a short 5 minute walk to the beach and restaurants. The place had amazing views, was clean, and spacious. We highly recommend people stay here and book with Maria. ”
This villa is a fantastic way to see the Amalfi Coast! The villa truly is directly over the sea, and was a perfect setting for our group of 7. There are many stairs, here and everywhere on the Amalfi Coast, but the walk is worthwhile. Sunrise and sunset are all around you, and the moon is a delight. Be sure to charter a boat from La Boa Charter, in the beach area below the villa---ask for the Captain John--he is very good at what he does. We enjoyed dinner in the beach area below at Armandino restaurant.
“Villa Benedetta is in a stunning location and the descriptions of views and several places to sit and soak it all in are understated. Don't let the steps keep you away because most of the best places on the coast will have steps and these are worth it. My 87 year old mother managed them just fine (but she is in great shape). If you never left the Villa you would have an incredible experience of the Amalfi coast. Maria made sure we understood the restaurants and grocery that delivers or picks up and takes you to their location. Praiano is the most charming town with great restaurants, bars and water taxi access to other coastal destinations. I would go back in a heartbeat and recommend it highly!”
“Loved our stay - will be booking again next year!”
“Place is perfectly located for a stay in Praiano. Amazing views and perfect amenities at the house. Maria was super helpful and everything was as advertised. I will be back..!!!!!”
