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.

“Loved our stay. The place was breathtaking and waking up to the view was a dream come true. The kids loved the place and Maria was extremely helpful and always available. Hope to return soon. Grazie”
“Fabulous location with amazing views. If you can handle the 60 plus steps to the villa you will love Villa Benedetta. Kitchen is small but functional. Bedrooms are comfortable. We spent most of our time on the decks. Praiano is well located for visits to Amalfi, Revello and Positano but is much less overrun by tourists. The small beach below the villa is charming.”
The best part about the villa is the amazing views! The location is secluded and romantic. I love how the local businesses will pick you up. Towels are starch, no paper towels, no napkins. The tile was gorgeous. The place itself was no frills but again the location was just amazing. It was a pleasure to meet Maria and hear here recommendations. She was easy to communicate with. Thanks Maria!
“Maria is great! Excellent place! A dream come true! Enjoyed every moment of our stay! Definitely coming back!”
This villa is simply wonderful. Beautiful inside with amazing views. We watched storms over the both evenings. Just wonderful. It is in an ideal location near the bus stop and the beach and restaurants of Marina de Praia. But far from the crazy crowds of Positano. Maria is a lovely host who went out of her way to make sure we had all the information we needed about local shops, restaurants and transport options.”
