Information about the villa

What do you think about staying in the most sheltered and discrete home in the most photographed and spectacular fishing village on the Amalfi Coast?

Villa Michelina is a charming retreat owned by one of the oldest and well-known families in the town of Praiano and they have been associated with the history and development of the town for many years.

The home and several other famous spots in the town belong to the proprietors who know just about all there is to know about welcoming tourists and providing them with a residence full of charm and comfort.

Not by chance the owners of Villa Michelina are stars in our guest books with fans from Russia to Australia who praise their kindness and the marvelous buffet that they provide for their lucky guests on departure.

The villa needs nothing to make it sought after and appreciated by the many tourists who visit it and the estate agents wanting to promote it.

It is difficult to imagine a more charming and at the same time comfortable and attractive location than that of Villa Michelina.

It is located in the very centre of the little fishing village called ‘La Praia', a few steps from the famous beach of the same name.

It can be reached directly from the state road SS 163, has a reserved private parking spot, and is surrounded by, yet not invaded by, bathing establishments and some of the best open air restaurants and bars on the entire Amalfi Coast.

The house plays an important part in one of the most picturesque and beautiful panoramas on the Amalfi Coast and is in a strategic position for the vacationer who wants to hone up on his ‘ do nothing skills' as well as those who want easy access to windsurfing, fishing, waterskiing, and boat connections to the islands and the entire Coast.

The bus that connects to Amalfi, Positano, Sorrento, and Salerno is a short walk from the door. The interior of the villa lacks absolutely nothing.

There is a beautiful little swimming pool, lovely gardens, a great barbecue area and the home boasts every creature comfort.

It is a fascinating piece of architecture in an enchanting environment and needs no make-up to further enhance its beauty.

Our stay at Villa Michelina was absolutely delightful! The entire Family (Michelina, Roberto, sons and Fay) are the epitome of the sunny and beautiful Amalfi Coast. The villa itself is very spacious and fully equipped with beatifully decorated kitchen and two patios (one for breakfast and another for lunch/diner) tastefully arranged with plants and flowers. Local restaurants offer excellent seafood... All is all, very memorable and pleasant vacation to remembered for many years...

1-8 October 2011: Villa Michelina was not our first choice of staying at the Amalfi Coast. Luckily, the villa we booked first got damaged and so we had the opportunity to stay at Villa Michelina. From now on, it will be our ONLY choice when going to the Amalfi Coast again. 1) Michelina is a very warm host and welcomed us with selfmade cake and a bottle of selfmade Limoncello when we arrived. 2) There is no supermarkt in Marina di Praia, but Michelina\'s son gave us a (free!) lift everytime we needed to go shopping. 3) Praiano is the perfect location if you stay at the Amalfi Coast: a) everything is bit more relaxed than in the more busy towns of Positano and Amalfi and also a bit cheaper. b) Praiano lies between Amalfi and Positano so you can reach both cities easily. 4) The Villa lies directly at the beach - where else do you have that at the Amalfi Coast? 5) The Villa itself is in a perfect condition! The decoration is very personal (local ceramics, family portraits). A small minus: the advertised pizza oven in the garden could not be used during our stay. That was something we were really looking forward to do. All in all a highly recommendable Villa!

Il va sans dire que notre séjour a la Villa Michelina fut des plus memorable. Merci d\'abord pour la serviabilité et la gentillesse. L\'acceuil de nos hotes, des notre arrivée fut si chaleureuse que l\'on se sent chez soi. Nous rentrons chez nous la tète remplie d\'images fabuleuse, des paysages a couper le souffle, frissons guarantis. Merci pour tout les services rendus. Tout içi dépasse nos espérances. Que la vie soit aussi généreuse avec vous que vous l\'avez été avec nous. Nous rentrons chez nous au Canada avec la ferme coviction que le paradis existe, nous l\'avons trouvé, il est içi. ..Et nous esperons y revenir.....
