How did you enjoy your ISV experience; actual accommodations, amenities and services
Really phenomenal trip and the house was a big part of that. Clean and beautiful with a great Italian feel, the house had just amazing views from every porch, and there are many! Italian Style Villas arranges chef to come in, and a private boat for a day and both were awesome. Could not be happier with how the trip went......really our family of 7 was blown away. Owner Gianluigi was a great host and always available to help. Highly recommend for families with older children and friends. The area has MANY steps and hills to get to town and around coast so elderly and disabled be warned. Also do not plan to rent a car and drive yourself as the driving is very narrow and winds along the coast. Hire driver or take bus and enjoy view and not worry.

“In the Heart of the Amalfi Coast”
“Wow…What a beautiful, bright, perfectly decorated Praiano villa in the heart of the Amalfi Coast. From the moment we opened the door, we were transported to an Italian paradise, so wonderfully appointed and spacious! The amenities are limitless. From the large kitchen to the washer and dryer, fridge and freezer, panini maker, coffee maker, sauna, massage room, pizza oven and barbecue on the terrace abutting the fabulous pool…And then there is Luigi, the owner/host/manager, who is available, but behind the scenes and very humble. The location is just perfect, steps (very many) to town and the SITA bus to take us to Amalfi to the South and Positano to the North. All so accessible. The living space and bedrooms are quite large and the multiple terraces allow for all the fantastic views of Positano, Li Galli and the iconic Faraglioni rocks of Capri in the distance. Markets are available for delivery, cafes at the street level and restaurants all within walking distance. We cannot wait to return!!!”
