The Amalfi Coast is one of Italy’s top destinations and it is a firm favourite with Flavours’ guests. Stretching about 50 km along the southern side of the Sorrentine Peninsula, the Amalfi Coast has the most breathtaking scenery and views to die for. A meandering coastal road is flanked with lemon groves and whitewashed villas to one side and sheer cliffs that drop down to a dazzling blue sea on the other. This region of Italy is known for its fresh ingredients, tasty seafood and of course, pizza.
The people were great – Francesca and Davida were wonderful and the food was very interesting. The location of the villa was beautiful and the Capri visit was amazing!

Where you’re going to stay
Towering above the sea at the edge of a cliff, villa Praiano dominates a commanding position on the Amalfi Coast. The villa points out over the sea like the prow of a ship, with a beautiful view of the plunging cliffs along the coast. Set into the limestone cliffs, our villa does have a moderate amount of steps. The terrace below the villa provides a beautiful view out over the sea, perfect for an aperitivo before dinner. There is a private sea-water swimming pool with steps down to the sea.
