Italian holidays in Positano & Praiano
Villas and Apartments in Positano, Praiano & surroundings
Our guide to the area
On the southern side of the Sorrento Penisular is the popular Amalfi Coast villages of Positano and Praiano.
Positano is the jewel in the crown for Amalfi Coast holidays. With its pretty coloured villas, winding cobbled streets, a quaint little beach and plenty of café's, restaurants and boutiques.
If you are driving from the west, Positano is the first town you will come across. No journey here is dull; seen from the sea, Positano is set in a dramatic vertical panorama of colours with breath-taking cliffs and vivid painted Mediterranean houses against a backdrop of the blue sea.
Positano villas offer panoramic views across the coastline with terraces and swimming pools and plenty of space to relax and soak up the atmosphere. Positano apartments often gorgeous balconies, perfect for having breakfast or afternoon drinks al fresco and are often just a stone's throw from bars, restaurants and shops. Positano villas with private pools are short in supply but high in demand, therefore we recommend booking early to avoid disappointment
Praiano is less famous than its neighbour Positano but has gained a reputation as a fashionable resort whilst still retaining its status as a working fishing village. There is plenty of restaurants, bars and shops, whilst proudly boasting one the best beaches of the entire Amalfi Coast.
