The two apartments have recently been renovated and are situated in the village of Praiano, in a quiet, panoramic position and both apartments have a wonderful view of the sea. You get to them along the road that runs through all of the village and where you can also park your car, then you go up a flight of 30 steps. The furnishings are modern and comfortable, and both are equipped with satellite TV, WIFI internet connection, DVD player and washing-machine, each apartment has its own private, panoramic terrace furnished for dining outside with a view of the sea. There is a small outside swimming-pool (4 x 3m) within the property suitable for children. The nearest beach is at Praia about 700 metres away and can be reached on foot or by public transport with the bus which regularly passes along the main road and which also goes to Positano. The food shops are about 300 metres away. Praia is an enchanting spot, a bay hidden between rocky cliffs with a pebble beach and a footpath carved into the rock face, with excellent restaurants and a wonderful atmosphere. From Praiano you can easily get to the most attractive sights along the Amalfi Coast - Positano and Amalfi are both 6 kms away, Sorrento 23 kms, and Naples 55.

de retour de notre sejour en cote amalfitaine, je vous informe que nous sommes très heureux de ce sejour.
Nous avons été très bien et très chaleureusement accueillis tant à Praiano (Smeraldo) qu'à Sorrento (Villa Auxilia).
Les 2 emplacements sont à la fois différents mais exceptionnels touts les deux.

Nous sommes donc très satisfaits, et nous vous recontacterons certainement pour l'été 2016!

Encore bravo.
ciao et grazie mille.

"Sejour extra. Les photos de votre site sont la réalité du lieu.
Un panorama superbe sur la cote amalfitaine / des fleurs partout ( bougainvillée ) et des citronniers aussi.
Le sejour dans l'appartement du rez de chaussée a été très bien. L'equipement suffisant pour 2
tout était en très bon état, climatisation / literie / douche ...tout ok.
L'accueil du propriétaire est extremement chaleureux. J'insiste! / Il nous a aidé au transport des bagages à cause des 60 marches d'escaliers.... et pareil au départ.
Le parking pour l'auto est parfait. Il faut le prévoir car pas de stationnement légal...
Le site est parfait pour le séjour:
- proche de la plage ( Marina di Praia ) par des escaliers ( +/- 15 minutes à pied seulement ) à l'aller et au retour il faut emprunter les navettes bus locales ( 1.50 € seulement )
- proche du village et des commerces ( 20min à pied )
- 2 restaurant à coté,
- un petit supermarché à 15 minutes à pied.
- proche de Positano ( navettes toutes les 1/2 heures depuis le centre ville 1.50€ le trajet ) .
En résumé, nous avons été enchantés.

"We had a very enjoyable and relaxing stay at Portapenta. The view from the apartment was magnificent and the our hosts very friendly and helpful. The repair work to the devastation caused by the flood damage only caused us very minor inconvenience.
Thank you for your service and efficiency.
Best wishes

"We enjoyed the stay at portapenta very much. The place was in a perfect location with stunning views and the apartment was clean and comfortable. The owners were extremely helpful and friendly.

"Thank you for your email. We had a lovely stay, the property was lovely and the family amazing. They even gave us fresh produce from their garden.
To give you some feedback about the property:
· The location perfect, quiet and spectacular views
· The outside furniture was nice and we wish we had better weather to enjoy it more
I hope this helps, again we would like to say that our hosts were perfect. We own our business and know the importance of feedback.
Kind regards,

"We had a wonderful time at Portapenta. The property was very nice, and was what we had expected from the photographs on the Ville in Italia website. The journey to the property was easy, and the directions provided were clear.

Thank you,

"Hello Alessandra,
I just thought I'd drop you a quick email to let you know we all had a great holiday in Praiano.

The apartment was nice and clean and spacious. The gardens and pool nicely stocked with lemons and grapes (a novelty to us cold weather Brits). And the pwners were very helpful (we even borrowed their dvd player!). The driver's and car for the airport transfers and Pompeii trip were excellent and on time. We had a nice Mercedes and the baby seat was in it each time (something I was a bit worried about). Please pass on our regards to Guiseppe.

For our other days out, we managed to get around on the buses and visited Positano, Capri and Napoli.

Many thanks for all you help in arranging this holiday. It was a 60th birthday present for my wife's parents and seeing Pompeii was one of their dreams.

Best Regards, Darren."

"Hi Alessandra
Our stay at Villa Portapenta was most enjoyable. The hosts Pasquale & Daniela and their other family members were very helpful and it was a pleasure to meet them. The apartment was as described on the web. The setting was beautiful and the location great for accessing Positano & Amalfi. The facilities in the apartment were very adequate.

Our dealings with you were also very positive. Easy and effective communication and payment systems. Good directions to the apartment. I would definitely recommend your company to others.

Thanks for an enjoyable holiday,

"The stay at Portapenta was very good. The apartment was very clean and suited our needs. We used the parking facilities but used bus and boat to get around as we found this a lot easier and more in keeping of the area. We travelled out everyday and returned in the evening to the fabulous views from the terrace.
I would use the accommodation again and would recommend highly. We travelled down from Rome by hired car as we had a week there first.

Kind regards

Ernie and Janice"

"We had a great stay in Italy thank you Clinton!

Well as with the last two years, Villeinitalia delivered brilliantly (even answering questions about hairdryers!!). The apartment was perfect - I loved the fact that we have always stayed in residential areas.

I will definitely be using your company again and I hope to deal with you next year.

Kind regards

"We enjoyed our stay in portapenta/apt.2.
Especially nice was the kindness of the “hostmother”, she gave us lemons, tomatoes and other fruits from her garden as presents.

The Appt. itself was clean and quite nice.
Thank you for your very professional support!

All the best for your future,

(July 2008)

We had a lovely time. The owners were really nice and friendly, fresh lemons and apricots on the trees outside, amazing view, and very peaceful!!! Private balcony under the lemon trees, amazing!!! The apartment was basic, but comfortable, and perfect size for 2.

The local shop is only down the road, and well stocked with fresh produce and a great selection of wines and local specialties, as well as the basics.

Parking was quite close (about 150m from the top of the steps) You need the parking, there is no street parking.

In addition, the local bus was easy to catch and cheap. There is also car & scooter rental in the village, so really not sure if you need a car!!

We drove down from Rome, and the journey was easy, and the instructions easy to follow.

"Hi Alessandra,
It has taken me awhile to respond, but I wanted to let you know we absolutely LOVED Portapenta, Pasquale and his family. He brought us some cake for Rene’s birthday, lettuce from his garden and giant lemons too. The accommodations were lovely and spacious and clean.

We loved the huge terrace with a gorgeous view of the sea and had our meals outside.

The washing machine was great to have. The kitchen was well equipped.

We loved the location. The town was not as busy as some of the others, like Amalfi, which was a good thing.
If you are wondering about anything else, please feel free to ask.
We would highly recommend this place to anyone, including our friends and would not hesitate to stay there again. There are quite a few stairs, and it is on an incline - but everything on the coast is on an incline! So that could be the only hindrance to someone with knee issues or problems with stairs.

Jackie & Rene"
