Where do you want to go?
Praiano is a small fishing village made up of houses scattered along the ridge of Monte S. Angelo, which ends in the intense blue sea, at Capo Sottile. In an inlet is Marina di Praia, a small and charming beach surrounded by houses and boats of fishermen and by small, unpretentious restaurants that attract visitors with their simple, yet delicious, local fare. Praiano is considered Positano's little sister with a similar beach and church, but lacking the flood of tourists that inundate Positano every summer. A climb up or down the main coastal road leads to a natural village with incredible views, undisturbed by the rumble of coaches and cars. Lemon groves and vineyard terraces follow the irregularity of the terrain that slopes gently down to the little coves where the ancient Saracen towers stand guarding against improbable enemies. The favorable climate, the pure air, the beautifully blue sea, the cordiality of the people and improving tourist facilities are just few of the reasons that make Praiano an increasingly desirable place to spend one's holiday.
Set in one of the most beautiful panoramic areas of Praiano, Villa Indigo occupies the entire ground floor of a two-story building. It has two beautiful and large private gardens with both offering a wide horizon of sky, sea and coast. The blue Mediterranean sea is just below the property; the water can be reached by walking along a communal staircase of about 140 steps which leads to a sunbathing terrace on cliff. The house is bright, spacious and comfortable, with high ceiling vaults and elegant and welcoming furnishings highlighted with accents of blue. The floors are tiled with shimmering Majolica tiles.
A car is not necessary for a stay at Villa Indigo. The stop for the buses that go to Positano, Sorrento, Amalfi or to the other coastal towns, can be found within 400 meters from the house.
The villa consists of 110 sq. meters of living space and 400 sq. meters of outdoor space. The property offers terraces and gardens with magnificent views of the sea, of Praiano and the coast of Amalfi towards Positano and Capri. The first terrace is located at the entrance of the property. It is partly shaded by a pergola with a bamboo roof. The terrace is equipped with a comfortable seating area with built-in stone white benches, armchairs and sofa around a low coffee table, dining table with chairs, a barbecue, and numerous pots of trees and flowers. The second terrace, situated nine steps below the main terrace is equipped with a pool, a sun umbrella, a table, deck chairs and an external shower. Part of the garden is planted with seasonal vegetables and, if in season, the produce is available to guests.
From the garden, you enter directly into a spacious L-shaped sitting/dining room. The furnishings include two sofas, a large flat-screen Satellite TV, a dining table seating up to six guests, and air conditioning/heating units. The kitchen is spacious, comfortable, and well-equipped (six-burner gas cooker, electric oven, fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher, Italian-style coffee maker, and other small appliances). There is a table to seat four guests. From the kitchen a French door leads out onto the terrace. From one side of the living room, a small corridor leads to two bedrooms, each with direct access onto the garden through French doors. The two bedrooms have their own bathroom next door.
There is a mandatory cleaning fee (100 euro payable locally). Included is a mid-week change of towels and end-of-week cleaning with change of linens and towels.

The Villa is situated below the main street of Praiano, the road that links all of the Amalfi Coast villages. It is reached by walking along a pedestrian street of about 400 meters and includes approximately 160 stairway steps. A short distance from the villa is a well-stocked little supermarket. Coffee bars with Internet access, tourist information center, restaurants, post office, shopping streets, etc. are at approximately 400 meters from the villa. The pebble beach at La Praia, at the bottom of two tall rocky walls, is home to several restaurants offering excellent local cuisine, boat hire service, and a scuba diving school.
If visitors do not have an issue with climbing steps, another place to go is a beach called 'Gavitella', a charming small beach, located at the bottom of a small and verdant rocky inlet. The beach offers a restaurant with beach facilities, which is open during the summer season. The beach of La Gavitella can be reached either on foot, walking along a path that includes about 350 steps, or by sea. During the summer season a ferry service with small boats operates to this beach both from the beach of the Praia and from the beach of Positano. The service is complimentary for customers of the facilities or of the restaurant at the Gavitella.
