From a tiny, quiet piazza in the heart of the village, 72 steps lead to Casa Bassine. A small entrance hall leads to a lovely dining area divided by an arch from the spacious living room with an open fireplace, comfortable sofas, and doors that open onto the balcony, with a beautiful view of the promontory of Praiano. Adjacent to the living room is a door leading to the master bedroom, which has an ensuite bathroom with Jacuzzi bath and doors that open onto the balcony. On the opposite side of the hallway is a large, attractive eat-in kitchen (stove, oven, fridge/freezer) with glass doors that open onto a large flower garden furnished for outdoor dining.
