Location and Surrounding Area. Villa Don Pietro is snuggled into the cliffside, directly above the main beach at Praiano, which offers an exclusive beach club, excellent restaurants and boat rentals. Praiano lies in the heart of the Amalfi Coastline and has always been a desirable destination of the elite; from the artistic days of the Grand Tour to illustrious visitors such as Escher, Jackie Kennedy and Pablo Neruda. The deep Furore fjord, with its network of steps and secret beach, is a poignant reminder of the days when fishermen would haul up their catch for the villagers.
Among the countless enchanting places to visit in the area, perhaps Ravello, Positano and Amalfi stand out for the first time visitor. Ravello, at 350 metres above sea level, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and offers both unforgettable architecture and scenic beauty. The 11th century Cathedral and Villa Cimbrone are exquisite and a summer music festival is held each in the year in the gardens of the 13th century Villa Rufolo. D.H. Lawrence wrote Lady Chatterley’s Lover here and the town has been frequented over the years by the likes of Greta Garbo and Winston Churchill.
