Centrally located in Praiano, a charming former fishing village situated between Amalfi and Positano.
Just a flight of steps from the main coastal road and all necessities of a small town – butchers, fruit & vegetable shops, grocery store, post office, bank, and the local coastal bus stop for Positano, Sorrento and Amalfi. Its secluded location high above the coastline, surrounded by large terraces planted with palm trees and flowers, makes Villa Regina Bianca an exclusive oasis of privacy and peace, offering fantastic views towards Positano and Capri.
The villa is laid out on three floors and the top tower. About 450 feet from the villa, a pathway of steps takes you all the way down to the Praia beach near the Saracen tower of Praiano. The bathing establishment has sun chairs and umbrellas, and a restaurant and bar serves great food.
The entrance has an iron door leading onto a paved patio with potted flowers and trees, overlooking the terraces and the pool area. The patio is furnished with a wicker sofa, 4 iron chairs, a small glass topped table and 2 dining tables with chairs. The patio has 3 French doors leading into the villa’s living room and dining area. The dining room, adorned with Roman amphora, features a large, glass-topped table and fragments of original roman columns with seating for 12. The kitchen is well equipped with refrigerator, freezer with icemaker, 5-range stovetop, oven, microwave, and dishwasher. The entrance foyer with stairs connecting to the upper and lower floors is furnished with antique furniture, a marble table, and grand piano.
