“The real best of the best”
Reviewed 31 October 2011

My boyfriend and I booked our trip to Praiano and chose the Locanda without really knowing much about it. In fact, I picked it as a destination based on its stunning views onto the coast, parking availability (which in the area is quite a perk) and overall look from its website.

First of all, Praiano is strategically located between Positano and Amalfi, making it the perfect location for us as we wanted to travel to both places without spending too much money on accommodation (both can be quite expensive destinations).

Secondly, everyone travelling to the Costiera Amalfitana should know that parking in the area is costly and ranges between 3 and 5 Euro per hour. Most hotels on the coast sign conventions with private parkings charging up to 20 Euro per day. Therefore, it was a nice plus to know that La Locanda offered free parking.

Once there - quite a stunning ride up the hill - we were pleasantly surprised by the beauty of the place. The exterior, garden and bedrooms are very carefully maintained and beautiful in their simplicity.

Our bedroom - Bacco - featured a beautiful garden overlooking the coast. The garden is shared with another bedroom but we barely saw each other during the entire weekend, allowing us to comfortably enjoy our external space.

The best part of our stay was Franco - the owner. An experienced, sublime host able to make you feel at home while offering invaluable hints and suggestions on restaurants, places, must-see and no-goes. He has a great deal of experience and knows virtually everyone in the area and his name was a very good introduction in each and every store or restaurant we dropped it.

La Locanda degli Dei is one of those magical places with the Simply Home Factor which for me is a definitive plus when travelling for pleasure.

We left knowing we will be back and I cannot wait for our next trip in Spring!

Room Tip: Bacco was lovely

Comfortable rooms, great breakfasts, beautiful views. And while it was a fairly long walk/climb from the main road through Praiano, the phenomenally friendly, helpful hosts and staff more than compensated for any minor concerns in that respect. Everyone was very accommodating and went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable.

This B&B was the best place we strayed in Italy during Sept 2011. We stayed here becuase my good friend Greg Curley wote about this in the Huffington Post and recommended it strongly. We were not dissapointed.

The service was professional, friendly and organised all the time. We stayed in the Diana room on the second floor with a small veranda overlooking the ocean and a large jacuzzi in the bathroom. The bathroom is gorgeous and the jacuzzi worked well. We were far from the cleanest guests and drank plenty of wine there. No complaints from the owners, though. Helps alot that there is an friendly young Amercian woman on staff so no language barrier.

The breakfasts were amazing. Fresh homemade croissants, cakes and fantastic cappacino. The staff even went a got a pizza for us one night when we had had too much wine to drive to the local village. Praiano is a beautiful quiet village between Amalfi and touristy Postiano but only 15min drive to each.

You wake up each morning looking at an amazing ocean and have breakfast in the garden surrounded by flowers. Want to go back soon.

My boyfriend and I stayed 3 nights at Locanda Degli Dei recently. The place was very clean and cute and the people who ran the bed and breakfast were really helpful. Jocelyn (I hope I got your name right!) was super helpful especially because she speaks both English and Italian. Franco was gracious with rides when we needed to get to the bus stop and couldn't lug our bags down the stairs in time to make it. Make sure you are physically fit if you plan to visit... lots of stairs! It was a good workout. I think I counted 300-something stairs up to the door of the place from the main road, and it was an adventure trying to figure out which stairs to take (some just ended up at people's front door instead of being a pathway). Lovely views from our patio that we shared with another nice couple. Only downside is that the breakfast offered was all sugar... powdered sugared croissant filled with chocolate sometimes accompanied by another small sugar coated doughnut, fruit flavored yogurt, sugary fruit juice... at least once we crashed after a sugar high and took a nap in the morning. LOL. Other than that, it was PERFETTO on all accounts and I would definitely stay again! P.S. Praiano is much more comfortable and relaxing than more bustling Positano/Amalfi... very recommended location and b&b.

My friend and I decided we needed a trip to Italy and were desperate to stay in Praiano. After searching online we decided on Locanda deli Dei (mostly from the photo's of the tiled bathrooms and sea views). Before we even set off we had received lovely, warm responses to our questions (we couldn't hire a car and caught buses from Naples Airport) it help ease our concerns.

We arrived really late and got picked up by the wonderful Franco and with very little fuss we were show to our beautiful room and left to sleep. In the morning we were late for breakfast but it was no trouble for the lovely staff to bring it up to our terrace. Who wouldn't love cake for breakfast! The room was immaculate, very clean, great shower, light and airy with an uninterrupted view of the sea.

As we couldn't hire a car or dare to go on a scooter we did walk to and from Locanda deli Dei often. It is a hike and weaves around the mountainside in a crazy mannor but in the early evening the view is breathtaking. We also walked into a cloud late one evening and you don't get to do that everyday! Franko and Gianni were happy to drop us off at the bus stop or the beach which was really sweet of them.

There are two bus routes which are easy to navigate (you do need to buy tickets for the SITA bus in advance from the newsagents). All bus routes from Naples Airport and the SITA from Sorrento are available online so you can plan in advance.

I have travelled quite a lot and there aren't many views that can beat the view we had in the Venus room. Opening the shutters every morning and seeing nothing but the sea did not fail to amaze me every morning. I couldn't thank all the staff at Locanda deli Dei more, we were very emotional when we had to say goodbye.

Room Tip: There are only a few room available so do request your favourite from the photo's. We stayed in...
