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!
