“Lovely apartment for up to four”
Reviewed August 3, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The photos are a good representation of the apartment. The balcony has stunning views of the coast, three sun loungers and a table with sun-shade. The main room and the master bedroom have modern, quiet air conditioners, which we appreciated in the middle of August in a heat wave; at other times you could probably sleep comfortably without.

The whole apartment was spotlessly clean when we arrived (the directions were good, and the advice about not bring too much luggage is well made), and is beautifully decorated. The second bedroom (not shown in the photos) is a good size with a large double bed, but does not have any external windows (it has a connecting skylight to the master bedroom) - our daughter was very pleased with it, and it would also suit a second couple. The kitchen area is well equipped and we did a mixture of cooking in the flat and eating out - there's plenty of places to eat locally, the best meal we had was at the closest restaurant, just up and along from the flat (La Moressa), although Kasai is also very good.

Pasquale (lives in the next door apartment) was a very gracious host and was happy to suggest places to go, places to eat, how to get around etc. We had a car and did a fair amount of driving (including visiting both Pompeii and Herculaneum, at about 1.5 hours drive away), although driving along the coast is not for the faint-hearted. You can also manage with the SITA/local bus service along the coast, and there are boats and water taxis which we didn't try (our daughter doesn't like boats). The buses were very busy when we were there, so you have to be patient. Both Amalfi and Positano are a short bus trip away, and you can stay in the relative tranquility of Praiano.

There are two pebbly beaches in Praiano - the closest in Marina is more or less straight down, it's an amazing location, squeezed in between the cliffs, but mostly taken up with sun loungers (fully booked ahead of time in high season). You can sit on the far size next to the boats for free, and it's in shade until lunch time. The other (less busy) beach is round the headland on which the village is built towards Positano and down a similar number of steps, and at first is less appealing - all the sun-loungers are on a concrete pier, but this leaves the beach round the corner free, and again it has shade until after lunch. This beach has a much bigger swimming area and the snorkelling was better.

Overall a great apartment, a nice peaceful location (for Amalfi coast at high season) and a great holiday - thanks Pasquale.

“Wonderful location”
Reviewed July 12, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Praiano, like the entire Amalfi coast, is a truly stunning location, with the added bonus of being quieter than nearby Positano and with a genuine local, friendly feel. Just be aware that you won't be able to get anywhere in this area without going up and down a LOT of steps. Casa San Tomasso makes the most of the spectacular scenery with a sun balcony taking in breathtaking views over the sea and along the coast. And if it's views you're after, check out the en-suite bathroom! The bathrooms in particular are very well appointed and the whole apartment was fresh and spotlessly clean - you can tell when owners really value your custom. There is so much to do in this part of Italy that you will be out and about most days but there will be some when you will want nothing more than just to stay "at home", relax with a drink on the balcony and soak in one of the most spectacular coastal views you are ever likely to have.

“Stunning location, amazing value”
Reviewed July 4, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We had an absolutely delightful holiday in Praiano staying at the wonderful Casa San Tommaso 2

The apartment is exceptionally clean. The balcony is very big, with two sun loungers and a large dining table. The view from the balcony is incredible. You get the same view from the window in the bathroom too!
The apartment has everything you need - the kitchen is well equipped, the bathrooms are clean and attractive.
The apartment is located about ten minutes walk from the Main Street in Praiano but there are restaurants that are closer. For example, La Moressa which has a beautiful terrace and Kasai Kasai is quite close. The local supermarket has everything you need including a large wine cellar!

The beach is about 15 minutes walk away down lots of steps...fine on the way down but tiring on the way back up! This is a small price to pay for staying in a lovely location however. The nearby beach also has great restaurants.

Overall a wonderful stay in a fantastic apartment.

“Lovely stay in gorgeous Praiano”
Reviewed May 27, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We had a fabulous stay with our 10-month-old daughter in this beautiful apartment in sleepy Praiano. Apartment is superbly kept, with all the kitchen equipment you could hope for. Add to that a private balcony with gorgeous views of the sea, a short walk down to the bay, and you have the perfect base to explore the Amalfi Coast.

The owner was very kind and even helped us sort out an issue we had with one of our travel providers. Thank you!

Spotlessly clean and well equipped - very comfortable bed. Be aware there are a lot of steps to the apartment - we counted more than 80. There is also a mandatory final cleaning cost and additional charge for gas and electricity which are not included in the daily rate shown on Trip Advisor.

“A home from home in a beautiful location”

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely apartment located high up in the hills with superb views overlooking the sea. The apartment was well appointed and comfortable with a well equipped kitchen area, very pleasant dining and lounge area, excellent main bedroom and a lovely, bright bathroom. There was also a good-sized second bedroom and an additional bathroom. We enjoyed relaxing on the balcony which had lovely views. The owners of the property, Pasquale and Giovanna, a very warm and genial couple who were present in their adjacent property during our stay, were very helpful and welcoming and made us feel very much at home. Nothing was too much trouble for them in helping to make our holiday a truly memorable one.
The apartment was well located, being just a 15 to 20 minute walk from a delightful cove (Marina di Praia) that was good for bathing. Also, it was only a 5 to 10 minute walk (downhill) to the bus stop where we caught Sita buses going along the main Amalfi coastal road. We found Praiano to be a delightful locality, quieter and a lot less touristy than Amalfi or Positano. A local community bus proved really useful, providing regular and easy access to both the lower and upper parts of Praiano, the town centre and the surrounding area.
All in all, we very much enjoyed our stay at this apartment and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone else seeking holiday accommodation in this area. Please note, however, that it would not be suitable for anyone with a mobility problem due to the many steep flights of steps in this location.

“Most amazing peaceful place”

This is my second visit to Casa San Tommaso. My first trip I stayed in the studio, this time in the two bedroom. I absolutely love these apartments and the location. Praino is a smaller community with a peaceful village feel. You get an authentic experience and the other touristy spots (Amalfi, Positano etc) are easily accessible by bus. The apartment(s) have spectacular views and you will not be disappointed! We always get a private pick up from Naples train station to the apartment as the driver knows exactly where to go and cuts out the hassle of language difficulties at the beginning of your holiday.
