The original stone wheel and press have been kept fully intact in our grand suite as a tasteful centrepiece. Although every effort to restore it original charm and elegance have been employed, there are all the modern conveniences one would expect in a world class bed and breakfast establishment. High-speed Internet and wireless access are juxtaposed with hand-cut stone floors—modern bathrooms look though ancient portals out to sea and Capri.

Porter services are available. It is advisable to request the extra porter service prior to your arrival. (This service is extra) The village Vettica Maggiore is part of the village of Praiano and is considered the most spectacular vantage point on the entire Amalfi Coast. It is a short distance from the bustling town of Positano, with its many shops, restaurants and galleries, yet it seems a world apart. The famous city of Amalfi is down the coast in the other direction and can be easily reached by car, boat or public transportation. Excursions to the famed isle of Capri (home of the notorious Roman ruler Tiberius) can be arranged by ferry or private boat where one can swim in the waters of the Blue Grotto.

WiFi is available; the service is charged Euro 15 per stay, no matter how many devices and time you are using the service. Yet we need to charge because we use the amount to keep the network efficient! The basic quote stated is for one room. If your party needs more than one room, the price will be multiplied by the number of accommodation needed. We are unable to synchronize the full calendar of all rooms' availability.

We must inform you that each councils on the Amalfi Coast (except Positano and Atrani) has a visitors' tax, that is applicable to each guest that overnights in the area. The tax is due at arrival and paid to the person in charge of your check in. The visitors tax is only paid by each guest that overnights and it is due per night. Guests under the age of 10 years are exempt. Praiano visitor's tax is Euro 1, per night, for initial 7 nights. Euro 0,70 thereafter. The tax can be only paid at departure and in cash. More
