Casa Privata

Via Rezzola 41
84010 Praiano (SA)

We have lovingly restored an old and stony fisherman’s ruin and its surrounding area of enchanting gardens, with a vision to create an exquisite and private retreat – Casa Privata.`

Ca’ P’a is situated in Praiano, a little town between Amalfi and Positano, on one of the most beautiful coasts in the world – the Amalfi Coast. Set within this inspiring vantage point of surrounding valleys, the extensive grounds at Ca’ P’a include tranquil lawns, organic fruit and vegetable garden while enjoying a fabulous view of the Mediterranean sea.

The Seaside

Our completely private seafront, which is exclusively for our guests, can be accessed by a series of steps at the bottom of our garden. We have created several platforms with sun lounges, parasols, tables and chairs as well as a fresh water shower for your utmost comfort and privacy.

Idle your day away lounging in the sun, plunging into the sea and grazing on one of our delicious lunch hampers, all set to the dreamy soundtrack of the Mediterranean gently kissing the rocky coast.

The Garden

The opportunity to spend the entire day outside is one of the great advantages of life by the sea. In this more than 5000 square meter space you can enjoy the great coastal panorama while wandering around sculpted hedges, enjoying local and exotic plants and flowers. It is yours to explore and see where your senses take you.

Herbs, spices, fruit and vegetables from our working estate are used in our recipes and remedies – cultivated on the day, every day, for ultimate freshness. Most of the ingredients our kitchen uses are the fruits of our good position and climate, grown organically in our own gardens.

The Pool


As we sailed along the coast in 1995, we discovered this old ruin. The physiognomy of the construction was fascinating as it stood isolated amidst a wide-open space, slightly sloped towards the sea. The land around the ruin was unique for the area and flowed into a rocky coastline, which appeared to be less steep and rough than the land preceding or following it. Retaining something of the original impression of the place became quite a challenge. At first, we envisioned it as being a holiday home, but once all the rooms had been laid out with their own bathrooms, we realized we could not keep the place all to ourselves. So we set out to make it accessible to our friends.


Ca’ P’a is situated in Praiano, a little village between Amalfi and Positano, on one of the most beautiful coasts in the world – the Amalfi Coast. The dramatic nature of the coastline demands that guests descend 120 steps to get to the property. Once you have arrived at Ca’ P’a you will experience what Casa Privata stands for – cultivated privacy – a place where you will be left alone but still feel well-cared for while enjoying the most beautiful views of the Amalfi Coast, either from your room or from the garden.

As a reminder: Ca’ P’a is this slightly weathered block you could already see peaking through the scattered houses on the steep slopes when coming from Sorrento. The eye first hits the dense canyon of houses of Positano, then glides over the loose cluster that is Praiano. This is exactly where you will find Ca’ P’a – given that you know the Amalfitana already. After asking your way through the village and climbing 127 tall and worn-out, slippery steps you will reach the nondescript wooden gate and with it …paradise... Read more
