We rented a car and drove from Napoli to Praiano. We passed through Sorrento and Positano to reach Praiano and therefore loved this little village even more. It's the perfect place to stay at the Amalfi Coast since it is near enough to the other famous coast towns, but not in the midst of the tourist madness.
My first impression of Hotel Le Fiorere was one of apprehension. The room was big and there was a parking spot for our car but it did not at first look like a place I would fall in love with. But I did. And this was because of the people who ran this establishment. Luigi, his mamma and sister, Enzo and Giovanni were always there, always friendly, and never short or brusque no matter how silly the questions. Unlike some other places in Europe.
Apart from that, what did I like most? The room with the balcony, the fabulous terrace with a spectacular sunset, the terrace barbecue (a British chef who tossed up really good steaks and burgers), the perfect recommendations for local restaurants, a nice hot breakfast, and yummy capuccinos.
We would drive around the Amalfi Coast all day and end up at the terrace each day for the sunset cocktails, even if we went elsewhere for dinner after. On the last evening, we met some great people who were also staying at the hotel, and after drinks we asked Luigi if we could have some of the great Limoncello we had bought from Positano. The staff chilled it for us and got us shot glasses to have it the correct way :-).
We absolutely loved our stay here and this is where we will come back next time, because at the end of the day...it's the people that make the journey.
