Property description

Villa Lighea Art Boutique

The Villa faces the sea from the High Ground just as Lighea, the Siren, who overlooked the deep blue of the Mediterranean up to the horizon, to safeguard sailors.

Villa Lighea is situated in one of the most beautiful and fashionable areas of Positano, the little village of the Amalfi coast famous for its uniqueness and beauty. As John Steinbeck once put it: “Positano bites deep. It is a dream place that isn’t quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you are gone.”

The Vila is a characteristic Positano building where the influence of Byzantine architecture has been perfectly merged with the skillful hands of contemporary local masters. It features arches, vaults and niches that stand out on the pastel sky-blue majolica tiles.

The view is simply breathtaking – with the entire bay of Positano opening to your eyes. All bedrooms and terraces overlook the Mediterranean, the famous Li Galli (Sirens’ island) is in front of you and Positano itself is on your right.

The Villa has two floors, surrounded by beautiful terraces and gardens.

The living room is spacious with a panoramic veranda terrace, overlooking the sea. It is furnished with cozy sofas, a large dinner table for the perfect lively dinners together. There is also a large flat screen satellite TV, as well as audio / DVD equipment and wireless Internet (wireless can be used anywhere in the residence, gardens and swimming pool area).

The kitchen is adjacent to the living room is of professional quality and is equipped accordingly. You can enjoy cooking your own meals or hire a professional chef for an entire day or a special event.

The villa itself has 5 bedrooms (either double or twin), and there is a sixth bedroom (apartment) right next to the villa in the same residence, which is available. All bedrooms have sea view, are furnished in Mediterranean style, have on suit bathrooms, and a small balcony. Each has air cons, safe keeping facilities, hair dryers, mosquito nets, WiFi connection.

We decided not to put TVs in the bedrooms- the view is simply too beautiful to be “contested” by other images. Listen to the sound of the waves and your favorite music if you choose to use the iPod docks provided in all the bedrooms.

In the outside area you will be able to enjoy the sun in the beautiful garden solarium, a refreshing dip in the swimming pool or relax in a Jacuzzi bath.

The closest beach is Arienzo, which is only a few minutes walk down the stairs. There you will find a lovely family run restaurant to enjoy a freshly cooked traditional lunch, rent a sun bed or take a water taxi to the main Positano beach.
The center of Positano is just one kilometer away from the villa and can be comfortably reached by public transport (bus stop opposite to the villa), taxi or by taking a pleasant picturesque stroll (about 20 minutes).

On your arrival you will be greeted by Manuela, Katya and Roberto, who are there to help you to make you stay in Positano truly memorable. It will be our pleasure to suggest you (as well as help to arrange, book, etc) interesting excursions, best restaurants and all that our area can offer.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1999

About: We are sister and brother, Manuela and Roberto, and lived in Positano for most of our lives. We are the second generation of owners of the village pharmacy and wanted to find a different (from the pharmacy) project to do together. Around ten years ago, we had a possibility to acquire an old property on our beloved coast, very close to our parents’ house. We enjoyed bringing the property to its new glory immensely, it was fun to work with the local architect, craftsmen and artists and to transform the property into a magnificent villa which we hope many visitors will enjoy.

Why Positano:
The Villa Lighea is located on a hill of our childhood, close to our parents place and has, what we truly believe is one of the best views on the Amalfi coast. Dreamy Li Galli island and entire Positano bay is right in front of you always amazing but never the same.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
We have always been in love with the area of Arienzo, and finding an old property here was a rare luck.
