Overview

About the property

Beautiful Villa, 6 Bedrooms on suit baths, spectacular sea view, swimming pool

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.

About The Owner

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.

The Owner purchased this villa in 1999

Why The Owner chose Campania

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.

What makes this villa unique

We have always been in love with the area of Arienzo, and finding an old property here was a rare luck.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My wife and I and three other couples from Northern Michigan, had the good fortune to select Villa Lighea for our first trip to Positano. We can say without reservation that no description or picture could every do justice to what we would describe as the most wonderful place we have ever stayed.



The Villa is spacious, immaculate, and perfect for a group like ours or for a large family. All five bedrooms were large and comfortable with private baths and wonderful views. And the view is breathtaking!! The grounds and pool are well maintained and the location is perfect. The villa is just a few steps down from the main road and it’s a short walk into Positano. The kitchen has everything you need, there are plenty of wine glasses, and more linens than you need. We wanted for nothing.



But while the Villa itself is magnificent, it is the owners and our concierge who really made this a special trip for us. Roberto and Manuela took care of every request to the smallest detail prior to our arrival. Roberto even had his girlfriend bring a special order beverage on her trip from London when he couldn’t find it in town! Manuela arranged for groceries, snacks, wine, and other beverages choices prior to our arrival exactly as ordered. In addition she set up a fantastic full Italian dinner in the Villa on the night of our arrival. We felt like kings and queens!



Then Erin, our concierge, took over. She set up tours, made reservations for dinner, set up transportation including taxis, and boats, and ordered pizza delivered one rainy evening. We were blown away with the service she provided and her availability AM and PM. The villa’s choice for taxi and tour service (Positano Drivers) was the best! Francesco and Giuseppe (Pepe) kept us informed and entertained all week. On top of all that, Oksana, who had much appreciated coffee snacks for us every morning, was the best. When we left in the morning she came in and waved her magic wand so when we returned the entire villa was all new again!!



In short, this was a vacation of a lifetime. We felt we were with new Italian friends during our stay. This was truly a six+ star experience

Paradise on Amalfi Coast

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 adults and a 6 year old grandson stayed here a week to celebrate my 60th birthday. This was a trip of a lifetime!! This Villa is super comfortable-all rooms air conditioned with individual controls and private bath. Very nice linens and comfortable beds. Well equipped kitchen although we didn't cook. Absolutely breathtaking views from every bedroom, and especially the outdoor patio with dining table upstairs. It's so gorgeous you hardly want to leave, but there is so much to do in the area. The owners were SO helpful booking excursions for us to Capri, Pompeii, and other places....and made dinner suggestions or reservations anytime we asked. They give you a local cell phone which is very helpful, and arranged our pickup at the Naples airport. I can't say enough good about the Villa and our experience with the owner. We have rented homes in various countries and this was by far our best experience.

Villa Lighea is heaven on Earth!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Words can not describe the experience of our family of 9 - 7 months to 83 years old. The Villas 6 bedrooms with ensuite baths were perfect. The main living area affords 2 bedrooms minimizing steps for our elderly family member. Huge Sliding glass doors expand the living area to the balcony making an extraordinarily large and spacious area where all can be comfortable. Manuela & Roberto were both kind and sincere in accommodating our every need. Their customer service was beyond description. Our experience will remembered through the ages and I can highly recommend this Villa and it's owners.

“Pure Magic!”

  • 5 of 5

We are seasoned travelers and have been to Positano many times. This was our first stay at Villa Lighea and I am certain it won't be the last. The bedrooms are so well appointed with comfortable beds and delicious linens...and views from every window that make your heart melt. Our hosts, Manuela and Roberto, made sure we had everything we needed. The staff of the villa anticipated our every desire and we truly fell in love with everyone associated with the villa. It is so amazing to be so far away from home but still feel like you were at home.

I was most impressed with the level of communication from the time we booked the villa, to the gracious welcome on our arrival and a fond farewell at departure. Everywhere I looked, something made me smile--such attention to detail. The villa was immaculate and the gardens and pool area so serene and inviting.

Thank you so much for filling our hearts and minds with such beautiful memories!

Paradise in Paradise

My wife and I went with four other couples and stayed in the Villa Lighea in October of 2013. This was my fourth trip to Positano and my first at this villa. Positano is one of the most beautiful places in the world and staying at the Villa Lighea made it even better. That is why I call it paradise in paradise !

The video on You Tube did not do it justice. No video can show just how great this place is and no video can show you the great service and hospitality we received on this trip.

The villa was very spacious and immaculate. Manuela, Roberto and Oksana met us at the door when we arrived and had a prearranged dinner from a local deli for us along with great local wines. What a way to start our vacation !!!

All of our needs such as trips to the local sightseeing areas , restaurants reservations (with the best seats in the restaurant), where to shop ( best prices ) were provided by Manuela and her staff. I must say the drivers that took us to local areas were extremely helpful and spoke excellent English.

The views from every room is incredible and most of the bedrooms had their own balconies and every room has there own bathroom. Fresh towels were provided every day and everything was perfect. Every morning fresh coffee and pastries were provided to start the day. I also had a chance to have a spa treatment by the pool that was wonderful !

On our last night we had a chef come in and cook a four course dinner for us. It was outstanding and I highly recommend everyone has this service ( just ask Manuela ).

I highly recommend Villa Lighea to everyone. It was very sad the day we left and nobody wanted to leave. I will return again in the near future with my friends.
