About the property

Villa Parthenope, a 17th-century villa, has been recently renovated with care and tastefully decorated. It perches in a peaceful and quiet spot, yet is centrally located in Positano. Hospitality is offered in a pleasant apartment, Casa Leucosia, on the ground floor down about 30 steps from the road.

The apartment is independent and allows privacy. One of the great advantages of the villa is that a car is not required. The apartment is located a 5-minute walk uphill from the celebrated chic boutiques, restaurants and bars of Positano. Fifteen minutes walk downhill takes the visitor to the main beach.

Casa Leucosia (sleeps 4) has an entrance leading into the large living/dining room, which is furnished in a charming style with white-washed walls, terra cotta tiled floors, wooden table and chairs, comfortable sofa, air conditioning, WiFi, TV LCD and 2 French windows opening onto the balcony, which runs the length of the apartment and faces a truly picture-perfect view of the sea and Positano. The kitchen is cheerful, compact and efficient, with refrigerator, stove with 3 gas burners, oven and microwave oven. There is a separate powder room with washing machine. The upper level (10 steps) has 2 double bedrooms with vaulted ceilings, each with en suite bathroom (both with shower).

Another great advantage of Casa Leucosia: private stairs which, through the garden, lead directly to the beach in less than 5 minutes.

A Gem!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed staying at this beautiful apartment in Positano. The pictures do not do it justice. Perfect location and within walking distance of everything you could possibly want in Positano. Fabulous views and cool private stairs to beach. I don't think we could have picked anything better for our stay on the Amalfi Coast.

Perfect apartment, perfect location, perfect host

  • 5 of 5

My two friends and I stayed at Casa Leucosia in April 2017. The apartment was immaculately clean (a very important factor for me) and very charming. And the patio...perfection! It runs the entire length of the apartment with a gorgeous view of both the sea and the Positano hillside. The apartment is in the heart of Positano right next to the most expensive hotel in town, with a private staircase down to the beach, and close to all the restaurants, bars, and shops. Beyond the apartment, Pierpaolo was a fantastic host. I had numerous questions for him before our trip, and he always responded. My friends were arriving before I was, and Pierpaolo was also kind enough to communicate directly with them to arrange for them to meet his colleague, Mr. Vincenzo, to let him into the apartment as Pierpaolo was out of town. Pierpaolo also arranged a private transfer for me with Mr. Lupo from the Naples airport as I arrived a day later (side note...Mr. Lupo was a very entertaining guy and I would highly recommend him for a transfer or a tour). Going above and beyond, one night we returned to the apartment, and the key broke in the lock. We were nervous to call Pierpaolo, but he was very kind and understanding. He quickly arranged for Mr. Vincenzo to come all the way from Sorrento to let us into the apartment. We were very grateful to Pierpaolo and Mr. Vincenzo for their understanding and quick response to our problem. To summarize, I cannot recommend Casa Leucosia enough...a superb apartment in a phenomenal location managed by a fantastic host.

Amazing apartment in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough good things about this apartment. It was extremely comfortable, beautifully decorated, in a perfect location and was very very clean! It is beautifully presented and has absolutely everything you could want for a comfortable stay. The owner Pierpaolo was very helpful and a real pleasure to communicate with throughout the booking process and our stay. We would defintely stay here again and highly recommend it to others.

Beautiful apartment in fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

I struggled in selecting a villa for our stay in Positano as there were so many reviews that said being high on the hill was preferred for the views, and an equal number that said lower was better to minimize the steps to town and the beach. In the end, Villa Leucosia was the perfect choice for being just right --- with the added value of having everything you could need for a wonderful stay in Positano. The views were terrific, and the ease of getting to town and the beach were ideal. The local bus is very close to take you further up the hill to Nocelle and other areas. While the galley kitchen was small, it was well equipped and easily handled the preparation of meals. The beds were comfortable, and the bathrooms more than adequate. And the time spent on the open porch was wonderful, with the sights and sounds of the village a wonderful part of the ambiance, and never distracting. The weather in early April was stunning --- the wisteria in bloom, and we only needed a sweater in the evenings. Thank you for a wonderful visit! We highly recommend this property and would return again without question. We miss Positano already!

Our host was always prompt to respond & greeted us at arrival, giving a run down on the Villa & suggestions for eateries, supermarket. Very kind. The view over Positano was spectacular and the villa was lovely and clean and charming.
