Positano: Casa Leucosia... in a wonderful ancient villa,in the heart of Positano

Bedrooms 2
Space 1,022 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


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.

Amazing coastline

  • 5 of 5

Very nice apartment with stunning views all around. Our host Pietro could not have been more gracious and helpful. Do not bring a car because there is no place to park. Everything is close by but will require some challenging walking. All major Amalfi towns are serviced by the efficient ferries. Walk the medium difficulty Path of the Gods. Amazing scenery.

Absolutely Amazing!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is THE PERFECT place to stay in Positano! The villa is even more beautiful than pictured. Large, very clean, well appointed - has everything you could possibly need or desire. Fantastic location - near wonderful cafes, restaurants, main shopping area, events, and even a private passage to the church and beach! All that before I even mention the million $$$$+++ dollar (Euro) view not only of the sea that looks like sparkling jewels but the iconic hillside homes which look like a plen air painting! The home itself is spacious, airy, open and beautiful inside but one of my favorite things was the large balcony for coffee in the morning, reading in the afternoons and romantic dinners prepared from fresh ingredients we found at the markets that day and created in the kitchen while watching the sunset over the sea and the town. Pierpaolo was an incredible host - so gracious and generous providing wonderful recomendations for excellent restauarants, shops and markets - even a driver - Mr. Lupo - to take you to whereever you desired. Casa Leucosia could not have been more perfect! I will dream of this place until I return again!!!

Loved every minute of our stay at Casa Leucosia

  • 5 of 5

We are so lucky to have found this amazing apartment in the most perfect location in Positano. Pierpaolo was a gracious and professional host, and did everything he could to make our stay as comfortable as possible. All the amenities were exactly as described, and the view was well beyond our expectations. We were two couples, and had plenty of room and privacy , and the 2 baths upstairs , and half bath downstairs were very convenient. Unfortunately, we had some rainy days, but the apartment was large and comfortable enough that we were able to cook a meal, relax amd enjoy our time indoors. We were able to spend some time on the beach as well, and the stairs from the apartment were very convenient and time saving .....once our legs got used to the climb. Overall, we would highly recommend Casa Leucosia ,and sincerely thank Pierpaolo for his wonderful hospitality.

A gem in the perfect location.

  • 4 of 5

This two story villa is wonderful. The balcony extends the full width of the place and the view is exquisite. My favorite part is the location. A private staircase takes you down just behind the church and right out to the beach from there. Pierpaolo was fantastic and met us right away upon arrival. The only drawback is the small kitchen, which is the reason for the 4 stars instead of 5. Really only enough room for 1. But with such close access to the absolute best of Positano, who cares! We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful villa. Ciao!
