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 Ligea, 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 Ligea (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, and oven. There is a separate powder room with washing machine. The upper level (4 steps) has 2 double bedrooms with vaulted ceilings, each with en suite bathroom (one with shower). Another great advantage of Casa Leucosia: private stairs which, through the garden, lead directly to the beach in less than 5 minutes.

PierPaulo was an exceptionally kind and helpful host, making many suggestions and reservations for us, especially considering his wife was expecting their child any minute! One particularly helpful thing he did was to give us contact information for his driver, Luigi Capodelupo (Lupo- the wolf), who was also very helpful with suggestions and reservations for restaurants, tours, and luggage help which really made a huge difference. Also he is quite a character! One of the really special things about Case Ligea is the private staircase down to the port- the location is high enough that the view is spectacular, but not so many stairs that you dread going down to the beach. Be prepared, though, because there are stairs. You can't go wrong with any of the coffee places, ceramics places, beach clubs and restaurants, and be sure to book Lupo to take you to Ravello and Pompeii!
Fresh, Clean, Airy, With Fabulous View
Stayed four days in mid-April. Pierpaolo is a charming and personable host. The apartment is fresh, clean, and airy -- close to everything, with a fabulous view. Note that Pierpaolo also runs a second apartment next door (Casa Leucosia), and the view from that balcony might be even better, though not by much.
Beautiful view, apartment is lovely, location perfect.
Could not have been happier with the apartment, very clean, great location, and the perfect host Pietro.
Beautiful spot in Positano
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Casa Ligea. The apartment was exactly as advertised, with very comfortable accommodations and a beautiful view from the balcony. Pierpaolo was very helpful and a gracious host. He responded to our email questions and met us when we arrived, showing us around the apartment and giving us suggestions for our stay. He arranged for his driver, Mr. Lupo, to meet us at the Naples Airport. We highly recommend this apartment.
I Love Casa Ligea
Casa Ligea is lovely with plenty of room and a beautiful view. This was my second stay at Casa Ligea and it is close to everything in Positano so no car is needed. The apartment is always clean and stocked with all the items needed for cooking. The outside patio is large with lounge chairs and a table with chairs as well. The patio overlooks the city and the Mediterranean. There is a private staircase to the beach so there is no need to walk among the crowd of shoppers. I will be going back again!!

Ferries and hydrofoils fly daily between Positano and Capri (50 min.), Naples (50 min.), Amalfi (30 min.) and Salerno (30 min.).
