Villa Ligeia

On the beautiful Costa di Maratea in Southern Italy

This stunning, modernist villa and its guest house sleep up to 14 people.


In this beautiful natural setting, with breath taking views across the Golfo di Policastro and up the corniche coast line, they offer you solitude and privacy (rare commodities in Italy in summer) with easy access to Italian life and fun.


As well as the beautifully situated swimming pool, there are several places where you can scramble down to the sea to swim and snorkel.


This largely undiscovered area of Italy boasts many beaches, charming hill towns and wonderful ancient sites to visit, as well as huge nature reserves for trekking. In the towns and villages along the coast you will find plenty of boutiques and markets.  In the piazzas, there are cafes and ice-cream parlours, ideal for Italian people-watching.


The food is excellent with a great variety of restaurants (one of the best in the region is only 7 minutes' walk from the front door).




Overlooking the Golfo di Policastro on the beautiful Costa di Maratea, this modernist villa and guest house sit in 9 acres of private gardens and managed woodland.  They offer you a comfortable place to stay, from where you can access the fun of Southern Italian life…
