Villa Magia Suites is the only of its kind on the whole of the Amalfi Coast, as one of the few villas which can be easily reached from the center of town, yet with unencumbered views over the Mediterranean and large indoor and outdoor spaces The original property was builded up in the 18th Century as one of the many watchtowers that former inhabitants of Amalfi Coast were used to build up to advise population of Saracens Pirate’s attacks. In the 20th century other 2 levels have been added, making of this villa one of the hugest properties in the very center of Positano. In 2015, after another 2 levels addition, we decided to share the beauty of our place turning the property into a luxury villa and a small charming boutique Hotel. LOCATION : Villa Magia is located on top of the famous pyramid of Positano, at the very center of the town. It’s the only villa in Positano from where you can see both the main beaches of Positano: Fornillo and Spiaggia Grande. Villa Magia has 2 different entrances: the main one, San Giovanni stairway, from where you can reach the pedestrian area of the town in 10minutes just following the main street, or, faster, by the famous Scalinatella (a long stairway that departs from the top and ends on the main beach). The other Entrance, from Santa Caterina, allows you to reach Fornillo beach and many restaurants and bars located in that area. This strategic position makes you able to have a pleasant walk using stairways to reach the center, and catch a taxi or public bus that departs every 15 minutes to be back at the Villa. For security reason we keep our gates closed, but each room have its own key OUR STYLE: Villa Magia is a small luxury boutique hotel. We have only 5 rooms; that allows us to try to give the perfect service to our guests, also respecting their own privacy. On this pourpose, on arrival you’ll be given a mobile phone. Numbers of our staff are saved on it so that you’ll be able to contact our staff without having to move from your room or pool to reach our desk. Our staff is available 24 hours a day 7 days a week for any kind of request you would need to be satisfied. It’s an innovative way to feel relationship between staff and guest, we want you to feel like in your house and we’ll try to do our best to experience our new way to make high quality tourism.

This property is amazing and I am so glad we booked. We stayed for four nights and even the rain on one of the days couldn't stop us from enjoying the amazing room, views, food (both the breakfast the staff bring to your room and the dinner downstairs). The staff are attentive

We had dinner on our last night in Italy, and was the best way to end our trip. The restaurant doesnt have a standard menu, so you pick something from the fresh catch of the day and the chef will cook you something with it. Every dish was absolutely delicious, perfect wine

Villa Magia is an extraordinary small hotel in Positano. With a very limited number of rooms and an incredible attentive staff, it is very easy to underestimate the beauty of the building itself and the setting. If you want to be pampered, Villa Magia is the place to go in

Just returned from Amalfi Coast trip. Spent 3 nights in this gorgeous hotel in the 3 bedroom, 3 bath exclusive suite. The views and service were amazing. We did have one small misunderstanding over a billing issue, but it was handled by the staff with grace and generosity.

Hello Positano is a city built on the cliffs and there are a lot of steps wherever you go. Villa Maggia is a great location because it is very close to the road where you leave your car. About 20 steps down and you are in the lobby. It is very central to most restaurants and most times you are going down about 100 steps. You can always take a short taxi ride to get back to the hotel too. Our kids loved the hotel. Being a family run business with children of their own, the owners and the hotel is fairly kid friendly. You can choose to have breakfast in your balcony if you don’t want to head up to the common area. Our children are 12 and 17 and they loved the place.
