This is undoubtedly the most beautiful place and more magical that my feet have trod. the shimmering beauty was so great that I remember entering the Palazzo and lose his breath. The palace has a unique energy of a sacred blend in harmony with the natural beauty. Oh, also do not forget the scent and flavor of the risotto made by Chef palace. Always come back!

La Baroque is a luxury villa rentals in Amalfi Coast.

Looking down upon the captivating town of Positano and its bay,  this refined and interesting private palazzo of the 18th century is now a sumptuous luxury vacation villa.

Built  as an Episcopal monastery in 1716, during the baroque era, Villa Baroque stands on a rock directly above the bay.  Thanks to Positano’s location along the main trading route for spices, silk, and other eastern imports to the continent,  many merchants stopped here. They left behind not only works of art but a mix of cultures and traditions, and the villa was enriched by many precious objects from these foreign lands. Its painted ceiling, lacquered doors, inlaid-wood furniture, and stucco work resembling  lace were hand-made by the master craftsmen of that time.

Beginning in 1900, Positano became  an enclave of artists and writers who were inspired by the charm of the place to come back again and again. Even when the 2nd world war brought privation and poverty to Positano, the Villa retained its magnificence.  Edward Ghillausen, a Jewish member of the Bauhaus movement, found refuge in Rome from the growing Nazi menace. 

In 1926 Mr. Ghillausen bought this villa, where he lived until he died in 2000 at nearly one hundred years old.  He and his wife Eva Maria Vivaldi hosted many famous artists here, including Picasso, John Steibeck, and Alberto Moravia.  From 1939 to 1945 they gave refuge to other exiled artists and authors, like the German writer Stefan Andres, whose name was given to the road that leads to the palace.

Armin Wegner, Martin Wolf and the Russian painter Ivan Zagaruiko were also their friends. Each of these guests left some part of their hearts and souls in this remarkable abode.

Today, VILLA BAROQUE  weaves its same enchanting  spell  to create a very special holiday experience. Today’s owners, Giacomo, an artist, and Riccardo, an antique dealer, were themselves Ghillausen’s guests.  Feeling the powerful magic of the place and its history, they wanted to preserve it. 

Today they share its timeless beauty and extraordinary peace with a few privileged guests.

Alterations/Cancellations by the Owner

In the unlikely event of a significant change or cancellation of the booking by the Owner, we will inform the client as soon as possible. If requested and if available we will try to arrange alternative accommodation of a similar type, price, standard and location. Alternatively, the client will receive a full refund, but we will not be liable to pay cancellation charges on the travel arrangements or for any other loss.


Luxury Villa Rentals Italy acts only as agents for accommodations and assumes no responsibility for property loss or damage, nor liability for injury, accident, delay or irregularity which may be occasioned either by reason or defect in any vehicle or the acts of any company or persons engaged in conveying the passengers to or from their accommodations. If for any reason beyond its control including force majeure, or the sale of the house, Luxury Villa Rentals Italy is forced to cancel the booking made by the client or his agent, best efforts will be made to offer another property of equivalent standard with which the client will be in agreement. If the price of the alternative property is less, the difference will be refunded to the client, but if the price is higher the client must pay the difference. If however, no agreement can be reached, both parties are entitled to cancel. Luxury Villa Rentals Italy will refund to the client only the rental price paid; no other amounts will become due.

Cancellations by You

Any cancellation by the client (for whatever reason) must be in writing (Including email or fax). The effective date of cancellation is the date we receive written notification. If the client cancels after the deposit has been paid, it will lose the deposit.

If the client cancels after the balance has been paid, it will lose both deposit and the balance.

We strongly recommend that the client takes out insurance to cover any cancellation.


All clients must be insured against holidays risks. Their signature on the booking form is a declaration that the client has a travel insurance and cancellation cover. On the Booking Form the client have to include the name and address of the insurance company and the policy number.

Security and Valuables

Any valuables left at the villa are left at own risk. Neither we nor the Owner are responsible for any loss. When provided, burglar alarms must be activated, safes used and proper care be taken against theft and burglary. It is essential and your responsibility to ensure all doors, shutters, windows are closed and locked when leaving the villa, or when by the poolside/in the grounds. No refund can be given should the client decide to vacate the property as a consequence of a burglary; unless it can be proven that the Owner has failed to inform the client of anti-burglary systems in the villa.

Security Deposit

A security deposit is required to cover the cost of any damages or breakages to, or at the property, any additional cleaning, the cost of telephone and/or other services/utilities that are not included in the rental price. This amount will be payable by the client direct to the Owner in cash in Euros at the arrival.

The cost of utilities and/or other services used by the client or any damage caused by the client will be deducted from the security deposit and the remaining balance will be returned to the client by the Owner at the departure from the villa. If the security deposit paid by the client is not sufficient to cover the cost of such utilities and/or services or damage, the Owner is entitled to recover any additional costs from the client.

It is a client's responsibility to make sure the client deals with the arrangements for the security deposit. We can take no responsibility for any loss in relation to the security deposit.

The Owner reserves the right to make deductions from the security deposit for any extra cleaning, over the number of hours committed to departure cleaning, and to claim against the client for damage or loss, the cost of which exceeds the security deposit.
