- About The Experience
Accessible only by foot, 20 minutes from Capri’s famous Piazzetta, this peaceful villa with stunning views is an idyllic retreat offering breathtaking scenery and privacy. The villa’s history dates back to the 1800’s when it was a countryside house for farmers. Guests can enjoy a swim in the pool—not a common feature on Capri—dine outside and cook for guests in the external kitchen while admiring the view of Mt. Vesuvius is the background.
- Location Description
Capri’s infamous Piazzetta is a small but decidedly trendy locale, where one can linger at elegant cafes, jewelry shops, or historic bars, and experience the glamorous social scene. While enjoying an aperitif or having a late afternoon snack, people watching is the preferred pastime. The most iconic structure in the Piazzaetta is unquestionably the 17th century Torre del Orologio—thought to be the old cathedral bell tower—which boasts a magnificent clock decorated in majolica. From the Piazzetta you can make the 40 minuet trek to Tiberius’ island retreat Villa Jovis (Jupiter). Admire the remnants of this splendid villa and its vantage point on the cliffs; looking out over the islands of Ischia and Procida, the Sorrentine Peninsula and the Bay of Salerno. You can arrive at Capri via ferry or hydrofoil from Sorrento’s port Marina Piccola; 20-30 minuet travel time. Capri is also accessible via Naples from one of the ports; Molo Beverello or Calata di Massa. Either option will bring you to Capri’s Marina Grande—also home to the island’s tourist office. From there you can catch a taxi to the Piazzetta and then walk 20-30 minutes to the villa. It is recommended to hire a porter in advance to transport your luggage to and from the villa.
Nearby Attractions: A taxi ride or bus (from the center of Capri (the town) can get you around the Island and to the commune of Anacapri. Enjoy the languid atmosphere on this part of the island by visiting the charming cafes, restaurants, and bars, or simply wander about, taking in the sea air and historic architecture. Be sure to visit the many Churches of Anacapri, such as San Michele Arcangelo in the historic center. This Baroque place of worship was built between the 17th and 18th centuries and is one of the island’s most important attractions. It has a stunning paved majolica scene by Neapolitan master Leonardo Chiaiese, depicting Adam and Eve’s expulsion from Eden. Be sure to visit the infamous Blue Grotto—a majestic sapphire sea-cave known since ancient Roman times and splendidly illuminated by a large underwater opening, making visits possible throughout most of the year. It is accessible only by small boat tours. Hire a boat to take you around the island, particularly to the Faraglioni di Mezzo—three massive 80-100 meter high stacks created by the erosion of the wind and sea. Approximately 150 meters out to sea these impressive formations have an arched opening, which small boats can pass through.
