Villa | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
sland of Capri is located south of Naples, 3 km from the Sorrento pensinsula. This small island is about 6 km long and one-three km wide, covering an area of about 10 square km. Between Mount Tiberio to the east and Mount Solaro to the west is the small town of Capri; Anacapri is located to the west of Mount Solaro.
Villa Anacapri is located in Anacapri, halfway between the village and the famous Blue Grotto. Capri and the harbor are just 15 minutes by car or bus. The house is located on the road to the Blue Grotto, just 3 km (less than two miles) from the center of Anacapri (with restaurants, spa, tennis, shopping, taxis) and even less to the Blue Grotto beach.
This historic villa has one of the most spectacular views of the Mediterranean and the Island of Ischia. The villa was built by Prince von Hessen-Kassel, a distinguished German painter, who dedicated the villa to his wife, a descendant of the Italian Royal Family. This beautifully designed and charming house has been recently restored to create a harmonious blend between classic taste and modern creature comforts. Beautiful paintings and prints adorn the walls, filling each room with a sense of warmth, character and distinction. Walled gardens are full of fragrant Mediterranean flowers. A large terrace has both shaded and sunny areas, several built in banquettes, and it boasts breathtaking views of the blue sea. The terrace is surrounded by olive trees and decorated with pots with citrus trees and other flowering plants. A circular pool is just off to the side of the house.
Motorbikes can be hired on the island, but not cars. You can bring a car onto the island, but we recommend using taxis and bus to get around.

Caesar Augustus was the first to discover the charm of Capri when he visited the island in 29 BC. He was followed by Tiberius who started the construction of 12 villas (27-37 AD). In 19th century the Island of Capri became one of the most sought-after destinations for European painters, poets, philosophers and aristocrats. Many of them decided to stay for a year or take their permanent residence in the island that evolved into an international cultural center (Thomas Mann, Pablo Neruda, Maxim Gorkij, Graham Greene, Axel Munthe, Norman Douglas, Friedrich Alfred Krupp, Augustus Kopisch, Curzio Malaparte and Cerio to name just a few...).
