This fully remodeled historic villa (300 square meters) features dazzling views of Capri and Ischia. Five bedrooms with six bathrooms, a magnificent garden spread over more than 2,000 sq. m with a large Jacuzzi pool, oven, barbecue, and vegetable garden. The villa's central part features vaulted ceilings and dates to the 19th century. Antique and modern furnishings are intelligently combined to make for a special home full of personality.
Each of its five bedrooms — covering the villa's three floors — has its own private bathroom (ensuite): each a one-of-a-kind work of art clad in magnificent handmade majolica tiles. The first floor has a first bedroom, over 40 sq. m., with a king-size bed, and a second bedroom with a king size bed and two single beds, and a third bedroom with two single beds. The fourth bedroom, with a king size bed, is a little slice of heaven. Built in the attic, it features a covered scenic terrace that appears as if suspended between heaven and earth. The fifth bedroom, equipped with a comfortable sofa bed, is on the ground floor.
The villa has many common areas, invitations to spend time relaxing and enjoying good company: Such as one living room with a fireplace and sofas on the ground floor, opening onto the garden, and another on the first floor, likewise with comfortable sofas, a satellite TV and a peerless view of Capri.
The spacious kitchen is furnished with a large wooden table that can seat up to 12 people. While maintaining the finest elements of traditional local kitchens it has state-of-the-art equipment.
Featuring terraces, the large garden is crossed by stone walkways, which are edged by statues, lemon trees, vine-covered trellises, bougainvillea, and the colorful blooms of Mediterranean plant life.
An antique marble bathtub in the middle of the garden has been made into a fabulous Jacuzzi pool where you can relax and savor the sight of the fiery sun dropping into the sea of Capri.
A large majolica table, a wood-burning oven — perfect for making pizza and bread — and a large barbecue are on a terrace covered by a pergola decked in ivy. This makes for a truly special atmosphere to host amazing dinners and lunches in absolute Mediterranean style.
Guests have the use of a lovely small vegetable garden surrounded by olive trees, where tomatoes, zucchinis, eggplants, apricots, lemons, oranges, basil, and other local seasonal fruit and vegetables grow.
Our names are Massimo and Francesca, and we are the owners of this family villa, where we have spent time since we were kids. We have always been in love with this truly special, magical place.
Feel free to contact us by email or social network if you have questions about the villa or need suggestions about what to see in the area. We've also given our friend, Rita, the task of pampering our guests. Rita knows the area like the back of her hand. She'll give you a warm welcome and help you make your stay in the villa absolutely unforgettable. She'll be your "local buddy," recommending where to go, unusual destinations, and the best places to be seen and experiences to be had. Perhaps you'd like an amazing dinner in the villa, or an exclusive trip to Capri or the Amalfi Coast in a sailboat or a local motor boat, called "gozzo." Or try a unique experience immersed in nature: beautiful walks, rock climbing, kayaking, or diving. Or perhaps take a tailor-made trip to Naples, Pompeii, and Paestum (with its temples and, of course, its mozzarella), Mount Vesuvius, and excursions off the beaten track.
Katia is not only our outstanding chef, she also helps keep the villa clean and tidy.
And Michele is our master gardener who knows the secrets of every corner and every plant of the villa's extensive flower and vegetable gardens.
The villa's location is strategic, set between the Sorrento peninsula and the Amalfi Coast, just 15 km (9 miles) from Sorrento and just over 20 km (13 miles) from Positano. Easy to reach by car (with four private parking places), it is located on an ancient Roman thoroughfare. It's an easy starting point to go on enchanting walks on the Sorrento peninsula and the Amalfi Coast.
The villa is just 600 meters (about six blocks) from a lovely village with all the basic services you might need (two restaurants, a small market, a butcher, a coffee bar, a pharmacy, newsstand, tobacco shop, postal office, and public transportation). A mere twenty-minute walk (or five-minute drive) takes you to Cala di Mitigliano, which is among the area's loveliest wild natural coves.
You can get to the world-famous beach, Marina del Cantone, in just a 15-minute drive or 20-minute bus ride.
A 30-minute stroll (or five-minute drive) will bring you to the peninsula's highest point, Mount San Costanzo, which has a small deconsecrated church, affording a sweeping view both of the magnificent Gulf of Naples and of Salerno.
The weather is lovely all year round because of its southwestern exposure, 300 m (900 feet) above sea level, and its location right across from Capri means you can always see the sunset.
Naples is the closest airport to the villa (60 km – 38 miles).
Rome airport is 290 km (180 miles) away from the villa. To go from Rome to Naples it’s possible to take the fast train (1 h 10 min).
