Anacapri | Bedrooms: 7 | Sleeps: 14

Rates: from £0 per week

The island of Capri is one of the most picturesque and sought after locations in the Mediterranean Sea. A legendary idyll, the island's captivating mix of rough nature and hedonism has charmed everyone since Roman times.
Enjoy the island's finest in this stunning aristocratic retreat located in the dreamy Anacapri - away from the hassle and buzzle of Capri's Piazzetta, yet just a stone-throw away from it.

One of the few remaining aristocratic homes on the island of Capri - a portion of the building dates back to the 16th century - this villa dates from the early 19th century and has been recently restored and redecorated becoming an international design-award winning property. Step through its entrance gates and you will immediately notice why it's called Il Giardino di Capri (Capri's Garden): it is obvious that the villa possesses one of the most beautiful gardens on the island; nearly 1 hectare of pine and palm trees, colourful flowers, bronze and marble sculptures and covered gazebos. Wander through this garden of Eden exploring the pergolas and terraces with plush sitting and dining areas by Gervasoni, Casamilano, Boca do Lobo and Arketipo. The villa has a magnificent heated swimming pool with Jacuzzi tub and is furnished with chaise lounges and table are by Gervasoni. A striking stairway leads to a Capri style pergola covered with climbing bougainvillea and to the entrance of the villa situated at the top of the property from where there is a spectacular view of the Island and Mediterranean sea below. Left abandoned for decades, the villa has been restored to its former grandeur by its current owner. Decorated in a dreamy palette of blue, white and grey, superbly mixing Mediterranean and contemporary pieces, only the finest materials were employed in the restoration. The result is a villa which has become one of the most sought after destinations in Italy. Il Giardino di Capri is divided into a main and guest house. Five bedrooms are located in the main villa, each with private bathroom, air conditioning, satellite TV and mini-fridge - some even with access to a terrace; while the guest house has two queen-sized bedrooms. The living room embodies the essence of the renovation: original floor tiles and a marble fountain from the 18th century have been lovingly restored and perfectly harmonise with Gastón y Daniela fabrics and De Dimora custom-made rugs. The island is yours to enjoy: relax by the pool, roam through the lush gardens and let the staff pamper you - the services of a chef, butler and maid are included in the rental. Alternatively, it's just a 10min drive to the nearest beach, Villa San Michele is just down the road, Mount Solaro rises behind the villa, while the famous piazzetta is just 3km away.

Visit the Piazzetta – the heart of Capri. It’s a tiny square but always has a bustling atmosphere.

The shopping scene in Capri is fantastic. The streets are lined with luxury designer boutiques –Armani, Prada, Gucci and Louis Vuitton to name a few. For crafts, pottery and local delicacies visit the less touristy town of Anacapri.

Water sports are also very popular in Capri. You can dive and snorkel at Marina Grand, the centre of water activities in Capri. You can also hire canoes and take boat trips, which are the best ways to experience the beauty of Capri. A must-do is to visit the blue grotto - the iridescent blue waters are a sight not to be missed.

Another way to appreciate the landscape of Capri is to take a walk along a coastal path. We recommend the nature trails from both Capri and Anacapri. Many trails descend down to an inlet area where you can cool off with a relaxing swim.

For the best views, walk up to the highest point of the island, Monte Solaro. For those who aren’t afraid of heights, we recommend to take the chair lift up - the views are worth it.
