Anacapri Historic Villa
This wonderful villa is right in the center of Anacapri, few steps for every restaurant, shop, walk and sight that matters in the Island. Only ten minutes of private transportation from the main square of Capri, the Piazzetta, is a peaceful world right in the middle of the Island, and the only luxurious property that can fit up to fourteen guests comfortably.
Hidden in the narrow streets of Anacapri, on the Island of Capri, behind majestic green iron gates and 10 feet high limestone walls is this secluded property, which history dates back more than 150 years. It is one of the few remaining historic villas of Capri and was once the residence of the noble family Monti della Corte during the late 1800’s (whose coat of arms is still present on the pillar gates). Once one enters the gates it is obvious that the villa possesses one of the most beautiful gardens on the island that features a striking stairway with a Capri style pergola covered with climbing bougainvillea leading 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.
Despite its size (about 1500 square meters) the garden is a vibrant and abundant mix of different species of trees, plants, flowers, sculptures, fountains and picturesque spots.
The villa, an area of about 400 sq. meters, consists of a ground floor comprised of a large living room, dining room, kitchen and service area, while on the first floor there are six bedrooms, all en-suite and each with different names that evoke an atmosphere of the last century. The property was modernised around 2002 by the then owner because it was in very poor condition to make it a residence for personal use and for friends and international guests visiting Capri.
Francesco Della Femina a local architect and designer was commissioned to restore both the villa and the garden. He achieved his intention to revitalise the whole property, transforming it into a comfortable villa, luxurious and contemporary while preserving its fascinating historic and architectural charm. The inspiration was to evoke a fresh and contemporary lifestyle setting while keeping the feeling of exclusivity and nobility that the old villa still maintained. Ideally, he wanted to create an enchanting place in which to live while being surrounded by the charm of a historic home without feeling the weight but rather feeling inspired by the history.
