Spectacular villa dominating the island of Capri, the gardens of Augustus and the Faraglioni.
On the slopes of Monte San Michele in Capri, in a dominant position with respect to the island, with the gardens of Augustus at its feet and the famous Faraglioni to protect it from the sea, in a corner protected by high Mediterranean pine trees with the main services within easy and short distance can also be reached on foot with a short walk.
The villa, among the most fascinating and suggestive of the island, maintains an aura of mystery and charm all of its own thanks to the imposing and austere architectural style used during the construction, whose original nucleus certainly dates back to the Greek era as an ancient cistern.
The villa perched on the side of the mountain rises on two levels. On the first level, the large cross-vaulted hall dominated by a majestic 1600th century stone fireplace introduces us to the villa, the dining room can comfortably accommodate up to 12 guests and next to it the fully equipped kitchen, the guest bathroom, laundry room and storage room complete this level.
On the first floor there are 5 bedrooms each with its own private bathroom. Two of the five bedrooms are embellished with an artistic fireplace which makes it pleasant to spend cold winter evenings in the rooms. In a side wing of the villa another room with private bathroom.
The upper level of the villa is enriched by very particular terraces, covered and embellished with characteristic stone columns and covered with wisteria vines that satisfy both the view and the smell with their own colors.
The villa is surrounded by a large private garden of about 3.000 square meters built in flounces and embellished among others by tall Mediterranean pine trees that provide shade and a pleasant sound background in the days of sea breeze thanks to the rustling of the wind that is wedged in its branches.
The entrance colonnade fully reflects the Capri style and leads directly to the entrance of the villa both through 80 steps and thanks to a mobile platform.
The panoramic swimming pool towards the sea is surrounded by a large solarium. When you are immersed in the pool it seems to be suspended between the sea and the sky, giving unique emotions.
