Wonderful corner of paradise suspended betw… – homeaway e85 gasoline


Overall, the two houses were very convenient and delightfully decorated. Amazing views from practically every bedroom. We loved the pool, enjoyed the sun-heated showers, and appreciated that on cloudy days water could be heated by the electrical heater. It was also great to have access to a coffee maker and a washing machine plus a myriad of utensils, cups, bowls, cookware, and glasses of every kind. Also, Professore provided us with many water bottles, both still and sparking.

The only challenge we experienced was in the kitchen: we were not familiar with the type of gas stove and it took a bit to get used to. The flame kept turning off immediately after being lit. Turns out, you have to hold the switch in the "light" position for few seconds after lighting the stove, then the flames kept going.

Last thing of notice – there is no WIFI in the house. There is a WIFI router and you can pick up an inexpensive sim card for it at one of the nearby stores (unless you arrive on a holiday or after business hours). If you need internet immediately upon your arrival – reach out to Professore ahead of time. He has magical ways of finding solutions!

The villa is clean, spacious and well equipped, with 3 bedrooms in the main villa (2 with double beds and 1 with 2 singles). There is also a separate building with a double bed and its own bathroom (so lots of room for 5 of us). The lounge has TV, radio etc and the sofas were comfortable. The decor is very nice. The photos are a good reflection of the villa, if anything the villa looked better in reality than the photos.

The is plenty of space for eating / drinking outdoors – the main area for seating has a large table and plenty of seats. There is also a smaller table and chairs looking down onto the ocean. There is a BBQ provided although we didn’t get round to using it.

The villa is approximately 20 minutes walk from the centre of Capri, in easy walking distance. There is a bit of a climb on the approach to the villa – something to be aware of. Not really an issue for us though, and you don’t get such good views if you are lower down. I’d say it was worth it! You can get your luggage delivered to the villa when you arrive – something to consider if your bags are very heavy.

The only thing I could think of to improve the villa would be air conditioning. However there are mosquito nets in the bedrooms so windows / doors can be kept open and also there are fans provided. It was also exceptionally hot when we visited (40 degrees C). I would point out that we felt very safe there, so comfortable leaving doors / windows open.

The villa was very nice, and it is in a stunning setting. If you are looking for a vacation in Capri with a breathtaking view and with plenty of space and privacy, this is it. The owner and all of his recommended staff (porter for bags from La Piazetta, housekeeper, etc.) were fantastic and really made our stay effortless. The pictures are very accurate in portraying the property as we found it. Not everything there is shiny and brand new, but it was very clean, comfortable, well kept, and everything we needed. Note that there are actually two separate buildings with the second one having only a one bedroom suite.

The only negative i will point out is that the walk from the villa to La Piazetta and other places is substantial, and walking is the only option (no taxi). If you have not been to Capri, don’t underestimate the amount of walking you will need to do to get between the villa and restaurants, shopping, etc. It was fine for us as a young group that needed to burn off all of the pasta we ate, but it may not be comfortable for some. You cannot have the spectacular views of this villa without getting there first, but it is something to consider.
