Luxury Capri villa with pool – Set on the cliffs overlooking the world-famous Rocks of Capri, Faraglioni di Capri is an elegant Mediterranean-style villa in an absolutely stunning location, within walking distance of the rocky beach of Marina Piccola Bay and the lively Piazzetta in the heart of Capri village centre.
Awake each morning to unparalleled sea-views and enjoy your first morning espresso from the comfort of your terrace, among colourful bougainvillea, scented rosemary and Jasmine. The beautiful garden offers several shaded areas, you only have to choose whether to relax under the tall pine trees or the stylish gazebo by the pool conveniently located next to the bar area, in case you fancy a refreshing cocktail. A gentle sea-breeze will reach you wherever you are and will be particularly appreciated in the hottest hours of the day.
The mountaintop village of Capri and its famous Piazzetta with resturants, cafes and boutiques is only a stroll away from your villa and as is the rocky beach of Baia di Marina Piccola, accessible via a steep, scenic path just outside the villa. Boat excursions depart from the pretty harbour and are strongly recommended to fully enjoy the beauty of this idyllic region, the cobalt blue Tyrrhenian sea, the rocky coastline with striking panoramas and cheerful coastal villages with their whitewashed houses such as Amalfi, Positano and Ravello.
Capri is a pearl of the Tyrrhenian sea, a unique island known all over the world for its beauty and striking panoramic views. During your holiday make sure your itinerary includes a visit to the little bays of Tragara,with the unrivalled view over the Faraglioni (the cliffs), Pizzo Lungo, Marina Piccola, Arco Naturale and Punta Carena. In Marina Grande you will see old fishing boats moored in the harbour and, if you are not scared of heights, why not take the chair-lift up to Mount Solaro, enjoying the views from the summit of the mountain. Grotta of Matermania (Matermania Grotto) is also well worth a visit. For a bit of culture, Villa Jovis and Villa Damecuta are part of the Roman heritage of this island, as well as Giardini di Augusto, the gardens of the Emperor Augustus. At Bagni di Tiberio (Tiberius’ Baths) you can still see the original Roman walls and the natural pools from the times of the Emperor Tiberius. After exploring the island, don’t forget to stop in one of the many open-air cafes of the renowned Piazzetta di Capri and watch the world go by until dinner time, when you can choose from a wide variety of gourmet restaurants and Pizzerias especially in Anacapri.
