Villa Carolina is a stately white stone house, established high on an exclusive hillside in a quiet position on the cosmopolitan Italian island of Capri. This charming villa is surrounded by verdant Mediterranean gardens of 350m square. Overlooking the Marina Piccola and the dramatic Faraglioni sea stacks gives Villa Carolina’s fabulous sea views another dimension of interest. In this commanding position, enjoy the high life in more ways than one - this traditional style Summer residence, with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms can offer understated elegance and a perfect way to unwind.
Air travel to Capri is via Naples - an enjoyable private boat ride will whisk you to the Marina Grande in 30 minutes and from there it is a 7 minute drive to the villa.
This private domaine will enchant you - shaded by towering pines, you can enjoy some well-earned relaxation, but just a short stroll from the villa, the road between Marina Piccola and Capri town allows you to walk to the centre of the sophisticated main town of Capri in just 15 minutes. Here, you will find all the retail, cultural and culinary diversions to which Hollywood royalty and international stars also find themselves drawn, every Summer. Capri town is a magnet for the world’s most glamourous people and the facilities are to match. In one of the stunning cafes, try a ‘sgroppino’ a potent blend of vodka, lemon sorbet and prosecco or the traditional aperol spritz and watch the Italian ‘passiegata’ from the town squares.
Days can be spent by the elegant travertine marble pool on plump sun loungers, enjoying the peace of the location and beautiful sea views. Once you’ve luxuriated by the pool, you can walk to the Piazetta of Capri town and dine at one of the local restaurants - you’ll be spoiled for choice. To do the island justice, it is worth visiting the Blue Grotto or the Giardini di Augusto or enjoying a speedboat tour of the island to see the stunning coastline. For beach clubs you could try the nearby Fontalina which has featured in a Dolce Gabbana ad and also overlooks the Faraglioni rocks.
A housekeeper will visit 3 days a week to take away the work of running the villa and a chef can be provided on request so that you can rest and enjoy meals in this stunning setting.
The bedrooms, kitchen and bathroom of Villa Carolina were recently renovated in blues and whites and book-lined rooms, give this pretty villa a lovely home-from-home feeling that adds to the sense of relaxation.
