This magnificent villa is located a 10-15 minute walk from the «Piazzetta» (main square) and the center of Capri. Fantastic, panoramic views over the entire town and the bay of Marina Piccola can be enjoyed from any point along the property. The villa is reached by following a small, pedestrian walkway leading from the main square, though the historical center of Capri. From the pedestrian walkway, once you reach the foot of the property, there are approximately 92 steps up to the main gate. From here, guests can enjoy a private lift (or for the health conscious, walk up an additional 72 stairs). The panoramic views, the perfumed gardens, and the multi-level terraces and pool deck are worth the walk.
On the ground floor : the main entrance door leads into the living room with fireplace. The living room is adorned by pieces of antique wooden furniture and the utmost beautiful paintings of the famous German painter, Diefenbach, who lived on the island at the beginning on the 19th century.

The living room opens into the dining area, which is furnished with a large dining room table seating 8 people. Three windows face the beautiful garden.
