This exceptional property to rent on the island of Capri, is a unique historical residence dating back to the early 17th Century. The present owner has restored the villa to its former glory, with painstakingly accurate workmanship and superb interior decoration inspired by its themes of art, to ensure this historical residence retains all of its initial charm. The atmosphere created here is idyllic, peaceful and unbelievably beautiful, both inside and out. Steps lined by columns lead up to the main entrance via a garden filled with century old trees, flowers and an inviting swimming pool, surrounded by plants and original statues. Beside the pool lies an outdoor Jacuzzi and, beyond the pool, stone steps descend to a wonderful ‘secret garden’, including viburnum bushes, pomegranate trees, passion flower vines and climbing roses, creating a perfect setting for relaxing and reading outdoors.
On entering the villa, the impressive main hallway leads to the living room, adorned by arch shaped ceilings, paintings, chromatic lighting, large blue velvet sofas and beautiful flooring with ancient hand painted tiles, which spread through the villa to the dining room to the winter garden. The dining room has a glass-topped table and 10 chairs and opens to the kitchen, which is accessible only to the staff. The winter garden is furnished with white sofas providing comfortable seating on a cool evening, and opens to the garden.
On the first floor, there are five unique and elegant bedrooms including a two-bedroom, two bathroom garden suite, all meticulously restored and furnished. There are also two luxurious bedrooms in the annex. The spacious bathrooms have different themes, and include a Turkish bath, plunge pool, duplex shower, or Jacuzzi. Most bedrooms have glorious, flower-covered terraces with superb views of the sea or the gardens. All rooms have air conditioning, LCD satellite television, DVD, safe deposit box, mini bar, and high-speed internet access.
