Amalfi, Sorrento and Islands - Capri
Villa Augustea – Capri
5 Bedrooms – Outdoor and indoor Pools – Gym – SPA
Location and Surrounding Area. This magnificent apartment is located in the heart of Capri, just a couple of minutes’ walk from the famous, celebrity-studded Piazzetta. There is so much to see and do on Capri; a boat trip around the island and into the fabled Blue Grotto, a visit to the Emperor Tiberius' villas or the house-museum of the Swedish physician Axel Munthe. Although the island of Capri has long been a favourite haunt of the international jet set, it manages to retain an idyllic beauty and there are some excellent walking trails across Monte Solaro and over to the three picture-postcard Faraglioni rocks. Monte Solaro soars almost 600 metres above sea level and there is also a chairlift from Anacapri. From the summit, you can see not only the whole island but also across to the Amalfi Coast, the city of Naples and the mountains of Calabria.
Legend has it that Ulysses was seduced by the sirens at Marina Piccola. This delightful little bay is sheltered from the wind and it's highly likely that you'll find the locals enjoying the sun here in the winter and the fresh fish restaurants are excellent. The panoramic via Krupp takes you from Marina Piccola back to Capri via the Gardens of Augustus.
The island of Capri covers a total of only 10 km2 so most of the attractions on the island are within a reasonable walking distance or a short taxi ride away. The ferries to Naples leave from Marina Grande and take about 45 minutes. From Naples, you are within easy reach of Pompeii, Vesuvius, Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast. There are also direct ferries to Sorrento, Amalfi and Positano from Capri. Naples International airport is a ten minute taxi ride from the port.
The Property. Villa Augustea is a prestigious property that sleeps up to 16 people in total. There are beds for as many as ten guests in three stunning bedrooms with sea views on the first floor and six further guests in the two bedrooms in the cottage by the swimming pool. The master suite in the main house has two king size beds, a living area, a luxurious en suite bathroom, Dolby surround sound and a walk-in closet. The second bedroom offers two circular king size beds, a sitting area, an en suite bathroom and Dolby surround sound. The third bedroom has a king size bed, a film projector with Dolby surround, an en suite bathroom and a walk-in closet. Everything in the bedrooms is of the highest standard, from the bedding to the large, Bang & Olufsen, flat screen TV in each room. The two bedrooms in the cottage are connecting; one has two king size beds and an en suite bathroom and the other has a king size bed and its own en suite bathroom.
The living room is enormous and features marvellous works of art on the walls and yet manages to be warm and welcoming at the same time. The state-of-the-art kitchen has everything you might need for recreating some authentic local dishes and a handy island in the centre for either lounging around or preparing meals. The formal dining room seats 14 people and there is also a cozy breakfast area near the kitchen.
Much of your time here will probably be spent in the luxurious wellness centre. You'll find a heated swimming pool, a well-equipped gym, three sensory showers, a massage table and a Turkish bath. Surely there's no better way to pamper yourself than in the comfort of your own home! When you aren't relaxing in the wellness centre, take a wander around the immaculate gardens, have in dip in one of the two swimming pools or just lie back and take in the sea views from one of the sun loungers. The grounds are completely private.
