OVERVIEW

Hopping off the ferry from Naples or Sorrento, a cable car whisks you up to Capri’s refined main square, from where a mere few minutes’ walk will take you to the Ca’ del Sole. Hidden within a garden of pine trees, palms and Mediterranean vegetation is this chic white villa and its soaring vistas over Capri’s undulating coast and the sparkling sea.

The property boasts numerous outdoor terraces which feature sunny and shady relaxation areas, two pools (a smaller heated one and a larger one with sea views) and two dining areas, one which is found on an exquisite rooftop terrace. This is the ideal place to take in a sunset aperitivo before dinner under the stars.

Stepping inside the villa, you’ll find a stylish, fresh contemporary look. The spacious living room has large white sofas and vibrant touches of pop artwork and cushions and wall sections in Klein blue. The indoor dining room has more modern art as well as designer table and chairs. Next to this is a fully equipped kitchen with a large fireplace, a breakfast table and access to a cozy terrace, perfect for enjoying a morning coffee.

The first floor is home to three master bedrooms, each with its own personality and luxurious furnishings and amenities. These include beautiful sitting areas, Murano chandeliers, Jacuzzi tubs and beautiful views of the Gulf of Naples and Monte Solaro. Two additional bedrooms are found in the Dependence next to the smaller pool, bordered by sunbeds.

When not swimming in the outdoor pools, guests can relax in the spa which has a heated pool, fitness area, Turkish bath and massage room. Leaving the villa, guests can enjoy browsing Capri’s luxury shops, have a drink at the cafés of the piazzetta or admire the island’s bucolic nature in the Giardino di Augustus, a lovely botanical garden near the piazzetta.

At the beginning of the first century AD, one such royal, the Emperor Tiberius, built twelve Capri villas with the most well-known being Villa Jovis, also known as Villa Jupiter Capri.
Situated on a tall cliff overlooking crystal blue waters and nestled among tall green trees, the villa was a retreat equipped with all the luxuries of royalty.
