The Villa is nowadays a 4 storey private house located on one of the most charming alley of the island. Originally it only had 2 floors and was built in the XIX century for a famous American painter who used it to entertain his many famous guests.
He liked his Villa so much that he painted it with its numerous staircases and terraces, as the setting for a sensuous portrait of a dark-haired woman dressed in pink chiffon in his “Rooftop in Capri”.
In 1940 the last two floors were added. Today the Villa is divided into two apartments belonging to the same family. And has a private elevator. The rental flat is located on the second, third and fourth floor and from every window offers a breathtaking view over the gulf of Naples and the whole island of Capri. The apartment has been charmingly restored just a couple of years ago by the present owner who decorated it with a selection of antique furniture and glass chandeliers belonging to her family since generations. Every room has a private terrace and on the top floor there is a very large terrace partially shaded by a pergola, ideal for dinner parties, sunbathing or just for a moment of relax at sundown.
That offers a 360 degree panorama view of every natural beauty of the island including the Faraglioni. On the second floor there are a fully equipped kitchen, a large living with fireplace and a wonderful terrace (through which you can go to the upper terrace), a smaller dining room connected to the living room and one bedroom (with twin beds) with bathroom (shower).
On the third floor there are a large bedroom with king size bed and bathroom overlooking an ample terrace, a large bedroom with king size bed and marble bathroom. On the top floor there is a very large terrace (90 mq) with incredible view of the gulf of Naples and the whole island a beautiful pergola.
