Highs & Lows

  • he small scale of the property makes it feel more like your own home - there’s enough space for all the guests to have the highest level of privacy. The staff and owner Rosa immediately felt like family but still keep it very professional.

  • The whole house embodies the authentic, simple Italian lifestyle combined with a modern touch, which makes for the perfect atmosphere.

  • There’s the daily routine of a beautiful walk through the garden and tranquil lawns, along the pool area with beautiful flowers and olive trees. After more steps, you end up at the private beach, where every room has his own little corner to enjoy the fabulous views towards Capri. We even spotted dolphins here!

  • Location, location, location: away from the crazy crowds in Positano, Capri or Amalfi, this feels like a exclusive hidden gem but within easy reach of the main attractions.
