Located right above the exclusive beach area of Marina Piccola on the Eastern coast of the island, this lovely property was built in 1903 by the infamous Italian architect from Milan, Gallozzi, in the times when Capri was governed by the North of Italy and the majority of its directives came straight from Milan.
Gallozzi chose the villa’s position and building structure according to his personal tastes. He decided to build the villa in a strategic and comfortable position, taking advantage of the second-to-none view out over the Mediterranean and the world famous Faraglioni rocks, between the sea and the main square of Capri. He built this masterpiece from nothing, as no building structure had existed here before the construction of La Poeta. Almost every piece of furniture on the grounds are antique, with several of the pieces engraved from the 18th and 19th centuries, and much of the pavement is 18th century ceramic or marble tile .
As time passed, this property became a refuge for 20th century writers, directors, and artists, as numerous Royal parties took place on its grounds.
Those familiar with Capri will know that this beautiful island is not an easy one to get around; few properties are easily reached without the trials of steep slopes and endless steps. Some are only accessible on foot. La Poeta is blessed with many privileges and comforts on this account. The villa is easily accessible both on foot (by crossing the famous little piazza, full of colourful Mediterranean flowers and plants), or by car (there is a car park on the villa’s grounds). Its fabulous position right by the Bay of Marina Piccola (whose beach offers umbrella and sun lounge rentals) allows it to offer one of the best terraces on the whole island of Capri and enjoy the sunrise each morning.
