Tucked away in the hilltops above Anacapri—not far off from Emperor Tiberius’s summer retreat—this picturesque villa overlooks terraced olive groves and the Mediterranean. Guests can enjoy views of Capri’s western coastline from the villa’s terraces or drift languidly in the circular pool. The villa provides peace, comfort, and quite to guests and offers great outdoor space to entertain and relax.

This lovely villa was built in 1950 in honor of the mother of Princess Mafalda, daughter of King Victor Emmanuel III. The villa maintains its original splendor—including stunning tile-work—while recent renovations have supplied several modern conveniences. The villa sits on an acre of private terraced gardens with tropical flowers and trees. There is a circular pool (5m/16ft across) with lounge chairs. There is plenty of outdoor seating including external dining area beneath stone arches perfect for alfresco dinners.
