This stunning Villa dates back to the beginnings of the 20th century (a.d. 1920) and is immersed in a wonderful mature Mediterranean garden, overlooking the sea of MARINA PICCOLA. It is a perfect, romantic hideaway, but at the same time a stone throw (just 7 minutes by foot) from the famous 'Piazzetta' in Capri full of life, restaurants and bars, an ideal luxury shopping area. In our garden you can relax on the wonderful oldstyle wooden deckchairs and sip your drinks looking at the sea surrounded by Pine-, Lemon-, Olive- and Palm-Trees, with an intense Rosmarine flavour or Jasmine parfurm under the pergola. Or descend to the beach (Marina Piccola) with a 12 minutes walk, to swim in the incredible turquoise crystal waters. The Villa has characteristic local architecture features like white columns on PATIO and vault on the roof of the internal rooms, alternated to the 'pompeian' typical red colour of the walls (it is named “Casa Rossa”).

The apartments are all equipped with Air-Conditioning (in every bedroom but not in the living room) at extra cost (paying use of electricity at €1/Kwh,) WIFI (reception is very bad some time in this corner of Capri, and cable TV.

In the evening the incredibile scent and colours of jasmine, bougainvilles and plumbago surrounds you and transforms this in a real magical place. On request is possible to organise, at extra cost, daily cleaning/ cooking service.

About Maria Poma Murialdo

I got this property from 50 years.

This historic House is a dependance of the large Villa built by NORMAN DOUGLAS pioneer of Tourism in Capri during the 1920. Soon after he built it, he was called back in the UK by his family because of the industrial crisis and the bankruptancy of the Foster family. After several refurbishments, the RED HOUSE got enlarged and the garden became mature. So I keep on spending money on this jewel. My passion!

Maria Poma Murialdo purchased this villa in 1935

Why Maria Poma Murialdo chose Marina Piccola

It is a UNIQUE and HISTORIC site since the BEGINNING OF TOURISM in the island of Capri in the 1920. Great location and beautifull VIEW and LARGE MATURE GARDEN. The property was passed down through generation, and I value this fortune and I appreciated every day this property that belong to myself and through the years stay the same and keeped athe traditional caracther of an HOUSE in Capri, with the VAULTED ROOF to collect rain water and WHITE COLUMNES to decorate THE PATIOS. The external colour POMPEIAN RED is still keep to show and taking inspiration from the discover of the city of Pompey nearby, and to the ROMAN EMPIRE. Remember that TIBERIO EMPEROR build a magnificient residence on the top of the island were he loved spend his time to rules the EMPIRE.

So this Island has always attract for its beauty people from all ages and all times.

You TOO will be astonished from the magic site and atmospher that transpirethe island.

What makes this villa unique

Stunning View, vast Mediterranean mature garden , central but also away from the crowds. Close to Marina Piccola Beach, characteristic in style and beauty. The typical Pompeian red on the walls alternated to the white columns, the Patio and the Pergolato has always characterized this Classic house, that's why it is called RED HOUSE.

Come to enjoy and relax in this magical historial site!

Bellissima Capri!

  • 5 of 5

Ein sehr stimmiger Aufenthalt! Stilvolles und gut ausgestattetes Haus mit schöner Aussicht sowie grossem Garten an zentraler Lage. So was ist nicht einfach zu finden in Capri! Wir hatten das Gefühl, ein Stück weit Teil der Insel zu werden. Ganz herzlichen Dank an die Vermieterin, dass wir in ihrem Haus wohnen durften.

Amazing place

  • 4 of 5

The Red villa is absolutely wonderful with an incredibile sea view and an amazing garden. The position is perfect, it is Very closed to The famous Piazzetta and all The rest of The places. The owner and her dougher are really kind. We were disappoint only for the cost of electicity because Capri is really expensive. Anyway i suggest this magic place!

simply wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful property is a perfect romantic hideaway, amidst wonderful mediterranean plants, which create a very pleasant and relaxing atmosphere when you come back home from a day at the sea. We have been here with our children and we simply loved it. We could live in this wonderful garden, eat outside, and go down to the sea whenever we wanted. At our arrival we were welcomed by the lovely owner, who introduced us to all the amenities of Capri, and showed us around the Villa (we chose the "large" option), it was very clean and welcoming. We will surely come back soon!

Excellente situation, vue de rêve, repos assuré !

  • 5 of 5

Un grand merci à Maria et Flavia pour leur gentillesse et la facilité des échanges que j'ai eu avec elles pour organiser mon voyage.

La maison est exceptionnellement située au-dessus de Marina Picola, et les terrasses offrent toutes une vue de rêve sur la mer...

Idéalement située, la maison n'est pas très loin non plus de la fameuse Piazzetta, donc, de toutes les commodités que l'on peut rejoindre à pied.

Une adresse que je recommande chaudement, car à Capri, trouver un endroit idéal très bien positionné tout en étant au calme, reste assez difficile.

Cette maison comble tous les points.

Il faudrait même que cela reste un secret pour connaisseurs !

Je ne vois aucun point faible pour cette adresse.
