Property type villa
Minimum Stay 0 - 3 nights


About the property

villa, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3)

This is a unique opportunity to discover and enjoy the island of Capri. Set in a quiet part of the island and surrounded by a typical mediterranean garden this small house overlooks the sea and coastline and has amazing views. It has recently been refurbished in typical Capri style so is bright and airy with its white-washed walls and cool blue tiles. There is a bedroom with double bed, bathroom with shower and in the living room there is a pullout sofa bed (one single), dining table and chairs, fully equipped kitchen corner with gas cooker, microwave oven, fridge and sink.

In front of the house there is a shady terrace with table and chairs to enjoy a leisurely meal while watching the boats go by.A few steps lead to the sun roof with comfortable deck chairs so you can have a drink while the sun sets behind the island of Ischia.A path and steps through the garden take you to the large swimming pool which is set into a secluded part of the garden and overlooks the sea.It is shared with the owners, whose villa is built on a lower part of the grounds and does not disturb the privacy of the guests in any way.While walking through the garden you are welcome to any herbs, vegetables or fruit that grow on the extensive property. Because of the terraces and different levels this property is not suitable for children.If you should need a washing machine there is one at your disposal with iron and ironing board.

On arrival you will find a welcome pack of 'goodies' such as: tea, coffee, fresh milk and bread, butter, jam, biscuits so you can relax and unwind straight away. The bus stop is 50 mt. from the gate and a regular bus service will take you in a few minutes to Anacapri(1,5Km and full facilities) or down to the Blue Grotto.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Cathy and I had a wonderful visit to Italy. Our stay with you was most memorable. Sitting on the veranda was as pretty as it gets anywhere. We particularly enjoyed visiting with you and sincerely appreciate all of your help in hospitality. Your flexibility and working around our volcano travel issues was greatly appreciated.

I will definitely recommend to my friends that this is the place to stay on the island of Capri.

"Living the Dream!"

  • 5 of 5

After many months of research on rentals, I chose Anacapri over Capri for the real island living experience. It's less touristy, less expensive and only 20-30 min from Capri by bus. It was also fun walking everywhere or taking the local bus (bus stop 5 min. walk from house). We went with another couple and we booked 2 villas at La Chimera, what a great choice. It was nice to have separate spaces, instead of sharing a villa. We spent hours at the pool with its incredible views of the sea and the lush landscape. The owners, Candace and Peppino were the best. They were very low profile,but there when we had questions and gave us great local tips on restaurants, groceries, private boat ride (worth every euro, friendly and knowledgable boat owner took us around the whole island and let us jump in sea a few times). The property, villas and pool were immaculate, well equipped and quiet. We cooked dinners with local meats and produce, while watching the sunset from our terrace. The only thing I would change is - to stay longer next time. We were "Living the Dream".

Paradise in Anacapri

  • 5 of 5

The "Chimera" cottage was everything we had hoped it would be and more! First of all the owners Candace and Peppino couldn't have been more friendly and helpful.A s soon as we arrived we felt at home!

This property is in a fabulous private and quiet location a short distance outside of Anacapri town with easy access to a frequent bus system and walking trails.

.The cottages sit above the owners property on a cliff overlooking the sea.There are lovely, well planned terraced gardens filled with natural vegetation and landscaping.At the bottom of the terraces is the gorgeous pool with lounges,umbrellas and everything you might need.

.If pools are not your thing there's a patio with table and chairs outside your door and a roof deck above the cottage where you can watch the sunset or enjoy a glass of wine.

Our only regret is that we only had four nights to stay here!

Rare Experience "Villa Life on Capri"

  • 5 of 5

Wow! First the property: Meticulously designed terraces, sloping into the hillside amongst lush gardens, abundant with flowers, trees, citrus, and vegetables. The views looking west from the terraces just outside of the two rental units are breathtaking, particularly at sunset as the view is looking to the southwest.

The way the property is designed, using the hillside, the units are private from the main owners home, and the pool is in its own private little hillside terrace as well, making the perfect dynamic for privacy.

One aspect to the property that a prospective renter may want to consider is coming with another couple and renting both of the small apartments that are part of this private villa home. Each couple would have privacy and both have their own bathroom and small kitchen - the perfect set up!

The experience: Where else could you possibly find a "Local Residential Experience" at a fabulous villa on Capri? Renting villas in Italy is common, but Capri combines all the best that Italy has to offer in an amazing setting perched over the sea! The best part is that most people only come to Capri for the day, turning it into a sleepy little island community from 3pm each day till the next day at around 11am. Not to mention the villa sits in the best area of the island away from all of the tourist activity.

The local restaurant within walking distance has amazing food, service and ambiance, the walk to town takes 25 minutes and serves as an excellent morning exercise ritual to sit in the Piazza and enjoy a Cappucino/Croissant as you plan your grocery needs to procure for lunch or dinner from the quaint, friendly and abundant food shops in the charming little town of Anacapri.

The owners could not be more helpful or easy to work with on everything from bookings, to transportation and general site seeing information on Capri, or the mainland attractions within a one hour boat ride away: Sorrento, Pompeii, Positano, and Amalfi,"The rest of the best Italy has to offer".

I could not recommend this experience more highly and will return to this little slice of "Capri Villa Life", as often as possible!

2 weeks of relaxation and activity in Anacapri

  • 5 of 5

Louise and I had a very memorable and relaxing two week stay with Candace and Peppino at La Chimera. In fact, we were made to feel right at home and after two weeks, we felt as though we were becoming “Anacaprese”! The view from the terrace is breathtaking as we watched boats float past during the day and then as we had a drink and watched the sunset that everyone aspires to see. We have been to the Isle of Capri to stay four times and we love Anacapri as it is away from the “glitter and beautiful people” of Capri. We had some great food and wine and every local would return our conversation (even in our very poor Italian)! Each day, we walked trail after trail around and across the island and then spent the afternoon in the pool overlooking the sea – how idyllic! I recommend this cottage and especially if you like walking as there are so many options up and back to Anacapri and all of the other walking tracks nearby. Paul and Louise, Sydney, Australia

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful 2 weeks in September on Capri. The view from the terrace is breathtaking and the apartment, although not generous on space is more than adequate. We loved Anacapri - less starry than Capri town but more real with great shops and food. We had some of the best food and wine of our lives! I really recommend this cottage - the only reason I don't want to is that we may find it booked when we want to go back there!

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from 11 days in Italy. All was fun, but our 4 day stay with Candace and Peppino was the highlight. The setting is wonderful. You are high above the sea looking out over the boats pulling into the cove to see the Blue Grotto, which is a 5 minute bus ride away. Coffee in the morning, and a drink at night from the patio in front of our cottage greeting and closing out our days was a favorite part of our stay....sooo peaceful.

We are sun worshipers so a few hours a day at the private pool was enjoyed.

Everything on the island is reachable by buses which are convenient and inexpensive...the rides are ADVENTURES, as the roads were built for Roman Chariots and not buses, yet the drivers zip around like they are on an Interstate Hwy.

The property is beautifully landscaped and show lots of TLC and planning for many years.

The cottage is cozy. Not a lot of room but the extra patio space and views make up for it.

The town of Anacapri is very friendly and comfortable. many good restaurants & shops. The people there are out strolling in the evenings and you feel a great sense of community and safety.

The owners were very helpful, were there when you needed to contact them and very helpful with suggestions and assisting with arrangements.

We will be back and we recommend it for anyone who is looking for a memorable romantic getaway.
