Contessa


Description

Welcome to Villa Contessa, a grand 3-bedroom villa, placed in prime position for a stunning view of the Faraglioni Rocks, directly opposite from the small coastal town of Marina Piccola. The town sits on the island of Capri, just off the Amalfi Coast, Italy.

From the elevated perch of the villa, a glorious scenic view of the Tyrhennian Sea, crowned by the three great sea stacks of Faraglioni rocks dominating the horizon line, greets guests as they make their way to the patio; shrouded by trees and foliage enough to ensure privacy, the ornately designed lamps that illuminate the patio in the evenings afford an intimate and cozy setting, with comfortable seating thoughtfully placed to marvel at the surrounding beauty. Terracotta tiles and wide vaulted archways, mainstays of Italian architecture, give the villa the feel of an antiquated Tuscan abode, conveying a certain grandeur of the Italy of old. Outdoor lounge areas are in ample supply; several couches and chairs are arranged both out in the sun and within the shade of the villa, to either soak up the rays or admire the temperate climate from afar. Dinner al fresco is simply a must when in Italy, certainly on the island of Capri; an ornate dining table and chairs awaits guests on the stone patio, perfect for either a light continental breakfast, or for a more sumptuous dinner in the evenings.

Inside, the interior boasts just as much ornamentation as the exterior features, if not more; tall patio doors serve to maximize the light flowing into rooms, the arched vaulted ceilings lending a cavernous feel to the villa. No room has been overlooked and has been duly decorated with lavish furnishings; fabulous gilded paintings lining the clean white walls are complimented by the blue colour palette of the upholstery, drawing the eyes around the room. The dining area contains a large baroque dining table and chairs, candelabras, with a grand chandelier installed above it. Marble floors are to be found throughout the villa, not only pleasing to the eye, but to also serve the important function of aiding the regulation of temperature. The open plan living space combines the lounge and dining areas, contributing to the scope of the villa size. The lounge contains plush armchairs for guests to sink into and chat around the elaborate coffee table, or to ease the body after a long day of activities on the island. The fully equipped kitchen is annexed adjacent to the dining area, an efficient work space that holds modern appliances and ample room to prepare, cook and serve wonderful cuisine.

The three double bedrooms, while more muted to allow guests to unwind and relax, also contain some of the lavish furnishings that populate the rest of the house; luxurious linens with ornate patterns cover the beds, with paintings accenting the walls. Two of the bedrooms contain en-suites, and while the third does not, it has access to a separate private bathroom. The upstairs bedrooms have access to the balcony, lined with flower beds and outfitted with a comfortable wicker couch allowing guests to take a few moments in the mornings to take in the surrounding land and seascape in wonder.

LOCATION DETAILS
Within the small coastal town of Marina Piccola, on the island of Capri, Italy, guests of the villa will be surrounded by panoramic views, wherever they roam. The villa and town are situated on the sunny south side of the island, sheltered from the elements by the steep rockface they're built into. An area steeped in Greek legend, Siren’s Rock, which is on the beach just below the town, is reputed to be the spot where Ulysses was seduced by mythical creatures known as sirens on his journey.

Within the town itself, there’s more to see and do than one visit could cover; boat tours to Faraglioni Rocks are available to see the gargantuan rock profile of the sea stacks, each named individually as Stella, di Fuori and di Mezzo. Clear waters that are warm all year round will appeal to swimmers and bathers, and there are numerous shops, restaurants, clubs and pubs to sample while exploring the quaint Italian town. The Gardens of Augustus are a popular destination for island visitors; a historic property, it contains some of the most important flora found on the island, whilst also being a feat of engineering on the terrain it was built on. Adjacent to the gardens, the Charterhouse of San Giacomo will interest lovers of history, built in the 14th century, and one of the oldest structures on the island.
