The Hotel is situated in a large mature garden with breathtaking views of the island, the bay of Naples, the Sorrento peninsular and the Amalfi coast. Close to the centre of Anacapri and to the chairlift that will transport you to the highest point of the island on Monte Solaro. Also a short walking distance to Axel Munthe’s famous Villa San Michele.
The elegant lounges furnished in the style of Louis XVI, provide a welcoming atmosphere that takes one back to the time when the queen of Sweden and the Kaiser and other friends of the doctor Axel Munthe frequently visited the hotel.
There are 65 rooms, some with air conditioning, and many have terraces or balconies either with a sea view or a mountain view which is dominated by the famous “Barbarossa” Castle dating back a 1000 years.
Each room enjoys satellite colour TV and telephone.
At 300 meters above sea level one can enjoy the sun terraces with exclusive views, where you are suspended between the sky and the sea.
