Spectacular villa for sale overlooking the island of Capri in one of its most beautiful corners. The prestigious villa is thought to have been built on the ruins of an old Greek cistern and subsequently transformed into a fort, as evidenced by the current shape of the villa. The villa from above enjoys a panorama that is lost 360 degrees towards the open sea and the unmistakable profile of Vesuvius in the distance, offers moments of absolute tranquility and serenity.
On the slopes of Monte San Michele in Capri, in a dominant position with respect to the island, with Augustus' garden at its feet and famous Faraglioni to protect it from the sea, nestled in a corner of the island protected by tall Mediterranean pines with main services at a short distance and easily reachable on foot with a short walk.
The villa, among the most fascinating and evocative of the island, maintains an "aura" of mystery and charm thanks to the imposing and austere architectural style used during construction whose original nucleus certainly dates back to the Greek era as an ancient cistern.
The villa perched on the slope of the mountain rises on two levels. On the first level the large living room with vaulted ceilings with a majestic stone fireplace of 1600 introduces us inside the villa, dining room can comfortably accommodate up to 12 diners and next to it the fully equipped kitchen, guest bathroom, laundry and storage room complete this level.
On the first floor there are 5 bedrooms each with its own private bathroom. Two of the five rooms are embellished with an artistic fireplace that makes it pleasant to spend even in the room in the cold winter evenings. In a side wing of the villa another bedroom with private bathroom.
The upper level of the villa is enriched by large terraces, covered and embellished with characteristic stone columns and covered with wisteria creepers that satisfy both sight and smell with their own colors.
The villa is surrounded by a large private garden of about 3,000 square meters made of flounces and embellished among others by tall Mediterranean pines that give shade and a pleasant background sound in days of sea breeze thanks to the rustling of the wind that is wedged among its branches.
The entrance colonnade fully reflects Capri style and leads directly to the entrance of the villa both through 80 steps and thanks to a mobile platform.
