Villa Giulia, a historical Caprian country residence in Neapolitan style dating back to the early 17th century and once home to the Barons Monti Della Corte, is one of the few Caprian villas of the era still intact. The present owner, a distinguished antiquarian and art collector, has painstakingly restored the villa and, due to the quality of the workmanship and superb interior decoration inspired by the themes of art and travel, this historical residence retains all its charm. The atmosphere has not been disturbed by the careful restoration carried out by the owner who, whilst maintaining the historical and architectural features of the bui...lding intact, has managed to transform the house into an exclusive historical residence. Behind the villa's green gate, one finds an enchanting world so idyllically peaceful that it is easy to forget that this paradise lies right in the heart of bustling Anacapri. Steps ornamented by columns lead through the garden up to the main entrance. In this glorious setting, with its century old trees, marvelous displays of flowers, and splendid swimming pool hidden amongst the flora, the owner and her staff extend the warmest of welcomes to each and every guest.
The overwhelming lounge is adorned by arch shaped ceilings, plenty of flowers, oriental carpets, and old stoves. The villa offers 6 unique and elegant rooms and one, two bedroom, two bathroom garden suite, all meticulously restored and furnished with beautiful pieces of antique furniture, which are immersed in the exquisitely perfumed and marvelously colorful "literary garden" and equipped with every modern comfort. The rooms are named after famous guests who have stayed there over the centuries and have been beautifully furnished in a way that perfectly complement the style of the renovated building. Guests can find sheer relaxation in its spacious bathrooms, which boast, according to the theme of their room, a Turkish bath, plunge pool, duplex shower, or Jacuzzi. Most bedrooms have glorious, flower-covered terraces with superb views of the sea or the gardens. All rooms have air conditioning, LCD satellite television, DVD, safety deposit box, mini bar and Internet access.
