Located on Castiglione Hill, it takes about 12 minutes to walk from the Piazzetta to the villa. LDG LAU
LDG LAU is located in one of Capri's most beautiful and prestigious neighborhoods - on Castiglione Hill. It takes about 15 minutes to walk from the Piazzetta to Villa Laura along the historic walking path, or about 3 minutes by taxi.
When arriving by taxi, you approach the villa from above, and descend a flight of stone steps down through the landscaped hillside. You will arrive at the main terrace with its gorgeous view out over the sea, Capri's Harbor below. This terrace is the perfect place to enjoy a lazy afternoon in the sun or bask in the evening breeze with a glass of wine. As the sun sets, the hillsides come alive with the twinkling lights of houses and the hotels which line the Harbor below.
The architecture of villa Laura features lovely Capri arches and stone steps. Descend another 24 steps to the lovely blue Neapolitan ceramic tiled patio below. Kick back and relax on one of the modern sofas and enjoy your cozy perch above the bustle of Capri below.
From here you enter into the villa's lovely sitting room with its marble columns, ceramic statues from old Sicily, and beautiful antique furniture. In the sitting room there is a stereo, fireplace and a large arched window which gracefully frames the captivating view towards Capri's center. On this ground floor, you will find the first large air-conditioned (or heated) bedroom with a narrow window framing the view over Capri's town - like a painting. The furnishings are antique. It also has a satellite tv, and a bathroom with glass shower en suite. Beside this first bedroom, is another bedroom which also has satellite tv, air-conditioning, and a bathroom with glass shower en suite.
The kitchen is very comfortable and has a 4 burner stove top, and an electric oven. Adjacent to the kitchen is a terrace with an open air sitting area and a beautiful marble table with wrought iron chairs. It has a barbeque and pizza oven - making it perfect for cooking and dining outside in the fresh Capri air. From the living area, you descend down a marble stairway to 2 more bedrooms. The first bedroom has a double bed, satellite tv, air conditioning, a safe, and an en suite bathroom with a shower. The second bedroom has two twin beds, air conditioned and an en suite bathroom with a shower.
