Gorgeous Views and a Wonderful Host
Our family enjoyed our stay at the "Wonderful Corner God Paradise Suspended Between Sky and Sea"! Professore Salvia and his assistant, Ivan, were wonderful hosts and a great resource for everything Capri.
Ivan met us at the port and helped arrange to get our luggage to the villa. Paying around 8EU per bag to the transportation company seemed excessive until we made a climb to the villa. It was money well spent.
The climb was also worth every step. The views from the villa were magical. The photos on the website do not do it justice. Also, the pool (that is lit up at night) gives a much needed respite to the weary traveller.
Overall, the two houses were very convenient and delightfully decorated. Amazing views from practically every bedroom. We loved the pool, enjoyed the sun-heated showers, and appreciated that on cloudy days water could be heated by the electrical heater. It was also great to have access to a coffee maker and a washing machine plus a myriad of utensils, cups, bowls, cookware, and glasses of every kind. Also, Professore provided us with many water bottles, both still and sparking.
The only challenge we experienced was in the kitchen: we were not familiar with the type of gas stove and it took a bit to get used to. The flame kept turning off immediately after being lit. Turns out, you have to hold the switch in the "light" position for few seconds after lighting the stove, then the flames kept going.
Last thing of notice - there is no WIFI in the house. There is a WIFI router and you can pick up an inexpensive sim card for it at one of the nearby stores (unless you arrive on a holiday or after business hours). If you need internet immediately upon your arrival - reach out to Professore ahead of time. He has magical ways of finding solutions!
Overall, our stay was magical and we look forward to returning again. Thank you, Professore!
Great villa with amazing views
The villa is clean, spacious and well equipped, with 3 bedrooms in the main villa (2 with double beds and 1 with 2 singles). There is also a separate building with a double bed and its own bathroom (so lots of room for 5 of us). The lounge has TV, radio etc and the sofas were comfortable. The decor is very nice. The photos are a good reflection of the villa, if anything the villa looked better in reality than the photos.
The is plenty of space for eating / drinking outdoors - the main area for seating has a large table and plenty of seats. There is also a smaller table and chairs looking down onto the ocean. There is a BBQ provided although we didn't get round to using it.
The pool was clean, a good size and great for cooling off in the hot weather (and it was very hot when we visited!)
Prof Salvia and Ivan were friendly and helpful. They did not intrude on our privacy which was good, and were contactable if we needed them.
The villa is approximately 20 minutes walk from the centre of Capri, in easy walking distance. There is a bit of a climb on the approach to the villa - something to be aware of. Not really an issue for us though, and you don't get such good views if you are lower down. I'd say it was worth it! You can get your luggage delivered to the villa when you arrive - something to consider if your bags are very heavy.
There is a supermarket 10 minutes walk away and restaurants even closer, so you don't necessarily need to go into town every time you want a meal out.
The only thing I could think of to improve the villa would be air conditioning. However there are mosquito nets in the bedrooms so windows / doors can be kept open and also there are fans provided. It was also exceptionally hot when we visited (40 degrees C). I would point out that we felt very safe there, so comfortable leaving doors / windows open.
I would recommend the villa and would love to visit again!
We cannot say enough good things about Prof. Salvia and his beautiful home.
Prof. Salvia helped make our stay magical, welcoming us, arranging for us a boat ride around the island, helping us in every way. We all (seven of us) very much enjoyed our stay at Prof. Salvia's beautiful house. The flowers, the terraces, the views: it was very beautiful and memorable.
Thanks a lot for your beautiful words.I feel happy and honorated,but first of all I feel compensated for all my efforts to keep this high level of services.
The villa was very nice, and it is in a stunning setting. If you are looking for a vacation in Capri with a breathtaking view and with plenty of space and privacy, this is it. The owner and all of his recommended staff (porter for bags from La Piazetta, housekeeper, etc.) were fantastic and really made our stay effortless. The pictures are very accurate in portraying the property as we found it. Not everything there is shiny and brand new, but it was very clean, comfortable, well kept, and everything we needed. Note that there are actually two separate buildings with the second one having only a one bedroom suite.
The only negative i will point out is that the walk from the villa to La Piazetta and other places is substantial, and walking is the only option (no taxi). If you have not been to Capri, don't underestimate the amount of walking you will need to do to get between the villa and restaurants, shopping, etc. It was fine for us as a young group that needed to burn off all of the pasta we ate, but it may not be comfortable for some. You cannot have the spectacular views of this villa without getting there first, but it is something to consider.
Ho apprezzato moltissimo il giudizio espresso da questi simpaticissimi ed educatissimi ospiti sulla mia casa,molto gratificante per me per gli sforzi continui profusi per mantenere alto il livello di decoro della villa e soddisfare anche le aspettative più esigenti.Che la casa sia lontana dal centro è luogo comune da sfatare,tutte le ville a Capri sono in collina e piene di scale,nessuna al centro. L'isola e' però tanto piccola da tenerla sempre in pugno,per se collinosa e rocciosa,la sua bellezza è tutta qui.Camminare per 15 minuti dalla Piazzetta non è una fatica,ma l'immersione in un paesaggio di incomparabile bellezza da cui lo spirito trae forza e vigore nuovo.Per i più...pigroni poi c'è sempre l'alternativa dei carrrellini elettrici,tipici di Capri,che arrivano fino al cancello della villa anche col bagaglio e tutto lo shopping che si vuole.Affettuosamente grazie,cari amici.
Ultra villa overlooking the sea and the city of Capri, large park with Mediterranean vegetation. The villa is located in a hilly area, absolutely quiet, where you can spend your pleasant relaxing, enjoying the extraordinary Scoglio delle Sirene and only a few steps from the famous Faraglioni. A 10 min. walk to the shopping area, you have a little Paris.
