Points of Interest:
15 minute walk to Piazzetta main square and center of Capri
This magnificent villa is located a 10-15 minute walk from the Piazzetta (main square) and the center of Capri. Fantastic, panoramic views over the entire town and the Bay of Marina Piccola can be enjoyed from any point along the property. Villa Il Fortino is reached by following a small, pedestrian walkway leading from the main square, though the historical center of Capri. From the pedestrian walkway, once you reach the foot of the property, there are 92 steps approximately that lead up to the main gate from where you can either take a private lift or walk up the 72 steps more. However, the panoramic views, its perfumed gardens, and the multi-level terraces and pool deck are worth the walk, as the property takes advantage of an enormous, outdoor space (approx. 130,000 square feet).
No rental cars are allowed on the island

Quite possibly the best views of Capri to be had anywhere in the town. The house is wonderfully set up for idyllic Al fresco living whilst the housemaids, Angela and Anna were charm personified. The accommodation was necessarily Spartan - eg tiled floors and white walls but that is pretty standard in southern Italy.
