Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday villa in Marina Piccola - Elegant, Classic Seaview Villa

Villa for max 13 persons. It can be rented in small2/ 5p) or large (7/9p) units.

This stunning Villa dates back to the beginnings of the 20th century (a.d. 1920) and is immersed in a wonderful mature Mediterranean garden, overlooking the sea of MARINA PICCOLA. It is a perfect, romantic hideaway, but at the same time a stone throw (just 7 minutes by foot) from the famous 'Piazzetta' in Capri full of life, restaurants and bars, an ideal luxury shopping area. In our garden you can relax on the wonderful oldstyle wooden deckchairs and sip your drinks looking at the sea surrounded by Pine-, Lemon-, Olive- and Palm-Trees, with an intense Rosmarine flavour or Jasmine parfurm under the pergola. Or descend to the beach (Marina Piccola) with a 12 minutes walk, to swim in the incredible turquoise crystal waters. The Villa has characteristic local architecture features like white columns on PATIO and vault on the roof of the internal rooms, alternated to the 'pompeian' typical red colour of the walls (it is named “Casa Rossa”).

The apartments are all equipped with Air-Conditioning (in every bedroom), WIFI and cable TV. You can have lunch and dinner in the garden on a big table sitting 10-12 people. In the evening the incredibile scent and colours of jasmine, bougainvilles and plumbago surrounds you and transforms this in a real magical place. On request is possible to organise, at extra cost, daily cleaning/ cooking service.

The Villa can be rented in different solutions, and the prices vary in the different Seasons. High season starts in May. You can rent either part of it, or the whole Villa.You can rent:

(1) the SMALL FLAT (ground floor): sleeping 5 persons; 1 double bedroom and 3 sofabeds in the livingroom, 1 bathroom (shower) and kitchen. Price range € 1000-1600 / week

(2) the LARGE FLAT (1st and 2nd floor): sleeping 7 persons; 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, price range €2500-3000/week .

To this can be added another fascinating bed- and bathroom which is in the garden like a dependance (the old cistern) and sleeps 2 persons. This fascinating room in the rocks costs 800 € per week.

(3) the ENTIRE VILLA , sleeping 14 persons, price range €4500-5000 /week.

Many interesting places can be the goal of your adventurous trips around Capri, like the ancient Roman Villa of Emperor Tiberio, the light house of Anacapri, the Migliara walk , or the mythical sweem of “I faraglioni” or at Marina Piccola of the rock of Mermaid (Le Sirene). You can also hire a boat and organize wonderful day-trips around the Island stopping in every corner of the coast to swim in the crystal like water, or at the Famous Grotta Azzurra (Blue Grotto), at the Grotta Bianca (White Grotto) or at the Grotta Verde. Also the little Grotta Champagne is tiny but extraordinary.

To arrive to our Villa, you need to take the bus or a taxi from the harbour (“Marina Grande”) direction Capri center. If you take the bus, get off at “Due Golfi” and walk 4 minutes to our home. If you want, at the exit of the boat there is a luggage service which can deliver your suitcases directly at the Villa in one hour. Also the supermarket at “Due Golfi” delivers all the shopping at home.

About Maria Poma Murialdo

I got this property from 50 years.

This historic House is a dependance of the large Villa built by NORMAN DOUGLAS pioneer of Tourism in Capri during the 1920. Soon after he built it, he was called back in the UK by his family because of the industrial crisis and the bankruptancy of the Foster family. After several refurbishments, the RED HOUSE got enlarged and the garden became mature. So I keep on spending money on this jewel. My passion!

Maria Poma Murialdo purchased this villa in 1935

Why Maria Poma Murialdo chose Capri

It is a UNIQUE and HISTORIC site since the beginning of the tourism in the island of Capri in the 1920. Great location and beautifull view and large mature garden.

What makes this villa unique

Stunning View, vast Mediterranean mature garden , central but also away from the crowds. Close to Marina Piccola Beach, characteristic in style and beauty. The typical Pompeian red on the walls alternated to the white columns, the Patio and the Pergolato has always characterized this Classic house, that's why it is called RED HOUSE.

Come to enjoy and relax in this magical historial site!

Bellissima Capri!

  • 5 of 5

Ein sehr stimmiger Aufenthalt! Stilvolles und gut ausgestattetes Haus mit schöner Aussicht sowie grossem Garten an zentraler Lage. So was ist nicht einfach zu finden in Capri! Wir hatten das Gefühl, ein Stück weit Teil der Insel zu werden. Ganz herzlichen Dank an die Vermieterin, dass wir in ihrem Haus wohnen durften.

simply wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful property is a perfect romantic hideaway, amidst wonderful mediterranean plants, which create a very pleasant and relaxing atmosphere when you come back home from a day at the sea. We have been here with our children and we simply loved it. We could live in this wonderful garden, eat outside, and go down to the sea whenever we wanted. At our arrival we were welcomed by the lovely owner, who introduced us to all the amenities of Capri, and showed us around the Villa (we chose the "large" option), it was very clean and welcoming. We will surely come back soon!
