Anacapri | Capri Suites

A hotel has rooms, so Caprisuite just qualifies. Two suites only, and a disarmingly eclectic patchwork of features antique, vintage and contemporary as conceived by local architects Giuliano Andrea dell’Uva and Francesca Faraone of Zetastudio.

The lesser of Capri‘s two settlements in every sense, Anacapri is nonetheless close to the famed Blue Grotto and just a chair-lift ride from the top of Monte Solaro and its peerless view over the Bay of Naples: not a bad alternative to the real thing.

Our microhotel occupies part of the 16th-century cloister attached to the village’s main church, San Michele. Some of the original architecture remains, along with the faded colours and rugged textures of ancient layers of plaster. Furnishings, though, come from yesterday’s and today’s design collections.

The Blueroom and the Yellowroom – the former a little grander with its luxury bathroom – share the use of a bright breakfast gallery, a living room and a tiny courtyard, all decked out in playful blue and yellow on white.
