A stylish villa with a lovely private garden and pool, located in the centre of Capri
Villa Lennox is a stunning five-bedroom property with swimming pool for rent in Capri. Set in a prestigious and central location, this unique property is located only a 10-minute walk from the Piazzetta and the centre of Capri.
Guests can enjoy panoramic views over the entire town and the Bay of Marina Piccola from the villa’s impressive gardens, which boast water cisterns from the period dating back to Emperors Augustus and Tiberius, a neoclassical style small temple, and bronze statues found in the ruins of Pompeii.
The garden is divided onto three levels, with the top level, featuring a spacious pool deck. The large swimming pool is encircled by palm and pine trees and large potted cacti and is lined by a stone wall covered with violet Bougainvillea.
