A luxury 17th century villa with a lush gardens, swimming pool and hot tub, 5 minutes’ from Anacapri’s centre
Villa Aurora is an exclusive historical residence with a Neapolitan style, proud to be one of the few island villas dating from the early 17th century that remains intact. Situated in the centre of Anacapri, with the main square only five minutes’ walk away, this luxury villa offers a convenient location to explore the scenic beauty of the island while enjoying the surroundings.
Passing through the gates of the villa, guests are welcomed by magnificent tiered gardens with vine-covered gazebos, groves of ancient pines and colourful flowers. The swimming pool is flanked by verdant Mediterranean vegetation that only enhances the total feeling of relaxation that can be enjoyed in full tranquillity. Additionally, there is a spacious Jacuzzi, where guests can sit back and relax with a glass of champagne.
The marble staircase, ornamented by columns, leads up to the main entrance. The interior is breath-taking due to the superb decoration that has retained the initial charm created by the historical and architectural features. This stately residence reflects an original representation of a noble summer holiday home. The elegant lounge features arched ceilings, tasteful paintings and sumptuous sofas in blue velvet.
Meticulous workmanship can be seen throughout the villa, also represented by the ancient hand-painted tiles that spread from the living area and dining room to the winter garden, entirely protected by the glass walls and ceiling. Thus, even the sights from the interior space capture the greenery and natural light. Here, guests can gather on cosy sofas on cooler evenings. The villa not only offers a stunning al fresco dining area, but also a beautiful interior dining room with a glass-topped table.
Suitable to accommodate up to 14 guests, Villa Aurora boasts seven elegant en-suite bedrooms distributed between the main house and the guest house. The main house has five bedrooms, comprising the master suite with a king-sized bed, three additional bedrooms with queen-sized beds and one twin bedroom. Most bedrooms offer incredible sea or garden views.
Furthermore, the guest house includes two double bedrooms with queen-sized beds. This separate sleeping area is nestled in the marvellously colourful ‘literary garden’.
Staying at Villa Aurora guarantees a luxury holiday experience in Capri, filled with indulgence and lavish comfort.

Villa Aurora is located only 5 minutes’ walk from Anacapri’s main square, after following a charming old footpath near the town centre. The villa can only be accessed by foot; however, guests can use the porter service for assistance with luggage to and from the villa.
The island of Capri has two towns: Capri and Anacapri. Anacapri is considered the more authentic side of the island, suitable for visitors who prefer the peaceful surroundings, and walking and hiking trails rather than the more crowded and touristic area in Capri town.
Anacapri is characterised by an enticing blend of Mediterranean colours, lush tropical vegetation, quaint small houses, tiny Neapolitan tailors’ shops and artisan shoemakers. Guests who are interested in discovering historical sites that have attracted the travelling elite since the Roman times or exploring the numerous secluded beaches and caves along the unique coastline, will find themselves in an idyllic haven in Capri.
