A romantic 5 bedroom villa on a private hillside in Capri, only a 10 minute walk from the Piazzetta. Featuring beautiful terraced Mediterranean gardens, a pool with an outdoor shower, and panoramic island and sea views.
Seacoast-Capri/Ischia Villa 10
With white columns, terraced Mediterranean gardens, and panoramic island and sea views, Villa Viviana offers the quintessential Capri experience from a romantic and private hillside setting. By day, watch the sunlight sparkle off the Bay of Marina Piccola; by night, step out onto the lit terrace and look out at the village’s lights twinkling below.
Offering 13,000 square feet of outdoor space, Villa Viviana is well suited to family celebrations, al fresco meals, and special events. Linked by stone steps, Villa Viviana’s gardens are located on four different levels, and planted with geraniums, cactuses, and olive and citrus trees. The upper terrace, where the swimming pool and outdoor shower are located, offers spectacular panoramic views. On the lower levels outdoor amenities include a ceramic-topped dining table, a dozen wooden lounge chairs, hammocks, and seating areas.
Villa Viviana is beautifully furnished with antique wooden furniture and paintings, including the world's largest private collection of artworks by the German painter, Karl Wilhelm Diefenbach, the late 19th century artist to whom a museum has been dedicated in Capri's Charterhouse of San Giacomo. Overlooking the garden, the living room is comfortably furnished with a glass-topped table, two sofas, and a fireplace, and opens onto a dining room with seating for eight. The kitchen is equipped with modern amenities including a dishwasher; a laundry room and powder room are also located on the main level.
Upstairs, the villa’s five bedrooms are situated on the same floor, each with marble en-suite facilities. The sea-view master bedroom has a fireplace, separate closet space, and access to a small terrace with a built-in stone bench through its French doors. There are three more double bedrooms, two with sea views, and a fifth bedroom with a single bed. One of the double bedrooms can be set up as a twin bedroom upon request. A sixth bathroom located in the hall, as well as a full second kitchen.
While private and secluded, Villa Viviana is located only a 15 minute walk from Capri’s main square, or Piazzetta, and its restaurants and attractions. Like many of the homes on Capri, Villa Viviana can only be reached on foot – porter service is recommended for your arrival and can be arranged through your Concierge. A small walkway leads from Capri’s main square, through the island’s historic town center, to the foot of the property. From there 92 steps take your to the main gate, where you can take advantage of the private lift or walk up the remaining 72 steps to your private hillside perch and its stunning views.

ADDITIONAL VILLA DETAILS -
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 Viviana 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

Recommended Local Restaurants
Within 10-15 minutes walk of villa, there are many dining establishments, We feel the following are the best.
Mammà-Via Madre Serafina 6, 80073 Capri Tel +39 081 837 74 72 www.ristorantemamma.com A One Star Michelin establishment just a stone's throw from the famous piazzetta, this charming restaurant decorated in Mediterranean colours bears the mark of Michelin-starred chef Gennaro Esposito. The focus is on the flavors of the Campania region while also paying tribute to traditional dishes from Capri. Enjoy Pizza Napoletana and a selection of fried dishes at the typical 17C vaulted restaurant next door. This is one of the most beautiful spots on the island, with a sweeping terrace over the Bay of Naples. Upper moderate to expensive.
La Capannina-Via Le Botteghe 12b, Capri Tel 081-8370732 www.capanninacapri.it/it/ Highly recoomended restaurant, just 100 meters from the Piazzetta. One of Capri's most celebrity-haunted restaurants for decades, the owner's, the De Angeleis family, are genuine hosts, and great people. The discreet flower-decked veranda is ideal for dining by candlelight. Specialties, aside from an authentic Capri wine with the house label, are ravioli capresi and linguine con lo scorfano (flat spaghetti with scorpion fish), squid stuffed with caciotta cheese and marjoram, and an exquisite "Pezzogna" (sea bream cooked whole and topped with a layer of potatoes). The nearby gourmet store and small late-night bar across the side alleyway are under the same ownership. Upper modertae pricing.
Pulalli Wine Bar-Piazza Umberto 1 4, Capri Tel 081-8374108 To find a hideaway in the jam-packed Piazzetta just look up, to this little terrace next to the clock tower. A bird’s-eye view comes with wine, a selection of cheeses, or a meal—the risotto al limone (lemon-flavored risotto) is specially transporting in this magical setting. Moderate prices.
Aurora-Via Fuorlovado 18/22 Tel 081-8370181 www.auroracapri.com/home.htm Though often frequented by celebrities—whose photographs adorn the walls inside and out—this restaurant offers courtesy and simpatiairrespective of your star status. The oldest restaurant on the island, now in its third generation, it has a sleekly minimalist interior, but if you want to see and be seen, book a table outside on one of Capri's chicest thoroughfares. The cognoscenti start by sharing a pizza all'Acqua: thin, with mozzarella and a sprinkling of peperoncino (chili). Also try the Gnocchetti al Pesto con Fagiolini Croccanti e Pinoli (dumplings with pesto, beans, and pine nuts)—but leave room for the homemade sweets. Often open until 2 am, the newly opened Aurora Bar across the way serves aperitivi and light meals.

The villa with the vista 10/10
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.
