Very interesting house in a panoramic location in Anacapri on the Isle of Capri. Exhibits and rooms very well laid out in English and Italian. Nice garden. Terrace cafe was closed due to off season.

This place is exactly as others are describing - a pleasant stop with beautiful gardens and views, and not much else. The history of the owner, and the house, is fascinating. If you have only a day in Capri, maybe not worth it (especially on weekend when things are crowded, and this place is decidely less pleasant when crowded), but... More

This was a great museum with lovely views of the water and a beautiful garden. Do not miss this if you get to Anacapri.

We were pleasantly surprised to learn about this author and view his house. However the gardens were amazing and the views even better!

The grounds are lovely...the views are spectacular...we bought the book "The Story of San Michele", memoir by Axel Munthe because it is a very interesting life story of turning a dream into reality. Don't miss seeing this site!

Although we were not familiar with Axel Munte before our visit to his house, my husband and I are now fascinated by him and have started reading his books! The house and gardens are absolutely beautiful, well maintained and the information provided re. Munte is excellent. Well worth a visit, even if you are not familiar with him, to get... More

This is a nice little museums with nice gardens, but not for that price. There are nice views from the gardens, but you have them everywhere else.

This Villa is a must visit destination on Capri. I say this reluctantly because part of its charm is how quiet and peaceful it is. It is well publicised and easy to find, but it seems few people venture in. The gardens are beautiful, the view is one of the best on Capri and the opportunity to relax enjoying light... More
