“Must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

The house is beautiful. It is interesting to see old furniture, kitchen and experience life then. The garden is like botanic garden. There are small church and exibition of local birds. The view is amazing.

“Would love to own this house- spectacular views/ gardens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

This little gem in ana capri is a must see if only for the stunning gardens and spectacular views! But the story of the man and his house blended with his love of Capri is inspirational! Enjoy a stroll in the gardens and maybe even take a bottle of prosecco for a toast!

The museum is peaceful with interesting history & stunning views. The gardens are well kept and a visit here is a must when you go to Anacapri.

“Stunning!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

Stunningly beautiful house & gardens...well worth the crowded and scary bus ride up to Anacapri. 5 Euros for a coke in the cafe..so take water in! Mind you it might be one of the prettiest cafe's you ever go to.... To get back down to the Marina turn right out of the Casa and keep walking -it's a long way but worth it!
