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

“Beautiful house with Beautiful views!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

A worth visit if you drag yourself up to AnaCapri...which can be a bit bleak...
The garden is marvellous with stunning views. Go up to the Sphynx at face the Marina Grande from the top...magical

“Beautiful San Michele!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

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!

“Fascinating”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

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 an insight into the time, and to Munte's very interesting prospective of life and issues still relevant today.

“Too pricey”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

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.
