We had the pleasure of spending seven days at Tirrenia Roberts B&B on the Island of Capri during the first week of October and thoroughly enjoyed it. The property is tucked away on the upper hillside overlooking Marina Piccola. It's about a 10 minute walk up to the main piazza in Capri and about a 5 minute walk down to Marina Piccola. At any point along those well-paved routes are spectacular vistas of the island and the Mediterranean ocean.
The B&B is a converted two story home with 3 guest rooms, all quite different from one another. There is one room down with ensuite bathroom near the pool and two rooms on an upper level. One of the upper rooms is large with a bathroom across a hallway and the other room is smaller with ensuite bathroom. The B&B has spacious grounds including a pool overlooking the Mediterranean and beautiful vegetation.
We stayed in the upper small room at the end of a hallway making it very private and it was roomy enough for a week's stay. The room had a locking amoire for clothes storage and valuables in the room. The queen-size bed was very comfortable. The bathroom had a shower stall with plenty of hot water and adequate room for “getting ready”. There was also a small balcony with a partial view of the ocean. Our room was cleaned daily by very friendly staff. Continental breakfast was served each morning in a lower level dining area where we were treated to fresh bread, yogurt, juice and coffee.
An unexpected highlight of our stay at the B&B, however, was our time spent with the owner Costanzo. He was born and has lived most of his life on the Island of Capri (how lucky is that!). He could (and should) write a book on the recent history of the island. We had many memorable evenings sitting and talking with this incredible gentleman who speaks Italian, English, German and French. He had many recommendations for restaurants and places to visit and never steered us wrong. Our stay was so much more enjoyable because of our time spent with Costanzo.
All in all we had a fantastic time on Capri and would not hesitate to return to Tirrenia Roberts B&B.
