“The Beauty and Hospitality of Anacapri”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

My stay at Il Giardino dell' Arte has been a highlight of my 38 days in Italy. From the moment I contact Franco via email everything has gone smoothly, my every need & want attended to. Returning each night to Anacapri and enjoying my walk to the B&B was as if I were returning home. Franco's attention to every detail is a nod to his many years of experience at a major hotel in Anacapri. There is nothing Franco and his family overlook. I was in The Olive room for 5 nights. What a beautiful spot Franco chose for me, "You have the Bay of Naples in your arms" he told me. From my terrace I most certainly did. The room was bright, clean and well appointed. The breakfast was more than anyone could ask for. I loved it being brought right to me and presented on a tray each morning. The walk to Anacapri is a fun, winding 10 minute one. Access to Capri couldn't be easier on the bus. My favorite memories are of enjoying a lemoncello from Franco's freezer and his conversation that accompanied it. I now have a friend in Anacapri! I know my family and I will return to make more memories. Grazie mille Franco!!

Although this was one of the most expensive B&B's we stayed at in Italy, it was also the best.
We had a large room and bathroom plus a private patio surrounded by superb gardens which are carefully tended by Franco, who also picked us up at the dock in Capri and returned us there after our stay.
Breakfast was excellent and so was the service.
The room included a fridge, hair dryer, tea and coffee.
We only had 2 nights at Il Giardino but we wish it was a week.
It was one of the few B&B's on our trip where we could have stayed all day and foregone the sightseeing.
Thank you Franco for a memorable stay.

Franco made us feel welcome from the time he picked us up from the dock and delivered us back to Capri Town for our departure. His garden was the highlight for my wife, a devoted foodie/gardener, as Franco took the time to tour her through his pride and joy. Our breakfast on the terrace with the panoramic view was worth the trip out of Capri Town. Franco was helpful at every turn with restaurant recommendations and logistical support for our wanderings. Equally impressive was his ability to speak excellent English with us and speak fluent German with our next door neighbors from Munich. The rooms were large and clean, the breakfasts were convenient and hearty. The wi-fi was spotty in our room, so we had to go to the common room to use it, but that was the only downside. We'd stay there again without hesitation

My husband & i and our son and daughter in law just left Anacapri after our 4th visit to Il Giardinio Delle Arte, we keep going back to visit our "family" due to the beauty, tranquility, level of service, cleanliness and special attention that Franco and his two daughters, Arailia & Rafaella lavish on their guest. A small hotel, away from the hustle and bustle of town so it is quiet at night and with a view like no other. Ischia due north, the bay of Naples and Sorrento to the East, WOW. There is so much to do on the island and as Franco was born here he is full of info on the sights, best restaurants, shops, etc.
They care about their guest and we appreciate them all so much.

The delicious breakfasts 'al fresco' with a view towards Vesuv and the mainland over the garden are wonderful. It does not get full rating however due to the rather high price for a B&B.
Franco and his daughter are very helpful hosts.

Nice things come in small package. The arty small hotel/residence did not disappoint at all, superb service being picked up from the port upon arrival, settled down, check-in and served a snack on a sunny afternoon. A homely difference. Though located in the safe neighbourhood, idyllic environs, and gardens abound, I actually don't mind the walking slightly uphill bit to Anacapri [20min], good exercise each time before going out for a hearty fishy meal in Anacapri town. Free wifi, breakfast included, clean, room individually surrounded by gardens and plants, sun patio and the friendly bees buzzing around. A little paradise

We enjoyed a wonderful few days at this very comfortable guest house, with excellent attention from Franco to ensure that we had all we needed, and that we knew all we needed to know about how to get to everwhere on the island (and even where to go when we continued on to Rome!) Breakfast (including beautiful fresh figs from the garden) and snacks were taken on the terrace with views over the Bay of Naples, looking over the lovely gardens. The location was fantastic - an interesting walk to the town of Anacapri, and not too far to walk down to the Blue Grotto (and easy to get the bus back up again). Franco happily arranged transport to and from a couple of restaurants for us for dinner, transported us to and from the harbour, and suggested good times to visit attractions so as to avoid tour groups. We were so pleased to see a fridge and an electric kettle in our room, so making our own tea was a welcome luxury after a month touring through Europe. We would thoroughly recommend this guesthouse.
