The colours of Capri

Designed by Neapolitan Architect Giuliano Andrea dell’Uva, Capri Suite is a “maison de charme” that offers its guests the services and hospitality of a hotel suite.

The building, located in the center of Anacapri, is part of the ancient Monastery of Saint Michael. The lodge, overlooking the inner yard, used to be a walkway connecting the church to the convent. Nowadays it is the place where breakfast is served. The lime-washed stone wall – typical of Capri – shows the stratification of the structure over the centuries. A low threshold in the masonry connects the loggia to the main hall, where the original lime colours, in various shades of blue and water green, are the background to the modern furnishings that create an evocative stylistic contrast.

From the living room you can access the two suites, different in dimensions and services, whose names are inspired by the intense blue color of the sea of Capri and the bright yellow of the Sorrento lemons. Both of them have private bathroom, air conditioning, TV and free wifi.

The Blue Room has been obtained from a part of the 1700s dining hall of the monastery of Saint Michael. Is is furnished with vintage objects mixed with contemporary design accessories. The peculiarity of this room is the large bathroom created in the ancient porch of the church cloister. Neopompeian frescoes emerged from the masonry and contrast with the large anthracite resin shower.

The Yellow Room features a nineteenth-century canopy bed, art photographs and travelers’ inscriptions on the walls about their favourite places in Capri. In the inner courtyard, a macroscopic library more than eight meters high showcases large vases with agaves and cactuses, typical plants of the island.
