The Capri Villa Camelia complex consists of two connecting buildings, extending over two floors.  The first area, referred to as The Landlords Residence blends naturally into the Saloni al Mare  or Lounges on the Sea, consisting of large, common areas where all the villas guests can unite.  Wide lounges with marble floors, vaulted ceilings, antique crystal lamps, important pieces of antique furniture, and renowned works of art reflect the owner’s sophisticated taste as a true art lover and expert.

This property, situated waterfront on the Island of Capri, stands out for its unique history, location, and internal decor. Villa Camelia lays directly seaside, right above the shore line, immersed in a vast area of gardens and terraces. The property is built above the former villa Palatium or The Palace by the Sea, of Roman Emperor Tiberius.  Some of the original villa’s remains can still be seen in parts of the property. From the terrace of the property, one’s eyes are captured by a superb view out on to the Peninsula of Sorrento, Mount Vesuvius, and the Bay of Naples. The entire plane of Capri, with the port of Marina Grande, Villa Lysis, and the townhouses of this infamous village can be seen from the gardens.  On the opposite side of the property, the view expands towards the hillside of Monte Solaro and the bright white Fenicia stairs of Villa San Michele, just where Anacapri village begins.

This amazing villa, built during the second half of the 18th Century on the remains of an Anglo-English fort, was initially inhabited by an infamous Hungarian painter, who built the property on top of the ruins of a Roman Palace.  Subsequently, the property was bought by a famous French painter who hosted many renowned musicians and composers in his home.  According to legend, the composer Bizet, while vacationing here, remained so inspired by the sounds of the sea that he composed one of his most famous pieces of work, the Opera Carmen.  The property then passed to a famous foreign Countess, Mona Strader Bismarck, in the mid 20th Century.
