"A hidden beauty"
You can't even imagine the beauty hidden within the villa. You'll be impressed by marbles, decorative stuccoes, tiles, period furniture and many more well preserved secrets as you get in through the main entrance.
Villa Camarella, over 800 sqm, was built in limestone masonry in the typical Capri style. The architects Mazzocca and Talamona, who were very well-known in the early Forties, planned the villa in accordance with film director Carlo Ludovico Bragaglia suggestions.
Its structure is "cubiform" and it sets off the spaces of the interior rooms which are decorated in a perfect Capri style with stuccoes frames, columns, decorated portals, vaulted ceilings, and Arabian windows and chimneys.
The Ground Floor consists of an elegant state area. The floor is covered with an artistic mosaic made of inlaid marble. It is unique because it comes from a church bombed during the war. The large salons overlook the colonnades and the three patios of the floor, two dining rooms, kitchen and bathroom, besides several utility rooms.
To get to the upper floors you go up an ancient staircase made of chestnut parquet. You'll find this kind of parquet both in the corridor which leads to the bedrooms and in the hall of the main bedroom.
On the first floor there are the guests' bedrooms.
Four bedrooms with their respective bathrooms and clothes closets. A terrace overlooking Villa Jovis and a loggia overlooking Monte Solaro. In the more artistic rooms the floors are covered with hand painted majolica.
On the second floor there is the main apartment with a big salon with a stunning view on the Vesuvio and on Villa Jovis. The main bedroom has a bathroom, a clothes closet and another room with bathroom which can be used as an office. The rooms are surrounded on their three sides by a terrace with a breathtaking view on Castiglione, Monte Solaro and on the whole Gulf of Naples.
On the third floor there is a bedroom with bathroom and clothes closet, a loggia and a huge terrace with a 360° view on the Tirrenean Sea, the Gulf of Naples, Monte Solaro and Villa Jovis.
The Villa is furnished with five fireplaces, four big majolica heaters, more than ten authentic Roman amphorae and XVIII and XIX century furniture.
"A plain style"
Villa Timberina was built afterwards and due to its characteristics is to be considered more sober than the main Villa. Nevertheless, it has marbles and precious majolica heaters as well as a breathtaking view.
Villa Timberina, about 400 sqm, is the second house within the property. Built in the Fifties, it is itself made of limestone masonry.
It recalls in a more sober style the typical Capri architecture. In this case we have spaces which overlap other spaces with colonnades and terraces on various levels. There are stuccoes frames and vault ceilings both inside and outside.
The ground floor consists of two apartments. The custodian of the Villa is currently living in one of them. A gym and a maintenance room complete the floor.
Through a small entrance surrounded by hedges you get to a long white staircase which leads to the large terrace provided with a masonry oven for pizzas. From the terrace you have access to the lemon trees.
On this floor there is the third apartment on two levels, with salon, kitchen with pantry and five bedrooms with bathrooms, clothes closets and wardrobes. Even the floor of this apartment is covered with precious period majolica.
From both levels, directly or through a colonnade, you can access two large terraces with a stunning view on the island of Capri, the gulf of Naples, the Vesuvio and Monte Solaro.
Two fireplaces, three big majolica heaters, some antiques and few pieces of modern furniture complete the interior.
