Stepping through the gates of La Terrazza in Anacapri , Italy, I thought perhaps I'd wandered into the Garden of Eden. The lush landscape with terraced gardens perched on a cliffside, with a spectacular view, was more beautiful than the photos online could reveal. The Terrazzo Cottage was beautiful, with plenty of room, a great cooking area and a beautiful terrace overlooking the sea. The sound of the waves breaking against the rocks below was soothing. Candace and Peppino, the owners of this wonderful property, were gracious and available, but allowed me 100% privacy as well as being there if I had questions or requests. I feel as though I have made true friends. The swimming pool was perfect, built into the landscape and a great way to end an afternoon. I spent one month at La Terrazza. I came to find peace and rest and a true experience of Italy and Capri Island. My dreams were not just met, but exceeded. I found paradise!

At la Terrazza my husband and I felt as if we were in our own personal, private corner of Capri. We instantly loved the little white house with its light, comfortable sitting room with a useful kitchen area, its pretty bedroom with plenty of wardrobe space and its pleasant, efficient shower room - all in an idyllic setting.
The door opened onto a lovely terrace overlooking the sea, perfect for dining, being partially shaded by a vine-clad pergola.
The roof terrace was in the sun all day long with more amazing sea-views and equipped with chairs and sunbeds.
I enjoyed a daily swim in the impeccable pool approached down steps which led through the beautiful terraced gardens.
However, it was the warmth and friendliness of the owners, Candace and Peppino which made our holiday very special. They had great respect for our privacy but were always on hand to give help and advice when we asked for it. On arrival they were both there to give us the warmest welcome, together with fresh bread and milk, tea and coffee, wine and copious bunches of their home- grown black grapes. They were the perfect hosts, clearly taking pride in their property and delighting in our delight!
Accessibility was another major advantage - we could easily reach anywhere we wanted to go thanks to the frequent and punctual buses which stopped just up the road.
There was an excellent restaurant within walking distance and at the mention of Candace and Peppino's name the local food shop delivered our purchases to the door.
Not surprisingly, we can't wait to go back to these lovely people in a truly lovely place!
Everything as already been said. La Terrazza is a hidden Gem.
We choose this to celebrate our Silver wedding Anniversary, we wanted a peaceful, quiet setting but it exceeded all our expectations.
The views are breath taking, overlooking the bay of Naples and the swimming pool is in its own private setting where you can relax ,close your eyes and listen to the sea and nothing else. Absolute bliss.
The bus service is ideal for getting around €1.60 euros each and so reliable. We did all the tourist things but what we liked the most was all the beautiful walks along the coast line, the scenery is magnificent and because of this we will be planning our next visit in the cooler months so we can plan more walking.
What made our visit extra special was Candace and Peppino , you don't feel like guests but friends. They gave us advice on restaurants , ferry crossing and were at hand If we needed them but not intrusive.The champagne for our Anniversary was such a lovely surprise and just made this holiday so special.
If you want a peaceful ,beautiful and private location then look no further.
We will be defiantly be re-visiting our little paradise.
We stayed in La Terrazza for a week. What else can we say that hasn't been said before. Peace and quiet to die for, a pool to die for, views to die for, sunsets to die for. We were lucky enough to be the only visitors for the week we were there, but even if the other apartment had been occupied, we would still have had total privacy...except for Piccolo, the family dog, who popped in now and again on his rounds! But, again, it would be ideal for two couples.
All the walks and views are too numerous to mention, but don't miss the Natural Arch and a trip up to the top of Mount Solaro by cablecar. When not walking, the little yellow buses were very reliable for getting around...a scary ride up the cliff face to Anacapri! One small grump...we were unable to get a weekly ticket. We used them quite often and had to pay every time, which did mount up.
While on the island our best meal was at Le Arcate restaurant. Our best Bruschetta was at Caffe Michelangelo. Best of the rest...the whole of Capri, but particularly Anacapri, and of course La terrazza.
Altogether heaven on earth...you won't be disappointed if you stay there.
We stayed at the La Terrazza villa in August and could not have been happier with the holiday we had in the beautiful, wonderful Anacapri.
The villa is gorgeous and has everything you need to have a home from home. We ate in most nights and what a pleasure, eating outside with a view of the sun setting over the sea.
We spent the first few days sight-seeing - so many things to do and see - the owners of the villa are so helpful and will tell you all the must sees. The last days of our holiday where spent relaxing by a jewel of a pool set into the hillside.
The property and its view of the sea is so delightful it will take your breath away - it has been built and evolved over time respecting the natural surroundings. Filled with flowers and plants, huge cacti and fruit trees, the owners take such good care of their property.
The island itself is a wonder - so so lovely, Capri is more fancy - Bond St. shops all the highest end brands in an idyllic setting. Anacapri is more like Primrose Hill - full of privately owned gorgeous boutiques. The food is great whether you eat in or out and it is hard to go wrong - the standard is so high throughout.
For us this La Terrazza was the perfect location - peaceful, quiet and beautiful with a frequent, friendly bus service which can take you to the centre of Anacapri in 5 mins (20 min walk) or to dip into Capri to taste the high life.
Thank you for some of my happiest and most content memories - we will return
Anacapri is the quieter town of the island of Capri, there are many small cafès and bars, restaurants, designer boutiques and local shops. There are many interesting sites to visit: a short walk from the property there is one of the Imperial villas of the Roman emperor Tiberius, it's a small archeological site set amongst pine trees and overlooks the bay of Naples, Axel Munthe museum and prize winning gardens, a spectacular chair lift to the top of the island, the Blue Grotto, Gracie Fields' restaurant. Day trips can be made to the Amalfi Coast, Positano, Amalfi, Ravello, Pompeii, Herculaneum, Vesuvius, Sorrento, the Capodimonte museum, the Archaeological museum, the city of Naples with the Spanish Royal Palace and many churches. Boat tours around the island stopping to swim and visit the many caves and grottoes. Walks along cliff paths with historical and botanical landmarks.
