Villa Kronberg is one of the most romantic places you can desire. Completely renovated a few years ago, we tried to organize the new spaces to make it comfortable and bright. The view is the most exciting of the island. The veranda is a perfect area to have a nice meal under a fresh shade, the terrace the ideal place to have a romantic dinner looking at the beautiful moonlight of Faraglioni. The Villa has two double bedroom, a big living room, a kitchen and a bathroom, for a total of 4 sleeps.
Our property is one of the most relaxing places you can desire. An oasis of silence, full of flowers and terraces facing each one on a different panorama. On the sides of the heart of the property, the main terrace of this beautiful scenario, where the Faraglioni are the main characters, rise the two Villas, Villa Kronberg, which gives the name to our property, and Villa July, completely independent one from the other. Each one privately terraced.
I'm an opera singer studying at the Conservatory of music Santa Cecilia in Rome. During the college year in the mornings I study, go to school and take care of my property. In the afternoons I baby-sit two kids, a boy of 9 years old and a girl of 7 (the one in the picture is my nephew!). From June to October I study and I take care of my property, replying to all the guests emails, keep in touch with them when needed, keep in touch with the cleaning lady daily.
Guendalina Casa purchased this villa in 1910
“We had a fantastic time at Villa Kronberg. We particularly enjoyed the stunning view, the very good condition of the property and – last but not least – the hospitality of the owners. Booking and refund of deposit went absolutely trouble-free. Would definitely go again.” Alex Sutter, Berlin, Germany
The first time you look from the patio of Villa Kronberg to the faraglioni, everything else melts away. Staying a night on the isle of Capri has been a dream of ours ever since we first stepped on the island 19 years ago. This visit we stayed 3 nights...still not enough time to take in all Capri has to offer. We feel lucky that Guendalina was gracious enough to find us those days just before the busy season, and making sure we had great weather. Having stayed in properties around the world, in destinations like Wales, Scotland, Florence and Paris, this property will land on the top of our list of "must return to" accommodations. Everything we needed for the two of us, we did not feel cramped, but not recommend this property for more than 4 people. Very private, yet not a major task to walk up to the city of Capri, or walk down to Marina Piccola, both just 10 minutes away. We can confirm some of the recommendations from other past guests...we had some great meals during our stay, and never needed to take a taxi...just bus or hotel shuttle. When you stay at the villa, make sure you take advantage of the view from the bathroom/shower...opening the shutters is like taking a shower outside! My only wish is that Guendalina and her family make available the rich history of her family that led to the construction of Villa July/Villa Kronberg. Still dreaming of the blue water.
Our group of 4 had a wonderful stay at Villa Kronberg. The patio has undoubtedly the best view on the island and it's very private. It is an uphill 10 minute walk to the main square but the views are great and it is one road so hard to get lost :) The interior of the villa is quite dated but the beds were comfortable and we really didn't spend much time in the apartment anyways. Everyone was SO helpful in our arrival but be sure to confirm your time of arrival because we missed a ferry and had to get help from neighbors as we missed our checkin time due to a missed ferry from Naples. I would highly recommend the Villa Kronberg and the island of Capri in general. Lovely, relaxing stay!
We joyfully returned for our second stay at Villa Kronberg. Guendalina takes great pride and care in the upkeep of the property for the comfort of her guests. The rhythm of the days is pure gift. The vistas, breathtaking. The location and proximity to Marina Piccola & to town is ideal. Walking is divine or the bus stop is only a short distance from the front gate.
The market is a 10 minute walk and the pull cart is fantastic to transport groceries. Some of our favorite restaurants in Capri town are Panorama, Buca di Bacco, Pulalli Wine Bar (above the piazza) & Le Grottelle. In Marina Grande: Bagni Tiberio & L'Approdo and in Marina Piccola: La Piazzetta & Torre Saracena. For take away meals the Buonocore Bakery (gelato! tell Mario we sent you) & Capri Pasta are wonderful. Please visit our friends Antonio & Alvina at da Constanza shoe store which is just across from Ristorante da Giorgio on your way to the piazza. Hand crafted, beautiful sandals - made to order...a very special souvenir or gift.
There are many activities and day trips to enjoy both on and off the island but we prefer to remain quiet, cook at the Villa & visit with friends.
It is very difficult to leave the treasure of this property and the grace we find there. The thought that soothes is that we desire to return every other year and as I mentioned to Guendalina, I don't want to stay anywhere else on the island. Villa Kronberg now feels like home and we are grateful.
This is a quaint villa on a beautiful setting. For the two of us, it was a sufficient amount of room. I am not sure more than two people would be comfortable here. But the views...Amazing! Nice kitchen to prepare your own meals if you choose, or walk to many of the restaurants to dine out. Being on the Island, most of your walks will include a steady uphill or downhill either way, or you could hop on the bus for a couple euros as the bus stop is just minutes away. The seagulls will serenade you to sleep at night. Two patios to enjoy your meals Al Fresco or just sit and watch the sun come up over the Island. My only suggestion would be to have a cart to take luggage to the Villa. If you have any walking restrictions, you may want to inquire about getting your bags to the Villa and up the spiral staircase to the bedrooms. If I ever return to Capri, I will be getting in touch with Guendalina to stay here again. Very helpful and good communication. Always willing to answer questions. Thank you Guendalina, Giulia and Rosina for all your help!!
Very well situated halfway down road to Marina Piccolo.
Very nice and accommodating owner. The place is pretty comfortable and reminds one of the cottage in the Muskokas,
Do yourself a favour and rent a Scooter! I did... The only way to go. EVERYWHERE
We stayed here as a family of four (consisting of two adult daughters) and absolutely loved our time. Our only disappointment was not being able to stay longer! The owner made checking in quite late very easy for us which we were thankful for after a late arrival on the Monday. The view from this villa has got to be one of the most stunning in all of Capri. Kronberg is also situated off the road and is very private which we absolutely loved. My father is obsessed with boats and spent his whole day sitting on either of the two terraces watching the world go by. The three girls in the family spent the same time tanning on the terrace and reading. Lunches were spent sitting at the table outside looking over the stunning view. Marina Piccola is very close and we usually walked down (using the stairs that cut straight down from the main road) every afternoon to go for a swim. Dinners were mostly spent up in Capri town which is a short 10 minute walk from the villa. Supermarkets are also close to the villa so we would get any lunch and breakfast food there. We rented a boat and did a tour of the island and my whole family agreed that Villa Kronberg was the best situated villa on the whole island. The villa itself is clean and whimsical in its design. It had everything we needed but you'll find you spend most of your time outside anyway! Cannot fault this place and hope to come back someday - especially after our parents raved that it was our best family holiday to date.
The property is placed 15 minutes walking from Capri town center and 15 minutes from Marina Piccola beach. The area is particularly quiet, because it is built on top of a mountain. The view is simply stunning. A beautiful terrace with plants and nature all around is the hearth of this place. If you really want to know Capri, here you'll have the chance to fall in love with it and, above all, see the real face of Faraglioni.
