Villa Caprile deserves its excellent rating. Staying in June 2014 for five nights we enjoyed our room with its large shaded terrace, looking towards Capri, and Ischia to the right.
We arrived late after a long drive, and followed the Villa Caprile signs, and discovered the next morning we were closer to Santa Agata than we had thought. We have stayed in this area three times, and thought our location at Villa Caprile good for Nerano, Marina del Cantone and Massa. Sorrento was also an easy drive, and it's worth remembering a car is very useful here in providing independence and access to more remote places.
Our room was clean, cool and typical of a small restaurant with rooms. Breakfasts were generous, and varied from day to day with regard to egg dishes and pastries, and delicious preserves. We ate on the terrace, and were looked after well by Pasquale. He and his wife work very hard and put in long hours, and took time to give us local info. We ate from the main menu, and were pleased with the individual preparation of each choice, having fish, pasta, pizza and salad during our stay. We thought that the food preparation and presentation was better than more expensive restaurants which we have visited over the years in this locality.
The pool is open to residents between restaurant opening hours, which is clearly stated on the web site. Over the weekend the restaurant was busy, but we were not disturbed by people coming and going. Parking on site is safe and secure, with each guest being provided with a remote gate opener.
It is obviously quieter in the hills, and a little cooler in the evenings than on the coast, so if it is the Sorrento busyness you want you need to stay in Sorrento. If you want traditional Italian cooking, simple and clean rooms and good service Villa Caprile would suit you well. We will certainly return for another short stay when we visit this part of Italy again. This year we have since moved on to Ischia for five days.
