We stayed with Franco for 3 nights in his lovely property which has 5 rooms. As other reviews have said, Franco is a real gent who picked us up from the port and gave us a full tour guide of information during our 15/20 minute journey up the hills - he has lived there many years and is a fabulous source of information. Once you have arrived, accept the lovely wine offered and then study the map and ask as many questions as you have which will all be answered!
Our room had its own terrace and garden, was immaculately clean, and breakfast was served any time until 11am - and was plentiful!
The views from the property are fabulous and look out over Franco's garden - where he is always to be found looking after all of his plants and vegetables. I lost count of how many varieties of tomatoes he has planted and he loves his roses :-)
It is a 10 min walk into the centre of Anacapri - is very easy to find - I was worried we might get a bit lost but we didn't! It is lovely to be there once all the day trippers have left and just wander around, there are plenty of places to eat and of course Franco is happy to recommend the best
Very much recommended - although you will be lucky to get a room this year if you haven't already booked!!

The owner Franco is without doubt the most polite helpful and generous host you will ever meet
We had three nights at this wonderful villa we stayed in a nice double room with a small private garden used for breakfast. The Villa gardens are amazing and if you hear any clipping sounds it will be Franco tidying and trimming the roses etc. Breakfast was very nice, fresh bread, fruit , tea orange juice , coffee yogurts etc About 10 mins walk from the centre of Ana Capri . Ps you will find the many small streets interesting ! Worth a visit for sure

We were met at the Marina Grande in Capri by Franco, the owner of Il Giardino dell Arte for a transfer to his lovely small hotel which is also his home. Franco is a wonderful host who provides all the information to explore Capri and Anacapri. The rooms are clean and comfortable and all our boxes were ticked. We thoroughly enjoyed our breakfast on the patio. We will recommend il Giardino dell Arte to our friends if they are visiting Capri.

Room Tip: If you can, ask for a sea facing room. They have their own courtyard for privacy.

Stayed at this place for two nights in May 2014. Franco the owner is a real gent. He picks you up from the port so no hassle for you. The accomodation is beautiful. Great view of the sea. Franco loves his garden and it is full of stunning roses, flowers, olive trees and vegetables. A delight just to walk around. Extremely clean and 10 minute walk to the main part of anacapri for shops and restaurants. Anacapri is not somewhere you would want to stay if you had walking difficulties as it quite hilly. Great walks for everyone else. I would not hesitate in staying here again. Thanks Franco for a wonderful stay.

Room Tip: There are two rooms with their own terrace. We stayed in one of those. Lovely private area and you...

Staff are very friendly and so kind.
So beautiful hotels location.
I was enjoy stay!!

 旅行中のトラブルで、当初予約していた日程をキャンセルして、カプリ島観光をスキップしようかと思ったのですが、ホテルに連絡した所、フランコ伯父さんが「泊まれないのは残念だが、カプリ島を訪れる時は連絡をくれたら、島内観光に案内してあげるから何時でも連絡をしなさい」との優しい言葉を頂き、お言葉に甘えてカプリ島を訪れる事に。

 フランコ伯父さんが車でケーブルカーの駅迄、迎えに来てくれて島内観光に連れて行ってもらい、カプリ島の美しさとフランコ伯父さんの親切な対応に感激して、急遽予定を変更してカプリ島に泊まる事にしました。

 ホテルは民家を改造したコテージ風で、敷地内からは海が見下ろせて、各部屋の専用テラスでウェルカムドリンクを頂き、地元のタイルで飾れた清潔な部屋でのんびりした時間を過ごす事ができました。

 ホテルの場所が中心街から離れた場所にあるのですが、夕食はフランコ伯父さんお勧めのレストランに車で送迎してもらい、美味しい料理を満喫する事ができました。
朝食も地元の焼きたてのパンや畑で取れたフルーツをオープンテラスで楽しむ事ができます。(雨の日は屋根付きの朝食専用ルームで)

 カプリ島と言えば青の洞窟観光ですが、ホテルから20m程の場所に青の洞窟行きバスの停留所があるので、とても便利です。ホテルから青の洞窟迄、歩いて20分程度との事だったので、島内ののんびりした雰囲気を楽しみながら歩いて青の洞窟迄行くのも良いかと思います。

 またカプリ島を訪れる時は、このホテルに泊まりたいと思います。

Very good B&B, nice view from terrace. Franco was very friendly, helped us really a lot.
誰にでもオススメできるB&Bです。
静かな住宅地にあり、とても可愛らしい宿です。
部屋は大きくありませんが、白とブルーを基調として、地中海の雰囲気を味わえます。
オーナーのフランコおじさんはとっても親切な人で、要望があればなんでも応えてくれます。
行きは港に着いたときに電話すれば迎えに来てもらえます〜ちょうど前のお客さんをホテルに案内してたみたいで、港で少し待ったが、そんなことも忘れてしまうくらいステキな宿でした。
ちなみに、フランコおじさんが勧めてくれたレストランはすっごく美味しかったので、時間ある方は是非行ったほうがいいです。レストランの方が送迎してくれます。
今回は残念ながら青い洞窟を見れなかったが、この宿から青い洞窟のボート乗り場まで歩いていけるみたいです。

The owner has worked in the hotel/hospitality industry his entire life, and takes great pride in showing Anacapri, his garden and his very warm & accommodating B&B residence. He most conveniently picks up & drops off all guests at the marina.
