Sea View. And already you would feel satisfied, especially because the sea in question is that of Capri and the eyes immediately meets the famous Faraglioni. And yet the hotel Punta Tragara remains an indelible souvenir in the memory of those who stay there not only for its incredible location but for all that beautiful, elegant and even “good” offers its guests. Located just 10 minutes from the famous and lively Piazzetta caprese, this ancient villa – whose preliminary design is attributed to Le Corbusier – was originally the summer residence of the Marquis Vismara, who sold it at the beginning of the ’50s to Count Manfredi.

Or even “Penthouse”, where architecture sometimes gradually introduces to the large terrace and where the large bathroom with sauna and oval carved tub in Corian becomes the ideal place to relax.
