CAPRISUITE guest house

In the heart of the ancient village of Anacapri “above Capri”, the CAPRISUITE is an exclusive cocoon for refined aesthetes. The locals say Anacapri is “what Capri used to be like, many many years ago”. Giuliano Andrea dell’Uva, a young architect from Napoli, designed this hideaway in the remains of a 16th century convent, beside the San Michele church. Two simple rooms, designed in hues of yellow and blue, in tribute to the sun and the Mediterranean sea. There, you’ll be living alongside designer furniture, modern art and luxury (look at the bathrooms!).

Another amazing thing to know about CAPRISUITE: the architect designed a lot of the furniture himself, like the credenza above, and they are available for purchase in the CAPRISUITE shop ! How cool is that? Most of the tableware, like dishes, coffee cups, pitchers and jugs, are also available.

And the tour continues at the two bedrooms.

The blue room, with a basin-bath in front of the window and along the wall a metal mantle fireplace.

Arrange the bathroom in these cramped walls was nearly  impossible.  It only took a wide swing door opened to the bedroom, a sink placed at the window and horizontal striped fabric Livio de Simone protected by plastic to give the illusion of space. Gray resin on the floor, as in other parts of the house.
