Fifteen minutes' walk from Capri's Piazzetta. It's not easy to find as it's not marked on Capri's map but if you come into the port, take the funicular up to Capri's Piazzetta, head straight into the tourist office on the nearest corner of the Piazzetta, and get them to mark it on your map.
Three rooms are available – a single, double and a triple – and all are bright and clean, and simply furnished with tiled floors. The double and triple are a really good size (one has its own huge terrace, the other rooms share a balcony), but the single is only around twelve metres square so can feel a bit cramped (but that's reflected in the price). All overlook the main road to Anacapri (as well as the Bay of Naples beyond) and so can be noisy (bring earplugs just in case). Bathrooms are small with a shower and no bath. Rooms are cleaned each day.
A huge flower-filled terrace with fabulous views over the Bay and Capri itself is available for the use of all guests.
Eating and drinking
Breakfasts are lovely: on the terrace you can enjoy the usual pastries and coffee as well as Tony's own fresh figs (when in season), orange juice, even an omelette, if you like.
It certainly helps that Tony was once a tour guide – he can help with tips on where to eat, what to visit, even what beaches to go to.
Who stays there
Families and couples looking for a bit of peace and quiet, but close enough to walk to the centre of things.
The b&b is closed throughout November and December. Also, worth noting, is that this is a 'cash only' establishment – no credit cards accepted.
