"The staff is friendly, courteous and eager to do their job well. "
Up until 2010, when the building was completely restored and transformed into a guest house, Anacapri's Villa Ceselle was a much loved family home, set in pretty gardens overlooking the sea.
Continuing to offer the intimacy and exclusivity of an elegant private residence, Villa Ceselle conserves all its traditional architectural features, from the stone-clad entrance path to the barrel vaulted ceilings in the bedrooms.
At the same time, the careful integration of modern technology, from air conditioning to Wi-Fi, ensures maximum comfort.
The hotel's spacious, light-filled bedrooms are tastefully decorated in soothing shades of cream and oatmeal. Superior rooms have terraces overlooking the sea and the islands of the Bay of Naples.

Guests staying at Hotel Villa Ceselle start the day with a leisurely breakfast, served in the sunny breakfast room, before heading off to explore the historic center of Anacapri or the beautiful beaches close to the Grotta Azzurra and the lighthouse.
The hotel is owned by the Maresca family, proprietors of the Da Gelsomina restaurant, one of the islands most-loved eateries, which is located within steps of the breathtakingly beautiful Migliera viewing point.
Hotel guests can reach Da Gelsomina, which also has a panoramic swimming pool and snack bar, by Villa Ceselle's complimentary shuttle bus.

Hotel Villa Ceselle is located in Anacapri, the picturesque little town resting at the foot of the Island of Capri's Monte Solaro. The hotel sits right at the start of the road which, from Anacapri, leads to the legendary Grotta Azzurra.
Within meters of the hotel, there is a bus stop from where to catch buses to the lighthouse of Punta Carena, the town of Capri and the port. Anacapri's historic center, famous for its Villa San Michele, the Monte Solaro chairlift, the Church of San Michele, and the Casa Rossa Museum, is just a pleasant, five minute walk away.
