Shrouded in stillness, with encompassing views of the capital a comfortable distance away. Villa Discopoli is a tucked away jewel in the crown of Capri. Privately reserved and opening its doors to the public for the very first time. The villa, with its individual architectural style, represents a unique story and has housed prominent figures such as Austrian novelist and poet Rainer Maria Rilke. Today, it summons tales spanning across the 20th Century and incites original splendour that beckons an immediate sense of connected and intentional living. Basking in the Mediterranean sun, sits an elaborate antique marble patio and terrace. While the elegant interiors, adorned in exquisite floral and Putti frescoes by renowned artists put on a theatrical performance across the walls and ceilings.
