History & Background:
Built in the seventeen-hundreds, Villa Douglas is one of Capri’s largest private properties. It’s feel and aesthetics are the product of the great characters who have inhabited it over time. In the first half of the 1900s, the villa was in fact home to British author Norman Douglas, whom decided to shape his Capri home as an oasis for the spirit. During his stay, Douglas contributed greatly to the beauty and aura of the estate by planting several hundred oaks, olive trees, elms, cypresses and mediterranean pines. After Douglas came the Scottish writer Sir Compton Mackenzie, whom in turn sold the villa to an Italian noble family. In the 1960s, the residence, or better, its pinewood, was spotted by the current owners, whom were instantly taken aback by the natural spectacle as they were sailing around the island. In the 1980s, the property was enriched which a stunning swimming pool that rests close to the cliff’s fall, and overlooks both the sea and the gulf of Naples. Adjacent to the swimming pool is a pool house equipped with a fridge, a large bathroom, a spacious changing room, a shower room and storage room. The swimming pool is hollowed in natural rocks and is surrounded by deck chairs with padded cushions, two large marble tables for dining, and hammocks, hidden at the far end of the pool.
The Villa, the largest of the three found on the estate, is comprised of 5 bedrooms that can host up to 11 people. Additionally, 2 further guests can be accommodated in the nearby depandance. The other two villas on the property are not available to rent. Aside from the bedrooms, the house is composed of a very large living room, a spacious dining room, kitchen and 4 large bathrooms (3 of which are en-suite). All of the bathrooms are equipped with two wash basins, a shower and a bathtub. There is also a staff room with its own ensuite bathroom. The majority of the building is surrounded by terraces, for the house is meant to be enjoyed both indoors and outdoors. Overlooking the majestic garden and scattered around the perimeter of the house are 3 dining tables, teak chaises longue, benches and arm chairs with coffee tables. During the summer, the swimming pool, that offers a unique panorama, is available for guests. The property is a 15/20 minutes walk from the “Piazzetta,” on the way to Villa Jovis.Get the full listing »
