Villa Dorica, designed by the famous architect Edwin Cerio, dates back to the beginning of the twentieth century. Cerio was a versatile character, most known for designing some of Capri’s most famous homes, but also served as the island’s mayor for 3 years.
The ground floor spreads out over an internal surface of approx. 280 square meters. Thanks to the original five meter high ceilings, a mezzanine floor has been created over a portion of the ground floor. The spaces are composed of a large entrance and living area of 120 square meters with elegant columns and two large bedrooms, each with its own bathroom and each of them has two double sofa beds. These rooms boast a stunning view over the island, thanks to their large panoramic windows.
A third double bedroom with en-suite bath also lies on the ground floor.
The external areas offer two symmetrical spaces from which guests enjoy wonderful views and an external Jacuzzi surrounded by gazebos and original bougainvillea.
The first floor is accessible through an independent entrance. The interior recalls the essence of Capri as the vaulted ceilings and original tiles remain intact as well as original furniture to offer guests a real essence of the island. This level spreads out over an internal surface of approximately 200 square meters and the area is divided into an entrance, sitting room, dining area, three double bedrooms, one single bedroom, and a fully equipped kitchen with dining area, as well as a large pantry, four bathrooms, and walk-in cupboard. One of the main attractions is the wonderful 115 square meter terrace from where you can enjoy a marvelous view out over the Bay of Marina Piccola and the town of Capri.
Villa Dorica also enjoys a basement level used for accommodation of staff members. The caretaker and the gardener are residents in a separate unit; this floor also houses the laundry facilities.
The villa does not have a pool, but enjoys an external Jacuzzi.
