Fodor's Expert Review Punta Tragara

Via Tragara 57, Capri, Campania, 80073, Italy Fodor's Choice

Designed by Le Corbusier, this former private villa was the site of a secret wartime meeting between Churchill and Eisenhower; today, it's one of Capri's most beautiful hotels, with a breathtaking location on Punta Tragara; public areas adorned with baronial fireplaces, gilded antiques, and travertine marble; and guest rooms that are simultaneously sumptuous and cozy-casual. The dreamy garden is a showstopper, with two pools, (one jet-powered) beside the idyllic arbor-covered restaurant, Monzù.

PROS

  • decadent and luxurious
  • wonderful views of the famed Faraglioni rocks
  • two gorgeous pools

CONS

  • a 15-minute walk from the center
  • some find the style dated (others find it a plus)
  • small gym
