My boyfriend and I just stayed at Il Giardino dell'Arte and had the most magical time. Franco, the owner, and his whole family, went out of their way to make us feel at home. After spending 40+ years working for a luxury hotel in Anacapri, Franco has the island wired and is happy to share his knowledge. Also, his English is impeccable for those who don't speak Italian. Each morning, Rafaella or Aurelia served us the most sumptuous breakfast in their lovely garden where we could peer at the sea in the distance. Great start to any morning. Then Franco would help us set off on adventures. We didn't rent a scooter and did most on foot or bus which was no problem. Anacapri is a special little gem where families congregate and enjoy the summer together. It's more laid back than Capri and offers a kicked back kind of fun. Very relaxing with lots of good hikes. While the B&B doesn't have a pool, Franco was able to make suggestions on where to swim. With such a gorgeous sea all around, that wasn't hard. We really enjoyed swimming at the lighthouse (il Farro) and then showered and changed there for dinner to watch the most magnificent setting sun. Il Giardino was truly the highlight of our trip and we left feeling so warmly about Franco and his entire family! We hope to return soon. As another hotelier said in Capri, "Franco? Sure, everyone knows Franco. He's part of the earth of the island." Vero. I encourage you to visit. PS. There's cable, wifi, minibar, etc.
