East meets West: a unique historic villa with private garden overlooking the sea with its crenellated tower, colorful majolica tiles, and pointed arches, Villa Helios is one of the most striking fin de siécle villas on Capri. A eclectic mix of moorish and Art Nouveau architecture, a luxurious Mediterranean garden overlooking the sea, and a serene location in a pedestrian-only corner of the island make this former aristocratic residence the perfect home for a delightful boutique hotel.
With just over 20 rooms, Villa Helios offers the perfect balance of luxurious comfort and personalized service.
