Villa Il Rubino was originally constructed at the end of the 18th century by a well-known family of Capri. The villa is situated along a walking path overlooking Certosa di San Giacomo and Marina Piccola, with views of the entire town of Capri and Monte Solaro. After more than 200 years, the villa is still currently owned by descendants of the original family who recently completed a large-scale renovation in 2010.

The chic indoor dining room is ideal for an afternoon tea or aperitif. The beautiful crystal chandelier hung above the dining table creates an elegant and intimate atmosphere.
The game room is equipped with a swivel-top game table. The television room boasts a large flat screen television, an amplifier with iPod hook-up and a movie and music library.
