Housed in a creamy white Belle Époque villa, the Excelsior Parco is halfway up the road from Marina Grande to Capri Town. The ground-floor reception, breakfast room, and lounge areas are bright and elegant, with Art Nouveau detailing and sculptures from the owner's art collection, while the 13 rooms are sunny and welcoming, making the most of the generous Capri sunlight with their white walls, yellow or cream textiles, and bathrooms done out in jaunty local majolica tiles. There's a garden surrounding the property that features a six-person outdoor whirlpool tub surrounded by lemon trees. Service is extremely affable, breakfast is made from organic produce, with cakes from a reputable pasticceria in Marina Grande, and the Wi-Fi is free. A rooftop solarium was added for the 2011 season.—Lee Marshall
