Concierge.com's insider take:
One of Capri's best budget options, family-run Villa Sarah stands at the beginning of the lane that leads up to Villa Jovis. It's a bit of a trek from the Piazzetta, but the reward is a semirural retreat set among olive and citrus trees, that has a real insiders' cachet. The 20 simply appointed rooms in the pale-apricot villa would win no design prizes, but they're spacious, airy, and pleasant, with Vietri-tiled floors, cast-iron chandelier lamps, and grandmotherly furnishings. Four have terraces with views over the garden and the small pool—which is a welcome recent addition. Breakfasts center on homemade products, many of them using fruits and vegetables from the hotel's organic kitchen garden.
Open from Easter through October.
