Concierge.com's insider take:
Anacapri finally has a decent mid-price alternative to luxe perches like the Capri Palace, the Caesar Augustus, and Villa Le Scale. Casa Mariantonia's position is hardly spectacular—it's on the main pedestrianized shopping street, just across from La Rondinella restaurant—but for those open to the more rural feel of Capri's second town, it makes for a good base. The decor is a persuasive mix of Provençal and Caprese, with pretty ironwork bedsteads, bijou lamps, and a choice of Vietri floor and bathroom tiles that is a cut above the usual blue-and-yellow standard. All nine bedrooms have generous terraces with garden views; five (three classic doubles and two suites) look onto an ancient grove of orange and lemon trees to the side of the house. Free Wi-Fi (though it doesn't reach all rooms) and a plentiful continental breakfast are included in the rates. The owner's grandmother was one of the first people on Capri to make limoncello in any great quantity, and the family still owns the original Limoncello di Capri outlet down in Capri Town.
Closed November through March.
