Striking artwork, Le Corbusier design and jaw-dropping views make this cliff-top property a head-turner
A salmon-pink palace perched high on a cliffside overlooking the famous Faraglioni rocks, Hotel Punta Tragara is a destination in itself. Originally conceived by Le Corbusier, the design is both classic and avant-garde, and the décor walks a line between traditional European grandeur and cutting edge (a painting at the foot of the grand staircase, for instance, depicts model Jessica Stam). The public spaces make the most of the dreamy setting: The pool and La Pergola terrace, in particular, offer stunning views over the Bay of Naples and Mount Salaro, the island’s highest point. Bring your stamina: There are plenty of beautiful walking trails nearby, but the way back is steep. You’ll feel like you’ve earned that sunset aperitif.
In the Area
From the hotel, walk down pine-shaded paths to the famous Fontelina Beach, where you can arrange to be picked up by boat captain Gianni for an unforgettable circumnavigation of the island. Have him take you around the Faraglioni rocks, giant formations that rise like monoliths from the deep blue-green water, then to the famous Blue Grotto and the windswept rocky promontory towards the western tip of the island, where you can bathe away from the hordes. On return, dine at one of Capri’s most feted and romantic restaurants, Da Paolino, where tables are set beneath a grove of lemon trees strung with lanterns.
