Villa Rubino is a property to rent full of charm, projected and owned at the early 50s by the Princess Clara de’ Martinis d’Aragona, one of the ancient families linked to Neapolitan events of the 17th century.
The villa was the personal retreat of Princess Clara, where she often used to host her intellectual and aristocratic friends. The actual owners of the villa are descendants of the same family, and they have recently restructured it with excellent taste and care.
The property enjoys a privileged position on the celebrated island of Capri, in a delightful and reserved location near the famous Blue Grotto. Well connected both to the key points of the island, and to the famous “Piazzetta”, that offers elegant restaurants, famous night clubs and glamorous shops.
