About this listing
The Pavillon d’Annie Cottrau was built in the ‘20s of the last century. It is surrounded by a fair size garden with sights of Capri’s village, of the Phoenician rock ladder. The ensemble is completed by an accessible rooftop with a view of Ischia
The Pavillon d’Annie Cottrau bears all typical elements of Capri’s architectural language (suggestive vaulted arches, a series of small arches and mullioned windows, Mediterranean colours…). Its modern style is elegant and deprived of ornate frills. The even distribution of volumes and the organic correlation of the structure with its natural surroundings define this charming and panoramic pavilion that always enthralled intellectuals and artists. The villa affords to its guests a timeless and peaceful respite. The house description is as follows:
The entrance on a large living room with fireplace,
Five bedrooms, four of which are double-bedded, four full bathrooms and a kitchen.
The master bedroom and the “mosaic” room have a bathroom en suite.
Guests of the “geckos” room, (at times unavailable for rental), may avail themselves of the third bathroom which is also at the disposal of outside guests as it opens on to a small corridor leading to the living room.
The suite consists of two bedrooms, one double bed room opening onto a two twin bed room attached to the fourth bathroom. This twin bedroom may be also used as a den.
Bathrooms have all been renovated with either a tub or a shower.
The pleasant walk from Capri’s centre (la piazzetta) to the villa takes approximately one quarter of an hour on a gentle slope (via Sopramonte) or through a slightly steeper one through Via delle Botteghe and Via Croce up to Via Matermania and Via Dentecala. The access to the house is only on foot as Capri’s pathways are almost entirely and exclusively reserved to pedestrians. A baggage service is however available from the boat gangway all the way to one’s doorstep.
The guests can use all the villa whit garden and rooftop, except the fifth bedroom (the room of the “geckos) that will stay close.
Other things to note
A short history of the house:
the construction dates of the end of the ’20 (designed by the proto-rationalist architect Céas) was built as the atelier of the sculptress Anna Fokker, daughter of the well-known war-plane industrialist Antony Fokker, and wife of the baron Mario Cottrau. After her, as of the early ‘70s, the present owners have cared and preserved the architectural style of the construction making it into a comfortable home without altering its cultural identity. During the ‘70s the gallerist Lucio Amelio sojourned in the Pavilion d’Annie with his more important guests such as Joseph Beuyes, a principal member of the Conceptual Art movement, and Andy Warhol undisputed leader of the Pop Art. Today the Pavilion is the lieu of encounters for International Psychoanalysis meetings.
Animals however are welcome to stay home. On previous mutual agreement, it is possible to provide a cleaning service.
