Click here for the best places to stay in Capri

The name alone conjures up the scent of lemon trees, the flavour of ripe, red tomatoes scattered with basil and the chatter in the piazzetta as the town turns out for their evening stroll or ‘passeggiata’. The best places to stay in Capri are usually in the luxury bracket, but we have managed to find a few hidden gems that won't cost you an arm and a leg.

For those on a restricted budget try Hotel La Canasta, an immaculate, stylish B&B with swimming pool or perhaps the nineteen room Villa Sarah - a modest but charming property in a peaceful hilltop setting. Or if you've decided that self catering is the best option, then check out the selection with our online partner,

Whilst the size of this rocky island which rises from the blue waters of the Mediterranean is small, Capri’s fame is large; its charms captured by writers, poets and artists from Turgenev to Graham Greene, who all found its wild beauty so inspiring.

Its reputation for glamour developed over the last century as the rich, the aristocracy and good-looking film stars came calling in their yachts, frequenting the boutiques, wearing Capri pants or sipping limoncellos in the Italian sunshine.

Despite its popularity, lemon trees still scent the island; the town’s cobbled streets are still too narrow for cars and plump, homemade Ravioli Caprese is still a dish worth crossing the water for.

Location is important here, for moving around the island is often on foot, so choose carefully amongst the best places to stay in Capri if you want to be in the heart of the town, in the more peaceful outskirts, down by the harbour, in the more rural Anacapri or hanging on the edge of the cliffs.

Just don't forget that this island is heaving during the peak summer months, so get organised and book well ahead if you want to guarantee a room in one of the best places to stay in Capri.

Best places to stay in Capri

For glamour

  • If you're looking for a hotel to match the glitz then check into the Capri Palace Hotel and Spa. Here you'll find the only Michelin starred food on the island and original artwork on the walls. Book a suite and get your own private pool.

Location Location Location

  • For townies we'd suggest the Tiberio Palace in the heart of Capri Town. The decor is contemporary and stylish, but the pièce de résistance is the Spa (set on two floors with indoor and outdoor pools).
  • If you prefer being on the outskirts, then Hotel La Vega is your best bet. This excellent pensione boasts spacious rooms whose balconies have views to die for. A lovely pool area ensures you don't have to traipse down the hill to find a beach.
  • Down by the harbour book a room at JK Place if your pockets are deep enough. This divine five star establishment is just steps from the sea and oozes style and opulence.
  • For cliff top dramatics Punta Tragara is the place. The situation is stunning with breathtaking views. Inside the vibe is calm and luxurious and superb food is served on candlelit verandas.

For a holiday aparment

  • For a hoilday villa or apartment on the island, we recommend you check out the selection with our online partner,
