Just a handful of rooms, a lovingly-tended garden and the heartfelt-hospitality typical of the islanders of Capri. If you're looking for a hotel which looks and feels just like your very own island home, you'll love Il Merlo, a gorgeous little B&B in the blissfully peaceful, picture-perfect town of Anacapri.
Spacious and spotlessly clean, Il Merlo's simply furnished bedrooms feature Capri's traditional ceramic floor tiles and are equipped with television and mini bar.
On summer mornings, breakfast is served al fresco on the terrace in the garden. During the day, the same terrace provides the perfect spot in which to soak up the sun, with a good book - or a glass of good wine!
Warm, welcoming and wonderfully affordable, Il Merlo is the perfect choice for both a spur of the moment, weekend away or a full fortnight-long holiday on the island of Capri
Located in one of the quietest parts of Anacapri, the bed and breakfast lies within easy strolling distance of the historic center and all of the town's shops, restaurants and tourist attractions.
Want to mingle amidst the pop singers, movie stars and paparazzi in Capri's Piazzetta? The island's celebrity-packed square is just a short and incredibly scenic bus ride away!
Something different? Rent a scooter and explore the island in total freedom! (when you're not whizzing along the island's narrow lanes, you can leave your bike in the B&B's car park).
Anacapri's B&B Il Merlo is open all year round: making it the perfect choice not only for a summer holiday, but for a spring break, autumn escape or winter getaway too!

Anacapri's pretty historic center is a pleasant 15 minute walk away from the B&B. Blissfully traffic free, the lanes of the historic center are lined with fascinating little shops, artists' studios, pavement cafes and restaurants.
Major tourist attractions include the Church of San Michele, famous for its majolica pavement depicting the Expulsion of Adam and Eve; the Casa Rossa museum, where the Ancient Roman statues found in the Grotta Azzurra are housed; and the Villa Axel Munthe museum, the celebrated Swedish writer's dream home. Close to Piazza Vittoria, a chairlift transports visitors to the summit of Monte Solaro, the highest point of the island of Capri.
From the bus stop just outside the B&B, guests can catch buses to the center of Anacapri, the Damecuta archeological park, and the Grotta Azzurra.
