The spectacle of the Faraglioni. The charm of Marina Piccola. The contours of the Amalfi Coast. And all the blue and white beauty of Capri as far as the eye can see. This is the panorama unfolding before you the terrace at Punta Tragara: an exclusive period residence overlooking the sea designed by the legendary Le Corbusier, who envisioned it as a magical place “to heal your body, your soul and your mind”.
Punta Tragara and Le Corbusier
Nestled in an enchanted corner of the island, where the buzz of the Piazzetta surrenders to nature’s quiet beauty, it is almost as if the villa rises from the rock itself like “an architectural blossom”: these are the words Le Corbusier used to describe the icon of modernist architecture, which he created in 1920 for Lombard engineer Emilio Errico Vismara on the spectacular Punta Tragara promontory.
With architecture so original and yet so in tune with its natural surroundings, Villa Vismara quickly became one of the island’s most admired homes. It witnessed history in the making during World War II, when the villa became a satellite headquarters for America’s central command and hosted such luminaries as General Dwight D. Eisenhower and Sir Winston Churchill. In 1968, Count Goffredo Manfredi purchased this property as his home away from home on Capri. These were the Dolce Vita days, when the international jet set flocked to the island to live it up in the lap of in luxury. Count Manfredi was so taken with the unique beauty of this place that he decided to share it with a few fortunate guests. The villa was rebranded as the Punta Tragara Hotel in 1973, and almost immediately became the new gold standard in hospitality and service.
Just steps from the legendary Piazzetta, surrounded by lush landscapes and tranquil silence, the villa guarantees complete privacy combined with the aesthetic pleasure of great design and all the trademark colors and scents of the Med. Painstaking renovations have introduced innovative solutions into the existing architecture that provide the comforts today’s guest demand amidst timeless natural beauty. History echoes in the colors, the linens and the mosaics of this contemporary, eclectic interior design, in its traditional ceramics and Mediterranean motifs.
A place where impeccable hospitality and nature’s splendor meet, like the blue of the sky and the sea on the horizon. In such sophisticated surroundings, where an ancient, almost primeval calm pervades, you feel as if this island has always been your home. An island that has, since time immemorial, captivated visitors from all over the world with the Grande Bellezza only Italy can offer.
