I can't rave about this property, or its owners, enough. I contacted them at the last minute, literally, and they made it so easy to put this trip together. I have been yearning to come to La Chimera for years and truly, it was everything I had hoped. I was traveling by myself and yet they made me feel as welcome as if I had brought a whole family with me! The pool is gorgeous and no fighting hordes of tourists for a chair. The view is stunning and peaceful. It is truly difficult to pry yourself away to go to dinner! Taking the little bus is easy and more affordable than the taxis, and Candace explains the process really well. I really enjoyed Anacapri more than the more crowded Capri town, but that is just my opinion- the whole island is superb and it would be hard to go wrong. But if you want peace, splendor, elegance and a taste of the villa life, La Chimera is for you.
We had a wonderfully relaxing break staying in the pool-side apartment at La Pergola. It's a fantastic location on the west side of Capri where you get sunset views across the Mediterranean Sea. The pool is perfect and in a sunshiney spot. There are sun-loungers by the pool, but the apartment also has its own terrace where you can relax with a glass of vino after taking a dip. The apartment is small but perfectly formed - it's a studio flat with a little kitchen that has all the cooking and dining equipment you might need. The shower room has a door straight onto the terrace (as well as into the studio) and this is very handy for going to or from the pool.
We found Candace and Peppino very welcoming and they gave us all the information we needed for getting round the island, as well as a range of restaurant recommendations. The apartment is located about a 15 minute walk from the centre of Anacapri, on the road that leads down to the Blue Grotto. The bus service is very good on Capri and we found it easy to get to all the places we wanted to visit.
All in all we had a fantastic time out on the island and just wish we'd been able to stay longer!

We stayed at La Chimera (La Pergola) for two weeks. The apartment is situated in a beautiful steep garden with a divine view over the coastline and the Tyrrhenian Sea.
Our hosts, Candace and Peppino, are extremely kind and helpful and discreet at the same time.
The pool is always clean and inviting.
The location is a very good starting point for tracking or visiting cultural places (bus near by).
As the neighbourhood is nice and quiet, your stay can be very pleasant and relaxed.
We should like to visit La Chimera another time.

We had a wonderful week in Anacapri on the end of October 2012. The weather was still warm and sunny, sunsets so gorgeous viewing from the terrace. There are many natural paths to walk and wander very near and the landscape is charming. La Pergola is like a paradise! It isn’t big but there is everything you need and even better it was a still and a quiet place surrounded by the green well cared garden. Candace and Peppino were very kind and their hospitality was excellent. Thank you both and we hope to come back some day!
Candace and Pepino are charming and welcoming hosts who genuinely want to make your holiday memorable. Their two apartments are located in the grounds of their lovely home situated in a peaceful spot close to the delightful village of Anacapri. Only a 25 minute walk along an off road path with panoramic views over the Golfo Di Napoli towards Ischia is Anacapri (il Cucciolo restaurant along the way) or for the less energetic a ten minute and 1.8€ bus ride away - the stop being 50m from the apartment. After a pleasant walk around Anacapri or another short bus ride down to the bustling Capri town to people watch the rich, chic and often famous people who visit Capri, to return to the quieter haven of La Pergola apartment followed by a dip and relaxation by the quiet and beautifully positioned pool, spotlessly maintained by Pepino and located just a few steps away, was sheer bliss. Later in the evening to prepare a simple Italian meal using fresh ingredients from the market in Anacapri or picked from Candace's garden (she is delighted for you to do this) and then watch the sun set behind Ischia whilst sipping ice-cold limoncello on the lovely terrace in front of the apartment was a highlight of our holiday. Most visitors first come to Capri on day trips (us included) and venture no further than Capril Town (which is great to experience) and then wonder what this beautifull island would be like after the day trippers have returned to Naples or Sorrento. Do yourselves a big favour and find out with a holiday based in Anacapri, which is on another planet and far less expensive than you think but also base yourself at these apartments, where you will receive a warm welcome and a holiday you will not forget. Julie and I will certainly return!
My husband, our small dog and I spent a beautiful week on this property. The terrace, pool and hosts made this a wonderful choice.The inside accomodation was small, which we knew, but the terrace with it's unobstructed incredible view is where we spent our time, when we were not at the pool or walking & sightseeing.Frequently we were the only guests at the pool. At times the lovely couple, renting the other cottage,"shared"it with us.The neighborhood is residential with convenient nearby bus service.Our hosts could not have been nicer. They recommended & reserved restaurants, supplied info on walks, sights, etc.Our 1st evening's dinner at Il Faro was our most memorable, recommended by Candace, who reserved for us. It was outstanding, especially for my husband's birthday.We drove to the property, where our hosts kindly let us leave the car for the week.You don't want to drive much on Capri.Each morning we walked into Anacapri and took buses for outings.Excellent bus service, except outside of July & August,they stop running before 11 pm, which can be a problem returning from dinner.Taxis are very expensive. We hope to return in the near future.
