Welcome to Hotel Villa Krupp
The Hotel Villa Krupp was built in 1900 by Eduardo Settanni. Originally it was a villa, which was subsequently altered and enlarged to become what it is today: a small family-run three star hotel.
The site of this historic villa on the south-east side of the island has panoramic views over the sea and lies tranquilly immersed in a mixture of Mediterranean and tropical vegetation, overlooking the Augustus Gardens and the famous Via Krupp, and from its rooms one has wonderful views of the sea and the fabulous Faraglioni rocks.
From the hotel strait along Via Krupp you can reach, in about 15 minutes walking, the beach of Torre Saracena and Marina Piccola.
The Via Krupp, “a work of art in the true sense of the word and a wonder of nature” (quoted in ‘Dove’ magazine, 21 July 1994) was built in less than two years by the German steel magnate, Frederick Alfred Krupp, in 1902.
The hotel is perfect for a peaceful and relaxed stay, and the courtesy, the welcome and personal attention all help to make the guest feel “at home”.
The garden-terrace and bar, where breakfast is served, is perched on a cliff-top overlooking the sea -“the view once enjoyed by Maxim Gorki when he stayed here – and now by the clients of the hotel” (quoted in the German magazine Merian - Summer 2002).
