About your event co-host, pia gava

Pia Gava is a chef and author of cookbook Pia’s Table, which celebrates history, tradition, food and family. She was also a contestant on season 9 of Masterchef Australia. 

Food was an important part of Pia’s Italian upbringing living in Australia. Her favourite memory as a little girl was sitting on her kitchen step, watching her mother so effortlessly create delicious pasta dishes.

Pia loves to share her passion for cooking with others. She’s taught sold-out cooking classes and workshops, hosted and created menus for numerous dining events and food festivals, and collaborated with brands like Royal Caribbean (with Flight Centre), Fondazione EVOO School (together with the Italian Chamber of Commerce Melbourne) and Vita Italian Tours.

Don’t miss this special opportunity to learn to cook with Pia Gava in Capri!

The villa is nestled in a quiet neighbourhood of picturesque Anacapri, a short 10-15 minute walk from the historic town centre and a 1 minute walk to our garden villa. The closest bus stop is a 2 minute walk and buses run regularly along the Blue Grotto bus line between the villa and the historic town centre.

A regular bus timetable also operates between the Anacapri historic town centre and the Capri historic town centre.

There is also taxi/private vehicle/scooter access to the villa.

Anacapri is located on the higher part of the island above Capri and is home to some of the most significant sites on the island including the mesmerising Blue Grotto, the Monte Solaro chairlift, Villa San Michele and the Lighthouse.

Room prices/packages are based on double occupancy in matrimonial beds and cannot be separated for twin bed occupancy. Package inclusions can be reduced for single occupancy, although the room price will remain the same.

Yes they do, subject to rough seas. Ferries to Capri operate from Naples or Sorrento.

There are 2 ports in Naples, Molo Beverello where the high-speed ferries depart (50 mins to Capri) and Calata Porta di Massa where the slow ferries (car ferries) depart (1-1.25 hours to Capri).

When the sea is rough and/or there are strong winds, the slow ferries are more likely to run than the high speed ferries.  It’s rare but during very rough weather, the ferries may be cancelled and few or no ferries may depart or arrive on the island.

Travelling from Sorrento is a shorter trip (20 mins fast ferry or 30 minutes slow ferry). For those who are not good sea fearers, we recommend taking the shorter ride from Sorrento and on the slower ferries.

We have a range of activities to keep the curious traveller entertained. You can choose from a diverse selection of organised activities or simply enjoy the communal areas of the villa while enjoying aperitivo, local wine and playing Capri Monopoly or Tombola.

The villa has a library of English books for guests to read and we can also hold cooking classes, food experiences and other activities in the communal areas of the villa or (weather permitting) in our covered outdoor kitchen in our villa garden.

Activities cancelled due to weather will be fully refunded.

Bring warm clothes and layers including jackets and scarfs. While there may be some beautiful sunny winter days, the evenings are always cooler and in Anacapri, there is more humidity.

We will refund the daily accommodation rate should there be not one ferry service running from either Naples or Sorrento. That is, we will refund only the night affected by the lack of ferry service.

You can view expected weather forecasts here

Weather is becoming more unpredictable. There may be days the island experiences storms, rain and wind (but this is possible all year round).

No matter the weather, we can adjust activities to ensure you have a great time.

The island has a very different vibe during the low season. It is more relaxed, more communal and in many ways has a more creative energy. We dine and go to bed earlier to take advantage of the shorter days. We enjoy spectacular sunrises at 7.30am and sunsets at 4.30pm.

Dinner reservations open earlier and kitchens/bars close earlier but there is always something to do.

A winter visit is not for everyone. We recommend following our Instagram and watching our previous Christmas highlights, along with listening to our Podcast – Christmas in Capri.
