Villa Le Scale is a charming luxury inn (with just seven rooms!) located on the breathtakingly beautiful island of Capri, Italy. Set high up in the hills of Anacapri, this 19th century restored retreat boasts not only incredible views of the isle and sea, but of an art collection that rivals most fine museums. Reopening on May 1st of this year, you could be of the first new newlyweds to visit the unique hideaway.
A perfect hideout for honeymooners, the villa is surrounded by lush gardens, a fountain-clad pool, spectacular views of the Gulf of Naples and all the privacy this type of holiday demands. And to make it easy for newlyweds, your villa hosts have launched a honeymoon menu just for two. A four night package in Spring and Summer, your stay will come complete with breakfast on your terrace, welcome drinks, champagne to celebrate, fresh flowers in your room handpicked from their garden, a three-course lunch for two, private chauffeur-driven arrival or departure transfers, and even a half-day excursion by private speed boat to get out an experience the island from its bright blue waters. Cruise down the Amalfi Coast to Positano and back for the day – just like in the movies.
Upon arrival, your hotel room will be as unique as the two of you. Each space is individually decorated with the common thread of the art (each guest quarters boasts a statement piece to enjoy). But have no fear, this 19th century inspiration comes equipped with all the modern day luxuries we just can’t seem to live without. iPod docks, flat screen TVs (though we hope they never get turned on), wireless internet, a gym and room service are all awaiting you. No need to sacrifice the finer things here!
And if you’ve just fallen madly, deeply in love with this place and want to share it with friends and family, the boutique property makes a perfect place for an intimate destination wedding celebration. A buyout of the seven rooms means you and fourteen family members can live like Italian kings together before and after the big day.
Travel Tip: Most take a boat from the Port of Naples to get to Capri, but before you shove off, consider spending an extra day at nearby Pompeii. It will be terribly hot in the summertime, but nonetheless a sight worth seeing when in that part of the world.
