How’s this for a newlyweds’ first day on the Isle of Capri?
Morning in bed admiring museum-caliber 19th-century artworks. Breakfast on a private patio festooned with perfumed flowers. Tanning beside an azure pool ringed with splashing fountains and stone grottos. Lunch alfresco beneath a jasmine-draped pergola. Post-siesta stroll into town for some shopping. Candlelight dinner in a local trattoria topped off by moonlight nightcaps on a garden terrace overlooking the Gulf of Naples.
After six months of renovations, the 19th-century “Villa of the Steps” will reopen on May 1, more seductive than ever. Each of the inn’s seven rooms is individually decorated, each style taking its theme from the centerpiece artwork of museum quality–a fabulous Marchigana Era bookcase. A pair of 18th-century marble basins or a glorious 18th-century bookcase. But there’s nothing old-
fashioned about these rooms and suites: they all come with i-Pod docks, flat-screen satellite TV, surround sound and high-speed wireless access, as well as air conditioning, personal safes and minibars.
While only seven rooms, Villa Le Scale lays on a surprising array of services: room service on private terraces, turndown service, 24/7 concierge service, 8-station gym with the latest gear, a fully stocked wine cellar and private dining (breakfast and lunch only, indoors and outdoors, never more than 14 guests,).
Situated high in the hills, on the outskirts of Anacapri, the Villa is just a short walk from the town’s main attractions. The new 4-night Honeymoon Package, valid through Spring and Summer from 3,150 Euro to 4,250 Euros, depending on the room or suite you choose features:
* 4 nights in a unique, art-filled double room or suite
* Daily a la carte, prepared to order breakfast served on your terrace or in the garden or in the dining room
* Arrival or departure transfers from or to Naples airport or Naples train station by private chauffeur-driven car and public hydrofoil

* Three-course lunch for two, whichever day suits you, served on your private patio, in the garden or in the art-filled dining room (beverages not included)
* One half-day excursion by private high speed motor boat around the Isle of Capri, down the bewitching Amalfi Coast to Positano and back – including transfers from
