Villa Buzz: Historic Home to Reopen on Capri in May

Looking for a real retreat on Capri? This hideaway sounds to-die-for: Beginning May 1, the secluded, seven-room, 19th-century Villa Le Scale will reopen refreshed and rejuvenated for its ninth season.

Each of the historic home’s seven rooms is individually decorated, each style taking its theme from the centerpiece artwork. Guests checking into the Artist’s Room will find a Marchigana Era bookcase in the bedroom and two 18th-century marble basins in the bathroom. The Venetian Room is dominated by a 18th-century bookcase that frames the entrance to the boudoir, while the Louis XV1 Room comes with  boiserie panels and a terrace overlooking a cetrella garden.

The villa offers such perks as private dining (indoors and outdoors, never more than 14 guests at each meal), room service, turndown service, 24/7 concierge service, an eight-station gym with the latest gear, and a fully stocked wine cellar. Nice Touch: The heated swimming pool is ringed with fountains, stone grottoes, a sun terrace and plenty of foliage and flowers to create an air of seclusion and privacy.
