What to Expect:
One of the few remaining historic noble houses on the island, Villa Le Scale has been painstakingly renovated to include all modern conveniences amidst beautiful antiques that even the most demanding guest could want in a luxury villa. The fully staffed property, only steps away from the main piazza offers a superb location, a quite refuge with complete privacy but easy access to all transportation around the island. Villa Lle Scale can accommodate up to 14 guests in 7 lovingly restored en-suite guestrooms with sea and garden views. The villa can be rented exclusively or as individual rooms.

How to Get There:
Depending on your itinerary Capri is easily accessed via Naples, Sorrento, Amalfi, Postiano and the outer islands of Ischia. You can access Naples by either train, car or plane and take a taxi to the ferry docks. It should take about 3 hours from Rome.
Take your pick of hydrofoils, ferries or fast ferries that will get you to Capri in 80 minutes or less. Cost runs about 20 E per person, one way. We can also arrange private transfers 24 hours a day.
The fastest, most comfortable, and the most scenic way of getting to Capri is by helicopter. A helicopter service between Capri and Italy's main cities is run by Sam Elicotteri, and take approximately 20 minutes.
