The exterior of La Scalinatella in Capri, Italy


La Scalinatella

La Scalinatella means "little stairway," and as far as we're concerned, this charming property is a stairway to heaven. Sitting atop a hill in one of the most picturesque settings on Capri, this pristine white boutique hotel has romantic flair. It offers 30 spacious, light-infused rooms decorated with hand-painted Majolica floor tiles, tasteful antiques and terraces overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. The two beautiful pools highlight settings as timeless and fashionable as Sophia Loren circa "It Started in Naples," which was filmed on the island. Their surrounding decks also provide the venue for complimentary continental breakfast — we can think of no more enjoyable way to greet the day.
