We have stayed at La Scarpetta twice - once in the fall, once in the winter - and will DEFINITELY return. The town is just wonderful ... and this charming little B&B is, too. The owner is so friendly, you'll think you are staying with family.

My husband and I were very pleased with the beauty, cleanliness, hospitality, service, room size, breakfast......everything about this unique bed and breakfast!

There were two large windows in our room that... More
