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.

That first year, not knowing family -- or if we still had any family there -- we booked at La Scarpetta on the strength of its Web site.... More

My husband and I were very pleased with the beauty, cleanliness, hospitality, service, room size, breakfast......everything about this unique bed and breakfast! When we return to Barrea for another visit, we will most certainly stay at La Scarpetta di Venere again. The room was sparkling clean, with beautiful and comfortable decorations. There were two large windows in our room that... More
