Hidden in the ancient part of Scalea, a beautiful little town in southern Italy, there's the B&B Lavinium, where I had a great experience. You have to walk a lot of stairs to reach it, but once you're there it's all worth it: it's basically a nice warm house, with four rooms each one different from the others, all personalized... More

With an excellent view in the old charming part of scalea, this b&b is situated. Just in the center of scalea and 2 minutes walk from the beach. This is a cosy B&B, very intimate where the manager, Antonio, give you a hand with all matters that can arise. A very good breakfast is served in the mornings. Clean and... More

Stayed here in June and enjoyed the Italian setting. Little English spoken here, and people are so friendly. They know how to greet and serve. Antonio was so helpful, and spoke some English and made the wonderful Italian breakfast of capuccino and homemade cornetta(croissant) and Italian sfogliatella pastry. The view from the room was the sweeping vista of the sea... More

Everything is within easy walking distance (restaurants, shops, beach). And,... More

My parents, my sisters, my brother and me went to Scalea to learn more about our heritage and to see where my father's family came from. Antonio made us feel like family, the apartments he rented to us were comfortable, spacious and very clean. We developed a great friendship with Antonio and still keep in contact! He gave us a...

Antonio was very nice and picked us up from the train station. I must thank him for carrying my wife's luggage up all the stairs. It is located in the old town with many twisting stairways. If he asks you the short hard way or the long easy way, tough it out and take the short way...much shorter. The house... More
