5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

It is rare to find such a comete package of great location, welcome, perfect hospitality and facilities. Eduardo and family run an excellent B&B which is of very good value and of the highest standard. Eduardos assistance for visits and restaurants was very helpful and gave us a very successful time. The people of Scafati and Pompei are so helpfull too We would have no hesitation on highly recommending BB Fauno and will certainly return

Aften having slept at quite a few bed and breakfasts in Italy this was truly the highlight of our trip! The place is run by a family and therefore it gives the place a homely feel. We felled really welcomed when we arrived (a bit earlier than the ordinary check-in time), Eduardo quickly made two cups of coffee and served his mother's cake while introducing.

All in all the atmosphere at the Il Fauno is what we associate with B&B; homely, cozy and good breakfast (compared to Italian standards).

We spent 3 nights in Il Fauno in order to visit the Vesuvio and the archeological sites of Pompeii. We were surprised at the very good service, far better than we expected. The owners did their best to make our stay a pleasant one: they had already printed all the info material before we arrived, they welcomed us with home-made cake and juice, etc. We also enjoyed the breakfast and particularly appreciated the safe parking place.

We (family of five) stayed in B&B Fauno for three nights in May to see Pompeii and the surrounding area. We were absolutely amazed at the level of service we received every step of the way! It was by far the most organized and well-run place we've stayed in on our entire trip!!!!! Everything we could have possibly wanted to know was typed out on a pamphlet that Eduardo gave us on arrival. It had all of the main attractions like Pompeii, Herculaneum, Naples, Paestum and more listed with how to get there, how long it takes, opening hours, etc. After a short walk from the train station (down the road a few hundred meters - ten minutes walk maybe) , we were shown our room and given drinks and homemade cake! The room was spacious, very clean, and had all the amenities from hair dryer to extendable mirror that we could possibly need! We were able to cook every night in the semi-outdoor little kitchen that, while it was quite small, was well equipped with dishes, cookware, napkins, and silverware, with a small stove. Though it was a little bit too cold and rainy when we went to use it, there was a very nice looking outdoor pool that, like everything, was very clean and well run. There was also a small play area for little kids, in addition to a plastic outdoor bowling set, and other play equipment. Everything was perfect, and Eduardo was incredibly nice and helpful! The breakfast the next morning was sooooo good!!! In the small breakfast room, everything from eggs to fresh baked cake and croissants was laid out on the counter - we ate well for those three days! The cake and brownies were especially good, and so was the homemade jam. While we ate breakfast, Eduardo played a documentary on Pompeii and Herculaneum for us. With two full days (three nights), we were able to tour Pompeii (extraordinary), Naples with the archaeological museum and excavations below the church, Herculaneum, AND Paestum which while lesser known, was the highlight of it all - don't miss Paestum! The internet worked well with few problems, and though I had my own laptop, there was a public computer with internet breakfast room as well that they called the internet corner. Again, everything was so well thought out is was amazing. I could tell that a ton of care had been poured into all the planning. Eduardo drove us to the train station twice when we were in a pinch for time! While the B&B was personalized and made us feel at home, the organization was better than what you would expect in even large hotel chains. All in all, thanks to B&B Il Fauno, those three nights were definitely the highlight of our entire two month Europe trip! We couldn't have asked for more!

Room Tip: We had the apartment next to the pool. It was isolated from the rest and was very nice. Great value...

My family and I stayed at the Il Fauno B&B for one night on a quick trip to Pompeii. Had we known what a wonderful experience lay in store, we would have booked a longer stay!

It started from the moment we arrived: Eduardo greeted us with refreshments in the cabana and gave us an overview of Pompeii/the surrounding area and recommended restaurants. He patiently answered our MANY questions about rental cars, train trips, tours, etc.... When we got to the rooms it was evident that much thought and care was put in to how the rooms were stocked and set up. The multifaceted cell phone charger was awesome! The electric tea kettle, selection of teas, and apples: so lovely! Comfortable pillows and memory foam mattress made for a perfect night's rest.

Not only did we sleep well, we also ate well! The restaurant-Verace-that he recommended heartily for dinner was simply amazing. Breakfast the next day was great. Everything was fresh and delicious. My mother-in-law has celiac disease and many gluten free choices were provided.

Eduardo also went above and beyond when helping us with transfers. We were a party of five, and he insisted on driving us back and forth the ruins and train station even though it required two trips for each destination.

I could go on and on... Needless to say we will be back. And for a much longer trip!

My husband and I spent 3 nights at Fauno in February and our experience was great. Our hostess prepared lovely food for our breakfast, and even showed us videos of the places we planned to visit that day. We appreciated the personal touches.

Il Fauno B&B, Scafati far outweighed our expectations. Both myself and my travel partner enjoyed our stay and both felt safe and welcomed. The host, Eduardo and his mother helped us with directions and recommendations of local eateries and attractions, nothing was too much of an effort. Our room was cleaned daily and there was always and abundance and assortment of yummy food for breakfast.
I would highly recommend this B&B.
