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 with impeccable taste and flawless attention to details. The beds are elegant and very comfortable, luxurious and wide bathrooms are available in any room, and upstairs there's a nice kitchen and dining room-living room. You can ask for the maid's services to get breakfast or if you prefer to feel like at home you're allowed to bring your things and make your own breakfast, as you want to, any time you want to, stove, fridge and everything you need is there for you. Big fancy tvs in every room and in the living room, along with an elegant couch and fireplace. Last but not least, actually perhaps the most amazing thing, there are two big terraces, one facing south-east and one facing north-west, with a gazebo, chairs and tables where you can enjoy an incredible postcardy-like view of the whole coast, including a magnificent sunset on the sea, with the whole city above you, surrounded by only the fresh air and gentle sound of the waves. If you're planning a trip to Scalea i highly recommend you this place unless you have health issues which make it impossible or very hard for you to walk up and down 70-ish staircases, if not then you MUST book a room here!
