“Lovely La Vecchia Legnaia”
Reviewed 8 November 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We really enjoyed our stay at La Vecchia Legnaia. Gennaro and his family went out of their way to make us feel welcome and they have a lovely little guest house in the courtyard of their own home. The views from the top of the hill by the torre in Scauri were beautiful. We discovered that the area is a bit of a hot spot for windsurfing and kitesurfing in September which was great to watch whilst eating an ice cream! Scauri itself is rather quiet and there is limited choice of restaurants but there is no shortage of pizzerias! The house is very close to the train station so we found it very easy to do daytrips to Gaeta, Formia and Rome. If you choose to stay there we hope you enjoy your stay :)

“Enjoyable stay, highly recommended!”
Reviewed 20 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We spent an enjoyable and relaxing week in La Vecchia Legnaia. Very peaceful accommodation only 2 minutes walk from the shops, bakery, restaurant etc and from a great cafe where you can enjoy your morning cappucino. The apartment is very well equipped, clean, cosy and wifi works well. Ideally located very near the railway station where you can take the train either towards Naples or Rome. Or just take an easy and short bus/train trip to Formia, plenty of shops there if you don't feel like going further. But if you really like shopping then Naples is A must, very inexpensive too!

Scauri is also a very nice place itself and there is for sure enought to see and do for a week or so. We just loved the short walk up to Monte di Scauri to enjoy the peaceful nature and a great view! A perfect place to have a picnic. We were almost alone there at the end of September. And a beautiful quiet beach nearby.

We were excited to meet our host for the first time as he had given such a great impression via email before our arrival. Almost too good to be true. But yes, Gennaro is really a wonderful guy! Trustworthy and honest. And he just makes you smile 'cause he is so happy and positive, always willing to give help and advise! It was really a pleasure to meet him and his family and stay in his property. Highly recommended! Thank you G! Hoping to be back some day soon!

“Lovely place in Scauri”
Reviewed 9 October 2013 for a stay in August 2013

La Vecchia Legnaia is a perfect place for a couples get-away.
First of all, Gennaro is very helpful! The small house has everything you need and is in very close proximity to small shops with plenty of fresh, local groceries, cheese and meats, which can be enjoyed on the private terrasse. Our favourite discovery was the "tap-your-own-bottle-of-local-wine" in the supermarket for EUR1.5-2/liter!
The sandy beach is a short walk away, as is also the case of the train station. We went on day trips to Rome, Naples and Gaeta - you must go to Gaeta and see the Grotto Turco and explore the old town. It is beautiful! We rented bikes and went on small bike and hiking trips around the countryside near Scauri (though it was quite warm!).
It is a perfect place to go if you want to have a bit of beach, a bit of touristy sightseeing and a bit of nature.

“An ideal place to stay in Scauri”

Our second stay at La Vecchia Legnaia (The Old Storehouse) was just as good as our first - if not better. The property may not be luxurious but it has everything you need and is comfortable, plus it now has a new shower room which is an excellent addition. it's also ideally located for rail station, buses, shops including supermarkets, bars and the beach. The wifi woks well - better in the garden, but still ok in the house. Gennaro and the Ripa family are superb hosts, always willing to give help and advice. We will certainly be returning. We have stayed in Scauri three times - once in Gennaro's other property Casa Filomena - and have always found it a safe and friendly town where the sun shines most of the time. It's easy to get to Rome and Naples, as well as other towns such as Formia, Gaeta and Fondi; plus you can also get trains direct to Herculaneum and Pompeii. If you are not driving it can be a bit more difficult to get to other places such as the Roman ruins at Minturnae - even though they're only about five kilometres away - but it can be done by bus and it is well worth a visit. There's plenty of food and drink available at the various bars and restaurants in town and along the Lido and La Rusticone on Via Appia is ideal for take away pizza. We will definately be back! Tip: if mosquitos like to nibble on you try Ultrathon, a very good repellent; but if they do still get you and it itches and swells, put haemeroid cream on - it really works!!!

Great stay at La Vecchia Legnaia, again for the fifth time. Perfect for us, single mom with daughter (10) and also for couples. Cute italian cottage surrounded by flowe/fruit tree garden and sunny/shady yard, complete with everyting you need, located in a typical south italian seaside village, between Rome and Naples. It feels like being in an Italian movie... Owner really makes you feel at home and attends for anything you might require, great source of information about the area and possible trips as well.
Thank you Gennaro and family!
See you next year!
