My best friend and I stayed three nights at this Agriturismo and had a wonderful time. It's located quite high up on a hill overlooking an incredible coastline - you get uninterrupted views of the blue, blue sea. There's a covered terrace where you can eat, and there are lots of different places to sit and read, in and out of the sun. It's true that the pool is tiny, but there are so many gorgeous coves nearby for swimming that you don't really need it.
The rooms are immaculately clean, and they left us a free bottle of local wine as a welcome gift. The shower wasn't quite hot enough, but other than that, no complaints.
We didn't have a car, and managed fine, but beware that buses from Castelmare del Golfo are few and far between. Ours didn't turn up, so we had to hitchhike.
It's a five minute walk uphill to Scopello itself, where there are half a dozen or so restaurants. One night we ate at the Agriturismo, which is pretty good (get the taglietelli alle sfincinello - it's mega). Breakfast was quite basic, but pleasant.
The nature reserve is a five minute drive away or a 20 minute walk, ditto the Tonnaro.
One last thing: there is a very noisy stray cat which hangs around the place crying all day, which you will find infuriating or cute depending on the way you roll.
All in all: highly recommended.
