“Lovely place in Scauri”
Reviewed 8 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!

“a lovely little romantic place with easy commute to rome”
Reviewed 13 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

this was what i wanted, a nice place beside the beach for two to relax in the evening and with a train station nearby to go to rome and see what we wanted on the day and go back out and chill at night, and it was perfect, it is 100% genuine to be 5mins from the beach and 5mins from the train station( if been duped before) and the beach is lovely,we went to the colosseum and the vatican on our days in and if anyone has never been,once seen never forgotten! our host gennaro was a cool guy and very helpful as was his family (you could not meet nicer people) it is nice these days to see the human touch, i would go back no bother

“Charming little one-room shack, in a great location.”
Reviewed 17 November 2011 for a stay in September 2011

Firstly, the welcome was fantastic! Picked up at the station, greeted with a bottle of local wine, fresh buffalo Mozzerella, bread and tomatoes. Outside was a really nice place to sit and relax and enjoy a beer or two in the evening and just as nice for enjoying your morning coffee. Ideally located for the railway station, buses, bars, cafes and the beach. The little house was fine and had everything you need. But it was maybe just a bit over furnished/cluttered - I'd suggest getting rid of some stuff and maybe putting a couple of comfortable chairs in and maybe having a slightly larger table. Also the shower room is very small and could do with a bit of redecorating. There is another shower room and the wall between the two could be knocked through to make one larger room - which I think would be better. One down side was the mosquitos - they're evil!! Nevertheless, the family were all very helpful and friendly - especially mama who gave us home made jam, waffles and a plate of fresly made pasta. All in all we had a lovelly time at La Vecchia Legnaia and expect to retrurn next year - can't wait!!!

Dear Guest,
the bathroom will indeed be spacious in future, we will make photos online.
Furniture is for people that like to have space to store things in.
Mosquitos.. yeah, but at least they are not inside thanks to the very good mosquito nets. For outside it is needed to burn repellents.
At the end you have already booked for the coming year, welcoming will be even better!
