My wife and I stayed the first 2 nights of a 5-day whirlwind exploration of the Amalfi peninsula early June at Hotel Scapolatiello. To our great delight we found a place you only rarely come accross these days: a place located in beautiful as well as quiet surroundings off the beaten track in the middle of an authentic old Italian village, and yet with the comfort and luxury of a top hotel. Although we did visit sights in the vicinity we preferred to stay at the hotel to enjoy he delicious pool (with a stunning view), the supmtuous breakfast buffet (with a stunning view from the terrace), our beautifully decorated room (with a stunning view) or the many salons, drawing rooms or seating arrangements on the terreace - all in impeccable upkeep, as were the extensive gardens bursting with flowers and appealing scents. The staff at the reception were helpful and kind and helped us plan our outings. A visit to the neighbouring monestary is worth the while as is the lovely little Restaurant La Foce, just 300 m up the road behind the village Corpo di Cava where he hotel is located. Value for money and real Italian cuisine with authentic raw materials. The Hotel restaurant also serves a broad selection of Itaian food and although the service is classic and top-notch the food does not reach La Foce level. We are no planning to come back with our extended family next year to offer them an undiluted experience of the authentic, rural Italy in a comfortable setting.
