My wife and I recently stayed at Casa Vacanze Scopeto in Scenic 1. When we arrived Lea was there to greet us and provided information on the property and surrounding area. She recommended restaurants and shopping in the area and ensured that we were comfortable in the unit. The unit itself was clean and suited our needs and requirements excellently. The bedroom was large and very comfortable. The location of this property is somewhat remote, but the positive side is that it is very peaceful and quiet. We especially enjoyed the outdoor patio area. The view from this patio is outstanding. The furniture on the patio is extremely comfortable and we often enjoyed a glass of wine there after a day of sightseeing. We never used the pool as it was the end of pool season and the weather was not pool weather. We did wander up to the pool and it was a very nice area. Lea was very attentive to our needs and genuinely seemed focused on ensuring that our vacation experience, at her property, was a positive one. I would not hesitate to recommend Casa Vacanze Scopeto to our friends and family and would return there, if we ever went back to Italy.
