About this location
The Lazio region
A beautiful area with wonderful beaches and pristine mountain areas. The Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise National Park distant only 50 minutes by car.
A wide range of activities from sailing to hillwalking to relaxation in the Spas.
Sightseeing to medieval towns, monasteries and fishing villages. Rome is distant only 90 minutes by train and Naples 45 minutes.
The cuisine is at the highest level ranging from fresh seafood to vegetarian meals.
Around Scauri places of interest range from the Spa in Suio (20 minutes by car); the Roman Archeological site (5 minutes by car); the medieval hilltown of Minturno (4 minutes); the Regional Park of Mount Aurunci, one of the biggest in Lazio region and the one claimed to have the highest mountain range closest to the sea (as high as 1535 m), 10 minutes by car; the beauty of Gaeta, the largest city of the area that gives name to the Gulf (15 minutes); the magic of Sperlonga, the white town above the sea (25 minutes); the world famous abbey of Monte Cassino (30 minutes); the World Heritage Site Reggia (royal palace of) di Caserta (30 min.)
These are the places in my mind at the moment. At your arrival you will find brochures about the area so to chose your daily trips to the places described or moving more far to the Isole Ponziane (islands at 1 hour by jetfoil), Naples (50 minutes by train), Rome (1h 40’ by train), Abruzzo National Park (1 hour by car) and so forth.
Direct Trains to POMPEI 1h40' journy and just € 6 ticket !
Seaside town sourranded by the mountains of the Aurunci Regional Park (highest peak 1535 m high).
In Scauri the most appreciated thing by tourists is the sea side, with the 5 kms promenade within two hills. I found a special place the Gianola and Mount of Scauri Regional Park: I have worked there as a ranger and still as a tourist every time I could find it a great place to energize, relax, enjoy wilderness and... swim in the sea.
International Folk festivals. Beer festival. Traditional feasts. Funfair.
Concerts and plays at Roman teathre.
Sailing courses in Scauri. Scuba diving nearby.
LOCAL 'WINTER' AVERAGE TEMPERATURE 14.8 DEGREES (CELSIUS) !!!

Met by Genaro's family who were great, and couldn't do enough when anything was amiss, eg when the electric tripped, they sorted it straight away and advised us how to manage it. As for the … More
as you state old things will be replaced...
However most guests like the old style of the inside and they return for this reason too.
The dogs I guess are the new ones from neighborhood and they should calm down pretty soon.
Regarding the flat above it is usually empty, owners just needed it for a while.
Anyway thank you for pointing out good and bad of the property, we always try our best to accommodate well our guests. That's why we are (or are close to) 5 stars on Tripadvisor!

"Una casa originale in un posto speciale"
Casa Filomena, è una casetta semplice ma che offre qualsiasi tipo di confort, come: relax con il suo giardino circondato da piante quali rose e varie specie di fiori fornito di sdraio e tavolino, svago grazie alla piccola videoteca, alla radio con cd da ascoltare, libri da leggere, e connessione wi-fi.
IL mare che dista a circa 700 metri è veramente speciale in particolare modo la spiaggia dei sassolini, una caletta immersa nella natura ai piedi del monte Scauri, ottima meta per fare escursionismo.
IL proprietario Gennaro oltre ad essere molto simpatico e preparato è stato anche molto cordiale facendoci assaporare alcune delizie del posto (limoni, olio e vino) e ci ha illustrato alcuni posti da visitare come Gaeta, Napoli, la reggia di Caserta e l'abbazia di Monte Cassino situati a poca distanza dal luogo
Inoltre per chi ama gli animali non può che notare la presenza simpaticissima del cagnolino Billy nei paraggi.
In effetti Billy merita un posto d'onore... metterò una sua foto online!

"Welcoming, warm and very friendly"
We are a family of 4 (two girls aged 7 and 13). We stayed at Casa Filomena
during Easter 2013 for 9 nights. We felt at home straight away. We were shown around the house and everything was explained to us clearly by the owner, Gennero, who continued throughout our stay to be extremely helpful and kind to us. Waking up in the morning there is a short walk to the local shops where we bought fresh Italian bread, coffee, amazing fruits and veggies and delicious hams and cheese to create a fantastic breakfast every morning to set us up for our day ahead. We hired a car at the airport in Rome which we found really useful for getting out and about. There is a fantastic spa about 30 min drive away. Pompeii took less than 2 hours (beautiful drive). We managed to drive to Naples to have a day in Capri (Naples was an interesting drive!!!) Scauri was a lovely local town where people seemed to be very friendly but it is a good idea to be able to explore other areas. If you don't want to hire a car, there is a train station in the town and a local tourist information office. In fact we went to Rome by train and had a great time but we missed the last train back and Gennero kindly picked us up from some station 11 miles away at nearly midnight! We had a fantastic time and would definitely like to come again...just for the fresh oranges every morning.

"Vacanza tra le rose"
Alla prima occhiata la casetta potrebbe deluderti, ci si aspetta sempre qualcosa di meglio, ma poi ci stai benissimo, un po' per il giardinetto che è un bell'esempio di macchia mediterranea… More
Grazie per la recensione, bella e sincera.
Per il bidet mi spiace, purtroppo la ditta ha sbagliato i lavori e non mi ha montato il water-bidet, che conto di metter in futuro.
Per la televisione il prima possibile (a star dietro i tecnici...) sarà disponibile l'antenna satellitare, con canali internazionali.
Grazie per l'apprezzamento del giardino, che col tempo (i rosai sono ancora giovani) darà sempre più il meglio di se.

"Comfortable accomodation in a lovely spot"
Casa Filomena has everything you need for a pleasant stay in Scauri. There's plenty of room, air conditioning/heating and a very nice rustic garden to enjoy. There's a beautiful cove and beach a very pleasant short walk away and on the way to it there is a very nice bar/restaurant whilst at the beach itself there's another bar - which is just what you need on a hot day! The centre of Scauri is about a twenty minute walk from the house and the railway station is about thirty minutes walk - there are local buses, but finding information about which route goes where and when they leave is not easy, but if you can figure out the buses, it will save your legs! There are bus stops about five or ten minutes walk away. You can also get (Cotral) buses to other towns in the area including Gaeta and Formia. Although there is a taxi rank on the main street - Via Appia - we never saw a taxi. Fortunately, there is a supermarket about ten minutes walk from the house. If you are driving then distance is not a problem and the house does have a parking area. The only real down-side for us were some dogs which would bark at all times day and night - maybe because they were new and hadn't settled in, hopefully, they will have quietened down now. This was our second stay in Scauri. We stopped at Gennaro's other property (La vecchia Legnaia) last time and we were going to stop there again, but some alterations were being done so Gennaro offered Casa Filomena to us, which we gladly accepted. Scauri is an excellent base for visiting places in Lazio and Campagna. It's easy and cheap to get to Rome, Naples, Pompei and Herculaneum by train and from Formia you can get a ferry to the island of Ponza - highly recomended. We went from Formia and stayed the night on Ponza, returning the next day via Terracina. Scauri itself has plenty of shops, bars and nice beaches. But if you're staying out of season, some bars etc. on the sea front may not be open; the same can be said for the tourist information office which we found open once - the day before we left for home! We will probably be back to Scauri next year and we will rent from Gennaro again. We know we'll be made welcome as will anyone else who meets the Ripa family.
Thank you ever so much for such a detailed review, helpful for future guests.
Regarding barking dogs there have not been any complaints anymore. I think that your guess about their habits is right, you have just been so unlucky..
I wish you all the best and look forward to meeting up again!

"Not for handicapped people"
Although difficult to find due to the lack of street names, the house was well equipped and comfortable. Being that it was an uphill climb from the parking space and there were several steps up and do… More
thank you very much for your review.
I am sorry for the trouble but:
Directions - In town they were changing the street names.. It should be more clear in future. Anyway I am always available to meet tourists in a main square and get them to the house. Next time please call me in advance!
Steps and the road - Thanks to you I will now mention it better on the advert. Previously I thought that it was enough to state (as it is on the advert) that the property is not suitable for disable people. However if you told me of your walking difficulties I would have warned you of the slope and stairs..
For future guests: please DO NOT hesitate to ask about anything important before booking, we will then do our best to accommodate you well!

"Fantastic time in a real Italian setting (at good price!)"
We had great time at Casa Filomena, we spent ages chilling out in the garden. Within 10 minutes of a nice walk we reached the beach daily, the water was good for swimming till the end of our stay in October!
We reached easily the house by train and used public transports to visit Gaeta, Sperlonga, Caserta, Naples, Pompei. we took the car to go trekking on the nearby mountains (easier option than public transport): the sea view was great from 1500 metres high!

"Unforgettable sky colours, great people and food!"
We had a very good time at this property. The kids had their space inside and jumped everywhere in the garden, where I could spend ages watching the sky the sea. he beach is a stone's throw away!
There are so many amazing places near by! (we didn't have enough time to visit all of them). We plan to return in the near future to spend more time at the beach and visit Pompei, Rome and other places nearby
