“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.
Owner's reply: Grazie! 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.
“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.
Owner's reply: 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!
“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
“What a lovely place!”
We did not expect to stay so well for the price paied. Gennaro is a fantastic host! The house is not luxurios but very comfortable. The sea is nice and the Natural Park with its great views is at only 10 minutes walk. We will definitely return in future.
“Simple et rustique”
Appartement propre mais demande a etre amélioré : peintures, fenetres a changer pour les vacances d'hiver et compteur électrique faible... Mais propriétaire très sympatique.
Owner's reply: Merci pour le “Review”. Ameliorements le prochème année! Nous pouvons bien dir que la maison est chaud et propre e nous changerons les vieux ustensiles. Nous attendrons votre retour! Cordialement Gennaro
“Good value for money and nice service”
We arrived via motorcycle and our arrival time was not exact but we managed to sort things out nicely. Gennaro speaks good english so communication was easy. The apartment was furnished two rooms, toilet and a kitchen and a small yard. It was located in quiet area on the side of the town and at especially at night it was really peaceful. Overall I think it was really good value for money.
