We were stayig in the room nr.4 - cosy, clean, with a beautiful view from two balconies. The B&B is situated in the historic centre so it has kind of a magic atmosphere. It is fitted in an old style since it is a very old building. We were very much satisfied since the place is clean and itt has very comfy beds. You can have a breakfast on one of the two terraces overlooking the sea. Perfect. We can very much recommend it.

Hidden in the ancient part of Scalea, a beautiful little town in southern Italy, there's the B&B Lavinium, where I had a great experience. You have to walk a lot of stairs to reach it, but once you're there it's all worth it: it's basically a nice warm house, with four rooms each one different from the others, all personalized with impeccable taste and flawless attention to details. The beds are elegant and very comfortable, luxurious and wide bathrooms are available in any room, and upstairs there's a nice kitchen and dining room-living room. You can ask for the maid's services to get breakfast or if you prefer to feel like at home you're allowed to bring your things and make your own breakfast, as you want to, any time you want to, stove, fridge and everything you need is there for you. Big fancy tvs in every room and in the living room, along with an elegant couch and fireplace. Last but not least, actually perhaps the most amazing thing, there are two big terraces, one facing south-east and one facing north-west, with a gazebo, chairs and tables where you can enjoy an incredible postcardy-like view of the whole coast, including a magnificent sunset on the sea, with the whole city above you, surrounded by only the fresh air and gentle sound of the waves. If you're planning a trip to Scalea i highly recommend you this place unless you have health issues which make it impossible or very hard for you to walk up and down 70-ish staircases, if not then you MUST book a room here!

With an excellent view in the old charming part of scalea, this b&b is situated. Just in the center of scalea and 2 minutes walk from the beach. This is a cosy B&B, very intimate where the manager, Antonio, give you a hand with all matters that can arise. A very good breakfast is served in the mornings. Clean and friendly. Cannot be better.

Stayed here in June and enjoyed the Italian setting. Little English spoken here, and people are so friendly. They know how to greet and serve. Antonio was so helpful, and spoke some English and made the wonderful Italian breakfast of capuccino and homemade cornetta(croissant) and Italian sfogliatella pastry. The view from the room was the sweeping vista of the sea with the Church steeple and the little town. It has a piazza that is busy during the late mornings and pranzo(lunch) then it starts up again around 6pm. till midnight. Be prepared for the motorscooters at 11pm at night. The bed and breakfast was spotless with a wood floor room and bathroom that was tiled. Antonio and the housekeeper will make sure that you are comfortable. If you wish a real Italian experience, this is it. In the plaza you will find good food and drink, and friendly Italians ready to serve and practice their English. I would definitely go back. There are about 60 steps to the Bed and Breakfast, so if you are not used to that, it could be a challenge, but the building setting is an ancient setting so enjoy! .

The Lavinium is located in the absolute best part of Scalea. Located on a hill amongst the most ancient buildings in the town it is surrounded by all of the historic sites and has an amazing view of the sea which happens to be just a few minutes walk away. Everything is within easy walking distance (restaurants, shops, beach). And, the train station is less than a 5 minute car ride away from the B&B. I believe it is also walkable but didn't want to find out for myself with the heavy bags I was carrying so, I opted for a taxi pick-up (only 10euros) to arrive at the Lavinium. Antonio would have happily picked me up but was having car problems at that moment and so kindly sent a driver to the station to receive me upon arrival. Antonio met me upon arriving the St. Padre Pio statue at the bottom of the stairs leading to the B&B and kindly carried my bag up the 3 flights of ancient stairs. He was also kind enough to drop me to the train station upon my departure. As a solo traveler, my single room was perfect and the size of the town was a nice respite after nearly 3 months of traveling around Europe. It was wonderful to simply relax and take in the small town in a leisurely way. And, the Lavinium provided the best breakfasts I had in all of Europe! They put on a beautiful spread of both hot and cold options and even provided professionally made espresso and cappuccino for the coffee lovers! I truly enjoyed my stay and hope to return. Thank you to Antonio and Dragana for their hospitality!
