When driving to the hotel, you need to keep and eye out of the sign. If you're coming from Mattinata you have a sharp right turn before a big hill down. If you're coming from Vieste, it isn't possible to reach the hotel without backing up and going in the other direction to get down the steep hill - Truly a sharp turn, Jiminy!
The hotel lies a bit like a precipice, you could say. There is, like mentioned, a bug hill down to the main start. In the reception you are given a warm and comfortable reception. We lived in the main building, where we had a lovely room with a giant, really lovely, terrace with loungers and a hammock. The view from the room was magical, not to mention the view when taking a shower- the whole of the Mediterranean, wow!
We ate at the hotel restaurant 2 nights. The tables are put in small alcoves, a little chambre seoaree with a view over the ocean. The service is excellent, fairly priced and delicious food.
The hotel's breakfast is far above Italian standards, it is also ingested in alcoves with view over the ocean.
The hotel's pools are very beautiful, if you appreciate peace, quiet and swimming, it is perfect. If you want to swim in the ocean, there are no beaches connected to the hotel, but a path.
It feels like the hotel is perfect for couples, partly because of the separated alcoves for dinner and breakfast, but also because the hotel is very solitary and isolated. There isn't anywhere to go after dinner, you are pretty locked in.
We were there 3 nights and found it good. After 2 days, we did, however, feel like it was enough with the isolation and drove to the nearby town Mattinata and ate dinner there. It was very exciting driving on the streamers way in the middle of the night.
Recommendations for future guests
It is very separated by level, if you have problems walking, it can be a problem. The hotel is beautifully located next to mountain, and there are very noticeable rises when you need to up or down, if you are going to the ocean or the pools.
There is a lot too see in the neighbourhood, and a lot of fine beaches. If you combine it with Vieste 2 nights will do at Scapone, since the beaches and trips are much of the same, plus Villa Scapone is very isolated.
