MALVASIA in the heart of Brindisi

Bed & Breakfast - Entire home/apt · Vico Scalese, Brindisi, Apúlia 72100, Italy

The Space

The Malvasia is strongly suggested because it is so cozy, . The apartment is large, tastefully decorated and with beautiful vaulted ceilings and tiled floors. Each of the bedrooms have it's own balcony overlooking the narrow street below. All the rooms, including the bathroom . There is also an amazing roof-top terrace where you can relax listening to the birds and the sounds of Brindisi.
The Malvasia B&B is situated in an old house in the very center of Brindisi. Could not be more central - two minute walk from the main shopping street and from the Cathedral square . The location close to the market Place and Victoria square is perfect for discovering Brindisi and its restaurants. Brindisi is a perfect beginning for discovering Apulien.
The Malvasia is much more than a bed and breakfast, it’s a whole experience. The facilities are exceptional and exceed all our expectations
.Breakfast have different and delicious homemade treats each morning. It’s served in a separate room located on ground level right next to the apartment entrance.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • When I first read the reviews for Malvasia I thought that previous people were exaggerating. How cynical and wrong I was. Cornelia (Ornella) and her husband Carlo are the warmest, most beautiful people who completely brought Brindisi to life. I felt so welcome from before I even got on the plane, and couldn't have had a more full experience if I tried. From the cappuccino and cornetto at the bar next door, to sharing food with them and their friends, I really felt part of the family.
    Bed was gorgeous, flat impeccable and just the coolest location. Brindisi is way more than somewhere to get the boat to Greece from! Highly recommend this charming port with beautiful architecture, warm people and a lovely sea breeze. Thank you Ornello, Carlo and Chica for just the break I needed! x x

    Mollie, I hope for you the best in the life, a lot of love, sing, song and sea and snow and dogs and all you wish, a kiss ornella & co

  • I highly recommend the Malvasia B&B! And not only for the cosy, nice and incredibly clean apartment and the confortable bed, but for the warmth that I received from the hosts Ornella and Carlo. Couldn't have been in a better place in Brindisi!!! They even invited me for lunch the day I arrived and, I must say, it was the best meal I had in Brindisi! Thanks a lot!

    ciao Maria, thanks you, lovely girl, it was a pleasure

  • Ornella is a very special human being. She and her husband made everything possible to make our stay in Brindisi enjoyable. She is generous, warm hearted, has a beautiful and comfortable flat and is ready to help in any possible way. We are certain that we have been very lucky to have met such an intelligent and caring couple and hope to come back again to Brindisi and have them as hosts! It made all the difference to stay in their flat! Highly recommended!

    Response from Cornelia:

    grazie Ana, grazie mille, un bacio Ornella e Carlo

  • Ornella was the best possible host!
    Not only was the apartment very cosy and clean (amazing bathroom!), but she also prepared delicious breakfast everyday with fresh products, and helped us a lot to find restaurants, bars, beaches, etc.
    Above all, Ornella helped us a lot when we had a problem in Brindisi (the boat to Greece was delayed): she accepted that we left our luggage in her place and drove her to the boat terminal at midnight so that we could catch our boat! It was really lovely from her.
    So thanks a lot Ornella for these nice moments spent with you in Italy, for sure we will come back!

    ciao Martin, grazieeeeee, un bacio anche a Tzeni, a presto

  • Ornella is a fantastic host! We were surrounded by care and warmth, it felt more like visiting a good friend than staying at B&B! Our room deserves a separate wow - it was really nice, spacious and with a very comfortable bed. Location is convenient, the station and the sea promenade are within 10 minutes walk. The breakfast was very generous and the atmosphere just great, I'm very happy we spent few days there!

  • Ornella is an extremly friendly and helpful person. Her B&B is located right in the center of Brindisi, very convenient to all places of interest. The apartment was clean, nice and comfortable and provides all necessary amenities. The breakfast prepared by Ornella was simply great! Mille grazie e a la prossima volta!

    thank you so much Marek, alla prossima volta!

  • Thank you so much Cornelia for making our stay in Brindisi amazing! We really had a great time, and we enjoyed your breakfast also, nice talks and very delicious! The room was very beautiful, awesome bed and bathroom, clean, lots of space, cool decoration (especially the handmade pottery) and all new. And very central. And thanks also for the good advice on things to see and eat, and for the taste of local living in the south of Italy. I totally recommend to stay at Malvasia.

    grazie Mark, grazie Justine, vi abbraccio ornella

  • This is a wonderful apartment with a wonderful host in the absolute heart of Brindisi. For what I was able to gather of the town, I couldn't imagine a more perfect place to stay and take it in.

    It's a bit crazy to get to by car (note: (website hidden) maps does NOT correctly show this part of town, most one-ways were incorrect) because of the tiny baroque streets and corners, but Cornelia was very helpful in finding us a tight space in the tiny square right in front of the apt. The apt itself was a good size, airy loft with good lounging and closet space and a fantastic (yes, hot water!) shower.

    Cornelia made us delicious, fresh breakfast in the mornings at whatever time we agreed to the night before. She served us in a little cafe bar that she said basically functions as private club for their friends. They hung out at nights and welcomed us in with a cigarette when we were around.

    All in all, terrific value and beautiful setting. I can't say enough good things about the warm hospitality and accommodating nature of the hosts!

    Thanks Cornelia, see you next year!

    thank you Eddie, good luky for all

  • The room at the B&B Malvasia was very nice, comfortable and spacious. the B&B is located in the centre of Brindisi and it is perfect to walk around the city. Ornella was very gentle and efficient! she provided us with all the information we needed and was very helpful in helping us finding a good place to eat and a taxi for the next day. We enjoyed our stay and would certainly recommend the B&B Malvasia to others.

    grazie Francesca

  • We spent one night in Brindisi to catch the ferry to Greece. We enjoyed our stay at Malvasia and would definitely recommend it: the room was very clean with all facilities you need (wifi, ceiling fan (and aircon if I remember correctly), iron and ironingboard tucked away in a small dressing area etc.), decorated with great taste, modern stylish bathroom and lovely hosts.

Ciao a tutti, mi chiamo Cornelia Carbonara ma da sempre, tutti mi chiamano Ornella, i miei genitori hanno voluto darmi il nome della nonna per rispetto della tradizione ma poi si sono resi conto che "Cornelia" era un pò pesante per una bambina e così lo hanno trasformato in (website hidden) non saprei dire con quale nome mi senta più me stessa, per certi aspetti sono Cornelia, riservata, seria, puntuale, materna, ma altre volte mi sento leggera e frizzante, come l'acqua di mare e Ornella ha la meglio, si arrotola nelle onde e fa le capriole sottacqua. Adoro il mare, il sole ed il sale, credo non potrei vivere in un posto lontano da questo elemento ma amo anche la terra, la mia terra, i suoi colori, la sua fertilità. Da svariati anni mi sono appassionata alla lavorazione della creta e durante l'inverno insegno questa meravigliosa arte in corsi specifici in alcune scuole della mia città; creare dal fango mi entusiasma e trasmettere la magia della lavorazione ceramica mi riempie di soddisfazioni. Sono felicemente sposata con Carlo e mamma di una monella di 22 anni di nome Giulia. Amo tutti gli animali, sopratutto i cani ed i cavalli ma se dovessi scegliere l'animale in cui reincarnarmi, vorrei essere un lupo, mi piace il vivere in branco ma anche la fedeltà , la fierezza e qualche volta la solitudine, che volete, ho due nomi e sono anche dei gemelli- Le cose di cui proprio non posso fare a meno non sono cose ma sono gli amici, do un grande valore all'amicizia e qualche volta anche la famiglia viene dopo, ad ogni modo cerco di essere corretta e disponibile con tutti perchè sto bene quando chi mi sta intorno sta bene e se posso fare qualcosa per qualcuno ne sono felice. Da 2 anni gestisco il B&B Malvasia ed è come avere il mondo in casa. Adesso però mi sembra di aver detto abbastanza, Il resto lo scoprirete se verrete nel mio b&b , a presto
