Had a lovely stay in Scala at Paula's place. The view is amazing - so picturesque and beautiful. We loved the very local atmosphere in the little town where we saw the Italian dolce vita played out. Paula was super friendly and gave a lot of information. The apartment was fine and had all the basics. We travelled with our two boys (9 and 11). Paula has a lot of great veggies in her garden which we used for our cooking.
Our trips to the beach took a little but longer than expected; it takes about 30 min down the curvy cliffs. Moreover, the car was useless as it is impossible to park (July). Instead we took the local bus which runs approx. every second hour. Takes 45 min to walk to the beach - also nice. We tried out three different beaches and found Atrani the best.
Would have liked to visit more of the small towns but do not underestimate the distances at the Amalfi Coast :-)
Best reviews to the authentic Scala!
Very welcoming host who can provide great tips about the surroundings, great terrace on the roof with a stunning view, fully equipped kitchen facilities were superb, possibility to park is a great bonus!
Overall great experience!
Paula est une hôte remarquable par sa gentillesse et son accueil. Travaillant dans le tourisme, elle parle notamment couramment le français et se fait un plaisir de vous renseigner et de vous conseiller intelligemment sur quoi faire sur la côte amalfitaine. Si vous prenez le temps, elle vous expliquera aussi beaucoup de choses à propos de l'histoire de son pays et plus spécialement sur sa région. Scala est le lieu idéal si vous souhaitez être à deux pas des villages touristiques de Positano et Amalfi sans avoir la foule et le bruit la nuit tombée. Sur la colline qui fait face au studio, vous aurez un panorama sur le ravissant village de Ravello, à ne pas manquer, et au loin la mer. Adossée au studio, le potager de Paula est typique des amalfitains, regorge de tomates, oignons, basilic et autres végétaux alléchants. Un délice.
Sur le toit, une terrasse orientée au sud vous permets d'avoir un panorama à 360° sur la mer, Ravello, et les montagnes qui nous encercle. C'est magnifique!
Vous aurez la possibilité de garer en sécurité votre voiture dans la cour du studio.
Bref, n'hésitez à louer cet endroit plein de charme , sans chichi mais ô combien typique et séduisant.
Paula was a great host and went over and beyond to make our stay in Scala/ Ravello completely magical and convenient.
She helped to arrange a taxi at good rates to pick us up all the way from Pompeii. Then she offered to drop us twice from the apartment to the various wedding events we had over the two days.
The room was spacious and amazing. Her facilities are clean and cosy. I love the bed on the mezzanine. There was a small pantry and ensuite bathroom. The view from the apartment was breathless, on a hill overlooking the beautiful Italian mountain towns. Our host had fresh apricots and plum from her garden and a beautiful bottle of sparkling waiting for our arrival.
The location was beautiful, although it's on a hill so if you don't enjoy too many steps that may not be for you. But we really enjoyed the long walks and extra exercise and felt that we had all the time in the world at this lovely and romantic place. There is also a bus stop and tabac nearby so still quite convenient to get around.
The place really made our stay a truly memorable one.
What an unbelievable place! Ravello, Scala and the surrounding area is blissful. Paula was the perfect host, leaving us to ourselves when we wanted but always on hand to help with advise when needed. She even secured us an excellent deal on a taxi back to Napoli, saving us about three hours and a lot of upheaval.
The location is great, about a 20/25 minute walk in to Ravello along mostly traditional steps and views around the valley. There's a local shop about 5 mins walk away for all your culinary needs and even a little restaurant on the same little piazza.
The apartment is very spacious for two and because of the traditional Italian architecture, perfectly comfortable all day long.
Our stay on the Amalfi coast was amazing! Scala was the perfect location to access Ravello and the steps to Amalfi, as well as a very convenient bus system to Salerno, Positano, etc, though we didn't make it to those cities. We ended up extending our stay by 2 nights once we arrived, Alladin and Paula made it very easy and were super accommodating. Paula was always helpful and willing to offer advice and suggestions. The apartment was clean and the perfect amount of privacy. We had arrived kinda late and even in the wrong area but Paula was helpful and kind and found us to take us up to Scala. We couldn't have asked for a better experience.
Paula made me feel very welcome and at ease. She show me around the first evening and we even shared an Italian spritzer. She helped me get boat tickets to Capri. The apartment was spacious and nice, and just off all the paths taking you nearby villages and beaches.
Paula, the host, was very kind and helpful. When I made my way to Scala, I tried to contact her to let her know that I would be there but I didn't have the correct number for her (I didn't put in the area code!) so she wasn't there to pick me up (my bad!) so I then eventually got to Revello (the next town) and got into contact w her.. She came and picked me up right away even though she had an important plan to attend to which was really nice of her to do. She made me feel welcome and gave me advise on things to do.
The room is great, very spacious and clean. There are no cooking facilities but you can keep stuff in the fridge. There is also an amazing view from the roof top!
The location is great if you want to do some hiking or walk through the other towns, but it does take about 20-30 mins from Amalfi by bus to get there. There are also a few nice restaurants around (Il Pinguino was great, also on same street).
Scala itself is filled with so many lovely people and I would definitely recommend staying here!
We were met with open arms by Alladin's friend and she right away gave us information on where to visit, where to eat, and some great hikes along the coast! The place is a comfortable studio with a private bathroom and shower. It has individual access so no one had to be bothered while leaving and entering. The rooftop is a great place to relax and enjoy the stunning view of the coast. I would highly recommend a stay here.
We really enjoyed our stay here - Scala is a lovely, quiet village only a 20 minute walk from Ravello and the apartment was good value and a great place to stay. We were collected from the bus station by Paula who was very friendly and gave us all the information we needed about where to go and what to do. Would highly recommend!
Quelle bonheur de te rencontre Paola! A très bientôt!
paola fue muy simpática y agradable, la recomiendo como huésped.
Wir hatten Paola 2 Tage zu Gast. Sie war absolut freundlich und zuvorkommend, rücksichtsvoll und höflich. Sie hinterließ das Zimmer so, wie sie es vorgefunden hatte. Schön, solche Gäste zu haben. Sie ist immer wieder herzlich willkomen bei uns.
