A dramatic clifftop stay in stunning Puglia with breathtaking views, breakfast and a welcome drink

The Lowdown

Clinging dramatically to a rocky clifftop with unbroken breathtaking vistas of the Italian coastline, Villa Scapone Hotel is set at one of the best viewpoints in town. Offering seclusion at it’s best, you’ll be able to take in these panoramas in the warm breeze as you sun yourself on an open terrace, relax on tucked away canopied daybeds dotted along the cliff or head to the beach just a short clamber or drive away.
Cool off in the midday sun with a dip in the hotel’s swimming pool or open-air hydromassage pool, dry off on the solarium or unwind with a good page turner on your room’s private and furnished balcony. The charming restaurant boasts breathtaking views down to Gargano harbour and serves up fresh fish and daily catches. End each day with a cool sundowner on the terrace as you watch the sun set over the twinkling water.

Breathtaking view

We went for our 20th year wedding anniversary. The views from the villa are amazing. The lady at the front desk was very nice and helpful (my Italian is not the best so it was nice that she speaks English). We booked the room only a couple of days in advance so she informed us no sea view room was available. Still, we we’re pleasantly surprised at the room having a nice view of flowers with a terrace, small table & chairs to have our wonderful Italian cafe and a hammock. The dinner was very good and local wine was nice. Romantic candle lit atmosphere with open views of the sea. The pool was nice and clean but it is a hike to get down to it. They also have cabanas set up, which were very relaxing. They allowed our dog as well ????

Nice place with a nice view

We’ve stayed three nights in the Villa Scarpone, the rooms were clean and we had a great view from our bed over the bay and the beach. Attached to the room was a little terrace with a jacuzzi and an outside shower, also with a great view over the entire beach. The breakfast was alright and exactly what you’ll expect from an Italian breakfast. A clear highlight is the direct access from the hotel the deep blue sea where you also have the chance to lent a little boat to cruise through the bay or to swim to a little platform which is great for resting and suntanning. Staff was also very friendly and helpful.

Wonderful location

The location is wonderful not only because of the exclusive view over the sea within the national park but also because of the wonderful staff (we arrived very late but they prepared the best room and ask the kitchen to stay to prepare diner after hours) , by the way the food was excellent and local wine too. The room has great view and private jacuzzi. All of
It for good prive. I highly recommend.
