  • Charming winding narrow paths leading to fabulous views and dotted by some good seafood restaurants. Always a pleasure to go here no matter the time of year or day.  more »
  • Day of Scilla. The day at sea, lying in the Bay ... in the evening after a delicious dinner in a restaurant with sea palafiffa, I toured X the alleyways of chianalea. Really lovely place.

  • Beautiful village. Very quaint. There are several restaurants with incredible views of the sea and craft shops. Pity that you see some garbage around.

  • We were not given a mini apartment. The area is not central; Breakfast is included but you have to go to a nearby bar where you can eat only things established, as long as they are available. In room refrigerator was not running and the small building was very busy and noisy. The hot water is dispensed via boiler and therefore not always available.

  • Good bed and breakfast consists of a ground floor Studio decently decorated. Only drawback is the distance from the sea and especially the public often included in the price.
