About Maria

LivingApple was founded by Luca and Maria, husband and wife, both keen travelers, the pair had become increasingly dissatisfied with expensive, anonymous hotels.

As an alternative, they found that guests were choosing private rentals – a concept which offered guests cheaper, more personal accommodation options and an overall more authentic holiday experience. And thus, the pair decided to create a company which would combine technical know-how, a passion for travel and a closer attention to the individual needs of users, all rooted in the unique flavor of Italy. The result of this is LivingApple.

Maria purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Maria chose Scauri

Our goal is to provide an accessible, affordable alternative to hotels, with a strong focus on quality and value-for-money. We have a group of highly motivated, in the heart of Italy: the geographical position of the Gulf of Gaeta is characterized by the fact of being protected by the mountain range Aurunci: it takes only 30 minutes to move easily from the sea to the Monte Redentore (1252 on sea level).

What makes this apartment unique

The weather ... the weather in our area is really unique. In our country is very rare that the temperature falls below 0 ° even in the winter!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We stayed here for a week at the end of May. The apartment was easily large enough for our group of 4 adults and 3 children - it is really spacious, clean and well equiped. There is a large covered terrace and we ate out here most of the time. It has free wifi and pretty much anything else you need. It really is exceptionally good value. The apartment is in a 4 storey block and is on the first floor. It is within a secure garden with electonic gates so was good to let the kids play without having to watch them all the time. It was a bit tricky to find first time - the access from Scauri is via a very narrow lane which winds its way round and under the railway line and nearby main road - once you get used to it though, its OK. As far as acess to a great part of Italy is concerned - it is ideal. The coastal towns of Gaeta and Sperlonga are nearby and really worth a visit. We also took a trip to Ventotene which is an amazing place (despite the seasickness getting there). One thing which amazed us was the price - we could get Coffee and Ice creams and often get change from 10 Euros! Problems? - very few and very trivial. The reception on the TV was a bit flaky (but we were not there to watch TV anyway) and the bins for rubbish are a bit of a walk away.

A home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The photos do not do this beautiful apartment any justice. Very clean and spacious with spectacular views. We had everything we could possibly need - the owners were nothing but friendly and helpful. Beautiful views of the sea and mountains. We did not want to go home and will certainly be going back. Thank you so much for an amazing holiday!

What we wanted and more

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was spacious, clean and well equipped.

Maria and Luca were welcoming and very helpful, offering us advise on places to visit as well as where to access local services.

The views from the apartment of the mountains and across the bay are stunning providing a peaceful back drop to our meals. The sun sets were glorious.

The location of the apartment is ideal for accessing the local beach, coastal walk, natural parks and mountains. We could also get a train straight to Naples and Rome.

We were looking for a place to stay in February that offered great value for money and opportunities to hike, cycle and site see in the real Italy. We got this and more. Off the tourist trail,we had the bonus of visiting local historical sites including walking on the ancient Appian way and walking on the snow covered peaks of the mountains with hardly anyone else around. This is a hidden gem.

Thank you Maria and Luca

Our holiday in sunny Italy!

  • 5 of 5

We rested with friends in an apartment with 13/08/2011 to 27/08/2011. Rest we liked. Apartment class "lux", where everything is thought out, comfortable, clean. All appliances worked flawlessly. The house is very beautiful and well kept garden.From the apartment offers wonderful views of the mountains. To the sea for about 20 minutes leisurely walk to shopping street for 10 minutes. The village itself Skauri cute, handsome, with beautiful waterfront. The sea is warm and tender, shallow near the shore, which is good for families with young children, beach sand, clean. The hosts made the apartment very nice impression: everything is clear, professional, always ready to help, assist. Thank you very much, Luke and Mary, we thank you for our wonderful holiday!

Living Apple and Scauri are worth a visit!

  • 4 of 5

Scauri offers a good beach holiday and a good inexpensive dining options. LivingApple is good place to stay and to examine the local area.

Main street (Via Appia) is 15 minute away by walk and to get to beach it takes 5 min more to walk. If you visit this place with kids, you should have a car!

FUJI is good apartment for 8-9 people! Only negative thing is that the living room does not have comfortable seating place for everyone, couch is just too small.

stay in appartment Delicious in April 2011

  • 4 of 5

We truly enjoyed our 1 week stay at appartment Delicious in Scauri. Maria and Luca received/met us at the fixed time in Scauri and led us to their appartment.

The appartment was spacious, very clean and fully equiped. We did not miss anything. The view was splendid (snowcapped mountains), the air was clean and there were no or hardly any cars in the neighbourhood.

The owners informed us well about the possibilities of sight seeing, places of interest, banks and shops, etc.

We really enjoyed our stay in Scauri and saw a lot of interesting places.

We only want to stipulate that it would be a good idea to inform future guests that this appartment is situated on the third floor of an building without an elevator. Hence you have to 'climb' six stairs. For elderly/disabled persons this might be a problem.

Sunny Italie

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I were staying in Delicious for two weeks in August of this year. It was a very nice stay. We had beauitifull weather and Maria and Luca are very helpfull and friendly hosts. We got very much information about what we could visit in the area and very handy information about the public transport to Rome and Napoli. The house was fully equipt in a very good an nice area. Although we were there in the hottest month of the year we did not need the airco because of the nice wind from the mountains. We could eat every day at the terrace if we wanted and the views were spectacular from the terrace.

The noise from the town, the dog (we named him Bello) and the rooster ( we called him Harry) were just those things to expect and love in the rural area of Scauri. We loved them and even miss them. The sounds from the village give you a real vacation feeling and we loved it.

I already recomemded it to friends as a perfect base to see Rome, Capri (were we stayed for 2 days) Napoli and the Amalfi coast.And ofcourse the beautifull surroundings of the area itself.

We absolutely go back when we want to see more of that part of Italie and thanking both Maria and Luca for there friendly advices and help when needed.

Grazy and arrividerci from Elizabeth and Roel

Car: recommended

Located in the Gaeta's Gulf, between Rome and Naples, close to the historic center of Minturno (about 1,400 meters). The main road is 1 km away if you take by car and 900 m by walk: walk, ride a bike, in the countryside or by the sea is the only choice you have to ask yourself, and if you'll move few kilometers (4 or 5 maximum) nature trails (mountain too) are waiting for your shoes or your mountain bikes without forgetting that the water sports (windsurfing, water skiing, paragliding in the water, jet skis) are easily workable in Scauri. The center of Scauri is 1.2 km and on Via Appia you can find everything you need: pharmacy, travel agency, supermarket, bank, post office and restaurants. The railway station (Minturno-Scauri) is 1.5 km.
