Gaeta apartment description

Villa Accetta, an elegant and comfortable getaway with an exclusive private beach on the beautiful Gulf of Gaeta, offers an excellent base for exploring south central Italy.

Perfect for a writer's retreat, a de-stressing getaway, a honeymoon, or a holiday, this waterfront apartment with terrace couldn't be better.

ACCOMMODATIONS:
Two bedrooms (one with queen bed, one with twin), a sofa bed in the living room, two bathrooms (one with bathtub, one with shower, both with bidets), a large living and dining room, a huge kitchen, and an extensive terrace overlooking the sea. The large kitchen has plenty of counter space and is fully equipped for making anything from that pot of coffee to a five course meal.

PARKING:
Parking is in a secure area on the villa's property, just steps from the apartment door.

INTERNET ACCESS:
History and high technology coexist comfortably in Villa Accetta, which is built on Roman ruins, but with updated amenities including wireless Internet access and SKY TV. The villa and apartment have been painstakingly renovated with the comfort of guests in mind, and updated with 21st century luxuries.

MEDITERRANEAN BLISS:
Guests can live La Dolce Vita with a glass of local wine or a pot of coffee on the terrace, while watching activities such as fishing, sailing, sailboarding, diving or boating in the popular Gulf of Gaeta. Just a few steps away is a private beach where you can swim in the clear Mediterranean waters, lie in the sun or enjoy the shade of an umbrella. Panoramic views of the medieval city of Gaeta float across the bay; on a clear day you can see Vesuvius, and the islands of Capri and Ischia in the distance.

TRANSPORTATION:
City buses stop near the villa's gate about every 15 minutes, and take you into the heart of Old Gaeta or Formia in just minutes. The train station is only a 10 minute bus or taxi ride from the villa, and trains will take you to the heart of Rome or Naples in under an hour.

BASE FOR EXPLORATION:
Located halfway between Rome and Naples, the villa is also just an hour or so by train from Pompeii, or Herculaneum, or Capri, or the Amalfi coast, or the Abruzzi mountains, or from the classical opera house of Teatro San Carlo in Naples. Driving directions are available, if you rent a car at the airport, or we can arrange to pick you up. We also can arrange day trips with several drivers who work with us.

MORE THAN TWO MILLENNIA OF HISTORY:
If ancient ruins are of interest, Gaeta and the surrounding area have been occupied for nearly three millennia, most spectacularly by the patrician Roman elite who built their villas on the sea 2000 years ago. Ample remains of the ruins can be found right below the terraces of Villa Accetta, as the villa sits above Artacia Fons, the fresh-water spring mentioned by Virgil as the place where Aeneas found fresh water after months at sea. Sites and museums are plentiful along the coast, from Sperlonga to Gaeta and Formia and south to Minturno and Cumae, each of which can be reached by local bus.

FAMILY GATHERINGS
Family groups can vacation together yet enjoy separate accommodations. Visitors can relax on the terrace or swim in the warm, clear Mediterranean from the private beach, or explore the ancient ruins that dot the landscape.Formia, Sperlonga and beyond.

EAT, DRINK, ENJOY
Dozens of splendid restaurants in Gaeta or Formia offer seafood caught that afternoon, and served to you the same night. The local specialty is a unique, two crusted pizza called tiella. Fresh mozzarella di buffalo is available in many of the marketplaces, and is served in most of the restaurants. Gaeta has an outdoor market on Wednesday's and Formia's is on Thursday, where fresh vegetables, artisan cheeses, olives and olive oil are available.

                          Car: Not Necessary

                          The Ulysses Riviera, on the Mediterranean Sea halfway between Rome and Naples, is an area of breathtaking beauty and historical importance. Many of the great families of Republican and Imperial Rome built summer villas on this coast, and the wealthy families of Rome continue to do so to this day. The Gulf of Gaeta offers water sports from swimming to sailing, snorkeling and sail-boarding. The surrounding mountains offer hiking opportunities. Or, if you choose, you can lie by the sea, soak up the sun, and relax. The two towns adjacent to the villa, Gaeta and Formia, offer wonderful restaurants that serve seafood caught daily in the bay. The towns also have extensive Roman ruins to explore, along with medieval churches and the splendid Turk's Grotto on Monte Orlando. Rome and Naples are about an hour away by train, making Villa Accetta an excellent home base for exploration of the cities, Pompeii, Amalfi, Sperlonga and more, without having to deal with city traffic.
