Gaeta apartment description

This beautifully decorated studio apartment sits on the main terrace of Villa Accetta, an aristocratic family home on the Gulf of Gaeta, halfway between Rome and Naples. The apartment with private entrance and terrace sleeps up to four people on two sofa beds. The studio is located directly above the Roman ruins that can be seen in the sea right outside its window. Guests can live La Dolce Vita with a glass of local wine or a pot of coffee on the terrace or in the lush gardens, or relax under an umbrella on the private beach, which is only available to visitors to Villa Accetta. Windows offer panoramic views of the medieval city of Gaeta across the bay; on a clear day you can see Vesuvius, and the islands of Capri and Ischia in the distance.
History and high technology sit comfortably together in this villa, built on Roman ruins, with updated amenities including Internet access. Only minutes from the train station, visitors can take easy day trips to Rome or Pompeii, Capri or Amalfi.
Villa Accetta overlooks the Gulf of Gaeta, where activities such as sailing, sailboarding, diving or boating fill the waters during the summer. The villa is an ideal and sophisticated venue for intimate, relaxing holidays year round, or as a home base for exploring all of Central Italy. Family groups can vacation together yet enjoy separate accommodations. Visitors can relax on the terrace or on the private beach, or explore the ancient ruins that dot the landscape. Secure parking is avaiable on the property, but for those who prefer not to drive, buses pass just steps from the front gate to whisk you to Gaeta, Formia, Sperlonga and beyond. The train station is only minutes by bus or taxi, and high speed trains connect to Rome or Naples and beyond. The villa and apartment have been painstakingly renovated with the comfort of guests in mind, and updated with 21st century luxuries - including Internet connection.

              Car: Not Necessary

              The Ulysses Riviera is an area of great beauty and historical importance on the Mediterranean Sea about halfway between Rome and Naples. Many of the great patrician families of the Roman Empire had summer villas on this coast, and the wealthy families of Rome continue to escape the city to villas along the beaches and in the hills. The Gulf of Gaeta offers water sports galore, from swimming to sailing, snorkeling and sail-boarding. 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 excellent 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 big cities and all their wonders, without having to deal with the traffic. The silvery clanks of the Aurunci Mountains climb steeply up from the shore behind the villa, and are home to a Provinical Park, in addition to several charming hill towns that make for good day trips. Just up the coast is Sperlonga, an ancient sea-front village with streets so tiny there are no cars allowed. Park at the base of the village and spend the day exploring, eating lunch and then walking down the splendid beach to the extensive ruins of one of the Emperor Tiberius' summer palaces.A well-stocked museum with spectacular statues and works of art from the villa sits beside the road above the ruins. Sperlonga and many of the surrounding hill towns may be reached in minutes by the bus that stops near the Villa's front gate.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1920

              About the owner: Welcome to the home where my family has lived for several generations. We recently completely remodeled Villa Accetta and divided it into a family home, with several rental apartments. We love to share the beauty of our terraces, gardens and private beach on the Gulf of Gaeta with guests from around the world.

              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
              The beauty and bounty of the sea that sits beyond our windows was what attracted my family to the villa many generations ago. There is nothing quite like sitting on your own terrace and watching the changing face of the Mediterranean Sea. We are also an easy daytrip to Rome or Naples, and we love to share the knowledge that only years of living in an area can bring.
