Lovely house, good location
We were a party of six plus two small kids. The house had all the facilities that we needed except for a cod which was indicated in the information sheet to be there. Some argument arose with the facilities manager as they wanted to charge us an extra 30€ for this. It was finally settled after our insistance that the rental included this item.
For the rest all was fine, good location to walk to the beach, deck chairs and umbrella included.
The reasons for giving only three stars are:
Place is a bit worn and needs some care especially the bathrooms need to carefully checked!
Argument about extra payment felt like we were put under pressure to pay the extra 30€
Traditional Italian property, the interior and furnishings are a little tired but perfectly clean and functioning.
Decent sized rooms and outdoor space.
Sadly the air con is NOT included but is charged extra at 10euro per day which we did not know. This is not clear on booking when you have specified this in your search category. And is much needed when you visit in August.
The location of the property is great. 5 mins walk into town and the beach or 10mins walk to the old town piazza.
The bus stop is right by the turning for the house off the min road.
The property has 2 beds and umbrella on the lovely la laterna lido. This is an excellent plus point for the property.
Paolo and Marilena were helpful and met us at the house.
Nice house in decent area
This was a lovely property with loads of space and a good location.
It's near the beach and the old town and has all the facilities you need
Nice house and good location, terrible owner
For a family of 6, this house had plenty of room and met all of our needs. It was walking distance to the beach and came with an umbrella at one of the beach side restaurants.
However, we were VERY disappointed with the way we were treated by the owners. The listing advertised wifi and airconditoning. We did not have either.
We had to ask for the wifi, and when they came back with the unit, it did not work.
We also had to ask to use the air conditioning, as the switch was under lock and key. Although we asked for it, it was NEVER provided, for the 3 nights we stayed.
Before our checkin, we were not contacted by the owner at all. I messaged many times asking for an address, but was never provided one. After we arrived in Sperlonga, we finally got a hold of Paulo on the phone.
It could've been a great experience- but they made it very clear that they were not interested in helping the customer. For an experience that is supposed to feel like a home away from home, this was more than lacking.
I wish I could give a better review, as I liked the house and location, but , for us, next time I will not return here.
Jag rekommenderar detta hus som är lika fint i verkligheten som på bilderna. Väldigt rymligt och passar stora sällskap. Läget är perfekt, nära till både stranden och till gamla staden. Bra service från fastighetsmäklarna som ryckte ut då vi behövde det.
Some useful information about Sperlonga and its surroundings
Sperlonga is one of the most characteristic towns of the province of Latina that offers much to its guests. The town has preserved its picuresque structure due to the successful efforts of native people in defending their land against constant raids of pirates. Apart of the clean and limpid sea certified by the sign of the Blue Flag and a good beach that will like both children and their parents, Sperlonga is characterized by an interesting historical centre with typical narrow medieval streets, for years occupied by craftsmen and various shops. The central square (La Piazzetta) is a traditional meeting place, from which all evening walkings usually start, then proceeded by sipping good wine in a nice company in one of the local bars. A few steps further there is beautiful walking area called Belvedere, so be careful, because its very easy to fall in love with this town forever. At a distance of 1 km there is Sperlonga’s National Archaeological Museum of the Tiberius Grotto (Museo Archeologico Nazionale della Grotta di Tiberio), where are exposed unique marble fragments excavated from the near Villa of Tiberius in the 1960s.
Emperor Tiberius loved to spend his free time in his residences of Capri and Sperlonga. The Tower Truglia is also splendid and permanently dominates the port of Sperlonga. It’s important to remeber that everything is reachable by foot or by bycicle (amodern bikeway goes through the whole town). Few kilometres far from Sperlonga there are some locations and towns that are highly recommended to visit: Gaeta, an antique town of seamen, Terracina with the Temple of Jiupiter, Fondi, a very old city with The Baronale Castle, Cassino with the famous Abbey, etc.
