About Beatrice Tedeschi-Schmidt

Hi everyone!

I am the passionate manager of Villa Annunziata and I together with the owners I am delighted to propose it for your vacations.

I have studied and prepared it to grant you a pleasant stay without losing its genuine Italian-Mediterranean character!

I live here but I am from the north of Italy (a small town not far from Venice). I have selected this place for its exciting weather, nature, culture and location! You can have lunch outside at the sun more than 250 days per year; you are in the middle of some of the best historical sites and cities of Italy (1 hour from Rome, Naples-Pompeii and Caserta, but also lots of local sites within 20km from home!); the sea is wonderful and relaxing, and local thermal sites are healthful! For the same reason above I invite you to spend some time here and enjoy this lovely place, that even after many years always offers me exciting surprises

Please consider that we are a network of property owners that loves to meet new people and cultures, especially from overseas countries. This grants you several significant benefits…. With us you will be provided before arrival of clear directions and a useful set of local advises information about travelling in Italy and in the area ….

No agency fees, concierge service in English or Russian 12/7, quality standard, reliability and reputation, several payment methods accepted, prompt responses, support for any other matter you may need to solve (such as visa, rent a car, transfers, tours and excursions etc.).

We can help you in finding the best and cheapest solution to rent the car, arrange transfers, organize day trips to the best sites of culture, history or just for outlets shopping… We can provide add ins in the house you select like toys for kids (according upon the age), tablets and smartphones always connected, notebooks, Italian meals at home and much more!!

Beatrice Tedeschi-Schmidt purchased this villa in 2012

Why Beatrice Tedeschi-Schmidt chose Formia

Renting a villa under the Tuscan sun has become big business in Italy’s rolling north country. So big that the lovely family in the villa next door is as likely to be from London, Munich or Tokyo as to have lived in the Umbrian hills for generations. For those who like their Italy a bit more Italian, the southern half of the boot holds many treasures, and few of them have been discovered, far less overrun by tourists.

One such marvel is Formia, Gaeta, Sperlonga and Minturno, small, ancient towns on its own Gulf in the Mediterranean, sitting conveniently near the train line half-way between Rome and Naples. It is about 45 minutes by express train to either city, making it a perfect base for day trips. What it also offers are enough ancient ruins, medieval alleyways and old churches to keep any visitor enthralled for weeks, without so much as a glance at the tourist-clogged cities to the north and south. You will deal with me and or my team that with passion supports me to provide you the best service!

With us you have a reliable counterpart. You can be sure to do not have bad surprises…. We can accept payments with bank transfer, cash, credit cards and PayPal!

All this of this is not possible to be found from a single property owner nor from a real estate agency….

That is why me and other property owners pooled up our efforts together.

What makes this villa unique

Only 300m by the sea... you can smell it. At 700m by the road.

Everything is brand new! A comfort and luxury level like no other in the area. Every material and part of the villa has been carefully studied to maximize the comfort and the Italian character.

The position is perfect to visit Rome and Naples, Caserta, the Amalfi coast and much more just in 1 hour and relax in a peaceful and luxury place…

The position is also locally strategic… The beach and town center are walk by or in 1 minute by car… Hundreds of interesting sites to explore visit and taste in just 20 minutes…

Concierge in English, Russian, Italian that can support, provide advises or arrange excursions with van 12/7.

You will receive the home manual that include a local advises and Italian advises sections that out of the useful information on the house and tips to arrange you trip and enjoy Italy, provide you lots of ideas on how to spend and arrange your stay and visits.

Would you like to have some nights in Rome as well? We have several comfortable houses in Rome city center that you can reserve in the same time with this one?

Just ask and we will send you the best option!

Красивый дом с потрясающим видом!

  • 4 of 5

Дом полностью соответствовал нашим ожиданиям при бронировании, огорчил только газон, который сгорел на солнце и отличался от фотографий на сайте. Но дом имеет такой потрясающий вид на море, что через несколько дней перестаешь обращать внимание на газон. Дом очень уютный и комфортный для отдыха. К пляжу можно и пешком пройти, это занимает буквально 5 минут. К красивым пляжам Гаеты рукой подать.

Есть барбекю, учитывая, что в Формии и в Гаете есть хорошие рыбные рынки - это немаловажно.

Нам очень понравилось отдыхать в этом доме! И спасибо Беатрис и Деборе, что постарались сделать этот отдых приятным!!!

Exceeded every expectation!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Debora for our great stay in Villa Dolce Vita! The place was so glamorous, charming and soulful, which we really enjoyed the jacuzzi, the garden and the bbq. We were surrounded by the view of history, architecture and arts of Gaeta. There was plenty of space for our family with 8 people . We were very warmly welcomed and everything was perfectly organized. Attention had been paid even for the smallest ones. Everything was so clean. Kitchen was inviting and well-equipped. And the staff was very kind. Thank you!

Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

Let me just say that, without a doubt, staying at this Villa was one of the best decisions of our lives.

The Villa's property manager is responsive and flexible. She was ever-patient as she dealt with the evolving needs of my family, including my 85 year old grandmother who had never traveled abroad, She assisted us in arranging transport from the airport (at a very good price), organized cooking at home and last day lunch, and set us up for a "pizza night" which included homemade pizzas made in the Villa's.

A wonderful stay in a unique and stunning Villa

  • 5 of 5

Hi everyone,

In september 2015, my fiancé, our then 4 months old daughter, and myself travelled from Norway and spend an absolutely wonderful week in this amazing Villa just outside Rome!

Rome is one of the most beautiful and historic cities in the world but also a city full of crazy Italians and mad driving.

Villa Dolce Vita is therefore perfectly located just outside Rome at 1 hour approx., so you will feel like it is a place where you can truly relax and breath and in the same time be close to everything the city has to offer.

From the moment we arrived we almost forgot that we are in Italy! It is so peaceful and breathtakingly beautiful. WE LOVE IT

Absolutely stunning - the full package

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful place to stay, an elegant and charming home. The owner and the property manager go out of their way to make you feel welcome and comfortable. The Villa has a wealth of original features like the marvelous jacuzzi and a fascinating view. A short walk across the road brings you to a delightful restaurant with food and wine of the highest quality. Yes I would definitely recommend this property to my family and friends.

Great villa + some disappointments

  • 3 of 5

We have already submitted our positive review below. However, it was missing some important points. The villa, the garden and the view were great, but there was no information on the lack of fence preventing a neighbour's DOG from coming EVERY day to our garden&even INSIDE the house. There were also dog's poops on the grass. It was unaccetable for us, since we came with 3 small children and we couldn't leave them to play peacefully because the dog could come any minute and we were afraid of our kids not only stepping into a poop(which actually happened), but also of playing with it. We asked Vanessa and Beatrice to interfer, they said they did, but nothing change in this regard.

Then, on the 1st day(Friday) the jacuzzi switched off. We conntacted Vanessa immediately(and Beatrice after a while), she came on Sunday, was not able to repair it, called the technician who never came, but informed her next Friday(!) that there is a power switch she was not aware of! In the end we were able to use the jacuzzi for 1.5 out of 9 days of our stay!The JACUZZI WAS NOT WORKING properly anyway, because if we switched on all pumps and the heating it kept switching off so we kept running to this power switch. I CANNOT CALL IT COMFORTABLE, LET ALONE LUXURIOUS. We could only use the heating with bubbles at the same time.

It is not only these two issues that bothered us. It is also the way they were handled. We had to keep asking Vanessa and Beatrice about any progress on these 2 issues, we were not informed about the situation in a way that showed they cared. They were very nice, but it seemed to us, that it was not really a problem for them that there was a dog we did not know about and that this LUXURIUS VILLA WITH A JACUZZI HAD ACTUALLY NO JACUZZI FOR US.

SO WE PAID FOR TWO THINGS THAT WERE NOT PROVIDED - SAFE GARDEN FOR OUR CHILDREN WITHOUT A DOG AND ITS POOPS AND A WORKING JACUZZI.

We did in fact get a little gift from Vanessa and a discount - 120 euro (we paid 1,333 euro). It could be a nice gesture (though definitely not sufficient, since a villa without a jacuzzi definitely costs less and the dog issue was outraging) but it was handled in a very unpleasant way. We were KIND OF BLACKMAILED BY BEATRICE - she did not want to talk to us about a discount - she just said to me "if you write a positive review, I will give you a discount".She did not even state the amount.Then she stopped answering my emails completely.She could at least say there is no room for negotiations.

Owner's Response: We answered the guests' email and explained them the situation several times. Since we don't really handle the Jacuzzi maintenance we had to call the owner but were able to reach him just a couple of days after the guests called us. Anyway we kept them updated during the whole process and even if it was not really our responsibility we gave them a discount because we really felt their discomfort in not using the Jacuzzi for the entire stay. As for the dog, we begged the neighbour not to leave him free to go to the property but we didn't get any help on that side. That is why we asked the owner the permission to put up a separation net.
