Property description

Villa Accetta, a comfortable getaway with an exclusive private beach on the beautiful Gulf of Gaeta, offers an excellent base for exploring south central Italy. Best of all, it's a family home, where the Accettas have lived for generations. Kiki and her family speak perfect English and Italian, and are on-site to assist you during your stay.

Perfect for a Mediterranean getaway, a honeymoon, a family reunion or a writer's retreat, this waterfront apartment with terrace offers all the comforts of home along with all the romance of the Italian seacoast.

ACCOMMODATIONS:
Two bedrooms (one with queen bed, one with two twins), and a queen sofa bed in the living room, means there's plenty of space for a family or a group of friends. The two bathrooms (one with bathtub, one with shower, both with bidets) mean no waiting. A large living room overlooking the sea, with separate dining room, a well-equipped kitchen, and an extensive terrace complete with table for six under a cooling sunshade, seal the deal. The kitchen has plenty of counter space and is fully equipped for making anything from a 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 WiFi and SKY TV. The villa and apartment have been painstakingly renovated with the comfort of guests in mind, and updated with 21st century luxuries.

SHOPPING:
Two supermarkets are just a few minutes walk from the villa gate. The bus stop is also near the gate and local buses take you into Gaeta or Formia for more shopping in about 10 minutes. There are also several local restaurants within walking distance.

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 from your terrace is the villa's private beach where you can swim in the clear Mediterranean waters, lie in the sun or enjoy the shade of an umbrella during the summer months. 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. In cooler months the terrace offers a perfect place for watching fishermen or simply taking in the ever-changing view of the Mediterranean.

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 about an hour.

BASE FOR EXPLORATION:
Located halfway between Rome and Naples, the villa is also just over an hour by train from Pompeii, or Herculaneum, or Capri, or the Amalfi coast, or the Abruzzi mountain ski slopes, 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 while enjoying 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 in Gaeta, 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. Delectable, made that morning, 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.

Year Purchased: 1900

About: Hello, I am Kiki Accetta, and my family has owned this villa for generations. A few years ago we split it into apartments to share with guests. I enjoy sharing the history of the villa and the area with our visitors, and am pleased to meet people from around the world. Because we have lived in Gaeta for generations, we have connections with restaurant owners, taxi drivers and others who can help to make your stay very enjoyable.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Sitting on the terrace gazing over the Gulf of Gaeta offers me a serenity unmatched by any other place. Even the fact that the Villa sits below the often-busy connection road between Formia and Gaeta can't disturb the beauty of the view. The mixture of old and new makes the Villa a perfect place to live and visit. The ancient foundations of Villa Accetta give me a sense of timelessness, and yet the villa is filled with modern conveniences, from washing machines to Wi-Fi, making it even more comfortable for me and my visitors.
