It is a perfect base to explore Italy being just over one hour south of Rome, one hour north of Naples, one hour from the fabulous beaches at Formia and on the very edge of the Abruzzo National Park.. The famous Forte family (Rocco Forte) are from the next village and have built a sports complex with a tennis court, rugby/football pitch and a recently installed astro turf 5 aside football pitch donated by the Italian 2006 world cup winning team.Enjoy fabulous walks and superb cycling around the amazing tiny villages on quiet tracks or roads. This area is nicknamed locally as “Little Ireland” due to local family ties so English is widely spoken in shops and restaurants.The authentic elegant restaurants could not fail to impress the most discerning palette. Being south of Rome prices are very reasonable - one walking distance from the house.

                                                              The views are spectacular and it is a very peaceful setting. The down stairs and upstairs bedrooms are accessed by outside stairs and therefore not suitable for young children. The furnishings are lovely and modern with a light airy feel. There was however, mould on the ceiling in the ground floor bedroom when we stayed at the property which needs to be addressed. The villa was clean and smart but there was one oversight and that was when arrived the dish washer was full of dirty dishes! There are more positives than negatives with this property and overall, I would recommend it.

                                                              Thanks Robert for letting us use your wonderful house on the week leading up to our wedding! What a setting! What a place to seriously get away from it all, take in amazing views and just chill out. It may look old from the outside, but inside is very well decorated, with everything you need to enjoy a relaxing stay. I'd certainly recommend this place to my friends!

                                                              Thanks again!

                                                              très bon séjour malgré quelques bémols.

                                                              denis m.

                                                              Belle maison tout à fait conforme aux photos. Aucune arnaque! La vue est splendide. La maison possède tout le confort annoncé. Il y règne un calme incroyable et pas de vis à vis ce qui préserve l' intimité. Le prix au vue de la prestation se justifie pleinement. Cependant en arrivant nous avons trouvé de la vaisselle sale dans le lave-vaisselle. Les ustensiles de cuisine ont du être nettoyé en arrivant tout comme les sols. Le canapé mériterait un décrassage. Mais pas d' état des lieux ni caution donc pas vraiment de quoi se plaindre.

                                                              Un bon ménage en arrivant et on y passe de super vacances.

                                                              Je recommande donc vivement cette location.
