A wonderful holiday
Excellent accommodation located high on a hillside just outside Itri (Girolama is happy to meet you on your first visit- definitely recommended if it is dark). Itri is a small town with all of the required amenities (supermarkets, banks, PO, garages and restaurants). Stunning well equipped apartment set in a beautiful garden. Large spacious living accommodation. Views of the coastline from outside patios making a wonderful outdoor space.
Girolamo provides recommendations for local visits and restaurants. Highly recommend Pulcinella, a restaurant near the castle.
Rome and Naples easy to visit, can go by train from nearby station. Car essential for this accommodation. Lots of nearby beaches, towns and monasteries to visit.
A truly wonderful place to enjoy a holiday.
A perfect holiday ...
... but one week was just too short. A perfect house with all amenities, tastefully furnished, extremely well maintained in a most beautiful garden setting with sweeping views of the countryside right to the islands of Ponza and Palmerola: we certainly will be back!
A fantastic villa in a very quiet location in the beautiful hills between Itri and the fashionable Coastal town of Sperlonga. The main living area has a double height interior and is furnished to a very high and also stylish standard. There is no dishwasher or air conditioning but we were there during very hot weather and coped well with the fans provided. Girolamo is a very courteous and welcoming host and is on site at the Villa should you need anything, his English is excellent. Brilliant beaches within 10 minutes drive and Rome or Naples within easy reach on the efficient local trains. You can park in Formia 15 minutes drive away, and be in Rome in about an hour and a half by Trainitalia. I would recommend flying to Ciampino south of Rome with Ryan Air, the drive to the Villa is then only about 2 hours. You definitely need a car for this Villa.
