The house has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a lounge, a dining room, a kitchen, a front terrace and a back terrace and a large garden. There is also an outside dining area sheltered under a grape vine and an outside barbecue. The house is big enough for 6 people to comfortably stay in.
The villa is in Borgo Vodice, a small farming village in the region of Latina, Lazio about 100 km south of Rome - very near the beach resorts of Sabaudia, Terracina and San Felice Circeo. The National Park of Circeo (a nature reserve) is a stone's throw away for those who enjoy cycling and walking. The mountains are a little further away, but a 45 minute drive could get you to the delightful historic mountain village of Sermoneta or to the Abbey of Fossanova. You could even visit the centre of Rome by train for a day and then relax back in the countryside! The area has a lot to offer at any time of the year.

Local Facilities: The village is about 5 minutes walk away from the house. There are 3 supermarkets, 3 bars, a post office, ATM, a chemist, a newsagents and a whole other range of shops. There is also a local vineyard nearby with award winning wine: Cantina Sant'Andrea. Wine can be bought by the bottle or you can fill up your demijohn from the huge wooden barrels at very reasonable prices!
How to get here: The easiest way to get here from abroad is to fly to Rome. You can land at either of the airports: Fiumicino or Ciampino. Budget airlines land at both. Hiring and picking up a car is very straight forward at both airports. The drive takes about 1 hour and a half and most of the travelling is on main roads. A car is a must in this area as public transport is infrequent, also a car means that many more exciting places are easily accessible!
The nearest train station is at Priverno/Fossanova. It is about a 20 minute drive away from the village. Trains run hourly to the central station of Rome Termini and takes about 50 minutes.
Local Produce: The farming area is well known for its local produce. Buffalo mozzarella is made locally in neaby farms and can be purchsed freshly made. Eucalyptus and orange blossom honey are also sold locally from nearby farms. Freshly caught fish is sold in local towns as is a range of locally grown vegetables and fruit. Wine can be bought from local vineyards at very reasonable prices.
