EXCLUSIVE PRIVATE BEACH, WATERFRONT 2-BEDROOM TERRACED APARTMENT

Gaeta Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2 baths, full kitchen, oceanfront terrace, sleeps 6

Villa Accetta, an elegant and comfortable getaway with an exclusive private beach on the beautiful Gulf of Gaeta, offers an excellent base for exploring south central Italy.

Perfect for a writer's retreat, a de-stressing getaway, a honeymoon, or a holiday, this waterfront apartment with terrace couldn't be better.

ACCOMMODATIONS:

Two bedrooms (one with queen bed, one with twin), a sofa bed in the living room, two bathrooms (one with bathtub, one with shower, both with bidets), a large living and dining room, a huge kitchen, and an extensive terrace overlooking the sea. The large kitchen has plenty of counter space and is fully equipped for making anything from that 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 wireless Internet access and SKY TV. The villa and apartment have been painstakingly renovated with the comfort of guests in mind, and updated with 21st century luxuries.

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 away is a private beach where you can swim in the clear Mediterranean waters, lie in the sun or enjoy the shade of an umbrella. 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.

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 under an hour.

BASE FOR EXPLORATION:

Located halfway between Rome and Naples, the villa is also just an hour or so by train from Pompeii, or Herculaneum, or Capri, or the Amalfi coast, or the Abruzzi mountains, 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 yet enjoy 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.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. Fresh 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.

Guestbook comments from the owner
The very best place I've ever stayed by a wide margin. Jennifer was helpful before we left with her treasure trove of info about the area we would visit.once we got there,(my wife,brother and I) ,we were very happy with all things Gaeta! Kiki is absolutely my favorite host ever. She went above and beyond any expectations. The villa was exactly as pictured and the area was peaceful. We would go back in a moment. Thank you Kiki for a wonderful time that I will never forget!

History Beauty And More

  • 5 of 5
Villa Accetta was a magical setting and provided for a perfect get away. Walking through the gates of the villa you are welcomed by a charming courtyard and awesome views across the Gulf of Gaeta. The villa is built on Roman ruins and incorporates some of the ancient artifacts into it's construction. The scale of time surrounds you. Our stay was in apartment studio No. 4. It was cozy, clean and provided for all of our needs. We also had the pleasure of visiting most of the other apartments, all of which were very impressive. The villa location proved to be very convenient, providing walking access to restaurants, groceries, and bus stops for travel to nearby cities and the train station in Formia. The villa's host was friendly, informative and accommodating. I would recommend a stay at Villa Accetta to family and friends.

The accommodations are clean and spacious with wonderful views of Gaeta across the water. The owners were very helpful and responsive to our needs.

A glorious week in Gaeta at Villa Accetta

  • 5 of 5
I was part of a traveling group of 13 adventurers from Florida. We stayed at Villa Accetta for 6 glorious days in the early spring season. The accommodations for our group were all lovely, large, clean and with a stunning view of the Gulf of Gaeta.

Kiki and Ugo were the ultimate hosts, ready to help if needed. They shared their love of the area and its rich history. If you’re lucky, Kiki may share her Spaghetti Puttanesca recipe.

The villa was a perfect spot to take day trips north and south to Rome, Pompeii, Naples and Sperlogna. Public transportation and even private drivers were easily accessible and made our travels extra special. The restaurants in Formia and Gaeta were splendid, always serving fresh ingredients and lots of fresh local seafood. And the local wines, fresh local buffalo mozzarella and Gaeta olives are to die for! Some nights we cooked at the villa. The kitchens were equipped with everything we needed to prepare and serve fresh food. We could eat inside in the apartment dining rooms or out on the spacious balconies – definitely a treat! All in all, I’d say my stay at Villa Accetta was just perfect.

I’ll be back!

Relaxing apartment in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I staying in at this villa in the later part of September 2013. We had arrived from Florence and the next week we were going to Rome, so we chose this spot to be the place for some quiet "down" time in between the two cities. The villa is situated on a major road which makes it easy to catch a bus into town and also within walking distance of two grocery stores and a few restaurants. When we started to inquire about the property, our emails were answered promptly by Jennifer. She gave us lots of information and directions, which were very helpful with our plans and to arrive easily.
Once we were there, Kiki (the owner) was on site most of the time and also very helpful. The taxis are quite expensive so we used the buses most of the time (the bus stop is very closeby and easy to figure out.) The apartment was clean, exceptionally comfortable and we loved the outside terrace overlooking the ocean! The kitchen is well equipped and the apartment is spacious and nicely decorated. The private beach is just a short walk and the water was still warm in late September. We had fun lounging on the chaises, looking for shells and sea glass.The outside showers were so refreshing! Kiki's son gave us a tour of the underground caves at the villa that go back to ancient times (fascinating!) We also spent one day taking the train to Pompei (two hours south) and that was a very worthwhile, amazing place to visit.
We enjoyed discovering the many historic buildings, Serapo Beach, churches, and even a castle. Very few people spoke English, so we felt totally immersed in the Italian culture - which is what we were hoping for. The property is unique, relaxing and has amazing, breathtaking views. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Accetta and are happy to highly recommend it!

Villa Accetta is a jewel on the Gulf of Gaeta

  • 5 of 5
Villa Accetta felt like home after a long day of sight-seeing. The apartment was very clean and comfy and the grounds were gorgeous. You can get to the heart of Gaeta or Formia (where the train station is) in minutes on the bus, so there's no need for a car.

See my blog post for additional details about Villa Accetta, Gaeta, and neighboring towns: http://margaretreyesdempsey.wordpress.com/2011/08/17/travel-gaeta-italy-in-october/

Thank you, Kiki, Ugo, and Luca for your hospitality. I will definitely be back to visit someday.

The Ulysses Riviera, on the Mediterranean Sea halfway between Rome and Naples, is an area of breathtaking beauty and historical importance. Many of the great families of Republican and Imperial Rome built summer villas on this coast, and the wealthy families of Rome continue to do so to this day. The Gulf of Gaeta offers water sports from swimming to sailing, snorkeling and sail-boarding. The surrounding mountains offer hiking opportunities. Or, if you choose, you can lie by the sea, soak up the sun, and relax. The two towns adjacent to the villa, Gaeta and Formia, offer wonderful restaurants that serve seafood caught daily in the bay. The towns also have extensive Roman ruins to explore, along with medieval churches and the splendid Turk's Grotto on Monte Orlando. Rome and Naples are about an hour away by train, making Villa Accetta an excellent home base for exploration of the cities, Pompeii, Amalfi, Sperlonga and more, without having to deal with city traffic.
