Overview

Gaeta Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, sofa bed (Sleeps 6)

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 de-stressing 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), a 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 and dining room, a well-equipped kitchen, and an extensive terrace overlooking the sea complete 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 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.

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 excellent local restaurants within easy 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. 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 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 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.

About Jennifer

My family has owned this villa for generations, and 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 guests, 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.

Jennifer purchased this apartment in 1900

What makes this apartment unique

Sitting on the terrace gazing over the Gulf of Gaeta offers me a serenity unmatched by any other place. 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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our stay in Villa Accetta was sublime. The sea just outside our windows, the food in the area restaurants, the convenient location for exploring Rome and Naples and the island of Ponza, made for an unforgettable experience.

A bit of heaven

  • 5 of 5

I love Italy, and I love the south of Italy particularly, and I love Gaeta most of all. The history and pageantry of Rome is an hour away, as is the hustle and energy of Naples, but for me the ideal stay is walking the ancient alleyways of this medieval town and discovering something new every day. And the best base for all of this to happen is at Villa Accetta, whether its a quick hop on the bus to get the worlds best gelato or a 10 minute walk to pick up wine made just up the mountain in preparation for a relaxed sunset on the patio. I will come to Villaa Accetta as long as I can.

Villa Accetta

  • 5 of 5

I had written a review when we got home from our trip but posted it on the wrong site and just noticed it. This was our first stop in Italy in 2012 and when Kiki opened the door to the patio area, we were thrilled. What a lovely area to sit by the ocean. The apartment itself was well supplied and comfortable but we spent most of our time there on the patio. Kiki was the nicest and most helpful hostess of our rental owners. I truly enjoyed her company and willingness to help us. We stayed in 3 vrbo places and this was by far the best. Thanks so much, Kiki! Ray, Deb and friend Dave

Relaxing on a terrace with a view

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Villa Accetta let us savor the glorious opportunity of sitting on a terrace overlooking the Mediterranean Sea while we sipped excellent (and incredibly inexpensive) local wine and indulged in delicious local cheeses and olives and bread. When we could tear ourselves away from the view and the conversation, we hopped a train to Rome for a day spent sightseeing, and a couple of days later a train to Pompeii. Each trip began with cappuccino on the terrace in the morning and ended with a glass of wine on the terrace in the evening. No better way to see Italy. We brought a group of writers with us, all of whom were inspired and invigorated by the rich and ancient history, the wonderful meals and the beauty of the area. Kiki made our stay a joy from beginning to end, starting with a welcome spread of goodies for hungry travelers, to suggestions on restaurants and sights. It will be remembered always. Thank you Kiki.
