During the years, I tried with my team in ItalyHomeXP & Mediterranea Property Owners to develop my dream:

Me and my team test every house we have or we manage to ascertain our quality standards. We carefully listen to the voice of our guests to learn everyday how to improve our services and maintain fair prices and conditions.

We a registered company that pays taxes in Italy… so no fake property owners and bad surprises at arrival… booking online a temporary home from individuals every day more dangerous… no temporary workers to collect keys or clean… we have only permanent motivated staff that that take care of the properties and our precious guest with passion.

Beatrice Tedeschi-Schmidt purchased this villa in 2010

Why Beatrice Tedeschi-Schmidt chose Formia

Only 3km by the sea, with a stunning view. Out of confusion with a lovely fully equipped garded (including a lounge area and an outside Jacuzzi pool that can accommodate up to 6 persons.

This Villa is a rare pearl. Stylish with fine personality as no other in the area is a mix of ultimate architecture style mixed with a tasteful Italian character.

Wide and panoramic terrace overlooking 180° of Mediterranean sea, exposed to a delicious sea breeze, and 180° of Mountain (1252 meters). Equipped with sunbeds, table and chairs, barbecue, big umbrella and amazing 25meters pool!

The private garden multi-area fully equipped is the favourite area of our guest. Relaxing breakfasts, tasty lunch, big BBQ ad night with the local seafood.

The position to have it also as headquarters for daily visits is incredible. Conveniently near the train line half-way between Rome and Naples. It is about 60 minutes by express train to either city, making it a perfect base for day trips. Dozens of sites (medieval towns, islands, historic sits, nature) to visits in 20minutes by car.

The position is also locally strategic… The beach 2 minutes away, the town centre at 3,7km… Hundreds of interesting sites to explore, visit and taste in just 20 minutes…

You will receive the home manual that include a local advises and Italian advises sections that out of the useful information on the house and tips to arrange you trip and enjoy Italy, provide you lots of ideas on how to spend and arrange your stay and visits.

What makes this villa unique

Renting a villa under the Tuscan sun has become big business in Italy’s rolling north country. So big that the lovely family in the villa next door is as likely to be from London, Munich or Tokyo as to have lived in the Umbrian hills for generations. For those who like their Italy a bit more Italian, the southern half of the boot holds many treasures, and few of them have been discovered, far less overrun by tourists.

One such marvel is Formia, Gaeta and Minturno, small, ancient towns on its own Gulf in the Mediterranean, sitting conveniently near the train line half-way between Rome and Naples. It is about 60 minutes by express train to either city, making it a perfect base for day trips. What it also offers are enough ancient ruins, medieval alleyways and old churches to keep any visitor enthralled for weeks, without so much as a glance at the tourist-clogged cities to the north and south. You will deal with me and or my team that with passion supports me to provide you the best service!

With us you have a reliable counterpart. You can be sure to do not have bad surprises… . We can accept payments with bank transfer, cash, credit cards and paypal!

All this of this is not possible to be found from a single property owner nor from a real estate agency… .

That is why me and other property owners pooled up our efforts together.

Would you like to have some nights in Rome as well? We have several comfortable houses in Rome city center that you can reserve in the same time with this one?

Just ask and we will send you the best option!

Village vacation.

  • 2 of 5

The villa is located in a remote area. However, this does not exclude the presence of loud noises disturbing sleep. Permanent night dogs barking and whining cats very disappointed. Just inside the villa are always present cats in an amount of up to 5 pieces. Two cats live permanently and beg for food, fighting with other cats coming. Cookware demanded find normal pots and pans, most damaged Teflon coating. Plates normal and in sufficient quantity. The view from the terrace is excellent! Grill on the terrace was not cleaned, disappointed. Fireplace in the house was also not cleaned. Noise insulation in the rooms to put it mildly weak - in the farthest room with the door closed is clearly audible as the gas is ignited ELECTRONIC. Be alert - in the contract limit the amount paid for electricity. We did not pay attention and were as a result of a smaller security deposit - upset. The whole villa is a stretch of two points out of five.

Great spot to stay on the hill side in Formia.

  • 4 of 5

It was our first time in this area and we, two couples stayed from Sept 2 - 17, 2016 in this villa while touring the area as well as taking the train to Rome, Naples and Pompeii. It was a good location to stay, to be able to get to see a lot of the southern part of Italy. We needed our rental car but found using the train for further distances or going into larger cities was perfect. We enjoyed our time on the upper patio as you could see the ocean and sometimes even see the islands on clear days.

We meet the owner and her son one day while she came by to check the pool and do the watering for the garden. We enjoyed our visit and got to know more about the area and were able to talk to them about the two resident cats. The cats were very friendly and my husband enjoyed feeding them during our stay.

We had a great vacation and are glad we had the chance to stay at this very clean, comfortable villa with air conditioning as it was very hot during our stay.

Poorly maintained with lots of safety issues

  • 1 of 5

upon arrival at the property the door frame collapsed nearly injuring my son, I raised this issue with the maintenance staff but no action was taken, the shower door was handing off so the bathroom was constantly flooded again no action taken by staff, several other door frames were loose so I had to remove them so they would fall off, the shed door in the garden collapsed nearly injuring my wife, several cabinets were loose off the wall waiting to fall off, the fridge did not work properly, there as no kettle provided , and to top it all the landlord never refunded our deposit for bedding and linen , to be honest we were all just glad to get away from the awful property
