100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Another amazing stay
What can I say, this was my third stay at the apartment and I will be booking again definitely.
Hosts are fantastic and are there if you need them but leave you to get on with it.
The apartment has everything you would need for a short break or indeed for a far longer stay.
It is near 2 major supermarkets. There is a bakery and fresh fruit and vegetable shop on the same street. Also the best geletaria in Formia is on the same street so be prepared for serious temptation!
If you want an experience of living like a local in the best apartment I’ve personally stayed in then I recommend you stay here 😊
The right what we needed!! :)
We (me, my 2 yo son, my niece and my parents) stayed in the apartment in september 2018 and was left with very good impression. The apartment itself is very big and spacious, there are a lot of rooms and light, it looks very authentic which created a special italian mood :) Equipped with all necessary so we felt ourselves like home.
Lots of small shops are very near and the supermarket is 7 min walk. The beach is not far away, you can get there on foot but we used car as the way there is not easy cause of my small kid :)
Thanks for the review and the nice words that you have spent!!!
It was a pleasure to know and to have you in my house....I hope see you again
Greetings and best wishes for new year
An amazing apartment with a wonderful, kind host
This was our second stay and we are about to book a third. We had never been back to the same place in the world twice until staying here.
Formia is a typical Italian town with so many shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. There is a large supermarket less than 10 minutes walk away and local shops to buy fruit and vegetables, bread and delicatessen provisions on the same street as the apartment. Also on that same road is a great pizzeria and a gelateria - both visited too many times for the diet!
This visit we took the ferry to Ponza island from Formia port. The island was beautiful. Also recommended are Gaeta and Sperlonga.
Regarding the apartment itself, I have never stayed in a better apartment. It is so large and spacious with so much room to spread out and relax. The kitchen has everything you need to cook a large meal for a family and 2 bathrooms is a great bonus.
And our host Susi could not have been nicer, from the welcome we received after a long day in Rome to helping us with the return journey and so much more. You are left alone to enjoy your holiday but it is comforting to know there is someone only a message away who will help with whatever you need.
I can not recommend the apartment enough. My only concern is that as more and more people experience it then it will become increasingly difficult to book!!
Thanks for the review and the nice words that you have spent !
I was very ☺to have you in our home the first time and much more the 2nd time!
It means that our effort to make feel the foreign families part of the town (and the community) is giving good results.
It's just about creating a real cultural exchange and not just a turistic experience.
It usually takes energy and time to me but it's a satisfaction to see such appreciation of our work and project!
See you next time and let's prepare for the trekking of "Monte Redentore"
This apartment is massive and beautifully decorated in traditional style and in a fantastic location
The pictures on this website don't do this property enough justice. It is absolutely huge with 3 double bedrooms each with air conditioning and ample storage space. It has 2 big bathrooms, one at each end of the main bedroom corridor. The main lounge/dinner again is huge and tastefully decorated and equipped with large dinning table and chairs and ample comfortable seating in the TV area. There is a lovely balcony off the lounge which overlooks the street and is great for relaxing and people watching. The kitchen is well equipped with appliances and every utensil you need. There is a 2nd small balcony off the kitchen with large built in clothes line. The whole apartment was fresh and beautifully decorated and clean. Susi and Francesca met us at the door to show us around the apartment and help us settle in. They gave us info on the local area and exchanged phone numbers and were always available to give assistance or guidance if required. The apartment is very centrally located in Formia being only 7 mins walk from Train Station/bus terminal. It is only 5mins from the Main High street and Harbour. The 2 main beaches are to either side of the harbour part and are about 30min walk or a short bus ride. Our favourite being the Beach to the East of town towards San Pietro which is protected by rock islands and very safe for small children being shallow, warm and calm. This town is very Italian and popular with Italian Holidaymakers and it helps to have some basic Italian or Goggle translator to get by as English is not widely spoken which we loved and spent many fun filled minutes trying to interpret menus each night to decide what to order. There are lots of small cafes and pizzerias dotted all around town and also a handful of bigger Mediterranean/Italian/Seafood restaurants around and our favourite 3 were Oliva e I'ingenere, Vizi & Virtu and Lancora. The neighbouring town of Gaeta is a 20 min bus ride away and boasts a massive stretch of beautiful sandy beach and well worth a visit. There is a ancient Roman Cistern in the old town and short fascinating tours are offered in the evenings. We stayed for a week and chose Formia because of its central location between Rome and Naples and access to train station which we chose as our primary transport option for day visits to Rome and Pompeii which were both only an hour away, and proved to be amazing educational and fun days out. Overall a fantastic holiday and an amazing apartment with great hosts

The apartment is very spacious, clean and well located. Walking distance to shops, cafes and grocery stores. As well as to the parking (not included). The neighbourhood and city are very nice. Nice beaches close by (walk, bus or car). You can't go wrong. I recommend it!
it was nice to meet you and have you at home, you were perfect guests!
I hope to see you soon in Formia
Spacious apartment--great for a family
We had a fantastic visit to this lovely and spacious apartment in Formia. Francesca was easy to communicate with online. Susi provided us with a warm and friendly welcome to Formia and showed us around the apartment. She also had fresh tomatoes, mozzarella, olive oil and wine waiting for us. Basil is growing on the porch. She had maps available labeled with places to visit, eat, shop, etc.--that was extremely helpful and we appreciated her suggestions and advice. The apartment itself is spacious and clean. We enjoyed all of the space and our two kids enjoyed having their own bedrooms (there are three separate bedrooms--one master suite and two bedrooms, both with double beds and the second bathroom down the hall). There is closet/storage space available in each large bedroom. The two bathrooms are also quite large. The kitchen is well-stocked with various cookware and it's nice to have tea/coffee on either of the two porches and have two different dining tables to choose from. The apartment feels very safe and we also appreciated the AC in the bedrooms and the washing machine. The apartment is just a 5 minute walk from the train station and old town and 15 from the beach. It is right in the center of town so right in the middle of all the shops and restaurants. This is convenient, but also means you have the noise of the city, especially early morning (but our kids slept right through it). It's easy to visit other places from Formia either by train or bus. Susi, thank you for your generous hospitality! We highly recommend this apartment.
Dear Lisa thank you for the review and for the nice words you have spent.You were perfect guests!!! it was a pleasure to meet you and have you at home .
I hope see you soon again!
