Overview

About the property

a 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom very nice house with breathtaking see view

The property is located in a typical mediterranean green area on the top of a hill with a breathtaking view, surrounded by a park of olive trees, almonds and prickly pears. Set in a peaceful area , the villa is only 15 minutes away from the center of Terracina (and the beach) and at a walkable distance from the Temple of Jupiter Anxur.

The large garden is completely enclosed and looks onto the Circeo Gulf. It includes a swimming-pool area with a large sunbathing panoramic terrace with an outdoor shower, loungers and umbrellas. A heart shaped terrace for al fresco dining in the evening, is located close to the main entrance of the house, equipped with garden furniture.

The accommodation has 3 double bedrooms, each with an ensuite bathroom and two with a shower. The large living room includes a dining area for up to 8 guests, with access to a fully equipped kitchen. Decorated with hand made ceramics from Vietri, the kitchen has several facilities including dishwasher, washing machine, a six-place gas cooker and a very large oven. A big fridge and an adequate freezer are also provided. All the rooms have large windows offering a beautiful view of the Mediterranean sea. In the clear days the Islands of Ponza, Palmarola, Ventotene, Ischia and even Capri are often visible in the landscape through the windows. A free of charge private parking is provided. A bottle of Olive oil from the property is also provided free of charge

Terracina is a pleasant seaside resort in the south of the Lazio region, between Rome and Naples. It was an important port on the Roman Appian Way, and the site of a major temple to Jupiter. Nowadays the modern town spreads out on the plain below the hills, along a wide sandy beach which attracts many summer visitors.

The modern part of Terracina is pleasant, with wide tree-lined boulevards leading to the beach west of the port. The sea and the sand are the town's main attraction for many of its Italian summer visitors. Ferries depart from the port for the Pontine Islands. A boat-lined canal leads to the harbour from the old bus station area, passing the fish-hall where crates are loaded with fresh fish, and wizened old salts sit and chat on a terrace.

For more charm and historical interest, however, head for the Centro Storico, the old part of town. The heart of historical Terracina is Piazza del Municipio, a pretty piazza containing paving stones from the Roman Forum, a crumbling archway, the town cathedral, the headquarters of the town council and the archaeological museum. Close by you can also see an ancient paved stretch of the Appian Way.

Terracina's most unusual and striking site is the Temple of Jupiter Anxur. Anxur was the ancient Volscian name for the town; Jupiter has generally been assumed to be the deity to whom the sanctuary was dedicated. The main part of the temple is gone, but the impressive vaulted base can be seen for miles, and no visitor to Terracina should miss a trip to the fascinating hilltop site with its superb views.

Terracina is reachable from Rome or from Naples and can be managed as a day trip from either city.The town does have its own railway station on a branch line, but it's only served by a couple of train services every day. If you are relying on public transport, you will find the frequent Cotral bus services more useful. For a speedier and more comfortable journey, however, the best method is to combine rail and bus travel. First you should take a train to Monte S. Biagio station on the Rome - Naples railway line. Only the slower train services - approximately hourly - stop at the station. Cotral buses to Terracina stop outside Monte S. Biagio station (generally on the far side of the road). Bus tickets cost €1,30 and can be bought at the bar inside the station (as can rail tickets). The bus journey takes fifteen minutes - look out of the window to see interesting ruins dotted along this section of the Appian Way.

A beautiful Villa with incredible views.

  • 5 of 5

If what you want is a well appointed villa with incredible views in easy reach of Roma and the coast then this really has to be first on your list. The owner, Andrea, who lives nearby was incredibly welcoming and will really make you feel part of the family.

We travelled with our 2 children aged 12 and 8 and they loved the experience, the pool area is fantastic as it has a diving board (could not keep them away!) and we are still enjoying the home produced Lemon Marmalade and Olive Oil that we received on arrival. A real find....grab it before someone else does!

All our thanks to Andrea for a great, unforgettable holiday (as a bonus his wife speaks French!...my Italian keeps slipping into Spanish)

A well designed and attractive property set in lovely terraced gardens overlooking great views .

  • 5 of 5

We were welcomed by the lovely Louisa who prepared a supper of pasta and salad and wine,

Very welcome after a long journey. Louisa explained every thing about the villa and gave us a bottle

of olive oil and a jar of marmalade, both the produce of the gardens. Andrea and his lovely

family visited us and made sure we had every thing we needed. We were a family of five and were

celebrating my Husband's 80th birthday. He had wanted to visit Rome and Pompei, Terracina

is about halfway between, about a 2 hour drive to Rome and just a little more to Pompei and

Vesuvious. For other days Terracina is full of lovely shops and street cafe's, back at the villa

breakfast in the sun on the terrace, a good way to start the day and BB'Q'S in the adjoining

terrace a great ending to another perfect day, a glass of wine as it grows dark, watching the

fireflys/gloworms flit about. The weather was good with only a couple of overcast days and

a shower of rain or two. Villa Ai' Galli is on a fairly steep slope but the rustic stone steps and

the the landscaping all add to the charm of this lovely holiday get away, we will be back

health permitting, thank you Andrea for a wonderful stay, we wish you all the best for all

you do in the future

Patricia and the rest of the Barrett family

Stunning location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful house with a fantastic view, and all the conveniences, including clothes washer and dryer. The house itself is very attractive in a modern cottage style. Terracina is a wonderful town with shops, restaurants, people out on the streets at night, and the best beach in the world. You will have to drive from the town to the house, it is too far to walk. But the trade-off is the view and the refreshing breeze.

UNA VILLA MAGICA !!!

  • 5 of 5

La casa é stupenda e ha una vista mozzafiato sul mare.

La piscina é grande e sempre pulita. Andrea, il padrone di casa, é una persona amichevole, disponibile e aperta. Accoglie i suoi ospiti con una bottiglia di olio, prodotta da lui. Abbiamo dormito benissimo perché tutte le finestre e le porte della casa sono protette con delle zanzariere. Inoltre si raggiunge la città vecchia in pochi minuti. La ci sono bellissimi negozi per fare la spesa, frutta, verdura, carne e pesce di alta qualità. Tra l'altro nella casa é disponibile un grande barbecue per fantastiche grigliate.

Ritorneremo di sicuro !!!!

Stunning, magical, an oasis.

  • 5 of 5

There were 6 of us that stayed in this home; myself, my husband, and our 4 children. The home accommodated us nicely. Andrea was there when we arrived. He showed us the property (which was incredible; beyond words really) and the home. He gave us a bottle of olive oil made from the trees on the property as well as a jar of marmalade made from orange trees on the property. The home sits high up on the mountain. My family and I truly felt we were in paradise; we were outside most of the time, sitting by the pool or at one of the various outdoor tables. Terraccina is a lively town. We do not speak Italian, and most in Terraccina do not speak English, but everyone we encountered was lovely and kind; not off put in the least. Thank-you Galli's for allowing us into your home. We will always have fond memories of our stay. I hope to one day return!
