Why Andrea Gallo chose Terracina
Me and my wife loved Terracina since we were very young. Now we have this property that grow up together with our family. We sincerely consider this place one of the most beautiful places in the world.
What makes this Villa unique
the spectacular views of the sea, the promontory of Circeo and the Islands, who never get tired of seeing
Pool / Spa
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Gorgeous views, gorgeous place
The photos on the website really don't do this modern, well designed, spotlessly clean, light and airy villa any justice - and you really have to see the views first hand to believe them.
Andrea and his daughter Margherita welcomed us so warmly at the start of our stay, and were always available if we needed anything.
Terracing is a great town/resort with a lovely old town, harbour and great beaches - but it is very hard to tear yourself away from the terraces, the games/gym area and the fantastic pool terrace!
Our family had a really special week here, it's perfect.
Thank you so much Howard for your warm words - it was such a pleasure for us having you and your family as our guests! We really hope to see you again!
Greetings to all the family from Andrea and Margherita
My family and I had a wonderful stay at this beautiful villa with outstanding views. The welcome from Andrea and his family was excellent and we were made to feel at home. The coastal views from the property were a real highlight for us and we enjoyed many evenings on the terrace with the bbq. The swimming pool and games area mean that you can easily spend days at the villa without venturing through the gates.
The pizzeria down the road is just a couple of minutes walk away which is handy. Terracina itself is a really nice town with lots of beaches and the Old Town is well worth a visit. The property is also within easy striking distance of Rome and Naples by train and Ponza by boat, which all provided good days out.
Thank you Andrea for a lovely holiday. We hope to return!
Thank you Matthew for your visit and your very kind words of appreciation! We loved to have you and your family as our guests this summer and really hope to see you again in the next future. You and your family are the best guests one can imagine! Please , come back to visit us again !
Andrea and Marilia
We stood at villa 2 fine weeks. Perfectly planned big territory with a set of plants.The quiet, lonely place near the town. Magic sea view. Villa is well equipped, especially fitness corner. Owner is very hospitable and attentive.
Andrea, thanks for our Italian vacation.
Special thanks from our dog Shaggy. He misses the girlfriend Klara.
it was really a pleasure to have you and your wife as well as your lovely small dog, as our guest! I hope to see you again in the next future!
All the best,
A beautiful Villa with incredible views.
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 .
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

UNA VILLA MAGICA !!!
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 !!!!
Grazie Petra! e complimenti per il tuo Italiano! Spero di rivedervi con il vostro simpatico Rudy anche la prossima estate: Ti ricordi la foto con lui sul trampolino che guarda l'acqua della piscina? A presto!
Villa 'Ai Galli' is a refined house to rent in Terracina, between Rome and Naples. 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.
