Unbelievably Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough about this beautiful villa owned by wonderful people. Diego and his parents, Luigi and Suzie, were absolutely wonderful hosts. We pulled up to this beautiful gated entrance to the villa, which is situated on the mountain a few miles from Formia. The property is full with olive trees, Lemon trees, Lime trees, Fig trees and Palm trees just to name a few. The Villa is a spacious 3 bedroom, 3 full bath, with a large open concept kitchen, dining and living room. There are multiple sitting areas around the house to enjoy a snack or bottle of vino. The pool was a beautiful natural pool carved out of the natural rock, equipped with its own waterfall and pristine clean! The view is incredible as you look down to the sea and the city of Gaetta in the distance. You are in your own private bit of heaven occasionally hearing the church bells resonating down the mountainside from the near by village of Maranola. Diego and his Parents graced us with a wonderful basket of fruits, vegetables, and of course Luigis fabulous olives, all grown on the property. We can't say enough about this Villa and its owners. all we can say is Thank you for making our honeymoon an epic experience! You can not go wrong by choosing this Villa to spend your holiday at.

Jerry and Hilda Fani

P.S. See you next July!

Fantastic Villa & Pool in a lovely quiet location

  • 5 of 5

Lovely quiet and very clean villa located above Formia with a fab pool which our two children aged 10 & 13 spent most of the week in. We spent most evenings sampling gelato in the local towns of Formia and Sperlonga. Good location for Pompeii and Vesuvius ( about 2 hours drive.) we would definitely love to stay in the villa again.

Excellent House in a quiet location

  • 5 of 5

A great house in a quiet village up in the hills above Formia. Located within the owner's gated property it offers great privacy. The owners house is close - but you wouldn't know it, except for the basket of fresh vegetables and home made pizza they gave us. The house offers good space with 2 generous double rooms and the mez if required. With outdoor tables and seating on 3 sides you're spoilt for choice. The gardens of the house are lovely and clearly well kept. The pool isn't fenced (so might not be suitable for young children) but is great fun with features from the surrounding rock. Shaded parking a bonus in the heat aswell. Local area offers some great attractions with Gaeta and the national park close by. A walk to the top of Mt Redentore (overlooking the house) is highly recommended.

Relaxing, Refreshing, and Absolutely Gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 amazing days in Diego's beautiful home here in the hills overlooking Formia. The house is clean and well-maintained. But what you don't see from the pictures is how beautiful the area is around the home. Surrounded by lemon, olive, and apricot trees and floral bushes of every color, you can see right down through the valley to the town and the sea beyond. The church bells chime in the distance, the waterfall in the pool calms, and the melodies of various birds fall on the ear. We could easily have spent our entire month in Europe in this one location. Easily. However, it was also a great base for our travels to Rome, Naples, and the Amalfi Coast. We had no difficulty reaching the home by car, and train service is nearby in Formia. It was truly an oasis for us and a great start to our European adventure. When we return to Italy, we will return to this place. Diego is a gracious and unobtrusive host who is quick to respond to any requests. Our two teenage children loved playing in the clear, spacious pool, and I enjoyed cooking in the adequate kitchen. We also enjoyed driving the 7 minutes down to Formia to eat gelato at Lavezzi's (the best according to Diego--we agree!). We hate to leave this beautiful place.

A perfect place for a family holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Our family(2adults+ kids 2y, 5y) spent a wonderful week in this house in Formia in September 2013. The place and the house were even more beautiful than in the pictures on this website! Owners lived next to the house but it was fine, they welcomed us with some home-baked cake and were very hostile and helpful. The pool was beutiful, our kids loved it. There were terraces with nice furniture on three sides of the house and the pool was right next to the house. The house was cosy, clean and well-equipped. All pieces of furniture were high-quality and the interior was fully done with italian style. There were shops and restaurants in 5-10minutes away by car and the owners took us to see them nearby. We also went to see cities nearby: Nice beach in Gaeta 5km away and Sperlonga half an hour away. The city of Formia wasn't really special but this house with a beautiful view from high up the mountain, beautiful interior and really nice private pool area made our holiday perfect. The only thing that I missed was that sunrise and sunset could not be seen because of the mountains. We loved this place, for sure we'll return!

Superb!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely holiday here in the hills above Formia. The house was full of character but with all the modern amenities a family could want, both main bedrooms were en-suite and there was an additional bathroom for the sleeping loft. The house has wi-fi which was a huge bonus. Clean, well stocked for those who want to self cater every day (proper cooker, hob, coffee machine, microwave, BBQ and enough crockery and cultlery to cater for a dozen). It is deceptively spacious, 4 adults and 3 children didn't feel like a crowd and there are lots of lovely outside spaces (3 terraces with dining tables and chairs) which allowed us to enjoy the weather any time of day. The pool is a real highlight, part formed out of the natural rock in the garden and enjoying a lovely view over the hills and village of Maranola. Kids need to be supervised though as it is deep in places. The owners live in an adjacent house but that didnt impact our privacy, the holiday villa is fairly self contained and it is good to know the owner is on hand if ever there was a problem. They were so friendly an welcoming and have lived and worked in the region for years so are full of tips and advice on where to go and where to eat. We were able to sample home grown tomatoes and cucumber, and home made marmalade which were all amazing. Security isnt an issue, the site is fenced with remote control gates and isnt overlooked. Maranola (where the villa is) is a lovely little medieval village with stunning views over the gulf of gaeta and the route up the the christ the redeemer statue on the mountainside above (not for the faint hearted, single car track and then walking). A great base for beaches (the stretch between Gaeta and Sperlonga is best) and an easy drive to Gaeta (go to the broken mountain), Formia (Roman Cisterns) Minturna (roman ruins), Monte Cassino, (the abbey) Pompei, the Pastena Caves, Naples and beyond, all of which we took in on our trip. A car is a must have but with it there is plenty enough to fill two weeks. Highly recommend this villa. In this region of Italy we did find it quite hard to get information about tourist sites (opening times, locations) because it just doesnt seem to be visited by many international touristis which is a shame. Make sure you prepare your days out and know exactly where you are going because the road signs wont be much help!

All in all a great trip, lovely villa, great owners which has left us with many wonderful memories.
