About Annapaola

Hello, I'm Paola. I have many interests and passions: art, history and especially the decor and the cuisine that I share with my husband, great chef, he loves the traditions of our land. We have traveled a lot and now we have decided to offer our guests a part of our large house.

Annapaola purchased this villa in 1980

Why Annapaola chose Formia

My husband and I have built with so much love our home and choosing the place since enchanted by the landscape. We have raised our children who are now grown up and have their own families. The house has become too big for the two of us so we split and became a semidetached house and with pleasure we share it with our guests who live in a part completely independent

What makes this villa unique

My house with its wanderful garden ia an oasis of peace and natural beauties. It is located in a residential area on a sweet hill with a wonderful view. the house is very near to the center town but it is reccomended a car.

Lovely house for a family stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this house late April for 4 nights and had great time. Paola is a wonderful host who made us very welcome and helped us with everything we needed. As we were traveling with our 1,5 year old son she arranged a baby cot and a high chair. The house has a nice small garden facing the ocean and the views are magnificent. The house is quite high up the mountains, though not far from the city center and beach. You could easily walk the distance (approx 2km), but the mountain is steep so consider the walk back home as a training. We didn't take the walk as it would have been to much effort to push the baby carriage up the mountain,. Nevertheless I took a run up the mountain and it was good training.

A palace in the hills of Formia

  • 5 of 5

The photographs of Il Casale do not begin to do justice to the most incredible view and grand palatial feel of the property. It was the perfect base to explore but there was a lot to see locally should you wish to stay put. I loved the cook’s kitchen with its wealth of pots, pans, coffee makers and recipe books. My wife loved the veranda at night with the twinkling lights of the bay and a good book. Thank you Paula and Francesco for your friendship, advice and great linguistic skills! We really hope to see you again.

Spacious and cosy house, great view to the sea

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 2 weeks in this Villa.

The house is great, beatiful and specious for 8 people. The view to the sea and Gaeta city is amazing. During hot days it's quite cool inside. Kids liked the garden, cats, hide-and-seek in the house and around, and tree's climbing a lot ))))

Paola is very nice and helpful lady, she gave us many good advices and recommendations.

It's difficult to go to the sea from the house by foot, because the house is located upheel, it's better to have a car, especially if you are with kids. The same for the shopping.

The area has very good transportation links with Rome and Napoli.

I would certainly recommend this place to everybody!

Nice, quiet and most charming

  • 5 of 5

This is a house with history and certainly a lot of stories to tell.

Spacious enough for eight people, a beautifull wiev and a cozy terrasse and garden.

The hosts are living at the same property, which normally constitutes a certain downside, but in this case, it fits naturally. Paula and her son are very hospitable and friendly and make you feel welcome.

Formia is a minor city at the coast. There are excellent rail connections to Rome and Naples. A large shopping center ("Panorama") ensures your survival, if not the fish market and the many "Gastronomia" shops can do it alone.

Many thanks for a memorable and succesfull stay!

We and our children (9 and 13 years) have been satisfied, resting here. It is wonderful, quiet, scenic place. The house is beautiful, large and very comfortable. There is everything you need for a long staying. Cozy kitchen and terrace, perfect sea view allows to enjoy dinner with your family. Hostess, Anna-Paola, and her family are very friendly, attentive and hospitable. Anna-Paola presented us homemade olive oil, which was the best we ever tasted in Italy. It is perfect place for relaxing holiday and short trips to neighboring towns (Gaeta, Sperlonga! etc.). Also it is not a problem to visit Rome, Naples and Pompeii. We stayed in different places during this trip, but Paola’s house was the best of all.
