About the property

2 large bedrooms,bathroom-his & hers basins with 360° Mountains views, within driving distance of Cassino, Monte Cassino Abbey, Gaeta, Formia beaches

The location of the apartment offers countless opportunities to explore Italian culture, set in the quiet, lush green hills & only a short distance from Cassino town and local beaches. Enjoy breathtaking views of the Abbey of Montecassino & surrounding mountains. An ideal base for exploring the Amalfi Coast, Naples, Rome, Pompei, Abruzzo National Park & Fiuggi, famous for its spa and golf course. And a great location for enjoying the stunning beaches in Gaeta, Formia & Scauri. Golf courses are located in Fiuggi and Isernia. Skiing facilities are located at Roccaraso and Campocatino. The property is within easy reach of connecting roads and train station. Cassino was the scene of the bloodiest battle of the Second World War, thousands of soldiers lost their lives here in the bitter winter of 1943-44. The place is therefore a true “cradle” of the history of Cassino and its people. Cassino is renowned for its university and home to a very important monastery, the Abbey of Montecassino.

About Maria and Derek

Maria grew up in the nearby Medieval village of San Vittore del Lazio where each year on 8/9/10 August the Festa Medievale is celebrated. Maria and Derek built this home to celebrate their retirement after Maria spent almost 35 years living in the UK. Maria has extensive knowledge of the local area and can make your holiday a true Italian experience. Derek will ensure your BBQ and pool are ready and give you great advise on places to eat and where to get an amazing bottle of local wine.

Maria and Derek purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Maria and Derek chose Frosinone Province

This property is in a truly amazing location to visit Rome for a day, the Amalfi coast or venture up into the mountains or take a drive to the local beach. It will not disappoint you. Maria and Derek built this home with true attention to detail as Derek's background in the UK was in building and project management and they have built over 10 homes for themselves. This is a great place to base yourself if you want to experience true Italian culture as Maria has many family members who stop by to visit. Maria and Derek like to spend quality time here and in the UK and enjoy welcoming guests to visit the area.

What makes this apartment unique

Location, location, location. Surrounded by breath taking scenery. Al fresco dining, BBQ, pool, Jacuzzi bath, open plan lounge and kitchen, authentic true locals, great holiday advise, plenty of secure space to park and walk around. Mix with the locals and don't feel like a tourist.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"The house is lovely and a great size, and has everything that you could need. It also has superb views and plenty of outside space to sit in. Perfect really.

I am sure we will come back as there are a few more things I would still like to see." (Family from Scotland).

"Hello Maria and Derek

First of all thank you for the lovely week in your beautiful home. It was a nice surprise to open the refrigerator and find the delicious local produce. And special to Derek, thanks for your hospitality.

We look forward to see both of you in spring or summer 2012.

Kindly greeting" (Guests from Denmark)

Beautiful home, relaxing location, wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely apartment, spacious and well maintained.

Maria and Derek are perfect hosts, they know the local area very well and can advise you on what to see, but also allow you your privacy.

I would recommend this apartment if you want a relaxing holiday and the chance to see the "real Italy" combined with the ability to travel to the tourist sites at Pompeii, Hercolaneum, Naples, Rome, and the sea all within easy distance.

Modern stylish and spacious, beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We were made to feel very welcome by Maria and Derek. The accomodation was clean, stylish and spacious. Nice big kitchen/dining area. We slept very well - it is a quite location and the total blackout shutters are great. The house is surrounded by a lovely big garden and mountains. Monte Cassino monastery is spectacular. There is a great cake shop in Cassino town and also a very stylish fresh pasta shop and a big veg market.

Perfect Apartment and Amazing Views!

  • 5 of 5

Myself and a friend spent a week at this amazing place, so much to see and do in the area, Derek was extremely welcoming, unfortunately Maria was away so we did not get to meet her on this occasion. The views are to die for and its so relaxing. We visited Monte Cassino Abbey, Pompei, Rome , Fomia Beach and Gaeta Harbour. All in all, we can highly recommend to everyone and would not hesitate to return in the future. Thank you to our wonderful hosts!

Wonderfully peaceful, clean and relaxing villa.

  • 5 of 5

We all really loved our stay - it was wonderfully located as it was close to supermarkets and Monte Cassino and was also within an easy distance for a day trip to Pompeii and the coast. We loved the peace of the countryside for just relaxing in and Derek and Maria were wonderfully welcoming and friendly. If you can find somewhere that suits 2 adults and keeps a 15 year old boy happy then you know you are onto a winner. Thank you for a great holiday.

Beautiful apartment with mountain views

  • 5 of 5

We picked this villa in the hope that it would be a fantastic, peaceful location to relax in after a few busy days in Rome. We were not disappointed! The accomodation was beautifully clean, to a high standard and very spacious. Our children loved the pool which had amazing views over the mountains and to Monte Cassino Abbey. The Abbey is a pleasant surprise with mosiacs and marble to challenge anything we saw in Rome. The location is perfect for feeling away from the tourist, hussle and bussle, but within easy reach of supermarkets and restaurants. You are also within 1 hour of Pompeii and Herculaneum on an easy route, and 30 minutes to the seaside. Derek and Maria were fantastic hosts, allowing us our privacy, but very helpful if we needed them. The apartment was also very secure and had beautiful gardens to enjoy. All in, I wouldn't hesitate to come here again. You won't be disappointed!

Perfect accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on the Sunday after a 1.5hr drive from Rome and were met by Derek & Maria. We received a great welcome along with food goodies to enjoy. The location was perfect for touring local villages and towns (particularly Montecassino). The accommodation was very clean, large, excellent, has all the facilities and cool in the hot sunshine. Derek and Maria went beyond helpful and had the right measure of being of assistance but not getting in our way. Car parking not a problem, right in front of the door an a secure site. We would highly recommend this accommodation and Derek & Maria to you. We will tell all our friends about it.
