The Latina Province of Lazio is a partly mountainous, partly coastal region of Italy. Known for its stunning combination of Tyrrhenian beaches, glorious natural scenery and impressive medieval towns, Latina Province offers a little of everything that has made Lazio such a popular tourist destination, without the tourist crowds so familiar to much of Italy.
Latina’s coastline is one of the largest attractions for those visiting Latina holiday accommodation. There are over 100km of unpopulated coastline in Latina, with numerous idyllic bathing spots located all along the Tyrrhenian Sea. The Islands of Ponza and Ventotene are fantastic spots to snorkel or go scuba diving too, with excellent visibility and plenty of marine life to explore. There are some magnificent medieval towns lining parts of the coastline, as well as many archaeological discoveries including the famous sites of the Cori area, from Ninfa to Monte San Biagio.
Inland, forests, coastal dunes and wetlands make up the majority of the scenery, acting as home to a remarkable number of animal and bird species, especially in the nature parks of Monte Orlando, Monti Aurunci and Gianola Suburban Park. The Circeo State Nature Reserve is a fantastic place to walk, cycle and ride horses in natural surroundings too.
There are some excellent festivals throughout the Latina calendar. The Carosello dei Rioni is celebrated with gusto every June, when patrons dress in 17th century robes and represent the three town districts of Cori. Autumn brings the advent of many food festivals, including the Feast of Cherries in Maenza and the Feast of the Roast Chestnuts.
The infamous city of Rome is never far from the itinerary of those living in self catering Latina properties. With all the monuments, restaurants and galleries to discover, the allure of the Eternal City is hard to ignore. The best time to visit Rome is away from the main tourist months of July and August as the crowds can be pretty large in the height of summer.
Walkers looking at Latina accommodation will be thrilled to discover the climate. Throughout the year temperatures remain magnificently mild, averaging 27˚C in July and 13˚C in January. The beach lovers among you will also be in their element, as from May until September you can expect daily peak temperatures to be in the 30’s.
Reaching a holiday rental home in Latina Province is very easy to do from the UK. There are frequent daily flights from airports across the UK to Rome’s Fiumicino Airport (FCO). Depending on the exact location of your Latina property, there are a range of bus and train services throughout the region as well as the many hire car companies which are located within Rome airport.
