Why Beatrice Tedeschi-Schmidt chose Formia
Renting a villa under the Tuscan sun has become big business in Italy’s rolling north country. So big that the lovely family in the villa next door is as likely to be from London, Munich or Tokyo as to have lived in the Umbrian hills for generations. For those who like their Italy a bit more Italian, the southern half of the boot holds many treasures, and few of them have been discovered, far less overrun by tourists.
One such marvel is Formia, Gaeta and Minturno, small, ancient towns on its own Gulf in the Mediterranean, sitting conveniently near the train line half-way between Rome and Naples. It is about 45 minutes by express train to either city, making it a perfect base for day trips. What it also offers are enough ancient ruins, medieval alleyways and old churches to keep any visitor enthralled for weeks, without so much as a glance at the tourist-clogged cities to the north and south. You will deal with me and or my team that with passion supports me to provide you the best service!
