This place is all about the stunning view from the top of the watch tower. Having a glass (or several glasses) of wine watching the sun set was our favourite part of every day of our holiday.
The apartment is really unique, set over several levels (with quite a steep and narrow set of stairs) - it’s clean, well equipped and is a perfect spot from which explore Gaeta.
Thank you to Antonio (and your father) for making us feel welcome and for letting us stay in your beautiful home!
This was our second stay and we are about to book a third. We had never been back to the same place in the world twice until staying here.
Formia is a typical Italian town with so many shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. There is a large supermarket less than 10 minutes walk away and local shops to buy fruit and vegetables, bread and delicatessen provisions on the same street as the apartment. Also on that same road is a great pizzeria and a gelateria - both visited too many times for the diet!
This visit we took the ferry to Ponza island from Formia port. The island was beautiful. Also recommended are Gaeta and Sperlonga.
Regarding the apartment itself, I have never stayed in a better apartment. It is so large and spacious with so much room to spread out and relax. The kitchen has everything you need to cook a large meal for a family and 2 bathrooms is a great bonus.
And our host Susi could not have been nicer, from the welcome we received after a long day in Rome to helping us with the return journey and so much more. You are left alone to enjoy your holiday but it is comforting to know there is someone only a message away who will help with whatever you need.
I can not recommend the apartment enough. My only concern is that as more and more people experience it then it will become increasingly difficult to book!!
