The pictures on this website don't do this property enough justice. It is absolutely huge with 3 double bedrooms each with air conditioning and ample storage space. It has 2 big bathrooms, one at each end of the main bedroom corridor. The main lounge/dinner again is huge and tastefully decorated and equipped with large dinning table and chairs and ample comfortable seating in the TV area. There is a lovely balcony off the lounge which overlooks the street and is great for relaxing and people watching. The kitchen is well equipped with appliances and every utensil you need. There is a 2nd small balcony off the kitchen with large built in clothes line. The whole apartment was fresh and beautifully decorated and clean. Susi and Francesca met us at the door to show us around the apartment and help us settle in. They gave us info on the local area and exchanged phone numbers and were always available to give assistance or guidance if required. The apartment is very centrally located in Formia being only 7 mins walk from Train Station/bus terminal. It is only 5mins from the Main High street and Harbour. The 2 main beaches are to either side of the harbour part and are about 30min walk or a short bus ride. Our favourite being the Beach to the East of town towards San Pietro which is protected by rock islands and very safe for small children being shallow, warm and calm. This town is very Italian and popular with Italian Holidaymakers and it helps to have some basic Italian or Goggle translator to get by as English is not widely spoken which we loved and spent many fun filled minutes trying to interpret menus each night to decide what to order. There are lots of small cafes and pizzerias dotted all around town and also a handful of bigger Mediterranean/Italian/Seafood restaurants around and our favourite 3 were Oliva e I'ingenere, Vizi & Virtu and Lancora. The neighbouring town of Gaeta is a 20 min bus ride away and boasts a massive stretch of beautiful sandy beach and well worth a visit. There is a ancient Roman Cistern in the old town and short fascinating tours are offered in the evenings. We stayed for a week and chose Formia because of its central location between Rome and Naples and access to train station which we chose as our primary transport option for day visits to Rome and Pompeii which were both only an hour away, and proved to be amazing educational and fun days out. Overall a fantastic holiday and an amazing apartment with great hosts
Great location only 50metres from the beach and the great La Lanterna beach bar and restaurant .
The appartment has a wonderful terrace with views of the sea, the old town and the mountains. The appartment is comfortable and great kitchen and BBQ for lovely evenings eating outdoors.
Lorella and Tulio were really helpful and accommodating with early checkin and providing knowledge of the area.
We will definitely be back!
