Make a holiday villa in Formia your home away from home

You can find the holiday home or apartment in Formia that’s right for you on HomeAway. Formia is a beautiful resort in the Lazio province of Latina, replete with history and culture, but also great for beach-time in summer as it’s located close to world-class beaches. Many holiday homes in Formia are set in the hills just outside the town, catering to the needs of modern families with up-to-date kitchens and living rooms, and boasting knockout views of the Tyrrhenian Sea. Formia apartments feature guest facilities like air-conditioning, while you can enjoy outdoor family meals in the evenings thanks comforts like large gardens and barbecues.

Things to do

-Beaches. The coast here is known for its excellent sandy beaches. On the Formia waterfront is the golden Vindicio beach, complete with parasols and sunbeds. A few minutes west of Formia is Sperlonga, a beautiful curve of sand framed by pine-clad hills and rated as the best in the area. Even closer is the resort of Gaeta, with a medieval castle and access to the gorgeous Serapo beach.

-History and nature. Formia is on the Roman Appian way, has remnants including a stunning mausoleum and tomb of Cicero. There’s also a large 2nd Century cistern and the ruins of a Roman villa. In from the coast is a rugged and scenic landscape, great for walks and bike rides. From the hills above Formia you can see all the way down to Vesuvius on clear days.

-Cuisine. The Latina province is known for its agriculture, so the cuisine here is rich both in local produce and fish from the Tyrrhenian. Some dishes have their roots in the Roman era, such as oxtail stew, which has veal tail simmered in wine, with celery and prosciutto. A range of red, white and rosé wines are also produced nearby, including the dry, straw-coloured Circeo Trebbiano, a DOC label.

-Rome. The Eternal City more than merits the drive up the coast. The sights here are too many to mention, but among the best known are the Pantheon, a breathtaking 2nd Century temple known for its large dome, and the Coliseum, the largest amphitheatre in the world. There’s also the Vatican, the papal city state, and a catalogue of first-class museums to visit.

-Naples. This city has long been an important political and cultural centre. At the Museo di Capodimonte you can see works by masters like Caravaggio and Titian. The historic centre of the city is a UNESCO site for its array of architecture, including some 450 baroque, renaissance and medieval churches. Naples is also renowned for Vesuvious and Pompeii, a short drive around the bay.

The apt is very bright and comfortable. There are all the amenities someone may need. the terrace is amazing and in the sunny days we had breakfast outside. Highly recommended!

The bedrooms were spacious and the kitchen had everything we needed. Giovanna did a terrific job as our Host. Working with Bea, the owner, was great-she made sure everything went well before and after the trip. I would highly recommend this property for a relaxing stay in Formia!

The villa is gorgeous, and spacious!! Just going out to the patio and watching the sun come up over the ocean every morning is worth every penny, but it doesn't stop there! Giovanna, the host is super nice and accommodating, LOVE her!! really she knows so much about the the city, where to go, what and where to avoid...she was such a big help from rides to and from the airport to the stores, to recommendations on great restaurants!!! Really made us feel so much more relaxed and relieved about our stay. (It was our first time in Formia) I really cannot even begin to say how relaxing and rested we were. Just a couple of steps from the sea...It was simply the best!! Definitely will be renting again!!!!!! Best time ever!!!
