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.

It was not made entirely clear that the owners live in a sectioned off part of the house which is actually their home so considerable personal effects and belongings are stored in the villa part you stay in. I wouldn't want to holiday here with boisterous children who would be fascinated by all the pretty things . It isn't a mirror image semi - detached villa . However the owners were unobtrusive , kind and welcoming despite not speaking English and we saw more of their cat and dog who were frequent visitors for strokes and treats ! If I had to make any points I would say there wasn't enough standard crockery for day to day use , no kettle because they drink coffee and because of the way they have split the house up there is no downstairs loo which was just a slight inconvenience from the pool We also couldn't plug in the microwave or make the whirlpool bath work but these didn't really impact on our enjoyment . The road up to the villa is very steep and you definitely need a car to go anywhere at all . All in all it was a lovely place with views over the sea to die for and we would certainly recommend it

The flat was awesome. It's beautiful and very big, well furnished and it checks with description entirely. The flat had gorgeous dining room, kitchen had a lot of dishes. Moreover, there is a good location. The apartment was located in the city center, a supermarket was in two steps and we walked to the beach about 10-15 by slow steps and it wasn't far away for us. Besides, the owner was very pleasing women and we are grateful to her for everything. She gave us a lot of useful advices about sights.
