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.

Beautiful property, charming host

5 of 5
The property has been beautifully designed and decorated, we found it quite delightful, private and really comfortable. We really enjoyed meeting Anna Maria who is a charming host and gave us much good advice and information about the area. Her parents are in a separate property nearby and are really lovely people who, whilst repecting the privacy of the guests, were anxious to help with any problems or enquiries they may have. We loved the beach clubs and really enjoyed the well cared for sand and perfect sea. It was a great holiday.

Nice apartment. Nice terrace. Ideal for a week away. Good location.

4 of 5
There are five of us (two adults and three kids age 10 - 15). We stayed here in late May / early June 2018 for one week. It's a block of apartments with this one being on the top floor. There are three flights of stairs which was fine by us but worth bearing in mind if you have mobility issues. The top floor means you get a fairly big terrace which we sometimes ate outdoors on. The apartment is equipped with most things you need and has an air conditioning unit in the bedrooms - which we needed at this time of year. There's a main double bedroom and the other room is semi-split into two - one with a small single, the other - two small single beds. It's effectively one room though. It's great for a family with young children but you wouldn't want to try and fit five adults in. There is a supermarket nearby - we had a hire car which helped. Parking is at the roadside on what is a fairly quiet street. Noise was never a problem. There is a football ground right at the back of the apartment but I only saw children using it for a tournament and that was on only one occasion. Beyond the football ground are amazing views of mountains. The beach is indeed only 100 metres away, however access is via a path owned by a local bar who charge you to use it. This doesn't seem uncommon in Italy. If you walk down nearer the town there is free public access and a bit of beach where you don't have to pay for a sun lounger. It's not an unreasonable walk but is more than 100 metres. The town seems nice and has a market. It's probably a 10-15 minute walk away. There are good restaurants within walking distance of the apartment. Formia isn't overly touristy and we didn't see many other Brits there. The scenic town of Sperlonga isn't a long drive to get to and worth a visit as is the nearer town of Gaeta. We did a trip to Pompeii and Vesuvius one day. It's a 90 minute drive each way but is certainly doable. All told, the apartment was good value and suited our needs well. If we were to visit Formia again I'd definitely use the same apartment. Diego and his father were pleasant and really helpful. They went out of their way and texted during the holiday to check all was ok. Great value family holiday.
