About Beatrice Tedeschi-Schmidt

Hi everyone! My name is Beatrice.

I am here to propose you my beloved properties in Italy. I am a simple person passionate of art, hospitality, architecture, Italian culture and Italy, travel-enjoying places like a local with locals. During the years I tried with my team in ItalyHomeXP & Mediterranea Property Owners to develop my dream:

***** Raise up a portfolio of properties with genuine Italian Character, prepared with all the comforts needed for international travelers for tourism of business to let them find their Italian home, including services that can help to let them experience the best of Italy, like a local, with locals (from fixed housekeeping and cooking at home to airport transfers, rent a car, guided visits etc *****

Me and my team test every house we have or we manage to ascertain our quality standards. We carefully listen to the voice of our guests to learn everyday how to improve our services and maintain fair prices and conditions.

We a registered company that pays taxes in Italy… so no fake property owners and bad surprises at arrival… booking online a temporary home from individuals every day more dangerous… no temporary workers to collect keys or clean… we have only permanent motivated staff that that take care of the properties and our precious guest with passion.

We are proud to became Premium Partners for the Housing Service of many Companies and Institutions to arrange the temporary homes for their expat or travelling employees in Italy like NATO, FAO, WFP, Procter & Gamble, Altran, BCG, General Motors – Chevrolet, Henkel, Credem, Pfizer, Protiviti, Banca Sella, Pontifical North American College of Rome, Pontifical Bishops Annual Congress and many more.


Beatrice Tedeschi-Schmidt purchased this villa in 1980

Why Beatrice Tedeschi-Schmidt chose Latina Province

Renting a villa under the Tuscan sun has become big business in Italy’s rolling north country. So big that the lovely family in the villa next door is as likely to be from London, Munich or Tokyo as to have lived in the Umbrian hills for generations. For those who like their Italy a bit more Italian, the southern half of the boot holds many treasures, and few of them have been discovered, far less overrun by tourists.

One such marvel is Formia, Gaeta and Minturno, small, ancient towns on its own Gulf in the Mediterranean, sitting conveniently near the train line half-way between Rome and Naples. It is about 45 minutes by express train to either city, making it a perfect base for day trips. What it also offers are enough ancient ruins, medieval alleyways and old churches to keep any visitor enthralled for weeks, without so much as a glance at the tourist-clogged cities to the north and south. You will deal with me and or my team that with passion supports me to provide you the best service!

What makes this villa unique

Only 80 meters by one of the best beaches in the area. Fine golden sandy beach, water protected by rocky barriers and inside calm shallow hot water... perfect for kids.

Conveniently near the train line half-way between Rome and Naples. It is about 60 minutes by express train to either city, making it a perfect base for day trips. Dozens of sites (medieval towns, islands, historic sits, nature) to visits in 20minutes by car.

Large spaces, fully equipped including the garden with lights, tends, outside showers, table and seats, barbecue... Our guests enjoys a lot the outside spaces! The inside also is very large and fresh, also in the hottest summer thanks to the thick walls of bricks. Private parking.

The position is also locally strategic… The beach 2 minutes away, the town center at 3,7km… Hundreds of interesting sites to explore, visit and taste in just 20 minutes…

Concierge in English, Russian, Italian that can support, provide advises or arrange excursions with van 12/7.

You will receive the home manual that include a local advises and Italian advises sections that out of the useful information on the house and tips to arrange you trip and enjoy Italy, provide you lots of ideas on how to spend and arrange your stay and visits.

Would you like to have some nights in Rome as well? We have several comfortable houses in Rome city center that you can reserve in the same time with this one?

Just ask and we will send you the best option!

Well equipped and maintained property, ideal for a relaxing beach holiday/break

  • 5 of 5

Property was fabulously placed for the beach which is a very short walk away; the town too was close enough to walk to for groceries, eating out and other local amenities.

The villa itself was secure behind locked gates and provided ample space and comfort for large parties (8-10) easily. There was plenty of storage and hanging space for clothes in the well sized bedrooms. (Three teenage boys shared one bedroom) The outside shower and areas are well appointed and regularly maintained.

The villa provided an ideal location as a base for us to visit Pompeii, Herculaneum, Bay of Naples areas before we moved onto Rome.

Amazing Stay 5*

  • 5 of 5

Our 6 night stay at this villa was faultless from start to finish. Thank you to Bea for helping to organise our stay at such short notice. Truly designed to feel like a home. The standard of furnishings and bedding are that of a 5 star hotel. With two luxurious bathrooms and furnishing, the villa is perfect for an entire family or two couples. And don't forget the magnificent dining terrace and so close to the beach!!

Great choice for a sighteeing tour of cental Italy

  • 5 of 5

The house is as in the pictures and the description. We were in 2 for a romantic gataway but the house can accomodate in full comfort up to 9. The beach as well, walkby and relaxing. We found here a very friendly environment. Maria the owner that lives nearby is such a emphatic and generous person, we felt to have really an aunt nearby. She was very helpful and introduced us in the real italian local life.

Was a great experience, she travelled a lot all over the word and very open minded. We spent many evening talking on the terrace.

Se personally renewed recently the apartment with a globalist-chic taste. I am an architect, she is not, but I was really impressed about the solutions.

Parking down the house is very useful.

It is located in a private resindetial area of all locals. Very quiet and... local.

We have been tryng most of the restaurants walk by and noted that compared to Rome, where we were coming from 3 days is everything incredibly cheap! you can have a fresh seafood dinner with wine for 20 Euro and beer and pizza for five.

We travelled a lot during our 13 days stay to sightseeing as much as we could about the real central Italy. The medieval towns nearby (we counted more than 20) are incredibly beautiful and away from common path, the coast amazing.

Hope to pass by in autum to continue the tour.

Bea our main contact for the reservation is very proactive and provided always immediate response. Very good customer service.

See you,

We now do understand why you have so many reviews guys… You keep pushing and pushing to encourage us. We do understand also that so often if you are happy with service you just forget and if you are disappointed also for a little thing you post a negative or neutral feedback. I do have to confess that I am one of those. Any way I go through your request since effectively you exceeded expectation:

• house was perfect clean and in line with the advertised pictures

• service was impressive. You Bea are kind and very responsive, but Olga and Hanna are real top performer in hospitality. It is clear their passion to advance any request and make the traveler feel like at home, make everything easy ad smooth. They are simply lovely, you are lucky to have them.

In particular thanks to the local and home guide you developed and provided us we have been able to enjoy the best spots to be experienced I think. And for a 20/80 Bain Partner this is very important…

As a business strategy consultant I love to observe people doing business and have appreciated the passion you all put in hosting international travelers.

We have appreciated also your Monday dinner on the beach… Was a pleasure chance to have a nice local meal with our timing… (7pm) overlooking the sea with a stunning view, with the kids area, to meet other of your international guests and off course meet you and your team out of the schemes. Good idea this one. We had the change to arrange a tour with a nice French Couple in Amalfi. Our kid was so happy to have company.

Other good ideas that we loved and tested with curiosity were:

- your boat available for day or half day itineraries fishing or relaxing in the best remote bays;

- your luxury van that was costing less than taxi for visits with driver

- your small office corner for guest in your office with laptop, printer, fax available in you nice local office overlooking the harbor with a lovely terrace with kids entertainment.

For the rest I have to remark that your property worth much to visit Rome, Naples and many other sites. We had 3 days in Rome before arrival and paid like 2 weeks at your place... and in the end it is only one hour train from the city center of Rome and Naples... Next time will come straight here. Especially with kids you have to alternate culture to entertainment... and the beach.... is top.

So.... God job and keep working in this way.

Good accommodation & location

  • 4 of 5

The house is perfectly located with only 2 minutes walk to a sandy beach. Supermarkets are 5 minutes by car.

We enjoyed staying in the house. Service of the renting agency was also very good: the wifi was not working so they gave us a standalone modem for the week. Also, they created and gave us an extra copy of the keys as we were with two families.

Some small remarks:

- there are a lot of mosquitoes in and around the house, so bring something for that

- the garbage system of Italy is not very friendly for tourist who stay only a short time. We ended up driving for 10 minutes before we could dispose of our garbage on the day we left.

- the house is somewhat old, so there are some small damages.

Overall, we enjoyed thaying here very much.
