About Annapaola

I was born in Gaeta, and I love my country. My husband and I turn the world on business, but we wanted to buy this house to maintain relationships with the places of origin. Not being able to live in Formia all year, we decided to offer people from around the world the comfort and quiet of our house.

Annapaola purchased this villa in 2005

What makes this villa unique

The villa is in the city centre and near the sand beach

Very well presented and equipped property in a good location for a family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Thankyou for a lovely family holiday at the apartment in Formia. The apartment was presented very well and decorated and furnished with character. We found it spacious for our family of 5 with all of the bedrooms featuring air conditioning. We didn't need this in the main bedroom as we prefered to leave the windows and the shutters open for some cooler fresh air. this also gave us the chance to take in the excellent view of the bay from one of the balconies. The apartment is near a busy road, but we didn't find the traffic noise a problem. We also liked the location, which was 5 minutes to a basic store, 15 to a bigger and much better one in the centre of the town and we were only 5 minutes walk to the beach. The train station was a 20 minute walk and this gave us reasonable cost transport to Rome and Naples. There is a family living in the apartment below so you need to be considerate with noise late in the evening. The family was very friendly, including their dog, which entertained our youngest daughter for some time. The swimming pool was a big positive, and we all enjoyed late night swims. Overall I would thoroughly recommend this apartment and the professional and courteous service of the host, made this an excellent holiday.

thanks again...stuart

Spacious Villa - Excellent location

  • 4 of 5

The house is very spacious and clean. We had 6 adults and a baby and they even had a crib for us. A pool is great and a garden is beatiful. The view from the balcony over the bay of Formia is wonderful. There is some traffic noise because house is at the edge of the park and directly next to the Strada Statale.

Annapaola is very friendly and helpful. We got every help what we needed. We had no problems with the noises despite a family lives in the basement.

Location is great for exploring nearby towns and villages. We had a car and we drove for example to Gaeta, Sperlonga and Pompeiji. We also took twice a train to Rome. Thank you for a lovely holiday.

Superb house very conveniently located

  • 5 of 5

We had fantastic holidays at this place. The house is very spacious and beautifully decorated. It has all you need for a comfortable stay and is very conveniently located in a secured neighbourhood with a beach within 5-7 minutes walk. A small supermarket which can be reached by foot in 5-7 minutes as well and a larger supermarket is in 7-10 minutes drive. The pool is spacious and to be honest looks much prettier in reality than in the picture:) Tony, the host, his family and Annapaola are very-very nice, helpful and will do everything to make sure you will have a wonderful stay! Formia is a perfect choice if you want to travel to Rome and Napoli. I would personally advise to take a train which is fast and painless - a train station is located within 5 minutes drives and you can reach Rome in 1 - 1.30 hours. Overall i would definetely return to Formia and will not search for another property! Thanks, Tony, Rafaella, little Viola and Annapaola! Hugs to Tonic from the kids;)

Flott familiebolig bare 10 min fra sjøen

  • 5 of 5

Vi var 4 voksne og et barn som storkoste oss i to uker med bading, sol og noen småturer rundt i området. Tomannsboligen ligger ca 1,5 til 2 timer fra Roma og litt nærmere Napoli. Vi reiste inn til Napoli og til Pompei en annen dag, det gikk greit med tog - men det kan være lurt å beregne noen forsinkelser. Både Formia og Gaeta er sjarmerende byer, man kan bade begge steder og sanden er finkornet med noen skjell her og der. Huset har en flott hage med svømmebasseng, der koste vi oss masse. Siden huset ligger rett ved en vei, er det noe støy fra trafikk - men det var ikke noe problem for oss. Huset har to soverom og et rom på loftet, for oss var det godt plass og vi hadde en super ferie. Takk for oss Anna, vi sees igjen!

Nice house – loud place

  • 2 of 5

Ana, the manager of the vacation house was very friendly and tried hard to satisfy our wishes. The view from the balcony over the bay of Formia-Gaeta is wonderful. The house is spacious and well furnished, but there are many private objects like photographs and clothes, so it feels more like you are at a friend’s house rather than being in an actual vacation house which is a bit weird.

The third bedroom on the top floor is accessible through a very small spiral staircase, which makes it hard to get your luggage up there. For elderly people it might not be pleasant to use this staircase on a daily basis. It also might be dangerous in case of a fire.

This bedroom has no door so there is neither privacy, nor a possibility to shut out the noises from within the house.

The noises were the actual problem while we stayed. The vacation house was described as a villa, but actually it is a semi-detached house and a lively family lives in the basement. The only separation to their apartment is a thin door made of glass, so we could hear most of the activities going on downstairs, including a screaming child and a barking dog. This is not what you expect to get when you are booking a “villa”.

Furthermore, we asked the manager of the house before we booked it, whether we would be bothered by noises, for example, a loud street. She told us the area is quiet and the next bigger street, the Strada Statale 7, is not very busy. In fact, the park the house is located in is quiet, but the house is at the edge of the park and directly next to the Strada Statale, which is very busy and noisy. It was hard to relax beeing near the loud traffic, even though the garden and the pool would have been a nice place to be.

Owner's Response: We very much regret for these review . Therefore we would like to clarify some things. Villa Aquamarine has had all 5-star reviews on this website and others. We have achieved this because we have always given accurate and truthful information that the guests can check on their arrival. It 's true, the house has the flavor of Italian homes with memories of the family living in it. We Italians love to host so, not in houses that seem aseptic, anonymous hotels. Regarding to open space on the second floor, we have described it very well and photographed the ladder by which we reach it so that the guest can realize. About the noise of the street and the nearby family no one ever complained. Everyone have communicated with them and someone has made friends. We regret that thay have not been good, maybe they have chosen the wrong type of holiday, they should opt for a hermitage or a desert island.

Villa di grande qualita' - High quality villa

  • 5 of 5

Villa Acquamarina e' una delle migliori ville che ho affittato per le vacanze estive negli ultimi 20 anni: molto comoda, spaziosa e pulita, giardino molto ben tenuto e bella piscina), infissi e arredamento di ottima qualita', televisione con sistema audio Bose a 5 altoparlanti, solo 5 minuti di cammino per la spiaggia sabbiosa a Vindicio (ma bisogna attraversare due strade trafficate, quindi attenzione con i bambini piccoli). La villa e' situata in una zona tranquilla di Formia, ma la via Appia passa accanto alla proprieta' e quindi c'e' rumore di traffico. Di notte abbiamo dormito benissimo grazie alle porte-finestre a doppi vetri e condizionatore d'aria efficiente. Molto cortesi e professionali sia la signora Anna (manager della villa) che il signor Antonio (custode della villa): grazie per una bella settimana di vacanza!

Villa Aquamarine is one of the best houses I have rented for summer holidays in the last 20 years: very comfortable, spacious interior and very clean, immaculate garden and lovely pool, fixtures and furniture of the highest quality, television with Bose 5 speakers sound system, easy 5-minute walk to the sandy beach in Vindicio (crossing two busy roads, so be careful with small children). The villa is located in a quiet residential area although the Appian Way passes next to the property and therefore there is some traffic noise. At night we slept like logs thanks to French windows with double glazing and efficient air conditioning. Signora Anna (manager of the villa) and Signor Antonio (caretaker of the villa) were very courteous and professional: thanks for a great holiday!
