"Paul and Louise were gracious & accommodating hosts. When we arrived from Rome we had not eaten, and they sent over some food. That first evening (as we hadn't gotten to town yet for groceries) they took us with them to eat at a wonderful local eatery. The apartment was clean, nicely furnished and situated in a peaceful olive grove-a welcome respite for us US city dwellers! The view was gorgeous from our balcony where we watched the sun set every night. Their dog Max was an early riser (like me) and spent each morning on the balcony with me laying in the sun while I read and ate breakfast, after he "knocked" on the gate to come in. Throughout our stay both Paul and Louise were friendly and helpful and Paul took the time to get us to Sperlonga (wonderful beach nearby), into the town of Itri and when our plans to see Pompeii were derailed they took us sightseeing in Gaeta.

No need to travel to the pricey Amalfi Coast. The South Lazio region is just as if not more beautiful and less crowded and expensive. We are already planning our return trip for hopefully within the next year. And we will stay with Paul & Louise again."

"We had a quiet and peaceful rest at this apartment. Just what we were looking for! The apartment looks just like the photos and the outdoors are as inviting as the photos. Too bad it was not hot enough to swim. But the children loved the garden and the lizards. Paul and Louise are kind and informative as to what is in the area as well as fun background stories which make the stay even more memorable. The beach is close as well as the small towns. A good choice where you can get to do things and come back to a quiet, safe place. We would recommend this as a wonderful, restful spot."

Louise and Paul made us feel welcomed! The directions to their house was perfect, it wasn´t difficult to find it. The area was beautiful with olive trees as long as you can see. They have a lot of dogs but it wasn´t a problem for us, and our daughter really liked watching them. They had made a "guide book" to what to see and do around Itri. It was really helpful! This is a really good place to stay at if you have children! And it is a nice place to stay if you want to relax and take it easy. We could really recommend it!

"My family and I stayed here for a fortnight in July 2014. It turned out to be the perfect place for us and our children aged 12, 9 and 7 to stay. Right from the beginning Paul and Louise made us feel so welcome. As we were arriving late they got some shopping supplies in for us. The apartment was really comfortable, clean and well equipped. There was no air-conditioning but the flat stayed nice and cool. The view from the terrace of the olive grove and the surrounding mountains was really beautiful, especially at sunset. The stars in the night sky were amazing and also the fire flies.

The children were so happy to spend lots of time in the pool, while we were able to watch them from the balcony and we could just chill and relax with a book and a glass of wine. Some days we did all go out to visit some of the sandy beaches, which were only a short drive away. We were well impressed. Itri was lovely too, we would often go for a stroll around the town in the evening and tried out all the ice-cream flavours.

We chose to stay at Tre Cancelle because we wanted to visit Rome, Naples and Pompeii. We found it easy and convenient to go on day trips to these places. The train tickets were surprisingly cheap. Paul kindly dropped us off and picked us up from the train station. We also visited Montecassino Abbey by car which was magnificent. Well worth a visit. We visited many of the neighbouring towns and villages and especially enjoyed Sperlonga, Gaeta and Campodimele. Louise has written an amazing guide book with photos of the area which we found really interesting and helpful. Indeed, Paul and Louise were always available to help us if we had any queries and went out of their way to make our stay very special one. The kids haven't stopped talking about it. We really do hope to come back soon."

Paul and Louise made the holiday for us with their local knowledge and contacts. The location is beautiful - local walks as well as the coast. We could not fault Tre Cancelle in any way.

“Beautiful and Peaceful Place to Stay”. I really enjoyed my stay here - it's a gorgeous, peaceful location with stunning views across the countryside. The apartment was clean and spacious and there were ample towels and pillows. There was also a generously stocked bookcase - always a plus for me! The main building is set in a garden and olive grove, which is lovely to wander in. The owners, Paul & Louise, were very helpful and clearly take a great deal of pride in making sure that their guests have everything they need. They also have an impressive knowledge of the local area, very helpful for finding interesting places to visit.

“Magical!” We had such a wonderful stay.

Due to our late flight, we only got to the apartment at about 03:00 in the morning. This was no trouble for the hosts (Paul & Louise) Paul even picked us up from the main road, and lead us to the apartment. The apartment was beautiful. It had a very homely feel too. The place was clean, and above all, had everything we needed for our stay. It is beautifully decorated (I am sure Louise spent many hours doing that!) The apartment is set in a beautiful location (on their farm). Its feels lovely & isolated, but you are only 4-5 km away from the nearest town Itri, so you can buy any groceries, or eat out. The apartment overseas the olive grove & beautiful mountains. The host had a book with all relevant information in the area. They were also always available to answer any questions that we had. It was a magical stay & we would certainly recommend it to anyone.

“A genuine home-from-home in a beautiful location”. We had a lovely stay here in July/August 2013. The apartments are in a great location in the hills between Itri and the coast, set amongst acres of olive trees. The beaches are a 20-30 minute car journey away (depending on which beach you're visiting). The surrounding towns have excellent transport links so it's an ideal base to explore places that are a bit further away such as Sorrento & Pompeii. The apartment that we stayed in was very spacious and comfortable. It came equipped with everything that you could conceivably need during your stay. Our favourite feature was the massive private balcony. You can spend the evening dining al fresco while watching the sunset as it lights up the surrounding mountains and olive trees. Paul & Louise were superb hosts who were very knowledgeable about the local area. They provided help and advice on a multitude of issues - deciding which beach to visit through to explaining how parking works in the local towns. Nothing was too much trouble for them during our stay. To summarise Tre Cancelle apartments are a genuine home from home in a beautiful location.

James Rapa, London - TripAdvisor

“Wonderful Italian Experience”. We stayed in the upstairs apartment which was very clean and comfortable, providing great relaxation and fabulous sunsets from the terrace looking out to the mountains and coast. Paul and Louise are perfect hosts and provide all the local info. There is so much to see and do.

About Luisa and Paolo

We are an English Couple who now live in Bella Italia. We have been here for several years now.

We came to this beautiful region on holiday several times and we decided to escape the stress of the “rat race”, sell up in the UK, and completely change our life-style.

The place we chose to live is Itri, a sweet little town nestling in the foothills of the Aurunci Mountains, an ancient staging post along the Roman “Via Appia“.

Our home is a restored farmhouse or “casale“ on the outskirts of this historic township and is set amidst the greenery of our own olive groves in a quiet little backwater with mountain and countryside views, and even a glimpse of the sea.

We are indeed exceptionally fortunate to live here.

The property that we purchased hadn't been lived in for over 10 years, and even then it had not been a true family home. The facilities were very basic and left much to be desired, lacking in creature comforts, as it had been only been used as a place to camp at busy times of the farming year, particularly during the olive harvest.

The building itself seemed to be structurally sound, however was in need of a great deal of work and renovation. The property had no connection to a water supply, except for a rainwater cistern, and no electricity or gas.

The house came with a sizeable semi-abandoned olive grove, into which we dreamed of breathing new life.

We'd now like to share this and invite you to come and stay at our Tre Cancelle Farmhouse for an enjoyable restful holiday.

Why Luisa and Paolo chose Latina Province

The 2 apartments are very homely and comfortable, just like a real 'home from home'.

It is a tranquil retreat set in the peace of our olive groves. A perfect place to get away from it all and relax.

Ideal for nature and animal lovers, bird watchers and hikers.

The Swimming Pool is Ideal for families

We live on-site, speak fluent English & Italian & are always on hand to ensure you have a most enjoyable holiday.

What makes this apartment unique

Near to the beautiful coastline of Sperlonga and its golden sandy beaches.

Near to the historic town of Itri which nestles in the foothills of the Aurunci Mountains in South Lazio, Italy. Indeed here at Tre Cancelle we have the best of both worlds.

Just brilliant all together !!!

  • 5 of 5

Tre Cancelle is a lovely place lost in the mountains in the middle of an olive field. The apartments are clean and you find anything you need in them : either to cook or to wash or to swim in the very convenient and also very clean swimming-pool. The location is just perfect to visit Rome and Naples by train or car. The surroundings are lovely too because you're between sea and mountains. But I'd say that the best of it all surely is to get the chance to meet Louise and Paul, the owners of Tre Cancelle who are some of the most lovely and helpful people I've ever met in my life. It is really worthed to get there juste even to meet them both ! Hopefully I'll be back soon !!! Lydia (and the rest of the family !)

Great already-with more to come

  • 5 of 5

An amazing, secluded location in the Lazio hills. Our apartment was furnished and decorated to an extremely high standard. Owners Paulo and Louise could not have done more to make us feel welcome and comfortable. I understand certain aspects of the immediate estate were "work in-progress", for example the temporary pool, but overall it's a wonderful place to stay.

Tre Cancelle Farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

We had the top floor apartment which had lovely views over the valley. The apartment was very clean and comfortable with all your requirements. The grounds have lovely olive trees and cover a large expanse. Paul and Louise are excellent hosts and are on hand to help with visits etc. The towns nearby are lovely and the coast was beautiful. We took the local train into Rome for the day with the help of Paul dropping us off and collecting us at the station. There is a nice swimming pool but unfortunately the weather was a bit cool the week we were there.

We enjoyed our stay as you felt as if you were enjoying Italy's rural countryside.
