I am the passionate manager of Villa Blu Residence and I am delighted to propose it for your vacations.
I have studied, designed and completely rennovated in 2012 those 3 lovely apartments with panoramic sea and mountain view in 2012. Now they are prepared it to grant you a stay as pleasant as possibile!
I live here but I am from the north of Italy (a small town not far from Venice). I have selected this place for its exciting weather, nature, culture and location! You can have lunch outside at the sun more than 250 days per year; you are in the middle of some of the best historical sites and cities of Italy (1 hour from Rome, Naples-Pompeii and Caserta, but also lots of local sites within 20km from home!); the sea is wonderful and relaxing, and local thermal sites are healthful!...
For the same reason above I invite you to spend some time here and enjoy this lovely place that even after many years always offers me exciting discoveries!
I love to meet new people and new cultures, especially from overseas countries.
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.
You will deal with me and or my team that with passion supports me to provide you the best service!

You will hardly find a property for rent with this level of finitures and fittings. We are pleased to offert to our guests comfortable places to relax and enjoy the sourroundings like at their home.
The apartment was a nice size, the beds were comfortable, it was clean, and it was in a good location. We had a rental car, and we never had a problem finding a parking spot directly in front of the apartment. The apartment is on the 3rd floor, so be prepared to walk up stairs with your luggage bags. We never did walk to the beach, it was a good distance away. We arrived past 9PM, and we were charged a late check in fee. We were looking forward to taking a hot bath or shower after our long day of travel, however the water was ice cold. We read later in the "house instructions and rule book" that hot water is limited in the area. We also had to read the house instructions to figure out how to turn the stove on, which is a gas valve behind the appliance. The apartment comes with a washer but no dryer, we found clothes pins on the patio to hang and dry. We heard the train go by every now and then, but did not bother us. We enjoyed day trips up the coast. It was an overall pleasant trip. I would stay again, especially now that I am educated on how to use the home.
We had a wonderful time in this lovely home
The apartment was very neat and cosy. (very important not noisy at all)
This is a perfect location- so close to the beach- especially with two teenage daughters .
The welcome was splendid and our hosts were very accommodating.
We enjoyed the available list with tips for food and recreation. We had a wonderful diner in one of the local restaurants.
We definitely recommend the place and hope to visit again.
It’s the perfect location to get away from it all and experience local italian life - yet with good access to all the main sightseeing opportunities. The apartment matches the listing description and is clean and comfortable with all modern amenities and a lovely view across the rooftops from its high position. The local food is just delicious, with fresh vegetables, inexpensive good wine and excellent traditional italian dishes at nearby restaurants. Owners couldn't be more helpful and made it easy to make arrangements for transfer to and from the airport, and with family nearby we felt home from home!
One of our favourite days out was on the Enogastronomic Tour in a village not far from the villa. It was an interesting and entertaining experience touring the olive and lemon groves, tasting gorgeous olive oil, fresh lemons (yes - sweet enough to eat!) freshly made mozzarella, and home-made wine! We also made it down to the local marina at the foot of the hill (a very long walk but worth it - and there is a bus to bring you back up if you don’t fancy the long walk!) where restaurants can be found jutting out into the sea serving all kinds of delightful food and traditional home-made italian ice cream. If you like a holiday with a local feel, freshly grown produce, beautiful views, plenty to explore, and the sea - and far away from the madding crowd - this is the perfect holiday for you!
Great accomodation and Angelini Pharma event.
We really appreciated the house very well located and the host efforts to let us explore the location like a local.
The annual Angelini Pharma as well was very well managed.
I look forward to experience another Mediterranea property soon.
We had the pleasure to experience this beautiful residence tnks to the Roman Rotarian Society that arranged an event in Gaeta and this time selected the best properties in the central area.
We have been very satisfied of the house quality and service. First time for us in a holiday home and I have got to say that is a valuable alternative to hotels in terms of comfort, on the economics side I have noted that the organisation save a lot of money compared to the prior year budget.
Anyway, the area is serviced and Vanessa, our host is a very professional person that helped us a lot.
We are very happy that Rotary Club Italy entered in this partnership with Mediterranea Property Owners for our accomodations. Great price for value.

The environment is friendly. You will find yourself integrated in the local Italian culture. Every house is studied and prepared for the maximum comfort of our guests!

This will be very useful to have all the house details; recommended local services and directions (beach, supermarket, shopping mall, restaurants, pizzeria, ice-cream shops, café, train station, taxi, car/moto rental etc.), recommended things and excursions to do (including a section for kids) like Rome, Naples, Italian Brands Outlets etc.; local towns (lovely medieval towns on the sea and in the county side) and tasting tours (for example wine, mozzarella farms) and peals to discover outside the overrun tourists paths; Will be very easy to plan your stay and satisfy the preferences of everyone in your party.
