About This Listing
Villa Anna is 600 mt from beaches and offers a 55 sq.m. apartment for 4 people surrounded by a large garden with sea views and equipped with many amenities including wifi, kitchen with dishwasher and oven, linens for bed, bath and kitchen.
Villa Anna is a large house surrounded by a garden of 1500 sq.m. from which you can admire the sea of Gaeta. The apartment for rent is located on the ground floor of the villa, has a floor area 55 sq.m. on one level, no stairs inside. From the outside area, which has stone benches and an outdoor table with umbrella, you enter the large and bright living area (30 sq.m.) with kitchenette with 4 burner stove, electric oven, refrigerator and dishwasher, dining table. The living area leads to a hallway, where there’s a single bed, and from which you can go to the bathroom and the bedroom (ATTENTION! hallway, bathroom and bedroom are basements, but with transom window). In the bedroom there are a double and a single bed. In addition to the shower located in the bathroom, there is an outdoor shower (hot and cold).
The house can accommodate a maximum of 4 people, and is ideal for a family with children (less suitable for two couples, as for the layout of the beds). The organization of the interior spaces is very clear looking at the floor plan loaded in the images. The property is accessed by an automatic gate (remote control supplied). Private parking in the garden (not covered, it’s in the yard, max 2 cars).
Usually Villa Anna is inhabited during summer: with regard to the use of outdoor spaces, some are of exclusive property of the apartment for rent, others pertaining exclusively the rest of the house, while others (garden, pergola, etc.) are shared. Villa Anna’s garden is shaded by many beautiful tall trees. No pets allowed.
AMENITIES AND FACILITIES: wifi internet, dishwasher, kitchen linen, refrigerator, electric oven, toaster, coffee maker "nespresso", kitchenware and kitchen utensils, outdoor table with umbrella and chairs, sun loungers, BBQ, bed linen, blankets, towels, outdoor shower (hot-cold), hair dryer, dehumidifier, washing machine, drying rack, iron, ironing board, parking, garden, DVD player.
The property is located in Gaeta in the so-called Contrada Catena, scenic residential area, 10 minutes walking distance (600 metres) from the beautiful beaches of Fontania and Ariana. The convenience of reaching 2 amazing beaches on foot without having to take the car will give an added value to your holiday! ATTENTION! Keep in mind that the path to the beach is not completely flat and includes a part downhill, not suitable for old people or with walking difficulties! A car will be useful to go in Gaeta center and have some shopping, and to see all the 10 beaches of Ulisse’s Coast, or to organize daily trips to Naples and Rome, Caserta, Pompeii, Sperlonga, etc. In the immediate vicinity of Villa Anna is a bus stop that connects to the center of Gaeta with line A of local transport (Cervone) and by bus Cotral Formia-Terracina. The frequency of these buses is not optimal, however, and I do not recommend relying on them. The nearest grocery store is 1 km away. The city center 2 km, while the old town is 4 km. Satellite photos show the geographic location of Villa Anna (purple dot).
Tips and activities: Gaeta is a great starting point to organize daily trips to Rome or Naples, Pompeii, or to visit the Royal Palace of Caserta, Sperlonga, Campo Soriano, the Abbey of Monte Cassino. Naples and Rome city center can easily be reached by train from the railway station of Formia-Gaeta. Gaeta means beautiful beaches within walking distance from home, and other equally beautiful reachable by car, but it also means walking in the Natural Park of Monte Orlando, on top of which you will find the funeral mausoleum of Lucius Munatius Plancus: do you think this structure, built in 22 BC, is the mausoleum of the Roman era best preserved in the world, older of the Colosseum! In Gaeta you’ll find pizzerias where you can taste the neapolitan pizza, as well as restaurants where you can taste the fish catch of the day!
Guests have access to the apartment on the ground floor of the Villa. Regarding the use of outdoor spaces, some are the exclusive property of the apartment just described, others pertaining exclusively to the rest of the house, and still others (the pergola, courtyard) are shared with the owners.
Interaction with Guests
I am often present in the house during the stay of the guests, if I’m absent for any reason, I make sure to be available by phone and have a trusted person who can intervene on the spot if necessary. If present on site, I am available to interact pleasurly with the host, to give advice on the permanence or solve any problems.
The main advantage of your stay at Villa Anna is being able to go to the beach without taking the car. In fact, two of the beaches of Gaeta ( Ariana Fontania ) are within walking distance with about 10 minutes walk. Keep in mind that the path to the beach is not completely flat and includes a part downhill, not suitable for old people or with walking difficulties!
The connection to public transport is with the A line of local Gaeta public transport.
The connection with the Formia-Gaeta railway station is with the Formia-Terracina bus, (Cotral Lines), who has a request stop right in front of Villa Anna, on State Road 213 Flacca at the intersection with Via Fontania. The frequency of these buses is not optimal, however, and I do not recommend relying on them.
For those arriving by car, the garden has a private courtyard that can accommodate up to 2 cars.
We stayed at Villa Anna at the end of August. Villa Anna is situated in silent beautiful place.The place of Villa Anna has a picturesque landscape of Mediterranean nature.
The apartments are well equipped and look nice and comfortable.
Federico is a very friendly and careful host. We thanks Federico for our good time in Gaeta.
We recommend this place for the rest on the beach and travelling to Roma, Naples and around the coast.
We want to say that our trip to Gaeta was one of the most awesome trips we have ever had in Italy! Villa Anna apartments were comfortable and we liked most of it! Federico is a very friendly and solicitous owner. He did everything to feel ourselves like at home. Thank to him we spent a really good time. Everything was useful, especially barbecue in a garden. Whole Gaeta city was interesting and exciting. We loved this place. We thank Federico for his hospitality and our nice vocations! And we recommend everybody to get unforgettable moments with Gaeta and Villa (website hidden)
Tomatoes were very tasty – we never tasted something like this!
We had a pleasant stay at Villa Anna. Federico and his mother are very friendly and helpful people. Federico has been able to even get my lost mobile phone back - grazie mille for that once more :) The appartment is well equipped with nearly everything a vacationer could need. We definitlely recommend Federico / Villa Anna as host and send best wishes from Austria! Stefan & Kathrin
Villa Anna in Gaeta was a perfect place to spend some days at the beach. Gaeta itself is also a very nice place. Federica was a perfect host! He gave us very useful directions before arrival and during our stay he even guided us to a great seafood dinner at Adriano Lido restaurant. The place was super clean and well stocked with everything you need for cooking. Much recommended!
We had great a vacation in Gaeta in august-september 2013 mostly thanks to beautiful Villa Anna and hospitality of Federico and his family. Villa Anna is shelted from the sun by huge cedars, that's why there are cool and breezy in hot summer days.
We rented a car at Fumicino in Rome, staying in villa Anna you'll need it. And you can use a car for little travels to nearby cities and numerous lovely beaches. Gaeta is great starting point for your exploring Lazio.
Villa Anna is great place for family with children: there are one double and one single bed in bedroom. It's clean and equipped with all necessary for comfortable living.
Gaeta is amazing, in my opinion the beaches in Gaeta are really the most beautiful and convenient for children.
If you like adventures and breathable views, want to see real Italy go to Gaeta, Villa Anna will allow you to have a good rest after days of awesome experience.
We had great time in Gaeta on Villa Anna in the second half of august. Very nice place (especially for the families with children) with all facilities. Located near by beach Ariana in walkable distance, apartment is a part of Villa Anna - big house belonging to the family of Federico Barelli. Federico very kind and pleasant, met us at the train station Formia-Gaeta and then took us back when we were leaving from the Villa Anna. The parents of Federico were very kind, they gave us advices about nearest attractions of Lazio, and were helped us with umbrella for a beach. The Villa Anna is located a little bit far away from the center of Gaeta, so you need to rent a car if you want to take a supper in restaurant or if you need to buy something in the supermarket and especially if you want to browse La Costa De Ulises ( Coast of Odyssey) with its wonderful cities Sperlonga, Terracina, Gaeta and attractions like park Monte Orlando, Grotta di Tiberio, Campo Soriano and so on. There is no problem rent a car in Gaeta in the "Eurocar".
The Gaeta is very conveniently located from the big cities, so trip to the Napoli and Rome may take about one hour by train or car. Also you may take a trip to the Pompei, it no so far from the Napoli. We had a wondrul trip to the Napoli, where we spent all day.
I very reccomend appartments on Villa Anna with garden in Gaeta, hosted by Federico and his family.
