Splendid Place in Legendary Villa

Villa - Private room · Via Roma, San Felice Circeo, Lazio 04017, Italy

What exactly turns a simple story into a myth?Obviously the people who made it and since every place hosts the memories of the ones who passed by, this marvelous residence seems like having inherited the same enchanting power of the Witch Circe that Homer described in its literary masterpiece "The Odessey" as the owner of the area, a stunning beauty woman who could get any man she wanted (and then sadly turning them into pigs). Actually this place can get any man it wants: facing on the most beautiful panorama over the Circeo's Gulf but even on the Terracina and Sperlonga's ones, diving in a jubilation of plants and trees, its position is between the highest on the mount. The residence is a perfect mix of closed and open spaces, to enjoy the architecture of the house but even the stunning panoramas: that's why it is divided outside in many terraces with incredible views and equipped with beach chairs, a 14 meters swimming pool (from which it is possible to admire the panorama too), wonderfull garden, wood path in the heart of the Circeo's natural reservation, private bar, bocce court and inside in three double bedrooms, two one-single bed and one-double bed bedrooms,sitting room and relax point all of these furnished with a quite unique ancient boat-style, as if there was any need to remind of the legend that such a place enspired. The residence is really weel prepared to answer any of your needs: included breakfast, internet wifi, one bathroom for each room, private swimming pool, bar service (with payment on order) and possibility of dinner reservations. This place is simply unique and (service message) the ones who don't agree will be turned into pigs. Just kidding, it's just a myth ... Right?

  • We had a great time in the John Cabot Uni Apartment. On arrival we were welcomed with a delicious present and got some local tips for nice nearby restaurants. The apartment was spotless clean. It is very well equipped with all you may wish for including wifi, all kinds of kitchen equipment and a washing machine. The neighborhood is great and all highlights of Rome are at walking distance. Emiliano and Maria are very kind hosts and we could make agreements with them on arriving and leaving at the times that most suited us. All by all we strongly recommend them as hosts and this apartment.

  • The location is great, the apartment was clean, the bottle of wine waiting for us was well appreciated. Like a fool I locked myself out of the apartment. I called the host and someone came quickly to let me back in. The hot water in the shower does go fast as mentioned in other reviews; however, if you get wet, turn off the water, lather up, and then turn it back on to rinse off, it is enough. We where able to easily walk to everything we wanted to see and there are some great restaurants and bars near by.

  • Квартира очень хорошая, все как и ожидали компактная , уютная , чистенькая с прекрасной террасой , наш ребенок любил там по утрам ходить, квартира хоть в центре, но очень тихая слышали только как птички поют по утрам, (окна выходили все во дворики)на кухне все необходимое было даже вкусное оливковое масло. Расположение прекрасное все основные достопримечательности в шаговой доступности. В соседнем доме прокат автомобилей и рядом прокат велосипедов, но они как то странно работали , толи мы рано выходили то ли они запаздывали. Хозяева отличные заселили нас пораньше как мы прилетели, все было готово, хотя при переписки говорили что нужно будет подождать немного ,при отъезде мы попросили подольше побыть , так как вылет был в 12 ночи, они сказали если не будет заезда , без проблем, так и получилось!!! Предложили нам трансфер приехал колоритный итальянец Фабио, встретил вовремя и без проблем. Спасибо вам большое нам очень понравилось в вашей уютной Римской квартире уезжать не хотелось , надеемся приехать к вам еще)))!

  • As advertised, this is a bright and quiet place. The bedroom is spacious and the living room is especially large and comfortable. It's on the 5th (top) floor and the elevator is quick and reliable. The bathroom is a bit cramped, but is really okay. Emiliano and Maria are very helpful and have great neighborhood suggestions. The neighborhood is really the best part of this. Great restaurants and cafe's and all services. And if you have kids there's a really nice park/playground a block away. A 5 minute walk to the Testaccio market, which is truly fabulous. Across the river from Trastevere and a short walk to the Centro. Highly recommended.

  • We had a fantastic stay at Emilliano and Maria Luisa's apartment in Trastevere. The flat is spacious and very comfortable. Trastevere is the perfect area for visiting. Most of the streets are pedestrian, filled with cafes and restaurants. We would certainly be coming to this apartment again when we are next in Rome.

  • Emiliano was very responsive and available to answer questions. The person who greeted us there gave us also good advice to come from Termini train station.
    It was also very flexible in our hours of arrival and departure, which is great!

    We had nice days in Roma, the location of the flat is perfect!
    Few things:
    - That's not obvious in the description but there is almost no light from outside
    - The left pane of the glass door was broken so it was quite noisy and a bit cold in the night
    - We were 2 friends, we used the extra bed and the sofa, it was not praticale to use the double bed and the extra bed so i will more advice it for a couple.
    - For 2 people, the hot water was quite light

  • The host was very helpful and responsive to all the questions. The apartment was just as described, very nice. Location was great to visit Rome.

  • L'appartamento di Emiliano e Maria Luisa è ideale per passare dei giorni a Roma, sia per una vacanza che per un soggiorno di lavoro. Oltre a alla buona posizione, la casa è confortevole, pulita e (website hidden) siamo trovate molto bene.

  • Could have been a really great experience but was disappointing. We made arrangements to meet host at the apartment at 1:30 in the afternoon but no one met us outside so we had to go find a phone after waiting half an hour and call host. The location is nice, near the Pantheon and Campo di Fiori. The apartment: as advertised, many stairs. The elevator was very slow and tiny so we used the stairs all the time. The apartment was charming rustic and had a nice balcony but it was not clean. The bathroom tiles in particular were covered in mildew and the bathroom towels provided smelled like mildew. I ran a wet nap across the floor and it came up brown. The kitchenette also felt dirty, I was afraid to use either of the two teapots because it was corroded/dirty inside.
