The space

This is a special little apartment for short term rental, in the medieval castle town of Sperlonga. The town is 110 km South of Rome and 100 from Pompeii. Sperlonga's old town is 1000 years old, perched on a rock on the MEditerranean sea. Form our place you can reach the sandy beach with 200 easy steps. If you prefer to take it easy a 10 minute free van ride can get you there. Our place is comfortable and private in summer, spring and fall. The overall area is perfect for two, with a loft above a common area. The windows on the west and north-east sides provide excellent cross-ventilation. Please note that there is no internet, but the house instructions include directions to nearby free wi-fi access.

During summer you can take a day-trip to any of the nearby Pontine Islands. Local boat trips to the Blue-grotto or other special swimming spots are easily available. In winter, the town is quiet and magical, suited for romantic retreats or a writer's journey. The local cuisine is famous for its mix of fish, vegetables and the world famous local Buffalo-milk mozzarella.The art history scene won't disappoint you, as Sperlonga is named after the "Spelunca" (Grotto) ordered by Roman Emperor Tiberius to grace his summer residence. The Sperlonga Museum displays statues of Ulysses made by Greek Sculptors of the period.

- trains leave every hour, posted on the boig board as NAPOLI.

House Rules
Check in is anytime after 2PM

Our private summer house in Sperlonga, Italy is called affectionately. "Casetta", "The little house". This is for two reasons: a) it is a cozy 30 square meters in size and b) it was our family space, and we love it as is, with hand-paintings made by our kids and all.

The house is rented out for 2 people max. If you have a young child aged 8
or older, please don't allow use of the loft upstairs. We have no special insurance for accidents.

Please respect the neighbors downstairs, and have good manners in general. In the old town many folks are older and heavy music loudness after midnite is considered impolite.


Please: no smoking & no pets.

We had an excellent time staying at Danny & Daniela's place in Sperlonga. The small, cosy apartment is perfect for at couples getaway. Nice to be able to cook your own meals in the well-assorted kitchen. A convenient draft keeps the apartment nice and chill, if you open both windows, and you can enjoy a book and a drink and a view of the sea from the windowsill, if you don't feel like going to the town square or the beach. Danny was extremely nice and helpful with tips for the local area - which was pretty quiet and relaxed in July. We would be happy to come back.

We had a fabulous time at Danny and Daniela's "Casetta". It is indeed a very special and comfortable getaway with interiors well conceived with the use of space and choice of furnishing. Their children's clever and humorous artwork on the kitchen tiles makes the place even more endearing. We enjoyed sleeping on the mezzanine with the lovely view of rustic roofs and the sea. The flat is situated in the centre of a "car-less" historical area where local cuisine is constantly scrumptious and beaches in close proximity. There are other interesting attractions easily accessible (e.g. Pompeii, boat trips) if one desires further out of town adventure. Dolce far niente in idyllic surroundings... We loved it!!!

The Sperlonga apartment exceeded our expectations. It's an efficient little space with great light and and an ocean view. It is situated directly adjacent to the square—with shops and cafes all around—and the beach is a beautiful five minute walk down either side of the hill. Daniel and Daniela truly have a gem of a getaway here, and we intend to return. Highly recommended.

This is a perfect hideaway in Italy. The unique town of Sperlonga is rich with history and modern simple pleasures. Danny works with film and Daniela leads groups of food-lovers to Italy. We are currently based in Sweden.
