This was the house of my grand father and it's fully renovated by our hands. We have a special bound with it so please respect the stuff inside. We will appreciate your kindness.
Abbiamo soggiornato a "La Papengola" il weekend del 1° Maggio in 4 adulti più una bambina di 2 anni. I genitori di Stefano ci hanno accolto con gentilezza e disponibilità estrema. L'appartamento è molto carino, luminosissimo ed adatto ad accogliere 4 adulti. Anche per la bambina non ci sono stati problemi di spazi. Ambiente pulito e posizione ottima per raggiungere sia le spiagge che il centro di Gaeta. Parcheggio libero sotto casa per entrambe le nostre macchine. Per quanto riguarda il rumore del traffico segnalato da altri ospiti nessuno di noi ha avuto difficoltà a prendere sonno ma è pur vero che per chi come noi vive a Roma l'inquinamento acustico è la normalità.
Consigliato su tutti i fronti.
We stayed in Stefanos appartment for 7 days and had a great time in Gaeta. Such a lovely little coastal city with so many points of interest, great restaurants and charming beaches. Even though we didn't meet Stefano personally, his parents were there for us.
The appartment is really nice and seems to be new. Generally speaking it was clean, but unfortunately we seems to have a different opinion of cleanness so that there were a few things to complain about.
However we had always the chance to contact Stefano and he helped us with tips for restaurants and we had the possibility to use two bikes which are usually not included. Very nice! Thanks for that,Stefano!
There is one last thing to say: If you have problems to sleep with noises, maybe this apt is not the best choice because it is right on a main road and the window insulation is not the best and if there are guest in the apt above one hear the drainage line, which can be really annoying.
But all in all we can recommend the apt!
Our stay at Stefano's apt was really great! Even though we didn't meet Stefano personally, his father made sure we felt at home.
The appartment was just lovely, very clean and in a great area.
The only thing that became a bit of a problem for us was the noise outside. As the appartment is on a main road, you can hear the traffic all the time.
But we really enjoyed our stay and we will be back for sure!
La casa è bellissima come si vede dalle foto, dotata di tutti i comfort necessari. Il parcheggio è proprio sotto casa ed è gratuito (grande vantaggio a Gaeta). Siamo stati accolti dai genitori di Stefano persone davvero gentili e disponibili ma soprattutto per niente pressanti come capito spesso con altri proprietari. Di sicuro ci ritornerò.
Grazie per avermi fatto trascorrere tre giorni di totale relax.
Had a brilliant 3 nights stay with my boyfriend in Gaeta. The place was clean and done up beautifully. Stefano's Dad was so helpful and showed us maps of places to visit and eat out. It's within east access of Seripo beach and near enough the old town which is 100% a visit, amazing architecture and great seafood! We will definitely go back and my sister is already thinking of booking! Grazie Stefano!!
L'appartamento è molto carino e ben arredato, posizione ottima per raggiungere il mare oltre che negozi e ristoranti. Si trova però lungo la strada quindi di notte è un po' rumoroso. Nel complesso ci siamo trovati molto bene

About the Host, Stefano
Trentenne, alto quanto basta, magro quanto basta, viaggiatore fai da te che non disdegna più il campeggio anche libero (mai stato in un villaggio vacanze). Amante della buona cucina cucinata e delle chiacchere in larga compagnia, con la passione per la musica, soprattutto swing, i balli anni '40 e le arti applicate (il giardinaggio rientra in questa categoria). Con una pistola puntata alle spalle tra gatti e cani preferisco i gatti.
Infine, informazione culinaria che non guasta mai, mia madre fa un'ottima tiella (pizza ripiena ricetta tipica gaetana), io sto ancora imparando ma spero di superare la maestra.
