About this listing
This beautiful large apartment is ideal for large families with children , situated right in the center of Fondi, It is almost colonial and the rooms are very large with high ceilings and there are balconies in every room , This wonderful, unusual apartment used to be inhabited by the cardinals and a very famous Italian poet, Libero di Libero , It stands in a small courtyard with view of the Santa Maria Church and from the kitchen you can watch all the weddings and things that happen on the Church stairs, The wonderful thing about this place is the sense of space and history and a wonderful place to relax .
Fondi Sperlonga is halfway between Rome and Naples , you will find yourself plunged into "old Italy" with beautiful coastlines nearby , The main castle square if full of bars and it is fun to drink with friends and watch the locals strutt about.
Sundays there is a wonderful old clothes market, where fantastic bargains can be found ! The food is fantastic and the mozzarella is to die for!. It is surrounded by soft gentle hills that tempt you to explore and to get wonderfully lost.
I would advice a car to visit the local surrounding hill towns, and the beautiful beaches but if you want to visit Rome or Naples, take the train, (one hour,15 mins each way) , it is cheap and cheerful and much more relaxing !

The world is our home....Me and my family had been living in Nigeria and in Libya,between 2005 and 2009.We still miss our lovely little house in Tripoli near the sea...and that's why we bought this wonderfull appartement...just to escape from the noisy and caothic city whenever it is possible!
My mother is french she lives in Paris...so we spend our life travelling from Rome to Paris or Fondi...and thinking how lucky we are!
I hate to think that I will live in Rome forever,I want to travel and visit the world,with my daughters Giulia(8),Annalisa (7) and our beautifull cat Lola...
