About this listing
Panoramic Villa placed on the hills of Gaeta, in an olive grove, 10 mins from Serapo beach. Ideal for relaxing, near the medieval town of Gaeta and other amazing beaches between Gaeta and Sperlonga. Expo 2015 in Milan....sea&sun 2015 in Gaeta??
"Casa degli Ulivi" (Home of olive trees) it's ideal for a family or a group of 4/5 friends. The only "noises" you will hear are the birds singing, the wind on the leaves, and some faraway cowbell.
After spending a lovely but tiring day full of "sea and sun" on the beach (maybe busy), what could be better than relaxing in a quiet and cool villa just outside the town?
The hill is 185 meters high and just taking a walk on the top you can enjoy the view of the bay, as shown in the picture. "Casa degli Ulivi" is only 95 meters above sea level.
There is a large living room with TV, Sky box decoder, DVD player with assortment of movies in English/Italian, 2 sofa beds, air-conditioning and fireplace - bright kitchen with external patio - bedroom with single bed + double orthopedic bed, with TV and satellite decoder with international channels - bathroom with shower + bath with panoramic view, washing machine.
The whole property: Kitchen, air conditioning, fireplace, TV sat, DVD player - inside.
3 Tables, benches, sun beds, deckchairs, umbrellas, shade cloth, gazebo, darts, ground pool, olive trees, barbecue - outside.

Enjoy your holidays in Gaeta!
Valerio's house in Gaeta was a peaceful getaway. It is up in the hills with nice fresh mountain air but just a few minutes drive to the sea-lovely beaches nearby, nice seafood, etc. I would definitely recommend the place in the summer to enjoy the nice outside patio for meals/relaxing. It is a bit cold to stay in the winter, but there is a fire place. There is a nice kitchen as well. Valerio came to meet us to help us find our way up to the house. He was courteous and helpful, indicating local places where we could eat, visit, etc. Thanks Valerio!
Thanks Amy, "unfortunately" you were my first winter guests, and I had not enough experience. But, as they say: "experience teaches!" and now there are in the house adequate blankets and I also proceeded to increase electric power in order to have more air conditioners running simultaneously.
Happy 2015 and see you again in Gaeta!
We stayed in Italy for two weeks and were in Gaeta for two nights. It was our favorite location that we stayed at the entire time and we definitely should have stayed longer. Gaeta is an amazing city. Great restaurants and good food, very friendly people. Lots of beaches and a few attractions to visit, so there is plenty to do to keep busy for a few days.
The villa was situated on hillside approximately 2.2 km to the bus stop. It was a beautiful villa with a large back patio. Views were amazing during the day as well as at night. Plenty of outdoor furniture to relax on. Not many bugs, but there is a bug zapper and bug repellents on the property for our use while outside. There was surely much care put into the construction of the villa.
Valerio was the best host that we could have possibly had. He was extremely hospitable and helpful. His spoken English is also very good.
Some considerations: 2.2 km doesn’t sound like a lot, but since the villa is located on a hill, if you don’t have transportation or aren’t fit this may be a problem. If you aren’t prepared for living in the country, this isn’t for you. There are some small lizards that roam the property, but nothing dangerous at all. They are quite common in Italy. There is an iron, but no ironing board.
If we come back to Gaeta we will be staying for longer than two nights at either this villa or (if we bring more people) Valerio’s bigger villa in Gaeta.
Thanks a lot, Donald! You and your family are the best guests I could have. It's a pity that your stay was so brief, there's much more to see and to appreciate in Gaeta and the surrounding area. I'm sorry for the ironing board, but it was (folded) under the main bed and I forgot to tell you!
ARRIVEDERCI A GAETA, with my great pleasure!
About the Host, Valerio
Sono un artigiano nel settore del legno e da buon artigiano aspiro sempre alla precisione ed alla cura dei dettagli.
Cordiale e sempre disponibile a venire incontro alle richieste degli ospiti, ho una discreta esperienza negli affitti, soprattutto mensili o anche pluri-mensili, esperienza fatta in altre case nel passato.
La villetta viene affittata per la prima volta quest'anno, essendo stata usata finora da noi di famiglia come seconda casa nei weekend estivi.
Ritengo che sia ideale per chi cerchi quiete e relax. Ad esempio dopo una bella ma stancante giornata di sole e mare, è bellissimo tornare in questa casa e rilassarsi in pace con sé stessi e con la natura che è intorno...
