House Rules

Here follows some information that will help you enjoy our home and make the best of your vacation:
If you smoke, please do that on the terrace while stargazing, or while enjoying a cup of coffee on the terrace. The guests arriving after you will appreciate your consideration.
•WIFI is now unlimited
•Please use extra towels and linens only in case of emergency.
•If you break something please let us know so that we can replace it.
•If the stove runs out of gas (and unfortunately you will only realize it while cooking…), you can go, anytime any day, to the shop around the corner (coming out from the door on the street you go right and then right, the shop is immediately on your right), they will come and replace it. We ask you to pay for it (it will be less than 20 Euros) and we will refund you the next day.
•Please switch the air conditioning off when not at home. Electricity is very expensive in Italy and it will take only a few minutes to refresh the house when you come back home.
•Please be careful when opening and closing the sofa bed: it is not very intuitive so please use the instructions provided.
•Please close the umbrella in the terrace when not at home. The wind can pull it down and break it, or become dangerous for other people.
•Please mind your head when descending the stairs outside the apartment: after the first corner it is quite low…
•You will be provided with my telephone number, do not hesitate to contact me for any assistance. Have a nice holiday! Cecilia

Great stay, Gaeta was lovely and the accommodation allowed us a great place to explore it from.

First of all, Gaeta is a wonderful place to go! Small cozy town, beach nearby, charming people! We loved the place from the start! Secondly, Cecilia's place was a real treat! Right next of the old street, with real Italian people doing their normal tasks! It couldn't have been better situated, in a more genuine Italian place. The place was great for our family of four. Cozy and big at the same time! The smallest bedroom was a bit to small for our long legged teenager, but the sofa bed in the living room was a good substitute! And the roof terrace was wonderful! Also for drying our swim clothes. And Gianni who met us, was hospitality in person! Everything went so smooth! But be aware to use the address/map from Cecilia. Cause (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) has it wrong. I would definitely go back!

Ceclia's place was perfect to get that true italian feel, living amongst locals, eating breakfast on the rooftop terrace and just an easy 10 minute walk to the beach - plus plenty of shops just a 30 second walk down the street. The apartment was lovely, just as it looks in the photos. Everything was clean and easy to use and Gianni (the agent looking after the place) was lovely! He came by to meet us to hand over the keys, gave us a thorough explaination of how everything worked and even took us for a coffee at a local cafe. If you want to truely live an italian experience, this place is perfect.

very good location. Nice apartment. Kids also loved it. Cecilia had organized everything very well even though we didn't have chance to meet. Also people in Gaeta were very friendly and helpful.

We arrived at the Formina train station. From there we took the public bus to Gaeta. The ride took us about 20 minutes. The landlady Cecilia informed us earlier that day, that she wouldn't be able to welcome us in Gaeta but that a very nice man named Gianni would welcome us there. After we arrived in Gaeta we called him and he picked us up at the bus station five minutes later and walked us to our apartment. He was very nice and explained everything about the apartment and the city to us. Also he invited us to come over to his office to drink an espresso with him. We were only two people so the big apartment had a lot of space for us to discover, a very nice balcony, a nice kitchen and a typical Italian interior. The apartment has a very central position and is so close to all the charming little shops, bars, the city center and the beach. You would never need a car or a bus to move within the city of Gaeta. We have been there in September, so there were only a few other tourists there. That's why we experienced "the real Italian feeling" in Gaeta. And if we would have had any problems, Gianni wouldn't have been far away from us ;) He is a warm hearted lovely man that really takes his time to make you feel very comfortable. We enjoyed having coffee with him while listening to his stories. Gianni, we will miss you and your good sense for tasty Italian food :) To cut it short: it was a great trip! Living in this very nice apartment, having a great warm welcome and all the support you would ever need made our stay in Gaeta perfect. PS: Don't forget to try the local vino bianco, olives and calamari fritti!

We had a wonderful stay in Cecilia's apartment... Which was comfortable and full of character. The location was excellent, perfectly situated to provide a really authentic Italian experience. Our contact, Gianni, is a lovely man; he was super friendly and helpful and just around the corner if we needed any help or advice. 4 days was not enough!

Perfectly comfortable and lovely furnished space in charming surrounding, clean and equipped with all nessesery things. Every little detail is exactly like on the pictures. Cecilia is very accurate and always reachable host. Gianni is very pleasant person, positioned 100m away from the apartment, willing to help and answer all the questions. The grocery store is 5 min away. Fresh fish, vegetables and fruit can be bought just around the corner. We were group of six people. The apartment was big enough for all of us. Our teenagers liked small rooms very much. The terrace was not only for enjoying morning coffee, but for the conversation with neighbours across the street, as well. Italians are very open, worm and ready to chat. :) The position of the apartment (close to the bus station) gave us the opportunity to travel easily to Formia and then to Naples, Pompei, Sorento, Positano and Capri. The train is working perfectly and the tickets are cheap! By living in Cecilias unique apartment, we have seen Gaeta as it really is - safe, welcoming, good organised community with great history and beautiful beaches. To be in Gaeta and not to be in this lovely apartment and its unique neighbourhood - that would be such a shame! So, do not hesitate, go to this place and have unforgettable holiday!
