Torrione San Giovanni I: equipped with Coco-mat® bed solutions in the two bedrooms: a touch of elegance while sleeping; therefore, this apartment will be confirmed as our best accomodation to be offered;
Torrione San Giovanni II (ready from May 2016): a new, cozy 70 square metres' apartment (2 bedrooms, living room plus a very nice verandah) located inside the same Roman tower; it will be offered at a very reasonable price; sea view, as usual, granted!
Torrione San Lorenzo: the smallest, but not the...lesser! It is located inside the opposite Roman tower, some 5 minutes walking from Torrione San Giovanni. Great sea view and elegantly equipped.
We hope that these 3 solutions could fit more people's desires: from a single/couple to 12/13 people wishing to spend some days off altogether in the old town of Terracina.
We really look forward to seeing you again in Terracina.
Some tips from our guests:
Stayed for seven nights, good location for all: amazing view, great historical look, not so far from the sea, markets and restaurants. A lot of interesting things in the apartments: books, magazines, paintings, furniture. Really a lot of space tastefully and comfortably equipped. Very good for family with 2 or 3 children - there are toys and many other. Very quiet. Maybe just one minus - too high to walk, but not for us))) Strongly recommend. (Vladimir)
Very nice apartments of quite particular décor in an old style (at least we thought so) and all the things needed are there. Location is perfect right in the center of the old city and about 15 min walk from the sea. But be prepared to climb steep staircases though amazing view from the windows worth this. (Ekaterina)

Interaction with Guests
Very much indeed
The old center of Terracina is still very typical, full of things to see and to do. The apartment is, probably, the best place in town, where to be.
It is perfectly connected to the railway stations of Terracina and Monte San Biagio. From the apartment you can easily visit Ninfa, Sabaudia, Circeo, Ponza, Fossanova, Sperlonga, Gaeta,...
