Our apartments in Terracina:

Torrione San Giovanni I: equipped with Coco-mat® bed solutions in the two bedrooms: a touch of elegance while sleeping; this apartment is our best accomodation in town;
Torrione San Giovanni II: a new, cozy 60 square metres' apartment (2 bedrooms, living room plus a very nice outdoor loggia) located inside the same Roman tower; 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; elegantly equipped.

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)

This place is worth it for the views from the bedroom window. Really gorgeous, and waking up to the church bells was a nice touch. The one problem that is mentioned in other reviews is how difficult is to find. But once you do, and climb the steep flights of stairs, it's a nice stay in a beautiful coastal town. Comfortable bed and interesting artwork. Gioia was a big help directing my taxi driver on where to find the place. And she did her best understanding my English. Really kind of her to help me get a taxi for dinner. Highly recommend eating at Il Granchio -- amazing restaurant with a view.

This is the best to stay in Terracina, with spectacular views from every room. You're living in the heart of the unspoilt medieaval town here. A short walk from the Plaza del Municipio where you can sit and chat over an espresso at the bar of Cafe' del Duomo, run by Angelo and his lovely family, or order a cold drink and people watch in the beautiful ancient square. For great food to eat at home in Torriano, head down the main drag of Via Roma and turn right in to Via Sarti. Bottega Sarti has the best prosciutto, cheeses (try the fresh buffalo mozzarella, it's amazing!), bread, dried pasta and olives – it's a treasure trove for foodies. There's also a great fresh pasta shop (everything is dangerously delicious!), two good fruit and vegetable shops and a fishmonger on the same road. Walk back past Icescream, the artisanal gelato place on Via Roma, the best in town. Our host Emanuele was a pleasure to deal with, so helpful and friendly, as was Gioia (pronounced Joy), who lives nearby and looks after the place.

It is a must!!. The house is in the best possible location in Terracina, with nice views and charming decoration and walking distance from everything. I will just warn you if you have mobility problems as there are a lot of (charming) stairs to get to the house. In the house we also had some coffee, olive oil salt, vinegar so we didn´t have to buy it from day one. We loved the place.

Poitive: The flat was really nice, clean and big enough for 4 people. The kitchen was well equipt and had everything to prepare a nice italian pasta and a continental breakfast. The commumication with Emanulele was very easy and fast. The woman who gave us the keys and showed us the flat was also really nice and helpfull. We emptied the gas for cooking and she arranged everything for a new one within one hour. Many thanks for both of you. The view of the flat is amazing and wonderful. We will definitly come back. Negativ: The house is part of the old ancient city wall and so there is a variable numberging of the houses. It was only possible to find the flat with a really nice inhabitant.
