The Space

A modern flat, literally 5 minutes from a wonderful sandy beach. It is completely equipped on the first floor, perfect for a family with children or two couples with its 2 bathrooms. Private parking lot where you can park & forget the car to enjoy the little village amenities all at walking distances via lovely strolls with your flip flops.

Off the high season I usually apply special pricing to couples or to weekends (2 nights), so do not hesitate to contact me sending a booking request, I usually (try to) reply to each request as fast as I can.

The flat is ideal for one-two full family(ies). On the first level after few, like 10, comfortable steps. It would be the second level for people from the USA.
It is in a little recent building with private garden and space for car parking. Children can play in the garden unsupervised as there is a gate and wall that divides it from the public street (very little car traffic thought).
It has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms plus lots of shared space in the kitchen and living room and balconies. There is also a practical couch that becomes a full single bed (not in the picture).

The flat has heating but no AC as it is facing North-East so it takes sun only during the morning and never becomes hot even in the summer.
Absolutely no smoking policy in the house but there are 2 balconies for that, please respect the flowers.

It is in the modern part of the village, supermarket, coffee bar, pizzerias and restaurants are all at (really short) walking distances: you can forget the car!

The public transport is less than 5 minutes away, public service by ACOTRAL or Piazzoli bus service from the Fondi-Sperlonga train station with trains from Rome Termini(1h) and Naples(1 and1/2h) every hour.

Sperlonga is one of the top 100 destination for Italy. Sandy beaches and lovely people, Italian hospitality and very well organized summer station. Sperlonga sea has constantly been awarded with the blue flag for decades. a little jewel indeed.

Guest Access

The flat is at your complete disposal, apart of a little room where I stuffed all my personal things, locked by a simple gear.

Interaction with Guests

I won't be always present in Sperlonga but I will make sure you will get the best welcome from my friend, plus my parents run a Hotel close by so that you'll always have reliable people even if I'm not there!

  • We had such a great time at Giuseppe's apartment. It was the perfect set up for us he even set up two pack n plays for our little one at no extra cost. Traveling was my husband and I as well as our 18mo son. The apartment was quite at night which was a huge plus for our light sleeping baby, very spacious and an open kitchen. Sperlonga was the perfect destination spot with kids. It felt like everyone had children and there were so many great places for them to run wild.

    I would recommend this spot to anyone looking to relax after or before the madness of Roma.

  • The apartment pros and cons
    Pros
    Communication attentive
    Check in check out smooth
    The public beach 10 min walking
    Size of apartment pretty large about 75 square meters
    Cons
    Dirty the bed was full of sand even though Giuseppe send someone to clean the next morning we still had to sleep there this things should be anticipated
    When I book an accommodation I expect to be clean when I also pay 35 Euro for cleaning fee it's unacceptable to find a dirty accommodation
    Furnished
    I know the add does not include the following items but I guess being in 2014 should have at least the basic
    TV
    Hair dryer which was provided the next day
    Iron press
    Shampoo ,shower gel ,next day provided
    If you just need a roof on your head , a place to shower and a kitchen to warm up food and a bed to sleep this is the perfect accommodation for you
    If you are looking for something a little more like the basic stuff you can find something else and also for less money.

    Response from Giuseppe:

    Yes, the sand was there but definitely not at the beginning, in fact the check-in went well as the flat was initially clean. The sand was NOT coming from the bed sheet but rather coming from an old blanket taken from a wardrobe that has been used and put there again (now all the items in the wardrobe are double tested for cleanness each time). The guests had the opportunity to sleep in the second bedroom (clean) that was made available to them at no extra fee as well as the two baby coats (no mention of this extra items in the guest's reference). The extra cleaning has been done the following day 30 minutes after received the complain about the sand and at NO extra cost. Maybe in the 60's a TV box was a must for each flat, nowadays in the 20th century we got rid of it (fortunately). Everything requested (hair drier and more shampoo) has been provided as soon as requested but definitely it is not usually included in the basic stuff (nor explicitly stated). Yes, the flat furniture is minimalist and functional for your visit to a beach place, nothing more, nothing less, BUT there is no cheaper equivalent unless you choose a location out of the city or at the top of the old village (romantic indeed but not feasible for families with babies and definitely not so close to the beach). I regret that after providing extra cleaning and items for free the guest review was dealing only with (extra) items being not found and not mentioning at all the (extra) items provided for free. Anyway, I understand that, once fixed the initial issue with the sand, Maria's family enjoyed the visit to Sperlonga, as everything went well.

  • Now this was a lovely holiday! The appartment of Giuseppe was pretty basic, but well equipped with a large kitchen, basic furniture in the living room, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a small balcony on which we had breakfast every day in the sun.

    Although we didn't see Giuseppe during our stay because he was out of town, it was very nice to be hosted by him. His communication is amazingly fast and friendly. The appartment was clean and we were welcomed by a very friendly friend of Giuseppe's. Her English was very limited, but she was super nice and it was not a problem to communicate with her. Everything practical went smooth and fine.

    I travelled with my friend and we loved the fact that the beach is at walking distance. We traveled in September and the beach was empty and the weather was so good, it was very hard to leave! The old town is lovely for a walk as well, such a beautiful scenery and a great seaview from the part high up the hill.

    In conclusion, we loved to stay in Sperlonga and Giuseppe was a wonderful host. We'd definitely recommend him and would love to come back one time! Thanks Giuseppe :)

  • Our stay in Sperlonga at Giuseppe's apartment was fantastic! He responded immediately to our booking request and, although he lives in the North, promptly answered every question we had, all the while recommending activities and restaurants in the Sperlonga area.

    The apartment itself is simply decorated, but clean and spacious (we were 3 but enough room for 6). Being a block away from the beach means that you don't spend much time inside, anyway. We had all the necessary cooking and cleaning equipment available to us. As one other reviewer remarked, a couch would be a nice addition, but a lack thereof did not put a damper on our time there. I would happily return to Giuseppe's apartment on the beautiful Tyrrhenian coast! Grazie mille!

  • Хорошая просторная квартира рядом с пляжами. Прелестный городок Сперлонга.Единственное, что во дворе дома не поливают газон и он совсем высох.В остальном, все замечательно.

  • My husband and I, along with our two children (ages 2 and 7 months) and our friend stayed at Giuseppe's for a week in the beginning of July. Sperlonga is a wonderful beach town, especially for a family with young children. It is a quiet town and the beach is very mellow. There is also an area where children can go on a merry go round, trampolines and a small train. It costs 1 euro per turn and was well worth the money. Our son loved it!

    Giuseppe was a wonderful host. He was always available by email and did everything within his power to make our trip a comfortable one. We found the apartment to be spacious enough for our family. one downside of the apartment was that it did not have a couch. Giuseppe has mentioned that he will be getting a couch in the future and this would make a big difference (particularly if you have young children and spend time at home during the day for naps ect...). The apartment was very close to the beach and amenities. There is also a lovely cafe just next door to the apartment that has wonderful baked goods.

    We would stay here again.

    Thanks Giuseppe!
