Great place. The owners of the apartment are caring, attentive and friendly people. If there was any problem, it was solved within a couple of hours.
The property is located in a small mountain town and we would recommend a car rental if looking to rent in Formia, especially this property, as it is located on a steep hill. Both Letizia (the agent) and the hosts were very nice. Letizia arranged for the host to pick us up at the train station. Despite not speaking English, the host picked us up and gave us a tour of the town.
However, after being dropped off at the house, we were unimpressed with the accommodations. The listing boasted the entire house, while, in actuality, the property was the first level of the hosts' house with a sliding door connecting us to their quarters. It also listed as 2 bedrooms, but only turned out to be one. My husband and I were on our honeymoon, wanted privacy, and did not appreciate that we could hear every conversation the hosts had in their quarters no matter where we were located in the property. Additionally, the property had a musty smell upon arrival and triggered an allergy attack for me. My only relief was to step outdoors. The hosts only provided a quarter roll of bathroom tissue and there was a used hairbrush and hair clip left in the bathroom (presumably from a previous renter) and watered down hand soap. There were cobwebs in the bathroom and a can of raid left for us near the travel material. There were no trashcans located anywhere on the property and the refrigerator smelled of vinegar.
The property felt as though it was an afterthought of the hosts with table and glass service for about 20 and a wall of old books. The main curtains were controlled by a chain which was broken but taped together using electrical tape.
The property gives you a country feel, as the hosts raise chickens, which are penned next to the property and there are some fantastic cacti located on the property. While the outside boasts fantastic landscaping and views, the inside accommodations were not something we could recommend. Ultimately, my husband and I left the property after staying for only 1 of our 6 paid nights.
My friend and I stayed at the apartment for 7 nights. It is located in the center of the old town which was great as we probably wouldn't have gone up there as often. We were visiting Sperlonga primarily to lay on the beach all week so the space was perfect for the two of us. The apartment doesn't have wifi which was fine- there's local free wifi for an hour each day if you have data to get an SMS. As we are from Canada and our data was turned off, we couldn't receive the text to use the wifi but visited a local cafe (tropical bar... Which we loved) that had wifi. We had an issue with hot water, but Lucio (Letizia's colleague who brought us to the apartment) fixed it soon after we emailed him! I'd stay in sperlonga again :)
Bel appartement en plein centre-ville, même si la vue annoncée n'est pas celle de l'appartement mais de la cour intérieure, commune à d'autres appartements.
Bon accueil, mais l'agence a tardé à répondre lorsque nous avons été confrontés à un problème de panne d'eau chaude : résultat, on a passé les deux derniers jours à l'eau froide. Bains interdits et vaisselle pénible à faire. Malgré nos appels répétés, personne n'est venu alors résoudre ce problème... La fiabilité et la confiance n'étaient donc pas au rendez-vous.
