I was born in Gaeta and I live here in my hometown. I like traveling and playing the piano. The simplicity and authenticity are my research.
We stayed in Francesco's apartment with our 2 small children for several nights in September 2013. We communicated well with Francesco by email before our stay and he struck us as being reliable and genuine, and so he was, when we met him in person! His apartment is on the ground floor of a building of 3 apartments and other members of his family live in the other apartments. It is very private and secure (including to park your car), has been recently renovated, so is modern and comfortable. The location has positive and negative aspects. It is located on a busy road, so the back bedroom was a little noisy if the window was open (but quite tolerable so don't let this put you off) but on the plus side, it was a short walk by foot to Via Indipendenza (a lively old street in the heart of Gaeta) via an unusual access (directly in front of the apartment under the road). I should note that there were a lot of steps to get down to Via Indipendenza but we managed this even with children, so it would not be an issue for most people.
Francesco runs his apartment as a bed and breakfast and provided a simple continental breakfast of fresh croissants, fruit, juice and coffee. He was very helpful and willing to assist us in any way during our stay, especially in relation to things to see around Gaeta, even offering to drive us to places if need be. The WiFi worked well and we liked that there were maps and information about Gaeta inside the apartment for us to read.
Although it is possible to access a number of points of interest from this apartment on foot, we think it is best suited to people with a car, as it is not directly in the centre of town but all major points are only a short drive away.
We had a very comfortable stay at Francesco's place. He is a kind and friendly host and we would certainly recommend his apartment to others!
Gentilissimo il nostro ospite Francesco che ci è venuto a prendere sul lungomare per portarci in uno delle più belle case possibili.
Si parcheggia sotto gli alberi d'arancio e si entra in un a accoglientissima casa fornita di tutto. Due bagni, una cucina fornita, aria condizionata ed un ventilatore a soffitto silenzioso e di charme.
E la sorpresa sono le brioches calde con la crema che Francesco porta la mattina!!!

Super nice place - clean, bright, tastefully decorated, well-furnished. B&B has 2 bathrooms, big well-equipped kitchen, terrace. Francesco has made everything to make our staying pleasant and comfortable: took us to the best beach in Gaeta, helped to rent a car, was always friendly and supportive,even played for us little jazz concert before departure ;-) We fully enjoyed vacation in Gaeta and suggest everybody this lovely town!
Совершенно замечательная квартира, состоящая из двух спален, гостинной, двух ванных комнат и кухни. Просторно, уютно, комфортно. Замечательный хозяин. Очень гостеприимный, делал все, чтобы нам было хорошо. Встретил на вокзале, возил по всем достопримечательностям, готовил завтраки и даже угостил ужином с типичной итальянской кухней, который приготовил сам. И все бесплатно и с большым желанием. Прямо как лучший друг! Правда нам повезло, что было воскресенье и Франческо не работал в этот день. Хорошее расположение квартиры. Пешком можно дойти до пляжа и старого города. Все очень понравилось. С удовольствием пожили бы у Франческо снова!
Francesco is very kind-hearted and easygoing. When we arrived, he brought us from the railway station and presented a bottle of wine.
The b&b is very comfortable and clean. Francesco changes towels and lines. Our apartments consisted of three rooms, two bathrooms and kitchen.
If it was necessary, he always drived us in different places. Also he has another dignity he speaks English. Because a few people in Italy speak English.
And Gaeta is very picturesque and calm city. There is great park Monte Orlando and wonderful beach.
