Positive points : we were well welcomed by Giuseppe and Maria, Michelina's parents. They speak french fluently, and given that we are french, it was easier for us. Michelina helped us a lot to find the place, by sending us several emails. Possibility to park, garden with a lot of space (like in the picture). TV is provided.
Negative points : VERY humid. A bit shaky, more than it is visible on the pictures. Many mosquitos (even though sprays are provided), especially in the garden. The fridge is a bit noisy. NO WIFI.
Be aware that ten euros are asked to have covers to sleep (it is written in the description, but we hadn't seen it).
Il Sig. Giuseppe è stato molto gentile e (website hidden) ha accolto con un grande sorriso e ci ha anche dato consigli su dove acquistare dell'ottima ricotta !
Il bungalow è facile da raggiungere. Si trova in un giardino molto spartano, munito di meravigliosi alberi e pecore :), ma decisamente fresco e silenzioso. L'arredamento è essenziale.
Siamo state bene e siccome accanto al bungalow che abbiamo prenotato ce ne è uno identico, speriamo di tornare anche con altri amici.
The bungalow studio is located in the peaceful back yard of Michelina's parents. It is clean and though there is no air conditioning, the temperature inside is always at around 20 °C. We did not meet Michelina, though she responded quickly to text messages. Giuseppe and Maria were very friendly and accomodating. Both of them speak Italian, French and German, so communication was never a problem. (They do not speak English, however!) Giuseppe picked us up at the train station free of charge. They also gave us tomatoes and lemons from their own garden, let us use their parasol and beach chairs, invited us for coffee several times and let us play with their pets. Giuseppe's workshop is right beside the bungalow and he regularly came by to check if we needed anything, to make a small chat or to teach us a couple of words in Italian.
The beach is very close to the bungalow, is regularly cleaned and is not too crowded during weekdays. (Be sure to set up at the right of the St Anastasia bridge, since the sea itself is not very clean at the left side due to a canal exit.) There are two grocery shops, a restaurant and a pizzeria nearby, as well as a couple of snack bars on the beach itself. If you're interested in sight seeing, there are also bus stops to the nearby (8-10km) towns of Sperlonga and Terracina.
One thing to note is that there are a LOT of mosquitos. Though we brought mosquito repellant spray and were provided with anti-mosquito "incense" (outside) and tablets (inside), both of us already had more than sixty bites on the morning of the third day. People who are highly allergic to insect bites should probably look for other accomodation.
Another downside is that the region is not very pedestrian-friendly. There are hardly any side walks. To get to the beach you (shortly) have to walk alongside a road with traffic doing 80 kph and cross a big rotunda. Cash payment seems to be preferred in most of the shops in the region. Unfortunately the closest ATM is in a neighboring village, 20-25 minutes of walking in one direction. Most of this again right next to traffic doing 70 kph. These walks can be intimidating, so if you're planning on doing it by foot like us be sure to bring enough cash for the entire stay. Alternatively, take the bus to Fondi and do your shopping there. Of course, if you come by car this will be no problem at all.
That being said, it's a nice bungalow with a beautiful garden, the beach is close, shops and restaurants are nearby, there's easy access to the bigger towns and the hosts are two of the nicest people you will ever meet. If you don't mind the inconvenciences, this studio is definitely worth a visit!
We had a great time in the bungalow at Rio Claro. The beach is very close and it has everything one needs for a couple of days for a relaxing stay. The hosts are great and are there for anything you need. Thanks a lot Giuseppe
It was very nice at the Bungalow. Also the partents of michelina were very helpful and friendly. From the Bungalow You can Look to some Mountains or hills which is also very pretty in the evening. Hope we will come back! Take care, Claudia + Bil
Il bungalow è piccolo ma c'è tutto, il giardinetto è fantastico e ottimo per i barbecue!
Per entrare si passa attraverso un prato con 4 pecore :)
L'ospitalità è stata molto cordiale, i caseifici con la mozzarella di bufala fresca dietro l'angolo e il mare con i baretti sulla spiaggia a 5 minuti a piedi.
Unica nota: in certe ore del giorno ci sono troppe zanzare. Ma in mezzo al verde è così.
In generale il giudizio è molto buono, considerando anche il rapporto qualità/prezzo.
Great place to stay and great hosts to meet. The bungalow was clean, functional and really nice, with all you can possibly need for a relaxing stay. and the garden was lovely and ideal to cool down after a day on the beach. The sea and food shops are at short walking distance. Michelina and her family are very friendly and helpful and gave us great tips about the local area. I definitely recommend this place!!!
Very clean and quite we hardly knew they were here....
Michelina was a fantastic guest as she left my flat very clean and tidy She is also a very nice, friendly and polite person What else shall I say?It was a real pleasure to host her. Highly recommended
