About this location
The Lazio region
The Lazio region of central Italy, is located on the Tyrrhenian side of medium and occupies 17,207 km ² of the Italian territory, extending from the Apennines to the Tyrrhenian Sea.
The territory has no physical homogeneous, rather it is characterized by its diversity, with a predominance of mountainous and hilly zones, lowlands are found mostly near the coast.
It is mainly hilly region: 54% of its territory is occupied by hilly areas, 26.1% from mountainous areas and the remaining 19.9% ??by plains.
Starting from the north west of the region, there are three distinct mountain ranges of modest dimensions: Volsino, the Monti Cimini and Sabatini Mountains. A common feature of these mountain ranges is their volcanic origin, as evidenced not only by the geological features, the presence, in each of these, a lake, Lake Bolsena on Volsini, Lake Vico on Cimini and Lake Bracciano on Sabatini.
These mountain ranges descend gently to the Maremma plain to the west, and from the Tiber valley to the east, the two most northern plains of Lazio. The Maremma here its southern limit in the Tolfa mountains.
In the east of England are the highest mountains in the region, reaching with the Monti della Laga in 2458 m. Mount Gorzano their highest point. This, this, a portion of the Abruzzi Apennines, which runs diagonally from north to south. Here we also find the mountain groups of Reatini Monti, Monti Sabini Mountains Cicolano, the Mountains of the Duchess of Simbruini, Monti Cantari and Ernici.
In the medium southern Lazio, starting from the Colli Albani, we find a whole series of other mountain ranges that run parallel to the Apennines, which are separated by the valley of the Ciociaria flowing with Sacco and Liri-Garigliano, ending their run in the Tyrrhenian Sea in near the border with Campania, it comes Lepinis of Ausoni and Aurunci.
The Gulf of Gaeta.
Even the Alban Hills, hills of small size, are of volcanic origin, and even here the volcanic lakes are numerous: the lakes of Albano and Nemi, the lake basin of Ariccia now dry lakes and fossils of Juturna (in the Forum Roman, at the Temple of Vesta), Valle Marciana (Grottaferrata) and, to the north, Pantano Secco (Mount Compass), Prata Pigs (Tusculum) and Castiglione (or lake of Gabii).
Cala source in Ponza and Palmarola background.
The area of ??Rome is occupied dall'Agro Romano continues to the south, always following the coastline, the Agro Pontino, which until the reclamation operated from 1930 to 1940, was covered by marshes.
The coast of Lazio is very regular, low and sandy, but despite this there are the "bosses" as the Capo Linaro south of Civitavecchia, the mouth of the Tiber, between the cities of Rome and Fiumicino, south of the river are in succession the promontory Anzio and Nettuno, Monte Circeo, which stands isolated between land and sea, and the promontory of Gaeta, near the border with Campania.
Gaeta is located right in front of the Pontine Archipelago, consisting of six small islands, all of volcanic origin.
The Tiber River is the largest river in the region, and there comes from Umbria, first with a trend towards the south-east, but then bends to the south-west, crossing the whole Roman plain to the sea. The main tributaries of the Tiber and Paglia Treia, on the right side, and the Black and Aniene on the left side.
Further south, a trend reminiscent of the Tiber find Sacco and Liri-Garigliano, while in the northern part of the region there are other smaller rivers like Fiora, Marta and Arrochar, which descend directly into the sea with a During relatively short.
Protected within the sea of the Tirrenic coast, Gaeta is an important city in the Province of Latina, full of ancient history and testimonial art.
Known for its scenery, mild climate and its fascinating blue sea and blue sky, Gaeta is a territory in between two seas, where its extreme point gives ground to the fascinating Regional Monte Orlando Park protected by the Riviera di Ulisse.
As it is an old city it is rich in history and according to its legend her name comes from the Nursing mother of the Greek hero Enea, which her name was Caieta. Later becoming the city of Gaeta.
It has been always know as a sailing port and then taken over by the Bourbon Kingdom until it became part of the United Italy.
There are numerous places to visit in Gaeta: the sanctuary of the Montagna Spaccata, the Old Gaeta famous for its architecture and churches; the Diocesano Museum wich holds the biggest collection of the southern Lazial art, Monte Orlando which has the ruins of the Bourbon Reign.
You can also visit Gaeta by sea, taking excursions around the magnificent beaches or renting your private boat.
Traveling along the coast of the Via flaca by car you can visit the famous beaches of San Vito, Arenauta, Ariana, Quaranta, Remi and Saint Agostino. It is in one of these beaches where Caita was buried by Eneas.
Then topping it off you have the Beach of Gaeta where you will see one km. of white sand beach and transparent water serviced by private beach facilities and restaurants.
Besides having wonderful beaches, Gaeta also attracts Mountain Climbers. There is a 359mt. rock wall in Monte Moneta that faces the Saint Agostino Beach. Most frequented by free climbers.
Typical gastronomic dish of the area is the tiella di Gaeta, describing it as a stuffed rustic pizza with different types of green vegetables, fish, and shell fish; all to be tasted for an exquisite mouthwatering experience. Also famous is the Olive of Gaeta (or Itri) which has a most unique flavor to be eaten fresh or cooked

"Met with all our expectations and more"
Loved this Villa. First family holiday abroad. Are family consisted of 6 adults and two children aged 4 and 8. Stayed at the Villa for Two whole weeks as family wedding nearby in Sperlonga.
If staying at this Villa one would need a car as the main road is a good 15 minute walk downhill from the Villa.
It is definately not an area which one could go for walks in comfort due to the many dogs in the neighbouring gardens. The location of the Villa is within a short driving distance of Gaeta, Itri, Formia and Sperlonga so a very central location.
As the Villa is situated on the side of a mountain, again as expected, the last 200-300metres of road is quite bumpy. Drivers need to take care to mind their car on the bumps and over growth on either side of the road.
Villa was as suggested on the website. Well maintained and comfortable inside with beautiful spacious garden with fruit trees, in season, and plenty of interesting bugs and insects for children and adults alike to marvel over. Our two little girls really enjoyed this aspect to the Villa.
As expected the Pool was not suitable for smaller children (our four year old needed fulltime support while in the water). Spent many days lounging by the pool and in the outdoor terrace. More comfortable furniture in the outdoor lounge area/terrace would have been welcomed but overall the Villa is well maintained and has all necessary modcons.
I would be hesitant to return to this Villa due to the noise of the barking dogs which guarded the neighbouring fruit gardens along the mountain-side. Without the racket of the barking dogs the location would be peaceful and the Villa would be far more enjoyable.
