Our one-bedroom ground floor flat is situated in the historic centre of the town of Fondi, half way between Rome and Naples and a mere 12 kms from the chic resort of Sperlonga, with some of Italy's most beautiful unspoiled beaches and the spectacular ruins of the Roman emperor Tiberius' villa. Originally part of an old convent and an artisan's workshop, we have divided the space to create a kitchen-dining-room, a double bedroom and a small store room (without window) leading into the bathroom, equipped with shower and washing machine.

Fondi is a lively market town, off the main foreign tourist circuit, with a medieval castle, a charming old borgo and ghetto and a wide selection of excellent restaurants, cafés and boutique shops. Well placed for excursions, on foot or by car, with unique natural attractions, such as the cork tree forest at nearby Monte San Biagio, the Campo Soriano park of monolithic rock formations and the Grottoes of Pastena. The seaside port towns of Terracina and Gaeta are both near at hand.

The Lazio region

Fondi is half-way between Rome and Naples. Although, technically, in the Lazio region, the accent and laid-backness of its inhabitants will make you feel more like you're in Campania.

The city sits on the Ancient Appian Way and used to be an important gateway in ancient times. This means there is plenty to see around Fondi if you're into Roman times.

Just drive 20 kms towards Terracina and you can have an aperitif next to the astonishing Temple of Jupiter Nexus. Or see for yourself how Emperor Tiberius enjoyed eating freshly caught fish in a cave next to his seaside villa at Sperlonga.

Fondi is surrounded by mountains and this makes its land extremely fertile which means the food is good (there is also one of the biggest fruit and vegetables markets in Europe).

You can drive up the mountains and visit Campo di Mele to find out why its inhabitants have one of the highest longevity rating in the world, or visit one of the most amazing caves you will ever come across in Pastena.

And, finally, Sperlonga beach. I have to say this because I'm not normally into beaches. There are plenty of places to sunbathe around, like Circeo and Fondi itself, but Sperlonga is of a class of its own. The view is spectacular with hills behind, the imposing city of Sperlonga on the side and, in front, crystal clear waters. This beach always gets a blue star and there is a reason. The abundance of fish swimming around is very reassuring as well as entertaining to watch when snorkelling.

Latina

Fondi can be something of a revelation. The people are extremely friendly and you can really spend a relaxing holiday there.

There is plenty to see around: ancient roman baths, medieval castles, cobbled streets, trendy boutiques. In August the city really comes to life with all sorts of festivals and seaside events. The inhabitants even elaborate a complicated assault on the castle to commemorate the defence of their city against foreign invasions.

Don't expect much of a night life, but if you're into good food and warm evenings in the open air, then you will really enjoy it and, if you're looking for clubs and discos, there are plenty of those in Sperlonga.

"Cosy apartment near beautiful beaches of Sperlona"

We had a wonderful week in this cosy apartment in the centre of Fondi.
The apartment is simple, but functional and is located on a cobbled street which quickly takes you to the medieval centre and all the shops you need. The town is genuine and the locals are extremely friendly. We even had the best pizza we ever tasted at the I Maurizio Pizzeria.
There is a lot to see around Fondi, but once we saw the beach of Sperlonga, there was little else that we wanted to do apart from sunbathing there and swimming in the crystal clear water. Definitely one of our best holidays.
