Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
This villa has been cherished by our family for over 30 years and was built by my father. It is an ideal location for anyone on either their first visit to Italy, for anyone who wants to explore the local area of Lazio further or who wants to have a beach holiday.
This area of Italy is not very well known to foreign tourists, but most Italians know this area very well and regularly use it as a holiday destination, especially to go the seaside. However, the area has far more to offer. As it is an agricultural area, there is a wealth of vegetables and fruit sold from farms.Farms also produce cheese, especially buffalo mozzarella, sausages and meat, all locally produced. This is just a small flavour of what there is in the area. There are not many detailed guides in English on the area, so I started a blog of my own to start to record some wonderful places there are to visit in this region - http://travelsaroundlaziowithliz.blogspot.co.uk/ Please visit and let me know what you think!

The villa has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a lounge, a dining room, a kitchen, a front terrace and a back terrace, a large garden and an outdoor barbecue. The house is big enough for 6 people to comfortably stay in.

The Lazio region
The villa is in a small farming village in the region of Latina, Lazio about 100km south of Rome- very near the beach resorts of Sabaudia, Terracina and San Felice Circeo. The National Park of Circeo (a nature reserve) is a stone's throw away for those who enjoy cycling and walking. The mountains are a little further away, but a 45 minute drive could get you to the delightful historic mountain village of Sermoneta or to the Abbey of Fossanova. You could even visit the centre of Rome by train for a day and then relax back in the countryside! The area has a lot to offer at any time of the year and is as yet little known by British tourists.
Local Facilities: The village is about 5 minutes walk away from the house. There are 3 supermarkets, 3 bars, a post office, ATM, a chemist, a newsagents and a whole other range of shops. There is also a local vineyard nearby with award winning wine: Cantina Sant'Andrea. Wine can be bought by the bottle or you can fill up your demijohn from the huge wooden barrels at very reasonable prices!
Local Produce: The farming area is well known for its local produce. Buffalo mozzarella is made locally in neaby farms and can be purchased freshly made. Eucalyptus and orange blossom honey are also sold locally from nearby farms. Freshly caught fish is sold in local towns as is a range of locally grown vegetables and fruit. Wine can be bought from local vineyards at very reasonable prices.
