House | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6
The apartment is in a medieval court of 15th century totally restored and modernized. Stone walls form the perimeter of these apartment and the elegance of the building is heightened by the view over the plain spreading from the Circeo promontory in the south to the Pontine islands offshore, and from the Ninfa Gardens up to the hills of Rome in the north.
This modern yet ancient apartment consists of stone, iron, wood and brick terraced on different levels, full of light and greenery, thanks to the lemon and orange trees peculiar to Sermoneta.
Located in the historical centre of the medieval town, the apartment is spacious and elegant, has two refined and comfortable bedrooms each with modern bathrooms with toilet, bidet and shower, a living room/dining room with tv and dvd, a fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher and a large terrace offers spectacular views over the plain, out to the sea. There are table and chairs for outdoor dining, a highlight of the laid-back Italian life-style.
Thanks to the Mediterranean climate, always sunny, this is a wonderful opportunity to have a real family holiday, long walks through the Caetani's castle and the Ninfa Gardens or through the Abbey of Valvisciolo, or just relaxing in a restaurant with delicious local wine.
Alternatively you could spend the day at the famous beaches of Sabaudia, Sperlonga and San Felice Circeo (30 minutes by car) or have a beautiful day in Rome (30 minutes by train) or in one wineyard of the region and then enjoy the evening back in the stone court.
Finally (suggested for children) we are just 40 km drive from the amusement park “The Magic Rainbow” in Valmontone.
We are pleased to remember that “Le camere pinte” is mentioned in “Bell'Italia” the first Italian holiday magazine.

In May 2011 I rented the house to a British couple that spent all the week sunbathing on the large terrace of the court. They enjoied the Mediterranean climate, the sun, the panoramic view...in the evening they liked going for a walk around the medieval streets (Italian "vicoli") of Sermoneta...through the Castle, the ancient churches of 1600, the green of the trees...then they decided to have dinner in one of the little and characteristic restaurants of the centre...during the week they went to Rome by train and by car to Villa Adriana in Tivoli...they visited the Ninfa Gardens and the Abbeys of Valvisciolo and Fossanova. One day, I suggested them to visit the beaches and have a pic nic there...they were excited... and I was happy too!

The Lazio region
Hot and sunny, the medieval hill of Sermoneta is situated in the south of Lazio region, a place famous for wine, olive oil but above all for the proximity to the eternal city of Rome and the famous beaches of Sabaudia.
The train station of Latina is only ten minutes by car from Sermoneta, and by train journey to Rome only half an hour, daily sight-seeing visits to Rome are an attractive proposition.
Many guests prefer driving to Rome through the ancient Appia way and visiting Villa Adriana in Tivoli.
Sermoneta is also only 20 minutes from the Mediterranean sea and 30 minutes from the beautiful Sabaudia beach or the natural park of San Felice Circeo.
You will also want to visit Sperlonga, Terracina, Gaeta and even the Island of Ponza, Ventotene e Palmarola.
In addition you can go to Naples and Pompei in two hours by train.
For mountains and hills lovers, Sermoneta offers the chance to discover the peculiar paths through the Lepino Mountain range giving opportunity to visit the other medieval towns of the area like Bassiano, Cori and Norma.
The interest in the village has increased since it was featured on the magazine “Bell’Italia” for holiday home programme.
Sermoneta thanks for its medieval characterization has been the set for many movies like the Italian “Non ci resta che piangere” starring Roberto Benigni and Massimo Troisi or the American “Silk” from the book by Alessandro Baricco.
Also the film director Franco Zeffirelli (rewarded for 14 Oscar Nominations) fell in love with Sermoneta calling it "The paris of Italy".
The village is a great place for a romantic get away or for a family holiday. It is famous for the Caetani’s Castle and its huge fortress, for the ancient Abbey of Valvisciolo, for the churches of San Michele and Santa Maria, for the Ninfa Gardens (one of the best European garden with a lot of plants and flowers), for the Pantanello area (for birdwatching), for the proximity to the Mediterranean hot and sunny beaches.
The medieval village of Sermoneta offers also very reasonably priced restaurants where you can enjoy typical local specialties…everything that you have dreamed of in an Italian vacation is here.
