Some tips from our guests:
Very nice apartments of quite particular décor in an old style (at least we thought so) and all the things needed are there. Location is perfect right in the center of the old city and about 15 min walk from the sea. But be prepared to climb steep staircases though amazing view from the windows worth this.
This flat is probably the best place to stay in Terracina,The flat has an amazing view and a very nice (website hidden) Is on the top of old city. has a well equipped kitchen and a nice clean bathroom.
there is a good market nearby.
Stayed for seven nights, good location for all: amazing view, great historical look, not so far from the sea, markets and restaurants. A lot of interesting things in the apartments: books, magazines, paintings, furniture. Really a lot of space tastefully and comfortably equipped. Very good for family with 2 or 3 children - there are toys and many other. Maybe just one minus - too high to walk, but not for us))) Strongly recommend.
