Description from owner

Description

Located on the second top floor (no lift) of a residential building, the penthouse overlooks the entire bay. Its furnished sheltered terrace going all around the apt. enables you to eat out peacefully while enjoying a breath-taking view of Gaeta harbour that changes in colours from dawn to sunset. The apt is spacious, full of light and conveniently furnished.

The building is located on a hill and yet at walking distance from the city XIX century centre of Gaeta "Elena" (5 minutes) and from the main beach "Serapo" (20 minutes). If you don't feel like walking, a city round bus stopping in front of the gate, at 25 to the hour, will connect you to both places and also to the Medieval citadel where it has its terminal.

You can jog to Mount Orlando natural reserve, take daily boat trips to Ulysses coastline, explore beautiful beaches like Ariana, Arenauta and San Vito.

At Elena and the Medieval citadel you will find many "pizzerie", restaurants, art exhibitions

At Elena and the Medieval citadel you will find many "pizzerie", restaurants, art exhibitions and music festivals. You will try the local traditional pie called "tiella" with its different fillings, from small octopus to onions or vegetables. Twice a year a "Tiella feast" makes Via Indipendenza and the Municipal square a colourful stage of all local varieties of tiella and you can not only buy and eat them but also watch demonstrations on how to prepare it. Special mention goes to the Mediterranean blue fish daily sold at the fish market stalls. Sardines, anchovies, makarel but also orate and spigole are all fished in the surrounding sea. Accompany them with fruit and vegetables sold in abundance and at low prices by the local people at Via Indipendenza and don't miss the famous Gaeta olives and "bufala" mozzarella!

Location description from owner

The Lazio region

The coast between Terracina (Circeo) and Formia is linked to Ulysses, Eneas and the Romans. The latter appreciated its mild climate and beauty and had their summer mansions built there. In 1957 impressive statues from emperor Tiberius' mansion were discovered in a sea grotto half way between Sperlonga and Gaeta and later exhibited at the National Archeological Museum along the via Flacca. Gaeta (20,700 inhabitants) whose name originates from Aenea's nurse Caieta is located on the promontory of Mount Orlando (now Regional Park) and has always held a strategic position which made it a fortress inhabited by Normans, French, Spanish dominations. You will see medieval walls, doors and a castle. Gaeta catholic inheritance is still present in many outstanding churches and paintings but also in religious events (on the second Sunday of August a big procession worships the Madonna of Porto Salvo: the statue is carried on a fishing boat to bless the gulf of Gaeta) and local pilgrimages (to the Sanctuary of the Split Mountain). Different dominations, especially the Spanish and the French left an interesting cooking inheritage, which is especially evident in pastries and cakes (f.e. in Gaeta you can find the best baba cakes (originally coming from French Brillat Savarin recipes as well as the Sicilian pastry called cannoli alla siciliana originally from Spanish cooking tradition). Visit the many pasticceria present on the territory. My favourite one is Stenta where only by stepping in you are taken into a paradisiac world of flavours and elegance! .

Gaeta

On foot you can visit the medieval town, the fish market, the port, Serapo beach, Mount Orlando with the impressive funeral tomb of Roman general Lucio Munazio Planco (1 century B.C.), the Sanctuary of the Split Mountain. On wednesday morning don't miss the local open-air market .There are food festivals (in May and October), concerts (mainly in July ), night life and music (in August). By car , at less than an hour drive, you can visit Montecassino Abbey, the Sanctuary of Madonna della Civita, Minturno and its Roman amphitheatre, the fishermen village of Sperlonga, the National Archeological Museum and many other villages of interest (Terracina, Fondi, Campo di Mele, Maranola, Itri). If you are interested in swimming or just sunbathing, you have only the difficulty of choice: apart from Serapo beach at walking distance, you can go to Ariana beach, Arenauta beach, San Vito beach or even farther towards Sperlonga beaches (12 kms away). If you want to make a one-day tour, visit either Naples or Pompei, or one of the islands (Capri, Ischia, Ponza, Ventotene). The ferry for Ponza and Ventotene leaves just 5 kms away from the house, at the Formia port.
If you are interested in deep sea diving, join the official diving team and discover the beauty of the blue sea reserve in front of the Split Mountain. You can also do free climbing, or just cycling... Children will enjoy the Acqua Park in Itri and later you will taste Itri's famous olive oil products (egg-plants, paprikas and others)
