This is a historic tower midway from Rome and Naples on the seaside. The ideal please to mix the Mediterranean beach relax and food, with some of the best cities in the world to visit: Rome, Naples and Caserta at only 1-hour train.

Gaeta Gulf Castle was built in the 1400 century, completely restructured in 1994 and completely refitted in 2014 with fine solution and furniture.

Gaeta Gulf Castle sits at the edge of the picturesque hill in the town center of the historic part of Minturno, close to the church San Pietro (The church was built by Pope Leo III around the ninth century) with its ancient Roman ruins, medieval city, ancient churches and shops, bars, trattoria, restaurants, pizzerias and homemade ice cream shops.

Gaeta Gulf Castle is one of the very few private residences with this much adjoining space for intimate holidays, family reunions, celebrations and group vacations, and is the ideal place to spend a serene, peaceful holiday, within day-trip distance of Rome or Naples, but with none of the noise and chaos of the cities.

The towns nearby to the villa, Minturno, Gaeta, Formia and Sperlonga, offer wonderful restaurants that serve seafood caught daily in the bay.

About Beatrice Tedeschi-Schmidt

Hi everyone! My name is Bea,.

I am here to propose you my beloved properties in Italy. I am a simple person passionate of art, hospitality, architecture, Italian culture and Italy, travel-enjoying places like a local with locals. During the years, I tried with my team in ItalyHomeXP & Mediterranea Property Owners to develop my dream:

***** Raise up a portfolio of properties with genuine Italian Character, prepared with all the comforts needed for international travelers for tourism of business to let them find their Italian home, including services that can help to let them experience the best of Italy, like a local, with locals (from fixed housekeeping and cooking at home to airport transfers, rent a car, guided visits etc *****

Me and my team test every house we have or we manage to ascertain our quality standards. We carefully listen to the voice of our guests to learn everyday how to improve our services and maintain fair prices and conditions.

We a registered company that pays taxes in Italy… so no fake property owners and bad surprises at arrival… booking online a temporary home from individuals every day more dangerous… no temporary workers to collect keys or clean… we have only permanent motivated staff that that take care of the properties and our precious guest with passion.

We are proud to became Premium Partners for the Housing Service of many Companies and Institutions to arrange the temporary homes for their expat or travelling employees in Italy like NATO, FAO, WFP, Procter & Gamble, Altran, BCG, General Motors – Chevrolet, Henkel, Credem, Pfizer, Protiviti, Banca Sella, Pontifical North American College of Rome, Pontifical Bishops Annual Congress and many more.


Beatrice Tedeschi-Schmidt purchased this villa in 2014

Why Beatrice Tedeschi-Schmidt chose Minturno

Renting a villa under the Tuscan sun has become big business in Italy’s rolling north country. So big that the lovely family in the villa next door is as likely to be from London, Munich or Tokyo as to have lived in the Umbrian hills for generations. For those who like their Italy a bit more Italian, the southern half of the boot holds many treasures, and few of them have been discovered, far less overrun by tourists.

One such marvel is Minturno, Formia, Gaeta and Sperlonga, small, ancient towns on its own Gulf in the Mediterranean, sitting conveniently near the train line half-way between Rome and Naples. It is about 45 minutes by express train to either city, making it a perfect base for day trips. What it also offers are enough ancient ruins, medieval alleyways and old churches to keep any visitor enthralled for weeks, without so much as a glance at the tourist-clogged cities to the north and south. You will deal with me and or my team that with passion supports me to provide you the best service!

What makes this villa unique

The structure is very particular and full of history and charm. Everything is brand new and a carefully prepared to grant the best comfort.

The position is perfect to visit Rome and Naples, Caserta, the Amalfi coast and much more just in 1 hour and relax in a peaceful and luxury place…

The position is also locally strategic… The centre are very close… Hundreds of interesting sites to explore visit and taste in just 20 minutes…

A quiet and tranquil setting in the heart of this old town with amazing views..superb beaches..

  • 5 of 5

We loved it..the property was just what we wanted..quite but still central. .not too far from the beach..the shops..and with fantastic views. It had everything we required was comfortable. My only comment would be to have more comfortable seating in the lounge area...not that you're in.much with such superb weather and the pool terrace to relax on. We will definitely be rebook to come back again next year..thank you home and away..your service has been fantastic..with replies to emails and questions within an hour. Definitely recommend the property and home and away.

ItalyHomeXP changed the villa description after we paid the rental then tried to cover up the error

  • 1 of 5

ItalyHomeXP sold us a four bedroom villa, but this one only has three. When we found this on our arrival I complained to their Formica office. They denied this was an error, even when I sent them the current advert on OwnersDirect that showed four bedrooms in the summary panel. They pointed out that the detailed description said 'three bedrooms': for what it is worth I am certain the detail description said four when we booked. When I complained again ItalyHomeXP then blatantly changed the advert on OwnersDirect to remove the summary panel!! I believe they changed the description after we booked and failed to tell us. They then tried to cover up their error and put the blame on us. DO NOT rent from these people!!

It was such a shame as this ruined our holiday. ItalyHomeXP cannot be trusted. They do not own their errors. They do not care if their customers are disappointed. I have rented houses and villas from OwnersDirect for many years, and until now never had such a problem. A simple apology for the error (such things happen) and a small compensation would have put things right, but they simply denied the problem, then lied to me.

The villa owners were very friendly and did their best to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. The villa was actually really nice with excellent views (though you cannot really see the sea). The pool and terraces are also very nice. Minturno is quite beautiful and historically interesting. The locals are friendly and the few bars and restaurants welcoming and good value. Few people speak any english, but then we expected that.

There are some flaws which could easily be fixed. The lounge area has a fairly uncomfortable sofa bed and dining chairs, so is not a great space for relaxing. Unfortunately this is also the only area where the (fast) wifi works!! As mentioned, there are only three bedrooms, and only one has aircon. There is one shower inside one of the bedrooms. The bathroom in the basement has only a hand shower. There are no nets on the windows, so if you want ventilation then be prepared for biting insects to enter your rooms.

Do be warned, the villa is on four levels and has many, many internal stairs so is not suitable for anybody with mobility problems, or small children. You cannot park next to the villa, only in the public car park (in the free zone) some distance down steps from the villa. And you will need a car as the main stores and beaches are 4 to 10 minutes drive away.
