About the Owner
My name is Bruna, I have been studying foreign languages and literature at the university in Rome. I am now over 50 and work in the airline industry. I take care of passengers and monitor marketing on account of a German airline. I live in Rome. I am married and have two sons. Both of them are fond of paintings. My daughter has studied at the Art Academy in Rome and my son is trying to enroll in a school of comics in Turin.
I love reading, watching films and jogging even if the time I can spend on these activities is not enough as I am very much involved in my job.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Dear Bruna, I hope you got my text replying to yours and letting you know when we were leaving. We did leave the key as you asked. Thank you for your lovely house. We are already planning our return. The location of the house was wonderful and there is so much we still want to do. Hopefully we will come back in early July next year after my daughters exams finish.
We are now back in the UK! We just wanted to say a big thank you for letting us rent your lovely house last week. We had a great time in Italy; luckily the weather improved and we had two sunny days on the beach at Sperlonga. We managed a train trip to Rome as well as a very long day visiting Vesuvius and Pompei.

Thank you for our stay in your lovely house. Our car, whilst not available at the property, was close by and was free to park. It was great to be in the centre of town, especially in the evening when everyone is out and about. Very good restaurants/pizza takeaways and icecream parlours close by. Plenty of shops and supermarkets also. It was fantastic to enjoy breakfast on the roof terrace every day. Rome was very easy by train (1.15 hours) and only 7 euros each. Vesuvius (very bumpy rides in the jeeps up the volcano - don't go if you're pregnant!) and Pompeii are 2 hours away by car. We would highly recommend this property. It was clean and tidy, with lots of steps, which was ok for us but may not suit the less able. The fans in each bedroom were very much used. Thank you for providing them. Fantastic to have the use of the washing machine. We'd love to come again.
What a great property this is, set in the narrow streets of the old Jewish quarter. The house is well equipped and has the bonus of a roof terrace, a great place to have breakfast and meals in the evening. Lots of good shops locally for food supplies. In the evening the 'passegiata' is a must to join especially at the weekends where it seems the entire population takes to the north-south street - the famous Via Appia that heads to Rome - and parade, drink and eat ice cream at the many cafe's and bars. Lots of history in Fondi with its ancient polygonal walls and even more at Terracina not too far away. Beaches are superb along this coastline and easily accessible. Fondi is not a tourist town, so for those who want a real Italian experience with all its customs this is the place for you.
From the Owner
“I have decided to buy this house in Fondi because I found really interesting and fascinating the old town. I like very much the country atmosphere you can taste walking around in these ancient streets where old traditions still remain alive. Moreover the clean see with its wonderful beaches and landscapes are just around the corner. As I am still working I have decided to rent the house for some periods of the year but I still have the possibility to enjoy it during my holidays together with my husband, my daughter and my son and their friends. The house is quite big so there is enough room for all and I can assure that dinner on the terrace in summer season is really beautiful”
