About The Owner

This house have gone through many changes and it is frequently refurbished by the owner, that is an architect, always trying to maintain its cosy features.

It is an exclusive and uncommon house, and the owner and his wife are very happy to share with guests this special environment they have created throughout the years.

We are happy to let our properties because it is a good opportunity to meet interesting people.

Even though we live in the city we are lucky to have a garden where we can grow flowers and plants, we also have some lemon and clementine trees and we make marmalade e liquor out of the fruits.

The Owner purchased this house in 2000

Why The Owner chose Terracina

We deeply love this area because it has its roots in the Southern culture, but it also keeps up with the modern life being close to big cities such as Rome and Naples, Terracina is on the boundary between Latio and Campania.

The renovation lasted for two years and we tried to maintain as much as possible the original characteristics of the house. I even went to the Statal Archive in Latina where i found out that the house's foundations are Romans and the upper part is from Middleage as the whole historical centre in Terracina.

What makes this house unique

Here is where we like to organise dinners and parties with our friends due to the warm atmosphere. There are enjoyable and relaxing colors inside the house as well as the nature's ones outside, especially at sunset and sunrise.

Cute & Cozy

  • 4 of 5

Clean property. Comfortable beds. Was great for a couple of nights for 2 couples, but would be better for a long stay for a family as there is only one bathroom which is located in the master bedroom. Balcony is great. Easy walking to downtown. Very nice to be in the historical area. Marina, the owner was very good to deal with and a very gracious host. The bottle of Prosecco in the fridge on arrival was a nice touch. No regrets.

Great place in the middle of ancient city

  • 4 of 5

The location is perfect to have a great experience with day to day life in south Italy and make day trips to napoli pompei and amalfi coast we were 10 days in this great house. We loved the fireplace the sunterrace and the inhouse bbq to make great meals when we were not having dinner in the neigbhourhood. The house has a romantic style whch we love in combination with old style of the house. Terracina is surrounded with great beaches and friendly people to help you around.

Very cosy and beautifully decorated villa with a wonderful roof terrace. The beach was great and within walking distance of the villa. There are many good restuarants nearby and after eating you can spend the rest of the evening sitting outside one of the great cafes in the historic town square.
