Feriehus Villa Silvie
Italien, Lazio, Sperlonga
We (four persons: two adults and two teens) have been there, in the first half of October 2013. Traveling to Sperlonga was a recommendation by friends. It is a small city with a nice historic center. Besides the city are two beautiful and clean beaches. There are lots of photos in the net. The water is clear and warm, even in October. In October the weather can be very differently. There were some day with perfect beach weather and days with impressively thunderstorm and wind. Thunderstorm viewing from the terrace is much more interesting than watching TV.
The house: When we saw the photos and read the description we asked ourselves: Where is the problem? We thought: There must be a problem! (At booking time we found no testimonials or other recommendations in the net.) But we found out: There is no problem!
The house is located outside the historic center, but it is very close to it. The city, the shops and the beaches can be reached by food in less than 10 minutes. The house is part of a row home at the end of a dead end way. The neighborhood is quiet, clean and green - very pleasant. The direct neighbor has a huge but very kind dog, which guards the backside of the house the whole night long. Unlike in downtown (you have to pay there everywhere) parking is no problem: There is a garage in the house (downstairs), big enough for two cars. In the first floor is the living room, a small bathroom with shower and with a washing machine, a well equipped kitchen, a terrace at the backside and a terrace with sea view at the front side. In the living room is a TV-set, but there are only Italian speaking programs. In the upper floor are two bedrooms, a room for children and a bathroom with bathtub, a balcony at the backside and a balcony with sea view at the front side.
Everything was very clean and we have not missed anything. The contact to the renter was very pleasant. Communication took place in English and preferably via SMS. They were very flexible in dealing with our travel times. We can recommend Villa Silvia with no restrictions.
Very nice, clean and cozy house. Location is perfect! 5 minutes to the beach, 5 minutes to the Old City, restaurants, shops etc. The beach is perfect for families with children. The service was excellent and the attention given by Letizia outstanding. I would recommend this house for everyone and hope to stay in Villa Silvie again.
