Everything in my previous review stands but HOLY COW the new terrace is AMAZING! The view alone is worth it! You can't find any better! Gaeta is most defiantly a hidden gem, plan a couple days here, you won't be sorry! This view+Christiano's cappuccino=heaven on earth!

This B&B is maybe not the fanciest place i ever slept but the atmosphere is definately the best! We stayed in the room with stunning view on the Gaeta! You can see whole old town from your room! And Cristiano is just perfect host. Not only he waited for our late arrival, he also gave us lot of information about... More

So let's get the bad out of the way. It's very difficult to find. Very difficult driving to it, a crazy drive downward into Gaeta, and at first you'll wonder what you got yourself in to due to its location if you're a traditional American traveler. But then your host will open the front windows and you'll be blown away.... More

First: remember that accommodations in Gaeta are pretty expensive. But this b&b is really really good. Perfectily clean. Our window was just above a beautiful alley. Easy to reach. Very silent area (in May). Only issue: in our room our smartphones have no network. But once you are with your beloved, who cares about checking your emails?

Views of the sea were magnificent as were photos taken from balcony. The owner, Christiano was most welcoming. Location is in walking distance to many restaurants. Christiano also had a wonderful recommendation for fresh local seafood cuisine. Clean & comfortable rooms without frills.

This is one of best and most autentic places I've ever been in my life! Before all, this B&B is situated on the hill, in the medieval quarter of Gaeta, in a little quiet street. It's safe and silent there, a street is full of flowers. View from breakfast room was really breathtaking - you can see a panorama of... More

We had a wounderful stay at the B&B. Nice room with beautiful view over the old town and the see. Cristiano is a nice and helpful host. The B&B was clean and the room was not so cold. It was possibel to drive and park the car close to the B&B, we had a small car.

Had a lovely, relaxing 5 days here. Cristeano deserves all good reviews. Helpful, thoughtful and the perfect host. The room was spotless, clean towels as needed and clean sheets during our stay. The view was a breathtaking moment when you opened the shutters. We arrived before lunch after a very early start from Liverpool, the room was ready for us,... More

Very nice place to stay. B&B was situated in the old part of town, just under the fortress. A lot of small alley up to the hotell. The B&B was very clean and has a perfect view to the see. The host Cristiano was very kind and helpful. The B&B has only 3 room so there is a very silent... More
