We booked a double room for 7 nights in May 2015. Criinstiano was very helpful and came to meet us in our car in the main square, and guided us up to the B&B (better than our satnav). We were lucky enough to be able to use one of the B&B's allocated parking spaces in the small road near the... More

The terrace and the view are just as promised. Typical italian breakfast with good coffee. The host is friendly. The only thing that's nuisance is all the stairs you have to walk to get to the b&b if you don't own a car.

Not knowing the town of Gaeta and Gianluca's & Cristiano's place we were more then positively suprised. Both guys are very approachable, helpful and nice to talk to. We stayed 4 nights and enjoyed every single minute in their place: the breakfast as well the a wine at night both on this nice terrasse. Now we will intend to go... More

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
