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

The hotel is situated in the old part of the centre. It has nice view on the sea, especially early in the morning. The hotel is perfectly suitable for leasure actitivy, but not much for business people as breakfast is served from 9 am.

I will always hold the warmest memories of Gaeta, Il Vecchio e il Mare and Cristiano. I was driven relatively late in Gaeta and was met in a beautiful piazza by Cristiano - a very smiling and really helpful ragazzo italiano. Cristiano took me to his bed and breakfast through winding streets that looked magical in the dark. Il Vecchio... More

This place was the perfect fit for us: wonderful host, not too many rooms so very quiet and not bustling, beautiful view, clean, great surroundings in the old part of Gaeta. We rented bikes in the new part of Gaeta and it was easy to get around.
