“Fantastic place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

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 full city! The B&B is very nice and cozy. Our room was light and well-designed, and from the big window was the same fantastic view - the city and the sea (we asked for a room with best view)... The bed was comfortable, the bathroom equipment was new and clean, everything was well-thought. Special thanks to Cristiano, an owner. He is very kind, polite and caring - our family was really charmed! He gave us advice about all good restaurants of Gaeta, gave a card with special discount for one of them. When we leaved his B&B, he allowed us to leave our bags there until evening, and we had another fantastic day in Gaeta. Breakfast was also very nice - big choice of pastries, fruits, cornflakes, cakes. Cristiano made coffee for all guests for himself - and it was very tasty. He cared for everything! A very pleasant surprise was a computer for quests in living room and wi-fi - for free use! We will definitely return.

Room Tip: Take a number with best view - it's a breathtaking panorama of the city.

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, we had to leave before breakfast for our return flight and breakfast was arranged at the cafe in the village so we could get something before we left. Nothing was too much trouble. We had a most amazing time in and around Gaeta, the alleys and steps were part of the charm, the beaches special and the history fascinating. We hope to return to this part of Italy and this " just beautiful "bed an breakfast.

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 and quiet. The brakfast in the morning was good with coffe, cafelathe. Very good.
We like to come back to B&B iI Vecchio e iI Mare.

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 e il Mare is definitely the perfect place to stay in Gaeta. A clean spacious location right in the historical centre of Gaeta with a French window overlooking the sea and the marvellous panorama of this unforgettable south Italian town. The breakfast in the morning was abundant and of a great variety. The closeness of charming bars and restaurants is unbeatable. THANK YOU EVER SO MUCH, CRISTIANO AND SCILLA, I WILL DEFINITELY RETURN!!

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.
