Description from the owner
Overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, on a protected mountainside
in one of Italy’s most dramatic national parks, 90 km south of Rome.
A nature-lover’s paradise and ideal for a beach holiday.
The Villa sleeps up to seven, and can be rented monthly, biweekly, or weekly, June–October.

Additional Location Information
The Villa, with its stunning views and private tranquility, looks out from a protected mountainside within a national park. Caves of ancient man are minutes' walk away. The small, nearby resort town of San Felice Circeo is named for the goddess Circe from Homer's "Odyssey"; local wisdom relates that the mountain was her island. The town’s Centro Storico (Historic Center) boasts a medieval piazza, intimate restaurants and cafés, and stylish shops.
Since the 1950s San Felice Circeo has been known to Italians but kept secret from most foreigners. In summer, well-to-do Romans rent villas and frequent the diverse beaches. A km from the Villa is one of Italy’s luxury hotels, the Punta Rossa, with a fine restaurant, chic bar, cove beach, seaside pool, and health spa (all open to non-guests).
Beside the swimming options in Circeo itself, just around the headland stretch the 20-km sands of Sabaudia Beach, one of the finest in Europe. Among its dunes, in the 1960s and 1970s, novelist Alberto Moravia, director Pier Paolo Pasolini, and actress Anita Ekberg were neighbors; Signora Fendi is still tweaking her villa. (Anna Magnani kept a villa and is buried in Circeo
