Please do take time to read our GUEST REVIEWS here on AirBnB. .................................
Also, here are more Reviews by some of our other guests: .........................
" Paul and Louise were excellent and attentive hosts. The Location was perfect for us: quiet, beautiful views but not too far from town (Itri) and beach (Sperlonga), while the children adored the various resident dogs and loved the pool to cool off. Apartment was well equipped and spacious - we thoroughly enjoyed our stay ! " Rory - August 2016 ...........................
"This was our first time in Italy and what an introduction. Paul and Louise had made us feel welcome before we had arrived with great directions and advice. The Farmhouse is in a lovely location far enough from other houses and the lovely town of Itri but not too far so as to feel remote. The countryside and beaches are stunning and the surrounding towns and villages offer a range of opportunities to sample the local cuisine. Try a little Italian even if you aren't too sure ..... the locals love it and we made some great acquaintances. Local supermarkets and markets have everything necessary to cook in the well equipped kitchen and we enjoyed lovely meals with a glass or two of red wine, in the evening watching the sun set over the hills.
Other highlights were the pool, being able to park in the shade of the olive grove and of course the dogs. Max has to be the most lovely huggable dog on the planet. Overall a lovely place to spend a relaxing holiday with family post A levels and after a challenging year. Will definitely be returning. " Pat, UK. July 2016. TA ...........................
"Paul and Louise made us feel welcome before we even arrived. Helpful info and directions, as well as some basic provisions, made it easy to feel at home. They took an entire day to drive us to the mountain village where my family emigrated from and assisted in helping get documents I needed. They introduced us to others in the Itri community which
made us feel less like tourists. The Farmhouse was a wonderful home base. Clean, well appointed, and comfortable. Louise is an encyclopedia of information and Paul is the master of directions. Will return again and again. Thank you Paul and Louise." Lissa, USA ...........................
" Paul & Louise were gracious and accommodating hosts. When we arrived from Rome we had not eaten, and they sent over some food. That first evening (as we hadn't gotten to town yet for groceries) they took us with them to eat at a wonderful local eatery. The apartment was clean, nicely furnished & situated in a peaceful olive grove -a welcome respite for us US city dwellers! The view was gorgeous from our balcony where we watched the sun set every night. Their dog Max was an early riser (like me) & spent each morning on the balcony with me laying in the sun while I read & ate breakfast, after he "knocked" on the gate to come in. Throughout our stay both Paul & Louise were friendly & helpful & Paul took the time to get us to Sperlonga (wonderful beach nearby), into the town of Itri & when our plans to see Pompeii were derailed they took us sightseeing in Gaeta.
No need to travel to the pricey Amalfi Coast. The South Lazio region is just as if not more beautiful & less crowded & expensive. We are already planning our return trip for hopefully within the next year. And we will stay with Paul & Louise again. " June 2015, Mollie, USA. TA ...........................
" Tre Cancelle is a lovely place lost in the mountains in the middle of an olive field. The apartments are clean & you find anything you need in them : either to cook or to wash or to swim in the very convenient & also very clean swimming-pool. The location is just perfect to visit Rome & Naples by train or car. The surroundings are lovely too because you're between sea & mountains. But I'd say that the best of it all surely is to get the chance to meet Louise & Paul, the owners who are some of the most lovely & helpful people I've ever met in my life. It is really worth to get there just even to meet them both ! Hopefully I'll be back soon !!! Lydia (and the rest of the family !) "

"My family & I stayed here for a fortnight in July 2014. It turned out to be the perfect place for us & our children aged 12, 9 and 7 to stay. Right from the beginning Paul & Louise made us feel so welcome. As we were arriving late they got some shopping supplies in for us. The apartment was really comfortable, clean & well equipped. There was no air-conditioning but the flat stayed nice and cool. The view from the terrace of the olive grove & the surrounding mountains was really beautiful, especially at sunset. The stars in the night sky were amazing, also the fire flies.
The children were so happy to spend lots of time in the pool, while we were able to watch them from the balcony & we could just chill & relax with a book & a glass of wine. Some days we did all go out to visit some of the sandy beaches, which were only a short drive away. We were well impressed. Itri was lovely too, we would often go for a stroll around the town in the evening and tried out all the ice-cream flavours.
We chose to stay at Tre Cancelle because we wanted to visit Rome, Naples & Pompeii. We found it easy & convenient to go on day trips to these places. The train tickets were surprisingly cheap. Paul kindly dropped us off & picked us up from the train station. We also visited Montecassino Abbey by car which was magnificent. Well worth a visit. We visited many of the neighbouring towns and villages & especially enjoyed Sperlonga, Gaeta & Campodimele. Louise has written an amazing guide book with photos of the area which we found really interesting & helpful. Indeed, Paul & Louise were always available to help us if we had any queries & went out of their way to make our stay very special one. The kids haven't stopped talking about it. We really do hope to come back soon."
