For those who like their Italy a bit more Italian, the southern half of the boot holds many treasures, and few of them have been discovered, far less overrun by tourists.
Our place in Terracina is perfectly located as touring base to visit the real Italy.
Slightly more than 100 Kilometres from Rome and 120 Km from Naples, Terracina lies on about fifteen Km of coastline, along the wide gulf marked off by the Circeo and Gaeta promontories. By taking a short walk in the old town you will discover characteristic shops and establishments, including small wineries, with history everywhere around you. Piazza del Municipio also offers a view of the two symbols of Terracina, the incredible sea and the Temple of Jupiter Anxur. On especially clear days you can see the jewels of Campania, the islands of Ischia and Capri. Pompeii and the Vesuvio volcano are pretty close too (150km).Terracina is full of fine restaurants and is really good for shopping. Very distinctive are the colourful fishermen's port-canal and two basins for pleasure-craft, and the arm of the port where the ships depart for Ponza (in the summer) and for Ventotene. It is really a particular experience visiting the upper historic city centre of Terracina; it is like travelling through the thousands events which marked the history from ancient times to our days. Every stone, building, road reminds events and famous people of the past. Those who enjoy the countryside as well as the sea need only venture a few miles into the interior to reach many interesting places. Terracina is definitely a must for everyone who loves Italy and its beauties.

We are Federico and Maria (both 28) and this is our newly restored holiday home in Terracina. We have a business on it and as it seems to be a very popular location abroad, we decided to start to exchange it in order to experience a new kind of holiday. We have a sense of adventure, seeking to blend into local cultures wherever we go. Between 2006 and 2011 we have done 20 exchanges in: USA (Staten Island, Brooklyn, Chelsea, Hell’s Kitchen and Upper east side in New York City + Los Angeles, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Miami, Orlando, Seattle and Honolulu) SWEDEN (Stockholm), CANADA (Toronto, Montréal, Quèbec city, Vancouver) DENMARK (Copenhagen) UK (London) and IRELAND (Dublin). We would be happy to provide references from people with whom we have done house swaps. They will confirm the care with which you can expect us to treat your home.
For 2012 we are open to offers, but our particular interest is for: Shanghai, Beijing, Macao, Hong Kong ( China), Cancun, Tulum, Playa del Carmen (Mexico), New York City , Boston, Chicago, Hawaii, (Usa), Prague ( Czech Republic), Amsterdam ( Netherlands), Cote Azur (France) or Alps . Terracina could be described a perfect mixture of beautiful beach, crystal sea water, archaeology, history, good restaurants, cheap shopping and food and central located village. We would be proud to share it with you.
