Just spent three days in Formia. I spent every summer there as child as my dad originates from the town but now that I can go as an adult it is brilliant to see another side of this town.
In short -
It is up a steep hill so either hire a car or pay the 10 euro taxi ride. It is killer walk in the heat.
Get up in time for the sunrise. The view from the bedroom windows or terrace is amazing. You can see the islands, across to Gaeta and overlook Formia.
Take time to sit and appreciate the atmosphere in the gardens , with a cool drink of course.
Lovely breakfast and quite intimate so feels very different than staying in the average tourist hotel.
Good toiletries in room from toothbrush and paste, to razor and shaving cream. I was impressed.
Wifi available free of charge.
Want a foreign wedding ? Perfect location and they cater accordingly.
Really helpful staff.
Room spotless every day.
Take comfy shoes for the walk .......I learnt my lesson.
Slippers in the room. Wow! I'm easy pleased but they were useful with sore hot feet.
Will def return.
My 83 year old dad described the hotel as Eden!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A magical gulf, a magnificent view, a fairy castle: where else but the Castello Miramare, a hotel-restaurant, the only one of its kind. From the heights of Formia, in a rich, green setting, it is a veritable oasis, charming and varied, with its old rustic lounge, reception room, romantic terraces and delightful gazebo set among fountains and flowers. The comfortable, cosy rooms are furnished Spanish style; among the ten rooms, there is one, on two levels really enjoys its particular location in the castle tower. The cusine is superb, ranging from the traditional flavours of time gone by to the sophisticated tastes of today. Tradition and comfort combine in perfect harmony at the Castello Miramare. ... more less
