The house is part of one of the historic villas built in the 1960s on the dunes and Sabaudia beach, between Torre Paola and the Hotel Le Dune. The villa is accessed through an automatic gate and a private drive surrounded by the Mediterranean scrub.
The apartment is located in the central part of the villa and enjoys a spectacular 180 degree view of the dunes and the sea of Sabaudia. It is accessed by a staircase belonging exclusively to the house which leads to a beautiful semicircular covered terrace overlooking the sea, furnished with sofa, armchairs and dining table for eating outside.

On the ground floor a large living room, with a large front of semicircular windows, overlooks the sea; it is furnished with sofas, armchairs and dining table. Adjacent to the lounge is the fully equipped kitchen area. On the ground floor there is also a double bedroom with attached bathroom. Two separate stairs, one on the right and the other on the left of the living room, lead to two separate bedrooms on the upper floor, the first double and the second with two single beds, each with its own bathroom.
The bedrooms are small but comfortable. All the bedroom windows face the interior of the lounge.
The private descent to the sea of the villa, in the middle of the dunes, leads to the beach in a few meters. Inside the gate there is a fresh water shower and a fountain to cool off after the sea and sun baths. The apartment has sun beds and umbrellas provided.
Regular disinfestations are carried out every year by bloodsucking insects, so there are few mosquitoes in the dune.

This location offers you to experience the sea as you've never experienced it! A holiday immersed in the sea, in the sun and in the scents of the Mediterranean scrub.
Those who meet the Lungomare di Sabaudia cannot help but fall in love with it!
Set along a large white beach that ends at the foot of Mount Circeo, lapped by a blue sea with transparent and calm waters, refreshed by a constant scented sea breeze, the Lungomare di Sabaudia steals the heart with its surprising beauty.
The golden color of the beach, which gently rises to form soft dunes, contrasts with the dark green of the Mediterranean scrub forest. With the sun warming the sand, the scrub releases scents of myrtle, heather and mortella. Everything is preserved in Sabaudia! The natural park protects the return of migratory birds that fly over the dune, towards the brackish lakes that line the promenade. Golden greenhouse fish meet in flocks in the shallow waters near the shoreline. Heather and juniper grow spontaneously in damp windows.
On long walks on the beach towards Mount Circeo, silhouetted in the distance, it is exciting to get to the foot of Torre Paola, the ancient Saracen tower. At times when the beach returns empty, in the early hours of the morning or at the end of the day, the few who can stay to enjoy the spectacle of the setting sun know they are privileged. The mist that falls at dusk slowly darkens the profile of Ponza and Palmarola on the horizon, sirens that emerge in the waves and invite you to take off.
On this outbreak of Lungomare Pontino, first, in the early 50s of the last century, Count Volpi di Misurata built a villa identical to that owned in Venice, overlooking the Grand Canal. The memories of the epic parties given on the beach still remain in the memory of that time, with illustrious guests who came from the sea, given the inadequacy of the road that led to Sabaudia, and who found tables decorated with pottery and precious dishes to welcome them on the beach. served by impeccable waiters in white! And here, coeval and all nearby, the villas of the Counts of Campello, of the Princes Pacelli, of the Marquises of San Severino, of the Ghella, of Moravia, of Anita Ekberg and many others arose in the same period. The young people of that time could truly say that they had tasted the Dolce Vita, which from Rome, via via Pontina, transhumed to Sabaudia in strictly exclusive meetings.
Villa Lidia was built in the early 60s by the grandfather and father of the current owners. Recognizable and iconic for its semicircular shape with large white colonnades, it was built with the most modern technologies of the time and is still very fresh and breezy in summer, never wet in winter. The architects built it by the sea, challenging, along with a few other mad visionaries, the dictates of the time, that he wanted these prestigious mansions built in the hinterland, away from sea winds and winter storms.
Villa Lidia is surrounded by a hectare of dense and wild Mediterranean scrub that alternates with large sandy spaces, where it is not uncommon, in less frequented periods, to see wild rabbits dance under a full moon. Here the sea is the master, resonating in the windows, both in periods of calm with the rhythmic lapping of the waves, and during storms, roaring violently under the lash of the mistral or the libeccio.
A fence encloses and protects the whole property. The main gate on the beach opens onto the golden sand that slopes down into the crystal clear water.
