Looking out of the living room windows you have the impression of being on a ship. Casa Nettuno is located on a cliff overlooking the sea and therefore offers magnificent views over the Mediterranean. The house from the fifties was completely renovated in 2002. It was built by the Italian architect Michele Busiri-Vici, who is known for his Mediterranean style and who has created many buildings on the Costa Smeralda, including the famous Stella Maris Church in Porto Cervo. His architecture shows influences from North Africa, Spain and Greece: rounded shapes, arcade arches, cupolas, whitewashed walls as well as green or blue shutters and pergolas. At Casa Nettuno you can experience this cheerful architecture in the middle of the stunning landscape of Monte Circeo National Park.
