Strada Itri-Sperlonga, Km 4,600, Loc. S. Stefano 04020 Itri (Latina)
La Torre Rossa is an agriturismo that evokes the traditions of the land of the Aurunci; it is located in a 14th century building, formerly mill and Church of St. Stephen.
The agriturismo is nestled between the rolling hillsides and the sea of Sperlonga and aims to make the most of the distinctiveness of a territory packed with history and with natural products.
The goal of Torre Rossa hospitality is to allow its visitors to rediscover the emotions and knowledge of a culture of living on a human scale; the rooms (each with its own bathroom) are quiet and comfortable.
The rooms represent reclaimed traditions: the materials, the stone, the timber, the metal are all restored to a naturally basic function. The decor and antique furniture give the sense of a culture of country living from times gone by.
The farm uses organic and integrated farming techniques to product: Itrana extra-virgin olive oil, single-varietal from with a strong or mild fruity taste, depending on whether the olives are picked early (November) or late (April); fresh vegetables, fruit, walnuts.
Mediterranean shrubland and oak forest surround the agriturismo.
La Torre Rossa is located between the Regional Park of the Aurunci mountains and the Riviera di Ulisse along the coastline between Sperlonga and Gaeta. A sailing school means guests can practice this sport here.
On these hillsides, the famous wines Cecubo and Formiano, acclaimed by Orazio and Tito Livio were produced already back in the times of the Roman emperor, Tiberius and there is a great deal of testimony from the period, including the Minturnae archaeological site, with part of the ancient Via Appia, the forum, the theatre, and the villa of Tiberius in Sperlonga, with its national museum. Other evidence can be found in the surrounding towns of Formia,Gaeta, Fondi and Terracina.
The medieval part of Gaeta - testimony to a history full of events and famous people- is an extraordinary synthesis of the various economic eras that followed each other over time, with an eminent commercial and military role during the entire period of the reign of Naples through to the last episodes of history before Unification.

This was my first experience in Italy and I can''t thank Ernesto enough. The accommodations were wonderful and Ernesto's cooking is mouthwatering fabulous! We were lucky enough to have the place to ourselves. Ernesto was happy to tell us about his families place and the history of it the buildings. This is beautiful 13th century architecture. They make their own fabulous jams, which we took some home with us. Thank you Ernesto for making the start of our trip fabulous and for telling us about the palace in Caserta modeled after Versailles. I will definitely return and stay again!
In the land of the famous Fra Diavolo we found a place that has so much to tell: the Red Tower, a different holiday than usual, an ancient rural settlement, with paramilitary tower and adjoining church, dating back to thirteen hundred, that produced oil and wine (elements of the still peculiar today table the territory of Itri), today thanks to the restoration of the family sticks has become a tourist haunt of immense interest, which attracts both for its history and for its authentic flavors, masterfully praised by Mr. Mauro sticks, lovable person, with a ceremonial affabulante much as picturesque. The writer, who stayed there with his wife during the Easter holidays, had the opportunity to enjoy a cookery made of real and genuine taste for good palates, thanks to Franco vein, erudite cook and Ernesto, son of Mauro, kind person and the sense of hospitality in its DNA. Overnight stay in rooms located in the former vestiges with Arte Povera furniture gives the room a bucolic touch that combines perfectly with the feeling of a holiday in the open air with scents of ancient plants and here and there a silence broken only by the calls of birds . A real fairy tale that even our little dog liked. Great value for money. Highly recommended to all.

We are a Swiss family with three great kids and we spent a week in August (2015) to the Red Tower. The service was excellent, with great discretion and kindness. The property is renovated with taste and simplicity, the homemade food and very good, especially liqueurs ... It was beautiful, thank you!
