A Settebello Village is born on one of the three basins of the Fondi area (LT), called Bosco del Salto or Bosco del Principe, that, together with the Piana di Fondi and Selva, belonged to di Sangro’s family until 1920. In 1720, Oderico di Sangro, marquis of S. Lucido, bought the entire feud of Fondi by the Princess of Mansfed, already heiress in 1696 by the King of Naples.
Under Sangro’s domain the area of the island of Salto was generally marshy but salubrious towards sea. The need to drain and to transform the whole swamp into a viable area and above all into a profitable one, becomes in the early ‘20s and ‘30s, a fundamental step from a political point of view. However, channel building and water distribution is assigned to Pantanella brothers in Rome and to Ministry of Public Works. The latter, in fact, acquires and constitutes the Anonymous Company for the Drain of Fondi’s Swamps. Following legislation on landlordism, the land where Settebello Village will rise, is sold to Apollonj-Ghetti’s family.In year 1967 the Apollonj-Ghetti’s family, with the help of Mr. Giuseppe Imperlino, started camping site facilities, namely an outdoors accommodation service, a symbiosis of tourist and nature that will become an ideal place where to spend holidays between dunes and Mediterranean forest. Today camping’s size is progressively increased: a seafront of five hundred meters, in the shade of an ancient pine forest and of a widespread lush, eucalyptus, oak trees vegetation, directly overlooking the Ulysses Riviera. Located halfway between Rome and Naples, close to seaside resorts like Gaeta, Sperlonga, Terracina, S.Felice Circeo and Sabaudia, Settebello Village is one of the most popular tourist accommodations of the entire Latium coast, with its 500 large camping grounds, motorhomes and caravans, 100 comfortable and modern bungalows and 60 mobile homes, swimming pool and sports facilities, in a green background of vegetation and dunes, immersed in a welcoming environment with a lot of history at hand: from the Greek culture’s myths to the Etruscan and Roman art. Our goal is to give our guests a sense of belonging to nature and relaxation, while keeping intact the sites’ origins that made us leaders in the national tourist-receptive field.
