This lovely little house has all of the character of the quintessential Italian farmhouse but with all the amenities we expect in our modern world. And in such a beautiful setting!
The layout and furnishings were charming yet elegant, and the house was equipped with everything we needed to enjoy our stay.
The house is currently just right for two couples. But as we understand from our host, Gianni, it will soon be able to accommodate additional travelers. This will only multiply the number of guests who could stay together and enjoy this rustic and engaging setting by the sea.
Our host, Gianni, was more than helpful and accommodating as we planned our trip to the island of Ischia. Since we were visiting from the U.S., it was especially helpful that he spoke English and could help out with transportation, scooter rental (this is the way to really see the island of Ischia) and advice on the local sights.
This might not be a location for folks with young children, but we completely enjoyed the house as we hiked and watched visitors sunning on the rocks below. Especially memorable about staying at Villa Punto Caruso were the stunning sunsets and the men who gathered daily to play Bacchic ball up near the road to the house.
You will need a scooter or car to go to and from the house. But all the better-- so you can bring home some (fabulous) local wine, cook dinner with fresh produce from the markets in Forio, and simply sit back and enjoy your luck in finding this charming little house on Ischia.
