THE MEDITERRANEAN RETREAT ON THE ISLAND OF PONZA

Ponza House Rental Photos and Description

House for 2 people overlooking the sea, on the cliff of Punta Fieno in Ponza

This retreat is not for everyone, as not all are made for this house. The house can be reached by boat and then going up between broom and wild garlic plants or by walking between ledges and stone walls overlooking the sea.

There are no luxuries here, because the luxury does not communicate with the soul. Electricity is provided by solar panels, not to pollute, for lack of network, for love of nature. The fridge works with gas and water (rain water) should be used sparingly as on a sailboat, rather as a “stone raft”. There is no telephone, the great persecutor of modern times, sometimes with cloudy sky you could find signal for the cell phone. Here it is important to be reached from the world, but to reach the nature and merge with it. The food comes from the near vegetables gardens besides from the sea. These are the emotions that must prove who wants to love this place of beauty, intimacy and readings, portrayed from the weekly Magazine and reported by journalists and writers.

This is not a home. Nor is it a refuge.: Is not a boat but at almost. It is “A Jangada de Pedra ” in other words ”The Stone Raft”, quote from the famous novel by José Saramago. Above all, it is a boat, a refuge, a home at the same time. The place where the soul flies, the body disappears, the mind becomes diluted in the sea. This retreat is not for everyone, as not all are made for this house. Here reigns the ultimate silence and the ripping rasp of the peregrine falcon. Here reigns the Salmastro (brackish), the ancient wine, grape juice contaminated by the sea and its moods in the great marine quiet in spring or during the winter storms. The house can be reached by boat and then going up between broom and wild garlic plants or by walking between ledges and stone walls overlooking the sea. There are no luxuries here, because the luxury does not communicate with the soul, are the saramaghian shadows to dictate the paths of the thought and the literary sensibilities of who lives here, in returns and departures.

La Jangada is a chance not just a place: Electricity is provided by solar panels, not to pollute, for lack of network, for love of nature. The fridge works with gas and water (rain water) should be used sparingly as on a sailboat, rather as a “stone raft”. There is no telephone, the great persecutor of modern times, sometimes with cloudy sky you could find signal for the cell phone. Under the house on the cliff there is a canoe, some fish traps, mask and fins for snorkeling. Here it is important to be reached from the world, but to reach the nature and merge with it. The food comes from the near vegetables gardens besides from the sea. These are the emotions that must prove who wants to love this place of beauty, intimacy and readings, portrayed from the weekly Magazine and reported by journalists and travelling writers. Magazines such as Yacht & Sail, Country & House, the American edition of La Cucina Italiana, Bravacasa, Io donna, Houses & Country, Vagabond, ELLE Norge have published articles regarding the house.

Important: The house can be reached by sea - if the weather and sea conditions are good - or by land with a walk of 40 minutes from Ponza harbor through the vineyards of Punta del Fieno
