In One Word: Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

WOW. This place truly is a little piece of heaven and hidden gem. The pictures don't do it justice. Not only was the villa amazing and very spacious (it could easily sleep 7), but there are also no other houses in sight! It seems like you have the whole island to yourself. The sunsets were amazing and the best I've ever seen, right outside our door at the villa. And the owner, Gio, was so nice and accommodating! He reserved a car for us so we would have transportation when we arrived, he met us a the ferry port (we took the ferry from Naples to Ischia) and personally drove us to the villa, AND when we arrived at the villa the fridge and kitchen were stocked with all the essentials (eggs, milk, olive oil, even a few bottles of wine!). Plus Gio gave us many tips about what to do on the island, where to visit, his favorite restaurants, etc. And if we had any questions throughout our stay, we were able to call him directly and he was there to help. I can't say enough great things about this place: the owner, the views, the overall experience was just perfect! We will definitely be returning to Villa Gio sometime soon! Thank you again Gio for all of your help and sharing your piece of heaven with us!

Un véritable paradis / a true paradise

  • 5 of 5

La villa de Gio est un véritable paradis : la maison est sympa, lumineuse, fonctionnelle et très agréable à vivre. La vue est absolument sublime. Que ce soit du séjour, des chambres, de la cuisine, on est plongés perpétuellement dans un rêve éveillé : la mer, la mer, la mer, les plantes, etc !

Lorsqu'on est fatigués de regarder la mer, la meilleure chose à faire est d'aller se baigner dans les rochers au pied de la villa !

La villa est à deux pas des magnifiques jardins de la Mortella, qui valent vraiment la visite, et du parc thermal Negombo, très sympa, notamment sa plage dans la baie de San Montana. Forio est à côté, pour tous les aspects pratiques, y compris les arrivées et départs en aliscafo.

Enfin dans "Villa Gio" il y a Gio ! Très sympathique, Gio est un véritable hôte qui vous accueille chez lui. Il vous accueille à l'arrivée du bateau, réserve la location de voiture et vous conseille sur les lieux, les visites et les restaurants à ne pas manquer. Le service est vraiment parfait.

Amateurs d'isolement, de nature, de mer et de culture, Ischia est pour vous et la villa Gio votre lieu de séjour idéal !

Villa Gio is a true paradise : the house is very comfortable, practical and full of light. The view is really amazing : you can see the sea into all rooms of the house. Every window conduct you to a real dream !

Swimming in the rocks, just on foot of the villa is also an amazing experience !

Very close to the house : Mortella's garden are fantatisc, the thermal parc "Negombo" is very close too. You need just 10 minutes to go to Forio by car, to buy what you need et to catch the "aliscafo".

Gio is a perfect host : he welcomes you at the boat, takes care of a car reservation, advises you on good places, visits and restaurants. You are really welcome here !

Amazing property and stunning views!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I planned our entire honeymoon around this Villa. We were researching various countries and locations in the world, when I stumbled upon the listing. I was smitten with the photos and immediately started researching Ischia and how to get myself there. I've rented many properties from this site, and I always try and keep my expectations somewhat low since pictures and descriptions don't always tell the truth. But I just had a good feeling about this one. So we took a chance, and booked it for 7 nights.

WOW!!!! Just wow!!! We were more than happy with everything. We opted to add transportation to our package, and Gio arranged for someone to pick us up in Naples, take us to the ferry, get us off the ferry, and drive us to the Villa. It was definitely a good decision. We also rented 2 scooters which he helped arrange.

Now back to the property and villa....The views of the sea were mesmerizing. We often sat for hours on end outside just taking it all in. There are endless outdoor spaces to relax in. We enjoyed the easy access to the sea and swam frequently. We also loved the hottub! It's definitely a fantastic way to end the night while looking up at the beautiful night sky. The villa is very nice inside, comfortable beds, a great kitchen to cook meals in, wifi, and television (although we didn't even turn it on). I cannot say enough about our amazing trip. Gio was a fantastic host and obviously takes loving care of his property.

Our Stay at Villa Gio (punto caruso) was fantastic. The friendly, kind and thoughtful property owner met us at the ferry with a rental car and took us through the house explaining "how to" everything. He recommended great local restaurants, where to food shop, get spa treatments and more. He even called a few days in to check on how we were doing and answer any questions. The villa is serene, private, clean and very comfortable. The plants, views, sunsets and sounds of the crashing ocean helped us to recover from the stress of our busy lives. We stayed for 1 week and could have stayed for much longer ;) We hope to return soon!

Un vrai petit paradis

  • 5 of 5

Très bel endroit avec une vue magnifique sur la méditerrannée. Le jardin et ses multiples terrasses est splendide. La maison est bien conçue, les chambres sont spacieuses, équipées de placards, les salles de bains très propres. La décoration est faite avec soin et goût. L'accès à Forio, le village le plus proche se fait en 10 mn. Un endroit magique à découvrir.
