Our title says it all. If watching perfect sun sunsets, lazing about in a secluded and comfortable location is your ideal then this property is highly recommended. Gio was attentive and supportive, providing helpful recommendations for eating out, places to visit and also met us at the ferry (he also sorted out car hire). The nearest public beach is a 25 minute easy walk and Forio is easily accessible. The nearest supermarket is a 10 mins drive and only accessible by car. Access to the sea from the property is a 3-4 minute walk down a relatively steep and uneven rocky path. Protective warterproof footwear is essential whilst the water can get slightly choppy at times. We would definitely return.
We were 3 couples from California on our first Italy Adventure! We spent our last 3 nights at this AMAZING Villa on Ischia. It is as beautiful as the pictures. The owner, Gio was the icing on the cake. Upon our arrival, we hired a driver at the ferry, Gio met us so we could follow him to the villa. He showed us all around, poured us champagne and made us feel so welcome. He shared lots of good tips; restaurants, grocery shopping and best of all, Negomo - a thermal park with a beautiful beach. My husband and I were the first of our party to leave. Gio was kind enough to arrange transportation to the Naples airport that was efficient and quite reasonable. I had never even heard of Ischia prior to our trip. We will absolutely be back and stay much longer! This is indeed a 'Unique Retreat', an amazing property that is truly "A FIND".
We started by watching a video of this home on YouTube. The video was beautifully filmed and composed--so much so that it seemed too good to be true.
In fact, the video presents the villa exactly as it is: a wonderful space with countless patios and decks, amazing sea views, expansive views of the sea, and irresistible charm.
We were a group of six from the U.S.: a 60-year-old couple from Colorado plus our two 30-something kids and their significant others from California. We had been to Ischia before, Italy countless times...and my wife actually lived on the island for half a year when she was eight. So we were familiar with the ferry logistics from Naples, the narrow roads of the beautiful island, the beaches, and the half dozen main towns.
Again, the villa was great. The kitchen is fairly small but functioned well, the living room was comfortable and two of the three bedrooms were excellent. The third bedroom, upstairs, is on the landing, and doesn't offer the privacy of the other two and requires a walk into the upstairs bedroom to use the bathroom. But that wasn't much of a problem.
Gio, the owner, is an experienced hotel owner who is an excellent, warm host. He met us upon arrival at the ferry terminal and led us to the villa (which would have been difficult to find and access on our own--even with a map). The villa was stocked with fresh fruit and vegetables, crackers and Ischian white wine.
All the beds were comfortable. Everything worked well. Internet was a little spotty, but the villa is tucked among the cliffs. Access to the water was quick and easy and even in late October the water was plenty warm for swimming. No sand along the rocky shore line, and the beach is sometimes shared with locals who walk down from the road, but it's still appealing.
For me, the best part is the amazing setting and the drama of arriving. You unhook a gate, descend a narrow dirt path and arrive at a gate that is activated with a remote. Walk down a long, rock-wall lined path and suddenly the villa comes into view, along with the terraces and the sea. It was hard to believe that this was our place for a week.
It is remote, it is special...and it will become even better when Gio finishes the new infinity swimming pool on the top terrace. (It seemed nearly complete when we were there.)
If you are comfortable driving on narrow roads and want an adventure more than an absolute luxury resort experience, this is a great choice.
Ankommen, auspacken und relaxen.
Es war mondän, einsam und nicht zu toppen.
We just spent a week in this beautiful house with it's wonderful gardens, terasses, patios and breathtaking views.
The house is nicely decorated and completly blends in with it's natural surrounding. The house is clean and well maintained.
Peace and quiet, being one with nature, you can completely relax, be free and forget your busy normal life. It was like being on your own private island on Ischia. Forio is close by for shopping restaurants, bars etc.
Gio the owner is very friendly, discreet and gives you all the information and service you need.
In reality the property looks better then on the pictures, you simply cannot capture it's beauty with a camera.
Don't even hesitate to book this so you can enjoy the magnificant sunset every evening.
There is a saying: "living like god in France" well I think he moved to villa Gio on Ischia.
