Overview

Ischia Cottage Rental Photos and Description

This charming cottage overlooking the beautiful bay of Cartaromana and the Aragonese castle, boasts a breathtaking view of the Tyrrhenian coast, the Vesuvius and the other islands of the gulf of Naples.

The house is part of a small and quiet private property of four villas, ideally located between sea and sky and surrounded by Mediterranean flowers and plants with brilliant colours.

On the spacious front terrace, with sundeck chairs and a table, there are 2 independent front doors, one leading to the living room and one to the main bedroom.

This one-level cottage is divided in the living-room, with a double sofa bed and a self contained kitchen, two bedrooms (one double and one twin bedded) and two shower bathrooms.

The house is totally and tastefully restored with features and colours typical of this sunny land.

The position, the landscape, the refined furniture make the house a first class holiday cottage.

You could be tempted of staying at home all the time, just sunbathing in the terrace, enjoying the astonishing view! But if you fancy going out sightseeing, the island of Ischia is waiting for you to show all its beauty: the cosy fishermen villages, the sandy beaches, the famous thermal parks.

Besides you can easily reach Procida, Capri and Naples from Ischia Porto by ferry or hydrofoil.

Come to stay with us, we are waiting for you!

About Massimo Pepe

Neapolitan, in my sixties, married, two children, Information Technology consultant, I'm currently living between Naples and Ischia.

My favorite hobbies are: books, music, photography, cooking, sailing and trekking.

Massimo Pepe purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Massimo Pepe chose Ischia

My wife and I were looking for a 'buen retiro' not far from Naples.

When we saw for the first time this property, we immediately fell in love with it and decided to buy it.

Now we are proud to share our house with people that are lovers of beauty.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Massimo and Anna were very warm welcoming hosts, gracious and friendly on our arrival. Massimo created an extremely helpful guidebook to the apartment's facilities,local attractions,restaurants/bars and the island as a whole.



The apartment and terrace of this listing are simply wonderful. The view is without doubt one for the most breath taking we have encountered and to do so each day was fantastic and added so much to our overall holiday experience. The interior of the apartment exceeded expectations on all levels. We loved every second of our time in this beautiful 5 star apartment and hope to be lucky enough to return in the future!

Under the Castle walls

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Ischia Paradise Corner was wonderful. Massimo is charming and helpful, speaks excellent English. His home is lovely, beautifully located with a large comfortable flower decked patio that has a stunning view of the 15th Century Aragonese Castle, the Mediterranean, Mt Vesuvius, Naples and the Amalfi coast. The house is clean and well equipped, with a very modern bathroom and eat in kitchen with dishwasher, washing machine and all conveniences. Bedrooms are comfortable and nicely furnished.. You can walk into Ischia Ponte, there is a shortcut path down the hill, lots of nice restaurants and cafes, small local shops and a small supermarket. Renting a car on Ischia is definitely a challenge, you must be comfortable with stick shift, driving a very small car and terrifying motorcycles bearing down on you on very narrow twisty roads. However there is a bus service that goes round the island regularly and fortunately Massimo's house is close to the first stop so you will get a seat. Don't miss the Giardino Eden down the road, a complex of swimming pools, a bar and expensive fish restaurant on the rocks under the Castle. Visit the Negumbo Gardens for a fun afternoon of thermal pools and water therapy and a very nice beach. Enjoy La Mortella, the magnificent cliffside gardens created by Sir William Walton the English composer and his wife. Take a private boat ride over to Sant Angelo for lunch. Ischia has been discovered by the Germans for years, but is just now getting on the radar of Americans, less touristy and more wild and natural than Capri.

An hidden gem within the Gulf of Naples!

  • 5 of 5

We have holidayed throughout Italy and can say with certainty that Paradise Corner, Ischia is a charming place to spend a quiet and stress-free holiday!

The host, Massimo, was delightful and informative, the view was just stunning of the Castle, Sorrento, Capri and of course Mt. Visuvius! every morning to wake up and see the whole of the Bay of Naples stretching out before you was just breath taking....,

Many happy hours spent on the terrace drinking in the views and of course the local vino!

THANK YOU ITALY again!

Appartement calme avec vue exceptionnelle sur le golfe de Naples

  • 5 of 5

Vue magnifique sur le Château aragonais et toute la baie de Naples (Vésuve, Côte, Capri,...). L'appartement est très bien aménagé et propre. Les équipements de la cuisine et des salles de bain sont en très bon état. Il comprend une belle terrasse dans un environnement arboré et calme, du moins hors saison comme dans notre cas.L'accès à la résidence est possible par bus avec un arrêt situé en face.

Le propriétaire est extrêmement aimable et nous a accueillis en nous donnant toutes les informations utiles, une documentation consistante sur l'île, les bateaux, les bus et les sites à visiter et des produits locaux pour dégustation.

En résumé, un séjour très agréable et sans problème.

Nous recommandons cette location.

Wonderful visit to Ischia

  • 5 of 5

We came to Ischia to share the island with family visiting from the U.S. over Thanksgiving. We had a great time and the view was nothing short of amazing. We did trip the power a couple different times which required a quick walk to the front of the parco to flip the breaker and would have loved to have a newer TV that we could have hooked our Apple TV to in order to watch the Macy's Day Parade and American Football on the holiday but we didn't spend a great deal of time harping on those small things, instead exploring the island, eating, shopping and enjoying each other's company.

We would definitely stay at Massimo & Anna's Ischia Paradise again in the future.

Beyond Expectations

  • 5 of 5

Ischia was an island that we knew little about. We have friends that prepped us with information from their travels to Rome, Florence, the Amalfi Coast, and other parts of Italy, but none had been to (and most hadn't heard of) Ischia. We did our research, found this apartment, and were so glad that we did!

The view was breathtaking, and never got old. We found ourselves taking pictures every time we had a glass of wine or a meal on the patio, to try and capture the memory. The owners are gracious, organized, and very helpful. We found their suggestions for what to do, and where to eat, to be spot-on. The apartment is well located - close enough to walk places, far enough away to be quiet and peaceful. The amenities were perfect - simply a great place to stay.

We have rented several homes through VRBO and HomeAway - this one was the hands-down the best! Fred and Karie B.

Ischia, called also “the green island” for its rich Mediterranean vegetation, is a volcanic island in the Tyrrhenian Sea, worldwide famous for its beauty: the cosy fishermen villages, the sandy beaches, the wonderful healthy thermal parks.

It lies at the northern end of the Gulf of Naples, about 30 kilometres (19 miles) from the city of Naples. It is the largest of the Phlegrean Islands. Roughly trapezoidal, it measures approximately 10 km (6 miles) east to west and 7 km (4 miles) north to south and has about 34 km (21 miles) of coastline and a surface area of 46.3 square kilometres (17.9 sq mi). It is almost entirely mountainous, the highest peak being Mount Epomeo at 788 metres (2,585 feet). The island has a population of over 60,000 people.

Ischia is the name of the main municipality of the island. The other municipalities of the island are Barano d'Ischia, Casamicciola Terme, Forio, Lacco Ameno and Serrara Fontana.

The main industry is tourism, mainly based on thermal spas that cater tourists from all countries of the world, eager to enjoy the fruits of the Ischia natural volcanic activity, its hot springs, and its volcanic mud.
