About the property

An ancient monastery of the XIII century is now my home. Built near the sea, it has a 180° view from the Aragonese Castle to Punta Molino, through the Vesuvius, the Islands of Procida and Vivara and the Italian coast. The apartment has thick walls and vaulted ceilings, and a balcony on strong arches. The room is wide and peaceful, overlooking the sea. My house is located in the ancient village of Ischia Ponte and it is not far from the harbour and the commercial streets, as well as from the hills and the inner parts of the island, where you can enjoy beautiful walks. The island of Ischia has a long and rich history – it was the first Greek settlement in the western Mediterranean sea –, is well known for its thermal waters and it is also called “the green island” for the rich vegetation covering it. It is part of the sea reserve “Area marina protetta Regno di Nettuno” and it offers the possibility of holidays specific for any age: diving and trekking, sand and rocks, spa and Italian cuisine, festivals and discos… it is difficult to be disappointed!

Best Bed and Breakfast east of the Mississippi

  • 5 of 5

Gina Menegazzi is one of the most sensitive and vivacious hosts we have had the pleasure to meet. And since she seems to know everyone in Ischia Ponte, she is also an invaluable resource of information about the locale, both present and past. Her Bed and Breakfast is quite nurturing, and the breakfasts on her balcony facing Il Castillo Aragon had us beginning the day in a relaxing mood. That your suite is the only one at the Bed and Breakfast only pampers you more. Her establishment is located off a quiet piazzetta with a wonderful wine bar right out her door. Should we ever return to Italy, Gina and Ischia Ponte would definitely be our destination.

Never had a better B&B in Italy

  • 5 of 5

The five senses B&B is perfectly positioned in the Old Town of Ponte overlooking the water and a quiet cul-de-sac. I had a spacious and beautifully furnished room including tea&coffee making facility. It was mesmerising to watch from the large window the activities ofthe fishermen in their boats, and by night see the dots of their red and green lights scattered on the sea. All this and the varied and lovingly prepared breakfasts certainly tickled my senses, thank you, Gina, for making my 12 days with you so wonderful. Needless to mention that everything was clean and well maintained although Homeaway would like to have this confirmed so here I go. If you want to familiarise yourself a bit more with the island Gina is the person to talk to. Many a feature you won't find in any travel info online or in books will be recommended by her, beyond the obvious Ischia has plenty of hidden treasures. I hope to go again in the not too far future, and hopefully will be able to stay again at the Five Senses. Thank you Gina for all your kindness and care, I will always remember it.

Lieu magnifique , vue imprenable, charmante hôtesse

  • 4 of 5

Notre hôte Gina est une femme soucieuse du bien être de ces locataires, femme charmante dévoué très active. Nous aurions aimer partager un peu plus de temps avec elle car c'est une femme très intéressante communicative qui connaît énormément sa région et bien plus.

Le logement est idéal pour un couple.

Toutefois la salle de bain un peu restreinte. Mais la situation et la vue magnifique est imprenable !

Que dire de ce séjour si ...

  • 5 of 5

Que dire de ce séjour si c'est l.étape que nous avons préféré de notre périple sur la côte amalfitaine et ses îles. L île d ischia est riche et splendide. Le b&b est situé à 15min des bus qui vs permettent de faire tout le tour, la vue de la chambre est à coupe le souffle, on s'en remet toujours pas. Gina est adorable, discrète, serviable et aime recevoir et partager. Les petits déjeuners sur la terrasse ensoleillée, avec ses bonnes confitures maison, nous ont conquis. Alors salle de bain est en commun mais rien de bien gênant. N hésitez pas à réserver vraiment vous serez pas déçu, vos 5 sens seront bien éveillés.
