Make a holiday villa in Ponza your home away from home

Ponza’s charms lie in its scenic beauty. The largest of the Pontine Islands off the coast of central Italy, it has an attractive shoreline with some dramatic cliff faces, a lovely harbour, good beaches and a number of historic landmarks.  Ponza is also a big tourist draw for its grottos and archaeological sites. The island is believed by some to have been named after the Roman governor of Judea, Pontius Pilate.

HomeAway has a number of fantastic Ponza holiday villas to ensure a relaxing and comfortable stay on the island.  Many are backed by lush countryside and located close to the waterfront, enjoying gorgeous sea views.  Holiday apartments in Ponza also benefit from good locations, however, ensuring guests are equally close to the sea and historic centre.  Comfort is important, and so many of our Ponza holiday rentals feature coffeemakers, fridges, washing machines and televisions as standard.  Among the other Pontine Islands are Ventotene, where tourists can also secure a holiday rental.

Things to do

-Swimming: Swimming is a popular Ponza pastime, either on the sandy beaches or from secluded bays.  Some people seek out rocky ledges to sunbathe on and they dive into the water off the rocks.  The most popular beach is Chiaia di Luna which can be reached on foot from the port.

-Historic sites: There are numerous historic sites and ancient ruins to visit.  Along the shore is Grotte di Pilato, several caves where Romans dug fishpools to search for food.  Other Roman sites of interest are a necropolis and the remains of an ancient port at Santa Maria.

-Food and drink: As many visitors discover when they stay in Ponza holiday villas, the island has no shortage of lovely piazzas lined with cafés and restaurants. Some of the eateries specialize in regional fish cuisine based on shrimp and squid.  The food is also influenced by Ponza’s proximity to Rome and Naples.

-Family activities: From the port, families can hire boats to go on exploratory trips of the island’s coastline, or alternatively, enjoy a trip to the private botanical garden Giardino Botanico Ponziano and the museum at Cala Frontone beach. Housing curiosities covering the island’s history, they include statues, photographs, paintings, books, letters, furniture and more.

Weather in Ponza

The island has a Mediterranean climate with dry, hot summers and moderate winters, making a stay in holiday apartments in Ponza possible all through the year. The mean temperature is 16.3°C. The average low during the winter months is 10°C.  October and November are Ponza’s wettest months.

Travel to Ponza

To get to Ponza holiday villas tourists can take a train or car from Rome to Formia.  From there it’s a two-hour ferry crossing to the island.  Alternatively, there are ferries from Anzio and Naples.  A bus service runs the length of Ponza, but guests can also take water taxis to various parts of the island.

Short way to lovely beach. We rented a boat one day, and had a great day at sea. Beautiful scenery. Frequent buses to Porto Ponza. Can highly recommend Cala Feola.
