Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Italy - Casa Chiocciola

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, ocean view

Ideally located, very peaceful, All mod cons, Tastefully decorated, Large terrace, In the heart of Santa Maria marina village.

Ponza is a truly delightful island in the Tyrrhenian Sea shaped like a crescent moon. Its glistening blue coastline is varied and dramatic with several rocky coves and sandy beaches as well as numerous grottos, caves and craggy cliffs. The island has clear and limpid waters and is ideal for sunbathing, swimming, snorkelling and scuba diving. Life here revolves around the sea so the best way to really appreciate Ponza is to circumnavigate it by boat. Inland the scenery is striking featuring mountains and vine-clad hills that boast sweeping views back down to the coast. There is one main road that snakes a panoramic path from the Port up through to the north of the island and is regularly served by the island’s minibuses. There are two main inhabited areas: Ponza Town in the south and Le Forna in the north with a few white houses and North African-style dome-roofed dammusi scattered about elsewhere.

The island is not over-built and doesn’t suffer from ugly high rise buildings; instead the traditional architecture of Ponza is pretty pastel-painted cubes with flat roofs topped by shallow domes. Visitors need to be relatively fit, as the best places to swim are often reached down steep paths or long flights of steps built into the hillside - although you can hire a boat or take a water taxi instead. Despite its lively atmosphere, beautiful landscape and rich and rugged shoreline, Ponza is only just starting to be discovered as a holiday destination and does not have many foreign holidaymakers. However this lovely island inspires its regular visitors with a fierce sense of loyalty combined with a desire to keep its many charms a secret.

Ottimo soggiorno

  • 4 of 5

La casa ha superato le mie aspettative, spaziosa, ben attrezzata e pulita .. Unica pecca la presenza di un solo ventilatore, in quanto la casa è particolarmente calda! Inoltre avrei gradito una maggiore flessibilità con le date

Owner's Response: La ringrazio per la sua recensione! Riguardo la presenza di un solo ventilatore, in estati "normali" non usiamo nemmeno quello, in quanto la casa è fresca e gode grazie alla sua posizione, della brezza del mare. Per quanto concerne la maggiore flessibilità, non capisco bene a cosa si riferisca... La settimana da Lei prenotata era l'unica ancora disponibile e quindi non vi erano possibilità di allungare il soggiorno. Magari la prossima volta!

Casa curata e attrezzata di tutto il necessario. Ubicazione ideale per poter usufruire della locazione di barche, necessarie per poter godere al massimo dell'isola. Panorama e terrazzo eccezionale, adatto per godersi il rietro dalla spiaggia in relax

"Maison ancien rénovée et...

  • 4 of 5

"Maison ancien rénovée et divisée en 2 duplex mitoyen. Conforme à la discription, propre, agréable. Un seul clé disponible pour 5 personnes. Un tarif de location plutôt élevé pour les finitions: 1 siege longue pour 5 personnes. Barbecue minuscule/rouillé.

Robinetterie cuisine qui laisse à désirer. Système électrique suspect :fil électrique apparent dans la salle de bain, et impossible de mettre la main dans le tambour de la machine à laver le linge sans se prendre du courant électrique! Siege wc mal adapté.Sommiers de lit double un peu bricolés.

Il suffirait de peu pour améliorer cette location qui a un beau potentiel. Maison bien placée, avec belle vue sur les habitations et la mer vers la droite mais du fait de sa position en haut de la colline, le son est amplifié: aboiements de chiens et passages des voitures pourraient empêcher les plus sensibles de dormir, sans évoquer les voisins dans l’autre partie de la maison.

Quelques surprises concernant les plages à proximité (location mois août): plages totalement envahies par des parkings à bâteaux ou fermée pour cause de chute de rochers. Il a été difficile d’accèder aux autres plages, besoin de transport ou voiture quand on a la chance de pouvoir se garer!

Ponza est quand même très beau, et vaut le détour par cette location."

Rome is the best airport and starting point for the islands, although Naples is also an option. Ferries and hydrofoils run to Ponza from Anzio (42km), which is an hour's train journey from Rome. Other ferries travel to Ponza and Ventotene from Terracina and Formia, both on the Latina coastline between Rome and Naples. In the summer there is also a hydrofoil service from the island of Ischia to Ponza. Services are drastically reduced outside the main tourist season (which runs roughly May-September). Ventotene can be reached from Formia with Vetor (55mins).

Restaurants: A CASA DI ASSUNTA, ANTICO MURENARIO, LA BUSSOLA, LA PALMA, SILVIA.

For travelling around the shorelines, or between the islands, boats are the obvious option. If you haven't arrived in your own yacht, small boats can be hired cheaply on Ponza and Ventotene. You can also take trips to the smaller islands, with time usually set aside for swimming. On Ponza, the largest of the islands, a bus service connects the settlements of Ponza Porto and Le Forna. The principal beach, Chiaia di Luna, is a few minutes on foot from the port.
