Well positioned property in beautiful grounds
The flat is lovely, and very well equipped, including a washing machine, and fridge freezer. The shared pool and the garden are both well maintained and very large.
Situated in Forio, it is close to the town, but in a quiet street with beautiful sea views.
Our host was always available by phone /text if we needed any help.
On the down side there is no wifi, and the apartment would benefit from a printed help guide to using the equipment and where things are situated within the flat.
Overall lovely and would happily return.
Wonderful apartment in perfect location
What a wonderful vacation did we have in Marilena's apartment! The apartment is nicely decorated and has a great view over the garden and the pool and the sea. We were surprised by the high quality of the kitchen utensils, there was everything we needed to cook at home and in very good condition. The apartment is located in the 1st floor of a condominium of about 50 apartments. We lived in the apartment for the last three weeks of June and for the first week we were just about the only people in the building apart from the very nice housekeeper Franco.
The building is called Parco Santa Caterina and is located at the end of the street, some 300 meters up from the main road which runs by the sea. It seems the apartments are mainly vacation apartments, perhaps owned mainly by people living in Naples region. During the weekends there was more people around. We were the only non-Italian family around, but everyone was very friendly to us.
The location is about the best you can get. Just 5 minutes down the road and you are on the best beach of Ischia. It is a large free beach with perfect sand and it is shallow and warm for kids. There are also wave breakers so there is hardly any waves. We loved that there are crystal white sandy dunes under the sea when you swim out from the wave breakers.
It is also very convenient to walk to the city, just 10-15 minutes along the seaside main road. For grocery shopping it was very easy to go through the back gate where you can get to Monterone township. There is a Dok supermarket and (a better) Deco in just 300-400 meters. Some uphill is to be expected, but nothing bad.
In the apartment the double bed is wide, but the mattress is not very thick so be prepared for a hard bed. Naturally air conditioning would also be nice, but there are fans.
Wifi coverage is a real problem. There is no wifi in the apartment and we brought a WiTourist wifi box with us. It works with Wind operator. Unfortunately the coverage for Wind (and Vodafone and Tim) was very poor in the apartment. For some reason our wifi box seemed to work up to around 9 pm, but after that we were not able to get any 3G or 4G. Most likely the cell towers facing the apartment did get crowded. The coverage was good when we moved the box out to the garden so that the building does not block it, but then we were not able to get Wifi signal strong enough into the apartment.
Nevertheless, we will definitely come back! Thank you so much Marilena!
Vacanze in relax
Ho soggiornato con la mia famiglia 9 giorni al Parco S. Caterina con un ottimo rapporto qualità prezzo, ho trovato al mio arrivo una casa comoda e accogliente in una posizione strategica anche senza mezzi propri di trasporto rimane molto comoda per soggiorni brevi o lunghi, è a due passi dalla spiaggia della Chiaia una delle più belle e sabbiose, sono rimasta molto contenta del tempo trascorso in questo Residence con una bellissima terrazza con vista su piscina e mare e ho trovato una padrona di casa sempre disponibile a ogni mia esigenza in qualunque orario.
Ringrazio per l'incantevole soggiorno consigliandovi questo incantevole parco per le vostre vacanze.
Grazie mille a te Natasha e alla tua famiglia di aver scelto il mio appartamento.
Spero di riavervi al più presto miei ospiti.
Nice apartment, fantastic location, beautiful pool
Stayed in this nice apartment for two weeks mid June. Two children 7, 10 years and two adults and it suited perfectly. All you need is available in addition to wifi that you can use only on the arrival area. The pool area is wonderful and wonderfully managed by Franco. Walking distance to the beach and Forio makes this place unique and definitely something I will recommend. Will definitely return hopefully soon. One tip is that you can go out to town even from the back of the residential building as well. Closer to shopping for groceries. Ask Franco if you can not find this secret door. Marilena responded quickly to all our questions and was a perfect host. Thank you for everything!
Many thanks Mathias ,
It was a pleasure to have you and your lovely family as my guests.
I truly hope to see you again next year.
appartamento mediterraneo in posizione eccellente
Abbiamo trascorso una piacevolissima vacanza , il parco dove è situata la casa è davvero fantastico per i bambini che hanno giocato sul prato e nella piscina divertendosi un mondo. Il contesto è signorile, molto tranquillo e silenzioso, vicinissimo alla spiaggia e al centro di Forio.
L'appartamento è comodo e ben equipaggiato. La proprietaria è sempre disponibile per qualsiasi richiesta.
Lo consiglio vivamente.
Mooie locatie, erg rustig en op slechts enkele minuten lopen van het centrum.
Deze locatie, voorzien van een mooi zwembad is rustig gelegen. Het appartement is compleet ingericht. Op slechts enkele minuten lopen van het centrum.
Met openbaar vervoer zijn alle bezienswaardigheden op het eiland goed te bereiken.
The park where the apartment is located at the end of a closed road, so little traffic, surrounded by green gardens and Foriani vineyards, in a quiet area although close to the lively area of the beach and the marina.
The park features a large swimming pool with two levels deep, surrounded by a manicured lawn, tall palm trees and flowering plants, with sun beds and umbrellas for the guests and in a wonderful panoramic position. The La Chiaia beach is among the largest of the island, has both beaches equipped that a large free section, the marina allows both the mooring to boaters that the arrival of the fast boats to Naples, the lively and charming Old Town , full of churches and palaces building and is reachable on foot with a pleasant stroll along the promenade. The area is full of great restaurants, wine bars, bars and pubs. The bus stop is located right at the entrance of the road and you go direct buses in all municipalities of the island and the famous spa gardens Poseidon; rental scooters and cars is not far, as well as very near have a gym and diving center. Nearby there is also an excellent -Rosticceria bakery that sells prepared foods.
What do you want more, there are all the elements necessary for a relaxing holiday but at the same time varied and interesting, full of sea, sun and good food and excellent wine ischitano !!!!!!
