Villa L'Olivo di Ischia enjoys a peaceful and panoramic position in the north-western side of the island of Ischia, privileged set of some of its most exclusive mansions. The historical centre of Forio, as well as San Francesco beach and the famous La Mortella Gardens, are within walking distance.
The Villa and the three additional cottages lie in a lush terraced park, characterized by the typical drywalls in local volcanic stone. The extraordinary microclimate favors not only an unusual variety of Mediterranean plants and flowers, but also the growth of many tropical species. The little olive grove around the Villa, the citrus fruit or...chard and the vegetable garden on the higher terraces of the park offer extra delicacies for its guests. In the park there are also a 150 sq. m. swimming pool with changing rooms, a barbecue with pizza oven and a covered parking.
THE VILLA - 6 bedrooms
At the centre of the estate, the Villa dominates the garden and the large pool, enjoying amazing views on the hills and the sea. Its two floors offer the ideal accommodation for a large family or a group of friends: 6 bedrooms with en-suite bathroom, 2 kitchens, spacious living rooms with fireplace, dining-room, intimate library for a total surface of 400 sm. Terraces and balconies offer private spaces for relax, while porches and flower filled courtyards are perfect places to enjoy mild evenings and al fresco dining. The living room and the two bigger bedrooms offer flat screen TV with satellite programs, Wi-Fi and iPod docking station. Interior decoration is inspired to the fabulous 60s, when on William Walton's trail many personalities of the cultural and business world discovered the charm of Ischia.
The former home of the peasant, who cared after the orchard, the olive grove and the vegetable garden, situated in the north-western corner of the property near one of the two entrances to the park, has been transformed in a beautiful Mediterranean house. On a single level it offers the ideal accommodation for a family or a small group of friends: 3 bedrooms with private bathrooms, the largest one with Jacuzzi, spacious kitchen, dining room, large living room with billiard-table corner and fireplace for a total surface of 170 sm. The living room and the bigger bedroom offer flat screen TV with satellite programs, Wi-Fi and iPod docking station. Furnishings and decorations by local artisans create an elegant and relaxed island atmosphere.
Orange Cottage - 2 bedrooms
When the citruses are blossoming, dining under the porch of the Citrus house can become an inebriant experience. On a single level it offers the ideal accommodation for a couple with children: 2 bedrooms with en-suite bathroom, spacious kitchen with dining corner, large living room for a total surface of 75 sm. Exterior porches face the orchard and the hills while interior spaces offer an elegant and relaxed island atmosphere. The living room and the bigger bedroom offer flat screen TV with satellite programs, Wi-Fi and iPod docking station.
THE RED HOUSE - 1 bedroom
It is probably the most charming accommodation at Villa L'Olivo di Ischia, because it is built on a crag at the highest point of the property, with a privileged view on Forio and mount Epomeo. Featuring a vague Moorish inspiration, it offers the ideal accommodation for a couple. The total surface of 40 sq. m. is divided on two levels: a living room with kitchen corner at the ground floor opening to a delightful corner of the gardens; an intimate bedroom with fireplace on the first floor connected by a winding staircase carved out of volcanic rock and a bathroom with shower inside a circular little tower. The living room offers flat screen TV with satellite programs, Wi-Fi and iPod docking station.Read more
