Lovely, lovely, lovely. What more can I say? They picked us up, welcomed us with refreshments, offered us either of the two available rooms. Marinella and her family were just great. The views from the balcony are beautiful. Easily the most beautiful AirBnB place I stayed in Italy. Unfortunately for us, Ischia was a last minute adventure so we only had one night there, but in hindsight I wish it had been several. Ischia itself is very relaxing and less touristy than much of Italy that I saw. I hate to tell people this because the more people who know, the more touristy it will become, but I feel very fortunate to have this experience. This villa and island is a bit of paradise. The thermal pools are next door which are very convenient (if you enjoy the thermal pools). Unfortunately it rained the morning we were to have breakfast on the balcony, but it was still lovely. They set up a beautiful table inside. The breakfast here was by far the best I had in Italy. Right outside the villa is a bus stop. The buses aren't always reliable (at least the few times we tried to take it), but taxis are inexpensive if you are in a rush.
I hope to come back to Ischia, and if I am lucky enough to stay with Marinella.
