Villa "Due Favole". Beautiful villa with splendid open views to the mediterranean sea, situated in Ischia island, the only place in Europe where you can swim in the sea all year round, even in winter.
Sleeps up to 14.

Due Favole: Large, Charming, two storey villa situated at 130 mt. above sea level and is surrounded by tall deep green pine trees. It is very cheerful and extremely panoramic, with astounding open sea views to the Gulf of Naples and Amalfi Coast. The villa has two independent apartments furnished with comfortable modern furniture. The apartments can be rented singly, or together for larger groups.. La Favola One sleeps 3+2, and La Favola Two Sleeps 5 + 4 . The villa is at only 2,5 km from the famous "Maronti Beach" and the renowned hot water springs of Nitrodi. In summer, there is a a public shuttle bus that takes you directly to the beach. The bus stop is at 20 mt from the villa. If you buy a weekly Bus Ticket (Euro 15), you can use all the Island's busses with no limitation for a full week. Therefore, you can forget about driving, and you don't really need to bring your own car. Furthermore, a large supermarket and 2 restaurants are located at 100 mt., and at 50 mt, there is a nice caffé, offering - among other things - the famous Napolitan Coffee and Cappuccino, and succulent fresh croissants. One of the most single important features of the two apartments, is the large terrace each of them has, with an incredible open sea view, where you can sunbathe, relax and eat "al fresco".
Ischia in a nutshell:
Ischia is the largest Island in the Gulf of Naples. It is also called the Green Island, because of its wonderful vegetation and its woods that in certain areas grow right near the coast line. Ischia has always been a "must see" because of its long sunny and sandy beaches and its very pleasant climate all year round. It is the only place in Italy where you can swim all year round even in winter!!! The reason is that Ischia is an island of volcanic origin, and some of its hot water springs are in the sea, just a few meters from the shore !!! When in Ischia, be sure not to miss its most beautiful beaches (Maronti, Cetara, Ischia Porto, Castiglione and Poseidon Garden Beach), and to experience the very unusual Water Taxis, that can take you to secluded beaches. You should also enjoy one of the mini cruises with several daily departures, that will take you on a boat tour along the Islands' beaches. The southern part of Ischia offers particularly incredible panoramas and innumerable thermal treatment centres, well known also to the Ancient Romans. The Village of Serrara Fontana is the highest of the Island, and from its Belvedere, the breathtaking panorama you can admire is incomparable.
At the end of the day, after enjoying swimming in the warm Mediterranean Sea waters, and long hours spent sunbathing, one can either decide to dine on the terrace while enjoying the splendid sea view, or chose to dine out at one of the many restaurants of the island, and enjoy day-fresh sea food and the exquisite traditional Italian cuisine, and taste one of the round body wines Italy is famous for.

Family from Old Cwmbran, United Kingdom Sep 2014

Superb property in a beautiful spot. The views are truly amazing (Vesuvius on a clear day from the balcony) The owners are exceptionally helpful and speak very good English - which was a relief to our rather useless Italian phrases.
We had a hire car (athough admittedly driving anywhere in Italy isnt for the faint hearted) and as a family wanted a week to relax after the previous week in Rome & Sorrento, sightseeing.
We took the ferry across from Naples (much easier than we thought) after booking online, and the property is about 10 mins drive upwards from the port.
A very decent supermarket is within five minutes walk, the apartment kitchen is well equipped (and thankfully even had a kettle as well as a coffee machine!) plus a washing machine and good shower. Everything was neat and clean.
We drove to the nearest beach, Maronit, but if you have children (or children that arent strong swimmers) then I would recommend heading a bit further a field to Chiaia Beach, which is near Forio - this is a beautiful soft sand beach and shallow waters ideal for snorkelling and chasing fish.
We also headed to Sorgreto which has a natural spring for spa and wellbeing - this is free to get to, although is steep stairs down to the beach. It has a lovely cafe bar there and well worth the trip to experience this amazing natural thermal waters.
I would also recommend the Ischia Port restaurants and shopping, although again, with children the walk back to the apartment is steep and we opted to get a taxi. The shopping streets are amazing and I would also recommend heading to the Castello Aragonese for a lovely half day immersed in history. The children loved some of the gruesome facts, and the views are incredible.

In all - I would highly recommend a trip to Ischia and La Favola Apartment, we felt no pressure to get out and eat every night as the place was so well equipped and comfortable. I already miss not having my breakfast on the sun terrace!


From Stourbridge, United Kingdom Jan 2007

Lovely property with great views across the Bay of Napoli and Vesuvius.

The owner, Dominico Buono, was most helpful on arrival and was available to answer questions during our stay.

A very interesting and beautiful island.

From Bexhill On Sea

What a great Island and villa and owner!
The people are friendly and all the island has a village feeling ( we were worried about being close to Naples and its bad rep!)
The village is out of the main tourist area but has a great supermarket with everything about 10mins away and there is a small bar, takeaway and a great pizza place with views to the sea, all in the village. The apartment is very, very good. Just as the advert, clean,good size rooms, TV and air conditioning- but what makes it ,for us, was the view and being able to sit on the patio and look out to see and the wonderful bay. Dominco was a great host- collected us and was at the end of the phone for any problems- he has a shop in the next village and speaks very good English. Highly recomended- goinf again soon!

La Favola TestimonialI have travelled from coast to coast and back again many times over the course of the past 20 years. To Asia – Europe – France – India – USA – and back to Canada…With each adventure I find along the way, if providence prevails; a restful peaceful hotel, or a quaint B&B’s, or a picturesque villa or lodge while enjoying the local flavour and cultural experiences.But it was not until LA FAVOLA, in the small tranquil hamlet of Fiaiano on the island of Ischia off the coast of Naples, Italy that I really found the most wonderful villa of all. My gracious, kind and thoughtful host Domenico Buono made me feel at home by inviting me into his lovely villa. His warm reception and the fabulous accommodations of La Favola made my adventure all that I had hoped for and MORE!The villa was bright, clean, cosy and wonderfully decorated. It was more than I could have hoped for. The living area was inviting, and the bedroom was warm and peaceful. All the necessary amenities are available; including books and my most favourite… a puzzle! Just a short walk up the local street from this fantastic villa, one finds all that is needed!The view from the patio was the most spectacular site to behold. In my three months at the villa I spent many hours enjoying the view of Ischia Porto, the Mediterranean Sea, and Mount Vesuvius in the horizon.During my entire visit, I felt that I was embraced as a friend and had a feeling of ‘presence’ that was consistently enhanced by the kind welcoming attitude of the residents of the local area around La Favola Fiaiano.My sabbatical turned into a fantastic enchanting experience for myself, my visiting friends and family, and in no small part due to the wonderful friendship of Domenico Buono my wonderful host!I hope to return soon to La Favola!Marleen E.

MY STAY AT LA FAVOLA APRIL 2007 to JULY 2007I was a guest at La Favola for four months this year...from April through July. What an amazing adventure. I thought when I saw the photographs on the La Favola website that it surely couldn't be that beautiful. When I arrived and walked up the steps onto the terrace I found that the view was exactly as it was shown on the website...incredibly beautiful and breathtaking. Each time I stepped on to the terrace, from the day I arrived until the day I left, I shook my head with wonder at the beauty of this little bit of heaven on earth. There is no place like it!I enjoyed staying at the villa apartment. It is roomy with all of the conveniences needed for a short or long stay. Domenico and Angelica are wonderful people. They are helpful and honest and very accommodating. The area where the villa is located is a small neighborhood where the people are welcoming and friendly. The local market is a fun place where I found everything I needed as well as a smiling greeting each time I walked in the door. There are several restaurants within walking distance where the food is wonderful food and the service is excellent. The Island bus service is convenient and connects to places all over the Island. There is a great deal to do on the Island and I highly recommend the Gardens and the Castello. But once you see the view from the terrace, you may want to spend all of your time there!Thank you Domenico and Angelica. I hope to return to Ischia and La Favola someday soon. Future guests: ENJOY YOUR STAY!FRANCENE FERRAROUnited States North Carolinaemail:

La Favola is a lovely apartment with stunning views. It was very good value for money, and is conveniently located near a gorgeous hiking trail.JESSICA TEMPLETON UKemail:

A wonderful place to stay! Domenico (the owner), very kindly gave us the 3 bed apartment, though we'd only paid for the 2 bed, on account of us having a 2 yr old and it being on the ground floor!So we were spoiled for space in a wonderfully furnished apartment that normally sleeps about 6-8 people. The best thing about the apt was the huge balcony with a fantastic view of the Bay of Naples. We were about 15-20 mins by bus from the main town/harbour, but the bus service was excellent, every 20 mins, and I preferred to stay slightly away from the tourist section right among the Italians themselves. We had everything we needed nearby - a big supermarket, restaurant, bar and even a playground. We spent 1 week in Sorrento and 1 week on Ischia, and the island was by far the better place to stay - beautiful towns , beautiful seas, great food and wine, and very friendly locals!So thanks again Domenico for everything and perhaps we'll see you again!Paul Drummond IEemail:

We enjoyed our stay at La Favola immensely. Being situated only 15 minutes by bus to either Ischia Porto or the Maronti beach is perfect. Everything in the apartment was to our satisfaction but we must emphasize the terrasse that makes this place absolutely worth staying at. The view is splendid and the perfect place to relax. The owner, Domenico Buono, is ready to help you in any way and we have a very high opinion of him. We will defnitely recommend the place to friends and family and we will come back another time!Anita Cordes DKemail:

To Domenico and Angelica,Lucille and I wish to thank you for making our stay at your apartment so wonderful. Lucille and I have discussed how lucky we were to have found you, via the internet. We took a chance, and struck gold.The apartment was all you said it would be, and more. We didn't expect to see the big comfortable bed and such a large bed room. The view from the deck was spectacular, even better than the picture on the web site.The trattorias and the ristorantes you showed us, just a short walk from the apartment were outstanding. Your help in securing a cell phone and a rental car were very much appreciated.We were moved by the invitation to your home for Sunday dinner, with your family. Angelica is very charming, and she prepared a delicious (buonissimo) meal. You are very lucky to have two bright and beautiful (bellissime) daughters. Meeting your Papa made me realize how much I miss my own father, since he passed away.With the possible exception of a couple of taxi drivers, every one we met in Italy made us feel welcome and did their best to help us understand your language and customs.We left the beautiful "Green Island" of Ischia with tears in our eyes.Lucille and I will always treasure the many memories of our stay on Ischia.As we told you, our door is always open to you and your family.Ciao,Your good friendsDick and Lucille Spicer5440 Downham MeadowSarasota, Fl 34235 USAPh: 941-342-4512email:

Private Owner From Ischia Island Naples, Italy Member since Jun 2003

I have a long experience in the hospitality and tourism, thanks to the work abroad as a bartender and waiter. As I love my family, I also love the island where I was born and raised. So my greatest wish is that tourists visiting Ischia they fall in love as I do: make them feel at ease, advising them the best routes, even those less usual, to taste them the fruit of my land; at the same time it is a pleasure for me to meet new people and different cultures, experiencing a continuing exchange of views and visions.
