Overview

Villa Elvira is a luxurious villa (two floors/320m2), with high-quality accommodation, set in a splendid unique private garden (3000m2) including tropical areas and stocked by eucalyptus, pine and fruit trees. Located on the top of a hill just two step from Forio (one of the six commons on the island) , Villa Elvira offers to its guests a very comfortable and relaxing environment with all the comforts (air conditioning in living room, garage) and it’s, at the same time, an ideal setting for those wishing to visit the entire island of Ischia. The villa has a private swimming pool (300 m3) , several relaxing reading corners, surrounded by palms, lemon and fig trees, a lovely patio, a big terrace (200 m2) and an exclusive solarium on the Villa’s roof (30m2), both with a fantastic panoramic view. Completely restored and fully furnished in a comfortable and charming fashion in line with the island style, the villa has an indoor large space (70 m2) including a reading-chess corner and a comfortable living room with a fireplace, 3 bathrooms and a fully equipment kitchen. The bedrooms are 6 but their availability is not the same. The double sofabed is in a bedroom, for 2/3 under the garden level and the third part is up, there is also a window, but some hours of the day you have to light.
The ideal and comfortable accomodation is for 10 + 2 or 3 people.
The position is close to the ancient volcano “Epomeo” mountain, the villa is only at 600 m distant from the beach, 3 minute walking distance to the main road, for the shopping area and the bus services. The nearest town (1 km) is Forio, an unspoilt, medium sized port town with tasteful shops and a wide choice of typical restaurant and bars. Facilities, including many delightful fully-equipped beaches (“Citara”, “La Chiaia”, San Francesco” and “Cava dell’ Isola”), a bay with its famous hot springs (“baia di Sorgeto”), thermal resort (Poseidon).


Ischia, the green island
Ischia is well-known all over the world for many singular aspects as the therapeutic thermalism.
The phenomenon of thermalism is present on the island because of the “Epomeo” mountain (800 m.), an ancient volcano, which is surrounded by a wonderful pines wood and gives the opportunity of interesting excursions (mushrooms and chestnut picking) and panoramic walking. The "Poseidon thermal garden", located in Forio, is the most important thermal complex with over than 20 hot water swimming pools, in which you could spend an unforgettable and relaxing day, enjoying its therapeutic proprieties. However, a direct access to the hot water springs in the sea is also possible in “Sorgeto” and “Nitrodi” localities, where you could also experiment the famous Ischia mud, excellent for all dermatological problems.
Moreover, Ischia, the so called Green Island, is also renowned for its ancient history witnessed by the “Aragonese” castle and by the “Pithecusae” archaeological museum with geek and roman devices, giving evidence of Ischia’s past.
In few words, each village in this marvellous island worth a visit. This is true especially for Forio d’Ischia which offers everything you need for a relaxing and, at the same time, funny and special holiday.



The area of Forio
Forio has a wide choice of beautiful restaurants with a splendid sea sight as “da Ciccio”, “La Sirena sul mare” and “Umberto a Mare”, renowned for their day-fresh sea food, or with a suggestive location as “da Peppina di Renato”, where you should taste the exquisite traditional Italian cuisine. Moreover, you could decide to spend an unforgettable night tasting the creative cuisine of the “Il Melograno” restaurant (one star Michelin), known all over the world for its suggestive and original plates, or to dance all the night in one of the many disco bar, situated on the seafront road.
However Forio organizes each year also some cultural events, as cinema review (this year “Luchino Visconti” festival), exposition and book presentation in the main square.
Well-known are also the Forio’s beaches as “Cava della Isola”, “la Chiaia”, “San Francesco”, provided with all the comforts (shower, cabin, beach-front restaurants and small bars). Particularly suggestive is the Citara’s bay, where is located also the most important thermal complex of the island “Giardini Poseidon”.
Indeed, Forio offers you several services as car, bike, motorbike and boat renting and sport activities as scuba-diving, montain bike, trekking and montain walking.
Finally, excursions directed to Capri, Sorrento, Amalfi, Ventotene and Ponza have also daily departures from Forio’s harbour.

A beautiful setting, gorgeous house, incredible property. The garden, pool, ocean view, charming house, and helpful people are outdone only by the beauty of Ischia Island. The owner was incredibly helpful and kind, the property is the best value for the money you will ever get. Our children had almost as much fun as the adults! Would return in a heartbeat.
