Villa Beatrice is an exquisite combination of old world charm and modern amenities. Spacious (there were 10 of us), comfortable and elegant, the Villa was perfect. The outdoor space, from the outdoor, spotless infinity pool to the stone patios & flower laden lanai, to the spectacular view of the sea -- simply magical. The multi-level floor plan made the space seem even larger and afforded a great deal of privacy. The Villa exuded warmth, as did its caretaker, who appeared each morning with pastries, just picked fruit and homemade wine. The website does not do justice to this Villa.
The villa is exquisite and exceeds the expectations in every way. We had the most wonderful time there, and one that we will all remember for a very long time indeed! The wedding was perfect at sunset by thr floodlit pool, Tina and the young lady that came with her to do the makeup were fantastic and all of us had a wonderful experience having them make us all “beautiful” for the event. Daniel, thanks again so much for the opportunity to enjoy what will be one of the most special and memorable times of our lives at your villa. Thank you also for all your help and guidance with the contacts for the hairdressing, restaurant etc, so appreciated. We absolutely loved Ischia, what a beautiful slice of heaven it was.
The villa is spacious and well tended, and was very comfortable for our group of 10. It is dramatically nestled into the mountain on four levels, with spectacular views of the nearby islands and the mainland from the rooms, patio, terrace, and pool. The stunning view from my bedroom and bathroom would almost overwhelm me. We all found that the building architecture, its period furnishings, authentic artwork and fascinating library allowed us to step back and relax and enjoy the riches of Italy in an earlier era - but with all the modern conveniences! We went to different spas on the island (our favorite is Poseidon) as well as the public beach (Maronti), and it was all fantastic. The food everywhere was wonderful, including at the spas and right off the sand of the public beach. Through the years we have been to Villa Beatrice with teens, young children and seniors and all of us had a great time at this villa and on the gorgeous island of Ischia.
Warning: Stop reading now if you just want a villa to sleep in and nothing more. Because Villa Beatrice is a memorable Holiday all its own. The pictures on the website are just a "tease" a precursor as to the what Beatrice is in person. You will fall in love at first sight with the architecture of its exterior, the Neapolitan style and grandeur of its interior, the almost angelic glow that surrounds the whole villa at every turn. You'll want to unpack and just stay forever. Especially when Villa Beatrice's caretaker for 40 years gently knocks on your door with his warm smile and graciousness and some "home made" vino in one hand and fresh figs and oranges in the other right off Beatrice's trees. With eight people spread over six roomy and oh so comfortable bedrooms we had time to all be together in the oversized living room and adjacent outdoor area or to "get lost" on any number of verandas, terraces or loggias.
