Your own room, sharing a 2 bed self-catering apartment with Terrace and Sea View
I have a 'spare' room in a wonderful apartment in Forio, on the west coast of Ischia off the west coast of Italy. Access to the destination is via ferry from Naples and you will be travelling independently as I will already be on the island when this booking commences - I booked a 2 bed/2 bath expecting to be joined by a couple who then changed their minds, but the deposit was already paid. It's a great deal at 110 Euros per day for the Apartment - of which you would pay half for your room and full use of the common areas.
The split-level Apartment has a double bedroom including bathroom en suite without shower, additional double bed and a single bed on a loft, large living room with kitchenette, additional bathroom with shower, terrace overlooking the sea and another ample terrace on the landward side. There is also a washing machine, so you can travel light :)
The development is on the promenade of Forio, within walking distance from the center and the ferry arrival dock, with a stunning view of the sea, harbour and the nearby Epomeo mountain. There is an indoor and outdoor pool, fitness area, and large private parking space, if you are thinking of renting a car. Buses around the island leave from the town centre, so a car isn't strictly necessary unless you fancy climbing some of the mountains in the interior.
The island has recently enjoyed a boost in reputation from the novels of Elena Ferrante and it has many wonderful beaches, natural 'sorgente' spas using water from volcanic sources.
The dates of my booking are fixed, checking in May 25 and checking out 3 Jun (AM), a total of 9 nights, however you don't necessarily have to stay the whole period. I understand you have your own plans and I'll only expect you to pay for the days & nights you stay, assuming you are a single traveller like myself this would be half = 55 Euros per night, however if you are a couple you will pay two thirds = 73.50 per night between you for use of the self-contained double room en-suite, which I hope you will agree is very good value for the facilities and setting on offer.
I look forward to hearing from some of the lovely ladies out there who fancy an affordable break in the sun at a destination with much to offer.
