Impressively positioned above San Francesco Bay on Ischia Island, Villa Eagle offers panoramic views over the town of Forio and the idyllic sea. Skilfully sculpted from local volcanic stone, its unique circular design and white exterior make it a striking feature against the lush greenery that it nestles within. The villa’s secluded setting makes it an oasis of calm and yet the island’s lively capital is within easy reach.
Sea views can be enjoyed from every room of Villa Eagle, which showcases a beautiful blend of Italian architecture, modern artwork and elegant antiques. Many of the rooms also open onto terraces. With its watchtower-shaped design and abundance of glass, the three floors of the villa are all incredibly spacious and light.
The lower floor is home to three double bedrooms with sea views. The main bedroom also has a sofa bed for additional guests and its own en-suite bathroom with shower. The other two bedrooms share use of a luxurious bathroom. Two also have access to a lovely terrace that’s the perfect place to both start mornings and end evenings.
The fourth bedroom is a double master suite on the top floor, with a beautiful four-poster bed, floor-to-ceiling windows with sea views. It has a sumptuous bathroom and fitted wardrobes for your ultimate comfort and convenience. There are also stairs that take you up to a small lounge area on mezzanine level.
The villa’s main terrace is exquisite, with seating areas for enjoying casual drinks as you take in the truly breathtaking views across the sea. These are even more spectacular as evening draws in and the sun sets over the water. The dining area also overlooks the sea and bay area. Landscaped gardens add to the idyllic feel, with Mediterranean trees and plants adding to the sweet-scented breeze that passes throughout the grounds and villa interior. There’s also an orchard bursting with fruits and vegetables, a private swimming pool and private access to the sea via a wooden walkway.
Amenities are incredibly easy to reach from Villa Eagle, with restaurants and groceries within a five-minute drive. Follow the private wooden walkway down to the sea to explore the rocky hidden coves dotted along the coastline.
Botanical gardens are dotted all over the island, with Giardini La Mortella (1km) being one of the most beautiful and popular. See a collection of plants from all over the world, with all the varied scents and colours making it feel like a tropical paradise. There are also beautiful ponds, water features and picturesque pathways to follow.
Forio (8km) has a pretty old town that’s full of historic buildings, which mostly date back to the medieval and baroque eras. Visit the 15th-century tower and museum of Torrione and Chiesa del Soccorso, a small church overlooking the sea. Citara Beach is around a 30-minute walk from Forio town centre and is home to Poseidon Thermal Gardens. Take the hydrofoil from Forio’s port to the fascinating city of Naples, with a stop at the island’s capital – Ischia Porto.
The bustling capital, Ischia Porto (10km), is full of restaurants and bars that have views over the port. Here you can watch yachts coming and going during the summer months – and you might even spot a celebrity or two! There are plenty of shops selling high-end clothing, so you can certainly indulge in some retail therapy. History is covered by the numerous churches dotted around the town.
