Escape to a Mediterranean paradise with our Ponza Island vacation rentals. Known as “where Italians go to vacation,” this dreamy, off-the-beaten-path location is sure to delight any traveler.
Ponza is the largest of the Pontine Islands, located about 33 miles off Italy’s mainland. Since it’s only accessible by ferry, you’ll find a peaceful way of life, and less crowds than you would even with other Italian island getaways, like Capri. The island is known for its steep white cliffs, brilliant blue-green waters and laid-back way of life, with a welcoming locale. However, a visit to our Ponza Island homes in the summer months means a little more hustle and bustle, if you’re looking to connect with other travelers as part of your getaway.
Spend your days exploring the sandy beaches, boating, or swimming in the inviting waters. There are many swimming locations to choose from, including Spiaggia di Frontone, where in the evenings, a local DJ performance turns the beach into an open-air dance party. Or you can explore the coast from a boat rental, even venturing out to other islands.
A stroll through Ponza’s historic center is a must, where you can admire the beautifully colorful houses, or stop into a restaurant for sampling the fresh-caught seafood. Or you can explore the Grotte di Pilato: a system of tunnels and pools within Ponza’s chalk cliffs that dates back to the Roman Empire. History buffs will also love a visit to la Chiesa dei Santi Silverio e Domitilla, a beautiful historic church located in the town.
Treat yourself to an unforgettable getaway at one of Italy’s best-kept secrets. Our Ponza Island vacation rentals are the perfect way to explore this hidden gem. Browse our homes and choose your favorite today.
