The location is great, the rooms amazing, but a few slices of white bread , cooked ham and industrial white cheese as a breakfast, is way under the level.This should be improved.I’m sure mrs Fendi would not take this for herself.
We loved staying here! Ms. Svetlana was so sweet to us and was so welcoming! We really felt at home at Villa Laetitia. We stayed on the second floor and had our own little terrace. The view from our terrace was really amazing. Pictures don't do the view justice. The breakfast was also amazing. Even though we didn't speak much Italian - M. Svetlana brought us the best Ham and Cheese sandwiches each morning. The drop off and pick up to the port was also super helpful! I would highly recommend staying at Villa Laetitia and visiting Ponza.
Fabulous hotel in the heart of Ponza! The view from our room was stunning and the room itself was stylish and full of characterful details. It is only a 10 minute walk to the Port and very easy to get to. We had a fantastic breakfast everyday and the lovely "caretaker" was charming even though communication was a but of a struggle (she only speaks Italian)! We were picked up and dropped off from the port which, we thought was a lovely touch. Would definitely come back!
It was such a pleasure to have Villa Laetitia as our home base while in Ponza. We stayed here for 4 nights and it was lovely. The location: The place is very cozy and charming and the location sits on the top part of the hill looking out onto the main port and you can also see the other side of the island from the hotel. As a result, the sunsets are stunning and it's separated from the main center of Ponza, so you get a nice location to rest that's tranquil and very local. It is a steep walk up with a lot of stairs down and up to the town, but that's Ponza -- the homes are mostly on hillsides and stairs are the norm. We loved it. It felt so adventurous every time we went into town - which was only a 10-min walk, at most - and after dinner you get a bit of a workout, which was welcomed. :) The rooms: The rooms are charming and decorated almost entirely with antiques. As a result, it can look a bit tattered, but as someone said it feels like you're staying at your wealthy aunt's house - I would say that's accurate. It's not opulent by any means, despite the Fendi name tied to it, but it's much more antique/charming. We stayed in the Pepe room and this was on the 2nd floor. I highly recommend staying in a room on the second floor as those have stunning views and the lower floor rooms do not benefit from an unobstructed view like the 2nd floor rooms do. The shower water pressure was great, but the plastic shower curtain left much to be desired. The tiles are also antique - I would imagine - so as a result they do look a bit dirty, but they are just old. For some people this may be a real turn-off. The bath products are fine, but very average, nothing as fabulous as you would expect given the Fendi link. But, my only main beef with this hotel is the lack of air conditioning. If you come during any warm month - and we were there in July - it is utterly UNBEARABLE without air conditioning. I am baffled why they've left out air conditioning, but decided to put TVs in the rooms. Maybe it was to keep with the "charm" of the place, but come on... it's a mandatory need and I suggest ditching the TVs and replacing that modern appliance with some functional air conditioning. Truth be told, on our 4 night say, we only slept well one of the nights due to heavy and unbearable heat. They provide you with a fan that sits on the dresser, and the ceiling has a fan, but both are not sufficient to cool you down in this heavy heat of summer. The beds were comfortable, but the pillows, not so much. They were a bit stiff. I think they can make very minor improvements to really enhance the stay - add air conditioning, provide softer/more comfortable pillows. Also, they can add a Peroni or two to the fridge instead of Heineken. Now they have only 2 Heinekens and some waters and sodas. That's one thing - the mini fridge is pretty well stocked for Italy. The hospitality: Mrs. Svetlana was lovely. She was so sweet and tried so hard to be accommodating, even though she doesn't speak any English. I felt so bad that I couldn't speak with her, that I started to use Google Translate and would show her what I meant. That worked a few times, but as a result, it's best you are entirely self-sufficient while you are there and if you don't speak Italian or Russian (the languages she speaks), you are out of luck. However, to book our transfer to the port, I informed her via Google Translate what my ferry time was and what time we'd like a car to the port - that worked fine. She works so hard though and she is so pleasant and kind. Such a gentle, sweet soul. I really wish I could communicate more with her. She is doing everything she can to make your stay comfortable and she makes breakfast for you and also cleans the rooms and checks people in - she's what makes the hotel so charming. Overall, this was a delightful stay. We will definitely return once they get air conditioning, or we will stay there in a cooler month when the heat won't be that much of an issue. This hotel isn't for everyone, but overall it's a lovely place to base yourself while in Ponza and get a real local flavor in a beautiful setting.…
I travelled to Ponza with my girlfriend for a three night getaway. We wanted a quiet, no fuzz place, but preferably something with a bit of charm. We were told via email that we would be picked up from the harbour, but no one was there when we came. We called, and about 20 minutes later, one of the two caretakers of the property picked us up. It then became apparent to us that the person we had communicated via email with was located in Rome, and not in the B&B itself. It seems like Villa Laetitia is run remotely from Rome, not the best way to run a business in my opinion. The two caretakers are friendly and sweet, but they don't speak any English, so your Italian phrasebook will come in handy here. The Villa is a short walk up from the town centre, in picturesque surroundings and with stunning views of the surrounding ocean. The house itself is super charming, but with no aircondition, or anything else resembling a hotel. I think the place is really beautiful, you just have to know that it is essentially a B&B, and not a hotel. If you want a pool and and a staffed reception, go somewhere else. The breakfast is good, and the caretakers make you feel at home and comfortable. Note that they have other offerings than what's on the table, just ask for it. They will happily make you a cappuccino if you're not into the black coffee on the table. All in all we were really happy with the breakfast. The staff drove us down to the harbour with our bags, which I think is a really nice service. However they charged extra for the washing of two bath towels that we never asked for, but were handed to us when the caretakers realised we were headed for the beach. Not great, but a small mishap that I think would've been avoided if our Italian was better. All in all I would be happy to recommend Villa Laetitia, but if you're looking for more comfort and a pool with an umbrella and no fuzz, the top hotels in town will give you a room for the same rate as this B&B.…
