Villa Laetitia, a charming bed & breakfast

B&B Villa Laetitia

Villa Laetitia lies in Ponza, the island of love of the Pontine archipelago, perched on the Scotti slope.

This Bourbonic little palace, which belongs to the family of Anna Fendi Venturini, has been restored to create an intimate atmosphere, using old majolicas and original furnishings of the house in respect of tradition and Ponzese style.

In the 6 sea-view rooms of this small luxury hotel, the vaulted ceilings have been preserved and the terrazzo floors are original. As well as ceramics, and the furniture that have been restored to highlight the shades of brown and yellow. Each room is named after a spice: paprika, pepper, cinnamon, saffron, cocoa, wild fennel. The colors, from the color of the walls to the linens, are inspired by the spice after which that particular room is named, as well as the aromas disposed in the rooms. To ensure a unique experience to each guest.

On some occasions, the owner has tried to combine her travel experiences with the Genius loci, by renewing it. The wooden ceiling fans for example are Turks. The walls of the kitchen and the living room – taken from the caves – are coated with Neapolitan ceramics. In Ponza, after all, the Neapolitan influences are obvious. There even is an Arabic mihrab covered with tiles, for a hint of exotic. In one of the rooms a loft was lined with watercolors purchased by a shoemaker from Ronciglione, an enchanting village of Tuscia. Other paintings with botanical subject are the work of Lila Latruli, a Greek artist.

Gli splendidi interni di Villa Laetitia

Breakfast is served in the roof garden on an old mill wheel covered with Bourbonic tiles and against the backdrop of a stunning panorama of cliffs, sky, bays, boats, cobbled streets and pastel-colored houses that descend in a steep balance towards the marina of Ponza. Where it is not uncommon to find someone who proposes you a trip by boat  to the island or an excursion to Sperlonga.

From the famous natural tunnel (105 meters long), connecting Monte Guardia to Parata degli Scotti, you can witness the spectacle of the sun framed between the rocks named “Formiche”, “Calzone Muto” and “Faraglioni della Madonna.”

The Monte Guardia restaurant offers to Villa Laetitia guests a warm welcome and an excellent home cooking accompanied by the house wine of the owner (Peppe ù Zotico).
