Reviewed May 20, 2013

We stayed only for 4 days in this very well kept residence. It was really fantastic experience. Everything clean, spacious apartments with huge teracces. Very usefull is the wifi connection. Very nice owner with his family. There are 2 pools - nice outside pool with deckchairs and umbrellas for free and a small covered thermal pool with jacuzzi which we use every day for bathing with our small baby (8 months). The temperature of water is almost the same we use for bathing the baby at home. The residence is ideal place for relax - just 5 mins from the center of a typical small ischian city Forio (with a lot of cafes, shops, etc), 3 mins from a large nice beach and 5 mins from the harbour where you can take the direct ferry to Napoli (or just a boat for trip to Capri or around the island). I would really reccomend this place to everybody !!!

Room Tip: We stayed in Apartment "Rotaro" - large bedroom, large living room, 2 teracces - very quie...

I want to mention the very supportive response I had from Mariella at Parco del Generale Forio, when I tried to reserve a week in September. She really went to extraordinary lengths to try to accommodate us, but sadly we were unable to see it to completion. This was not through any shortage of effort by the proprietors to fit us in, we simply couldn't get our act together, much to our great disappointment.
I want to thank Mariella and her family for trying to do their best for us - we really do appreciate it.
Maybe another year, we'll make it. We hope so.

We stayed for a couple of days in this family owned pension. The room had a beautiful view and was roomy enough for 6 person. The pool is surrounded by lemon trees and you can admire the green top of te Epomeo mountain. The owner is super friendly and he will tell you everything you need to know about Forio area. Price are really affordable perfect for a family.

Just returned from a week's stay in Parco del Generale, Forio. This area of Ischia is beautiful with a lovely beach, beautiful views of Mt Epomio, great restaurants & markets and very well connected to other parts of the island. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment facing the sea which was very spacious and included all modern conveniences with beach just across the road and great bakery next door. Garden was perfect for roaming children with orange & lemon trees for the occasional fruity treat! Outdoor pool was unavailable due to weather but indoor pool provided great entertaimnment for the kids. Mariella, Enzo and son Carlo from the off were truely great hosts, very welcoming and always helpful going out of their way to make our visit perfect, we are very grateful for their efforts. We had a very nice time overall and will definitely come back sometime soon. Highly recommended!

We stayed at Parco del Generale for one week in May and really couldn't have asked for a better location or accommodation. With two pools and stunning views from the front and back of the property, it has everything you could want from a holiday apartment. The accommodation was clean and comfortable and we spent plenty of time there relaxing in the gardens and on the balcony and terrace.
Mariella and her family were wonderful and very helpful, both before we arrived in answering our questions via email and once we were there in recommending places for us to visit and telling us about the local area. Mariella was also kind enough to get some shopping for us so we had some essentials for when we arrived.
Ischia is a beautiful island and I would thoroughly recommend it as somewhere to visit. Forio itself is a bustling town with plenty to do, including shopping, a beach and lots of restaurants. We spent a lot of time walking around the island, both along the coast and in the mountains at the back of Parco del Generale. It was hard work, especially in the heat, but well worth it for the stunning views of Ischia from the top of the mountain. A dip in the pool was especially welcome after a long walk!
The region is a gastronomic delight and I would recommend the local Ischian wine - the white wines from Casa d'Ambra were particularly lovely!
Overall, Parco del Generale offers excellent accommodation in a beautiful location - highly recommended.

We had never been to this area of Italy before and after careful research we found Parco Del Generale. Mariella and her family were very helpful and welcoming and gave us plenty of tips on where to eat and buy food.
The accommodation was perfect, we stayed in apartment Sorgeto which had views over the harbour and a terrace in the park, it was well funished, spotless and had a mezzanine bedroom, therefore the high ceiling helped in keeping the indoor temperature comfortable while it was 36c outside. We loved sunbathing on the terrace, admiring the view of Mt. Epomeo and cooling off in the pool.
We spent some time exploring Forio and loved the town and its winding streets.
Will definitely be going back!

If you like the idea of a holiday at the beach but don't like lying on the beach then this is the place to go. You can just cross the road for a swim and then return to shower off the sand and laze beside the pool.
Apartment Citara has wonderful front views over the harbour and back views over Mt.Epomeo.

Mariella, Enzo and familly are very welcoming and maintain the apartments and lovely garden and pools to a very high standard.

Excellent location for exploring this lovely island

Room Tip: We had the best apartment for views over the harbour and mountain..
