Casa Vacanze Parco del Generale
Ranked #8 of 33 Specialty Lodging in Forio
Reviewed May 30, 2014

Imagine an immaculate, comfortable apartment with a stunning view over the charming island town of Forio on one side and a green mountain view to the other. Add two pools, lemon trees, an herb garden, flowers, bocce, and even foosball for the kids. And staff that is warm, welcoming, and full of local knowledge. That's Parco del Generale.

We stayed in May 2014 with our 3 boys (10, 8, and 5) plus our au pair. The 3BR apartment provided plenty of space for all of us, and the kitchen allowed us to cook with the local ingredients one night. We love that they've thought of many small things that make a place to stay special -- from a list of local restaurants and markets (including where NOT to go) to comfortable beds to first-rate window coverings.

One tip: Paola set up dinner for us to eat the local specialty Coniglio alla Ischitana (rabbit, in two courses - first pasta in the rabbit sauce and then the meat) at La Bussola - a 5 minute walk away. If you eat rabbit, don't miss it! We love great food and that rabbit is one of the best things we ate in 3 weeks in Italy!!

Our only regret was staying only 2 nights. We should have stayed at least 4!

Myself and 5 other lads visited Parco Generale from 22-25 April 2014 while on a tour of Italy. It was the nicest place we stayed in by far - the apartments are spacious, modern, clean and many have beautiful views of the beach and Forio harbour. They even have a swimming pool and a jacuzzi, and are also located 2 minutes from the beach and Forio town centre. Paola, the resort owner's daughter who deals with all the guests, was lovely and always really helpful. She took a lot of trouble to recommend us the best places to go and we had a lot of laughs with her, she was actually the highlight of our whole holiday! She cares a lot about every guest and wants the best for everyone. I can't recommend Parco Generale enough! I miss it every day!

Room Tip: I would recommend rooms with sea views!

We had such a lovely stay, the owner's daughter Paola was so helpful. They were always willing to help and make you feel at home. There is such a lovely view. There were 11 of us and I bet we had such a wonderful stay. We are certainly going back

Visited that place between May 27th, 2013 and June 8th, 2013.
Everything was really perfect. The apartment owner is very helpful and hospitable. She is always ready to help you, to describe everything you need, to recommend interesting places and so on. We are really happy that we have chosen this place. Sea view and the lemon garden are awesome!
Apartments are definitely big and comfortable. They clean apartments every week and provide you with new towels twice a week.
Apartments are located in a very good place - there are a lot of shops, cafes and restaurants nearby.
Strongly recommend! :)

We had a very nice experience at Parco Generale in Ischia. The owners are surprisingly friendly and helpful, even driving us across the island to catch the ferry when weather conditions didn't allow us to board locally. The location is great, just a couple of minutes walk to the town center and beaches. The apartment was more comfortable than I'm used to with all the pots, pans, cutting boards, and towels you could ever need. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: We were in apartment 4 which is next to a day care center. "Day" care in Ischia apparentl...

We spent halfterm week at Parco del Generale in 2 appartments with our family.It is set in a beautiful, well kept garden. It has breathtaking views of the Mount Epomeo and is a stones throw from the beach. Forio, a lovely old town is a few minutes walk, perfect for our morning coffee and cake at the local bar. The appartment was spacious, well equiped and very clean. It was a home from home, having everything you could need! Towels and sheets were changed during our stay and the apartment was cleaned. The baclonies had brand new tables, chairs and sunloungers on which we enjoyed the lovely view of the gardens and the mountain.. We spent many an hour by the pool on the sunloungers and felt the benefit of the indoor heated spa pool on slightly cooler days. Paola went out of her way to make our stay comfortable. I enjoyed our little chats every day. She speaks really good english. I highly reccomend this lovely place .Definately going back!

We stayed in this holiday apartment for 6 days. It is located within minutes from Forio Town Center and the harbor. You can find nice restaurants, pizzeria and shops there. The Apartment is well kept and very clean. The kitchen is well equipped with all modern amenities. The hosting family are very welcoming and helpful. Mariella answered our booking e-mail inquiry within 2 hours, and called us as soon as we stepped onto the Island. Paola, her daughter came to pick us up. Then we had an induction of the complex, our apartment, and local amenities from Paola. For the rest of the holiday, we have been well looked after by the host family with very detailed advice on local places of interest, discount vouchers etc. Near the end Paola kindly offered us a car tour around the island, and that opened our eyes to discover the real beauty of the island. We can definitely recommend this holiday resort. And we are looking forward to go back and spend another holiday there. A reminder, it is not a hotel, but a complex consisting of a garden, swimming pool, spa, outdoor events, parking space and self-catering apartments all enclosed in what I refer to as a well thought and spacious "mini maze".

Room Tip: The room we had, "A.S.Francesco", had an excellent view of the coast (front), and a grand...
