Ponza, Italy, the location of our retreat, is a magnificent island situated in the Mediterranean Sea just South of Rome and North of Capri.

This beautiful island was once a Roman emperor’s vacation home and is beloved by many for its spectacular views, ocean breezes and clear waters.

Upon arrival at Rome Fiumicino Airport on the morning of July 9th, our drivers will be waiting to accompany you to the little port of Anzio, one hour South of Rome.

In Anzio, we will take a scenic hovercraft ferry ride for one hour to the island of Ponza. The hotel is about a three minute taxi ride from the port.
