This experience, in a nutshell

We offer a week of sea and sailing in the splendid Pontine islands in the name of relaxation, sunbathing, swimming in crystal clear water, aperitifs at sunset ... but also navigation, life experience on board, conviviality and fun in contact with nature!

We will discover the islands by moving slowly from one bay to another, between short sailings, excursions with the tender, snorkeling in the most suggestive spots; in the evening we will often go ashore to immerse ourselves in the liveliness of Ponza Porto or to savor the more intimate atmosphere of Ventotene .

There will be two on board, Elena and I and we will do everything to make you spend an unforgettable week! To make your holiday more comfortable and enjoyable, we board a maximum of 4 people.

The Pontine Islands are indisputably among the most beautiful islands in the Mediterranean! Despite being close to each other (Palmarola and Ventotene are respectively one and three hours by boat from Ponza) they are very different from each other despite having in common the extreme beauty of the coasts and the exceptional transparency of the water!

PONZA

One of the main characteristics of Ponza, seen through the eyes of those who go by sea, is that of offering shelter in all wind and sea conditions, both because it is positioned across the prevailing winds, and for its morphology: this allows you to find almost always flat water conditions on one of the two sides of the island and a pleasant breeze coming from the land, especially in the evening hours! Ponza is also characteristic for the colors of its volcanic rocks: white, ocher and various shades of brown create unique and fascinating compositions, present in no other island in the Mediterranean! The most evocative part of the island is the west, with the famous beach of Chiaia di Luna, the splendid caves of Capo Bianco which can also be traveled with the tender, the bay of Lucia Rosa and its Faraglioni, the pools of Cala Feola ... but equally beautiful are the beaches on the east side of the island such as Cala Inferno, Cala del Cuore, Cala dell'Arco Naturale, Frontone and others. Snorkelers will be struck by the transparency of the water and the beauty of the seabed. Ponza is also a worldly island, frequented by the international jet set and its colorful village is full of restaurants, bars and characteristic clubs.

PALMAROLA

Palmarola, on the other hand, is a desert island for most of the year, frequented only in the summer by the owners of cave houses, typical houses carved into the rock that overlook Cala del Porto on the west side of the island and a few other buildings. ; in Cala del Porto there is also the only restaurant on the island. Trekking lovers can walk the path that goes from the beach to the top of the island to enjoy the splendid panorama! The eastern side of the island, near the Forcina rock and the Spermaturo rock, is characterized by Caribbean-colored water while in the northern part of the island there is the splendid Tramontana cove, also called Cala Cattedrale due to the shape of the overhanging rock on the sea and where you can often see groups of goats perched on the rocks in absolutely unexpected points! To the south of the island we find another splendid bay, Cala Brigantino, bordered by the stacks of Mezzogiorno with sequences of caves and passages that enhance the colors of the water. But Palmarola is not just this ... every stretch of coast of this island hides wonders, which we will discover while wandering around with the tender!

VENTOTENE

Ventotene is more difficult to describe because the characteristic of this island is the atmosphere: quiet, relaxing, intimate! Seen from the sea, its dark color is striking, due to the tuff that make up its coasts; approaching the shore you can appreciate the absolute transparency of the water and putting the mask on you will discover splendid seabeds rich in fish due to the presence of the protected marine area. On the southern side of the island, in addition to the wide dark sandy beach of Cala Nave, there are small beaches that can be reached by tender, while on the north side we find the beaches of Parata Grande and Calarossano.

One of the main features of the island is the Roman port, dug into the tuff in the Romanesque period and still usable today; from the small harbor the small and pretty village extends upwards, ending in a large square overlooked by the Town Hall; a little further on there is a splendid balcony that overlooks Cala Nave and the opposite islet of Santo Stefano.

Every day ... and several times a day ... you will be distressed by the " sailor's dilemma ": stay to continue to savor the beauty of the already discovered place or leave in search of a new place, perhaps more beautiful, perhaps less beautiful, but certainly different ...

Leonardo e Elena sono una squadra meravigliosa. Con armonia, professionalità e passione mi hanno accompagnata durante mia prima esperienza in barca a vela. Nulla è stato lasciato al caso, la barca è meravigliosa, pulita e curata nei dettagli. Elena è una cuoca eccellente e la sua compagnia e il suo supporto rendono la vacanza semplice e comoda. Che dire di Leonardo "capitano mio capitano" ci ha fatto scoprire le bellezza di Ponza e Palmarola con la gioia di chi ama il suo lavoro! Abbiamo esplorato calette e anfratti dai colori meravigliosi grazie al tender che Leonardo ha messo a disposizione per farci vivere la magia di queste isole. Mi sono sentita sicura e in famiglia. Tra risate e aperitivi si è creata subito armonia e spirito di gruppo! Non dimenticherò mai questo week end e i miei meravigliosi compagni di viaggio! Grazie Leonardo e Elena...alla prossima!!

Le condizioni meteo durante il nostro giro delle Isole Pontine non sono state delle migliori ma Leonardo, navigando in sicurezza, ci ha condotto tra le Isole ottimizzando il tempo rimasto a nostra disposizione per farci godere delle meraviglie offerte dalle isole. La barca è molto bella e confortevole grazie anche alle cure di Elena che supporta Leonardo nella navigazione. La loro passione si percepisce fin dal primo momento in cui accolgono l'equipaggio e alle loro costanti attenzioni per far trascorrere al meglio la vacanza. Grazie!!!

Le isole Pontine sono state una inaspettata sorpresa per la bellezza delle acque e le tante grotte da esplorare; una vera meraviglia per chiunque ami nuotare e fare snorkelling. Leonardo sa come farle apprezzare al meglio portando gli ospiti a visitare i posti più magici . la sua barca è ampia e comoda, Leonardo naviga sempre in sicurezza ed è una garanzia anche per chi soffre un pò il mare. Sua moglie lo coadiuva ed è bravissima in cucina . Insomma una coppia perfetta con cui imbarcarsi per passare una rigenerante vacanza.
