Cala Brigantina is a large room set among the gardens and terraces of Sunset Village, Ponza which is perched on the edge of the cliffs above the bay of Cala Feola, famous for its Piscine Naturali.

The Piscine Naturali are clear blue pools and rock formations all of which is accessible within a 10 minute walk from Cala Brigantina. In fact some of our photographs are of the view from Cala Brigante, of Cala Feola and the pools below.

A 5 minutes walk will bring you to the church and the collection of bars, restaurants, shops, scooter hire and bus stop. The buses arrive every 20/30 minutes along the single route around the island. A short 15 minute ride will get you to the port of Ponza.

Cala Brigantina is one large room with a double bed, kitchenette and en-suite bathroom. There is a TV, air conditioning and access to free wifi.
The French doors of Cala Brigante open onto your portion of a large communal terrace with a view of Cala Feola bay and the Mediterranean sea with Palmarola Island in the distance, where you can dine 'alfresco and enjoy the relaxed lifestyle of Mediterranean.

There is a very large, terraced garden with a BBQ and outside showers facilities

NOTE: Prices are subject to seasonal change and we have a minimum stay policy of 7 days in August: Saturday - Saturday.

Our home is your home and at the end of the day, crack open a bottle of Prosecco, sip on limoncello, relax among friends, enjoy the outstanding natural beauty of Ponza and watch the sun set over Palmerola Island.

Please join Sunset Village, Ponza, on all the social networks to find out more.

CROSSING:
You can book your boat crossing on line with a company called OK Ferry.

HOW TO GET TO THE ISLAND
To get the very best out of your stay on Ponza, we recommend not bringing your car onto the island especially when it can involve longer travelling times due to having to use the car ferry and parking can often be very difficult.

GETTING AROUND ON THE ISLAND
Once you have reached the island you can hire all sorts of different types of transport from small cars to scooters, boats and dingies, or use the excellent and often entertaining public transport. A bus from the port will cost you 1.20 euros regardless of how far you intend to go, and is 2.40 euros return trip. The buses run regularly every 30 minutes.... and of course you can always walk. There are some beautiful paths, and plenty to explore on foot.

If you take a taxi, all cost around 20 euros. We highly recommend Alex, his name sits proudly on the taxi and he knows exactly where we are.

For more details or help, you can find us on line and the social networks at Sunset Village, Ponza

FAST BOAT (aliscafo) FOR TRAVELLERS ON FOOT
Many people can't wait to get here and choose the hydrofoil or 'aliscafo' which takes about 1 hour for the crossing.

From Rome you can either drive or take the train from Rome Termini to Anzio. If you take the train, one leaves from Rome every hour starting at 5.07 AM. If you go by car, parking will cost you about 10 euros per day. Which ever route you choose to reach Anzio, please organize yourselves to arrive at least 1 hour before boarding. Seating is limited and there are often queues to buy tickets, especially during the months of July and August, and over the weekends.

We have the detailed aliscafo time table at Sunset Village, Ponza to help you organize your trip ahead of time.

By train, get off at the station after Anzio Colonia (the 11th stop), which takes about 1 hour. From the station at Anzio, the port is just a 10 minute walk away and you will find directions to PORTO from the station.

The aliscafo (fast boat) leaves the port regularly from the port to Ponza and you can purchase the tickets either at the port or online. For those of you who don't speak Italian well, ask us for help or buy your ticket at the port. It is then an hour and 10 minute boat ride.

ROME TO FORMIA IF TRAVELLING BY CAR
WITH A CAR:
If you do decide to take your car, the only way onto Ponza is by ferry from Formia. It is a very comfortable and relaxing 2 hour and 30 minute crossing. There are 2 ferries per day, one at 9 am the other at 5 pm.

You can buy your tickets on line. We are unable to give you the link here (those are the Airbnb rules) but you can find us at Sunset Village, Ponza where you will find the information you need. Alternatively, arrive at the port and buy your tickets there but arrive at least 1 hour ahead of time to avoid missing your boat. There are only 2 a day!

If you take the car from Rome, you will take highway A1 to Naples, follow the Green signs (Naples). You will collect a ticket at the toll and drive for about 1 hour until you reach the exit for Cassino.

Pay the toll which is abour 10 euros, then take the first road off of the roundabout (right), to Formia/Gaeta. Follow it to the very end (30 minutes) and it forks to the right onto the coast road. Please pay attention to the speed traps and cameras along this road. They are clearly marked. You are also advised to ignore the way that the Italians drive, they are extremely aggressive drivers. Drive carefully and within the law.

Once on the coast road, follow the sign Rome-Formia-Gaeta- take that road. If the traffic is not too bad, you are about 15 minutes away from the port depending at the time of day.

Traffic circle 1: 2nd exit (straight ahead)
Traffic circle 2: 2nd exit Rome/Gaeta. You will begin to see the sea and the port to your left.
Traffic circle 3: 4th exit will take you along the opposite side of the road you just came down. Folow this road for a short distance and turn right into the Port entrance and follow the signs for the ferry.

YOU MUST ARRIVE 45 MINUTES BEFORE THE FERRY LEAVES FROM FORMIA.

Visitors should have good knees (the steps) , and forget the business. It is zen place to be. Suprisingly hard to come there, but was the worth of it. And you should be okay with the cats around you as well. There is nothing build just for me, as an tourist, and that is really cool and special thing in Ponza. It feels real. Amore

I had an amazing time in Ponza and a good part of that was thanks to Gianluca! He gave clear directions on how to get there and even called before our ferry docked to see where we were. He was super helpful with giving us recommendations for day activities, beaches to visits, restaurants to try and even organized a private hire boat. He was SO patient with all the questions I kept asking him via text, and he even called the restaurants to make dinner reservations since I don't speak Italian! The room itself was clean and had everything you need. The best part of the room was DEFINITELY the view of the ocean from the balcony. Everything about the trip was amazing from the food, the views and even Gianluca! I loved it so much that I've thought twice about telling others about Ponza as it is definitely a well kept secret. I'm definitely coming back some time soon :) I miss you Gianluca! Thanks for everything :)

Gianluca is the perfect host. He communicated well and helped us with our luggage, explained everything well and efficient. The place is beautiful and immaculate. The view is as stunning as seen in the pics. We are so glad we picked the sunset village for our week in Ponza. The beaches and everything you need is very close and convenient. There are a lot of steep stairs everywhere - something you have everywhere in Ponza. Gianluca was also very approachable during our stay. He booked a tour around the neighbouring island Palmerola for us which was one of the best days of our stay. We hope we can come again.

I have just arrived home from a fabulous trip to Ponza, which was made even better by staying at Sunset Village. Gianluca welcomed me personally and was available to answer queries and organise trips, always with a smile. The location of the apartment was perfect and the view magnificent!

We had an amazing stay at Gianlucas place! The room was lovely and the view was above all expectations. The cliff beach just a few minutes walk away, was by far one of the best on the island. Gianluca was very helpful and easy to reach. Over all we had a very good stay at Ponza and we will def come back. The island and and especially the village where we stayed was not touristy at all, genuine Italian and super friendly.

Alex and I had an amazing stay at Cala Brigantina. Gianluca was a really wonderful host, who made sure we had a great time. Cannot recommend this place enough. When we took the key with us they were nice enough to let us drop it with a friend. We're conflicted about telling people about Ponza, because we want to keep it to ourselves, but it is worth a trip. The location is great, the accommodations are great, and the people are great.

Thank you Clara, it was a great time with you and Alex. I'm sorry for the wi fi. It needs sometimes to be restarted once a day. Anyway it hasn't been a problem for you but if you told me in a 5 minutes I could fix it without problem. Thanks a lot A big hug Gianluca, Ada e Viorika
