Emanuela and Carlo - your hosts at Villa Carolina
Each morning the buffet is stocked with freshly baked cakes, tortes,and muffins alongside yogurt, charcuterie, and cheese. There is always fresh fruit from our orchard, and we can also prepare eggs made to order upon request at no extra charge, and juice made with the oranges from our own garden.
There are no machine-dispensed coffee here: our cappuccino, espresso, and foamed milk (soy milk available) are prepared just for you by hand. We also offer a small selection of gluten-free options and can provide accommodate special diets and allergies if informed in advance!
Breakfast served 8 - 10 am

Both are open from May 1st to October 10th.
Sunset bar on the terrace
Enjoy the fantastic sunsets over Ischia and Procida from our terrace: nature takes care of the entertainment, and we take care of the drinks!
Do you want to relax over a glass of wine in the evening? No problem: at Villa Carolina, there is a small selection of wines, beverages, and snacks available for our guests at any time day or night...just leave us a note!
