Like the previous review by AussieinQ8, I am one of the "distressed friends" as described in that review. I and my adult nephew arrived on Ischia for a family wedding to be warmly welcomed to this wonderful property on the waterfront. We were having a marvellous time until an unfortunate accident happened, and in the very late of night, our host Amerigo came to our aid and rescue early hours of the morning. Amerigo saw us through what was a very distressing time and did everything possible to assist with translation with the hospital staff. Grazie Amerigo!
But things DID end on a positive note. Amerigo was there to take me and my nephew to see and discharge our friend from hospital. His responsiveness to get out of bed so late at night to attend to an emergency that was not even on his premises, find us in the dark roads and transport us to the hospital, when we had already stopped other cars seeking emergency help, and who drove away ... it was scary!
This creates the background though of what was a fun and ordinary night, where we had called a taxi which never showed, and our decision to walk down a dark steep road to our accommodation back to Rotonda. [However, taxis can be reliable on Ischia, but it seems not always]
All the same, my friend is recovering and doing fine. We had a wonderful time on Ischia and at Rotunda. Everyone who visits Ischia must meet Amerigo and his family who run other places, even if you do not stay at their places. We had a family lunch of 30 people (including young children) who were well catered for at La Casereccia, the family’s restaurant, which means “home cooked”. This was a wonderful afternoon and we could not have been looked after better. I asked if we could be moved from the inside to the outside garden and they happily met my request to re-arrange the seating several times. Thank you Tina, Salvatore, Giuseppe and Lorezno for a memorable lunch and afternoon. I will send you the photos soon of our day spent with you.
Lastly, THANK YOU Amerigo and family for a wonderful time and the generosity of your compassion, friendship and hospitality for which you are so well regarded.
Personally, I cannot wait to return to spend time with you at your beautiful island home of Ischia and see you and your famiglia again
Grazie e il nostro amore e l'amicizia! Paul Langdon and the extended Langdon and Loudoun’s famiglie!
Noi amiamo tutta la tua famiglia! Paul xxxx
