my wife and our teenage son and i stayed 5 days at pietra donica in forio. located on a main axis of forio, pietra donica is a 5 minute walk from the port and very center of town. as you walk, you pass several stores to resupply your daily needs and bars and ATM and shops. then in the town center , there are countless shops and restaurants. we had a two bedroom , two full bath , room for only 90 euros per night. spacious, 15 ft ceilings, comfortable beds, tall windows with small balconies. we kept the windows open all the time, because there is no humidity. no need for a.c. no mosquito bites among the three of us. exotically decorated inside the walls of an 18th century fortified townhouse. it is huge. the host, domenico, lives on one side with his family, and we the guests live in the other several rooms and lush courtyard. the dining area is in the courtyard garden, under a tent, adjacent to the kitchen , which is accessible all day and night. in fact you can cook for yourself if you don't want to eat out. many of the guests did that. breakfast was fine and typical. italians eat only a cup of espresso coffee and a small pastry and juices. that's it for breakfast, so don't expect eggs, pancakes, waffles. boats go to amalfi coast and naples. taxis and buses go to nearby towns. we travelled very easily from forio. lively night life on the main street. i mean that families and friends are walking and joking and dining in the open air, shopping, eating gelato, till midnight at least. great spirit. domenico is very hospitable as is rosaria. most accommodating. i felt as if i had known them my whole life and i was visiting them for a few days.
