Piccolo Hotel Luisa

At Ponza Porto

A boutique hotel of tradition and charm!

The Hotel

Piccolo Hotel Luisa, or PHL, is part of Ponza's history.During Fascism, when Ponza was a borderland, President Sandro Pertini was a guest in what is now the Pertini Room, furnished with period furniture and with the characteristic domed roof of the old Ponza houses.

The name Luisa is that of the Founder, as the owner liked to call herself, entertaining her guests with anecdotes and samples of her cuisine, proud to the hilt of the results achieved with hard work and the invaluable help of her son Domenico, who since childhood has dedicated himself to the construction and improvements of the buildings original layout, a simple farmhouse that has now become a small jewel of Mediterranean architecture.

The family's love of travel has contaminated the furnishings, which are often inspired by Asian architecture while the textiles are the work of Jezima Mohamed, a master in the art of Batik who also served Queen Elizabeth II.

The hotel is now run by Luisa Musco, granddaughter of the Luisa whose name it bears, the same temperament but a valid background in Tourism Science and various experiences abroad before taking over the helm of the PHL.The Gamberi e Capperi Restaurant, recently opened within the hotel, has gained an enviable position in the island's culinary scene, with sophisticated dishes prepared with simplicity and with 0-km ingredients by Chef Luigi.
