AN ENCHANTING GARDEN
House GdP is surrounded by a beautiful rich garden of orange tree and lemons, which it allows the guest a restful and serene stay.
Besides date its position to the center of the island is a lot of easy to surrender him to the pleasure of suggestive walks, to the discovery of a landscape, cultural and natural, stimulating and original. Also the stupendous sea of the island, with his black beaches of volcanic sand, it is easily attainable with few footsteps.
A VICTORIOUS BATTLE
The House is protected from the shade of a gigantic, centenary magnolia from the very unusual history. It is told that Ferdinando IV of Borbone, that often came to Procida to chase, was fallen in love of a prosperous farmer, inhabitant in the house, to name Sofia, which, oddly she withstood to him. One day in spring, however, the young girl, perhaps stunned by the acute perfumes of the island breeze, it was surrendered to the desire of the regal hunter. It was then that the king ordered that in the lawn, where heroic battle was unwound, she was planted, in memory of its victory, a magnolia.
AN ANCIENT MEDITERRANEAN HAMLET
Giovanni da Procida House is a small hotel risen by the restructuring of an ancient farmer's house of the XVIII century. The project, work of Leonardo Ridda and Julia Muro two young architects of Procida, it is therefore an interesting example of recovery of the valuable in bloom Mediterranean architecture in the island since from the XV century. The external arcs and the domes of the insides are the distinctive elements of this architecture, restored in this structure in all of their native purity.
