About Us

Welcome to Navarino Villa.

Navarino Villa Apartment is situated on the ground floor of this Victorian house, and is owned and managed by Jonathan and Susan.

Having visited the Isle of Wight for many years, we moved here after living just across the water near Portsmouth. We have travelled all over the Island but we particularly liked Ventnor, it has a charm all of it’s own. We enjoyed our visits so much, that we decided to move here and make it our home six years ago.

In search of a Victorian house of character we found ‘Navarino’, a house built in 1869, which was in desperate need of renovation. Navarino was in a sorry state, but after six years of renovation and a lot of hard work it is now complete.

Ventnor has many Victorian properties, which were built from about 1830 onwards. The town was for many years, a popular destination for holidays and for health. The Royal National Hospital for diseases of the Chest was cited here, treating patients from around the country. Ventnor is also well known for its fresh air and unique micro climate and it also has some stunning coastal scenery. 

Navarino Villa Apartment, formerly the service rooms for staff in the Victorian era, now offers excellent self catering facilities, combining the old with modern facilities for a comfortable stay. We live in the apartment above with our dog, Rose and respect the privacy of our quests whilst staying in our property. If you need any advice, information or help we are happy to assist. If you decide to visit Ventnor we are sure you will enjoy your time spent here. There is much to see and enjoy on the Isle of Wight, and we wish you a happy and memorable visit.

Thank you for visiting
