"Welcome to Ischia - the paradise of "eternal youth", the Green Island, with its lush vegetation and the bubbling thermal springs, ready to rejuvenate and restore. A wonderful scenery for Owners and Guests to spend some quality time whilst on charter".
The "beautiful sister of Capri" as we like to call her, lives a little outshined by her better-known sibling in the Gulf of Naples, yet has so much to offer and our aim is to let everyone know. This charming corner of the Tyrrhenian Sea offers elegant resorts, spas and thermal parks, fine dining, two Film Festivals (attracting every year plenty of international celebrities), but also amazing botanical gardens and naturalistic marvels, trekking and diving, and much more.
A place where traditions are still very much alive and every season has its celebrations, offering seaside and mountains with a peak of nearly 800 meters above sea-level, secret canyons, secluded vineyards, forests of mighty chestnut-trees, thermal parks with gardens and pools, but also long sandy beaches, hot steam bubbling into natural stone pools in the sea and even allowing you to cook a meal under the piping hot sand, as well as being a paradise for dolhpins and sperm whales, who have chosen this area to live.
The 6 municipalities (Ischia, Casamicciola, Lacco Ameno, Forio, Serrara Fontana and Barano d’Ischia), offer variety of sights and facilities, a vivacious nightlife, excellent restaurants an shopping opportunities. One of the main attractions is the Aragonese Castle dominating the area on the heights of a rock connected by a bridge to the old town of Ischia Ponte, a place for romantic walks and of historic and cultural interest. Forio is the “Arabian” part of the island where the Saracene towers still remind of ancient dominations. Sant’Angelo, the characteristic fishermen village, is the place to be seen, enjoy a drink at the cafè in the local “piazzetta” and to shop in the little boutiques.
With 3 main port facilities and 2 smaller ones, Ischia is also part of a natural reserve called Regno di Nettuno, together with the neighbouring island of Procida. Procida is a smaller sedimentary island, home to fishermen and courageous seamen. A beautiful spot to spend some time in relaxation.
The extraordinary and strategic location in the heart of the Tyrrhenian Sea makes Ischia it the ideal place for a stop-over in between charters, but also and especially a fantastic spot to let your Guests enjoy their time in the beautiful South of Italy. The proximity to the airport of Napoli Capodichino, to Sorrento and the the Amalfi Coast, to Capri and the Pontine archipelago - and the favourable position on the route to Sardinia and Sicily - make Ischia the ideal starting point for a cruise along the Italian west coast. The island can also be reached in a 20 min. helicopter ride from the Naples Airport and in approx. 1 hr from Rome Airport.
