Fancy crossing the brilliant blue waters of Italy to a sun-soaked paradise, including a 5 star hotel stay, private transfers, half-board and 50% off thermal treatment? Then you have to head to the tiny Tyrrhenian island of Ischia, the most vibrant islet in the Bay of Naples.
Think mouthwatering views of the “sea, the distant horizon and the Epomeo Mountain”, tropical temperatures that reach as high as 38°C, a selection of spa facilities including a thermal spring gushing out of the earth rich with mineral salts, Turkish bath and sauna. For health lovers there is the universally recognised wine therapy to stimulate beauty and wellness; enclosed by a high lava-stone wall in a beautiful century-old pine tree park with gardens, beach area and thermal water pools, lies the island oasis of Il Moresco Hotel (5*). Located right next to the elegant shopping street of Corso Vittoria Colonna, an area of exclusivity with plenty of restaurants and shops, this beachfront hotel offers sweeping views of unparalleled beauty over the Bay of Naples and in walking distance to the beach bars. It’s simply gorgeous and has plenty of space to enjoy the sun.
According to the Daily Mail it is “Ischia’s sense of La Dolce Vita which makes it so special.” The harbour town of Forio has retro Hollywood charm. It is easy to imagine the fifties jetset, such as Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton tanning themselves and strolling down the cobbled lanes to sip Campari at one of the delightful cafes and restaurants – this is island decadence at its best!
