A dream come true of your own castle above the water ... Amazing and unique: apartments in the ancient Castle of Aragon. The Castello Aragonese is easily the most impressive historical monument in Ischia. It stands on a volcanic rock connected to the island by a bridge built in 1438 by Alfonso of Aragon. The castle perched on a rock towering above the sea had its golden period during the fourteenth century. There is just nothing to compare to it: the castle walls house churches, courtyards, antique archways, terraces, gardens and arcades with outstanding views of the sea, the peninsula, the harbour of Ischia and the wide horizon in the distance ... simply unique! Enjoy the fabulous views from your private terrace! Take the lift from the top part of the castle down to the beach and to the restaurants... The first dinner and the transfer for Napels to Castle are included in the price. Please ask for the link of our home page to receive more information. Thank you!

Spa waters: The island is famous for it´s spa waters and hot springs. The temperature of these mineral waters can go from 15C° and 86C°, therefore cold to ipothermal and thermal to hyperthermal. The hot baths at Negombo in the north-west of the island, are particularly chic: the facilities are well cared for and there are many different pools, as well as an attractive bay, surrounded by almost African flora, with palm trees and a wealth of flowering trees and bushes (opened from April to October).
Sauna: Appealing (and yet simple) are the small Gondola baths at the wonderful sandy beach of Maronti, in the south of the island: a small hot water pool situated right on the coast and a natural sauna carved out of the rock: hot steam rises up from the earth – so hot that you even feel the need to cool off on the sea, during the winter ... This is just the place to forget the rest of the world ... The hot baths, appreciated by the Romans, explain why the Ischian coast is so popular with visitors from all over the world. Last but not least: the hot springs explain the special climate on the island - they provide mild weather all year round.
1 hour by ferry from Naples. Arrival and departure transfer is included in the price! Day trips possible to: Capri, Procida, Neapals, Pompei, Paestum and the Amalfi coast with stops at Sorrent, Positano, Ravello, Vietri sul Mare and Salerno. The island is famous for it´s spa waters and hot springs. Next beach 1000 m, next restaurant 250 m. After a long day on the beach, why not relax in the Cocò restaurant. This small wooden hut has been around since the 50s and is just below the Castello, at the end of the causeway. We highly recommend their Spaghetti alle Vongole and after a couple of glasses of wine, it is comforting to know that your apartment is so near ... just a brief walk back home across the water, through the mild summer evening: wander along the boardwalk, with the tang of salty sea water in your nose, hop into the lift and travel upwards... fall asleep to the sound of waves and awaken to the greetings of seagulls.
Other Activities: Sauna, spa waters and hot springs, trekking
