Luxury Ischia Holidays

One of Italy’s up and coming islands

Ischia is one of Italy’s up and coming islands, rivalling Capri as a lesser-known Italian Jewel. Ischia is a must visit if you’re looking for a unique Italian island escape away from the typical tourist crowds, without compromising on quality. Despite the calm lack of tourists, the island is still easy to get to and explore from as it sits in plain sight next to its busier neighbour. If you still have your eyes on a trip to explore the glitz and glamour of Capri for the day, then you can, with a short ferry ride before returning to the tranquil surroundings Ischia provides. We recommend a visit soon while the island remains one of Italy’s best kept secrets.  

Once a hotspot for the rich and famous (Leonardo Dicaprio, Gwyneth Paltrow and Matt Damon spent time here while filming the famous The Talented Mr Ripley), the island is home to the beaches of Maronti, Lacco Ameno and Citara, all of which boast plush sands and crystal-clear waters. 

Ischia is perfect for couples looking for a rejuvenating and indulgent holiday as the island is known as the Capital of European Spas. The island is famous for its natural thermal springs and the Cavascura thermal baths, which are set on a cliff where hot natural showers and private Roman baths are available for a soothing experience.  

For added romance on your trip, take a trip to ‘The Green Island’, this dazzling garden makes for the perfect afternoon of wandering through the flora and fauna in the glistening Italian sunshine.
