We spent the previous night in The Hilton in Serrento. That cost me and my girlfriend 150 euros for B&B and felt like any other Hilton hotel in the world, so for our trip to Ischia we fancied something different. Hotel Janto is just that.
Based at the bottom of a mountain with lovely views over casiomiola, this is a family run thermal spa where you pay 55 Euros per person (in June) for full board. The rooms are typically Italian and clean, the pool surrounded by flowers is lovely and the thermal spa pool and steam room using natural thermal water from 100 metres below ground are something a bit different and a great way to reinvigorate yourself.
What makes this hotel great though is the family who run it. You are made to feel a member of the family. The owner dropped us off down at the beach in the mornings after breakfast and picked us up for lunch.
Breakfast is a typical continental style with some nice twists such as home grown aloe Vera juice for the healthy. Lunch and dinner here is truly exceptional though!! Lunch is fresh salads, soups, pastas with produce from the Family's own farm, dinner is seafood one night, meat the next and the three courses each night have been the best food we have eaten all holiday, and we have eaten at many places with excellent ratings on Trip Advisor in Italy.
All in all this is a hidden treasure that not many English people seem to have heard of. The Italians seem to be keeping it all to themselves!! If you want to get away from the hotel chains and live like an Italian on his holidays, give this a try!! Wifi is also free and works well.
