We really enjoyed our stay here. After running around and touring Italy for two weeks, it was perfect to end our trip in Ischia at Peppino's B&B. We loved the indoor hot tub and outdoor pool which contained water straight from the volcano and which supposedly has magical healing properties. The location is really great, just a few minutes walk to Baia Sorgeto, the natural hot spring by the sea (don't forget to make yourself a mud mask with the mineral rocks!), and a great restaurant Gazelle that Peppino recommend to us. Mt. Epomeo is a great place to hike, which can be accessed by bus. Sant'Angelo was a very cute town to explore, and was a 20-30 minute walk away.
Peppino was the greatest and was the most personable host we've ever met. He has so much knowledge of the island and has great suggestions regarding what beaches to go to and what hikes to do. He always went out of his way to make sure we were having a good stay and even gave us an Ischia guidebook upon our arrival so we can get more familiar with the island.
Overall a really relaxing visit, and great stay due to the wonderful hospitality!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Ischia self-catering Apartments BAIA DI SORGETO, open the whole year, is situated amongst the lush green vineyards of Forio in Ischia. Our thermal pool, whose temperature varies between 32C to 36C, is refilled each morning with pure, natural hot thermal waters. These waters flow directly from the salty, sulphurous underground springs that, at their depth of 105 metres, heat naturally at 81C. The waters in the pool have therapeutic properties, which are reputed to assist in the cure of arthritis. In addition, the waters aid circulation and help maintain muscle tone as well as stimulate the skin. Sorgeto Bay is rich in hot thermal springs in the Mediterranean Sea where one can bathe in the sea, even in Winter. In some places, the sea is so hot that it would be possible to boil eggs and potatoes. And more: if a turfacean stone is scratched, a mud can be obtained which can be used for making a beauty musk for the face. ... more less
