Continental Mare

Neapolitan Riviera, Ischia

  • Perched on a clifftop overlooking Ischia
  • A charming, elegant hotel with two thermal water pools and a spa

The Continental Mare lies perched on a clifftop overlooking Ischia’s spectacular scenery and is just a 30-minute stroll from the port. Originally built as a private mansion by an American tycoon, the villa has been transformed into a charming hotel, preserving its former elegance and a personal, informal atmosphere.

The villa is full of secluded spots where you can truly unwind, from the blooming garden to the two private thermal water pools set in Ischia’s rocky mountainside. For a little extra indulgence, spend a blissful afternoon in the Club Benessere Mare for massages and innovative beauty treatments.

About the location

Porto d’Ischia is the island’s capital, known to locals purely as ‘Ischia’. Situated on the eastern coast of Ischia, this town is the closest settlement to the mainland and so acts as the island’s premier port, with great transport links to Naples and Procida. Once an established spa town, Porto d’Ischia is now home to an increasing number of trendy restaurants and chic bars, mostly set along the popular seafront ‘Right Bank’ promenade. Further inland, visitors can find pine forest parks and thermal spas, but the main highlights are found by the coast. San Pietro Beach is the most popular, thanks to its impressive stretch of sand and handful of intimate beach bars. Ischia’s most popular attraction is also at the seafront – Aragonese Castle. Dating from 474 BC, this remarkable fortification can easily be reached via a dramatic causeway that juts from the mainland into the sea.

When it comes to food and drink, Porto d’Ischia truly excels. Visitors will find a diverse array of eateries spread between the seafront and the city’s main shopping street, with options ranging from modern haute cuisine to authentic home-made fare. Wine-making is a popular industry here too, and you’ll find plenty of opportunities to experience this nearby.
