The Aragonese Castle, the most impressive historical monument of Ischia, stands on a mass of volcanic rock connected to the island by a bridge built in 1438. The castle overlooks the quaint harbor below and the expanse of sea beyond. The castle walls house churches, courtyards, antique archways, terraces, gardens and arcades with outstanding views of the sea, the peninsula, the harbor of Ischia and the wide horizon in the distance.

This unique location contains four holiday apartments and a small chic hotel. An elevator connects the entrance to the top of the castle (80 meters above sea level), where the apartments are located.

All of the apartments have windows and outdoor spaces with unforgettable views. Guests are welcome to enjoy many services from the adjacent hotel, including porter and concierge services and lovely terrace dining. The hotel concierge can give invaluable help — booking ferries to nearby Capri or Naples, renting cars or scooters, as well as information about Ischia’s attractions. Parking is a problem on the island, but frequent buses as well as taxi service makes it easy to get around without a car. Transfer service is highly recommended (taxi from the Naples airport or train station to the hydrofoil, the hydrofoil ticket to Ischia, and a taxi from the Ischia waterfront to the castle) and must be prearranged.

Each apartment has its own independent entrance through an ancient courtyard. The four apartments have been recently renovated by the owner, son of a famous artist whose paintings grace the apartment walls. All have windows and outdoor spaces with unforgettable views.
