We stayed at Baia di Sorgeto for 4 nights in July 2011 with our 3 boys (13, 11, 7). This was our half-way stop between 3 weeks of traveling through 4 countries and this was a much needed break. Peppino, Rosa Thea and daughter Claudia made us feel right at home and our boys were finally able to run free. The views from the hotel of the Bay and surrounding mountains are breathtaking and each room has a patio and wide open doors to catch the breezes. There is short walk down the road to the famous thermal springs, filled wth friendly vacationers from every part of the globe. The efficiencies (called "self-catering" in Europe) are perfect for families with a refrigerator, stove and sink. You will need a car if you plan to visit all the picturesque towns around the island, but it's a short walk to good restaurants and a market at the other end of the road to the Bay.
- 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
