This was our second stay at Le Pleiadi apartments in Succhivo after a break of three years. The apartment was clean, comfortable and bright and had everything we needed for a relaxing holiday, including a large shady terrace with views towards Sant' Angelo.
The setting is very peaceful and the swimming pool is simply stunning being surrounded by citrus and plum trees and giant Strelitzia Nicolai and colourful Bougainvillea plants.
The delightful pool is fed by a volcanic spring and is maintained at a temperature of around 32 degrees celcius and has a number of Jacuzzi jets down one side.
The owners who live on site, and speak English, are unobtrusive and could not be more helpful if you need any advice or help during your stay. They organised our transfers to and from Naples Airport and we would highly recommend this as it is a door to door service at a very reasonable cost.
Succhivo is a few minutes walk down a footpath and road and has a number of bars and small hotels. Sant' Angelo is a 10 minute walk from the apartments and has restaurants, an enoteca, bars, shops and a bank. For trips further afield it is easy to get one of the frequent buses or a taxi to other places including Panza, Forio, Ischia Porto and Giardini La Mortella from Succhivo.
Panza which is a five minute bus ride away has a much wider range of food shops including supermarkets, a fishmonger, a butcher, two bakers, a great greengrocers and a number of bars and restaurants.
Our favourite bar was the Ali Baba which is also the tabbachi, and was where we watched Italy beat England on penalties in Euro 2012, much to the amusement of the locals.
We had a fantastic holiday once again and have already booked to return in 2013 to this wonderful place.

You can choose between two different sites, both located on the southern coast of the isle of Ischia: the little picturesque fishermen's village of Sant’Angelo, the ideal spot for sea lovers and sun bathers who want to be right near the beach, and a privileged corner called Succhivo, amidst lemon and orange trees and at the same time only a short distance from the most exclusive beaches. ... more less
