A full week of rest and relaxation at a hillside hotel in Ischia with panoramic views - half or full board included, plus all travel

The impossibly picturesque volcanic isle of Ischia, just across the bay from Naples and Mount Vesuvius, is the stuff of legends, with people flocking here for its natural thermal springs, curative Fango mud (approved by the Ministry of Health) and magical hot sand beaches. Perched high up on a cliff near the pretty port of Forio, the brand new Hotel Carlo Magno adds yet another string to the island's decidedly beautiful bow.

Pastel-coloured terracotta-tiled cottages cascade down the hillside, with a front row seat to the splendid sea view spread out below. Wander past greenery and bougainvillea to the panoramic mineral thermal pool, complete with mini waterfall and counter-current swimming. Pass lazy days on the sun terrace reclining on a super comfy lounger, with plenty of parasols for shading you from the intense midday sun.

In inclement weather, retreat to the indoor thermal pool with Jacuzzi; keep fitness levels up in the Technogym; steam away your cares in the Turkish bath or indulge in a spa treatment. At the end of each dreamy day, enjoy a sundowner with awe-inspiring sunset to match on the terrace, before sampling tasty Neapolitan delights in the charming hotel restaurant.
