Important information about this Venue: Hotel*** Ideal, Forio d´ Ischia, Italy
The town of Forio, in the west of the island, is the Mediterranean setting for ‘In Sun, Wind & Waves’. One of the most beautiful strips of Ischia’s coastline, the golden sandy beach of Citara, is one of the pride of the municipality.
Embedded between the azure green sea and the foothills of Mount Epomeo, between palm trees, olive trees and blooming nature, we find somewhat hidden the Hotel Ideal, a well-kept 3*** hotel in family ownership. It is characterized not only by its quiet location, but also knows how to enchant with its wonderful garden, above which hovers the scent of citrus fruits.
Pure wellness is also well cared for: the two pools, a large one with water at ambient temperature and underwater massage for those who adore bubbles in the water and with counter-current swimming for those who do not want to give up the movement. The smaller pool is also equipped with an underwater massage and the water reaches a temperature of 38°C, ideal for relaxation. Both pools are fuelled exclusively by thermal water and are surrounded by a solarium with sun loungers and umbrellas, in the middle of the lush garden, an oasis of peace and tranquility.
We can look forward to charming, well-kept and comfortably furnished standard double rooms with balcony/terrace, without or with charming sea view on the bay of Citara and the bay of San Francesco. The double rooms are all equipped with air conditioning, TV, Wi-Fi, shower and toilet.
At the same time, the position of our hotel is not only a place of tranquility. It is also a gateway to countless adventures and island explorations: The bus stop of the bus lines is almost in front of the door. And whether bathing at various beaches, hiking on Monte Epomeo, shopping in the boutiques of St. Angelo, visiting impressive gardens or thermal baths – countless discoveries are possible spontaneously without much organizational effort, if the mood takes you.
Accommodation/half board costs EUR 85 per day/person in a standard double room or EUR 95 in a standard double room with sea view, plus EUR 25 if used as a single room. The tourist tax of EUR 2 per day/person is included in the accommodation prices.
The catering is provided by the chef Pepe Castiagna: masterfully he conjures up dishes as they are typical of Ischia’s cuisine and likes to use organically grown ingredients from his own garden.
The booking of room and transfer with deposit happens AFTER the seminar registration and full payment or AFTER our registration confirmation directly at the Hotel*** Ideal (a contingent is pre-reserved for us. Please note: advance requests will not be answered by the hotel).
Composition of the group:
Your short answers to seven questions will help Armin to get to know you in advance and to put together your seven-day-group in the best possible way. Please download the questionnaire, answer honestly and send it before/shortly after your registration. Armin will treat the questionnaire confidentially and answer you personally.
You will arrive individually by plane, train, bus or car. Your first destination is Naples.
You can find numerous cheap airlines that fly directly to Naples on the airport website.
From the airport, a taxi will be organised to take you to the ferry and then directly to Forio and our Hotel*** Ideal of Sant’Angelo (single ticket for 2 people or more: EUR 45).
We recommend the night train from Munich in a sleeping car (2 to 3 persons) or couchette car (4 to 6 persons) all the way to Rome. Here, too, you can get cheap tickets if you book early (3 months in advance). Change trains in Rome and continue to Napoli Centrale (about 2 hours by train). There too, take an organised taxi directly from the train station and continue by ferry to the island and from there directly into our hotel.
You can also organise the transfer from the airport/railway station to the hotel yourself, “Italian adventure” not excluded:
From the airport/railway station, take the Alibus to the Beverello (port): Cost: EUR 5. You take a ferry to Ischia, no matter which destination there (optimal: Forio): Cost: EUR 20 (speedboat EUR 29). Once on Ischia, take a bus on the CS line (circular line) and get off at the bus stop close to Hotel*** Idal: Cost: EUR 1.60.
A warm welcome !
