In May, from the 16th till the 18th, the town of Lacco Ameno celebrates its Patron Saint, Santa Restituta. It is a marvelous celebration: the town is adorned with lights, there is a procession by sea and the saint arrives by a boat in flames in the San Montano cove and ends with magnificent fireworks. A must to see!

I truly enjoy meeting my guests and am ever so happy to listen to their impressions and provide them with tips during their stay. At the same time I do not wish to intrude so I let them know that I'm available whenever they need me.
Ischia is also great for those who love hiking. There are many trails which lead to Monte Epomeo, Ischia's mountain, from which you can admire breathtaking views.
On May 17th Lacco Ameno celebrates their Patron Saint, Santa Restituta.A week of processions, town festivities which culminate with a pageant set in the San Montano bay where a small Roman village is recreated and the saint arrives from the sea. A must!
At the beginning of July the "Ischia Global Film Festival" is held in Lacco so if you want to have a close up view of your favorite Hollywood stars this is the place to be. You can also see the prèmiéres of movies that haven't been released yet.
Please note: The flat is mostly suitable for adults and not young children.
Please let me know if you break or stain anything, so that I may address the situation immediately for the following guests.
Thank you : )
I'm a U.S.A. born but grew up in Rome, Italy. Seven years ago I moved from Italy's capital to live in Bra, a small town in Piemonte, (northern Italy ) due to my husband's job. I own my family's summer home on the island of Ischia thanks to my English great-great grandmother who came to Ischia at the beginning of the 18th century. Ischia is a lovely island, with spectacular views, hidden coves and great food. It once was a Greek colony and indeed it's homes remind you of the Greek ones. I have been spending all my summers in Ischia and each year I discover something new. I love to share my love of this island to all the people who decide to spend their time in Ischia. As I don't have a profile, the one that you can view is my husband's whom accidentally I met in...Ischia!
