Make holiday rental accommodation on the Islands of Ischia and Capri, Italy your home away from home

Ischia and Capri guard the mouth of the Bay of Naples, Italy, with one on either end. Whilst they are geographically pretty similar, there are marked differences between the two. The closer you get to arriving in the islands, the more impressive and inspiring they become. Ancient walls and houses cling impressively to shear cliffs which drop straight into the sea, which gives the islands a timeless appeal.

Things to do on holiday on the Islands of Ischia and Capri, Italy

Aside from being a relaxing retreat, both Capri holidays and Ischia holidays are favoured by scuba divers. There are some magnificent dive sites to investigate, especially the cave dives which seem to appear all around the islands. A torch is essential due to the pitch black conditions inside the caves and the number of overhangs which seem to spring out of nowhere. Although there are a number of dive centres on the islands, contacting one of them before you arrive in your Ischia or Capri accommodation is strongly advised if you would like to guarantee a dive. The post-dive atmosphere is great, with wine flowing and plates of fresh octopus in clam source being served.

Places to holiday in Islands of Ischia and Capri, Italy

Ischia is the larger of the two islands, and can take a number of days to investigate the island properly. There are a great number of little shops so your stay in self catering Ischia accommodation is an easy and relaxing experience! Ischia accommodation is the perfect base for a family holiday. Ischia’s coastline is inundated with rock jetties which make snorkelling easy. Visibility can be as much as 20m, so there is plenty to see! Just be careful of the sea urchins which also call Ischia home. The island has been a haven for sunbathing and spa holidays for many decades, as the sands which surround the island are supposed to have curative properties. If you feel like getting pampered on your Ischia holiday, head for either Antiche Terme or Nuove Terme.

The Island of Capri stands on the southern tip of the Bay of Naples, and is possibly the smarter of the two islands. With spots to sunbathe all around the island, it is the more famous beach destination, but unlike Ischia, does not have its own diving schools. This is merely academic as the majority of dive schools in the area will take you out to the island to dive anyway! The Blue Grotto and the Faragliono are some of the most beautiful natural sights you can discover from Capri holiday rental, and the capital of the island, Capri, is an absolutely delightful place to stroll. There is an amazing amount of history associated with the island, especially when you consider its size. It is the sight of imperial courts, large monasteries and the Villa Jovis, from which Emperor Tiberius ruled the Roman Empire!

Weather in Islands of Ischia and Capri, Italy

The islands are blessed with a magnificent climate, averaging 17°C annually. In summer, diving trips and lazy days on the beach are very much the driving activities for tourism, and in winter, when temperatures drop to around 10°C, it is the magical atmosphere, remote location and staggering history which keep Ischia and Capri accommodation full.

Travel to Islands of Ischia and Capri, Italy

There are frequent ferry trips to both Capri and Ischia from Naples and Sorrento, so reaching any of the accommodation in Ischia or Capri is easy once you reach Naples! Naples International Airport (NAP) receives regular flights from across the UK, provided by ThomsonFly. BMI have a range of cheap flights to Naples too, but the frequency of these varies dramatically seasonally.

The Villa is well sized with terraces overlooking both the hills and the sea. The bedrooms are comfortable and the lounge is very spacious. Giovanna goes out of her way to provide help and information whenever needed. This Villa provided an excellent base from which to have a very happy holiday. It is even within walking distance of the La Mortella Gardens. Well worth a visit!

The view from the garden is stunning and we spent hours sitting looking over the harbour. It is quite a walk from Capri town and the harbour so may be a problem for the not so fit but there are buses that stop nearby and taxis.
