If you are looking for a place that combines the charms of Southern Italy and of the Mediterranean, the village of Sant’Angelo on the Island of Ischia is your ideal holiday destination. In this place – where time stands still and life flows to the gentle rhythms of nature – even a short break will recharge your batteries and replenish your spirit. Sant’Angelo is entirely car-free, and winds its way up from the scenic seaside road along tiny uphill lanes brimming with colourful balconies, geraniums and succulents, and the occasional cat! Full of local character, the charming little harbour – with its fishermen’s boats and a few luxury yachts – opens onto the clear waters of an incomparable sea. Every corner in Sant’Angelo offers a magnificent panorama. Not surprisingly, this resort has always been popular with artists, including the likes of Neruda and Gilles. The evenings are really special in Sant’Angelo, with its candle-lit piazzetta, the ultra-chic shop windows of its exclusive boutiques, and the ubiquitous soft music. Some dance, others go on romantic strolls towards Monte Sant’Angelo, others still relax and enjoy a drink: the one thing they all do – without a doubt – is wish they could stop time in this idyllic moment. This is the special magic of Sant’Angelo.
