Il Giardino del Nonno (Grandfathers Garden) is an enchanting place immersed in natural surroundings amidst large-flowered terraces, pomegranate, fig, lemon, orange, and olive trees offering stunning sea views including that of the island of Capri, Maronti Bay and the town of St. Angelo.

This family-run hotel villa has been a growing part of the family for three generations and they have built this hotel on their love for family, unity, nature, and food. It is truly an oasis of peace and relaxation for nature and food lovers with gorgeous mountain and sea views.

All rooms are nestled amidst nature and each has a separate entrance and either a terrace or a balcony. The rooms are simple, spacious, and comfortable, all equipped with a TV, air-conditioning and a fan.

This magical place with its panoramic sea views and natural surrounding of peace also offers two hot thermal pools, sun terraces, hydro massage, and natural saunas and steam bath dug in ancient natural tuff caves. The therapeutic properties of Ischias natural hot springs, fumarole, thermal pools, and saunas help to restore wellness of body and mind and add to your unique sensory journey.

The restaurant of Il Giardino del Nonno is one of the highlights of the retreat. Enjoy tasting the real traditional Ischian recipes, passed down in a family tradition for three generations to Anna and Pietro, and their children.

Program

The village of St. Angelo can be reached exclusively on foot, which contributes to its dreamy, unspoiled atmosphere, making it a perfect little oasis of peace by the sea for your yoga holiday in southern Italy. The setting of this yoga retreat creates the perfect environment for you to completely relax and soak up the sun, deep breath in all the Mediterranean surroundings, bathe in thermal pools, detox in the sauna with daily yoga and meditation to add to your experience.

During this retreat, you will be able to give yourself the gift of time to focus on you, to re-connect and nourish your mind, body, and soul while enjoying the peaceful natural surroundings and authentic Italian cooking with freshly sourced local produce.

The morning and evening yoga and meditation classes will be held either on the outdoor platform or in the Sala di Yoga. Both areas are spacious with panoramic sea views. Both venues offer the experience of connecting with nature whilst breathing in fresh Mediterranean air and soaking up all the good vibrations on your yoga mat. Please note that there will be no yoga classes on Wednesday, allowing you to have an entire day to explore the island without any time constraints.

The volcanic mud and thermal waters (which you will visit at Negombo Spa) is said to have healing properties. It was one of the first wellness and health areas in the world with a history of more than 2000 years. The green island has so much to offer, botanical gardens, gorgeous thermal spas, beaches, ancient ruins, historical sites, endless views across the Bay of Naples, hikes or walks to and around Mount Epomeo, snorkel around the Castle and also yummy Italian food.

Boat trip

La Rondine is Ischia Yoga Retreats' recommendation. Full Boat trip around the island (enjoy a delicious lunch on-board an old sailing boat) and then enjoy the private stop to enjoy the blue water to snorkel and have fun. Also, other visits to explore the nearby islands of Capri and Procida are an option during your retreat. There are also boat tours with Oceanomare Delphis, on this excursion you will be able to join scientists in the search for Dolphins and Sperm whales which frequent the area.
