A beautiful oasis
Posted Sep 19, 2015 on Hotels
I spent days even weeks trying to book a hotel on Ischia. At the last minute I changed hotels and booked Hotel Semiramis because I wanted to be near Forio because of recommendations that this was the side of the island we should be and because I wasn't going to make my mother walk too far! I was right to trust my instincts. This charming, family run hotel, 5 minutes from the beautiful, clear, sandy beach as well as the extraordinary Poseidon had everything we could possibly want including the large volcanic heated swimming pool that you could dip into before breakfast, which incidentally was one of the best hotel breakfasts I have had, beauty treatments and massages at a very reasonable price, and outside space in an exotic garden created by architect, artist and owner of the Semiramis to play a game in the evenings with a glass of beautiful Ischian wine from the bar before walking 2 minutes down to the beach again to eat in one of six or seven incredible and not too expensive restaurants popular with Italians and foreigners alike. So great was this hotel and so enchanted by Ischia we have become that we have sworn to return next year.
