The island of Ischia bubbles and steams with thermal activity, and the spa treatment centre at the magnificent Mezzatorre Resort harnesses this to the full. But the 57-room hotel, perched in a pinewood above its own private cove, also offers exclusive access to a splendid bit of Mediterranean. Located on a terrace along the gentle path down to the sea is a heated saltwater pool. The Mezzatorre’s little bay is rocky, perfect for setting off with a snorkel to explore the local marine life. But the town of Forio d’Ischia, immediately outside the hotel, is edged by long strips of white sand beach.
