23rd – 30th May 2020
Join Tracey Killengray on this fabulous yoga holiday located on the beautiful thermal island of Ischia. We have chosen this venue specifically for its location, to allow you the delights of this part of the island at an affordable price.
A small family run guest house – expect simple en-suite rooms and home cooked food – chosen especially as our budget option for this expensive part of the island.
Whilst there is no swimming pool it is less than a 10 minute downhill walk from a volcanic sand beach with crystal clear waters, sunbeds and a small beach cafe.
Yoga takes place in the breakfast room which is fully equipped with bolsters, yoga mats and yoga bricks.
We are the only guests
The venue will be for the exclusive use of the yoga group and will take a maximum of 12 participants in the yoga space.
This is true Italy and we know you will enjoy it.
Casa Benedetto is situated in a cobbled side street in charming Succhivo, a small village. It is close to famous St’Angelo with its picturesque narrow streets and lanes and high-fashion boutiques – you may either walk there or take the bus from the nearby bus stop.
It is also close to the Thermal Gardens (5 – 10 minutes walk) where you can relax in the hot thermal springs and have beauty treatments and massages.
Casa Benedetto has a small garden with kiwi vines, flowers and lemon trees. To one side is a small vineyard. The upstairs terrace looks out across the roof-tops to the sea.
Five minutes walk downhill is the small beach ‘Cava Grado’. Like the majority of beaches on the island it is at the bottom of the cliff, with steps leading down. Please talk to us if you have mobility issues.
Close by is the famous Sorgeto Bay, with its thermal hot springs coming from the seabed at a temperature of 90c degrees.
A bus pass for the island is less than 15 euros per week and the buses are very frequent, circling the coast in both directions until late in the evening. Perfect for those of you who love to get out and about.
All bedrooms are en-suite.
There are six rooms each with a double bed – sold as single rooms unless requested by a couple
and three rooms with both a double bed and a single bed – normally sold as shared rooms.
Two of the rooms do not have views as they are situated in the hotel alley, these are sold last. All the rooms are different.
Food is home cooked and vegetarian. A fish option will be offered on some evenings providing the yoga teacher agrees. Dinner is normally a salad/soup followed by risotto/pasta and then a vegetarian dish. The vegetables and salad are grown on the owners small-holding nearby.
If you have a special diet please talk to us before booking as these can be difficult to cater for because items we are used to in the UK are not always easily available.
Accommodation, breakfast, 6 evening meals and 10 yoga classes.
