    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We have guests from all over the world so you can have the opportunity to practice many different languages meeting all sorts of incredibly interesting people. You will learn about the hospitality industry and you will learn about PEOPLE. All kinds of people - we think this is one of the most important aspects of life-learning.
    The biggest island in the Gulf of Naples, and is one of the most famous seaside and touristic spa centres within Italy. The ancients called it Pitecusae. It’s beauty has not gone unnoticed by the jet set Jacqueline Kennedy and Liz Taylor are two who have been lured by the bright sun and soft winds. Ischia was also the backdrop for the 1999 Hollywood film The Talented Mr Ripley and has been the location for many Italian films.
    Today, the island of Ischia has become a well known tourist centre for its unequalled natural beauty, its mild climate, its therapeutic thermal springs, and for its modern tourist facilities. The landscape is varied and aside from the beautiful beaches, the island boasts mountains, hills, majestic promontories, spectacular volcanic cliffs, ancient forests and beautiful gardens. There are also many beautiful historic sites to visit and the chalk white of the island houses glimpsed among the green of the vineyards, the bluish green of the olive groves and the dark green of the orange and lemon groves add to it’s charm and beauty.
