Faro Punta Imperatore Lighthouse, converted into a romantic hideaway, perches on a 172m high cliff on the island of Ischia, high above the Gulf of Naples.
It is one of Italy's most beautiful and iconic lighthouses on one of the country's most famous islands. Only 1.5h by ferry from Naples, Ischia offers beaches, thermal springs, hiking spots and fantastic food. The lighthouse is located above the famous Poseidon Spa and offers 4 couples the opportunity to experience an indescribable view from a magical location.
Today it is a place where you can feel the touching history of the tower and the power of the sea and completely relax in the simple, modern ambience.
Ischia has lost none of its fame of the 70s and 80s. The ferry ride from Naples is already a wonderful experience that transports the traveller to another world. Passing Vesuvius and small neighbouring islands, you reach the picturesque port of Forio in 1.5 hours. The scent of lemons is in the air and when the sun goes down, the island shines in a wonderful, Mediterranean light.
If you then stand on the terrace of a lighthouse 172 m above the sea with a glass of wine in your hand and a dear person by your side, you can hardly imagine a more beautiful place for a few days away from everyday life.
The lighthouse is a retreat with 4 suites that offer guests a unique view of the Mediterranean Sea from their beds. The light and the silence of this place make the guest feel at peace after a short time. The island offers a lot, but all one really needs is dear person, a glass of wine or a book to sit down with on the roof terrace, on the lighthouse stairs, in a window opening, by the infinity pool, near the donkey or one of the many other favourite places and forget about time. In fact, you don't even need a book.
A night in the lighthouse is a dream for many people. A very special, individual experience in times when everything is becoming more and more the same and replaceable. Faro Punta Imperatore makes this dream come true, but "Attention!", the place is magical and will not let you escape again so easy. Once you arrive, a feeling of total relaxation quickly sets in, which you should enjoy for longer and take back with you into everyday life at the end. A week can pass faster than you think.
The lighthouse itself, with its spectacular views, the roof terrace, the restaurant terrace, the infinity pool terrace and the large garden, actually make excursions into the surrounding area superfluous. Nevertheless, the Poseidon thermal baths, the small harbor of Forio, a boat trip to San Angelo or Capri and the many culinary highlights of ischia are tempting. The lighthouse team knows the best places and will gladly arrange a small Ape taxi for guests to explore the island with style.
The rooms with the high domed ceilings of the building, the beautiful terraces, the scent of herbs and the sea and the quite long climb back to civilization have inspired the decision to have a restaurant in the lighthouse. Breakfast and lunch are served to guests in a private setting, while in the evening a couple of friends of the lighthouse can join them. The gastronomic concept is still one of the best-kept secrets of the Amalfi Coast, but anyone who sees the pictures can imagine that there is great potential here.
