Throughout the years, the property was first converted into a pension and then into a cultural circle until the 1950’s, when it was bought by Italian film director Luchino Visconti. Today it’s a prestigious hotel that attracts visitors from all over the world searching for the glamorous dolce vita.
The hotel faces a secluded bay with direct access to the crystalline sea and is surrounded by seven hectares of pine wooded park where guests can take delightful strolls. There are also a clay tennis court shaded by trees and a gym with splendid views over the Gulf of Naples, but it’s the heated sea water pool that steals the show, guarded by the tower and surrounded by the azure sea and the sweet scent of jasmine.
Ischia is renowned for its thermal spas and Mezzatorre is no exception, with the island’s warm thermal springs bubbling up directly into the hotel’s healing pools located in the tower. A team of professionals is available for personalized programs and treatments using top-quality products by Santa Maria Novella and Biologique Recherche. There is also a spa boutique selling stylish sportswear, sunglasses and beauty products.
Guests will never be short of spaces to eat and drink at Mezzatorre, from the casual La Baia overlooking the bay and serving the catch of the day, to the fine-dining menu of La Torre, featuring handmade pasta dishes and local specialties paired with the finest Italian wines. Before dinner, guests gather on the terrace of Bar La Torre for the ritual aperitivo.
Rooms at Mezzatorre are spread across the main building (the tower), with stunning views over the sea, and the garden, with pretty cottages surrounded by the fresh scent of pines. The interiors are bright and airy, with splashes of colors.
