Close to the Ischia Harbor on the dreamy Italian island of Ischia, Hotel Le Querce Thermae & Spa is a peaceful hotel that’s surrounded by unspoiled forests and within reach of some of the best beaches in the area. Overlooking the Gulf of Naples, the hotel has private access to the Bay of Cafiero, where you can swim off the rocks in the perfectly clear blue Mediterranean waters.
The island is known for its healing thermal springs, and the hotel spa has a heated indoor pool, filled with spring water. There’s also a Turkish bath, along with heaps of beauty and wellness treatments. Feast on rustic Italian dishes cooked with fresh local ingredients, and sip cocktails by the open air pool, which is fringed with greenery and colorful blooms.
Rooms have cool tiled floors, traditional décor and a satellite TV – though we doubt that you’ll be doing too much channel surfing when there’s also a glorious sea view to behold.
Pulcinella is an Italian restaurant with panoramic views over the Gulf of Naples. It serves an array of rustic native dishes with plenty of freshly caught fish, meats and local vegetables. There’s also an open-air poolside café and cocktail bar, overlooking the water.
The health spa and beauty center has a Turkish bath, a Jacuzzi and a heated indoor pool, filled with water from the island’s natural thermal springs. You can also book yourself in for a facial, a massage and a range of beauty treatments.
Overlooking the Gulf of Naples, Hotel Le Querce Thermae & Spa is within easy reach of Ischia Harbor and plenty of sandy beaches.

Your hotel is also close to plenty of vineyards and sleepy forests, where you can go walking and cycling.
How to Get There
My daughter and I stayed at Le Querce between 4 and 11 July, booked through Citalia.
The hotel is set in a magnificent position on the cliffs overlooking the Port.
The best rooms are the ones with the sea view balconies and from there you can see for very many miles over the bay of Naples.
We had a little confusion over the room when we first arrived, but the management sorted this out on the second day. All the staff were great but we would particularly like to thank Vincenzo (the manager), Marthe (on reception) and Antonio and Fabrizio (in the magnificent dining room.
The food was excellent by the way!
A few tips, go for the best room available, go on a bus tour of the island when you first arrive so you get a sense of what the island has to offer, and buy a weekly season ticket on the local busses. The busses seem chaotic at first but once you get to know the ropes you will find it very helpful to hop on and off. There are lots of steep walks to avoid and interesting places to see!
Dear Don Peppino (owner), myself and my wife wanted to thank you and your staff for the wonderful and relaxing time we had at your hotel in June. You have truly a lovely atmosphere which allows people to switch off and go at their own pace (the site walk around when checking in was a nice touch). Whether we chose to stay on site or explore the island nothing was too much trouble if we needed anything. It was also refreshing that you still play a major role in the hotel; to see you around the place to have a chat was lovely. Please pass on our thanks to the following staff who made the holiday special. Super barman Francesco, wonderfully helpful receptionists Anna (who resolved our issues when we checked in) and Maria plus restaurant waiters, who never stopped running around, Fabrizio and Antonio. The quality and variety of food from the Head Chef was great (we were half board); even if their was limited choice (as I am a fussy eater), he created a delicious solution. All your hard work and effort were very much appreciated. Thank you all, Steve and Seema
I would highly recommend this hotel.
The location was excellent, well positioned to the port.
Room was exceptional, with terrace and sea view.
The restaurants and food were excellent, especially the set menu, very good value .
Most importantly, the staff in every area of the hotel were fantastic. They went above and beyond being helpful and attentive, therefore making our stay a very special one.
As a bonus, there is an extremely talented pianist who played on the Friday and Saturday evening that we were staying.
I would recommend Ischia to anyone, it was a lovely holiday, and the hotel made it even better.
Stayed for two weeks and had a lovely time. Room a bit small - we paid for a superior and I think that referred to the view only but the beds were comfortable and the room cleaned and fresh towels daily. Food was OK, not always wonderful but adequate enough, the standard was better at lunchtime in the pool bar. Beach is improving as the boys continue to build the platform into the sea but beware the 300 steep steps. I thought they would get easier but not so. 15 minute pleasant walk to the port, bit of a hike coming back but only because it's been so hot. The highlights of the hotel are the views and the staff, Francesco and Claudia in the bar, Antonio (Napoleon) , Fabrizio, Maria and Georgia in the restaurants to name but a few, but all have been lovely and most accommodating. Would definitely return. And the piano player is excellent!
The fact that we have holidayed here for 10 holidays I think speaks very highly of this hotel. We do travel elsewhere during the year but we always make sure we have our main 'couples' holiday here. It is truly beautiful both the Hotel and the Island!
Other reviews have attested to the good menu and quality of foods and the comfort and cleanliness of the rooms and the hotel itself.
This year we have noted many changes to the staff and whilst we were very sad to note that Marvelous Max (Massimo) and the Lovely Leonardo were not among the staff here we were delighted to be welcomed back Fabulous Francisco in the upstairs piano lounge bar, where we were equally enchanted to appreciate the music played by Nikolai and capable and friendly service from Claudio. Our suite was splendid and again we noted that our regular lady from housekeeping was no longer on the staff but Salvadore was and again his usual helpful cheerful self with NOTHING being too much trouble to sort out for us. Big Tony wasn't there which was another disappointment. Maybe its our age but we did miss our old friends at Le Querce and we did find them again on the Island and they are happy and doing very well indeed elsewhere.
As always wonderful wonderful Connie in the Spa made me feel a million times better after each treatment I had with her. She is PERFECTION.
We will be back next year to Ischia and Le Querce.
One thing I believe families should be aware of here is that there is nothing on the island for children to do apart from the beach and a fun fair type of place that opens 6.30pm to 10.30pm and costs money! Babies are catered for of course but any child over two would get lonely and bored at Le Querce indeed I believe Ischia in general isn't a suitable Island for children. Its for honeymooners couples lovers. It is sheer unadulterated BLISS! You will not be disappointed here by anything.
