Brexit and how it affects your travel

2018 - for those of you already registered for summer 2018 and beyond please  be aware that the venue may increase their costs to us for next season due to exchange rate changes and if this happens we will, sadly, have to pass the increase on to you. We would expect the increases to be minimal.

Some prices have risen due to exchange rates - sorry!

Updates - flight delays


My flight has been delayed. Can I get compensation?

Also read the following

Airlines don't have to pay out for delays caused by snow because weather is classified as an "extraordinary circumstance" – though some airlines may issue a refund at their discretion. For those of you flying to India you are almost certainly on a non EU airline so contact them direct to see exactly what you are entitled to.

According to Which magazine you can challenge your airline if you don't agree there were extraordinary circumstances – for example, if you are told you can't fly due to the snow, but other flights are departing. "Airlines may stretch the definition of extraordinary circumstances further than they should."

Which Magazine  states:-

If the delay is not caused by extraordinary circumstances you will be entitled to compensation under EU rules, but only if you are flying with an airline based in the EU or with a non-EU-based airline flying from an EU airport, and only if the delay is for two hours or more. If you are flying somewhere else or with a non-EU-based airline not flying from the EU you'll have to check that carrier's terms and conditions.

If you are delayed for two hours or more you are entitled to: two free phone calls, faxes or e-mails; free food and drinks; and free hotel accommodation if you need to stay overnight.

If your flight arrives at its destination three hours or more late you will receive compensation of between €250 and €600, depending on how far your flight takes you. So you'll get €250 if your three hour-delayed flight travels 1,500km or less (ie, London to Amsterdam), but €600 if your plane is delayed by four hours or more and travels at least 3,500km (ie, London to Sydney).

My flight has been cancelled. Will I get my money back?

If your flight is cancelled you should be offered either a refund or an alternative flight to your original destination.

For compensation you will have to look to the EU rules again, though if the delay is caused by snow – and thus an extraordinary circumstance – you might not get anything. If you are covered by EU regulations you will be entitled to travel assistance (such as help with rebooking for a later date) as well as meals and accommodation etc. Check the official EU website for more on your rights.

    Situated on the thermal island of Ischia in the bay of Naples, within walking distance of the famous hot springs

Our Yoga Venue

This is a very rustic venue in a wild and unspoilt area of Ischia. This part of the island has a natural, untouched feel and stunning views.

Just off the Amalfi Coast, the island of Ischia boasts natural wonders such as a dormant volcano, lush gardens, thermal spas, clear beaches, ancient ruins, and endless views across the Bay of Naples.

One of the worlds first health spa destinations, Italians (and Romans, before that) in the know would flock to Ischia to indulge in its mineral-rich volcanic mud and waters.

 

 

We are in a corner of paradise in the south of the island, perched high above the Mediterranean, with lush and wild organic gardens, surrounded by unspoiled nature, overlooking an endless sea. 

The family is committed to sustainable and environmentally friendly practices and grow fresh herbs and vegetables in their garden for your meals.

This area is beautiful, sunrises and amazing sunsets, olive groves, palm trees and wild flowers of beautiful colours will be your companions  alongside silence and relaxation.

  

 

We have two swimming pools

 

An outdoor fresh water pool on the terrace for sunbathing with deck chairs, beds, chairs and umbrellas.

This pool is refilled every Friday with the natural mineral rich water of the island.

 

 

There is also an indoor thermal pool with temperature of 34 / 36 degrees.

This is situated in a sauna-cave completely covered with mosaics of pumice stone.]  

      

 

             

     

The area:

The village of Panza is close by for cafés and shopping.There are also optional carefully-planned day-trips to offer guests a full experience of Ischia.

These include the village of Ischia Ponte for a visit to the picturesque Castello Aragonese and artisanal shopping in Ischia Porto. A guided mountain walk will also be offered.

  

Within 30 minutes walk are the natural hot springs at Sorgeto, which are one of the biggest attractions in Ischia.

The island's underground volcanic activity bubbles up from beneath and naturally heats a series of rock pools.

By climbing down the many steps towards a tiny beach in a wonderfully picturesque cove, visitors are able to bathe in a variety of pools, each with slightly different water temperatures.

Bathers usually spend the day here enjoying what is effectively a natural jacuzzi which soothes and massages the body to ease aches and pains.
