We have all heard of the Giardino Eden (Garden of Eden) seaside park&hotel, a paradise on earth, a dream of many people, or perhaps of all those who would like to spend some time in a quiet and cosy place. It was also Ugo Germani and his wife's dream. They made their dream come true for all of us, the idea of paradise on earth at Ischia, in the marvellous Cartaromana bay. The choice of the place was certainly of paramount importance for the success of his idea. This place is protected by natural barriers: the sea on one side and the mountain on the other side, which ensure privacy and peace, as many VIPs who have chosen Giardino Eden to spend their holidays since the time of Luis Menezes Vinicius, Fred Bongusto and Gaby Palazzo through that of Diego Armando Maradona and Gianluca Vialli to reach our epoch know very well. The new managers of the hotel are Anna and Ciro Calise, who have given new momentum and vitality to the park and introduces new and even more tasteful dishes as well as perfect hospitality.
At Giardino Eden absolute "normality" is the key to success, nowadays combined by Ciro and Anna Calise's and their staff's careful and precise management. They are good at creating a perfectly cosy atmosphere for those who come here for the first time. From St. Moritz to the Far East, Ciro has managed to grasp countless details which, applied to his incomparable delicacies, delight the taste (as well as the sight) of demanding gourmets coming from every part of the world. All this, of course, using the best fruits that both the sea and the land of Ischia can offer, seasoning them with rigid simplicity "the Ischian way" and accompanying them with a rich selection of national and international wines.
Giardino Eden hotel is also an exclusive hotel. From its seven rooms and its apartment, all equipped with air-conditioning and all the main comforts, it is fantastic to wake up under Ischia's early sun, your exclusive next-door neighbour behind the eyot of Vivara. This is a pleasure which, once you try it for the first time, you are not likely to miss in the future.
The island of Ischia, with its numerous thermal springs, famous all over the world, is a really unique place from a naturalistic point of view.
At Giardino Eden it is also possible to relax and enjoy its four swimming pools, two of which are equipped with a hydromassage system, surrounded by the lush vegetation of its gardens and an efficient pool bar. The sea area where Giardino Eden is located is undoubtedly among the most fascinating on the island of Ischia. Besides traditional bathing you may, if you feel like it, try some snorkeling among the Reefs of Sant'Anna, admiring sea bottoms of rare beauty. Heliotherapy lovers will certainly be enthusiastic to use our comfortable airbeds with headrests along the footway built around the main reef at Eden.
The sea and art: an exceptional combination on which young chef Ciro Calise has based his "quarter of a century" of experience at the stoves, paying the utmost attention to it since his very beginning as a "helping boy", following the precise indications of experienced people in the traditional maritime cuisine.
