From 1943 to 1946 the British naval base in Ischia represented the beginning of the new coming era after World War II. All of the local people were involved in the new jobs created for the British Captain Gibbons and the Army. The British completely fell in love with these people and the island. They particularly liked to relax in one of the nicest spots of the entire island which is the beach of S. Alessandro. From that moment on, also known as “Spiaggia degli Inglesi” (the Brits Beach).
Villa iris is actually built overlooking the Spiaggia degli Inglesi offering an amazing natural view over the Gulf of Naples and blessed by the natural thermal water coming from the earth. This luxury villa was completely rebuilt in the mid 80s by the architect Giorgio Pes.
