Alfredo, thank you so much for all, for your wonderful Refuge on Monte Rosa. For your hospitality! I barely couldn't believe my eyes when I first entered through the gate. I planned to read a lot but instead I sat there and stared in awe at the magnificent view, at the smoking Stromboli on the horizon, at the ocean, the sunset, the falcons circling above. I want to be there, right now. I will return. Cheers from New York Andi
We were very happy with our accommodation. Apartment was very nice and spacious,the position was opposite the beach the very large side balcony was very handy and the parking in front of apartment was a bonus.
We wii definitely book again
Atollo is one of the most beautiful and special places I have ever stayed at. It's hard to even describe how amazing and unique it is. The views across the sea to Panarea and Stromboli are absolutely stunning, and the surrounding landscape is incredibly lush. I stayed for five days and I wish that I could have stayed even longer. You don't even need to go anywhere, I was totally content to just spend time on the veranda watching the clouds. The cottage is very comfortable, and it felt so cozy even in the middle of a storm. There are thoughtful touches everywhere and I had everything I needed to cook. The outdoor kitchen was a pleasure to use as was the outdoor shower. I would say that this is a place for a particular kind of experience that's not for everyone. It's about a vigorous 10 minute walk/hike from the top of the road and it's quite dark at night (a headlamp helps!). Some people may feel put off by the fact that it's quite isolated, but if you like feeling in the middle of nature with only the sound of the wind and birds and bees, then this place is for you. In terms of getting around, I managed to not rent a car, it's about a 40 minute walk down into town. On a lazy night I took a cab to the top of the road and that ran me about 25 euros. With a little planning though it's an extremely rewarding experience and I highly recommend it to those who are looking for something a little more off the beaten path.
The outside space is the best thing about House Particular. Stunning views, relaxed outdoor seating and peace and tranquility, we loved it
My stay at Canneto could not have been any nicer.
A place in heaven !!! Great location with an amazing view on the see and other islands. We were very welcomed into this place and recommend it to everyone!
Ideale ritiro per gli amanti della natura e del silenzio. La casetta e' accogliente e arredata con ottimo gusto e cura per i dettagli. L'accoglienza deliziosa, con le declinazioni al limone della signora: ciambella, granita e marmellata! Cucina e bagno sono un po' spartani, ma a compensazione sono il giardino privato, con le sue cascate di fiori ed il limone carico di frutti e le sdraio per ammirare la vista sulle isole. L'alba e' stupenda e si puo' godere direttamente dal letto!
Alfredo's house is just lovely. If you are looking for a quite place and enjoy nature that's just the place to go. The view, especially at night, is just stunning. We were picked up at the port and guided to the house. The house is very clean and everything we needed was provided. We enjoyed every minute of our stay.
a unique and wonderful gem in the lonelyness of nature. if you don‘t mind walking for a bit to come home and if you‘re not afraid beeing in the middle of nature quite away of the next houses, then you will be very happy!
The room is like in the pictures. It has AC. Very clean, a very nice view at the beach. You can see the port of Canetto. The bus stop, super market, bakery can be reached in s perfect. My girlfriend and I enjoyed the stay.
A really gorgeous place. I could just sit in front of that house and enjoy the view for a week straight. Alfredo was very friendly and helpful, too. We'd come back anytime.
We knew that the house had the great view, but the 360 views from the terraces are truly stunning, and much more than one can expect. We enjoy being there watching Stromboli, the sea, the sky and the landscape at sunrise, in the morning, in the afternoon, in the evening and at night. The small house has everything you need and everything is beautifully crafted. In order to get to the house you need to walk up a narrow path unless you have a scooter, but you will be well rewarded with the panoramic views, which are the very best. We in fact love the location, which is secluded but still not far from the town and great restaurants. Alfredo was always available via email or text for any questions and was very helpful like a concierge.
Bella posizione,ampia e comoda,vicinissima alla spiaggia,ospite molto disponibile e gentile.
This house is so special, the view is breathtaking and the house is very well-appointed. The location is fairly remote, so be prepared for a very steep hike. You should consider renting a scooter to get to beaches and to town, but please note that the hills are very steep and narrow on the road up to the atollo. Overall a very positive experience!
Nous avons passe' un excellent sejour, merci beaucoup!
beautiful place with an amazing 360 view
Casa molto confortevole e proprietari estremamente gentili. C'e' stato qualche imprevisto iniziale come l'aria condizionata che non funzionava ma subito risolto entro la data successiva del check in. I proprietari della casa inoltre, si sono anche offerti sia all'arrivo che alla ripartenza di accompagnarci al porto in macchina risparmiandoci la fatica di spostarsi in bus con le valige. Avevamo una cagnolina con noi che e' stata ben accolta nell'appartamento. In conclusione diamo un giudizio complessivo eccellente.
Bellissima casa immersa nel verde con panorama e tramonti meravigliosi, tutto bellissimo, speriamo di poter tornare presto!
Io e il mio ragazzo abbiamo passato una bellissima settimana a Lipari nell’alloggio di Alfredo, piccolo ma molto pulito e con tutto l'essenziale. Una posizione davvero comoda, esattamente davanti alla spiaggia, con molti bar, ristoranti e supermercati vicini a casa. Lo consiglio!
La Villetta Malvasia e' un perfetto gioiellino in stile eoliano, in una zona tranquilla a una breve passeggiata dal centro di Santa Marina Salina e dal mare; l'accoglienza e' stata perfetta, il soggiorno piacevole e rilassante, sogno ancora la doccia esterna e il giardino con alberi da frutto, da cui si gode di una bella vista sul mare, isole e Stromboli in eruzione.
Every other review perfectly encapsulates the entity that is this house, hence unbelievable experience. Nothing more to add. Check it out
Posizione strategica e vista con mare mozzafiato su Panarea e Stromboli. Ottima abitazione per posizione e comoda per due famiglie avendo tre camere e due bagni. Terrazza ampia e sfruttabile avendo il barbecue, da migliorare zona ombra.
Private, romantic paradise on a hill! Places to relax everywhere, shower outside (and inside) and wonderful 24 hour views on the Stromboli.
We had a wonderful stay on this paradise island. The property is in a tranquil setting with stunning views. It's best to rent a car or scooter as it is remote and makes it easier to get around the island. There are a handful of restaurants which are walking distance in the village and do great food. Alfredo and Alessandro were both really helpful and responsive to our messages when we were there with advice on things to do etc. We will definitely return.
The house is simple and perfect for living relaxed inside/out. We loved it and stayed for a week in the hammocks, reading and looking at the sea and the stars - going into town for shopping only (walking back up with a backpack full of bottles of wine can be hard). Would have loved to stay for several weeks more...
Nuestra estancia en Villa Hermes fue maravillosa!! la casa es fantastica: grande comoda, muy bien equipada y con la terraza con sus vistas es lo mejor de la casa. Hemos viajado bastante y siempre solemos alquilar apartamento/casa y de verdad que creemos que es de las mejores hemos estado. El trato con su propietario fue muy muy amable en todo. Ya la hemos recomendado y la recomendaremos a nuestros amigos.
GRACIAS POR TODO
semplicemente fantastico. Franco ? una persona favolosa e la vista dell'appartamento ? impareggiabile.
Alfredo was an excellent and welcoming host. He met us at the port and drove us to the apartment where a bottle.of red wine was waiting. He took the time to go through the sites of lipari and had a folder of useful information. The apartment itself was located in a quiet area very close to the centre. The studio was clean and comfortable. The air-conditioning unit was very effective and quiet. I would definitely stay again!
Cortese e disponibile, puntuale e discreto. Alfredo e' stato l'ospite che ci aspettavamo. La villetta in cui siamo stati per pochi ma memorabili giorni e' il rifugio ideale in cui passare il vostro soggiorno a Lipari, il perfetto compromesso tra natura isolata e comoda civilta'. Gli interni, recentemente ristrutturati, e soprattutto la superba vista di cui si puo' godere dal terrazzo rappresentano l'eccellente risposta alla vostra domanda: e' l'appartamento giusto per me?
Abbiamo pernottato a Lipari per una settimana, in particolare siamo stati a Canneto in un monolocale in via Filzi molto accogliente con una bella veranda, vicino al mare e alle fermate del bus. Siamo rimasti piacevolmente colpiti dall'isola in particolare da Canneto che e' una zona molto ben servita e molto comoda per spostarsi poi nelle varie spiagge.
Sicuramente un posto da consigliare per chi volesse trascorrere delle piacevoli e tranquille vacanze.
La valutazione sull'alloggio e' buona. E' un peccato che il Comune trascuri il decoro del paese in alcuni punti molto visibili.
La petite maison d'Alfredo est ideale pour un sejour a Lipari : a 10 minutes en scooter du centre, au calme et avec un belle terrasse avec vue sur la baie. Nous avons d'autant plus apprecie' ce sejour qu'il n'y avait pas de locataires dans la maison mitoyenne, et que la tranquillite' etait totale...
Anche se breve, io e il mio compagno abbiamo trascorso un piacevole soggiorno presso lo studio di Alfredo. Pulito, arredato con originalita' e dotato di tutti i comfort. E' centralissimo, a due passi dal porto di Marina Corta. Alfredo e' stato disponibile in ogni occasione. Ci e' venuto a prendere al porto di Lipari e ci ha accompagnati nel suo studio, dandoci informazioni su come esplorare l'isola e le Eolie in generale. Consigliato per chi desidera viversi il vero spirito dell'isola e degli isolani.
Ci siamo trovati molto bene con la vostra agenzia. Personale serio e cordiale e casa vacanza come descritta da foto . sicuramente ci affideremo di nuovo a voi GRAZIE
Ho soggiornato solo 1giorno ma l'appartamento era molto confortevole ,ben arredato e in centro! Non mancava niente..lo consiglio!!
Alfredo was very reliable and there to meet us off the ferry and also was on time to take us back to the ferry. The accommodation was delightful, rustic quirky and everything you need for a restful holiday. Particularly loved the hammocks!! The views were absolutely incredible, so beautiful very hard to beat. The walk up the track would not suit the very elderly or very unfit and I would suggest good trainers or walking shoes.
Semplicemente ottimo e gradevole
L'accoglienza di Alfredo e' stata perfetta e molto professionale, non abbiamo avuto il minimo disguido. La casa e' eccezionale dotata di qualsiasi confort per rendere perfetta la vacanza. La posizione e' particolare ma e' cosi' che la volevamo: lontano dal rumore, immersa nella tranquillita' dove abbiamo potuto lasciare libero il nostro piccolo di 5 anni senza che ci fosse alcun pericolo (strade, auto, traffico...). Avere un mezzo proprio o noleggiato e' sicuramente piu' comodo ma abbiamo notato che il servizio bus o taxi sono ben organizzati ed accessibili senza troppa fatica dalla casa. I tramonti, il panorama e le cenette sotto la tettoia esterna sono a dir poco eccezionali. Ringraziamo ancora Alfredo e ci scusiamo se non abbiamo potuto salutarlo personalmente alla nostra partenza.
From the beginning to the very end, Alfredo has been the perfect host. He picked us up in Lipari in his Mehari which already gave us this paradize look of the island. He spent time to show us everything in the house, but also what was around (Restaurants, excursions, Supermarket ...). He knows everyone and everything you need to do in Lipari, and the other Eolian Islands. Then he drove us back in Lipari at the Scooter store so we could have our own transportation vehicle for the 5 days. A scooter or car is necessary if you stay at Alfredo's. (there's a bus stop at 15mn walk but for 20$ a day you have the scooter : you'll save plenty of time and and enjoy the back & forth to Lipari with the view) On top of that, the house is perfect and clean (roof top with paradize view, outside shower, kitchen with everything you need, washing machine ...). Plus : 5mn riding your scooter, you will have the best beach of Lipari (ask Alfredo) We really had an amazing time and definitely recommend Alfredo's if you are staying in Lipari.
La casa e' esattamente come presentata nelle foto, spaziosa, pulita, ordinata. La posizione, letteralmente in spiaggia e' impagabile, bellissima! All'arrivo il signore molto cortese che ci ha accolto ci ha consegnato la casa un paio d'ore prima dell'orario di check-in, permettendoci di accomodarci subito, cosi come al check-out, molto gentile! L'unica nota da segnalare e' la presenza di formiche in cucina, probabilmente dovuta alla stagione! La casa e' vivamente consigliata e speriamo di poterci fare ritorno in futuro!
Alfredo's cottage is truly special place to stay - to say it's charming is an understatement! In real life it's even more beautiful than the pictures - the views are breathtaking. It was a delight to stay somewhere with so much personality - Alfredo has built this little cottage high up on a peninsular of Lipari himself and you really understand why when you arrive. There is a steep 12 minute walk up a track to get there but don't let it put you off - it's totally worth it - you feel like you're miles away from everyone else when you get there. The cottage is simple but it has everything you need - plus the outdoor shower is a stroke of genius. Alfredo was a great host - he was so helpful when our Hydrofoil back to Palermo was cancelled and helped us to get back to the mainland. We hope to come back again soon - thank you Alfredo!â€ť
Superbe studio dans ruelle charmante. Alfredo est aux petits oignons pour nous proposer des bons plans sur les differentes iles. Je recommande!!!
Alfredo let us know all the information we needed before our arrival. He was there to collect us when we arrived at the port and drove us to his place. The apartment is on a really pretty, quiet street just a few minutes walk from the centre of town. It's bigger than it looks on the photos and really charming! The bed is comfortable and the shower is amazing! Would definitely recommend!
Ha sido una estancia preciosa! Alfredo fue muy agradable con nosotras facilitandonos la estada ensenandonos donde estaban los restaurantes, bares, supermercados, etc de Canneto. La ubicacion de la casa es perfecta, ya que justo delante hay el embarcadero desde donde parten los barquitos de los tours hacia las islas. Tambien esta' cerca del bus que va hacia lipari (10min) i a la cala Pomice, supers, restaurantes y de agencias de tours. La casa es muy acogedora y tiene todo lo necesario para unas vacaciones,una agradable sorpresa con las vistas desde la terraza. Volveriamos encantadas, gracias por todo Alfredo!
Agenzia molto seria. Sono stati gli unici a trovarmi la sistemazione che desideravo.
Il Sig.Renzo e' stata una persona cortese e professionale.
Bell'appartamento, sembra piccola, ma ha tutto cio' che serve, e' vicino a Marina Corta dove partono le escursioni in barca e a 15 minunti dalla partenza degli Aliscafi.
Le Eolie sono isole stupende e molto particolari, ognuna con una sua caratteristica diversa, chi affascina con i suoi vulcani, chi con spiagge bianche di pomice e chi con il suo verde, non ci si annoia, c'e' sempre qualcosa da vedere e da fare.
La struttura Bilo Edera e' molto carina, particolare e pulita, con il terrazzo panoramico sopra Lipari, che e' una cosa mozzafiato.
Appartamento come descritto, foto realistiche, rapporto con il proprietario eccellente, tutto pulito e in perfette condizioni.
Alfredo was a very helpful, organized and caring host. He picked us up and dropped us off from the ferry. The villa has amazing views, good internet, and a few little restaurants close by
La casa e' molto carina e ha come punti forti in particolare la vista spettacolare, la posizione tranquilla e la pineta privata. Potrebbe essere un voto dieci se non fosse per l'arredo vecchio (sia quello interno che quello da giardino). Nota fortemente negativa per le sedie arrugginite della veranda. Abbiamo affittato altre case al mare meno care e piu' curate nei dettagli. Troppo alta a nostro avviso inoltre la cifra richiesta per le spese dei consumi di acqua e gas. Credo infine che si dovrebbe specificare che gli 800 metri dal mare sono intesi in linea d'aria, cosi' che non ci si aspetti di poter riuscire a andarci a piedi.
Casetta carinissima che ha tutto quello che serve per trascorrere una piacevole vacanza, la signora Maria e' sempre stata gentilissima.
La villetta e' in tipico stile eoliano e si trova in posizione panoramica e tranquilla a 10 minuti di scooter dal centro di Lipari. Tutto ci e' sembrato perfetto: la cura dei dettagli, la pulizia, la posizione e inoltre il proprietario Alfredo che ci ha accolto con simpatia e ci ha dato tutte le informazioni necessarie per visitare Lipari e le eolie! Speriamo davvero di ritornarci!!
L'appartamento a Lipari rispecchia l'isola, il soggiorno e' stato bellissimo e Alfredo e' stato gentilissimo nel venirci a prendere al porto e nell'illustrarci tutte le cose di cui avremmo potuto avere bisogno e anche grazie alle sue informazioni abbiamo avuto una splendida vacanza.
Die Wohnung in der Bucht von Canneto hat uns sehr gut gefallen, sie ist auberst gunstig gelegen und auch idealer Ausgangspunkt fur samtliche Exkursionen (zu Land und zu Wasser). Alfredo ist sehr sympatisch und zuvorkommend, er hat uns sowohl vom Hafen Lipari mit dem Auto abgeholt (10 Fahrminuten von Canneto entfernt), als auch am Abreisetag wieder zum Hafen gefuhrt. Wir haben unsere Zeit auf Lipari sehr genossen!
Diese wunderbare Hutte ist absolut empfehlenswert! Puristische Einrichtung, traumhafter Ausblick auf das Meer, die Insel und die Milchstrabe. Alfredo war stets hilfsbereit und immer zu erreichen. Wir wurden jederzeit erneut einen Urlaub dort verbringen.
What great views this place has! We spent so much of our time just relaxing in the hammocks in the shade. It's very peaceful and remote except the odd walker asking where the path is! We were planning on hiring a quad but Alfredo suggested a motorbike might be safer.. having never driven a motorbike we ended up hiring a car so we didn't have to do the long steep walk twice a day - it might have been fine but we were carrying a fair amount of food and wine each time too! Alfred was really helpful whenever we needed him - helped us arrange boat trips and came up if we had a question. A unique place to stay.
Great little place that is centrally located just off main strip. Opposite the supermarket makes it very convenient to pick up some supplies. Alfredo was very helpful, picking us up from the port and helping us with our bags to the residence. He was well equipped with information about the area.
We liked the simplicity and the uniqueness of the accommodation. It was clean, comfortable and cosy. For us, it was a delight to hear local people chatting outside or looking in if we had the front door open. All the attractions of Lipari are within 15 minutes walk, and a lot of them much closer.
Da ist einfach alles perfekt. Die Wohnung ist zwar klein aber sehr nett. Die Via Santa Anna ist eine wunderschone alte Strasse (Autofrei), alles was man braucht ist in der Umgebung zu finden. Schlusselubergabe und die Kommunikation mit Alfredo absolut unkompliziert. Zum 2-mal da gewesen!
Perfect place to stay in Canetto, Alfredo was really helpful with everything.
We had a wonderful time at Alfredo's apartment! He graciously picked us up at the ferry and gave us a ride back when we left. Upon arrival Alfredo explained the bus schedule, ATM and grocery stores, and provided a nice binder of excursions and walking tours. The apartment was as portrayed, very clean and neat. The bed was VERY comfortable and so was the couch, the space is efficiently used with a standing closet with hangers and plenty of drawer space, lovely tiled bathroom, and even the small kitchen is well organized with all that you need. We enjoyed watching several EuroCup soccer games on the TV! The advantages of this site are that it is the 3rd floor of its own building and also set back a bit from the street so it is fairly quiet, and also very private ---you will not hear neighbors through the walls like in a hotel or apartment complex. The deck was delightful and we loved watching town life and the beach from it. (Really nice to be able to walk across the street to the beach!). The air conditioning unit in the bedroom-living room was quiet and essential for this time of year, we were very comfortable at night even though the daytime temps had been in the 90s (F). Alfredo's place is an excellent value. If you are gluten free you must try the GF pizza at Da Merlo, a chewy, doughy wood-fired crust just like regular pizza! Just call ahead because they don't have the GF dough ready every day (our server at a local cafe made the reservation for us). Both Da Merlo and La Bussola restaurants always have GF pasta available, and ALL their dishes are spectacular. We found GF pasta in the local grocery store too. Il Piccolo Coffee Bar has free wifi and fantastic pastries and granitas, we were there every morning. We would definitely stay here again and I already told Alfredo we will recommend his place to friends. An awesome vacation!
We had a fantastic one week stay right on the beach! The three bedrooms are spacious and the two bathrooms are great when several people are staying (we had five adults). The apartment is exactly as pictured and we would definitely stay again! Especially to have a drink on the sunny patio overlooking the beach. Thank you Alfredo!!
A truly beautiful house on the hills of Lipari. Breathtaking view. We have slept extremely well for one week. Not a noise to be heard. Peace and quiet all around. Everything was there as described by Alfredo. The place is ideal for people that want to live surrounded by nature and isolated but still have all amenities - comfy bed, outside kitchen, two showers, nice toilet and amazing terrace. The walk uphill (10 minutes) is highly rewarded by the view. We had an amazing time and were sad to leave this beautiful house and island. My favourite part of the house was the backyard with a stunning view over the island of Vulcano. Note: the walk uphill requires some physical fitness and the nature around means that you'll be in contact with many insects. My boyfriend and I are urban residents and not used to this but we adapted to this with no problem!
All was great! Francesco who welcomed and took care of us on behalf of Alfredo was tremendous and helpful host. All much appreciated. Would highly recommend.
Bilocale comodo e accogliente con veranda/terrazza buona ospitalita' per famiglia con 2 bambini felicemente adattatisi al letto a castello. La cucina con due fuochi e frigo di ridotte dimensioni soddisfa le esigenze di base. Prenotato il set aggiuntivo di biancheria (cucina/letto/bagno) pagato separatamente. All'arrivo Giuseppe (Pippo) ci ha ricevuti e accompagnati fino a casa comodamente a piedi dal molo. Ci ha lasciato i suoi riferimenti per ogni successiva necessita'. Vista sulla spiaggia di Scari, la zona di Stromboli dove hanno sede le attivita' logistiche del piccolo centro: necessario non essere ipersensibili ai rumori mattutini (dalle 6:30) anche se proporzionati. Dall'abitazione si raggiunge rapidamente a piedi la zona dei negozi, ristoranti, bar etc. (San Vincenzo). Nel complesso la soluzione ci ha soddisfatto e qualche difetto e' compensato da una maggiore economicita' se raffrontata con le altre offerte disponibili sullâ€™isola
Il posto e' incantevole, dalla terrazza si vedono Panarea e Stromboli, la casa e' grande e comoda, Alfredo e sua moglie carini, disponibili e discreti. Tutto ok.
Dieses Haus bietet wirklich die einmalige Gelegenheit direkt an einem belebten, aber nicht lastigen Strand zu leben. Die Eingewohnung in das toll ausgestattete Haus hat nur ein paar Minuten gedauert. Sehr sympathische Location fur den perfekten Familienurlaub!
Great house, great location. Everything was just perfect. Also the host was francesco was very friendly and helpfull. Would like to come back. Best wishes.
Alfredo si e' mostrato fin da subito gentile e disponibile, anche ad esempio nel dare indicazioni e consigli su cosa fare e vedere in queste 7 meraviglie che sono le isole Eolie. Al contempo si e' dimostrato anche molto discreto pur abitando nell'appartamento di fianco a quello che abbiamo occupato. L'appartamento e' esattamente come descritto: spartano, essenziale ma decisamente accogliente. A pochissimi passi dalla spiaggia di Canneto, punto di forza assoluto e' la bella terrazza da cui si gode del bellissimo mare delle Eolie, con Panarea e Stromboli sullo sfondo. In conclusione siamo stati benissimo, e tutto quel blu ci manca gia' da morire. Grazie Alfredo!
The host was very welcoming, he even picked us up from the port in Lipari. He was very helpful, provided us with all of the useful info, including activities in the islands around. the neighborhood was great, just in the center piazza of Canneto.
Had a wonderful stay at this wonderful house. Highly recommended.
Alfredo e' stato molto gentile e disponibile. L'appartamento e' piccolo ma funzionale, pulito, in ottima posizione centrale comodo a tutto, vicino al porto di Marina Corta da cui ci si imbarca per le escursioni. Lo consiglio.
Io e la mia famiglia siamo stati benissimo in questa casa. E' un posto bellissimo, per il panorama, i tramonti e il silenzio. Non e' cosi' lontano da Lipari centro, bisogna secondo me noleggiare un motorino (o un auto ma in alta stagione si gira male a Lipari) per goderselo appieno. Alfredo ci e' venuto a prendere al porto come da accordi, e' stato gentile, facilmente contattabile e disponibile. Una vacanza bellissima!
direi la posizione del graziosissimo terrazzo dal quale si gode una bellissima vista sula spiaggia e sul mare fino a Panarea. La posizione del cucinotto veramente strategica e geniale che ha permesso di gustarsi ottime colazioni, aperitivi e cene...
Accoglienza ottima! Tutto perfetto, alloggio pulito, corrispondente alla descrizione e in ottima posizione. Sicuramente ritorneremo!
Alfredo was beyond great. He picked us up at the port and drove us to the cottage as well as gave lots of info and discounts on places in town. There is a rugged, steep 15min hike up from the road to the cottage so bring good shoes. And I recommend bug spray. The views can not be beaten and the quiet is refreshing. We loved the outdoor kitchen and shower and even how his dog would sometimes visit. If you are looking for serene bliss, this is it.
La camera con angolo cottura prenotata corrispondeva esattamente alle foto presenti nel sito. Per ogni informazione si puo' contattare l'agenzia ed una volta effettuato il pagamento si riceve direttamente il voucher con il numero del proprietario (il quale e' stato disponibilissimo e sempre reperibile). Unica pecca, nel mio caso, la pulizia non molto accurata delle stoviglie ed i sanitari non perfettamente funzionanti (il bidet in particolare ma avendo la doccia non ci ha causato grossi problemi); di questo pero' non mi sono lamentata con il proprietario perche' vista la sua gentilezza e disponibilita', mea culpa, non mi sono proprio osata! Giudizio complessivo comunque molto positivo, utilizzero' sicuramente la vucanoconsult se tornero' a visitare le Eolie!
Siamo stati molto bene. Il sig. Alfredo e' stato molto cortese e ha fatto di piu' del dovuto. La casa e' molto carina. La posizione e' buona. I vicini un po meno.
We just had a wonderful, amazing week at this beautiful slice of heaven situated in the most magnificent setting you could imagine. The views of the ocean and volcanoes are amazing. The garden is filled with beautiful wild flowers. We loved relaxing in the hammocks in the morning and evening. The outdoor shower is unforgettable. Alfredo is a terrific host - we arrived late on the boat from Naples and he had already purchased some things for us to eat as the supermarkets were closed. He was super responsive and very friendly. We really enjoyed meeting him. The place is about a 2 mile hike from the town and it can be a bit steep but we have to say that we absolutely loved doing this hike as it has such beautiful views and it is so lovely to get exercise after sitting in the hammocks... The Aeolian Islands are really worth visiting as there are so many hikes you can do on each of the islands including hiking to volcanoes. Really an amazing mix of relaxing and hiking makes the perfect holiday. We also rented a scooter to tour the island for a couple of days and that was lots of fun. All in all we feel very lucky to have been able to experience a week in this amazing place!
We had an amazing time in this beautiful house. I like the special atmosphere of the ancien house completly renovated in 2008. Everything was super clean. You have a lot of space, a great outdoor-shower, everything in the kitchen, wifi, tv (no need for it) big terrace and the two roof terrace and the amazing view. Alfredo is a friedly and helpful host and IÂ´m glad that he saves this cozy house at this special place! The best place to have a peaceful accommodation on lipari! We will certainly stay there again !
This place is amazing. Like all the other reviews said, the photos don't do it justice. We stayed for 5 days and loved every minute. Alfredo is a great guy. He really went out of his way to make us feel comfortable. Would love to go back someday!
Ottima accoglienza da parte di Alfredo... Una bravissima persona, disponibile in tutto! Ci ritornerei volentieri... Il posto e' ottimo... Vicino al corso principale e al porto di Marina Corta.
Alfredo war ein super Gastgeber. Wir wurden abgeholt und bei Fragen konnten wir ihn jederzeit kontaktieren. Im Haus war alles vorhanden und es war sehr gemutlich eingerichtet. Die Lage des Hauses ist traumhaft, ruhig und der Blick wunderschon. Wir hatten eine wunderbare Zeit und empfehlen das Haus sehr.

Abbiamo passato 4 bei giorni presso l'appartamentino! Che era completo di tutto, pulito e molto curato! Alfredo disponibile per ogni cosa anche per il trasporto con le valigie dagli aliscafi all'appartamento e viceversa!
Sehr schones, gut eingerichtetes Appartment. Fur uns als 5 kopfige Familie gut geeignet. Zentral in dem kleinen Ort, grad bei der Piazza. Einmalige Dachterasse mit Sicht aufs Meer, die Ortschaft und weitere Vulkaninseln. Alfredo ist ein netter Typ, der alles sehr professionell und schnell abwickelt. Fur zur Wohnung mussen einige Treppenstufen uberwunden werden. Die Nachbarn waren wirklich sehr sehr laut (Schreien). Wir haben dies als authentisches italienisches Erlebnis aufgenommen, doch fur larmempfindliche Personen wirds schwierig. Bei uns hats mit der wlan verbindung leider nicht geklappt.
Acogedora casa en esplendida ubicacion con maravillosas vistas de las islas y el mar. Tranquilidad total y gran belleza de los atardeceres. La casa esta' completamente equipada con todo lo necesario. Fantastica experiencia.
Villetta malvasia e' estremamente graziosa, situata in una zona tranquilla e facilmente raggiungibile anche a piedi (con un po' di salite) dal centro di Santa Marina e ben collegata al resto dell'isola perche' molto vicina all'unica circonvallazione. Arredata con ottimo gusto, e' fresca e caratteristica (come le case di un tempo, ha la cucina e il bagno esterni, che contribuiscono a rendere l'esperienza ancor piu' particolare) ed e' impreziosita da un delizioso giardino, di uso privato, con un bell'albero di limoni, generosissimo in estate. Soggiorno vivamente consigliato per chi e' alla ricerca di un piccolo angolo di paradiso, quieto e silenzioso, senza eccessive esigenze di confort e dotato di un minimo spirito di adattamento, rilassato e vacanziero.
Panorama esclusivo sulle Eolie, che ampiamente ricompensa la scomodita' della posizione e il suo raggiungimento. Locale ampio e comodo.
Superbe endroit tranquille pour decouvrir un plaisir rare de l'existence le "Farniente", entre la mer et le ciel Et Alfredo est un hote a l'ecoute et prevenant
Alles hat gut geklappt und es war wie beschrieben im Inserat. Die Lage des Hauses ist absolut top. Die Raumaufteilung im Haus (4 Schlafzimmer mit je 2 Betten, 2 Nasszellen, geraumiges Wohnzimmer und Terrasse) ist sehr praktisch. Der Hauswart ging unkompliziert auf unsere Wunsche ein betreffend Ankunfts- und Abfahrtszeiten. Einzig als es in der Nacht heftig regnete, war das Wasser von der Strasse her mit allem Dreck/Schlamm auf der einen Seite durch den Garten des Hauses geflossen. Zum Gluck war am Folgetag wieder schones Wetter und das Zeug konnte trocknen. Von den Ameisen in der Kuche hatten wir schon gewusst. Es war auch nicht weiter schlimm, die Anzahl und ihre ortliche Ausbreitung hielt sich in engen Grenzen. Alles in allem ein prima Ferienhaus!
I had an excellent time at Atollo, where I stayed for one week. I loved the remoteness of the place and the beautiful views and spend most of the time up on the hill, meditating, reading and photographing the amazing sky and Milky Way at night. I agree with the others that the house and location is even more beautiful than expected and everything is done with love and care. And yes, the outside shower is gorgeous. I didnâ€™t rent a scooter or car but walked into town for groceries or a trip to the other islands and then took a taxi back up to the parking place from where it takes 12 minutes walking to get to the house. Alfredo has also been a truly wonderful host. He picked me up and brought me back to the ferry and even helped me to bring up groceries on my first day. If you are pondering, go and visit this place, you will love it. Thank you again Alfredo and I hope I can soon visit your little paradise again.
We had the most amazing time in Alfredo's house. The views were stunning and there is a lovely little kitchen to cook food in. Scooters are very cheap to rent and it only takes about 10 minutes to get down to the port area. Alfredo even picked us up at the port and drove all our bags up to he house and also brought them back down when we were leaving. AMAZING AND BRILLIANT. I will remember this place forever!â€ť
Short after our arrival at Lipari Alfredo we've been picked up by Alfredo and guided to this magic place in the western part of Lipari. He kindly introduces us in the features of the apartment and provided us with some very helpful advice regarding adventure tours to Stromboli and several other highlights of the Eolian Islands. The apartment is very well equipped, quiet an cosy. Watching the sunset from the roof top is just breathtaking and everything you need is close by, you'll find very good restaurants in less than 10 Minutes walking distance. It is the perfect place for relaxing holidays. We very much appreciated our stay and would love to come back sometime. Thanks for everything, Alfredo!
Nous avons ete' accueillis avec beaucoup de gentillesse. L'appartement est clair, propre, approprie' pour un sejour a' deux et frais (courants d'air ou clim !), la terrasse, un poste d'observation sans pareil. Le cote' spartiate de l'equipement ne nous a pas incommodes.
Perfect and reasonably priced apartment for 6, the roof terrace is a nice extra, with beautiful view of Stromboli. Bus stop at the entrtance, frequent services to/from Lipari port, 6 journey ticket for 7 euros. We will be back.
Notre sejour s'est bien passe' dans ce petit appartement au bord de l'eau. La terasse est belle et donne sur la mer. Alfredo etait tres gentil, est venu nous chercher au ferry et nous a meme rendu service avec sa machine a' laver. Les seuls inconvenients ont ete' que la wifi n'a quasiment jamais marche', et que la cuisine est tres petite pour un long sejour.
Very nice small house with everythiing you need. The view is beautiful and it is a perfect place to relax. Alfredi is very friendly, he even came to pick us up at the port. I can recommend it to anyone.
We really enjoyed our stay in San Vito Lo Capo. The house was spacious and clean, with ample room for two families and a well-equipped kitchen. The location is ideal, with direct access on to the beach. It is also well placed in relation to the centre of San Vito: far enough away to feel peaceful, but only a short walk to the shops and restaurants. We hope to return soon.
Excellent location and nice appartment; kitchen well equipped. We arrived late and therefore really appreciated that Alfredo came to pick us up at the port. The view from the terrace is just amazing. We enjoyed our stay. Thank you.
Cette maison est incroyable. Devant l'une des plus belles plages du nord de la Sicile et il n'y a qu'un portail entre la maison et la plage. Parfait avec des enfants :) DĂ©jeunez les pieds dans l'eau.
Alfredo collected us from the boat and returned us at the end of our trip, helping us with our luggage at either end. The house has really good views over Lipari, the coastline and towards Stromboli. It's ok walking down the path into town but getting back up is a struggle especially with shopping. The buses were running a 'winter' service when we were there and the last bus back was at 2.00pm - to coincide with the school children. Taxis back cost 15E during the day and car hire is 25E/day. The house is as described but what wasn't clear too us was that from one of the double rooms you have to go outside to get back in to the shower room - interesting at night! The kitchen is quite small - short of work surface for cooking a proper meal but it's otherwise fairly well equipped. It's a really good house for the summer with acres of north-facing covered terrace - but if the weather is chilly the indoor space is limited. It's great to bbq on a warm evening, sit on the terrace and look at the view. Lipari is a good town to explore and trips to Vulcan are a great experience. There is some good walking on the island with good coastal scenery. There is a good house-book provided with lots of information about the local area. Towels are not provided but there is a vast range of toiletries in case you've forgotten anything.
Alfredo very kindly picked us up from the ferry to take us to his flat in Canetto. He speaks great English and told us where yo eat and what we could do. Our stay was very peaceful and we toured the island on a scooter. Alfredo is kind and respectful of your privacy.
We had a great time in this very cute studio. The place is in the historic center of Lipari, well located. The studio was perfect for us two for 5 days, we just did everything by walk. The place is clean and well furnished too. I highly recommend this studio for a couple. Our host was very helpful.
Alfredo e' stato molto gentile e disponibile. La sua casa e' un vero paradiso. E' stata una settimana stupenda.
Great location!!! Pollara is the most charming neighborhood and has the best beach and amazing sunset in Salina Island!! The house is big and clean. The owner, Miss Norina, is a lovely and very kind Italian lady. I strongly recommend her house.
Wow. Alfredo's atollo is the stuff of dreams. My husband and I spent 5 days here on vacation in August and couldn't have been happier. We knew August could be intense with tourists and while we wanted a gorgeous, peaceful place we also wanted to be close to restaurants and people. Atollo was the perfect mix. The house has, likely, the best view on the entire island. Alfredo has done an elegant job of designing the cottage too, so it is simple with exactly everything you need. A few suggestions: - leave some time to just relax in hammocks, read and enjoy the truly spectacular view, take in what a special place you are in; - it's an invigorating 8 minute hike up from Alfredo's house but for anyone with mobility issues might have a challenge; - bring some ear plugs from the airplane, there was a party boat only one night which we could hear from bed and it was a blessing to have ear plugs on me; - definitely recommend renting scooters -- we spend a few hours touring the island and it was terrific to head from Canetto up to Aquacalda; - make sure to bring water shoes for the beaches on Lipari; - we went to all the recommended restaurants but Pulera was a stand-out, one of the most special culinary experiences we've ever had (and so much more relaxed than Filipino). We will definitely be back! THANK YOU ALFREDO!
Alfredo is a great host and at the end of the phone if you have any queries. He's got a very special spot with Atollo, unlike anything else on the island. If you're looking for peace and quiet but access to Lipari town and the beach... this is for you
Super sejour chez Alfredo, la maison est atipypique, tres agreable terrasse avec une vue magnifique sur l'ile, on ne s'en lasse pas. Logement spacieux avec tout les equipements necessaires. Nous avions loue' des scooters ce qui nous a permis de nous rendre plus facilement dans le centre, sinon il y a un petit chemin (assez pentu) a' cote' de la maison.
Large rooms, fine verandah and superb view. But the apartment turned out to be so high up in the hills that a motor vehicle is absolutely necessary. We found it a real chore to be asked to bring our own bedlinen across half of Europe by plane. The place lacks some very basic amenities such as a washing machine and many common kitchen implements. All in all the place (though not unpleasant) is like an empty shell where it is obvious that nobody has ever lived. But in many ways it is quite suitable for a holiday. And the hosts were nice.
Bon appartement, terrasse avec vue sur la mer et emplacement ideal pour visiter Lipari.
Alfredo communicated via sms before we arrived and met us at the ferry terminal for the short drive to the apartment. The apartment itself is small but fine for two people (the shower is very small and could be problematic for taller / larger guests) and the whole apartment was very clean, nicely decorated and with good facilities (TV, wi-fi etc) and with a useful folder with information on the islands, hikes, places to visit. There is a supermarket directly opposite and another on the main street towards the ferry terminal and the apartment is only 2-3 minutes walk from the main pedestrianised tourist street. We did have a couple of times when the power went out (for instance if running aircon and using the electric stove at the same time), Alfredo had mentioned it when we arrived and explained where the fuse box was (downstairs in the basement), no real problem however maybe providing a torch in case the power goes out at night would be useful to save fumbling around in the dark trying to find mobile phones! Overall we were very happy with our stay and would recommend Alfredo's apartment to anyone visiting Lipari - thanks Alfredo!
Joli studio dans un coin calme de Lipari. Agreable. Dommage de n'avoir pas pu avoir plus de contacts avec Alfredo et il manquait une poubelle !
La casetta era tenuta bene ed era come mostrata dalle foto. la posizione eccezionale. 15 minuti dal porto. La cosa piu' bella il terrazzino, minimalista ma fantastico nella sua essenzialita' e vista
Tres beau sejour dans ce petit coin de paradis. La terrasse, le hamac, la vue, le calme. Alfredo est tres agreable, serviable et disponible a' tout instant, il est venu nous chercher sur le quai et nous a ramene' le jour du depart. Merci encore! On recommande la location d'un scooter ou d'une petite voiture pour se simplifier les deplacements.
Bella casa, spaziosa con bella terrazza e grande giardino...con ingresso diretto alla spiaggia...veramente stupenda... Le persone che ci hanno accolto veramente gentili ed ospitali e' molto comprensivi su alcune richieste... Grazie
Alfredo e' molto disponibile e ci ha dato subito le indicazioni giuste. La casa e' comoda e subito in centro
L' appartamento e' piccolo ma ottimo per una coppia. Si trova in posizione strategica, a due minuti dal corso principale, dai servizi e dalle principali attrazioni della citta'. Alfredo e' disponibilissimo e al nostro arrivo oltre a venirci a prendere al porto e ad accompagnarci in macchina all'appartamento ci ha fornito delle preziose informazioni per farci trascorrere al meglio il nostro soggiorno.
La casa del Signor Alfredo e' piccola (una sola stanza con letto e angolo cottura + un bagno) ma confortevole e soprattutto posizionata benissimo (a due passi dalla via principale). E' presente tutto il necessario per la cucina e c'e' anche una piccola lavatrice. Unico difetto: manca il Wi-Fi.
Great terrasse on the roof, the flat was well located, closed to the Town, and quiet. The flat is only one room, with n'es and kitschen in. Only bathroom separated.
Sejour parfait, les photos correspondent a' la realite', un vrai petit paradis.Il y a tout ce qu'il faut pour se sentir bien, Alfredo nous a tres bien accueilli et etait disponible si besoin. Nous avons passe' pendant ces 15 jours d'excellentes vacances.
Logement correspondant bien aux photos. Tres fonctionnel (WiFi, cuisine, clim, frigo...). Seul points negatifs: pas de serviettes de bain et pas de sac poubelles. Localisation du logement ideal: 5 min a' pieds de la rue principale, et situe' en face d une supermarche' ! Alfredo a' ete' tres disponible pendant notre sejour, donne de bons conseils et parle' francais!
The house is exactly like the description. The walk up to the house is heavy (when getting groceries in Lipari town) but the lovely house and stunning views are totally worth it. It was great to live so secluded for a few days on top of the hill, with the outside shower, bath and kitchen. Be prepared for lots of musquito's!
Le logement est parfait et la vue de la terrasse est exceptionnelle.
Alfredo le proprietaire est tres sympathique et on le remercie encore pour ses conseils pour les excursions de Stromboli et de Vulcano, de plus Alfredo parle tres bien le francais.
Vehicule indispensable voiture ou scooter.
Location molto bella, a due passi dalla spiaggia e poco distante dai servizi dell'isola (supermercato, alimentari, bar, pizzeria... etc e' tutto a 300 mt.) In mia opinione la casa adatta a due persone, le altre due dormono nella (piccola) cucina, quindi potrebbero avere difficolta'. Il che la rende un prodotto piuttosto caro. Il patio esterno e' molto gradevole e fresco, il che unito al prato di fronte e alla vista del mare a 200 mt... fa quasi passare la voglia di uscire di casa. Il contatto diretto sull'isola che gestisce l'appartamento e' gentilissimo e sempre a disposizione.
Alfredo e' stato gentilissimo e puntuale. La casa era accogliente, in una posizione comoda per qualsiasi attivita' e la permanenza e' stata perfetta. Lo consiglio veramente a tutti.
We had a fantastic experience at Alfredo's B and B. He was kind enough to pick us up from the port and drop us off there at the end of our stay. He also provided lots of information about things to do in the Eiolian islands. The apartment was very clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. An added bonus was a stunning tiled picture of Stromboli that vittually covered an entire wall.
Alfredo was extremly nice with us. He came to the harbour to pick us up and gave us a lift to the flat.
Appena arrivati a marina corta siamo stati accolti da un operatore dell'agenzia che ci ha aiutati con i bagagli e mostrato la casa. La casa e' ubicata in un' ottima posizione. Dispone di un bellissimo terrazzo di copertura panoramico. E' vicina ad una piccolissima spiaggetta nota col nome di Porto delle Genti che, data la vicinanza, puĂ˛ essere comoda per un bagno veloce.
Location perfetta, per posizione e prezzo.
Siamo stati veramente bene.
Wir hatten eine wunderschone entspannte Woche im Haus von Alfredo. Die Aussicht auf das Meer und die Vulkane ist atemberaubend. Das Haus hat eine schone Atmosphare, ist sauber und gut ausgestattet mit allem was man im Alltag benotigt. Alfredo hat uns abends noch vom Hafen abgeholt, obwohl die Fahre verspatet war. Er hat uns angeboten, zum Supermarkt zu fahren, Wasser hatte er schon besorgt und auch an sonst alles gedacht. Er hat uns einige Tipps gegeben, was man unternehmen kann und uns im Haus alles erklart. Das Haus iegt weit oben am Berg, wer nicht gerne wandert, sollte sich einen Scooter mieten. Es fahren aber auch mehrmals taglich Busse nach Lipari und uber die Insel, wir sind damit gut zurecht gekommen. In Pianoconte sind Supermarkt und Restaurants fublaufig gut zu erreichen. Wer eine entspannte Zeit in naturnaher Umgebung verbringen mochte, ist hier genau richtig.
Really great place on the top of the mountain with amazing views and pretty much no other people around (there is a track path nearby, but it's lower than the house so you don't get to see anyone, maybe occasionally hear some voices here and there). Perfect to escape from city life with just crickets, lizards and bird sounds around you. Alfredo was very helpful and accommodating, great advise and suggestions on things to do and places to visit. Definitely would like to return in future for a longer period of time. It would help if you can drive a scooter or quad car (you can rent those on the island itself) as it is quite a hike up the mountain otherwise.
Beautiful place, the photos don't do it justice. Amazing views and nice cosy house. Tough if you're walking but worth it. Alfredo was very helpful in picking us up and dropping us at the port. Would stay again.
Nice place and clean room, but we didn't see much Alfredo.
Extraordinary views - just like the pictures (if not better) accompanied by delicious sunsets. Me and my partner found House Particular a great base to explore Lipari and the Aeolian islands, even without a car or scooters (which would have definitely made getting 'round the island much easier, but sadly wasn't an option for us) It is located close enough to the local bus service to/from town, but a small supermarket and a few superb restaurants are only a stone's throw away just at Pianoconte. We had a few excellent take-away pizzas and dined at Marisa's (must try their desserts!). Alfredo picked us up from the port, before which we equipped ourselves with food and wine from a nearby supermarket at the harbour and primarily self catered; then kindly dropped us back to the port at the end of our trip. Good to check with the host if you need to pick up any extra coffee, water, oil or coal (only some of which was provided). Upon Alfredonâ€™s recommendation we walked to the gorgeous beach. It's a steep climb, but it was totally worth it! We went quite a few times. The location is very quiet and secluded, the water is crystal clear and the pebbled beach is an unusual palette of purples, blues and reds. The house itself is beautiful, super clean and well equipped. The outdoor shower is a great treat in the morning! Alfredo was very easy to communicate to and helped us with anything we needed (including getting lost on our way to the beach for the first time!). As well as transferring us from the port and back he have us plenty of tips and recommendations. Thank you Alfredo!
Perfect house on a beautiful location, we loved it!
Maison idealement situe' en front de mer. Les recents travaux de la terrasse ouvrent encore plus la vue sur les eaux turquoises... mais laissent egalement entrer le vent du large sur la terrasse... et il a beaucoup souffle' cette semaine de Paques ! Un peu trop tot dans la saison pour profiter au maximum des prestations de la maison d'Alfredo, mais j'imagine que l'ete', c'est l'ideal !
Alfredo's house on the island of Lipari is a very special place. I stayed for four weeks by myself and was sorry to leave. First and foremost it must be said that the location is outstanding. The house literally sits alone on top of a hill that has been reserved for nature and from the yard and also inside the house (thanks to well placed windows) you can see endless sea and incredibly, Stromboli, Panarea, Vulcano and Mt. Etna. You are way up in the sky so birds like hawks fly by at full speed and you can hear their wings. While the spot has a definite feeling of solitude, it is also well connected. The wifi is unlimited, fast and reliable which is rare on the Aeolian Islands. Town is actually close by and has every convenience. There is a 5 minute hike to the road which goes up the hill, but from there you can either walk or drive to town. I recommend driving because like all of the eolian islands, there are lots of hills. Alfredo is kind and helpful. He and his family live just down the side of the hill from the rental which gives you a feeling of security. He answered my questions when ever I had them and was very respectful of privacy always scheduling before arriving with water delivery, etc. I highly recommend this home!
I can only confirm everything that has already been said in the previos comments. This nice cottage in Monte Rosa is just a perfect hide away for people who love nature and want to spend some days in a spectacular place with gorgeous views, sunrise and sunsets, tranquility, time to relax and dolce far niente, and just enjoy the beauty of this place. Alfredo was a perfect host and always at our disposal if we needed something. I can highly recommend this location and will definitely come back! Grazie mille Alfredo!
We had a great time in Alfredo's home. It has a beautiful location above Lipari town with views out over Stromboli in the distance. The height gives it a refreshing breeze through the day, and the terrace is shady and well equipped. We particularly liked lounging in the Hammocks with books and a cool glass of wine. My partner did a bit of sun worshipping on the roof. The property is however some distance from town. There is a steep path down hill to the centre of town, but you would need to be pretty fit to clamber back up! The taxis in Lipari are to be avoided - very expensive and we had a particularly unpleasant experience with one, who got us lost, and then demanded 40 euros with menaces (including a fist in my face). A car is essential for this property, and Alfredo was able to negotiate a modest discount at the pit stop hire place in town. They were charming and helpful. I would use them again. The house is basic, but clean and comfortable. The terraced garden is quite steep; which might be an issue if you come out with a free-range toddler. The island is beautiful with lovely views, rocky beaches and restaurants. Boat trips to the surrounding islands and to Stromboli, are delightful and filled a happy week, following the family wedding we originally came out for.
Wir waren als Familie zu viert in Alfredo's Haus und haben die Zeit genossen! Aufgrund von Anreiseproblemen kamen wir todmude mit der letzten Fahre und haben uns sehr gefreut, dass Alfredo uns spontan abholte! Der Empfang war sehr nett und alles hat gepasst. Die Einrichtung hat uns ebenfalls gefallen. Sehr positiv: WLAN und Klimaanlage und genug heibes Wasser fur 4x hintereinander duschen! Due Treppe zur sehr schonen Dachterrasse ist allerdings eine Sache fur sich. Ach ja: die Nachbarschaft ist durchaus temperamentvoll - wir haben uns sehr amusiert. Die Lage ist prima: abseits vom Touri-Trubel, Bushaltestelle vor dem Haus, recht nah zur schonen Spiaggia Bianca und auch sonst alles da, was der Mensch so braucht.. Danke Alfredo!
The Atollo house on Monte Rosa is probably one of the best kept secrets of Airbnb. Houses like these are what makes Airbnb fantastic. To be able to gain access to such a place like Alfredos house on the hill overlooking the active vulcano Stromboli in the distance is nothing short of breath taking. The best way to get to and from the house is to rent a scooter/motorino and drive up to the end of the road. From there you have to walk for 8-10 minutes. The house is very secluded and in the beginning of June you are basically alone with the horizon as your closest neighbour. We can highly recommend this stay!
Die Lage ist sehr gut in der Nahe vom Porto Marina Corta und dem kleinen Badestrand Porto delle genti gelegen. Bei Bruno kann man um die Ecke einen Motorroller oder Fahrrad preiswert mieten und in 3 kleinen Supermarkten gutes zum Essen und Trinken kaufen.
nice and easy place
We stayed here for 5 days and it was a really great experience. The home was near everything and had a great private outside area. Super friendly and kind host that picked us up at the harbor and drove us back again on the departing day.
Alfredo is a very nice and helpful host. He came to the harbor to meet me and helped me a lot providing information about the neighborhood. The flat is located in the center, just 3 minutes by walk from the harbor. Although its small, but is quite convenient. Thank you very much Alfredo
Als Alleinreisender mag ich sehr dieses Haus. Fur mich alles perfekt
Sono stato benissimo nella casa di Alfredo. Splendida la vista su golfo di Canneto. La terrazza con la vista sulla spiaggia era come essere a casa di Montalbano. Alfredo e sua moglie sono stati un host sempre disponibile per ogni nostra richiesta. Perfetto linsieme di stare nella natura ed avere tutti i servizi offerti dal villaggio di Canneto. Torneremo con piacere
Many thanks for a superb stay in your lovely house! Staffan & Elin
Am fantastischsten sind Alleinlage, Ausblicke, Aubendusche, Stille...
Eccellente posizione direttamente sulla spiaggia di Canneto, godibilissima balconata con paesaggio incantevole sulle altre isole, appartamento con grandi spazi e stanze da letto attrezzate con ventilatore. Unica pecca, che non dipende dalla struttura: il traffico sulla strada sottostante che in certi momenti e' davvero troppo intenso e disturba nelle ore notturne.
Si vous aimez etre au calme, au milieu de la nature, la vue sur la mer, les couchers de soleil, la meditation, l'introspection, bref si le bonheur ne vous fait pas peur...vous etes au bon endroit.
It was e great pleasure to stay in Canneto at Alfredo's place. It's a lovely little appartment, perfect to stay with two persons. It. The beach and the sea are right in front of you. From Canneto it's very easy to go anywhere, and after visiting other places ans islands very nice to return. We'd love to come back here!
We very much enjoyed our stay at the villa. Great place for people who enjoy a great view and simple living. No frills but beautiful location. The steps would be a challenge for anyone with limited fitness. We had an 8 month old with us and that was sometimes a challenge (hard surfaces and small steps in the house). Overall we would recommend the villa for a very relaxing stay
Casa piccola, ma accogliente ed equipaggiata con anche Wi-Fi ed aria condizionata. Posizione strategica nel centro di Lipari. Nessun intoppo, assolutamente consigliata
La casa dove abbiamo alloggiato consiste nella meta' della grande casa abitata dalla signora Norina e dalla sua famiglia. La parte affittata agli ospiti e' autonoma e divisa ma comunque adiacente a quella della famiglia di Norina (la camera da letto affaccia su un patio comune, e dunque si puo' sentire a volte qualche rumore specialmente al mattino, ma nulla di proibitivo! la privacy c'e' ma naturalmente e' ridotta rispetto all'essere completamente soli ). Le stanze sono grandi, pulite, spartane e ariose. C'e' un patio autonomo per gli ospiti circondato da fichi mandorli e piante di cappero con un grande tavolo per mangiare, dove si possono ammirare tramonti sul mare spettacolari e notti stellate. La casa si trova nella zona di Pollara, la piu' selvaggia di salina, a 15 minuti a piedi dalla spiaggia di Pollara ( 5 in macchina/motorino al massimo). La signora Norina e' stata sempre disponibile e gentile. Consiglio di portare il diffusore di vape per le zanzare per dormire bene, per noi ha funzionato. Complessivamente consigliato!
Cet endroit est merveilleux. La vue est superbe et le calme regne. Logement typique de l'ile, tres propre et accessible plutot en scooter (en voiture il faut se garer un peu plus loin et finir a' pied)
Alfredo is a fantastic host, he is available to help with anything you need. The house is perfect for guests looking for seclusion, peace and quiet. It is an amazing location and any photos will not do it justice. The outdoor shower is an amazing suprise. You have a fantastic view of the other Aoelian Islands and I would advise that you visit Stromboli, we were lucky enough to see large magma eruptions. It is nice also to rent a car/scooter to see the whole island. The trek from the car park up is not too bad and was needed after all the good food and wine.
Le cottage d'Alfredo offre un panorama magique sur Lipari et les iles environnantes.Le logement est tres simple mais tres fonctionnel et possede tous les equipements necessaires pour un sejour au calme en pleine nature! L'acces peut etre un frein pour certains qui n'aiment pas marcher (grimper ;-) environ 8min de marche apres le parking.Mais l'effort en vaut la peine! Et en plus Alfredo est tres sympa et disponible!
Casa molto carina. Ambiente familiare, molto curato e silenzioso. La veranda in stile eoliano e' davvero perfetta per le colazioni in perfetto relax o per le sere stellate dopo cena. Abbiamo particolarmente apprezzato la terrazza con i lettini con vista panoramica su Alicudi e Filicudi. Grazie di cuore ad Alessandro per i consigli e per la disponibilita' nei trasferimenti di andata e ritorno tra porto ed abitazione. Grazie anche ai suoi gentilissimi genitori per i dolci ed i fichi d'india
Renzo e' stato puntuale e disponibile. La casa e' carina, pulita e ben attrezzata anche per cucinare e stare all'esterno, come si vede in foto. ln agosto e' un po' calda ma con il condizionatore si dorme bene. Consigliato!
The climb up to the house is steep and uneven in places but once you are up the house it is incredibly isolated and the views are stunning, on one side Canneto, Panarea, and Stromboli, on the other Vulcano, Sicily, Etna and even Calabria on clear days. Alfredo is a great host and will assist with moving luggage and supplies up to the house on his quad bike. The house is very well equipped so you can remain at the house in the peaceful location or you can go into the lively town of Lipari where there are great restaurants, interesting historical sights and a huge selection of boat trips to local beaches and other islands. We had a car so we could park at the base of the track, otherwise the walk back from town is a bit of a work out. We will always remember our time on the beautiful terrace of this house cooking and eating the wonderful local produce and contemplating the view.
Great place. Alfredo was very nice to take us to and from the ferry! Loved the farm house!
Das Haus ist traumhaft gelegen und mit allem ausgestattet, was man fur einen ruhigen und simple. Aufenthalt nur wunschen kann. Herrliche Landschaft und herrlicher Blick!! Stadt und Geschafte in 20-30min Laufweite. Alfredo ist ein supet Gastgeber, schnelle und einfache Kommunikation, ausserdem hat er uns von der Fahre abgeholt, ist mit uns zum Supermarkt gefahren und hat uns am Ende des Aufenthalts auch wieder zur Fahre gebracht. Unbedingt empfehlenswert!
Vista spettacolare! Alfredo e' stato gentilissimo, ci ha dato tanti consigli ed e' stato sempre disponibile. Da consigliare!
Alfredo's place is a dream. Beautifully located, high on the hill overlooking 270+ degree views of the island/ports/beaches/ocean. He has thought of everything you may need for you stay, so that it is comfortable and relaxing. He was very helpful when we asked questions and kind when picking us up after a delay. Would absolutely recommend to anyone who loves a quiet, private and peaceful holiday with incredible views.
Beautiful house with a great view of the sea and fantastic sunsets. Lots of mosquitos so bring bug spray. A few houses overlooking the back of the house but otherwise remote. There are quite a few buses per day into Lipari centre, the buses are quite reliable. On arrival we were given a short tour of where to find the cash machine and the local supermarket.
Studio au rez-de-chaussee, donnant directement sur une rue pietonne pavee. Endroit calme. Situe a 10~15 minutes a pied du port de Lipari. Nous avons apprecie notre sejour ici.
Le lieu est magique ! Nous avons passe' un sejour merveilleux avec des couchers de soleil superbes. La vue sur la mer est geniale face aux iles . La maison, en plus d'etre un petit bijoux, est tres pratique avec une cuisine correctement equipee! L'emplacement necessite une voiture ou de prendre le bus (arret a' Pianoconte) Au top!
Accueil agreable. Appartement tres spacieux, bien place' au bord de la mer, commerces a' 2pas et surtout immense terrasse avec vue sur la mer et le Stromboli. On a passe' un sejour de reve. Merci Alfredo
we stayed at atollo 10days and enjoyed the beautiful house and surrounding. the boat trip with giovanni where we ate at la pina on volcano was great and the food delicious. we would definitely recommend staying at atollo!
Accueil parfait d'Alfredo qui est venu nous chercher a' l'arrivee du bateau. Merci pour les informations. L'appartement est situe' dans un rue calme a' 10 mn a' pied du centre.
Atollo is a small paradise The views are spectacular, the hosting is excellent. We cannot recommend Atollo highly enough!
If you want a relaxing vacation on an enchanting small island with kind people, amazing food, and amazing views, visit Stromboli!! We absolutely loved our six day stay on Stromboli. We wish we had longer. The apartment was perfect. It is right by the beach and has everything you need. There are numerous hotels nearby that offer great food at great prices. There is a hotel down by the small port (Hotel Ossidiana) that offers a morning buffet to none-guests for €8 per person and the food was great! I highly recommend a volcano trekking tour to the summit with Daniel (magmatrek, next to the big church at the lookout point). Watching Stromboli erupt at night was an unforgettable experience. Sir Carlo picked us up from the port by bicycle and brought us back to the apartment. He is a very kind man who offers great advice and a wealth of knowledge about the island being one of the only 400 permanent residents. We will be back some day!!
Absolutely stunning! The most beautiful views and on a very clear day you can see Mt Etna! Thanks Al :-)
Very good location near beach, nice house. Downstairs litle bit wet wall. Overall good price value! I recommend!
This place is a paradise.
Great location, great terrace, fully equipped. Great value for the money!
Sehr schone Terrasse, tolle Lage, Ruhig, und Giuseppe ist super !
Atollo is such a unique and exquisite location for a vacation, particularly if you like to spend time out of doors interacting with nature and your local environment. We LOVED our time here, from sunrise to moonrise each day/night. We used the outdoor kitchen extensively and really liked the hike up to and down from this house either to the parking area for a rental car, or directly into Lipari or Canneto (we did both).
Meglio di cosi' non si puo'... posizione, spazi esterni ed interni, tutto fantastico.
Appartamento piccolo ma curato, in una posizione ottimale per girare per Lipari e per organizzare le escursioni verso le altre isole
Alfredo's place is perfect for two people. You have the freedom of cooking for yourself or eating out in the few local eateries and downtown Lipari is easily accessible by car or a local bus. Alfredo is very helpful in providing walking information locally and to other islands and booking tours for me. I would recommend his place to anyone who likes a quiet seaside environment.
Best place to stay EVER! If you are fit and don’t mind a hike, this is the best place you could imagine to stay in Lipari. We spent our honeymoon here and had a very relaxing time!
Alfredo's house has really been our home in Lipari. Is way more beautiful than the pictures! The house is sparkling clean, with basic but functional equipment. You do need a car/motorbike to get there, but it's really 10 minutes from Lipari town, and the view is breathtaking. As an extra touch, Alfredo answers are spot on and check in/check out are the easiest ever. Thank you for this wonderful stay, we will be back.
Vielen Dank fur die tolle Zeit, die wir auf Atollo verbringen durften! Das Haus ist traumhaft und einzigartig! Die Kommunikation klappt perfekt und es gibt alles was man sich wunschen kann. Danke Alfredo!
