Posto tranquillo e rilassante, vicino altra casa , quindi rispetto per i vicini se ci sono.
Beautiful spot with amazing view. So quiet and peaceful but bit of a walk down to town with very steep slope which meant going to supermarket everyday was a bit of a mission. Taxis back at night are probably necessary! Alfredo picked us up from the port and took us back - a lovely host who also bought extra blankets etc when required. The beach nearby is secluded down a stony path, makes a nice change from busy beach resorts! Very remote which means 4 days was enough, but if getting away from the world is what you're after this place is great!
Wonderful house with an amazing view on Lipari and a beautiful terrasse. The best way to move from and to it is to rent a scooter. The winding roads on Lipari are an attraction by themselves but it's better to be a seasoned scooter rider ;o) if not you can go by taxi (20 € to go to the centre of Lipari) or on foot (we were too lazy to try :oD ).
Alfredo is very efficient, professional and sympathical. He came to take us at the harbour on arrival and took us back there when we left which was very nice and practical. Thanks again !
Alfredo was so kind to pick us up at the harbour and to give us a ride to the apartment. He helped us a lot with carrying the luggage and gave us a tour of the house. The apartment is small, but has everything you need. The veranda is really nice with a hammock and an outdoor shower. The view of Lipari town and the surrounding islands is amazing. Also, there is a very nice sundeck on top of the house. The way from the town up to the apartment is steep, but we did everything by foot. There is a very nice stone beach within walking distance. We enjoyed our stay very much and highly recommend it! We had to postpone our departure for half a day and were very grateful to Alfredo that we could stay a bit longer and that he was very flexible in giving us a ride back.
An absolutely lovely place to stay with a fantastic view. The apartment has everything you could need and Alfredo is very helpful. The walk into town is short but very steep. We hired a scooter which was a great way to get about lipari. There is plenty of parking nearby.
Really nice location, with the best view of the island all for You! The ambient is smart, simple and functional, all you need for a perfect vacation. For visiting the island and go to Lipari center a scooter is needed, and with it all is really fast to reach (rental prices are not high, 20€/day). I hope to come back soon!
We stayed in Lipari for 1 week and really enjoyed the Villa Maracuja. Alfredo made it a perfect time with a first class feeling. Just to mention a few things... pick-up from and to the ferry (even early in the morning), organizing the return shuttle from Milazzo to Catania airport (never had such a well organized travel) and his recommendations for the scooter rental (we do have very good experiences with DA MARCELLO, cell (phone number hidden), fair rates with a nice person).
Please consider to bring your own towels, because it is an apartment and no hotel. It is in the hilly surounding of Lipari.
We suggest a scooter to come around to the city and on the island. Even though, there is a food path to the city. But after a few wine it can be long....In this case I would suggest the taxi Daniele 24/7 (+39-3396884165 or (phone number hidden)).
Just right for the authentic feel you want to experience (i.e. the warm outdoor shower with a mind-blowing view).
Next time coming to Lipari, we will stay with Alfredo again.
La casa è molto carina ed offre una vista davvero stupenda da cui è possibile godere un panorama sulla città di Lipari ed in lontananza anche di Panarea e Stromboli. E' posizionata sulla cima di una collina quindi è difficilmente raggiungibile se non si ha un mezzo a disposizione. Essendo così lontana dalla città, internet non prende e si avrebbe bisogno di un servizio wifi efficiente che purtroppo la casa non offre. Il giardino andrebbe curato meglio prima dell'arrivo dell'ospite e non durante la sua permanenza nella casa. Il padrone di casa è molto disponibile dal punto di vista umano,ma poco serio ed onesto dal punto di vista lavorativo. Soggiorno piacevole,ma con qualche inconveniente.
