The space

This is a two levels loft, located on the island of Lipari, Sicily, Italy. Its strategic location just few steps from the Old Harbour benefits of all main facilities, transportation, shops and pubs, all located within walking distance. Sun, sea, all water sports and nightlife will be at your hand, and you will also not need a car. You will be living in a mew, in the city centre, therefore when the windows and blinds will be open, it might be sometimes a bit noisy, although only during the daytime. There is a double bed at the first floor, and a bathroom. At the lower level there is a sofabed with a double bed in the living room with two extra places, which are available only in exceptional circumstances, as the place is for two peoples only, and a small kitchen with everything you need.

I would suggest this destination from April to September, when you will enjoy the best local climate. From the beginning of July to end of August, the temperature might be very hot, since this group of islands is located approximately at the same latitude as the northern part of Morocco. During the two central weeks of August, The island usually also become a bit crowded. It is a rather popular destination until the local celebration of S.Bartolo, which falls each year on the 24th of August.

The Island of Lipari is located approx 20 nautical miles North of Sicily shore, in the Aeolian group of islands. This group of 7 little islands offers to tourists a variety of fun and relax possibilities. You will find detailed information on the web and on several Tourist guides.

The most convenient and fast way to get there is by plane to Catania, Sicily, or to Reggio di Calabria, on the mainland. Then you may use a bus service from the airport to the Milazzo harbour and from there you will reach the island in about 1 hour with the hydrofoil or 3 hour with the ship. Among the air carriers, Blue Panorama, Alitalia and Easyjet fly to Catania and to Reggio Calabria from Rome and Milan.

The property is small and very simple, furnished with the basic stuff only. It is located in a mew in the centre of the village, just steps from the old harbour, used mainly by tourists and local fishermen. It falls within the Congestion Charge area, so if you rent a car, you will not be allowed to park it close to the flat. For this reason I would rather suggest renting a scooter.

The roads on the island are rather few and primitive. In my view, the best option is to rent a small boat, because the best beaches on the island are reachable from the sea only. There are plenty of boat rentals on the island.

Please note the fridge in the photos is unfortunately currently inder repair. Therefore it has temporarily replaced with a mid-size one.

Problematic user. He has complained after his check-out about services not listed in my advert. The flat is offered without air conditioning and he knew this before booking.

Per il check-out ci eravamo organizzati diversamente con la proprietaria ma ci sono state delle incomprensioni! Per il resto tutto come descritto, casa pulita e centrale.
Manuel User Profile
Response from Manuel:
L'orario del check-out come da annuncio pubblicato è entro le 10 per darci modo di fare le pulizie e fare trovare al prossimo ospite l'alloggio pulito e confortevole come lo avete trovato voi. Credo che tra i messaggi Airbnb, il telefono, email, (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) non siano mancate le opportunità di comunicare. Se volevate 1 giorno in più avreste potuto tranquillamente prenotarlo, oppure chiedermi un ritardo. Ma io non ne sapevo nulla e quindi è ovvio che l'orario del check-out sia rimasto come da voi prenotato.

La casa è una bomboniera, le foto non rendono bene anche se è adatta per una coppia giovane o due amiche/ amici (non la consiglierei ad una famiglia con dei bimbi piccoli per via del soppalco e della scala). La location è strategica perché centrale e vicinissima al porto di Marina Corta da cui partono le escursioni per le varie isole dell'arcipelago. Non c'è aria condizionata ma ventilatori.

Response from Manuel:
Grazie Valentina! E' stato un piacere avervi nostre gradite ospiti. L'assenza del'aria condizionata era espressamente indicata nella sezione "Servizi" della descrizione dell'appartamento, quindi se mi posso permettere, lo sapevate anche prima di prenotare.. :-). Ma accolgo il suggerimento dato che quest'anno le temperature sono state superiori alla norma

Hi my name is Manuel.
I have a partner, and I am frequently away for my airline pilot job, I do not have regular hours and luckily I have friends spread all over the world.
I would be very happy to know new people, with only two conditions: they are not troublemakers and the let me sleep when I am back home knackered from work.
Apart of this, I am very friendly and easy going.
