About this listing
Appartments and rooms
I turned my family house in a guest house wich is a big Sicilian style villa. I rent 7 detached appartments. Lovely studios for couples, or small houses for families or friends, most of them have their own kitchen and a terasse.
There are commun areas like a barbecue, an outdoor shower with hot termal natural water, a solarium and an huge mediteranean garden.
Situated on Vulcano Island, we (email hidden) from the habour wich is the earth of Vlcano town. You are at 500mt far from the black beach and the termal beach. At 5 minutes of walk from supermarket drugstore bars and great restaurants.
Perferct for an authentic aeolian experience, to discover the traditional sicilian way of life, calm and natural, also we ask to our guests to respect the silence of the villa at night and to make a responsable use of water and air conditioning
Everything is clean and beautiful, we treate this house like our family treasure, and we are happy to share it with you.
Please respect the silence of the villa at night
Do not smoke drugs

My staying at Casa Genovese was great. The accommodation is exactly as described: gorgeous, spotless, in a very quiet location yet near all the must-see of the island.
I was warmly welcomed, and provided with all the info I could possibly need for my staying.
Due to an unexpected event, I had to leave the island earlier than planned. Antonio went the extra mile to help me, showing me his understanding and support. I definitely recommend the place for the warm atmosphere, the amazing garden and patio, the hot showers outside, the solarium and the perfect location to visit the island.
Where to start.. Vulcano is gorgeous! The apartment is beautiful and the setting is perfect. From the moment oncle picked us up at the port to the moment Antonio dropped our bags off at the key a little slice of (very hot) paradise was had. Perfect, quiet, original and fabulous place... Loved the no name cat and the outdoor thermal showers. We will be back!!
Nous sommes restés deux nuits dans ce havre de paix. Antonio est venu nous chercher au port, comme prévu. C'est un hôte très accueillant et prévenant. Le
We loved our stay at the beautiful Casa Genovese! Rustic and simple living space. Clean. All the basics! The amazing thermal water outdoor showers were a perfect ending to a long day at the beach or hiking the volcano! Antonio was super helpful! He gave us all the tips and must-see sights around the island! He even recommended a scooter rental and his uncle recommended a boat rental shop for us! He was very kind and cheerful. Antonio even picked us up from the port and drove us there on our last day! I would recommend Casa Genovese to anyone wishing for a relaxing Aeolian Island experience. Definitely rent a scooter and drive around the entire island (takes maybe 1 hour max) and rent a boat and circle the island for great swimming/snorkeling! Also hike the volcano!
Excellent séjour chez Antonio et son oncle Tanino, un personnage extraordinaire! Sans oublier l'accueil de Francesca. La maison est très jolie, et dépaysante . Le regard se porte sur une multitude de détails . Le must est la douche extérieure...à l'eau chaude naturelle!!
La chambre est charmante avec ses carreaux colorés. On s'y sent vraiment bien !
On y retourne sans problème ! :-)
Our trip to Antonio's home on Volcano was fantastic. Due to work commitments elsewhere Antonio was unable to meet us so had arranged for us to be collected from the port by his uncle Tanino, One of the nicest human beings to walk this planet. Get to know him, you will be richer for the experience.
Our room was a good size and comfortable with everything we needed and more. Air-conditioning worked well and although we were on the same level as the gardens we were not troubled too much by mosquitoes.
Everything about this place was relaxing. The gardens were fantastic and the thermal showers were to die for. These were set in the gardens, which at the time we arrived were in full bloom. Tanino has spent a lot of time developing the garden and creating mosaics and other artworks he is a true artisan.
The property is a little way up the road from the port and a gentle 15 minute walk will get you back from town. You will need a flashlight to help you home at night as the roads are quite dark.
There are many restaurants to choose from, there are ample car hire and boat hire operators and plenty to see on this small island. I will not list them here, as part of the joy for us was making the discoveries as I'm sure it will be for you. Volcano is very safe, quiet and rustic. I hope it stays that way forever.
I cannot recommend this listing enough. The hardest thing you will have to do - is leave.......
Wir haben vier Tage auf Vulkano verbracht und es war wirklich das Highlight unserer Sizilien-Reise. Tanino (Antonios Onkel) hat uns vom Hafen abgeholt und uns bei der Ankunft mit leckerem Esspresso, frisch gepresstem Orangensaft und Kuchen verköstigt. Die gesamte Anlage ist mit der großen Sonnen-Terrasse, den Außenduschen und den vielen Pflanzen wirklich liebevoll angelegt. Auf der Terasse, von der aus man einen unverbauten Blick auf den Krater hat, haben wir desöfteren gefrühstückt, zu Abend gegessen oder einfach nur die Ruhe genossen. Tanino war stets sehr fürsorglich und obwohl wir kein Italienisch sprechen, haben wir die Unterhaltungen mit Ihm sehr genossen. Antonio kam später dazu und war stets bemüht, dass wir alles hatten, was wir brauchten. Insgesamt war es eine sehr familäre Atmosphäre in der Casa Genovese und wir konnten uns wunderbar erholen!

Com’è piccolo il mondo agli occhi del ricordo!
