About this listing
Casa Lupara is situated in S.Pietro, just a few minutes from the Port and from all the commercial activities. Eolian houses reflect a very simple and essential way of life. The basic unit is a cube that can be added either in a horizontal or vertical position, according to needs of the family.
Casa Lupara, completely restored, is one of the oldest houses on the island. The great arch on the front facing the islands of Stromboli, Basiluzzo and Dattilo, with the beautiful Thumbergia flowers, is the very special feature of the house.
Casa Lupara offers two bedrooms with two en suite bathrooms with showers, large kitchen and a partly covered terrace. Beyond the internal staircase the are two independent entrances, one at road level from which you enter in the kitchen and the large twin bedroom ( with possibility to add 2 bed), and one at the first floor, that leads to the main double bedroom and the terrace.
As the domain of Aeolus, god of the winds, the Lipari Islands are a volcanic archipelago visible from Sicily's northern coast . The principal islands are Lipari, Salina, Filicudi, Alicudi, Stromboli, Panarea and Vulcano. Here you'll find beautiful scenery, volcanoes, thermal resorts, water sports, good fishing and, of course, great sea.Geologically, these beautiful islands are quite rugged, with deep caverns, steep cliffs, and splendid views. In antiquity, the island was named "Euonymus".To the south-east, near Punta Milazzese, the remnants of a prehistoric village dominate the fine bay of Cala Junco.
All around the island emerge isles and rocks including the dreaded Formiche’s (Ants), just below the water surface, which have been the cause of many shipwrecks since Antiquity. Panarea is an ideal point from which you can discover the entire archipelago, be it by boat, hydrofoil or helicopter.
From spring to autumn the island offers a wide selection of good restaurants, bars with stunning terraces, discos and chic boutiques. Diving, walking and fishing are amongst the most popular pursuits. Electric taxis are available for all journeys around the island.
Gastronomically speaking, Aeolian cuisine focuses on fresh fish, capers, peppers and tomatoes. The local table wines are very drinkable, while the sweet Malvasia delle Lipari, or “Malmsey” (to Nelson’s sailors) is particularly famous.
