L'appartamento è simpatico. Bella terrazza! Ideale per un soggiorno tra le isole. Anche fuori stagione (noi siamo stati lì in dicembre). E vicino a bar e commerci. A canneto sono tutti molto gentili. In più Alfredo é stato molto disponibile con noi. Anche per il trasporto dall aliscafo!
It's a lovely cottage, perfect for relaxing in the sun and going for walks, great trekking. Alfredo is a very helpful and friendly host. The cottage is a bit high up on the hill, the only way to get there is walking, but all very manageable. Alfredo was very kind as to bring the suitcase on his quad. Sea views from the cottage are breathtaking. Highly recommended as a hideaway place! Bring your backpack.
I came with my partner for a 10 day holiday to Lipari and stayed in Alfredo's cottage. It was an amazing apartment with high ceilings and walls that were about 1 metre thick. We came in December so it was a bit chilly in the evenings at this time of year but the apartment had adequate heating facilities. The shower was very high-tech with the option of overhead water, side jets or hand-held shower. There was also even a hair dryer in the bathroom. The bed was very comfortable. In the kitchen (among other appliances) Alfredo has a toaster with an English plug and an additional row of English electrical sockets - a lifesaver if you are coming from the UK and forgot to bring your international multiplug! There is an orange and lemon tree in the garden and Alfredo told us to help ourselves to the fruit ... so we did! Alfredo was very nice - picked us up at the harbour and even made a stop at a supermarket for us on the way to the cottage. He speaks English and gave us lots of useful advice about the islands.
you can´t really describe this wonderful place ... the evenings: relaxing in the hammock on the terrace in front of the house, watching the eruptions of Stromboli. if you are "bored" by this sight ... or a little freezy take an outdoor shower at the back of the house (warm water!) overlooking the island of Vulcano.
then cooking at the outdoor kitchen, your pasta will be great!
During the day take a sunbath, watching the ships pass by and the falcons wheel above the house or walk down the hill to the beach of Canetto (steep path, mind your feet! ).
If you stay at this house you don´t need more for the perfect holiday!
The apartment is wonderfully situated at the upper top of the hill with a postcard view on Lipari town and on the valley. The place is easily accessible by car with a 10 min drive or by foot downhill. There is also a nice terrace upstairs to enjoy the sunny weather and green neighbourhood around. Also a must seen place is the hidden beach 3 min drive and 15min walk downhill just at the first crossroad away from the place.
The place was not much equipped, no towels, no salt, etc. so BYO :)
Also the room was extremely humid as well as the surroundings in general - in October. Enjoy!
A very special and amazing place with stunning views. We really loved it and hope to come back one day.
I totally agree with all other guests. If you read the description and the comments, you'll get a very good idea of how it's like.
Alfredos house was great! It is up on the mountain with a reallly stunning view (you even can see mount etna)! You can just sit up there and nearly cry when its getting dark and you look at all the lights blinking at the coast of sicily. The house is newly and very tasteful renovated. You probably will need an scooter, you can rent for 15 euro a day, or - like i did - can get a little discount: i rented one 5 days for 60 euro. Thats really cool too to get around on this beautiful island. One thing, i didnt understand was, that Alfredo doesnt provide towels, so you have to bring your own. Second minus is the cleaning fee of 50 euro, a little too much, i think. But Alfredo is the perfect host and a supercool guy. He picked me up from the ferry and even drove me back there on my last day. I really miss the island, it was extremely stunning there.
I would definitley recommend Alfredo's beautiful and sweetly decorated house near Lipari. Its a little cozy retreat, ideal for couples and you have plenty of space for your own. There a two big terraces from where you can enjoy the beautiful sunsets over the Aeolian Sea. And it is well equipped with really everything you need (except internet, but that was what we were looking for! :)) especially the hammock is great!
Alfredo was a really polite and helpful host, he picked us up at the harbour even late in the evening because our ferry was on delay.
He helped with everything, answerd quickly via sms and explained a lot. Thank you again!
According to the host, accomodation, furniture and cleanliness I would give 5 stars, it's just the location that missed the fifth:
You need a scooter, otherwise you can't reach anything without walking a few kilometers. And the house itself is located really rurally, where only a small dirtroad leads to it. But nevertheless it is totally worth it!
PS: One word according the scooter: Our experience with renting the scooter at Luigi's was not that positive, so we would personally recommend to choose one of the other renters. But maybe we had only some bad luck.
Fantastic view and super cosy terrasse. I recommend to rent scooters, it's quite a long walk to the city, and it's a really good way to get around at the island. It was easy to get in contact and make appointments with Alfredo. I recommend this place to my friends!
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 (phone number hidden) 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.
