The Lipari Cathedral

Foodies’ Place

Location:Lipari ME, Aeolian islands, (Italy)
Price:from 150,00 € to 300,00 € per day

Magnificent apartment for 4 people with a stunning sea view right in front of Lipari’s cathedral, in a typical Aeolian two-storey white villa with a big Mediterranean garden. Peace, good Italian food and nature for an unforgettable vacation: the perfect location for any foodie.

The apartment is located on the ground floor in front of the garden and consists of two bedrooms, one with a double bed and one with two single beds, a brand-new kitchen and bathroom between them, accessible from both rooms.

The perfect place for a family with two or three children or for one/two couples.
The rooms have been built in keeping the typical local architecture (e.g. closets built into the walls) and are fully furnished with all comforts (air conditioning/heating, ceiling fan, hair dryer…). The single beds can easily be trasformed into another double bed, if required, and there are two extra children beds if needed.
The bathroom has a large shower built in an old well, with paintings and a hand-drawn beautiful decoration with fish and a hidden octopus.

The kitchen is new but built in the local style and is fully equipped with a fridge, microwawe oven, induction hob and all amenities, but if you prefer to eat out, there are plenty of nice little restaurants in the main town.
Outside the rooms, you will find a cosy terrace with white columns (“e pulera” in the local dialect), table and chairs, an external shower and lots of beautiful flowers (sometimes in the morning you will see “Angelino”, the local gardener, watering the plants).

The sunrise high over the sea, right in front of the apartment, is always magnificent and worth more than a picture. The view of the ancient castle of Lipari, the Cattedrale of San Bartolomeo, is astonishing and changes throughout the day as the lighting shiifts.
The villa also benefits from natural ventilation, a breeze that cools the air on hot Sicilian summer nights. The singing of cicadas is the local music.

Our guests will have access to the lower floor of the villa, to the garden and to the laundry located in the garage. Access to the upper floor is not allowed. There is a big garden where you can take a stroll and observe the wonders of nature or sunbathe, while respecting the privacy of others in the property. Parking spaces are available for scooters, bikes and one car.

From April to October, the host lives with her family on the first floor. When you arrive, she offers meet-and-greet service at the port with transport to the villa. The owner is an English speaking chef, cooking instructor and sommelier from Milano: cooking classes  and food tours are available upon request. 

The villa is located only 2-km away from the island’s main town, not far from the beautiful Chiesa dell’Annunziata, on the top of a steep little road which rises up from the main road. Walking up is a good way to stay fit but is not recommended for those who have difficulties walking.

There is an old path near the church that takes you to the main town by foot in less than 10 minutes (with good walking shoes). There is a bus stop at the bottom of the road, with buses to the town and the beaches. If you really want to enjoy all that the island has to offer, we suggest that you rent a scooter, a car or an electric bike: we can provide rental assistance upon request. The easiest way to reach Lipari is to fly to Catania airport, take the shuttle bus to Milazzo (1.5 hours) and then take the hydrofoil to Lipari (1 hour): if required, we are more than happy to assist with the necessary travel information.
