Amazing place with magical views and real tranquility. The views over Vulcano island and the horizon are breathtaking.

Tina and Massimo are great hosts!

“spectacular views, very difficult access”

We rented casa #1 from June 23-June 30 2012. Unfortunately the weather was a little hotter than usual for this time of year. We were traveling as 5 adults: my husband age 74, myself 66, my 2 daughters and fiance in their 30s. On our arrival we were met at the port by Antonio who put all our bags in his jeep and told us to do our grocery shopping at the Lipari town supermarket. We stocked up for dinner and some and he loaded that into the jeep also. He instructed a taxi to take us to capistello, which is several very hilly miles away from the charming port town of Lipari; not walkable, even in mild weather. Upon our arrival at the top of the hill, views are already evident. We get out of taxi and Antonio loads all our bags and groceries into a motorized cart that is capable of navigating the path to begin to negotiate down the hill. We follow behind walking on a very steep and at times slippery path winding downwards. We have to be careful not to slip. After about 15 minutes we arrive at our spectacular location with what I imagine must be the best views in Lipari. On the open rooftop, Vulcanoe to the right and Monte Rossa and Stromboli to the left and Milazzo straight ahead in the distance. Below the roof is a very large terrace that the bedrooms give onto. There is a large pleasant open space and kitchen. It is all very tasteful. We immediately rented a car and a scooter, which for us was essential. The swimming area below the house is very pleasant and we enjoyed swimming from there to the beach, much easier than walking. We used the grill every night, making delicious dinners from the offerings in Lipari town, especially fish, though lamb delicious also. The walk up and down to the house was a major draw back. We arrived at the top of the hill completely soaked in sweat and exhausted. We had hoped to rent a place in which it would be easy to get into town to stroll around every evening. We did do this, but had to do it before dinner and their was no question of going out into town after dinner. However sitting on the rooftop at sunset and under the stars after dinner was an unparalleled experience. There is fantastic snorkeling here which we enjoyed everyday and we loved the outdoor shower. We consider ourselves to be physically fit, but this was a challenge.

“Great spot”

Stayed here with two friends in late September. Perfect spot, amazing views. LIttle hike up to the road into town, but good for some cardio each day. Villa was clean and comfortable, beautiful patio and roof top deck. Short 5min walk down to a cove for swimming. Some no-see-um bugs towards the end of our stay. Great outdoor shower!
