“A true retreat (with civilisation just a hop, skip and jump away)”

This magical casetta in the Aeolian Islands is the perfect spot for balancing the need for complete privacy with the occasional and convenient reentry to urban life. One could go for days without seeing others if one so desires - or one could just as easily dash down the mountain for caffè al bar each morning.
The location is ideal: nestled against a hillside with panoramic views towards Canneto, Porticello, Vulcano, Panarea, Stromboli and Sicily itself. It's remarkably quiet up on the hill, even though Canneto seems to be within spitting distance.
From the house itself one needs around 45 minutes to walk to the town of Lipari, which has (super)markets, bars, restaurants, pasticcerie, etc. The first part of the walk is a dirt path (bring a pair of old shoes!). We didn't feel the need to rent a vespa or quad, but doing so would make the town even more accessible. One could also easily explore the other Aeolian Islands from here, although we were happy just to gaze out at them.
All the amenities were well kept and well finished. Alfredo himself was a jovial, reliable and tremendously helpful host (to the point of offering us a lift back up the hill after we had shopped for fresh fish and vegetables!). He is constantly improving and adding things to make it as comfortable as possible.
We will undoubtedly return to this special and unique place and highly recommend it!
