We stayed in July 2015. I've been meaning to recommend this property since we came back.
The apartment had everything that we could have needed but best of all was the view. We could see the sea from the kitchen which was great when we were preparing food but better still was to just sit on the balcony and look out towards the Aeolian islands.
We only had a week (really wish it had been more) so were usually out and about but it was just fantastic to sit and enjoy the calm and the quiet in the mornings and especially the evenings when the sunsets were stunning. It was the first time that we'd rented a property right opposite the sea (literally a minute's walk to the water!) so we really enjoyed going down to the beach in the evening after a day out in the sun and relaxing, leaving only once the sun had gone down.
I'd been a bit concerned about parking-shouldn't have been- there was loads of it. We'd also been really anxious to know that there was somewhere we could stroll to for an evening meal and have a glass of wine without needing to drive there and back. I can't remember its name but there was a great pizzeria /restaurant just 4 or 5 minutes walk turning right out of the apartment. There's also a bar/ gelateria where you can have a wonderful Sicilian breakfast of granita and brioche- that's only a minute or two walk away.
We met the owners Patricia and Maurizio. They were lovely and couldn't do enough to ensure that we had a fantastic holiday.
I would recommend a car if you choose to stay here. There are some fantastic places to visit- having said that if you fancy a really restful break and are happy to enjoy the same beach/ eateries every day, it's a fabulous place to be.
