Villa Wonderful Lipari

Vacations in Sicily are the best occasion to discover the culture of the island!
Enjoy Lipari, rent Villa Wonderful.

The Aeolian Islands……
as the domain of Aeolus, god of the winds….

A holiday villa on the island of Lipari

A holiday villa with panoramic view – In the heart of the Eolian Islands, Villa Wonderful Lipari is the ideal place to stay and rediscover the taste of simple things, in a place where the perfumes of the country and those of the sea mix and transform themselves into an unforgettable experience. The Villa Wonderful Lipari is situated in a panoramic position on a hill overlooking the village of Lipari, inside a small farm where olive and citrus trees are grown, in the area that takes its name from the nearby church Chiesa dell’Annunziata. The house is surrounded by a flowery garden of wayfaring trees, jasmines, hibiscuses, rose-laurels and bougainvillaea. You can reach it from the main road (Lipari-Pianoconte-Quattropani) through a narrow tarmacked alley of about 200 metres that can be travelled over either on foot, by motorbike, or by a small car. A bus service, with a bus-stop at the church, chiesa dell’Annunziata, connects it with the city centre of Lipari , which is about 2 km away.
The building, which dates back to the beginning of the IXth century, takes its name from its original function of a place used for drying grapes. Since the 80’s , the building was refurbished and widened according to the architectural characteristics of the traditional eolian house, with a wide terrace (bagghiu) surrounded by a law wall which is used as a seat (bisolu). The terrace is covered by a roof of wooden beams surmounted by canes, which rest upon the typical masonry columns (pulera). The house is furnished in a simple way which makes it cosy and practical at the same time.

Unesco heritage – Lipari is the largest island of the Aeolian islands. Dominated by Mount Chirica, Lipari has an area of almost 37 square kilometers. It’s almost 10 kilometers in length and about 5 kilometers wide. Lipari’s natural ground water sources haven’t been fully been utilized; freshwater arrives by ship from Sicily, which is about an hour away depending on which transport service you use. From a historical point of view, Lipari is the most interesting of the islands, though Summer visitors come mostly for the beaches. The main locality, called Lipari, is a charming town that boasts a largely reconstructed Norman-era church and a fine archeological museum nearby, though the archeological park is more interesting. The oldest part of the castle was built in Greek times, but the thirteenth-century walls that dominate the structure are naturally more evident. Following the assault of the Turks, the larger walls were built, and these constitute the fortress’s present appearance. There are remains of several towers and other medieval structures on Lipari, and also some Greek and Roman ruins visible in the Diana District Archeological Park. The large Ponente Beach is the island’s greatest natural attraction today.
