Beautiful house with a great view of the sea and fantastic sunsets. Lots of mosquitos so bring bug spray. A few houses overlooking the back of the house but otherwise remote. There are quite a few buses per day into Lipari centre, the buses are quite reliable. On arrival we were given a short tour of where to find the cash machine and the local supermarket.
Vista spettacolare! Alfredo e' stato gentilissimo, ci ha dato tanti consigli ed e' stato sempre disponibile. Da consigliare!
Alfredo's place is a dream. Beautifully located, high on the hill overlooking 270+ degree views of the island/ports/beaches/ocean. He has thought of everything you may need for you stay, so that it is comfortable and relaxing. He was very helpful when we asked questions and kind when picking us up after a delay. Would absolutely recommend to anyone who loves a quiet, private and peaceful holiday with incredible views.
Great place. Alfredo was very nice to take us to and from the ferry! Loved the farm house!
Das Haus ist traumhaft gelegen und mit allem ausgestattet, was man fur einen ruhigen und simple. Aufenthalt nur wunschen kann. Herrliche Landschaft und herrlicher Blick!! Stadt und Geschafte in 20-30min Laufweite. Alfredo ist ein supet Gastgeber, schnelle und einfache Kommunikation, ausserdem hat er uns von der Fahre abgeholt, ist mit uns zum Supermarkt gefahren und hat uns am Ende des Aufenthalts auch wieder zur Fahre gebracht. Unbedingt empfehlenswert!
The climb up to the house is steep and uneven in places but once you are up the house it is incredibly isolated and the views are stunning, on one side Canneto, Panarea, and Stromboli, on the other Vulcano, Sicily, Etna and even Calabria on clear days. Alfredo is a great host and will assist with moving luggage and supplies up to the house on his quad bike. The house is very well equipped so you can remain at the house in the peaceful location or you can go into the lively town of Lipari where there are great restaurants, interesting historical sights and a huge selection of boat trips to local beaches and other islands. We had a car so we could park at the base of the track, otherwise the walk back from town is a bit of a work out. We will always remember our time on the beautiful terrace of this house cooking and eating the wonderful local produce and contemplating the view.
Renzo e' stato puntuale e disponibile. La casa e' carina, pulita e ben attrezzata anche per cucinare e stare all'esterno, come si vede in foto. ln agosto e' un po' calda ma con il condizionatore si dorme bene. Consigliato!
La casa dove abbiamo alloggiato consiste nella meta' della grande casa abitata dalla signora Norina e dalla sua famiglia. La parte affittata agli ospiti e' autonoma e divisa ma comunque adiacente a quella della famiglia di Norina (la camera da letto affaccia su un patio comune, e dunque si puo' sentire a volte qualche rumore specialmente al mattino, ma nulla di proibitivo! la privacy c'e' ma naturalmente e' ridotta rispetto all'essere completamente soli ). Le stanze sono grandi, pulite, spartane e ariose. C'e' un patio autonomo per gli ospiti circondato da fichi mandorli e piante di cappero con un grande tavolo per mangiare, dove si possono ammirare tramonti sul mare spettacolari e notti stellate. La casa si trova nella zona di Pollara, la piu' selvaggia di salina, a 15 minuti a piedi dalla spiaggia di Pollara ( 5 in macchina/motorino al massimo). La signora Norina e' stata sempre disponibile e gentile. Consiglio di portare il diffusore di vape per le zanzare per dormire bene, per noi ha funzionato. Complessivamente consigliato!
Cet endroit est merveilleux. La vue est superbe et le calme regne. Logement typique de l'ile, tres propre et accessible plutot en scooter (en voiture il faut se garer un peu plus loin et finir a' pied)
Casa molto carina. Ambiente familiare, molto curato e silenzioso. La veranda in stile eoliano e' davvero perfetta per le colazioni in perfetto relax o per le sere stellate dopo cena. Abbiamo particolarmente apprezzato la terrazza con i lettini con vista panoramica su Alicudi e Filicudi. Grazie di cuore ad Alessandro per i consigli e per la disponibilita' nei trasferimenti di andata e ritorno tra porto ed abitazione. Grazie anche ai suoi gentilissimi genitori per i dolci ed i fichi d'india
Casa piccola, ma accogliente ed equipaggiata con anche Wi-Fi ed aria condizionata. Posizione strategica nel centro di Lipari. Nessun intoppo, assolutamente consigliata
Si vous aimez etre au calme, au milieu de la nature, la vue sur la mer, les couchers de soleil, la meditation, l'introspection, bref si le bonheur ne vous fait pas peur...vous etes au bon endroit.
It was e great pleasure to stay in Canneto at Alfredo's place. It's a lovely little appartment, perfect to stay with two persons. It. The beach and the sea are right in front of you. From Canneto it's very easy to go anywhere, and after visiting other places ans islands very nice to return. We'd love to come back here!
We very much enjoyed our stay at the villa. Great place for people who enjoy a great view and simple living. No frills but beautiful location. The steps would be a challenge for anyone with limited fitness. We had an 8 month old with us and that was sometimes a challenge (hard surfaces and small steps in the house). Overall we would recommend the villa for a very relaxing stay
Eccellente posizione direttamente sulla spiaggia di Canneto, godibilissima balconata con paesaggio incantevole sulle altre isole, appartamento con grandi spazi e stanze da letto attrezzate con ventilatore. Unica pecca, che non dipende dalla struttura: il traffico sulla strada sottostante che in certi momenti e' davvero troppo intenso e disturba nelle ore notturne.
Many thanks for a superb stay in your lovely house! Staffan & Elin
Am fantastischsten sind Alleinlage, Ausblicke, Aubendusche, Stille...
Alfredo is a very nice and helpful host. He came to the harbor to meet me and helped me a lot providing information about the neighborhood. The flat is located in the center, just 3 minutes by walk from the harbor. Although its small, but is quite convenient. Thank you very much Alfredo
Als Alleinreisender mag ich sehr dieses Haus. Fur mich alles perfekt
Sono stato benissimo nella casa di Alfredo. Splendida la vista su golfo di Canneto. La terrazza con la vista sulla spiaggia era come essere a casa di Montalbano. Alfredo e sua moglie sono stati un host sempre disponibile per ogni nostra richiesta. Perfetto linsieme di stare nella natura ed avere tutti i servizi offerti dal villaggio di Canneto. Torneremo con piacere
nice and easy place
We stayed here for 5 days and it was a really great experience. The home was near everything and had a great private outside area. Super friendly and kind host that picked us up at the harbor and drove us back again on the departing day.
Die Lage ist sehr gut in der Nahe vom Porto Marina Corta und dem kleinen Badestrand Porto delle genti gelegen. Bei Bruno kann man um die Ecke einen Motorroller oder Fahrrad preiswert mieten und in 3 kleinen Supermarkten gutes zum Essen und Trinken kaufen.
The Atollo house on Monte Rosa is probably one of the best kept secrets of Airbnb. Houses like these are what makes Airbnb fantastic. To be able to gain access to such a place like Alfredos house on the hill overlooking the active vulcano Stromboli in the distance is nothing short of breath taking. The best way to get to and from the house is to rent a scooter/motorino and drive up to the end of the road. From there you have to walk for 8-10 minutes. The house is very secluded and in the beginning of June you are basically alone with the horizon as your closest neighbour. We can highly recommend this stay!
Wir waren als Familie zu viert in Alfredo's Haus und haben die Zeit genossen! Aufgrund von Anreiseproblemen kamen wir todmude mit der letzten Fahre und haben uns sehr gefreut, dass Alfredo uns spontan abholte! Der Empfang war sehr nett und alles hat gepasst. Die Einrichtung hat uns ebenfalls gefallen. Sehr positiv: WLAN und Klimaanlage und genug heibes Wasser fur 4x hintereinander duschen! Due Treppe zur sehr schonen Dachterrasse ist allerdings eine Sache fur sich. Ach ja: die Nachbarschaft ist durchaus temperamentvoll - wir haben uns sehr amusiert. Die Lage ist prima: abseits vom Touri-Trubel, Bushaltestelle vor dem Haus, recht nah zur schonen Spiaggia Bianca und auch sonst alles da, was der Mensch so braucht.. Danke Alfredo!
We had a great time in Alfredo's home. It has a beautiful location above Lipari town with views out over Stromboli in the distance. The height gives it a refreshing breeze through the day, and the terrace is shady and well equipped. We particularly liked lounging in the Hammocks with books and a cool glass of wine. My partner did a bit of sun worshipping on the roof. The property is however some distance from town. There is a steep path down hill to the centre of town, but you would need to be pretty fit to clamber back up! The taxis in Lipari are to be avoided - very expensive and we had a particularly unpleasant experience with one, who got us lost, and then demanded 40 euros with menaces (including a fist in my face). A car is essential for this property, and Alfredo was able to negotiate a modest discount at the pit stop hire place in town. They were charming and helpful. I would use them again. The house is basic, but clean and comfortable. The terraced garden is quite steep; which might be an issue if you come out with a free-range toddler. The island is beautiful with lovely views, rocky beaches and restaurants. Boat trips to the surrounding islands and to Stromboli, are delightful and filled a happy week, following the family wedding we originally came out for.
I can only confirm everything that has already been said in the previos comments. This nice cottage in Monte Rosa is just a perfect hide away for people who love nature and want to spend some days in a spectacular place with gorgeous views, sunrise and sunsets, tranquility, time to relax and dolce far niente, and just enjoy the beauty of this place. Alfredo was a perfect host and always at our disposal if we needed something. I can highly recommend this location and will definitely come back! Grazie mille Alfredo!
Alfredo's house on the island of Lipari is a very special place. I stayed for four weeks by myself and was sorry to leave. First and foremost it must be said that the location is outstanding. The house literally sits alone on top of a hill that has been reserved for nature and from the yard and also inside the house (thanks to well placed windows) you can see endless sea and incredibly, Stromboli, Panarea, Vulcano and Mt. Etna. You are way up in the sky so birds like hawks fly by at full speed and you can hear their wings. While the spot has a definite feeling of solitude, it is also well connected. The wifi is unlimited, fast and reliable which is rare on the Aeolian Islands. Town is actually close by and has every convenience. There is a 5 minute hike to the road which goes up the hill, but from there you can either walk or drive to town. I recommend driving because like all of the eolian islands, there are lots of hills. Alfredo is kind and helpful. He and his family live just down the side of the hill from the rental which gives you a feeling of security. He answered my questions when ever I had them and was very respectful of privacy always scheduling before arriving with water delivery, etc. I highly recommend this home!
Perfect house on a beautiful location, we loved it!
Maison idealement situe' en front de mer. Les recents travaux de la terrasse ouvrent encore plus la vue sur les eaux turquoises... mais laissent egalement entrer le vent du large sur la terrasse... et il a beaucoup souffle' cette semaine de Paques ! Un peu trop tot dans la saison pour profiter au maximum des prestations de la maison d'Alfredo, mais j'imagine que l'ete', c'est l'ideal !
Extraordinary views - just like the pictures (if not better) accompanied by delicious sunsets. Me and my partner found House Particular a great base to explore Lipari and the Aeolian islands, even without a car or scooters (which would have definitely made getting 'round the island much easier, but sadly wasn't an option for us) It is located close enough to the local bus service to/from town, but a small supermarket and a few superb restaurants are only a stone's throw away just at Pianoconte. We had a few excellent take-away pizzas and dined at Marisa's (must try their desserts!). Alfredo picked us up from the port, before which we equipped ourselves with food and wine from a nearby supermarket at the harbour and primarily self catered; then kindly dropped us back to the port at the end of our trip. Good to check with the host if you need to pick up any extra coffee, water, oil or coal (only some of which was provided). Upon Alfredon’s recommendation we walked to the gorgeous beach. It's a steep climb, but it was totally worth it! We went quite a few times. The location is very quiet and secluded, the water is crystal clear and the pebbled beach is an unusual palette of purples, blues and reds. The house itself is beautiful, super clean and well equipped. The outdoor shower is a great treat in the morning! Alfredo was very easy to communicate to and helped us with anything we needed (including getting lost on our way to the beach for the first time!). As well as transferring us from the port and back he have us plenty of tips and recommendations. Thank you Alfredo!
Nice place and clean room, but we didn't see much Alfredo.
Beautiful place, the photos don't do it justice. Amazing views and nice cosy house. Tough if you're walking but worth it. Alfredo was very helpful in picking us up and dropping us at the port. Would stay again.
