It is called Strombolian eruption, because the same pattern of eruption is maintained from at least 2000 years. Visiting the top of the volcano is an incredible adventure.

About The Owner
Married with two children.
The Owner purchased this house in 2005
Why The Owner chose Stromboli
I have been to Stromboli since my infancy, and really love the island, is the most beautiful island in the world. Then went back with my children, but renting a house. I was looking at this house as the house of my dreams, and luckily in 2005 the owners decided to sell it and I got it!!
What makes this house unique
It is on the sea, the view is wonderful day and night. During the day you can look at strombolicchio, at the beautiful boats, at the volcano, take the sun in the garden, in the nights you can look at the stars laying on a long chair in the garden, you can see the volcano spitting fire. Though, the house is very central and all the activities are reachable in few steps, sailing, snorkeling, hiking to the volcan, shopping in the small town of Stromboli, buy capperi or shells and lots of other things typical of the island. Further renting a boat from Paolo, who lives close, you can visit the other island or go to Ginostra and make a tour of the island. On the night there are tours and dinner in front of the 'sciara del fuoco'.
