Make a holiday rental home or villa in the Aeolian Islands, Sicily your home away from home

The Aeolian Islands, also known as the Lipari Islands, are a volcanic archipelago just off the northern coast of Sicily. The main islands of the Aeolian Islands are Salina, Lipari, Alicudi, Panarea, Vulcano, Filicudi and Stromboli. Being volcanic islands, the Aeolian Islands have some of the most rugged and beautiful landscapes in the Mediterranean, with steep cliffs, deep caves and volcanic peaks offering stunning views across the sea over to Sicily.

Things to do in the Aeolian Islands, Italy

There is a massive amount to do from an Aeolian Islands property. The beaches are of course a huge draw to Aeolian Island property, but you could enjoy a hugely active and entertaining holiday without ever touching the beaches too. Each of the Aeolian Islands has beaches worthy of boasting about, from the tourist beaches of Lipari to the secluded, deserted beaches of Alicudi, a wonderfully natural little island, free from roads and settlements. Snorkelling is an excellent way to explore the seas, and scuba diving can be arranged for all levels of ability.

Water sports are particularly fun from a self catering Aeolian Island holiday rental. The amazing underwater world the surrounds the Aeolian Islands makes it a stunning destination for scuba diving holidays, and there can be no better way to explore than by sailing, taking your own route around the area, stopping off in idyllic bays and at secluded beaches, which appear to have never been touched by a human hand! The fishing is exceptional too, allowing you to catch your supper to cook in your self catering Aeolian Island property.

The islands are known for their historical interest too. Remnants from Greek and Roman civilizations can be found, the oldest of which are found on Alicudi and Filicudi Islands. The Archaeological Museum on Lipari is a fantastic starting point for any historical exploration of the Aeolian Islands. Lipari is also the home to some fascinating Roman baths and a Roman sauna cave, which really must be seen to be believed!

Guest can relax on the solarium and the hammok in the garden. We actually loved our stay there. The house is in the centre of Malfa town, but it is out of external view! You can easily reach all town facilities as restaurants, pharmacy, bars, supermarket and shops. Host very nice. We reccomand this place to taste Salina atmosphere!

Stunning views from the property of bay and other Aeolian Islands . We enjoyed great privacy as the other adjacent properties were largely unoccupied during our stay. We walked, ran and swam everywhere and never needed a taxi beyond bag drop and collection but we enjoy exercise . I think those less action be or with children would require frequent taxis although these are readily available and reasonable in price . The property had all you need for a comfortable stay with a few restaurants just a short walk away. Views are stunning and memorable and there stese nice touches such as decor , balcony and outdoor shower ( in addition to indoor showers of course) . Trek up to Fossa delle Felce was very hot and we never saw a sole up or down. Conservation boat trip from Pecorino de Mare was excellent with ultra friendly and informative hosts . A great location for genuine get away from it all break in hot climate with great coastal line and crystal clear waters .
