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 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!

To be on your own private terrace but literally just steps from the water was perfect. Almost too many terraces to choose from. ;-) The next supermarket is about a 15-20 minute walk away, but they do deliver your stuff for free if you buy there before 1pm.

The responsible lady was very friendly and made it possible to leave our luggage in one room. Our first impression of the hugh property was really good. The house is exactly how it is shown in the pictures in the internet. It is very clean and well maintained and full equipped with everything you need in your holiday. The big terrace is the most beautiful place. We loved it to sit there for breakfast or dinner and enjoy the amazing view over the sea with the islands Panarea and Stromboli. The property offers many different lovely places to sit and just relax. The only negative issue which might be worth to mention is the traffic light infront of the house. It is situated approx. 150 metres from the house. Since we slept with open doors we saw the traffic lights also in our bedroom. Malfa is a lovely little village with some nice restaurants and bars, two boutiques, a bakery, a butcher and a supermarket. You will get there everything you need. We (two adults with two children) enjoyed our stay very much!
