Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday home in Italy - 'A PICCIRIDDA

1 doubleroom, 1 bathroom, 2 persons - BEAUTIFUL TERRACE OVERLOOKING THE SEA

In Panarea, Isole Eolie, this little independent delicious house, 'A PICCIRIDDA', from which its name in Sicilian dialect, is very special for its wonderful position overlooking the sea where you can admire the fantastic view of the active volcano “Stromboli” ant its nightlly eruptions and the smaller islands Basiluzzo, Dattilo, Lisca Bianca, Lisca Nera and Bottaro.The house has a very nice double-room with a great half-roundel window, 2 meters large, so as from the bed you have the wonderful sensation to be floating on the sea. Bathroom is adjacent to bedroom.

Kitchen is small but efficient with fridge, freezer and oven.Outside a splendid terrace with a masonry sofa, comfortable seats and two tables for dinner for 6 persons.The house is in the centre where you can find all you need (shops, food, etc.).“‘A Picciridda” is the ideal holiday place for young couples on their “ honeymoon “ or for more aged couples too who desire to relive happy moments in this unforgettable atmosphere.

Panarea (kmq.3,4), compared to Capri in its best years, is the smallest but certainly the most exclusive and enchanting isle of the all Aeolian Archipelago formed from other six famous isles: Stromboli, Lipari, Vulcano, Salina, Filicudi e Alicudi.

An interesting characteristic of Panarea that contribute to its uniqueness is the total inexistence of carriage-way. In fact the ancient mule-tracks have been today restored for the only use of little electrical cars or some little motor means of transport.

Other important characteristic:_ in the roads there aren’t electrical lights so that the nights in Panarea with its starry sky have really a magical effect_.

With little rental boats you can enjoy of the beauty of the sea with its crystal-clear waters and its fantastic shores, or in alternative you can choose to go to the sea –side near the house.

The island also offers the possibility to go for beautiful walks in the mountain: the highest top is “Pizzo del Corvo” (420 mts.).

The perfect spot on a lovely little island

  • 5 of 5

We didn't think it was possible for A Picciridda to live up to the photographs, but it was actually even better in real life. Carolina was the perfect host, meeting us off the ferry with a freshly picked flower and taking us up the hill to the house on a little electric cart (no cars are allowed on the island), she had bottled water and cold Prosecco waiting for us in the fridge and the house was perfectly equipped for everything we needed. The views from the house are breathtaking and it's easy to enjoy all your meals at home, but there are also many lovely restaurants and bars only a short walk away. The house was clean, comfortable and very tastefully decorated - the view of the sea from the bed is something we'll never forget. The only downside is that it can be a little noisy from the famous open-air Raya discotheque in peak season. We absolutely loved our stay and will definitely return and recommend friends.

Great stay - very romantic!

  • 4 of 5

The view from the apartment is to die for - one of the most stunning you could wish for. The apartment is very cosy – definitely suitable for two only.

We had a lovely week’s stay and Carolina was very friendly and hospitable. Definitely recommended for a quiet, romantic "get away from it all" break.

The perfect place for relaxation, stunning views

  • 5 of 5

'A Picciridda is the perfect place for a relaxing holiday. The location is ideal. Close enough to town so that you can walk to everything easily -- shops, restaurants, the port, activities -- yet down a quiet passage way. The terrace is the real star of the property. Overlooking the sea with excellent views of Stromboli. Perfect for a couple, the property is clean, well-appointed and well maintained. We like to cook for ourselves and found everything we needed in the kitchen. The owner is knowledgeable about every aspect of Panarea and is very helpful and friendly. I recommend this property very strongly. We've had 2 magical holidays here and hope to return again.

Beautifull, amazing and perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

È un posto unico al mondo, a picco sul mare e con una delle più belle viste di Panarea: Stromboli, Dattilo, Basiluzzo e lisca bianca.

La picciridda è ben arredata e curata nei minimi dettagli, ottimamente manutenuta. I proprietari molto gentili e sempre disponibili a soddisfare eventuali richieste.

secret place in paradise

  • 5 of 5

Its the perfect hideaway to enjoy this pretty and charming island. From the gorgeous terrace you enjoy the morning sun and the view to Stromboli and the port. I could sit there for 2 hours just watching ….. The apartment is furnished so tastefully in the eolian style and Carolina is caring host, who makes you feel at home from the very beginning!! Thank You!!

Wonderful honeymoon retreat

  • 5 of 5

A truly perfect little apartment - despite the August heat and the holiday crowds, this little gem is tucked away and provides complete privacy. The terrace is gorgeous and the views are simply stunning - whether at sunrise, breakfast coffee, evening drink or midnight digestif. The windows open out to give a stunning view of the bay from the bed so, even if it is cloudy or if there is a spectacular thunder storm, you can watch it all from bed! The island is fun, lively and beautiful and there's plenty of little coves or restaurants to get away from the crowds. Carolina was very helpful and gave us a list of restaurants and delis to visit - all of which were wonderful. We couldn't have asked for a better place - island or apartment - for a week during our honeymoon. We will definitely be back!
