One-room Cottage on the only sandy beach of Panarea, terrace, 3 sleeps
One-room cottage with terrace and patio in front of the sea and just a few steps from the beach: the only real sandy beach of Panarea! Cottage sulla Sabbia consists of one room with kitchenette, sofa bed with two single beds and a double bed (140 cm) on a higher level (see photos). Underneath it is a bathroom. The terrace is surrounded by lush green and a dining table and offers stunning views of the bay, the beach and the Island of Lipari on the horizon. A few restaurants are on walking distance. The village with shops, disco and more restaurants distances about 1,5 km.
Panarea is the smallest and the most fashionable of the Aeolian islands. In autumn and spring Panarea is an oasis of peace and tranquillity, while in summer it is a popular destination for rich and famous people who arrive on luxury yachts in search of glamour and remoteness at the same time.

Beautiful, dreamy setting
I stayed 9 days here with my companion. Though compact in size, the property was equipped with everything needed for a comfortable stay, and we were able to cook meals in the small kitchen area. The outside space was a particularly lovely place to unwind and soak up the surroundings. Location was perfect, right by the best beach in Panarea, and in walking distance to the port. Only downside was the music most days from the bar above the property, very much in contrast to the tranquil, quiet atmosphere of the rest of the Island, but more than made up for by the location.
Cute little place with a few caveats
We enjoyed our stay in this little studio but would likely not book again. The place is as per the photos but is showing signs of age and wear. As the last review mentioned it is at one end of the island, around a 20-25min walk from the port, shops and restaurants. This walk though, is stunning day or night so should not be a factor unless you have mobility issues.
As for the facilities, the kitchen and bed are both pretty small. We cooked a few meals over 4 days which was manageable and the bed was ok for us but we are pretty small people...larger folk may not be comfortable.
The front seating area is lovely and a perfect place to spend the days and warmer evenings. Do bear in mind that there is a restaurant just above and behind the studio and they play music whenever they are open. While the music was not started before 10am and finished before 9pm, our stay was accompanied by a light jazz/ cafe del mar soundtrack. Not loud enough to be annoying but ever-present.
The local contact was very helpful, brought us extra blankets when we needed them and arranged taxi pick up and drop off.
Great romantic house
Small but charming house on remote end of Panarea. Owner met us at the ferry and arranged for transport of luggage. House is sort of semi-on the beach - with views on bay from the front-porch. There is another house built right next door and although the small garden feels private - there is a bit of noise at nighttime. Overall - great location and good value property. Note the island center (restaurants) are about a 20 min walk - which is doable but small electric taxi's offer an alternative.
Soggiorno a cala zimmari
Buongiorno, volevo fare i complimenti alla vostra professionalita', ma al tempo stesso fare qualche critica a coloro che si occupano della casa. Al nostro arrivo c'era il rubinetto dell'acqua del lavello rotto, che mi sono riparato, le 2 porte d'entrata che non si chiudevano, e l'ho dovute riparare, il bagno infestato da scarafaggi giganti(ne ho contati 18), le stoviglie, per la maggior parte, rotte, la pulizia che lasciava desiderare(sotto il divano c'erano ancora capelli in abbondanza, pinza per i capelli, motti di polvere, ecc). Personalmente ho trovato un'isola dagli abitanti inospitali e sopratutto prezzi fuori ogni regola (ma con questo voi non avete nessuna responsabilità). Per quanto riguarda la vostra organizzazione, vi faccio i complimenti. Distinti saluti
Charmigt men slitet.
Det lilla huset ligger vackert beläget och har charm, inte minst pergolan, men det är hårt nerslitet och uselt utrustat (det både saknas köksgeråd och många saker är trasiga). Dynor och möblemang har sett sina bästa dagar, men hyran är verkligen överkomlig.
La casa è esattamente come nelle foto e nella descrizione. Casa molto piccolina ma perfetta per una vacanza rilassante per due persone, il patio inoltre è molto bello per cenare fuori. La posizione è perfetta per chi vuole essere a due passi dal mare, tuttavia la casa è un po lontana dalla piazza centrale dell'isola, 15 minuti a passo svelto o 20/25 minuti per chi è più lento, quindi dipende da cosa sia più importante nella vacanza. In ogni caso ci sono i taxi sempre disponibili ma cari. La signora Mariangela che si occupa della casa è una persona squisita e gentilissima che É stata disponibilissima con noi per tutto il soggiorno e la ringraziamo tantissimo. In generale la vacanza è stata molto bella per noi. Uniche pecche il Wi-Fi che non funzionava quando siamo arrivati perché non è illimitato e abbiamo dovuto aspettare due giorni per riaverlo e la spazzatura fuori dalla casa che ahimè non è tanto piacevole da vedere e porta anche problemucci di altro tipo. Ma questo è un problema dell'isola non della casa.

The terrace of Hotel Raya is the place to be for the jet set, and in August its disco attracts visitors from all the islands. To move, people use to take electric cabs or go by feet. Panarea has an area of just 3,400 square metres, and is 11,5 miles far from the main Aeolian island of Lipari.
