About Gabriella Cerami

I am from Sicily, but just in the summer 1979 I landed for the first time in Lipari, in the company of my current husband ( whose family originally come from this island ) and I fell in love at first sight.

During all these years, we have travelled a lot for work and have lived in various European countries, experience that has allowed me to improve my language skills.

Since then I returned to this place every single year, during my summer vacation, for long or short periods, together with my family, my children, for whom this place has become a real reference point.

Over time we decided, together with other members of our family, to invest in this wonderful island. We have expanded the original family property, acquiring and renovating several neighbouring houses that currently make up what today we call Borgo San Gaetano.

BSG is a set of six of apartments and small independent houses, gathered around a green garden with trees and Mediterranean plants. The properties overlook the crystal-clear waters of the beach of Acquacalda Lipari which offers one of the finest views of the island.

Today I live with my family in Milan, but I go back frequently to Lipari to take care of our little village.

Gabriella Cerami purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Gabriella Cerami chose Lipari

We have created this little paradise for our family and for our children, because they have their own point of reference, being now citizens of the world.

We decided to rent out the houses in periods when we do not we use it personally. That's why our guests always have the feeling of being at home, with all the conveniences.

What makes this apartment unique

This is and will always be a magical place, where the sands of time runs slow, letting you get away from the hectic pace of everyday life, where each sunset is unique and each dawn surprise.

That must be why I unfailingly keep coming back, every summer since 37 years!

Sehr empfehlenswert!

  • 5 of 5

Wir verbrachten 10 Tage in Aquacalda (Familie mit 2 Teenagern). Die Wohnung ist gross, sehr sauber, sehr gut eingerichtet und mit fantastischem Blick aufs Meer gelegen. Die Lage ist ruhig und absolut einmalig. Der Kontakt mit der Vermieterin bzw. vor Ort war sehr angenehm und zuvorkommend. Wir empfehlen die Wohnung ohne Einschränkungen weiter. Im Oktober ist ein Mietwagen empfehlenswert (Bus fährt auch, direkt oberhalb der Ferienanlage) - Geschäfte und Restaurants (1 Ausnahme) sind geschlossen.

Das Haus Didyme liegt direkt am Meer mit einem wunderbaren Blick auf einige der umliegenden Inseln (Salina, San Pietro undStromboli bei guter sicht). Der Strand ist ein Steinstrand, wie auf den Bildern zu sehen.

In der Vor- und Nachsaison fahren zwar regelmäßig Busse nach Lipari, aber doch begrenzt und so braucht man eigentlich ein Mietauto, da in Acquacalda außer einem Restaurant nichts offen hatte (es gibt auch keinen kleinen Supermarkt).

Die Terrasse ist halb überdacht, so dass man sowohl Sonne als auch Schatten geniessen kann, je nach Temperatur. Die Klimaanlage funktionierte einwandfrei auch als Heizung, was für uns im April wichtig war.

Die Küche ist sehr gut ausgestattet, die Betten sind bequem, die Badezimmer ausreichend groß. Alles war sehr sauber und die Betreuung (Empfehlung für Taxi, Anbieten von Hilfe etc.) herausragend.

Hilfreich für uns wäre ein Ordner mit allen Bedienungsanleitungen gewesen, da wir z.B. den schönen Brennofen nicht nutzen konnten, weil wir ihn nicht anbekommen haben. Auch die Einstellung der Klimaanlage (mit Timer und allem) war für an Klimaanlagen nicht gewöhnte Westeuropäer nicht ganz einfach.

Wir haben im Haus Didyme eine wunderschöne Woche verbracht, waren allerdings auch die einzigen in der gesamten Anlage. Wenn es dort voll ist, geht es sicher etwas lebhafter zu. Man kann wunderschöne Wanderungen unternehmen und unsere Fahrten nach Stromboli und Vulcano sowie Wanderungen an der Westseite, von Canneto nach Aquacalda werden uns lange in Erinnerung bleiben.

Spaziosa casa con grande terrazza sul mare

  • 5 of 5

Bella casa di recente ristrutturazione, ben arredata, grande, spaziosa e pulitissima.

La terrazza molto grande e con una vista splendida su Salina, Panarea e Stromboli è l'ideale per prendere il sole senza nemmeno dover scendere sulla spiaggia sottostante.

La zona è tranquillissima con vicino altre case anch'esse tutte ben tenute e curate.

Lipari paese è raggiungibile con la macchina in 20 minuti o con il bus. Nelle vicinanze ci sono anche un paio di ristoranti con buona cucina siciliana.

(Text automatically translated) The apartment is located in Acquacalda Lipari, about 10 km from Lipari, the capital of the Aeolian Islands, where the port of the island. To reach the Aeolian you can choose between various possibilities. The medium definitely the faster the plane, taking advantage of the nearby airports of Naples (NAP) Catania (CTA), Reggio Calabria (REG) and Palermo (PMO). From Naples are available in both a hydrofoil ferry which also allows the transport of the car. From Reggio Calabria or Palermo you can 'directly with the hydrofoil to Lipari (Siremar, Ustica Lines). From Catania by bus or taxi to the port of Milazzo, where there are several maritime connections. For those who would give preference to the plane, the link that we suggest is Catania and its subsequent transfer by shuttle bus or taxi to Milazzo also be booked prior to arrival.

(Text automatically translated) Of course we stand on an island the size and natural marina is dominant over everything, but not exclusively. The final choice will depend primarily on the tastes or the personal predilections thanks to an offer is definitely plenty of opportunities for recreation.
