My favourite holiday of all time

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do this Villa justice. It is bigger brighter and even more beautiful. The views are incredible. My family and I had one of the best holidays we ever had!! and we travel alot. Lipari itself is so unspoiled of its natural beauty, yet still has all the convenience you could ask for, it is absolutely charming. The people are incredibly friendly and gracious. From the moment we got there we had the neighbours giving us fresh tomatoes and capers from there garden!! I cant even describe how good the food is...try Ristorante Filippino my fav restaurant. I would HIGHLY recommend to anyone going to Lipari and staying in this Villa, it was truly a vacation I will never forget.

Beautiful home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend this property in Lipari. Has everything you need to feel at home, relax and enjoy the beautiful view. Not far from a nice beach and also from the city centre although a mean of transportation is preferable. A swim in the pool is the perfect way to start the day! The house is fully equipped with wifi, washing machine, tv although we never used it..so much better to dine outside and admire the landscape! A truly beautiful holiday un a beautiful house!

Dream House with Sea View

  • 5 of 5

Here we spent the most wonderful week of vacation of our lives. The house is furnished with much love and good taste. The unregenerate location, the view and the tranquility rarely found. Thanks to Francesco, the owner of the house for his great tips and his helpfulness. We can highly recommend this house. We will come back next year again for sure.

The Aeolian Islands are known as the "Caribbean" in Europe. We can confirm.

Owner's Response: Dear friends, thank you for your words.We do love this house, and we try to give our guests an atmosphere of family home, preferring the peace and tranquility for their relaxation. Reading a book on the terrace, watching the sea and the boats down 'in Valle Muria, or drinking a Sicilian white wine, listening to the "music" of the roosters singing, or trying to see the small falcons to hunt rabbits, is an experience that we live every year and that we do not get bored. Have you seen the swallows circling in the sky and suddenly swoop down to drink the pool water? Dozens and dozens of swallows around 6pm are a sight! We are happy for our guests. Thank you for your kind invitation: We'll come to find certainly in Innsbruck!

An Amazing Villa for beautiful holidays !

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une merveilleuse semaine dans cette magnifique Villa. Rien ne manque, les chambres sont spacieuses, les draps sont propres, les salles de bains sont grandes et la cuisine est parfaite.

Nous étions 4 personnes et nous avons tous appréciés cet instant magique. Le temps semble s'arrêter lorsque vous êtes au bord de la piscine ou sur le transat.

Le cadre est magnifique, le calme est au rendez-vous.

Bref, un conseil vous pouvez y aller les yeux fermés.

A recommander bien entendu!

A fantastic villa with an amazing view

  • 5 of 5

We have just come back from this beautiful villa, where we probably had our best holiday ever!! It is so peaceful, there is a lot of wildlife, birds of prey, geckos and various other birds that like to entertain. The house is beautiful, one of the nicest villas we have ever stayed in. What you see is what you get. The house was beautiful and clean, it is clearly loved by Francesco & Brunella. The pool was lovely, and I swam for a least an hour every day.

It is perfectly located, only 5 mins away from town, which is just great! We didn't see much of the island, as we had already traveled down from Napoli, and we really just wanted to relax, we were heading up to the Amalfi coast on our way home too. So it was just perfect. The housekeeper & her husband were lovely people, and we were given fresh vegetables from their garden.

Francesco was so helpful, we landed by helicopter, and he even arranged for us to be collected from where we landed! The flight was amazing, and we flew over Stromboli, which I would highly recommend. He also told us about the swallows that dive over the pool most days, and about the stars, one night we had the most incredible view of the stars. He also helped us organize a hire car from the guy who collected us.

Elisabeth, who is a good friend of Francesco's cooked us an amazing meal on the night we arrived, and bought us some local wines to try, we invited her to spend the evening & eat with us.

We ate at the most incredible fish restaurant Filippino almost every day of our 2 week stay, the food was amazing, it is now our favorite restaurant in the world!

We took our ipods, but didn't listen to them once, you don't need music in such a wonderful place, we just listened to the sounds of nature and spent every evening on the main terrace, chatting and trying all the lovely wines. If you like good wine & amazing food then this is the place to go!

Francesco, we are home now, but are still so very relaxed! :) Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. We hope to come back next year. It's 16 degrees at home & raining, we miss everything already! :(

Ciao for now

Our family decided to get together and after many years have a family holiday.

This meant a wide age group from granny to grandchildren each with different holiday expectations.

We had a wonderful time in Villa la Bruni

The layout is very spacious, well laid out and very comfortable which allows each person to relax if they particularly want to rest. It has a fantastic swimming pool and garden for the more energetic. All is brought together by two large tables placed at each end of the covered porch which runs the whole length of the house. These have multple uses, great dinners, long chats,

various games.

The kitchen and bathrooms are well appointed.

We were pampered by Giuseppina who was determined to educate our northern palates by providing fresh fruit and vegetables from her garden plus capers plus tuna fish .....

We didn't want to leave!

The island is amazing It is small but there are lot's of places of interest to visit

The trip up to the top of Vulcano is an experience.

Then there is Stromboli Alicudi e Filicudi.

Nearer "home" there is a pebble beach just under the Villa, the water is crystal clear and calm. the way up is a little steep but once you have been up and down a couple of times you don't have to stop for a rest.

There are lovely golden evening walks up to what was the crater of a volcano,now filled with garden plots.

We will certainly be coming back

Aeolian Islands are UNESCO PATRIMONIUM.

Lipari is the main of the 7 Aeolian Islands, coming from volcanic origin. With his 8000 inhabitants, is the most equipped for service and sea-excursions. The old town is full of small pubs with live music, there are many restaurants, the hospital, and shops. Museum of ancient Greek mask. Typical are the pumice mines, and the sea all around is similar to Caribbean Sea, with white sand.

There are 2 islands with active volcans: Volcano (15 minutes by hydrofoil) with his sulphuric gas, and STROMBOLI, with lava-eruption every 30 minutes. Is it possible to rise on the top of Stromboli with guides, to see the eruption from 200 mt!
