Villa Bovi Marini is the holiday home of a Roman nobleman and his German wife who wanted to create something very special: a house almost invisible from the outside and with a maximum level of comfort. The villa is in the middle of the Natural Reserve of Linosa, a beautiful volcanic island of the Pelagie (volcanic activity has been extinct for more than 50. 000 years) who enjoys unspoilt nature. The reserve protects it, with its prohibition of construction activity, almost two thirds of the island. The only building visible from the house is the beacon of Linosa reassuring with its flashes of light. Botany enthusiasts, the owners have made a spectacular tropical garden of 3. 000 square meters. Comfortable, exclusive, elegant without ostentation, Bovi Marini Villa is without a doubt one of the most beautiful Mediterranean villas.

Mannarastrippi Villa is close to the most famous seaside attractions of Linosa: the Natural Pool, a strip of sea of ​​incredible transparency imprisoned between volcanic lava and connected with the outside through a natural tunnel and the Bay of Conte, small cove protected by a screen where the sea is always calm.

How to reach the island - The island of Linosa owes its enviable integrity of the lack of facilities for mass tourism.

Tra fiori e mare nell'"isola che non c'è"

  • 5 of 5

Immersa in un meraviglioso e curatissimo giardino ricco di colori e di profumi la villa è ciò che di meglio si possa desiderare. La spaziosa terrazza è l'equivalente della plancia di una nave dove godere l'infinito blu del mare circostante. La splendida cucina all'aperto permette di preparare e di assaporare qualsiasi piatto in perfetta armonia con la natura. Dimora perfetta, da scoprire lentamente, piena di deliziose sorprese... proprio come Linosa. Gabriella e Paolo - Udine
