Lipari is a great vacation spot. Out of sentimental reasons (I visited the place 20 years ago as I was still studying) we include this island. The partly lovely and partly cliffy Vulcan landscape is very impressive. Lipari is the largest of the Liparian Islands and it is vulcanic origin. It includes a well build out street grid of about 27 km. Easily can you plan trips over the island with your car or by bike. The highest point of the Island is Monte Chirica (602 meter) and Monte San Angelo (594 meter). Towards the west, the coast plunges down. Towards the east and the north you will find leveled coastal strips. Canneto, which is 3,5 km north to the capital Lipari-city, includes a flat coastal strip with a prolonged 6 km beach.
Liparis vegetation is impressed by oleander, caper, olive groves and far fields with various southern fruits and vines. The main source of income for the Lipari people is, beside tourism (mild climate and outstanding water sports opportunities), agriculture, fishing and the cultivation of pumice and obsidian.
Caneto is known to be the center of pumice winning. From here you can reach by foot the pumice and obsidian grooves of Forgia Vecchia and Rocche Rosse. Approx. 1 kilometer from Canneto, you will be able to swim wonderfully at the Spiaggia Bianca. Contrary to its name, the beach is not white, but consists of darker gravel and pumice gravel. Canneto is a small and country typically angled aeolian coastal town with all necessary stores and a good infrastructure. After a merely 6,5 km car ride you will reach Acquacalda from where you will have the best view to the neighborhood island Salina.
Although Lipari is a small island, it is rich on sights. A flying visit will be not enough! The sights include:
- San Calogero with hot sulfur spring and spa hotel from 1887
- Belvedere di Quattrocchhi with beautiful panoramic view over the entire island wold, especially the island Vulcano
- boating trips to the rocky cliffs of Faraglioni and Pietra del Bagno
- for hikers: the bay Spiaggia Valle Muria - can be reached via Belvedere di Quattrocchia
- the main village Lipari (4500 inhabitants) with harbor and castle mountain where you can find a cathedral, a museum, the archeological park and the archeological zone. Towards the west you can find the New City with board walk, bars, stores and restaurants. Lipari is rich with churches, historical buildings and palaces.

All apartments of the two-level building include ocean view of the patios and balconies. The patios and balconies are framed by aeolian pillars and obtain an antique atmosphere. The entire structure blends harmonically into the landscape and among the characteristics of the neighboring homes - this gives the estate its name. A contact person is always on site, since the Villetta possesses a reception and a bar.
The estate is amidst the classical bathing center of the island on the old fishing town of Canneto. The town got its name from the various cane that grows along the beaches. The town was the former home of quarry workers who ablated the rocky mountain. Today the area has a great infrastructure and you will be just 2,5 kilometer from the historical center of Lipari.
The Villetta is flanked on one side by the public road and three entrance ways lead to the estate (do not worry: the traffic will not be bothersome). Parking spaces are located on the estate.
