Many thanks for a superb stay in your lovely house! Staffan & Elin
Perfect house on a beautiful location, we loved it!
Extraordinary views - just like the pictures (if not better) accompanied by delicious sunsets. Me and my partner found House Particular a great base to explore Lipari and the Aeolian islands, even without a car or scooters (which would have definitely made getting 'round the island much easier, but sadly wasn't an option for us) It is located close enough to the local bus service to/from town, but a small supermarket and a few superb restaurants are only a stone's throw away just at Pianoconte. We had a few excellent take-away pizzas and dined at Marisa's (must try their desserts!). Alfredo picked us up from the port, before which we equipped ourselves with food and wine from a nearby supermarket at the harbour and primarily self catered; then kindly dropped us back to the port at the end of our trip. Good to check with the host if you need to pick up any extra coffee, water, oil or coal (only some of which was provided). Upon Alfredons recommendation we walked to the gorgeous beach. It's a steep climb, but it was totally worth it! We went quite a few times. The location is very quiet and secluded, the water is crystal clear and the pebbled beach is an unusual palette of purples, blues and reds. The house itself is beautiful, super clean and well equipped. The outdoor shower is a great treat in the morning! Alfredo was very easy to communicate to and helped us with anything we needed (including getting lost on our way to the beach for the first time!). As well as transferring us from the port and back he have us plenty of tips and recommendations. Thank you Alfredo!
Alfredo e' stato molto gentile e disponibile. La sua casa e' un vero paradiso. E' stata una settimana stupenda.
Io e la mia famiglia siamo stati benissimo in questa casa. E' un posto bellissimo, per il panorama, i tramonti e il silenzio. Non e' cosi' lontano da Lipari centro, bisogna secondo me noleggiare un motorino (o un auto ma in alta stagione si gira male a Lipari) per goderselo appieno. Alfredo ci e' venuto a prendere al porto come da accordi, e' stato gentile, facilmente contattabile e disponibile. Una vacanza bellissima!
Superbe endroit tranquille pour decouvrir un plaisir rare de l'existence le "Farniente", entre la mer et le ciel Et Alfredo est un hote a l'ecoute et prevenant
Had a wonderful stay at this wonderful house. Highly recommended.
Alfredo war ein super Gastgeber. Wir wurden abgeholt und bei Fragen konnten wir ihn jederzeit kontaktieren. Im Haus war alles vorhanden und es war sehr gemutlich eingerichtet. Die Lage des Hauses ist traumhaft, ruhig und der Blick wunderschon. Wir hatten eine wunderbare Zeit und empfehlen das Haus sehr.
Acogedora casa en esplendida ubicacion con maravillosas vistas de las islas y el mar. Tranquilidad total y gran belleza de los atardeceres. La casa esta' completamente equipada con todo lo necesario. Fantastica experiencia.
Short after our arrival at Lipari Alfredo we've been picked up by Alfredo and guided to this magic place in the western part of Lipari. He kindly introduces us in the features of the apartment and provided us with some very helpful advice regarding adventure tours to Stromboli and several other highlights of the Eolian Islands. The apartment is very well equipped, quiet an cosy. Watching the sunset from the roof top is just breathtaking and everything you need is close by, you'll find very good restaurants in less than 10 Minutes walking distance. It is the perfect place for relaxing holidays. We very much appreciated our stay and would love to come back sometime. Thanks for everything, Alfredo!
We had an amazing time in this beautiful house. I like the special atmosphere of the ancien house completly renovated in 2008. Everything was super clean. You have a lot of space, a great outdoor-shower, everything in the kitchen, wifi, tv (no need for it) big terrace and the two roof terrace and the amazing view. Alfredo is a friedly and helpful host and I´m glad that he saves this cozy house at this special place! The best place to have a peaceful accommodation on lipari! We will certainly stay there again !
From the beginning to the very end, Alfredo has been the perfect host. He picked us up in Lipari in his Mehari which already gave us this paradize look of the island. He spent time to show us everything in the house, but also what was around (Restaurants, excursions, Supermarket ...). He knows everyone and everything you need to do in Lipari, and the other Eolian Islands. Then he drove us back in Lipari at the Scooter store so we could have our own transportation vehicle for the 5 days. A scooter or car is necessary if you stay at Alfredo's. (there's a bus stop at 15mn walk but for 20$ a day you have the scooter : you'll save plenty of time and and enjoy the back & forth to Lipari with the view) On top of that, the house is perfect and clean (roof top with paradize view, outside shower, kitchen with everything you need, washing machine ...). Plus : 5mn riding your scooter, you will have the best beach of Lipari (ask Alfredo) We really had an amazing time and definitely recommend Alfredo's if you are staying in Lipari.
L'accoglienza di Alfredo e' stata perfetta e molto professionale, non abbiamo avuto il minimo disguido. La casa e' eccezionale dotata di qualsiasi confort per rendere perfetta la vacanza. La posizione e' particolare ma e' cosi' che la volevamo: lontano dal rumore, immersa nella tranquillita' dove abbiamo potuto lasciare libero il nostro piccolo di 5 anni senza che ci fosse alcun pericolo (strade, auto, traffico...). Avere un mezzo proprio o noleggiato e' sicuramente piu' comodo ma abbiamo notato che il servizio bus o taxi sono ben organizzati ed accessibili senza troppa fatica dalla casa. I tramonti, il panorama e le cenette sotto la tettoia esterna sono a dir poco eccezionali. Ringraziamo ancora Alfredo e ci scusiamo se non abbiamo potuto salutarlo personalmente alla nostra partenza.
Alfredo is a wonderful host, and i cant say enough good things about the house. Its perfect for a relaxing and remote stay on Lipari with amazing sunsets, roof terraces and a view from the outside shower to blow you away! There is everything you could need provided and if you have any questions Alfredo is quick and attentive to help out any way that is needed. I would recommend getting a scooter or car for your stay as it is out of town and this makes getting to the markets and beaches much simpler. I hope to be able to return to Lipari and would definitely stay here again or in another of Alfredos properties which also look delightful! I very highly recommend both the property and the host. We had the most wonderful stay. Thank you Alfredo.
We had an awesome week at Alfredo's house. It is fresh, convenient and roomy. The view from the roof is breathtaking. Pianoconte is a very nice and quiet area of Lipari with everything you need. Alfredo has been really kind and available throughout our stay. We very much recommend this house!
Das haus von alfredo liegt nach wie vor sehr schon alfredo ist absolut nett und ein sehr guter gastgeber allerdings waren wir enttauscht dass neben dem Haus inzwischen ein Neubau entsteht. Die Bauarbeiten waren nicht laut , aber davon hatten wir nichts gewusst. wer die Abgeschiedenheit sucht findet sie nach wie vor in diesem sehr schoen eingerichteten haus, allerdings nicht mehr in dieser Alleinlage. Dennoch haben wir uns sehr wohl gefuhlt und konnen das Haus empfehlen.
We basically spent two weeks in paradise. The photos don't do justice to the experience. Amazing view during the day, at sunset and at night! The location does require means of transportation as it is in a hilly area, but that also brings the advantage of much cooler temperatures and more quiet than the busier centres. Alfredo was a really great host, he picked us up, brought us to take the boat on the last day and was always available for any questions. He also had a bottle of prosecco for us in the fridge on the first day to enjoy the first sunset! All in all a great experience and would find it hard to imagine a better place to spend a holiday in Lipari.
This is one of those hidden gems you rather wanna keep for yourself! You can relax in complete privacy in the middle of Lipari's fantastic nature. The island is wonderful and we would have loved to stay longer. We had a perfect stay in Alfredos house. Alfredo is a great host! We felt really welcome and he took really good care us with pickup both at arrival and departure and good advices for where to go and what to see. This picturesque little spot is even more amazing IRL. Sunsets were beautiful and surroundings too. We enjoyed to cook in the lovely kitchen (really basic equipped, but with everything we needed) and eating dinner under the stars at the rooftop terrace. The interior design of the house was nice, cosy and clean. This house is everything we were looking for! Thanks for a great stay! We hope to be back.
Posto splendido con un panorama mozzafiato, casa comoda e con tutti i servizi. La gentilezza di Alfredo, il padrone di casa. Tutto perfetto. Consigliatissimo.
Tres agreable petite maison avec tout le confort necessaire et les nombreux conseils d'Alfredo.Tout est bien organise et pratique.Et bien sur le grand calme en pleine nature.Il vaut mieux prevoir un moyen de locomotion,mais le bus n'est pas loin a pieds. De plus, Alfredo s'est montre tres arrangeant en nous laissant la maison une demie journee de plus (depart le soir) gracieusement. Donc un grand Merci.
We absolutely loved our time in Lipari, & staying in this beautiful house. Alfredo was fantastic collecting & dropping us to the ferry, as well as answering all our questions & giving us info about where to go & eat. The view from the house is stunning & won't easily be forgotten. Watching the sunset from the roof terrace overlooking the vineyard & the sea is particularly memorable. Thanks Alfredo!
Thank you very much for your welcome. Alfredo picked us up at the port. The house is ideal to discover the Eoliennes Islands. The sea view is beautiful. A very good adress to remember!
Все хорошо, все супер!замечательный вид!спасибо за каникулы!
Alfredo met us at the ferry and lead us to the house. He showed us around and offered suggestions for what to see and do. We had a great stay and wished we had booked more time there. It is a bit of a walk in to the house from the road and parking but that also means more quiet and off of the beaten path. The kitchen was good the beds comfortable the outdoor shower very nice the upper deck amazing especially at sunset. We want to go back and stay longer!
Se vuoi prendere l'aperitivo al tramonto con la persona che ami,allora nella terrazza di questa casa devi andare.......Posto incantevole e casa molto carina. Sergio&Laura
Alfredo was an excellent host - meeting us at the ferry port and helping us pick up our hire car before taking us to the house. The house is within walking distance of several restaurants, a couple of which we visited and were very good. The house itself is well equipped - wifi and air conditioning both worked great. The views, particularly from the roof terrace, are amazing.
La casa di Lipari è molto graziosa e funzionale e con vista splendida.
This was our second visit to the Aeolian islands and also our second stay in one of Alfredo's apartments. This particular apartment was very spacious with a double bed downstairs and an upstairs part (also with a double bed) accessible via a spiral staircase. Alfredo had even installed free wiFi. From the upstairs part you can access the roof via a set of steps and on the roof was a sunbed, chairs and a table - ideal for watching the sun set, which Alfredo strongly recommended we do! One very refreshing addition to the apartment was the 'outside shower' - a great experience showering outside in the warm Sicilian breeze. The apartment was in a quiet location, with a view over gardens full of trees and vegetables. Nevertheless, the village is within easy walking distance with a few very nice restaurants - we had an excellent dinner in an affordable, immaculate restaurant with top-class service, called "da Marisa" ... highly recommended! The Aeolian islands are generally contoured by steep rocks, making access to the sea difficult, but we discovered a walk down to the sea directly from Alfredo's apartment (takes around 45 minutes to get there). Great fun ... and the people of Lipari are very warm and friendly.
Great place, with a beautiful view in a very quiet surrounding only 10 min from Lipari. The house is perfect and has a great atmosphere. The owner Alfredo welcomed us at the port.
I just spent two weeks in this house in early-May 2014 , and it was perfect. I think this house is ideal for a couple who wants intimacy, or for a solo person looking for tranquility and meditation. I guess it could also be great for a couple with a child, as there are two beds, one downstairs, and one upstairs on the mezzazine. You're really feeling away from it all when you're there. The house in itself is simple but with everything you need (the only thing that is missing is a towel, so bring one, or buy one in town). There is even an outside shower, and it's such a great feeling to use it in the late afternoon after a hot day ! You won't be disturbed by the neigbors, as they're remote enough, and they're quiet people anyway. Sometimes you'll see people working the fields. Maybe you'll meet Anna, their very shy and good-natured dog that I befriended by giving her chocolate cookies. But what really sets apart the house for me, are the moments you can spend on the terraces. One is open-sky, on the top of the house. The other is covered, just in front of the entrance, and is equipped with the best invention of all-time: a hammock. So you can choose whichever, depending on your mood and the weather. But whatever your choice, believe me, you will relax. You'll see the beautiful and coloured fields surrounding the house: cactus, flowers, vineyards, and all kinds of plants I don't know the name of. You'll see the islands: Vulcano, Salina, Alicudi, Filicudi. On clear days you'll even see the Etna and its impressive snowed peak. And then of course: the sea, as far as the eye can see, quite, blue, hypnotic. If you're inclined to contemplation, believe me you'll fell good there. And then, whenever you're hungry and don't feel like cooking, whenever you're tired of all this beauty and quietness, all you have to do is take your car or your scooter: in 10 minutes, after cruising a road with jaw-dropping vistas, you're in the town of Lipari, which I found to be a very charming town, with good restaurants at reasonnable prices (I didn't try the high-end restaurants, but my prefered ones were Il Galeone, Pescecane, and La Cambusa). Personally I would recommend the scooter, as it's such great fun to explore the island with it. But the car also works. As for Alfredo, which will be you contact, he's very friendly and efficient. Whatever the hour of your arrival, he'll come get you at the port and take you and your luggage to the house (same for departure). If, like me, you arrive late and hungry, he'll take you to a pizzeria for a take away. In 5 minutes, he'll tell you everything you need to know about the house, and then it's all yours. To finish this review, for those of you who don't know the Aeolian islands: it's really a great place to spend holidays in the springtime. The weather is generally great but no too hot; it's not overcrowded; and all the islands are beautiful and different. I think next time I'll spend time in Stromboli, which has a unique atmosphere. So, as you can guess, I strongly recommend this house !
We had a great stay in Alfredo's house. The location is just awesome and the view on the sea and the other islands is unique!! Even better than on the pics. Last but not least, Alfredo is a very nice snd responsive host! We definitely recommend to stay here!!!!
Wir haben die drei Tage Aufenthalt im House Particular sehr genossen. Die Lage ist außerordentlich schön, sieht man von dort aus eine Reihe der Inseln rundherum im Meer liegen. Auf Vulcano hat man einen ähnlich schönen Blick wie von dem Aussichtspunkt Quattrocchi. Die hohe Dachterrasse bietet den perfekten Rundblick überhaupt und die Möglichkeit, Sonnenuntergänge mit einem Glas Wein zu genießen. Die überdachte Sitzecke vorn beim Eingang ist dagegen geschützter. Es gibt mehrere Sitzgelegenheiten, auch eine Hängematte ist da. Vor der Küche der Kakteengarten ist auch sehr ansprechend. Das Anwesen ist etwas abgelegen, dafür von paradiesischer Ruhe. Wir mögen das sehr, wie auch die landwirtschaftliche Nutzung der direkten Umgebung: Wein, Feigen, Kürbisse und einen Granatapfelbaum haben wir gesehen. Die Nachbarn haben gearbeitet und waren sehr freundlich und aufgeschlossen. Man braucht unbedingt eine Fahrmöglichkeit. Wir haben uns direkt am Hafen ein Auto gemietet, das war eine gute Entscheidung. Das Haus selbst ist klein, aber gut geeignet für eine kleine Familie, für ein Paar oder für bis zu vier junge Leute. Die Küche hat alles, was man braucht. Alfredo war freundlich, hilfreich und unterstützend, jedoch auch zurückhaltend. Wir wären gern noch geblieben für einen richtigen Erholungsurlaub.
Great Place, very relaxing, be sure you have a car or vespa.
I would definitley recommend Alfredo's beautiful and sweetly decorated house near Lipari. Its a little cozy retreat, ideal for couples and you have plenty of space for your own. There a two big terraces from where you can enjoy the beautiful sunsets over the Aeolian Sea. And it is well equipped with really everything you need (except internet, but that was what we were looking for! :)) especially the hammock is great! Alfredo was a really polite and helpful host, he picked us up at the harbour even late in the evening because our ferry was on delay. He helped with everything, answerd quickly via sms and explained a lot. Thank you again! According to the host, accomodation, furniture and cleanliness I would give 5 stars, it's just the location that missed the fifth: You need a scooter, otherwise you can't reach anything without walking a few kilometers. And the house itself is located really rurally, where only a small dirtroad leads to it. But nevertheless it is totally worth it! PS: One word according the scooter: Our experience with renting the scooter at Luigi's was not that positive, so we would personally recommend to choose one of the other renters. But maybe we had only some bad luck.
Alfredo was a wonderful host, and House Particular was beyond our expectations. Really the perfect vacation spot! We got a lot of tips for Lipari from Alfredo, all of which were fantastic. We even ran into him in town a couple times which made us feel even more like we were living in Lipari. All around, amazing! Highly recommended.
In September 2013 we had 4 great days at this location. It's a very typical house - without luxury and equipped only with the most necessary things but it is very charming and cosy with a spectacular view over the surrounding islands and amazing sunsets. The house is located in a very quite area in the hills of Lipari, so it's perfect if you are looking for peace and relaxation and enjoy crusing around with scooters as we did. Alfredo was very friendly and picked us up at our arrival and departure days. Wish we could have stayed longer! Thanks for a great holiday! Annika
Juillet 2013 Lovely house, clean and typical, Alferdo is very nice, good spot to discover lipari !
We have stayed for 3 weeks and they were great. The house was good equiped, clean and the surrounding very quiet. No traffic noise, the only thing you heard was the chirping of birds and the humming of insects. The helpfullness of Alfredo deserves the highest praise. Thanks for everything. Co v R
Great house on a great island and Alfredo made it all easy.
Le me start by saying Alfredo went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and happy, thanks, you were wonderful. The villa was in an amazing spot set amongst vineyards and farmland, overlooking beautiful ocean. The villa was very clean and well renovated with lovely little touches throughout. It did get very noisy when the wind picked up in the evening which meant a little less sleep than usual but we caught up in the hammock during the day. Wonderful getaway!
Exceptionally beautiful place. Quiet, incredible view. We stayed there in January, and it was wonderful (but we were lucky, it was exceptionally warm for the season).
Superbe maison sur les Iles eoliennes avec une vue imprenable sur les volcans et les iles alentours. Je recommande ce logement pour passer quelques jours tranquilles Alfredo nous a récupéré à la sortie du bateau pour nous accompagner au logement
the place is as magical as it looks!!! I had the most relaxing stay!! the little town where the house is located has everything you need and the main town of Lipari is not even 10 minutes away by car, with even more restaurants and shopping. the place is super sweet. It was one of the best vacations I ever had!!!
Totally beautiful place, view stunning, so remote and dreamy. Wish we had know how far it was to the ferry first as we would have rented a scooter when we arrived. So relaxed I could set up home there!
your place was very beautiful and we enjoyed our time there. You might tell future guests that there are neighbours close enough to hear their conversations. Also, you could be clearer about what is needed for the kitchen. There was some olive oil and some spices,etc., but no salt, dish soap, wash clothes for dishes or drying towels. We suggest you either provide these or tell people what is required. Other than that, it was quite beautiful and mostly peaceful. Thanks, and all the best. Peter and Bandana
Alfredo is a generous and considerate host but also a professional. Others have called him a real estate agent but actually he runs a consulting business, with holiday rentals as a sideline. We had some communication issues on both sides before we arrived but Alfredo handled them extremely well. He picked us up, helped me to hire a Vespa, and drove us to Casa Particular showing Denise the supermarket etc while I drove behind. Alfredo also picked us up on our last day to ferry our luggage to the port, the time of pick up changed as circumstances changed that day. Alfredo was nice, knowledgeable and as helpful as he could be. We stayed a week and it was one of the most fantastic places we've been. A relaxing paradise. But you do need transport! And it is not really a place to stay 2 or 3 days, you are just getting used to it when you have to leave. It was out of season but the weather was good except for the last two days when high winds cancelled our Napoli ferry and we were not sure we could get off the island on the day we wanted to. Alfredo was very helpful by his advice and being flexible. We were originally reluctant about Casa Particular because of its isolation. Lipari is more a holiday rental than a B&B market and certainly when we arrived at Casa Particular it took us a couple of days to get settled. There was nothing there but a bottle of water and some leavings from other guests, so that a supermaket and stocking visit are essential. We also took some time adjusting to the dwelling. But the views and the location were magnificent and the house is unique. Lipari is a wonderful island and it was good to be away from Lipari Town. Pianoconte village and the locals were pleasant. La Machina is a good restaurant where we ate once (only open for us Fri-Sun). The local pizza run by a lovely couple is as good pizza as we had anywhere in Italy. It was convenient and we went several time - mostly takeaway. Thank you Alfredo you were very good to us. We'd love to come back to Lipari and Casa Particular, but it would be for at
The villa is better than anticipated, once you see it for what it is then you will really enjoy it. The views are breathtaking and the support provided by Alfredo in terms of getting you there and back and also when we couldn't work out how to get the air con to work. The sunset view over the sea is worth the price alone. We hired a car and parked it at the bottom of the dirt track, definitely some kind of transport would help. One of the most enchanting holidays I have ever had.
The cottage is wonderfuly located, you will enjoy its beauty, peace, character; practical amenities, Alfredo is taking on board his guests suggestions; an example:the toater is there:-) as per longchairs etc. All what you need is nearby at the small Pianconte village. No problems at all for transfers from and to the port. Enjoy, relax, you get what you see. Without any doubts i reccomed it and thank Alfredo for hs kindness
Excellent house with a magnificent view of the island. To watch the tramontana (sunset) on the top terrace ( it has 2 terraces) andwatching a unique landscape,listening to an italian opera is something priceless.... For the rest mastercard.... Regarding the house, it is ok,with good AC. We had a litlle problem with the waterflush andthe owner sent a plumber inmediately to solve the issue. (clap clap!) The only thing I would add are towells and a toaster. As an overall great deal!. We would come back again for sure! Ciao and grazie per tutto!
perfect place to enjoy the beauty, the quiet and the sunsets of Lipari. I can really recommend it!
Idyllic house in the middle of farming country. Remote yet well located near Pianoconte village with access to a small supermarket and pizzeria. We were picked up and dropped off from the port and rented a scooter, which was excellent for seeing the island and getting around. The house was clean, comfortable and so relaxing. Would definitely stay again.
The house has amazing views in a very quiet an peaceful setting. It was about a 10 minute drive from Lipari port so a vehicle of some sort is recommended to get around. There a long dirt road to the house which our quad was able to manage, but a car would need to be parked at the bottom of the road. It was clean and comfortable and provided some rest to the end of our busy days and end of our stay in Sicily. The Aeolian Islands are amazing and it was well worth the trip.
You are getting what u see. It's fantastic little cottage house up in the mountains far away from the world but close enough to everything u need to enjoy your stay without a hustle. Enjoy the view and tranquility, what else u need to have perfect holidays?
This little house is in a beautiful location.
Servizio e cortesia ottimi..anche il prezzo buono l'unica difficoltà e l'accesso all'appartamento che se venisse sistemato renderebbe meno complicato l'arrivo alla villa. Da consigliare
Vulcano Consult provided an efficient English speaking booking service, and arranged a car to meet us off the hydrofoil when we arrived which made for a stress free start to our holiday. Casa particular al tramonto Lipari is a secluded apartment on the side of the island with fabulous views. The facilities are basic, but perfectly acceptable. The beauty of the place is being able o sit on the veranda without being overlooked and feel like you are the only person for miles around. That, and watching the sun set behind the neighbouring island of Filicudi with a glass of Marsala in your hand. Within 5 minutes walk is the centre of Pianoconte village which has a few restaurants, a grocery store, and a bus stop to other parts of the island. You'll have to get a taxi back from Lipari Town though, if you stay out late (easy enough even at 4am). feedback leave in flipkey in 21/01/2010
The property was magnificent, perched on the hilltop, far removed from the hustle and bustle of Lipari. We loved it. However, it would have been nice if a few basics were provided: more toilet paper, towels for the beach, salt and pepper for the kitchen -- and a sharper knife. Otherwise, lovely. We would definitely return.
per tutto, per il vostro servizio. Soggiornare in quella casa è stato stupendo, non dimenticheremo facilmente i tramonti di cui abbiamo goduto. Vi stiamo già facendo pubblicità. grazie ancora Annamaria
