A typical Sicilian house with breathtaking views of the Aeolian sea and the islands of Alicudi, Filicudi and Salina. Situated on one of the highest points of Lipari island, Casa Zuleika is a place to regenerate body and mind far from the crowds and stresses of normal life, amidst the gentle breeze and sound of birds. Take a stroll through the orange and prickly pear trees in the garden or enjoy an aperitif on the terrace while watching one of the spectacular sunsets we get all year round.
“The four completely unforgettable days we spent at Casa Zuleika were a highlight of our time on the Aeolian Islands. The location of the house is absolutely stunning - set on Lipari's north-western edge, with breathtaking views of Salina, Filicudi and Alicudi. Watching the sunset from the private terrace felt like an extremely privileged experience! The house itself is well-equipped: the kitchen and bathroom had everything we could have needed, and the bedroom was both very comfortable and scrupulously clean. The terrace is definitely the main draw of the house, though, with very comfortable seats and sun loungers, a hammock, and a barbecue (the latter of which was a very welcome addition). We found it extremely hard to leave! In terms of general advice, Da Marcello in Lipari Town was very helpful (and very reasonable) in hiring us a small car suited to the tiny roads that lead to Casa Zuleika. And though we may have been unlucky in terms of the time of year we attempted it, we'd definitely advise against following the walking route described in the house guide that leads south along the cliffs to Pianoconte. It was incredibly overgrown when we took it, and also covered with rather unpleasant-looking spiders. There's a much better-travelled path starting from the Tenuta di Castellaro wine estate (a 20-minute walk from the house) that goes down through the old Caolin mines, which was a 100% more enjoyable experience! (That's no criticism of the house, of course - just our experience of the particular walk in question.) Overall, though, we couldn't have enjoyed ourselves more, and very much hope to return to Casa Zuleika one day soon. Grazia was extremely helpful and responsive with a couple of queries we had, and there really can't be many more beautifully situated houses in the world!”

“The apartment was amazing. From the huge terrace you have an absolutely great sunset view! We loved it so much with a glass of wine. Lory and Antonella were so great, friendly and lovely hosts. Lory was always available for questions and gave so many nice tips and recommendations to explore the island easy individually. Furthermore in the morning we got fresh tomatoes, basil and eggs from the garden/chickens. All in all this place is absolutely recommendable. If we come back to Lipari we will definitely stay at this place again. Mille Grazie :)))”
The Canna is one of 8 mini-apartments at Villa Paradiso offers a bedroom, a small kitchen, bathroom and patio. Just Pianoconte a short walk from the bus stop with which you can reach the main towns of the island.
“We spent 2 amazing days at Claudio and we regret we have not stayed longer to enjoy the exceptional setting of our accommodation. There reigns a real quietude. As for Claudio ... exceptional site, exceptional guest! His kindness, his sense of service and his love for the island made our stay unforgettable. Plan a way of locomotion because the accommodation is high in the mountains or taxi ... attention is not given! We hope to come back when Claudio will have taken his French lessons !! ”
