Hotel Residence La Villetta ★ ★ ★ ★

Aeolian Islands/Lipari

Even before arriving, the name La Villetta suggests the familiar character of the hotel, originally a private house transformed into a residence in 1991, when its initial 150 square meters were rented out to the first vacationers. Over the years the residence has continued to expand until reaching its current form in 2006. A distinguishing feature is the pleasant maze of stairs and walkways that rise upward, accompanying guests from one area to another.

There are a series of terraces, among vases of flowers and fruit trees in the charming atmosphere of a place that dominates the town from a slightly elevated position, overlooking the sea on one side and the mountains on the other. On two different but adjoining levels are the pool and the hot tub, while the sunbeds face the sun and out towards the sea.

Our hotel is a mix of white classical, cube-shaped Mediterranean buildings from which balconies and terraces with porticoes protrude. In the common areas, you will find a fitness room, right at the top of the property, along with a living room where, in addition to chairs, tables, and TV, an internet hub with a printer is also available to guests. Both internet and Wi-Fi services, which are available in all the common areas, are free of charge. The reception area and breakfast room are located below, near the entrance.
