The Aeolian Islands or Isole Eolie, are located in Messina
province off Sicily's
north coast. This volcanic archipelago is located just off the northern coast of Sicily in the Tyrrhenian Sea. The seven islands of Lipari, Vulcano, Salina, Panarea, Stromboli, Alicudi and Filicudi
collectively exhibit a unique range of volcanic characteristics, which earned them a place on UNESCO’s World Heritage list
in 2000. A dazzling cobalt sea and windswept mountains engulf picturesque apartment rental, condo rental and villa rental accommodations on the islands. The people are warm and friendly, and their town's romantic citadel
offers an uninterrupted record of its inhabitants from Neolithic times, featuring an extensive acropolis
This is an area of extraordinary natural beauty, featuring vacation rental accommodation with extraordinary views. Lipari
is the oldest and main island, and generally offers the widest selection of vacation home rentals overlooking lidos covered with the finest white sand
. There are many things to do in close proximity to charming apartment rentals, condo rentals and villa rentals. If you're feeling energetic, hike to the top of Mount Sant'Angelo
, the breathtaking view will greatly repay your efforts. For a more relaxing vacation you can sunbath on near-vertical slabs of lava
or rent a boat and go snorkelling or diving. Enjoy a leisurely stroll through interesting shops or indulge in a glass of wine and a delicious meal based on local cuisine and fresh fish at one of their seaside restaurants just minutes away from vacation rentals.
From apartment rental, condo rental and villa rental accommodation you can take day trips to the other islands. Vulcano
, a younger extinct volcano is studded with fantastic formations
, both above ground and under water. Stromboli
, the baby island, features two miniscule towns on opposite sides of a mildly active volcano and the blackest beaches
. The garden island
slopes are blanketed with deep green vineyards that produce a heady malvasìa and its waters are populated with fish and octopus. Tiny Panarea
is the jet-set island
, and perhaps the most picturesque, with its stark white lodging and villas and brilliant yellow ginestra bushes. It boasts fashionable vacation rental accommodations and the summer homes of many wealthy Italians. Filicudi
and smaller Alicudi
are both blessed with magnificent shores and underwater vistas
. A popular outing is to Filicudi's Grotto of the Sea Lion.
Famed for captivating vacation rentals and a series of active volcanoes with numerous craters, the Aeolian Islands are a popular tourist destination in the summer. Apartment rentals, condo rentals and villa rentals offer a place where you can experience relaxation and tranquility, discover marine beauty and unique landscapes and enjoy a mild climate cradled by the sea breeze.
