Filicudi (Aeolian Island), among the prettiest and least developed of the Aeolian Islands (UNESCO World Heritage Centre), Filicudi is also one of the oldest, dating back to tectonic activity 700,000 years ago. Shaped like a snail when seen from some angles, the island entices visitors with its rugged coastline lapped by crystal clear waters and pitted by deep grottoes. The island has just a few small villages.
This is a wonderful villa, entirely restored, overlooking the sea in Filicudi island. It can be reached from the provincial road and via a staircase in the harbor. The exclusive location makes it a unique property. The villa perched over the sea represents a peaceful corner with views on the Aeolian paradise.
It’s a 3 bed / 3 bath in approx 2,000 sqft property made in Aeolian style, and composed of two separated bodies connected by an amazing large terrace with breathtaking view.
The main house has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathroom, a wide kitchen, a mezzanine, and a large terrace.
The other unit, is 1 bed / bath, with a wide window wall overlooking the sea, outdoor kitchen, and solarium area.
Furthermore the property boasts huge terraces, a second outdoor kitchen and several gardens. Air conditioning in every room.
There is an approved permit to build a fourth bedroom with another bathroom, and the option to buy a huge and useful garage very close to the villa.
Filicudi is not just a place for bathing and summer holidays and, if you really want to appreciate its uniqueness, you should visit the interior, especially between the months of April and June and from September to November, when the crowds have left. It is a wonderful feeling to walk along the pathways in complete silence, accompanied only by the wind. It is striking to walk below or above the impressive terrace walls, which seem to be standing by miracle.
You will be moved by the people’s kindness when they greet you and they are always ready to help you in any situation. The sky on Filicudi is marvellous, unspoilt by street lighting, making the stars stand out brightly and making it a magical experience to walk in a full moon.
