Salina

Located on Salina, one of the most beautiful Aeolian islands. Its original Aeolian features have been beautifully maintained by the owners. Spectacular and unforgettable sea views. Suitable for families and small groups.

Villa Didyme is a handsome house that was built at the end of the nineteenth century and is situated in one of the quietest and most exclusive parts of the island of Salina (Capofaro), one of the seven islands that make up the Aeolian archipelago. These islands, 30 kms to the north of Messina, have been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. The villa is surrounded by native Mediterranean woodlands and by the impressive vineyards of the Tasca D’almerita Estate where an exceptional Malvasia wine is produced. Hike or bike to the beach which is only a few minutes from the house. Enjoy the spectacular views at sunset while gazing to the islands of Stromboli and Panarea beyond with the high coastal cliffs providing a dramatic backdrop.

Property details

The breezy patio that surrounds the house is divided into different areas. There is a covered dining area, a thatched roof terrace area and an outdoor shower zone which accesses the garden and the old “palmento” which has been converted into a guest house. On the ground floor of the main house is a large Aeolian style built-in kitchen with a stone oven, a spacious living room with three comfortable built-in sofa beds and a bathroom with shower. On the first floor is a triple bedroom with double bed and a three-quarter size sofa bed, a connecting double bedroom and a bathroom with shower. In the first self-contained adjoining apartment, which was originally an ancient oil mill, there is an elegant double bedroom with a loft where there is a double bed and a bathroom. The second self-contained outbuilding functions as a laundry area, and just in case there's not enough space in the rest of the house, there is a spare single bed too. Next to the laundry is a small bathroom which is accessible from the exterior.

Surrounding Area

Salina

Salina is the second largest of the seven islands of the archipelago the Aeolian islands (UNESCO World Heritage) and lies 30 kms off the coast of Messina. The islands can be reached by hydrofoil in about an hour, from Milazzo (Messina) but can also be reached from Naples, Palermo and Cefalù. Salina is the only Aeolian island to enjoy natural freshwater springs, and it's these, combined with the volcanic soil, that makes it so fertile. The island includes three municipalities: Leni, Malfa and Santa Marina di Salina and there is quite a good bus service with timetables posted at the ports or bus stops. Otherwise, to get around its winding roads you can rent a car, scooter or a motor bike. Salina is shaped by two extinct volcanoes, which rise in the centre of the island, forming a natural barrier between the main settlements and ensuring that the sleepy villages retain their own individual atmosphere. The Aeolians' famous Malvasia is produced here and its fat juicy capers flavour many local dishes. The island is ringed with beaches, but the most beautiful is undoubtedly “Pollara,” where “Il Postino” was filmed (a film about the life of Chilean writer Pablo Neruda). Boat companies serving the island are: Alilauro, Siremar, Snav and Ustica Lines. We recommend a day trip by hydrofoil to see the other islands of the archipelago. The Punta Scario Beach at Malfa (pebble beach) is just 5 minutes from the property and can be reached by bike, scooter or car.
