House for rent in Alicudi, Aeolian Islands
An unforgettable holiday in Alicudi, the most natural of the Aeolian Islands, proclaimed by UNESCO World Heritage as an area of special interest.
Alicudi is a tiny, unique island, only two and a half kilometres wide, off the north coast of Sicily; a fascinating volcanic rock in the middle of the sea, inhabited in winter by less than a hundred people, that can quadruplicate in summer.
The island has neither roads nor car traffic. It can be travelled over only on foot, along century-old stepped paths that take to the mountain (672 m), rugged and grand.

You can take long, interesting walks to explore its wild beauty. At night the absence of street lighting allows a breath-taking view of the stars.
The sea is fantastic, ideal for swimming and  snorkelling.
Alicudi is liveable all year round. Summer offers swimming, sunbathing, meeting people and unimaginable relax; spring and fall are ideal for trekking and walks, with the possibility of swimming as well; in winter the sea and the wind perform storms of dramatic and fascinating beauty. Not often, though, as winters are generally mild and short.
