Nice hotel in a beautiful location just up the hill outside the main tourist area in Lipari. Our room opened onto a spacious terrace with gorgeous views. Breakfast on another beautiful terrace. Room spacious and clean. Courteous staff (they don't speak much English, but that's ok). Only one mild complaint: bed was pretty hard. Otherwise everything was great.
We totally enjoyed our recent stay at La Villetta and our only complaint was that we didn't stay longer. Paola the manageress speaks good English and was a warm, welcoming lady. The apartment was a welcome stay after hotel rooms as it was spacious and there were two balconies with wonderful views over the ocean. An Italian breakfast is supplied on the pool bar level. The pool and grounds were well maintained and lovely. Thank you LaVilletta!
We had such a lovely stay here! We came during late-May-into-June, when the island is still quiet, and got just what we wanted: a relaxing break, some beach time, and a chance to eat lots of Sicilian food. Great value for money. Veronica was extremely helpful whilst we were making the arrangements, and once we arrived, Milena picked us up right from the ferry, and gave us a full description and history of the island (albeit in Italian!) during the car ride. Our room was light and spacious and had doors that opened to a sea view and terrace. The bed was quite comfortable, and the bathroom was large and spotlessly clean. The hot water tank needs to fill up again between showers, but that happens really quickly (though not noiselessly). I had no complaints, and my partner's only gripe was that the refrigerator makes a humming noise sometimes that bothered him at night (light sleeper). The breakfast was yummy (a mix of fruit, cereal, cake, croissants, and yogurts) and the cappuccino was always served with a smile. The nearby restaurant was also excellent, though we only ate there on the first night. Because it's the less-populated side of the island, it's perfect for a more relaxing vacation, but if you take a bus or rent a scooter (£15 a day from Luigi's, or £20 from Marcello's) it is really easy to get back and forth to Lipari town or take in the views from some of the hilltop roads. Of course, there's a lovely view of Salina right from the hotel! Would definitely return.
