One step closer to paradise

Traditional Aeolian House on the island Panarea

Breathe the typical and traditional aeolian life style from the cozy and relaxing “bagghiu” of this unique place in Panarea.

  • UNESCO World Heritage site
  • Typical architecture
  • Exclusive place
  • Fantastic location
  • Beautiful sea views
  • Terrace
  • Patio


The property has two floors and two main entrances, one from the garden and one from the street. This goes to a courtyard through a stair and here you find a laundry before entering the kitchen.

On the ground floor is the bright and nice kitchen, a laundry room, a bathroom and a big living room that overlooks the patio and the garden.

On the first floor are three bedrooms with air conditioning, a walk-in closet, a dressing room and a bathroom. Here is the terrace “bagghiu” with a breathless view on the sea and the island. The terrace is also surrounded by a stone seat “bisola” and cylindrical columns “pulèra” rising almost up to the roof. A cover made of canes or grape-vines to protect the terrace from the sun during the day and from humidity during the evening is placed on top of the “pulèra”. In the “bagghiu” you can generally find the water cistern, a wood fired stove and a stone washing-trough.


Panarea is the second smallest (after Basiluzzo) of the eight Aeolian Islands, a volcanic island chain north of Sicily. It is a frazione of the comune of Lipari. There are currently about 280 residents living on the island year-round; however the population increases dramatically in summer with the influx of tourists. In recent years, the island has become known internationally for its celebrity visitors.

The island is an inactive volcano with a total surface area of only 3.4 km2 (1.3 sq mi). The highest point on the island, Punta del Corvo, is 421 m (1,381 ft) above sea level.

There are thermal springs near the village of Punta di Peppe e Maria. Scuba diving is a popular excursion on this tiny island, and you can even swim to a shipwreck between the offshore rocks of Lisca Bianca and Bottaro.

In modern times, Panarea has become a fashionable vacation spot. In 2011, it was described by W magazine as “the epicenter of the chicest summer scene in the Mediterranean.”

Panarea and the entire Aeolian chain were declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2000. Largely because of this, construction and development are strictly regulated and the community retains its storied insularity. Most residences admit only temporary occupancy, and the few year-round homes available are highly expensive and difficult to obtain.

Panarea is reached by boats from Lipari, largest of the Aeolians. Ferry lines to the Aeolian Islands depart from Milazzo (the closest to the islands, but most difficult to reach), Messina, and Palermo. The most direct route is to fly to Catania, Sicily, transfer to an express bus to Milazzo, from where the most ferries run.
