Agriturismo La dolce vita lipari

La dolce vita               Lipari trekking-----        Eolie bed and breakfast


A scenic drive 5 kms from the port town of Lipari (including the last 150 meters of mule track) leads to the retreat, located on the shoulder of Monte Giardina, above the cliffs of Vallemuria, the closest beach. Alternatively, a steep and highly panoramic path reduces the journey to 2 kms. 

The beach is a leisurely 1,5 kms walk away.
