The Casa del Monte is an ancient Filicudi Island farmhouse with amazing views across the sea toward Sicily and as far as Mount Etna. It was built in the traditional Aeolian style and has been restored maintaining its rustic charm and country aspect.
The rooms lead to the big Aeolian terrace in the front of the house, which is the center of every Aeolian home and makes for a very picturesque, relaxing atmosphere and a perfect setting for outdoor dining and living.
Its high position on the hill above the sea means you’ll see great views, and on top of that, makes it one of the most tranquil and peaceful spots on the island. It’s immersed in the nature and vegetation that covers Filicudi – wild olives, prickly pears and a myriad of perfumed flora.
The house has a very informal, rustic and peaceful atmosphere. It is not luxurious, but comfortable and full of character. Lying in a hammock on the terrace you can soak up the sights and sounds of this very special island.
The house is in a small settlement called Contrada Monte Palmieri and its relatively isolated position makes it a haven for lovers of nature, peace and silence.
To reach the house is a 10 minute walk along a path on one of Filicudi’s many ancient mule tracks. The house is very private, with only Silvio and the Bonica family as neighbors.
We highly recommend staying at the Casa del Monte for the highly unique and authentic experience.
