A truly ethereal atmosphere and breathtaking
views of the Aeolian islands
Villa Nuvola is located a few kilometers from the centre of Lipari, the largest of the islands of the Aeolian archipelago. Standing high on a hill called Monte Gallina the views are fantastic, stretching over the sea to the neighboring islands, forms and colours chainging with the light. Living in Villa Nuvola really does feel like being on a cloud!
Nuvola means ‘cloud’ in Italian, a name chosen by the owners to embrace not only the rarefied atmosphere and dream landscape, but the contemporary design – totally white with the occasional soliatry splash of fresh, zinging orange, lime green, sky blue, with large airy spaces and huge windows designed to maximise the presence of the views at any time of day.
The villa is on two levels, following the natural slope of the hill. The main floor, surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows with panoramic views, is occupied by a large living room, a well-equipped kitchen, and a dining area. Various furnished terraces and the guest bathroom complete the floor. A wide staircase leads to the sleeping area with three large bedrooms, two double and one twin, all with private bathroom and their own outdoor space. A large suite with bedroom, living room, bathroom and terrace completes the sleeping area.
The villa is surrounded by a large Mediterranean garden with lots of colorful flowers and aromatic plants as well as the inevitable olive trees. Various and varied garden areas are perfectly designed for entire days outdoors: there’s an elegant solarium and swimming pool, large shaded areas for afternoon reading and lazing, and for children, there’s a wonderful tree house!

The main town, Lipari is a bustling place dominated by a rocky acropolis which retains the remains of a castle (used as a prison for political exiles under Mussolini) and the Museo Archeologico, with an astonishing collection of archeological finds from the islands and the coast of nearby Sicily.
