Filicudi Secret Villa | Sicily
“Published in Taschen New Seaside Interiors, this hidden house on the south side of Filicudi has a lovely secret garden and belvedere directly overlooking the sea.”
Upon entering this Filicudi villa guests will first find a pretty kitchen decorated in a unique style. It provides a gas stove, oven, fridge and freezer. Next to the kitchen guests will find the spacious living room. This has antique day-beds and an open fireplace. The owner, who is a passionate traveler and interior designer, has moreover carefully chosen all the furnishings in this villa.
In the master bedroom guests will find a king-size bed. It also has elegant night tables and storage. All the rooms feature wooden ceilings and stone floors, echoing the natural resources of the island. The bathroom is an unusual and charming space. The owner has renovated it and the shower is set in an ancient oven tiled in volcanic stone. There is a further guest room separate from the house. It has a white king-size bed, tables and wardrobes. This room has also en suite bathroom.
The villa has a pretty secret garden hidden among cacti and volcanic stones, surrounded by thick walls to provide plenty of privacy. In front of the rooms you will find a terrace shaded with a roof of bamboo canes. Guests can either relax in hammocks or on sun-beds, and a wooden table with chairs provides space to eat. The property has a further terrace above the guest room with benches, pillows and small table. We recommend enjoying a sunset drink from this hidden corner. Finally the most stunning feature of this villa is the sun terrace, with gorgeous views of the sea and Capo Graziano, the promontory of Filicudi, and plenty of space to sunbathe.
This stylish and ethnic Filicudi villa for rent is situated in the “Contrada Canale“, on the south side of the island of Filicudi.
