“Hidden gem on Lipari Island”
Reviewed 28 September 2010

My wife and I went on a last minute to Sicily in September. We found the Oltremare on Lipari through Tripadvisor and booked it for the first two nights. The reviews were good and the pictures were nice enough. Flash forward -- we extended our stay until the rest of the week. The Oltremare is truly the hidden gem on Lipari! Located in the small town of Canneto itis easily reached via bus and a brief walk up hill from the port. The town itself is much more tranquil then Lipari itself. There are several good restaurants and bars, though you will be quickly tempted to cook in or just get some take out pizza, since you will have the best view in the whole town. Each apartment has it's own private balcony, perfect for catching up on a good book or having a nice breakfast or dinner. If you want to get away from it all, this is the place for you in Sicily!

Reviewed 15 August 2010

first of all this is not an hotel but a group of apartments, recently built and good in size with a fully furnished kitchen. they don`t do daily cleaning but this is normal for non hotel ospitality. the staff is friendly and helpful. nearby there's a cheap supermarket, restaurant and beaches. in 15 mins walking (or few minutes by boat) you can reach the spiagge bianche beach, if you want a change from canneto bay beach. many of the excursions to the eolian islands stop also in canneto harbour so there's no need to go to lipari and get a boat from there.

our room had a superb view on canneto bay: the view alone is worth the 5* of this review. we had all our breakfasts and dinners in our terrace overlooking the bay, with the sounds of the sea and the little boats, and nice sunsets.

very recommended
