On my list of places to visit are the Aeolian Islands, a group of small island north of Sicily, Italy. Bed & Breakfast Casa dei Poeti is located on one of the islands, on Stromboli to be precise. This small island contains containing one of the three active volcanoes in Italy.
Casa dei Poeti is ran by Giovanna, who was born on the island, and Dione who is originally from Sicily. Their passion and appreciation for this little paradise in the Aeolian Islands is reflected in the rooms and homes they offer to tourists. Their rentals are intimately Aeolian, with gorgeous views of the sea, large rooms with balconies, the most important area of the house.
During the day, the balcony is the perfect place to chat or read under the shade of a trellis, while your eyes are caressed by the soft wind and by the sight of the sun sparkling on the water.
The B&B is open all year round, an invitation to visit the island for a brief vacation at any time to appreciate the beauty and uniqueness of the village during the various seasons.
A hearty and healthy breakfast of bread, butter, and jam, as well as fantastic Aeolian pastries and cakes, fresh fruit, and cereal, is served on the terrace of the coffee bar/restaurant L’Incontro during the summer months. During off-season, it is served on the ground floor terrace of the B&B.
This B&B seems a perfect spot to unwind! For more information you can visit the B&B’s website.
