The earth quakes. Every ten minutes the volcano blasts red fire into the air. And at the foot of the black island, the white LA PERGOLA VILLAGE, nestled between palm trees, prickly pear cacti and pink bougainvilleas, gazes out across the sea and pretty neighboring houses of the Aeolian Islands. In the family’s possession for 50 years and renovated in 2010, this elegant home with 170 square meters of living space offers plenty of room for up to six people. Three bedrooms, two bathrooms and two airy living rooms provide ample space for both quiet moments and moments enjoyed with friends and family. The absolute highlight of the villa: the terrace with its dark floor of lava rock and two pergolas – a huge outdoor living room! Placed on the sea-facing side of the house, it opens out with panoramic views of blue water against blue sky and the islet of Strombolicchio. Only 30 meters below the house there is a private bay and beach. The interior of the villa is characterized by a stylish mix of designer pieces, antique books and local craftsmanship. And of course, the kitchen is perfectly equipped: a fantastic collection of Sicilian cookbooks will make you want to taste countless culinary delights – and fresh fish is sold directly at your doorstep!
What to do
A guided trekking tour on top of the vulcano is a breathtaking experience, a boat trip to Ginostra on the other side of the island, a nice walk through the village to explore the beautiful corners of Stromboli.
