(4 Star Hotels) Lipari - Isole Eolie
Three reasons why you'll love it here
- A historic island hotel within steps of the sea
- The Sicilian specialties served in the Waterline and Le Terrazze restaurants
- The excursions introducing visitors to the wonders of the Aeolian islands
You'll be hard stretched to find a description of Hotel Carasco that doesn't make ample mention of the sea: the crystal clear sea which surrounds the island of Lipari, one of the seven jewels of Sicily's Aeolian archipelago.
In fact, a short flight of steps is all that lies between the terraces of this historic 4 star hotel and the turquoise waters which wash the island's crenulated shoreline.
A glass of wine, a good book, and a balcony facing the Mediterranean Sea. At Hotel Carasco even the most simple things are a source of immense pleasure.
Just as the charming composition of arches, columns, and tiny stairways pays homage to the island's architectural tradition, the bedrooms recall those found in the elegant private villa's dotted along much of the Sicilian coast. Almost all rooms open out onto enchanting views of the sea.
Holidaymakers looking for something really special, will need to book early to reserve one of Hotel Carasco's much sought-after suites, each of which has a double balcony, spacious living room, and bathroom complete with luxurious whirlpool bath.
Typical island dishes, prepared using the freshest of local ingredients and a touch of contemporary culinary flair, are served in Hotel Carasco's "Le Terrazze" and "Waterline" restaurants, and provide the perfect introduction to the age-old gastronomic tradition of the Aeolian islands.
After dinner, guests are likely to conclude the evening in the main bar or the Sky Bar, famous for its live music and crowd-pulling summer parties held by the pool.
The large swimming pool is, in fact, one of Hotel Carasco's most loved features. In the poolside wellness area, guests can enjoy a relaxing massage or take part in one of the yoga sessions, which are timed so as to coincide with the rising and setting of the sun.
For business meetings and corporate seminars, the hotel has convention rooms for as many as 180 participants.
Boat trips, nature walks, guided tours, tourist fishing in the waters surrounding the nearby islands of Vulcano and Salina: at Hotel Carasco, a whole range of activities have been designed for those guests keen to explore Lipari and the other islands of the Aeolian archipelago.
