The Experience

Hop on the ferry at Milazzo and jet off to Vulcano, one of a cluster of seven islands, in the Sicilian Eolie archipelago. Or get the overnight ferry from Naples; either way it’s an adventure to get here. The house is white and boxy with bright blue shutters in typical Eolian style, deliciously simple and reminiscent of a Greek island abode. It clings to the hillside with endless sea views stretching out at the front and is surrounded by a tropical garden. Inside a minimalist style with a touch of nautical shabby chic works a treat and doesn’t detract from those views for a minute. Enter the light, luminous open-plan corner kitchen where chef can cook up a storm; you eat on the long covered terrace. The living room has a white sofa and armchair, small TV and books to borrow. There are two calming bedrooms (one double, one twin) on this level and one below which is accessed by external stairs and has its own bathroom. The fourth bedroom with ensuite shower room is in the former stable. There’s plenty of active stuff to do here: hike the volcano, go diving, rent a boat to explore the other islands. The perfect house and destination for independent spirited types.

The house is in a beautiful location, has an astonishing view, is fully furnished for family time and the sun deck with whirlpool is a plus. The house is just a walk from the Gelso small beach and very close to Asino beach (the most beautiful of the island). The Vulcano island is small and wild, landscapes are incredible and unique, dominated by the Vulcano, the island is never too crowded (even in very high season) as it does not have many houses or hotels, and that makes it a relaxing and exclusive destination. We really enjoyed our time at Francesca’s house!

A little corner of paradise, "at the end of the world", the house is at the end of the island in a sublime environment (sea and nature), beach, family trattoria...easy living to recharge your batteries under the Sicilian sun. We loved it! Francesca is very responsive and super friendly.

Amazing location, a dream house. You can spend here days just breathing beauty. A true eolian style, close to clear water

Eleonora, Rome

Are you looking for a true immersive experience in Mediterranean nature and islands? That is the place, that is the house! Every morning you wake up and from the terrace you embrace the horizon over the northern Sicilian coast and the mount Etna. Conversely after dinner you drink a glass of wine and look at the sky full of stars with the Milky Way in the middle. It is not a dream, it is the reality of a house located in a wonderful place.

The villa is in an amazing spot on the island. View is breath-taking. Perfect place to get proper rest, reconnect with nature, enjoy the sun and go for daily long dives. The owner is extremely caring and everything is organized perfectly.

This is a wonderful house and amazing location. It instantly relaxes you and it’s possible to never stop admiring the view. The water is clear and great snorkeling. The walk to the Vulcano is a must.

Kirsten, The Hague

Pavarini's house is absolutely amazing. The location, the spacious house, its tasty furniture, the wide patio and the breath taking sea view makes it a perfect staying. We felt we were in paradise, far away from the noise and surrounded only by the sea. The house is only a short walk to probably the most beautiful beach in Vulcano (Asino beach) and around 15 km from Vulcano Harbour where most restaurants and facilities are so it is advisable to rent a car. We loved the feeling of staying in the house and also our 3 children loved it. We will certainly come back this summer!

This place is magical! Will never forget waking up and first coffee of every morning the incredible view of wide open sea looking out to Sicily. Casa Pavarini is an exquisitely restored traditional aeolian house. Spacious, well furnished and super cosy. Close to nice beaches. Highly recommend it.

Deirdre, London

Amazing scenery and eolian dolce vita for this wonderful house beautifully located in the midst of nature, overlooking the sea and a magical lighthouse. I enjoyed my stay in summer and recommend this house and location for couples, families or friends who want to indulge in blue and green landscape while enjoying the surroundings and the cutest city nearby where pubs and fancy restaurants offer the best treat ever. The perfect mix between relaxation, beaches and fun! Highly recommended!!!


Casa Pavarini is simply AMAZING ! Extremely quiet location, fantastic view, magnificent furniture and decoration, one the most beautiful places I have ever visited and stayed at with my family. And if you ever have the chance to be welcomed by the Casa's owner, then you will realize what the real "Vulcano's welcoming" looks like... Enjoy, without any limit !
