Detailed villa description
Inside: accommodation at Posidonia is on two levels. The main floor has a variety of entrances, but for ease of this description we'll start from the French windows that access the centrally positioned open-plan living and dining area from the large shady sea-view terrace that runs along the entire façade of the villa. To the right a door opens onto one of the four bedrooms on this level, a double with en-suite shower room, wonderful sea views and direct access to the main terrace. To the left another door opens into a little hallway, off which are two more bedrooms, a double and a double-twin, each with its own en-suite shower room. The double has great sea views and direct access to the main terrace. At the back of the living and dining area, a door opens into a short corridor, off which is the well-equipped kitchen and a guest bathroom with shower. The kitchen opens out onto a shady side terrace, which has sinks and space for open-air food preparation. Accommodation on this main floor is completed by a guesthouse, home to a twin bedroom with en-suite shower room, accessed via a shady garden terrace to one side of the villa.
Steps lead down from the main terrace to the pool area, whose shady portico provides access to a double bedroom with en-suite shower room and porthole windows looking out to sea. Heading past the pool one comes to a second guesthouse which is home to one twin bedroom and one double-twin bedroom, each with its own en-suite shower room.
Outside: al fresco life at Posidonia centres on two main areas. First is the superbly panoramic, shady terrace that runs along the entire façade of the main floor, offering glorious views out to sea and over the port, castle and town of Lipari. Accessed from the living room, two of the bedrooms and the kitchen (via a side terrace), this is the spot where you will take your meals, relax with a drink in hand, snooze in the afternoon and chat late into the night. A curvaceous flight of steps leads directly from this terrace to the second focal spot: the lovely pool area, which boasts a well-furnished portico with bar, sea views and an extremely inviting, good-sized pool. At one end of the covered main terrace is a panoramic viewing point-cum-solarium which leads in turn to a shady side terrace, past a quiet garden sitting area near a little aviary and on to a flight of steps leading up to the large roof terrace, from where the views are bewitching. If all this weren't enough, a public path leads for a couple of hundred metres from the villa gates down to the seafront below Posidonia. From there one can walk into town in about 15 minutes.
