We were very warmly welcomed at the NerOssidiana Apartments by Giovanna, who helped us with bookings and information all week. The apartments are very comfortable, just like the photos. I loved watching the Stromboli volcano smoking and beautiful sunsets from our terrace. Acquacalda is a small village, perfect for a quiet beach holiday. The local cafés have fresh tasty food and it is accessible by the local bus which runs about once an hour and stops right in front of the apartments. Lipari and Canetto are a short ride away, as are several other beaches. We loved how quiet and relaxing everything was. If you are looking for a tranquil escape and very friendly service, this is the place for you.
Loved it! Residence NerO is in Acquacalda - about 20 minutes from the main port town of Lipari. Aquacalda is quiet beach community that is welcoming and relaxing. There are a few places within walking distance for breakfast and dinner (the options are limited but all good, especially the lunch/dinner place that is directly on the beach). You will need a rental car if you stay here, and probably if you visit Lipari no matter where you stay. There are good rental options that you can find online in the town of Lipari right near the ferry and a reservation is essential. Giovanna, the manager, is wonderful. I read some reviews involving cleanliness issues - the large 2 bedroom apartment we stayed in was immaculate in all respects. It looks like the “residence” has 15 or so apartments and mostly seem to be 1BRs or efficiencies, but our group of 4 stayed in one of the 2nd floor larger apartments. Nice views of the ocean right in front of the facility. Note, there is no front desk or restaurant or concierge here. If you want early coffee, ie, before 8 am when one of the nearby cafe opens, you will need to make it yourself. There is a small but well stocked market a 5 minute walk down the Main Street and we stocked up there on milk and sugar and espresso for the Biglietti in the room (NOTE to GIOVANNA - a larger one would be welcomed for an apartment this size) and a few other provisions like bread and cheese. This worked out fine. You should be aware that there is no daily maid service to my knowledge (if this is important, ask and perhaps it can be provided) but the apartment we were in had a washer/dryer. One of the bedrooms had nowhere to put clothes - ie, a luggage rack for a suitcase, or a closet over even hookson the wall and this was bothersome - but the other bedroom had a decent closet. With these observations, I still recommend RNO highly and I would definitely return. …
We stayed for 5 days in this wonderful, well clean apartment, with 2 astonishing sea view, for 6 people. We found everything clean, starting from the kitchen to the bathrooms and the rooms. The apartment is located in a very cozy street in Acquacalda, really close to the sea, so it's perfect for the people who want to chill out without being disturbed. We didn't have any kind of problem and the owner of the apartments was really friendly and available to give us any information we needed or to solve any kind of problem. I think we didn't find someone so easy-going and friendly before as her. In order to spend your vacation in Lipari, i really recommend this place, without any doubt. I'll come back there for sure, if I'll have another possibility to visit this island.
Amazing place. The apartments are really nice, clean & spacious. The location is fantastic ... right in front of a pebble beach with crystal clear water and amazing views. The host Giovanna is so welcoming that you immediately feel at home. She is very helpful and always ready to offer advice with a smile. A big thank you to Giovanna who was exceptional. Also the cafe next door offers delicious granitas and brioche from where you can relax and take in the view.
Very clean and spacious apartment just steps from Acquacalda beach in Lipari. Enjoyed my stay there greatly. The staff was friendly; Giovanna in particular was not only highly professional but also welcoming and most helpful with sightseeing tips and transportation options. I highly recommend NerOssidiana.
