A charming two floors house with a beautiful sea and sunset view !

The space

The holiday cottage (casa babilonia ) is part of a converted old farmhouse (see the other cottages by clicking on the owner's profile) situated in Pollara, a hamlet on the Island of Salina. The cottages are surrounded by gardens and vineyards and are situated in the center of the hamlet, close to the piazza and the church and 10 minutes wallk from the sea.

“Casa Babilonia” is a two floors house with a large garden with trees, lemons, orange, fig and a solarium. The large shaded patio with reeds and bougainvillea, where you can dine or relax, leads to the kitchen furnished with a comfortable wooden table and all the necessary equipment for cooking. A sofa bed completes the room. A naval staircase allows access to the upper floor. On the ground floor is also located the toilet.
On the first floor there is a large double bedroom and an Eolian terrace with columns and stone seats. You can access to this room from the kitchen or from a staircase on the outside.
The house is oriented towards the sea and enjoys a wonderful panoramic view of the islands of Filicudi and Alicudi and fabulous sunsets.

Franco and Orietta, firstly thank you for opening up your magnificent home to us! We loved every minute of our stay! The sunsets from the dining area were just stunning and will stay with us forever! The apartment had absolutely everything to make our stay comfortable and its simplicity was refreshing! The kitchen so well equipped that we cooked every night for ourselves with the exception of just one! You have been the perfect hosts, and had been so helpful with all our needs, and your invitation for a drink on our last evening was very touching! Whilst brief it was lovely speaking with you both and getting to know a little about you. We only wish we had longer in Pollara and wish our stay could have been for longer! Wishing you both well, and until we meet again! Thank you both!!!!

Franco and Orietta are lovely and excellent hosts. The apartment "Babilionia" was a relaxing, quite and very nice place to be. We fully enjoyed our time in Pollara with Franco and Orietta.

What a beautiful place! Franco and Oriette were so friendly and hospitable. They have a lovely set of two or three apartments set among olive trees, wild fennel and a couple of lemon trees. And a view to die for. Pollara is on the western side of Salina, one of the 7 Aeolian islands. It is a very small village, with access only by a very steep road. It overlooks a wide bay with views of the islands Allicudi and Fillicudi. There is a small bar and a (seasonally open) restaurant... If you want peace and quiet and a breath-taking view this is the place for you.

La casa è molto bella, gli spazi gradevoli, funzionali e ben pensati per aprofittare al massimo di quest'angolo dell'isola, dei suoi panorami e dei tramonti. Ne conserviamo delle immagini indimenticabili. Grazie a Orietta e Franco per l'accoglienza e la gentilezza. A presto

La maison proposée par Orietta est idéalement placée sur l'île de Salina. Nichée face à la mer dans le hameau paisible de Pollara, la maison a la saveur de l'authentique. Nous rêvions d'un dépaysement, ce fut vraiment réussi et chaque coucher du soleil fut un rendez-vous magique depuis la terrasse. L'intérieur est confortable et la décoration exprime la fraîcheur et la délicatesse, à l'image des propriétaires... qui eux sont discrets, prévenants et particulièrement sympathiques. C'est donc un pied-à-terre parfait pour découvrir les îles éoliennes et c'est une étape Airbnb qui ne s'oublie pas tant le lieu, la maison et ses hôtes s'accordent pour laisser un sentiment de bien-être.

Casa Babilonia è un piccolo angolo di paradiso. Arredata con cura e gusto, mantenendo pienamente lo stile eoliano, permette di calarsi immediatamente nello spirito dell'isola abbandonando ogni pensiero. Franco e Orietta sono persone splendide che ci hanno accompagnato con riserbo e gentilezza alla scoperta delle storie dell'isola e della sua natura. Grazie a Franco e Orietta e a casa Babilonia per averci regalato questa magia.
