Hotel Mea Lipari

A boutique hotel set in the hills above Lipari town and the island’s bustling port.

Overlooking the busy bay of Marina Lunga and the 15th-Century Castle Lipari, this pretty hotel is an intimate retreat on the largest of the Aeolian Islands, Lipari. The Mea has a typical Mediterranean style with Moorish architecture and design, fresh white exterior walls and cream décor in the interior spaces. The real highlights of the hotel are the hillside setting and the resulting views of the coast and harbour and the Tyrrhenian Sea. Your days could easily be spent in or around the pools – one of which is a hydro-massage pool – however it’s well worth heading out to explore the island, or at least the pretty nearby town where you can visit the Aeolian Archaeological Museum, the Lipari Cathedral and the 16th-Century fortifications.

The hotel’s restaurant Chimera has the same beautiful views of the town and bay and you can enjoy your meals on the delightful terrace, or in the dining room. The cuisine served is inspired by local tastes and fresh produce. Enjoy intricately presented plates that are modern twists on traditional Sicilian dishes. Just a 15 minute walk away, you’ll find the cafés and restaurants of Lipari town, perfect if you’re looking for a change of scenery.

There are just 37 rooms here so it will never feel crowded. Each room is individually decorated, with light tones and accent colours. The rooms have either an interior courtyard garden view or sea views. The Double Classic Gardenview Rooms are a fine choice, however as with any hotel that has views such as this, we recommend choosing one of the Classic, Superior or Deluxe Seaview Rooms. The latter feature beautiful wrought-iron, four-poster beds and a covered terrace.
