It's wonderful to wake up to the utter tranquillity that characterizes a stay on Filicudi—especially if you happen to be greeting the day at this hotel, set above the tiny port. It commands fabulous views of sea and sky from its flower-filled terrace. Guest rooms are small but adequate, and kept clean and tidy by the friendly family staff, most of whom only speak Italian. The cooking, usually focused on the day's catch, is quite good. Arrange ahead of time to be collected
at the port.
