From the patio along three steps you get to a second panoramic terrace, at the center of which there's a huge cactus plant with an age of over 35 years, which gives its name to the villa, and invites the guests to rest in the afternoon in his shadow.

In the garden next to the house you will find: an almond tree, a carob tree, a cactus, laurel trees, giant, sage, rosemary, a lemon tree, a medlar tree ... and so on ...

Here is a picture of a 180-degree terrace on a winter day (so without summer outdoor furniture).

The villa has two entrances, a north one on the pecorini-canale foot trail and another entrance on the west side that opens onto the garden and leads to a private and exclusive clearing  which is easily reached by car or on foot via a short road which leads to the main - and only - paved road of the island of Filicudi. A pricate parking is important because without a private car park in summer you can not land in a car in Filicudi!

Cactus home. This is the first of two large terraces in front of the villa, both facing south and overlooking the Mediterranean Sea and the Sicily.

The typical day's guest house Cactus takes place in this panoramic terrace lulled by the breeze from the sea, watching the northern coast of Sicily which is reflected on the sea waves, and at night the Milky Way and the moon that cross the sky from east to west, while the voices of the fishermen on the sea surface distant echo.
