Villa Patty is a wonderful villa in Aeolian architectural style surrounded by wide patios and terraces and a mediterranean garden with lemon and olive trees, situated in Fossetta, a fraction of Pecorini next to the Church on the south side of Filicudi Island. (check the map of the island showing the exact position of the house).
The patios and terraces follow the Aeolian architectural style with white columns and masonry benches, named "bisuoli" in Sicilian dialect.

IMG 7718-casa-patty-filicudi-2015 1200px webFrom the villa you have a wonderful view of the Mediterranean sea and the coast of Sicily. From the terrace on the roof of the villa, the view is 360 degrees on the valley that surrounds the house. 
In summer, the night is clear and from the terraces you can admire the clear sky studded with stars, the Milky Way that moves slowly from east to west, and many shooting stars are visible thanks to the minimum light pollution of the island.

In the evenings by the clear sky the sparkle of lights of the coast of Sicily and the silhouette of Mount Etna offer a breathtaking spectacle.

Villa Patty is a villa that can sleep 6 or 7 people. However 4 people is the perfect number. 6 in the case of families with children or groups of friends.

It has a master bedroom with double bed, and bathroom with shower room.

Between the master bedroom and the kitchen there is a living room with two couches in masonry, which at night can be used as beds. In the same room there is also a mezzanine with a double bed. The living room leads to a second bathroom, equipped with a comfortable shower, a toilet, a bidet, sink and washing machine.

Adjacent to this room a sliding door leads to the kitchen, which also has a door onto the terrace. It is divided into a kitchenette with appliances and a breakfast area, where you can add one or two beds instead of the table. In summer the whole communal living, breakfast, lunches and dinners will take place on the wide terrace in front, enjoying the atmosphere of the night with a sky full of stars and the view of the Sicilian coast which is reflected on the sea.

The kitchen is equipped with an electric oven and a microwave oven.

The house in total has two bathrooms both with shower toilet bidet and washbasin.

The house has two entrances. One to the south (at a distance of a few meters there is our private parking and exclusive for guests of the villa) and one to the north, where a short private path takes you to the asphalt road that leads from one side to the church and Pecorini on the other hand it leads to the Canalel, the  "Rocca di Ciauli", and then to other areas of the island and to Porto.

In the terrace there is a barbecue ready for roasting all the fish that will be fishing, or you could easily buy directly from the fishermen at the port.

The location of the villa is strategic: in the middle of everything, but in a peaceful hamlet.

From the upper terrace looking north you have this life (it is a panoramic photo of about 180 °):

Looking south you see the Mediterranean Sea and the northern coast of Sicily, with Etna volcano emerging through the clouds on clear days.

And here's a photo of the south side of the island centered on Pecorini.
Looking at just below the church, which is at the center approximately in beige, there is a group of houses, the right of which there is another close to green bushes: our houses are there. Exactly vertically over the © symbol of the caption.

The house is a 10-minute walk from the sea on the ancient path between the Church of Pecorini and Pecorini Mare beach. It is 300 meters from the sea by linear distance, 600 meters along the path.
With a 20-minute walk you arrive - following the trails - to the beach "of Tips", in Capo Graziano and up to the prehistoric village open behind the beach.
From there in 10 minutes you walk you will arrive at Porto.
Villa Patty, with a quiet walk of 7 minutes flat you will find many typical restaurants and pizzerias.

Map of the villa

Pianta di Villa Patty a Filicudi

Note that the room labeled "den" in the bottom left of the map is not part of the villa and it is not for rental. It shares with the house "Patty" only the south entrance, and it is under the level of the terrace of the villa.

In the back of the villa there is a large terrace with a small garden and the typical bisuoli that is the masonry benches.

As mentioned earlier, climbing on the roof leads to a further terrace with breathtaking views.


The kitchen, with microwave, stove with four burners, fridge. Note the antique wood oven that now is only for decorative purposes.

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.
