Filicudi and Alicudi are the secret Aeolus islands that the Italians keep for themselves

is swayed by the promise of tons of boutique hotels, high-end restaurants , celebrity sightings, and trendy crowds visiting the Aeolian Islands tend to congregate in the east – more specifically on the islands of Lipari, Salina and Panaria – while Phili in the west Cudi and Alicudi are wild. Locals, well-known Italians, and a handful of creatives who have fallen for the indelible authenticity that quietly exists here make the most of this remote and unspoiled natural resource.

In Filicudi, the villages are connected by ancient mule tracks, just a few minutes walk from each other. Watching the sunrise and sunset from your patio is usually the main activity, as you spend most of your afternoon jumping into the sea from the rocks and bays of the island, or with a granita in a picturesque fishing village Cool down. Eating out means rubbing shoulders with local fishermen at one of the island’s few mom-and-pop shops. Alicudi is as rustic as its big sister, but a little wilder. With no cars, donkeys transport goods on the island, and to get anywhere requires hiking up the island’s volcanic cones. You won’t find any ATMs or street lights, and the lack of restaurants means the best dinner seats in town are at the homes of the island’s most popular fishermen – you’re lucky to get an invite. Twin Islands may not be for fashion creatives, but their raw quality is what makes them so amazing.

Below is a guide to Filicudi and Alicudi.

Where to stay

Don’t expect to find a bunch of modern hotels on either island, but Filicudi does have some small boutique hotels or guesthouses that still exist completely with the spirit of the island. The most fascinating was created by Italian gallerist Sergio Casoli from 092 and features a restaurant and five eclectic rooms with views of Sicily and Etre Panorama of the volcano. The most common form of accommodation is a private villa, available for rent on various rental sites including Airbnb.
