About Marco Saltalamacchia


I am from Sicily, but just in the summer 1979 I landed for the first time in Lipari, in the company of my current husband ( whose family originally come from this island ) and I fell in love at first sight.

During all these years, we have travelled a lot for work and have lived in various European countries, experience that has allowed me to improve my language skills.

Since then I returned to this place every single year, during my summer vacation, for long or short periods, together with my family, my children, for whom this place has become a real reference point.

Over time we decided, together with other members of our family, to invest in this wonderful island. We have expanded the original family property, acquiring and renovating several neighbouring houses that currently make up what today we call Borgo San Gaetano.

BSG is a set of six of apartments and small independent houses, gathered around a green garden with trees and Mediterranean plants. The properties overlook the crystal-clear waters of the beach of Acquacalda Lipari which offers one of the finest views of the island.

Today I live with my family in Milan, but I go back frequently to Lipari to take care of our little village.


This is and will always be a magical place, where the sands of time runs slow, letting you get away from the hectic pace of everyday life, where each sunset is unique and each dawn surprise.

That must be why I unfailingly keep coming back, every summer since 37 years!

Why Marco Saltalamacchia chose Lipari

We have created this little paradise for our family and for our children, because they have their own point of reference, being now citizens of the world.

We decided to rent out the houses in periods when we do not we use it personally. That's why our guests always have the feeling of being at home, with all the conveniences.

What makes this villa unique

This is and will always be a magical place, where the sands of time runs slow, letting you get away from the hectic pace of everyday life, where each sunset is unique and each dawn surprise.

That must be why I unfailingly keep coming back, every summer since 37 years!

Viva la dolce vita!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to the island of Lipari to be welcomed by the wonderful housekeeper Gemma and her husband Michael, they could not have done more for us. Strongyle is in the most magnificent setting boasting views of Stromboli, Salina and Panarea-it is literally on the beach. We felt like we had died and gone to heaven during the week that we spent there. I was 6 months pregnant when we arrived so we were looking for somewhere to relax and chillout and boy did we find it here! You can watch the sunrise while lying in bed and the sunset while sipping an aperativo on the terrace and at nightime one is treated to a natural fireworks display from the volcano on Stromboli-it is a feast for the eyes. Gabriella, the owner was wonderful to deal with and we really felt very well cared for throughout our stay. The photos do not do this place justice-it really is an extremely special place to stay-with a wonderful local restaurant serving the best bounty from the sea-we shall be back to our Liparian retreat bambino in tow! Viva la dolce vita!

Meeresrauschen pur

  • 5 of 5

Wer die Einsamkeit liebt, der ist hier richtig! Der Standort ist wirklich genial, man hat ständig das Meer im Ohr und kann sogar vom Schlafzimmer aufs Meer schauen. Die Wohnung ist groß und gut ausgestattet. Die Betreuung durch die Vermieterin war sehr liebevoll und freundlich und wir haben uns dort rundherum wohl gefühlt.

Traumurlaub in Villa Strongyle

  • 5 of 5

Meine Frau und ich verbrachten traumhafte 3 Wochen in einerwunderschönen, hervorragend ausgestatteten Villa!

Der Empfang durch die Ehefrau des Hausmeisterehepaars war sehr herzlich!

Die Vermieterin Gabriella (hilfsbereit, spricht deutsch, sehr freundlich) war bei Fragen telefonisch gut erreichbar.

Die sehr große Terrasse bietet einen fantastischen Blick auf die vorgelagerten Inseln Salina, Panarea und Stromboli! Tolle Sonnenuntergänge!

Ein Gasgrill ermöglichte uns sehr tolle Grillabende!

Nur 20 m zum Steinstrand ermöglichten traumhafte Schnorchelstunden zu jeder Tageszeit!

Mit dem Bus von der nahegelegenen Bushaltestelle sind die umliegenden Orte komfortabel erreichbar! Ausgiebige Wanderungen direkt vom Quartier aus möglich!

Mit wenigen Worten: Ein Traumurlaub in einem traumhaft schönem Quartier!

Für uns 2 Personen war dies eine großzügige, neuwertig ausgestattete Ferienwohnung mit herrlicher Terrasse. Im Mai, d. h. zum Beginn der touristischen Saison, war es dort ruhig. Die Wohnungen um uns herum waren nicht belegt. Die Busverbindung nach Lipari war zuverlässig. Die Vermieterin Frau C. (hilfsbereit, spricht deutsch, sehr freundlich) war anfangs sogar selbst vor Ort und ansonsten bei Fragen telefonisch gut erreichbar. Das Ein- und Auschecken waren korrekt und professionell organisiert. Vielen Dank! Wir empfehlen die Ferienwohnung sehr gerne weiter.

- Alloggio molto confortevole

- Contesto meraviglioso: splendida vista mare e delle altre isole dell'arcipelago eoliano (Panarea, Stromboli e Salina); località estremamente tranquilla e lontana dal traffico di Lipari; spiaggia sotto casa; tutti i servizi a disposizione sull'isola (mercati,supermercati e negozi, situati a Lipari Centro o altre località) raggiungibili con auto propria (15 minuti) o in autobus; Proprietari estremamente gentili ed ospitali.

In estrema sintesi, direi tutto molto bello!

Reaching the Aeolian Islands:

The nearest airport are Naples (NAP) Catania (CTA), Reggio Calabria (REG) or Palermo (PMO).

From Naples fast hydrofoil connections are available as well ferries, should you want to have your car.

From Reggio Calabria and Catania an helicopter shuttle is available (for example : Air Panarea).

Direct hydrofoil connections from Reggio Calabria or Palermo (Siremar, Snav, Ustica Lines).

Bus or taxi connection from Catania to Milazzo harbour, (the nearest sicilian harbour) where many sea connections are available.

Our recommendation: flying to Catania and let us organizing you a shuttle service to Lipari.

As you're on a volcanic island Nature and Sea will be the main attractions but not the only one. Since there is actually a lot to do your final choice will depend upon your personal hobbies or preferences.

Trekking : exploring the old tracks throughout the islands or discovering the volcanoes and experiencing a guided night tour to watch the unique natural show of a night eruption on top of Stromboli.

Sea Sports/Diving Centers: you pick one! Just renting a boat or an inflatable boat for a day cruise or joining one of many different organised day tours on comfortable yachts. Are you a experienced fisherman? Night fishing and enjoying the catch of the day instant fried onboard on a fisherboat will be the right thing for you then!

Culture: the "Centro Studi Eoliano" organizes many cultural events. Among them, the most important one is the Cinema Festival - Premio Efesto.

The Aeolian Archaeological Museum ( Museo Archeologico Eoliano) represents one of the richest in the world for its findings. It will take you through the 5.000 years of the Aeolian History from the Neolithics up today.

Excellent foods and fine wines are a must in Italy and Lipari makes no exception. Seafood is clearly dominant but not only. The country tradition has its specials too. Restaurants are everywhere and you will have just to create your personal Food & Wine Experience Tour.

Wine is special, since Ulysses' time. The sweet malvasia grapes have been cultivated again and now the Malvasia production has reached new height of excellence.

Night life, Discos and pubs are at hands.
