"Antico Rustico del Postino" in Salina Pollara Island, Lipari Islands,in a dominant and super panoramic position directly overlooking the sea, with one of the most beautiful sea views in the whole of the Mediterranean, the Antico Rustico del Postino is a property that is extremely rare on the market and is a safe investment property.
It can be seen from the sea, inserted between the two rocky ridges that frame one of the most beautiful and most famous bays in the Mediterranean, the "Antico Rustico del Postino" gives us intact the memory of an island of other times.
It was in fact the mid-nineteenth century when the stone warehouse was built to facilitate the inhabitants of Pollara in the procurement of food and merchandise of all kinds. At that time, to reach the cluster of houses located in the caldera of the volcano, the only access road was a steep path on the back of a mule which made the transport of any goods very difficult and tiring.
So it was decided to build, a few meters from the beach, a place of conservation of goods that would have an easy landing from the sea. For years abandoned to the elements, in 2000 the Antico rustico del Postino was bought by a lover of the island, who, following a careful conservative restoration, made it one of the most extreme and fascinating constructions of the Aeolian Islands and of the entire basin. of the Mediterranean.
Without electric light, only equipped with candles and gas lamps (even if the electrical system is already set up): it would be enough to install two solar panels. The water comes by falling from the public aqueduct.
Il Rustico del Postino is built on two floors for a total of about 35 square meters: on the lower floor the double bedroom with the toilet, on the upper floor a kitchenette with three burners with ceramic top and a gas fridge, two single beds. and a small window with a breathtaking view of the island of Filicudi.
This property is a stone refuge and exudes a primordial charm: the view over the bay, the richness of its sunsets, the sound of the waves (the same ones that Massimo Troisi recorded for his "master" in the unforgettable film THE POSTMAN) make it still today a place of rare beauty. The two rooms are connected by the ancient external staircase carved into the rock.
