The seaside resort of Canneto, just 5 km from Acquacalda, has shops, supermarkets, cafés, restaurants, a pharmacy, a bank, a post office and a playground.
For guests without their own car or rental car, Canneto can be reached with the public bus service, and there is a stop just behind the hotel.
The wide beach and the marina where you can catch a boat to the other islands make this historic village the liveliest resort area of Lipari, and a great place from which to begin exploring the Aeolian archipelago.
