FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THE VILLAS

How far is the sea from home?

From all the apartments you can reach the sea on foot, enjoying a walk on the typical mule tracks of the island. These routes have an average duration of 20 minutes on foot and are often characterized by moderate slopes. For those who prefer to avoid walking, it is possible to rent scooters or contact a taxi. In this case 5 minutes will be enough. If you want to know the precise distance, you can check out the page of the website dedicated to each apartment, which also includes this information.

Are the villas equipped with linen?

Of course, all apartments are set up for new guests with clean linen, towels. Weekly bed linen change service is provided and included in the price, but the guest can request additional ones as extras whenever he wishes. Remember that towels / mats / beach towels are not provided for the beach; the guests can bring their own or buy them in the island’s shops.

Is there Wi-Fi and TV in the apartments?

By choice, no apartment has neither a television nor Wi-Fi. Filicudi is an island, a distant reality compared to the environment in which we live our everyday lives. Nature reigns untouched and it is possible to feel and experience unique sensations and adventures. This is why we invite our guests to a digital detox, which allows them to reclaim the taste of time and the sounds dictated by nature.

Do mobile phones get a signal?

Filicudi island is a particular place, where mountains and sea dialogue with each other. And this particular configuration creates conditions under which in some places cellphones and smartphones struggle to receive the usual signal. However, this problem is not present in the apartments and in the areas surrounding the villas.

Is there a breakfast service?

Atana was born as a guest house, so it does not have a breakfast service. However, we will be able to show you different solutions to transform breakfast into a new experience. If you prefer to arrange yourself, you can take advantage of the kitchen in each apartment to cook the kind of breakfast you prefer while enjoying the view from your private terrace over the sea.

How do you manage the availability of water in Atana?

Water is a precious asset and in Filicudi even more. In Atana we stock up water once a week with a tanker, so we invite guests to be thrifty in their use. To facilitate responsible behavior, our homes are equipped with timed showers.

What time is check-in and check-out scheduled?

On the day of departure, the apartment must be left categorically by 10.00 am. On the day of arrival, the guest will be accompanied to the house as soon as it is ready and clean, in any case no later than 2.00 pm.
