The B&B Casa Monti-de Luca is located in the district of Rocca de Ciaule ( Filicudi Island) about 60 metres from the main street that links all the other neighbourhoods of the island. The de Biase Monti de Luca family purchased this house in the 1980s and it still retains its original structure in the art nouveau style which gives it a particular atmosphere. There are three rooms, two doubles and a triple, all with private bathrooms, a reading room at the top of the house with a breathtaking panoramic view from Messina to Cefalù from the terrace. The terraced garden is the pride of the house; a collection of rare cacti and tropical plants provides an atmosphere of relaxation after a day on the beach. The rooms have been decorated with furniture and objects from the private collection of the Piersanti Monti de Luca family, who founded a museum in the city of Matelica, in the province of Macerata already in the 1700s.
