In prime position for the Aeolian Islands’ technicolour sunsets and the shooting flares from Stromboli, the Hotel Principe di Salina is set amidst the fabulous lush foliage of the greenest of the Aeolian archipelago.

 

Views from the infinity pool, the hotel terraces and the restaurant are no less spectacular.

 

The style is typically Mediterranean featuring white walls, ceramic tiles and large terraces covered with a cane ceiling and wooden beams.

All have an outdoor terrace: the top-floor Superior Rooms have sea views while the Classic Rooms overlook the hotel’s garden.

Dining

The views accompany every meal, the kitchen is led by chef and nutrician Silvana and the menu features healthy options inspired by Sicilian traditional cuisine.

Map

The Hotel Principe is situated a few steps from the centre of Malfa with bars and restaurants. From the port, a beautiful winding coastal road leads from the port in Santa Marina to Malfa.  Salina is only a small island, regular buses are available and you may just fancy hire a small car just for a day to explore at your own leisure.  Salina, located to the north-west of Lipari, is the second largest Aeolian Islands and also the second most populated, with a year-round community of about 2000 people. In common with the other Aeolian Islands, the island’s origins are volcanic and it is characterized by two volcanic cones: Monte Fossa delle Felci (Ferns) and Monte dei Porri (Leeks), the two highest peaks of the archipelago. Keen walkers can take paths through the volcanic landscape to the mountain of Fossa delle Felci, a nature reserve with breathtaking views of the peninsula and Mount Etna, from a height of 982m. The island's main activities are the cultivation of grapes, olives and capers and it is here that the famous sweet wine Malvasia is produced.

This is the third occasion that Antonio has organised an Italian holiday for me. As it was a Birthday celebration involving a party of 10, the arrangements were complex, involving a villa, guides and attendance at the Palio on July 2nd. Without exception everything went exactly as planned. The recommended villa on the Montestigliano Estate, south west of Siena, was wonderful. Our guide made sure we had a full understanding of the history and culture of the Palio which meant that, with a spectacular view over the Campo from the apartment booked by Antonio, we were able to appreciate the event that much more. We shall certainly be going back to Italy with Expertoitaly.read more

Antonio with his meticulous planning and caring service has been solely responsible for the best Italian holidays we have had. His ability to offer excellent hotel accommodation which provides for every need and requirement is second to none . Hotels that are not main stream , that provide high quality of service in excellent locations are one of Antonio’s strength. It’s great to have a provider that know and understands his market.

July 2018 _________________________________ Have just completed another 10 day holiday arranged by Antonio at Expert to Italy. We went with Antonio's suggestion and spent 2 days at Matera and then the remainder in Pisciotta in the Cilento. Matera was amazing and felt completely different to anywhere else we have been in Italy. We loved Pisciotta and the hotel was wonderful with lovely owners who were great at suggesting things to do. We visited a buffalo farm, a vinyard and tooks boats to isolated coves with lovely clear water. All arrangements were absolutely faultless. We would never have found such lovely places without Antonio! 2016 _________________________________ We have just returned from a fantastic holiday suggested no arranged by ExpertTo Italy. Once again the organisation by Antonio was flawless and everything worked perfectly. We spent 5 nights by lake Maggiore and 3 in Cogne in the Italian Alps. Both hotels and locations were fantastic - particularly the Bellvue in Cogne. Please see trip advisor if interested in the hotels as I will give a more specific review there - I'm not a fanatic reviewer but both really deserve it. We have used this company for the past 5 years and Antonio seems to have a real gift for finding fantastic hotels and matching locations to his clients. I would not usually put the level of trust in anyone to arrange holidays for me that I have with Antonio but he has delivered every time and I can unreservedly recommend his services. Italy is a beautiful country with huge variety - if you describe what you like to Antonio and let him make suggestions then you will not be disappointed. Very definitely 5 stars from me. So - Antonio and team, please keep it up! Jonread more

Antonio delivered more than expected! Our family of four stayed at two beautiful villa's on the Amalfi Coast. Both of the locations were top class. Antonio provided excellent service and was always available if we had questions about the details of our trip. He was easy to work with and we would recommend his services to others traveling to Italy.read more
