Hospitable Aeolian Islands charmer with views to match

Set among Malvasia vineyards on the lush Aeolian island of Salina, Principe di Salina’s dazzling white walls and cane-shaded terraces are all imprinted with that Mediterranean island-in-the-sun feel.

Know It All

Hit the spot
In Malfa, on the Aeolian isle of Salina.

Come here for...
● Affordable charm in the Aeolian isles. ● Peace and quiet in spades. ● Hospitable and friendly owners.

There's a large outdoor pool and thermal-water jacuzzi, extensive terrace areas with views of Stromboli and a restaurant.

Good to know
The journey here is part of the fun – so allow plenty of time to get here from the mainland.


12 rooms

Special features
Rooms open out onto panoramic terraces with fabulous sea views. They are simply furnished but comfortable, and all have satellite TV, minibar, safe, direct-dial telephones and aircon.  Bathrooms come with showers, not baths.

Pillow talk
There's little to choose between the rooms – and all have lovely Mediterranean views.

Eat & Drink

Dining in
Every table comes with sea views at Principe di Salina’s restaurant, where you’ll dine al fresco on warm nights.  Look forward to tartare di tonno and risotto al finocchietto selvatico, plus other typically Aeolian and Mediterranean dishes. 

Breakfast is served until 10am. Expect locally-made pastries, preserves and fruit salads.

Room service
You can have breakfast brought to your room.


See & Do
Take a boat ride around Salina or zip across to some of the other Aeolian islands by hydrofoil. You can climb the volcano on neighbouring Stromboli, dip in the sulphurous mudbaths on Vulcano, or get all shopped out in Lipari. 

Go snorkelling and swimming, take a picnic up to Salina’s mountain nature reserve, with its abundant myrtle and heather, visit a local wine-producing farm or explore rustic roads by bike or scooter. Watch the sunset from the magnificent beach at Pollara, memorably captured in the movie Il Postino.

Soak in the thermal sea water jacuzzi for an added sense of well being.

Diary Dates
Salina’s annual caper festival – with plenty of exuberant drinking and dancing – takes over Pollara’s village square.

Late October
Join in the merrymaking at Salina’s autumn wine fest.
