Snorkelling is an excellent way to explore the seas, and scuba diving can be arranged for all levels of ability.

Guest can relax on the solarium and the hammok in the garden. We actually loved our stay there. The house is in the centre of Malfa town, but it is out of external view! You can easily reach all town facilities as restaurants, pharmacy, bars, supermarket and shops. Host very nice. We reccomand this place to taste Salina atmosphere!

Stunning views from the property of bay and other Aeolian Islands . We enjoyed great privacy as the other adjacent properties were largely unoccupied during our stay. We walked, ran and swam everywhere and never needed a taxi beyond bag drop and collection but we enjoy exercise . I think those less action be or with children would require frequent taxis although these are readily available and reasonable in price . The property had all you need for a comfortable stay with a few restaurants just a short walk away. Views are stunning and memorable and there stese nice touches such as decor , balcony and outdoor shower ( in addition to indoor showers of course) . Trek up to Fossa delle Felce was very hot and we never saw a sole up or down. Conservation boat trip from Pecorino de Mare was excellent with ultra friendly and informative hosts . A great location for genuine get away from it all break in hot climate with great coastal line and crystal clear waters .
