Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Malfa - Casa Arturo

The beach is only a few steps away. 4 sleeps, salina, malfa, punto scario

No other house in Salina has such a stunning position as Casa Arturo. The terrace offers a stunning view of the sea, the beach and the ‘faraglioni’ - the splendid volcanic rocks of the bay ‘Punta Scario’. A path leads directly to the beach. Salina is the greenest and perhaps the most beautiful of the seven Aeolian Islands, Salina offers restaurants, beaches, villages and authentic island life. Casa Arturo is close to the charming town of Malfa and 4 km of the bay of Pollara made famous by the film “Il Postino”.

The house consists of 2 floors (tot. 90 m2) and has two entrances. The ground floor consists of a living room, a dining table, bathroom with shower, toilet and bidet, and a small kitchen. An internal stairway leads to the first floor and on to two double bedrooms with quiet a low ceiling (2 meters). Both bedrooms has sea view. Note that the access to the second bedroom is via the first bedroom. The panoramic terrace has a set of table and chairs.

Getting to the Aeolian Islands:: Salina can be reached by ferry and hydrofoil from Sicily, Naples or Reggio Calabria. Milazzo (40 km west of Messina) is the main departure point for the Aeolian Islands. Ferries and hydrofoils leave daily and stop in several islands. It takes 1hr 30 minutes to reach Salina by hydrofoil (with Ustica Lines) and 3hr 40 minutes by ferry. In Salina ferries arrive in the harbours of Rinella or Santa Marina di Salina. Cars and mopeds can be rented here. It is possible to book a transfer with into Sicily from the harbour to the house (25 euro) and then rent a moped in Malfa. Please note that ferries are not always departing in the evening. Therefore we advice guests to book a flight that arrive early in Sicily or the day before the rental starts. The updated timetable is available on the website of the carriers companies.

(To know the website, please, do not hesitate to contact the owner).

About Salina: Salina is home to a wide variety caves and submerged volcanic craters. Salina is the most fertile of the Aeolian Islands and famous for its capers and the sweet Malvasia wine. Salina is not as crowded as Lipari or Volcano and less fashionable then Panarea, but boasts beautiful nature, excellent restaurants and shops. A bus service connects the villages and the most beautiful sites on the island. Cars and mopeds are available for rent in the main villages. There are excellent opportunities for walking. For example to Capofaro (lighthouse) that is set on the north coast of Salina and boasts stunning views of Panarea and Stromboli (on a clear night it can be possible to see its eruptions). The inactive volcanoes Monte Fossa delle Felci and Monte dei Porri gave the island its original Greek name 'Didyme' (meaning twins) The conical mountains are 965 and 860 metres high and provide excellent walking.

ENCHANTING

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 2 weeks in November in this magical house and it is a cold day in February in NYC now and I am DREAMING about this house. It certainly cast a complete spell over me. Peaceful,lovely- for days all I could do was lie in bed and read and watch the sea outside the bedroom window and listen to the gentle rolling of the smooth rocks on the beach below as the waves broke on the shore. We cooked, read, relaxed, swam. We watched Stromboli send up it's steam daily. Morning jaunts into the charming village was a daily routine and EVERYONE was lovely and accomodating! We rented a scooter and toured around the island - a great place to explore. I I will certainly return and will not rest until I DO!

There was NO reason ever to leave this incredible house!

Romantic and beautiful!

Seaside on the isle of Salina

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house, overlooking Spiaggia Punto Scario on the edge of the town of Malfa. Incredible, uninterrupted views

of the sea, and eastward views of the islands of Panarea and smoldering Stromboli. We loved sitting on the porch and enjoying a homemade lunch or dinner - or just sitting and looking out at the beautiful colors of the facing rock cliffs and surrounding sea. The sound of the waves at night lull you to sleep. We're already thinking about a return next year!

Great place - if well kept for & properly cleaned

  • 3 of 5

5 stars for the fantastic Location, great for reaching the beach. Simple house (which we knew and was fine for us) which could be really nice if better kept for. 1 star for the lousy cleaning in the beginning (you had to clean the windows yourself if we wanted to see through, we needed to clean the sink in the shower if we wanted to have no floods in the bath etc.). Also very little equipment for a self catering family, we had to buy a few things to be able to manage.

Four stars because of the AMAZING view - house maintenance is necessary

  • 4 of 5

I'll sum it up by saying that this is possibly one of the best views on the island.

However, as a visitor you must be prepared for it being very rustic. Market is nearby but the walk is pretty long to carry many things. For three nights we were only provided with one roll of toilet paper. No paper towels, no dish soap, etc. The bath towels are about the size of a kitchen towel and the shower curtain was moldy. We also had a flea problem in the bed. We were met by a woman in a nearby parking lot who did not speak English but luckily my husband speaks Italian or that would have been very tough.

On a positive note, the outside deck is gorgeous and we spent 90% of our time out there. The rocky beach below is just wonderful with snacks and cocktails.

We would gladly visit the house again but would strongly advise the owners to provide a bit more in the way of furnishings and to make this home just a bit more upscale and just charge a bit higher price per night.

Beautiful location & house. Shame about the fleas

  • 2 of 5

The house is beautiful, in a unique location and has all the potential to be one of the most exotic and romantic vacation stays offered. It is near a small village where you can have all of your holiday needs met; from a supermarket, deli, restaurant to a spa.

This idilic holiday option is ruined by the lack of upkeep from the agency. The house is dirty (the windows hadn´t been cleaned in a year, the toilet brush didn´t have a container and lay on the bathroom floor...), the facilities and amenities lack substance (there are no real cooking utensils, the over in really a toaster grill oven...), the lighting doesn´t really light. However, in my opinion this is bearable, at the end of the day you can clean the house yourself, however having bed fleas is, to me completely unacceptable. It is what makes a dream holiday become a nightmare. And that is what happened.

I have reached out to the agency and have yet to receive any form of response from them.

There are plenty of other location on the island, and in fact in the same village, that I am sure will not leave you with welts all over your body and a need to take antibiotics for ten days.

Owner's Response: We are really really sorry. The cleaning lady states that she cleaned very well the house before your arrival. We just had someone checked the house and no fleas were found. Our local reference states that you might have confounded fleas with tiny mosquitos, that are common in Salina. Mosquitos ("papalei") that small that you don't see see them but they generally find the lower parts of the body, legs and feet.

Picturesque, stunning views, perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This house made for a perfect vacation for us. So relaxing! We cooked all our meals there, spent tranquil nights by the small fireplace with the doors open listening to the surf. We walked daily to town for vegetables, wine, cheeses etc. and enjoyed sitting on the veranda looking out at the beautiful sea. There is no internet or TV which we loved! Take a break! Bring some music and some spices and have a very special week with a friend or spouse. Highly, highly recommended rental. You'll never forget it! We loved it! It was even better than we hoped it would be. For us, it was a perfect vacation in every way. Thankyou to the owners for sharing this remarkable house on the cliff of paradise. Russell.....

Casa arturo is in the picturesque town of Malfa, which distances 7 km from the ferry ports of Rinella and from Santa Marina. The bay at Pollara (where several scenes of Il Postino was filmed) distances 4 km of Malfa and is one of the most splendid pieces of coastline of Sicily.

Other Activities: perfect base for exploring the other Aeolian Islands
