Capofaro, Locanda & Malvasia
Located on Salina, which is the greenest of Italy's Aeolian islands this offers a truly stunning idyll. Atop a cliff and nestled within the vineyards of Tasca d'Almerita you can gaze out across to Europe's most active volcano. You are close to the island's single road (although you cannot see it) but the hotel also has a shuttle down to the port; however don't be too sure you will want to venture out too often - this really is relaxing stay which makes it hard to venture out. The 27 rooms are all identically appointed in white washed typical Aeolian style with terraces perfect for relaxing and sipping wine on as the sun goes down. The property offers a freshwater pool, massage pavilion and if you wanting to explore guided expert hikes of the volcano Stromboli can be arranged or perhaps a boat trip or cooking class.
