“A wonderful escape”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2012

Staying in Residence Al Belvedere Salina, we experienced a great and relaxing time in May / June 2012.

Francesca, the owner of the residence is local and tries to pass on the family and local eolian atmosphere to her guests. A good example of how this looks like is reflected in the breakfast, where only home made marmelades are served. The beautiful mirrors in the bathrooms are made by Francescas father, and by the way, the whole compound was build by the family, which can be seen in many details. To be mentioned: even though the residence has a family touch, we didn´t miss any comfort we expected in this class.

The only downside of the place is its location, as it´s situated quite remotely in the village of Leni, without many shops or restaurants nearby. However, having said this, I also have to say that we haven´t relaxed that well and had so much fun reading books for a long time. The price for peace in this case is a little remoteness. As it was exactly the peace and time for relaxation we were looking for, we would definetely visit Francesca again.

All in all a place we can highly recommend!

What a wonderful hotel and what a lovely owner! Francesca and her family run a place of utter peace and tranquillity, with sunny terraces surrounded by flowering hillsides and an endless blue sea. Francesca's homemade jams are legendary already; she serves them for breakfast with homemade tartlets and cakes on tables adorned with fresh roses from her garden. Everything in this hotel reflects Francesca's loving care and commitment to sincere and personal hospitality. She goes out of her way to accommodate her guests: she picked us up from the boat, arranged taxis, a hire car, tickets, information, a kettle for the apartment, even an upgrade! We can only recommend this hotel wholeheartedly to anyone who loves silence, nature, hillwalking, swimming in the sea or just the sheer enjoyment of an unspoilt island.

Leave your keys hanging in the door in Salina and forget about your hasty routine! If you feel like going back in time to when people actually observed things instead of glancing at them, and spent some time thinking about life, nature and what really matters, then the island of Salina is the right place for you! No thieves, no worries, no traffic-lights or fines, but only breath-taking landscapes, healthy local food, beautiful sunsets and a strange feeling of ease and peace. "Al Belvedere Salina" is the best place to go if you are looking for a clean and cosy place to stay. Home-made jam, marmalade, bread and cakes for breakfast and Francesca, the owner's, smile will make you feel "cuddled"... and don't forget to take your camera with you!

We had an enjoyable stay at the Hotel right from the beginning. We were welcomed by friendly and accomodating staff. The rooms were very comfortable and spacious. Our balcony provided spectacular views of the sea and mountains. A totaly relaxing environment. The breakfasts consisted on warm cakes and hot bread with home made jams. Delicious! I would reccomend this accomodation to everyone.

We came to Salina in August and although a terribly brief stay it was memorable. Everything was perfect, the location offers a breathtaking view of the Aeolian islands as the sunsets that you can enjoy with an aperitivo in the company of Francesca. The rooms are impeccable with all the comforts you could ever imagine and the breakfast is not to be missed. Simply a must on any trip to the Aeolian Islands!

Room Tip: Book early as it is a popular destination in the summer and Al Belvedere is certainly worth staying...

I really suggest this B&B in one of the most peacefull places of Salina: beautiful sunsets on the terrace facing the other islands sipping Malvasia and chit -chating with Francesca (the super kind owner). Home made breakfast with cakes and jams made following the old local tradition. A beautiful garden where you can relax aside a preistoric oven and enjoying a stunning view on Filicudi and Alicudi islands. Perfect suggestions for trips and good local food. There are 2 apartements and some rooms all equipped with a little kitchen if you wish to cook and a nice front door space if you want to relax looking at the sea. Our room was cosy, but clean and fresh. Silence, care and a familiar environment make the B&B the perfect place to stay. Grazie Fancesca!
