“Will return!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2014

Stayed for three nights in March and the weather lived up to its reputation as 'mad'. Lots of rain but the hours of sunshine we did get showed off this wonderful apartment hotel. Everything the reviews say about Francesca is true - she's the most welcoming and accommodating host I've ever come across. The food was delicious and the surroundings glorious. I'll definitely be heading back there (but not in March again...)

We stayed at this wonderful apartment hotel for 3 days. Francesa was extremely welcoming and greeted us with tea and different kinds of biscuits when we came since it was heavily raining. The place is pretty near from the port/harbour which is accessible by bus.

Views were wonderful--sparkling blue seas all around. The gardens were impeccable, with flowers everywhere. The rooms were comfortable and the kitchen very adequate. We would definitely come here again. She was kind enough to drop us back to the harbour when leaving since we had returned the rental car. She had even packed the fruit cake for us to have for breakfast since it was early when we had left. :)

Room Tip: We had room 1 which was sea facing (from the kitchen windows)

My family (4-year old, a 1 year old and parents) stayed that this wonderful hotel (sort of apartment hotel) for 5 days in July 2013. There is so much to take in here, but the short version is that we absolutely loved our stay. Francesca has really hit the mark on this establishment, and I continue to be impressed every time I think about it. The staff are welcoming, attentive, hard-working, and easy going. Views were wonderful--sparkling blue seas all around. The gardens were impeccable, with flowers everywhere. The rooms were comfortable and the kitchen very adequate. Music and drinks on the terrace on Friday evening--The girls loved it and so did we. In fact, our 4-year-old quite fell in love with Francesca's sister, Luciana. We would definitely come here again, and hope to do that soon!

We spent 6 nights at Belvedere and from the moment we arrived we loved it!!
The room (apartment rather) was excellent with everything you need and a fantastic view over Filicudi and Alicudi (see pictures). The homemade breakfasts were amazing and the timing extremely flexible. Because of the low season a lot of restaurants were closed so we ended up eating there a few times. Every meal was a feast of flavours and never the same! Francesca and her mother are wonderful chefs and had no problem at preparing vegetarian food for me and non-vegetarian dishes for my partner.
Having said all this....the best part still has to come...
Francesca is a wonderful cheerful person and in the short time of our stay we felt we became friends. She is always so nice and helpful and merry....it is difficult to describe all this in a few words....we enjoyed chatting with her in the evening and took advantage of her knowledge of the islands. We deeply enjoyed our stay and wish we will go back.
Thanks a lot Francesca ( and the rest of the family!!) and keep up the great work you are doing!

Francesca and her team are wonderful, the residence is beautiful, and the island is captivating. Al Belvedere is located in the small village of Leni, a short bus ride or hike up from the port town and lovely beaches of Rinella. It is a peaceful and pretty spot with several terraces that showcase lovely sunset views of the surrounding mountains and islands. Everything served at the residence is grown or made on the island, and Francesca is a wonderful cook. She went so far as to make me gluten-free cakes for breakfast, and provided excellent tips and advice for exploring the island. I highly recommend the Al Belvedere, and I can't wait to return!

It is difficult to write a review of Francesca's establishment because I am no poet, but the unimaginable combination of the sheer beauty of the land, the kindness of our host and the appetizing array of jellies and Italian delicacies offered truly knocked me (and the rest of my family) off my feet and is difficult to put into words. All I can say is, I have yet to have a more restful, lovely stay at any hotel in Italy, and I cannot wait to come back--hopefully on my honeymoon.

We stayed for a few days but wish we could have stayed longer. Location, rooms and food all faultless, and Francesca is very welcoming and in tune with what you want to get out of your time here. The island is really easy to get around, walking up the volcano is highly recommended for the views from the summit. There is a decent supermarket in Leni, maybe a 10 minute walk up the road, if you have a room with a kitchen it's hard to find a reason not to stay here for a week or two! Will be going here again, highly recommended if you want a peaceful place to watch the world go by.
