  • At the seaside

"Il Gelso Vacanze” is a Bed & Breakfast on a quite spot at only 200mt from the sea and withing a gentle walking distance from the village of Malfa; here you will find bar, restaurants, newsagents, boutiques and a supermarket.

Through a driveway shaded by pine trees, you get to the parking lot.

The internal little streets, surrounded by flowers and lush plants, lead to terraces that reflect the typical Aeolian architecture, also reflected in the bedrooms with antique furniture with classic wrought iron either made in Naples or Sicily.

All the rooms. each provided with bathroom with shower, overlook a terrace (bagghiu) which is always facing the sea and with seats of masonry (Bisola) on the edge.

Columns (Pulera) supports the roof of the terrace made from wattle and lush bouganvilee. In ancient times it was so, and even today, is so.

Salina has always been known as the green pearl due to its lush vegetation, despite the absence of water sources. Even in the height of summer, the terrain remains verdant and luxurious. This island is located in a geographically privileged position in the center of the Aeolian archipelago, making it possible to reach other islands by boat or hydrofoil. To the south are Lipari and Vulcano, to the northeast are Panarea and Stromboli, and to the west are Filicudi and Alicudi. Salina is made up of two ancient, extinct volcanic cones, Monte Fossa delle Felci (962 m) and Monte dei Porri (860 m), so similar to each other that they inspired the island's name in antiquity, Didyme (Twins). However, the current name dates back to the Roman period and is due to the presence of a brackish lake, used as a salt pan, located in the present-day Lingua, a fraction of the municipality of Santa Marina.

Abbiamo soggiornato un paio di giorni in questa struttura che a nostro avviso si colloca al top della sua categoria. Struttura circondata da un ampio giardino ben curato, terrazzo e verande fronte mare. Camere ampie e arredamento essenziale. Gianfranco il gestore, è estremamente gentile e disponibile.

Camera pulitissima e spaziosa, dotata di un terrazzino attrezzato con tanto di amaca. Colazione buona e abbondante. Il proprietario è una persona molto gentile, attento al cliente e disponibile a fornire informazioni sul luogo. Assolutamente consigliato per un soggiorno a Malfa.

Luogo incantevole, circondato da un bel giardino ricco di profumi e uno splendido scenario panoramico del mare e della montagna. Un grazie particolare al gestore Gianfranco che mette al centro il cliente.

Siamo stati benissimo, abbiamo trovato grande cortesia e disponibilità. Il posto è immerso nel verde e ovunque si respira profumo di fiori. Comodo al centro ma con lo scooter o l'auto si va dove si vuole. Conserveremo uno splendido ricordo.

Struttura tipica eoliana con vista mare. Stanze ampie e dotate di terrazza attrezzata con sedie a sdraio ed amaca. Bagno funzionale e di comode dimensioni. Doppia ventilazione (ventilatore ed aria condizionata). Colazione ben assortita e completa: frutta, dolci, marmellate artigianali, uova sode, succhi di frutta (unico neo mancano i freschi), pane fresco. Cortesia e gentilezza da parte del gestore. Un soggiorno indimenticabile.
