Salina house description

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).
