Enjoy the sun, the natural beauty, the relaxed ambience and the exquisite cuisine of these islands. Salina’s many restaurants range from family friendly to fine dining, or you can prepare your own feast from the island’s fresh and bountiful produce, fish, meats and baked goods – buon appetito!

Owner info

About the owner: The villa is my family's ancestral home. Twenty years ago my husband and I started restoring it, an endeavor that would not have been possible without the enthusiastic support and assistance of our extended family in Salina and the Aeolian Islands. We vacation there each year and rent the villa at other times to defray the costs of maintaining it.

Why the Owner Chose Santa Marina Salina ME, Italy:
This is a genuine, centuries old villa of which there are only a handful remaining in Salina. While it has been updated by adding plumbing, electricity, air conditioning, internet connectivity, and modern bathrooms and kitchen, great care has been taken to preserve its original style and character. Many of the doors and windows including their hardware are original, and there are antique tiles, antique tile reproductions and locally produced terracotta tile throughout the villa. Two of the rooms have ceilings which were painted with intricate designs over a 100 years ago; there is a complete, though non-functioning, 'palmento' wine press on the lower level, again one of the few remaining in Salina; the stairs are centuries old. The furniture is a mix of antiques, antique reproductions and other, more modern Aeolian style furniture. The villa's location on a narrow, pedestrians only 'street'--and an easy walk to Santa Marina's many amenities--adds to its charm. We think you will find the villa to be a unique and enjoyable complement to the beauty of the Aeolian Islands.
