The Aeolian Islands, Sicily and Malta, pearls of the Mediterranean
9 Nights
On demand
A concierge is at your service:
Price of a local call

Sicily and the two archipelagos bordering it, the Aeolian Islands to the north and Malta to the south, encapsulate the history of the Mediterranean: from their coasts, where we find vestiges of the Phoenicians, to the slopes of their mountains, where there are Greek and Roman remains. Our gaze is always facing the sea…

Locanda Don Serafino

Ragusa - Italy 11 rooms

Property reopened on 12/06/2020 (dd/mm/yy)

Hotel and restaurant in town. In the maze of little streets and baroque churches of Ragusa Ibla, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is where you find Locanda Don Serafino, one of the finest restaurants in Sicily. Near the ramparts of the lower section of the city, in the palace's former barn, the restaurant sits under high vaulted ceilings of exposed stone. Two-Michelin-star chef Vincenzo Candiano sources his ingredients exclusively from the island, yet draws his inspiration from well beyond the Mediterranean to elevate Sicilian cuisine with his own style. Just a few streets away, the rooms of unrivalled charm, and partially carved into the rock, are located in a building from the 19th century. ... Learn moreless

Capofaro Locanda & Malvasia

Malfa (ME) - Salina - Aeolian Island - Italy 27 rooms

This property is temporarily closed.

Hotel and restaurant on the seafront. Salina is the greenest of the seven Aeolian Islands that emerge from the deep blue Tyrrhenian Sea. Capofaro’s small whitewashed buildings and fresh water swimming pool stand regally amid the vineyard of the Tasca d’Almerita family, at the foot of one of two extinct volcanoes. Simply adorned, each room opens onto a terrace facing the sea where the fascinating silhouettes of neighbouring Stromboli and Panarea take shape. The chef leads guests on a sun-filled gastronomic journey, infused with the salty and sweet flavours of the produce grown in the property's rich volcanic soil. Following the grand monsù tradition befitting this Sicilian land of aristocracy, he proposes pairings with the Malvasia wine produced in the family vineyard. ... Learn moreless
