Hotel L’Ariana ★ ★ ★ ★

Aeolian Islands/Salina

L’Ariana is a small rock lost in the blue of the sea of Salina, sometimes visible only as a thin fuzz on the sea.

Amongst many legends that are told about this little gem there is the one of the pirate El Larian, defeated by the silent and almost invisible presence of this rock. Facing the rock there is a beautiful villa, unique of its kind, that will welcome you with the joy and the glow of good hospitality and the delicious fragrance of excellent local cuisine, typical of the tradition of Salina. The family that owned the villa for over two generations converted it into a hotel and indeed still manages it. The hotel’s main terrace has direct access to the sea and beautiful views of Lipari and the Vulcano islands.

Framed with fascinating sculpted heads (Mamoni) representing warrior-priests who protect from evil, the hotel offers its guests not only a pleasant and relaxing holiday, but also a piece of authentic Aeolian history.
