You arrive on the island of Salina, in the Aeolian Islands, planning to go on vacation, and you will realize soon that instead it is an experience that leaves its mark. The Mediterranean has an abundance of wonderful places but here, the atmosphere, with a mythical volcanic and historical culture, breathes with the air and touches us deeply.
The specific and unique architecture is a major feature of the island, along with the lofty visions, the intense scents and the silences, which will satisfy your soul.
Hotel Mamma Santina, our family run hotel, born from the beauty of the island, provides services that allow comfort for other parts of the body too: the kitchen is the same in which our grandmothers taught us, there is air conditioning to cool the famous nights of the scirocco when it should happen and there is the possibility of a dip in the pool in the garden with lemon trees.
Rooms at the Hotel Mamma Santina are located between terraces and gardens with typical plants of the Mediterranean, in a private and quiet atmosphere. They are all very spacious and airy, furnished with refined simplicity.
The names of the rooms are a tribute to the inhabitants of the “mare nostrum”, the language is the Sicilian dialect: u pruppu, a murine, u saracu, which are names that take you to the language of each Aeolian fisherman.
You can relax in the hammocks of the terraces or look out over the balconies, and you are caught by a wonderful view from sunrise to sunset offering shards of lights and colors which are ever changing and unique that surround the silhouettes of the nearby islands.
There are three types of rooms, standard, superior and suites, ready to accommodate couples and families, all equipped with every comfort: air conditioning, minibar, satellite TV, WiFi, safe, telephone, spacious en-suite bathrooms with shower and some with a Jacuzzi.
Nothing is left to chance and all furnishings tell a fascinating and unique history, a history that is lost in time of the Aeolian tradition.
The restaurant of the Hotel Mamma Santina was born in 1978, it is one of the most ancient hotels of Salina. The kitchen offers typical recipes of the Aeolian tradition, some revisited with creativity and new tastes.
