Every summer, Grandpa Alfredo travelled to the Aeolian islands accompanied by Silvana, who dreamed of living in the greenest of all the little islands: Salina. When Silvana married Francesco, together, while expecting little Anita, they traveserd Italy to buy a small home for the summer holidays. But Salina was to become much more than a holiday home, it became the real family home: from Claudio learning to swim in the Pollara waters from 3 days old, to the family riding vespas without helmets and memorable trips on the red boat, family memories were made.
After over 10 years of travelling the world from New York to Hamburg to Bangkok to Cannes to London, our family, now extendend with the addition of Filippo, decided to finally settle down in Salina and start a new adventure: Principe di Salina.
A boutique hotel conceptualised and created to make our guests feel at home, help them to fall in love with all the little things that make this island magical – as it happened to us many years ago.
