The History

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.

Natural Sulphuric Hotspring benefits:

Boosts Blood Circulation
The water found in natural hot springs contains a variety of different minerals, including calcium and sodium bicarbonate. When you bathe in a hot spring, your skin soaks in these minerals and your hydrostatic pressure rises. As this process continues, circulation and oxygen flow increases — much like when you exercise. An oxygenated circulatory system is beneficial in keeping not only your heart, but your body’s other vital organs and tissues, healthy and strong.

Reduces Stress, Promotes Sleep
Stress relief doesn’t have to come in the form of a pill. Excess stress can be remedied naturally by immersing your body in a hot-spring water bath. The minerals in the water can contribute to the psychological healing process, while heat relaxes tense muscles. Improved sleep can be an added benefit; when you soak in warm water, your body temperature rises, then quickly cools down when your bath is complete. This body-cooling process can help you relax and fall into a deeper sleep.

Relieves Pain, Naturally
If you suffer from chronic muscle pain, arthritis or even fibromyalgia, soaking in a pool of hot-spring water can effectively improve pain. An Israeli study found in the journal “Rheumatology International,” shows evidence that hot mineral baths may aid in pain relief and fibromyalgia fatigue. Additionally, when your body is submerged in hot-spring water, the buoyancy encourages freer movement by naturally supporting your joints.

Solves Skin Problems
When applied directly to the skin, mineral-rich hot-spring water can help to naturally relieve certain skin conditions. The high silica content found in hot springs can smooth and soften dry, rough skin. Similarly, the medicinal properties of the water’s sulfur content can relieve uncomfortable eczema and psoriasis symptoms.
