Villa delle Palme is close to the only beach of Malfa: Punto Scario. It is a classic Eolian house with huge covered terrace, garden and sea view. The location is very strategic. It lies halfway the center of Malfa (200 meters) and the pebble beach and only 30 meters from the bus stop. A cute, footpath behind the house, leads to the center of Malfa.
Villa delle Palme has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a living with 4 sleeps and many terraces and outdoor lounge areas. The house has also many comforts: dishwasher, washing machine, air-conditioning fan coil (warm / cold air), outdoor shower and outdoor kitchen.
From the terrace you can see the island of Stromboli. Its active volcano is often in eruption. Spectacular view at night.
About 50 meters from the house is Hotel Signum, the most renown hotel of the island. Here you can find wellness, massage therapists, aperitifs and a wine cellar with local international wines.
We arrived a bit earlier and the cleaning stuff was still there. The responsible lady was very friendly and made it possible to leave our luggage in one room. Our first impression of the hugh property was really good. The house is exactly how it is shown in the pictures in the internet. It is very clean and well maintained and full equipped with everything you need in your holiday. The big terrace is the most beautiful place. We loved it to sit there for breakfast or dinner and enjoy the amazing view over the sea with the islands Panarea and Stromboli. The property offers many different lovely places to sit and just relax. The only negative issue which might be worth to mention is the traffic light infront of the house. It is situated approx. 150 metres from the house. Since we slept with open doors we saw the traffic lights also in our bedroom.
Malfa is a lovely little village with some nice restaurants and bars, two boutiques, a bakery, a butcher and a supermarket. You will get there everything you need. We (two adults with two children) enjoyed our stay very much!
Casa Delle Palme is conveniently located near the centre of Malfa, and enjoys stunning views out to sea and the islands of Stromboli and Panarea. We never got tired of the amazing view: endless blue!
The gardens are lush and rambling, ablaze with a million bright plants. Beautiful.
It's well equipped with washing machine and dishwasher and etc. The interior is not quite our taste: a little dark and over-furnished, lots of religious paraphernalia, ornaments and ceramic on the walls - and cupboards filled with the owner's belongings. It was hard for two people to find enough hanging space, let alone 4. Towels and linens feel dated too. Nothing was bad, and it was all clean: just not our taste.
The bathroom is a real exception to this: it's been recently renovated, and was lovely and spacious.
Sunrises were special here. The main bedroom is dual aspect and the sun flooded in at 5.40am with full dawn chorus of beautiful birds.
Malfa itself was by far the best place on Salina. Great local restaurants, lovely friendly people, and pretty streets to meander around.
Finally, the contact details we were given for Alessia to arrange check in and as an emergency contact were either wrong or she wasn't working. I texted and called 4 or 5 times over the week and never had a reply. Nonetheless mysteriously a lovely local woman was there to let us in and arrived 15 minutes before our taxi back to the Port - as though telepathic!
I'd happily stay at Casa Delle Palme again, and would recommend it to friends. We had a blissful week in this most beautiful setting.
La casa è perfetta per 4 persone adulte e ha ampi spazi all'aperto, ideali in estate.
All'interno è da segnalare che non ci sono molti spazi per riporre le proprie cose: tutti gli armadi contengono cose e per poter riporre gli abiti abbiamo dovuto liberarne uno. Anche nel bagno l'unico scaffale disponibile era pieno di barattoli e oggetti. Dovendo affittare la casa, il mio suggerimento alla proprietá è di renderla più fruibile, liberando degli spazi da mettere a disposizione degli ospiti. Ottima l'accoglienza da parte della sig.ra Immacolata.
On se sent comme chez soi. C'est une merveilleuse maison décorée avec beaucoup de goût qui possède une vue magnifique sur la mer et le Stromboli. Tout est ravissant: la maison, les terrasses. Le jardin est fantastique et le village de Malfa est charmant. Plusieurs bons restaurants à Malfa. On recommande cette maison à des adultes sans enfants car la plage est difficile d'accès: en effet c'est une plage de galets que l'in atteint par des escaliers de pierre et les gros galets de la plage sont inconfortables. Il vaut mieux louer un bateau pour aller se baigner dans l'ile de Salina car il n'y a que des toutes petites plages de galets ou de sable noir, assez peu hospitalières. En bateau c'est divin de se baigner dans les criques.
La maison de Giulia est parfaite pour un séjour à Salina dans les meilleurs conditions. Le jardin est magnifique, la terrasse permet de manger dehors ou de se reposer en profitant d'une vue splendide sur la mer et les éoliennes.
L'équipement de la cuisine est optimal et les ventilateurs dans toutes les pièces sont bienvenus avec la chaleur de l'été.
Nous avons donc passé un merveilleux séjour dans cette maison très bien située sur l'ile, à quelques pas de la plage et des commerces de Malfa.
Salina is home to a wide variety caves and submerged volcanic craters. Salina is the most fertile of the Aeolian Islands and famous for its capers and the sweet Malvasia wine. Salina is not as crowded as Lipari or Volcano and less fashionable then Panarea, but boasts beautiful nature, excellent restaurants and shops. A bus service connects the villages and the most beautiful sites on the island. Cars and mopeds are available for rent in the main villages. There are excellent opportunities for walking. For example to Capofaro (lighthouse) that is set on the north coast of Salina and boasts stunning views of Panarea and Stromboli (on a clear night it can be possible to see its eruptions). Villa delle Palme is in the picturesque town of Malfa, which distances 7 km from the ferry ports of Rinella and from Santa Marina. The bay at Pollara (where several scenes of Il Postino was filmed) distances 4 km of Malfa and is one of the most splendid pieces of coastline of Sicily.
Other Activities: perfect base for exploring the other Aeolian Islands
