Staying in Residence Al Belvedere Salina, we experienced a great and relaxing time in May / June 2012.
Francesca, the owner of the residence is local and tries to pass on the family and local eolian atmosphere to her guests. A good example of how this looks like is reflected in the breakfast, where only home made marmelades are served. The beautiful mirrors in the bathrooms are made by Francescas father, and by the way, the whole compound was build by the family, which can be seen in many details. To be mentioned: even though the residence has a family touch, we didn´t miss any comfort we expected in this class.
The only downside of the place is its location, as it´s situated quite remotely in the village of Leni, without many shops or restaurants nearby. However, having said this, I also have to say that we haven´t relaxed that well and had so much fun reading books for a long time. The price for peace in this case is a little remoteness. As it was exactly the peace and time for relaxation we were looking for, we would definetely visit Francesca again.
All in all a place we can highly recommend!
