See our selecton of sample itineraries which feature Capofaro

Set amidst a working vineyard producing Malvasia wine, Capofaro is arguably the best boutique hotel on Salina Island.

There are 18 rooms, including five suites, housed in seven whitewashed cottages that are typical of the Aeolian style. Each has stunning views across the vineyard and to the sea, and overlooks the lighthouse of Faro, its namesake.

The restaurant views are also fantastic, and Panarea and Stromboli, the site of an active volcano, can both be seen on a clear day. Food is typically Sicilian and Aeolian, and is mostly al fresco in order to make the most of the views. The wine cellar, as expected from a vineyard, is full with delicious local wines.

The island's central position in the Aeolian archipelago makes it the perfect base for day trips to the six other Aeolian Islands, and the hotel itself is situated in between the villages of Malfa and Santa Marina.

Facilities at Capofaro include a swimming pool and a tennis court.
