Welcome to Relax!
The Mediterranean has an infinite number of enchanting hideaways, but nothing quite as unique as the Eolian Islands. And it is the island of Salina, with her black beaches, sleeping volcano and endless clear blue sea, that is Sicily’s best-kept treasure. With its distinct Sicilian flavor, Salina echoes with history and tradition, adhering to sacred customs of hospitality, food and drink.
The Sicilian architecture, a main feature of the island, is in harmony with the natural setting. Watch and admire the ever changing panoramas from the island’s countless verandas and open decks. Let the aromas and the undisturbed silences sooth and satisfy your soul.
Hotel Mamma Santina, our quiet, family run establishment has captured all of the island’s uniqueness. And there are other comforts as well: Sicilian dishes prepared the way our grandmothers and grandfathers once taught us; air-conditioned rooms for those hot nights when the Sirocco (the southern winds from northern Africa) blow in from across the sea; a swimming pool surrounded by lemon trees for a midnight dip or an afternoon splash (just to mention a few).
And for those of you looking for adventure or the chance to explore, the hotel provides detailed information on hikes up the island’s extinct volcano Monte Fossa delle Felci, including nature guides that offer insight into the island’s many flora and fauna. A trip around the island on our caique brings you to places that are otherwise inaccessible on foot: grottos, small lagoons and remote beaches. Excursions to other islands, which each have a special charm of their own, can also be organized.
