For absolute tranquility and guaranteed privacy, Capofaro Malvasia & Resort is a perfect paradise. White-washed buildings nestle in the utter peace and harmony of luxuriant vineyards, overlooking the deep blue sea and bathed in the beguiling glow from the lighthouse (faro) which shines its beam over the property.
Our boutique five-star resort, with its peerless view over the islands of Stromboli and Panarea, nestles amid Malvasia vineyards which sweep down to the azure sea.
It's the ideal place for recharging your batteries with complete relaxation, or for a memorably romantic stay cocooned in a luxury which is both elegantly refined and utterly simple, with attentive, discreet service.
Legend relates that these ancient volcanic islands were created by Aeolus, the god of winds. History shows that they have been inhabited since prehistoric times. Still today, every inch of the Aeolian islands betrays a heady mix of ageless Mediterranean civilisation and sublime, beguiling nature.
The restaurant at the Capofaro Malvasia & Resort, on the island of Salina, also welcomes non-residents and is well worth a visit. The origins of its cuisine are the result of a careful study of the history and traditions of these places and are enhanced by the talents of Riccardo di Giacinto, a young chef and member of the Jeunes Restaurateurs d'Europe, who was recently awarded a prestigious Michelin star. He focuses all of his expertise on his dishes and on enhancing, to the utmost, the marvellous produce offered-up by this unique area. He unearths the most authentic flavours, augmenting their purity and their essentiality and creating a revival of those familiar tastes of the land and sea, of magic and colour. Working alongside him is executive chef, Giovanni Davide Ferreri. This year Capofaro is once again listed by the 'Soste di Ulisse' association that includes all the excellent food, wine and accommodation venues in the region.
