Il Gelso Vacanze

Il Gelso Vacanze is a resort in the form of a Bed and Breakfast, situated in Salina, otherwise known as the Green Pearl, at the heart of the Aeolian Islands. Its strategic position, in a peaceful area, 200 m from the sea, 700 m from the Fishermen’s Marina and 300 m from the inhabited centre Malfa, means that bars, restaurants, newsstands, pharmacies, supermarkets, banks and other commercial enterprises are within easy reach.
Pass through the entrance road which is shaded by pine trees, and there is access to a private car park. The internal pathways, surrounded by flowers and flourishing plants, lead to the rooms, all which have separate entrances by means of a private terrace, complete with a sea view. The restoration of this ancient residence mirrors typical Aeolian architecture.


Breakfast is served on the large panoramic terrace overlooking the sea and on request can be served in your private terrace.


Le amache situate sulle terrazze regalano momenti di serena armonia, leggendo un libro o semplicemente sorseggiando un drink.

L’aperitivo al tramonto

Al calar del sole è il momento per un fresco aperitivo sulla grande terrazza, con vista sul Mar delle Eolie, dove l’atmosfera è davvero magica


All of the rooms face the bower terrace (bagghiu), the view from which is almost always directed towards the sea. Around the edge of this terrace, there are still the ancient masonry stone seats (bisola). The columns (pulere) hold the roof of the terrace, which is made of wattle and luxuriant bougainvillea. It was like this in ancient times, and it is still like this today. As an alternative to our rooms, still in the same resort and at the same distance from the sea, we offer holidays in our comfortable private houses, whose architecture is typically Aeolian, and which have a pergola terrace with a sea view. Il Gelso Vacanze is the ideal place to spend your holiday, in complete relaxation and in contact with nature, on one of the most fascinating archipelago Aeolian Islands.

Il Gelso

The old mulberry tree (il gelso) bent by the wind and the weather gives its name to the structure of the Sangiolo family. The tree, in the quiet of the summer, still offers shade and produces sweet fruits.

Salina has always been defined the Green Pearl due to its lush free greenery, and even though there are no water springs, the territory remains green and luxuriant even at the height of summer.
