The 'archipelago, home to ancient civilizations, is the ideal destination for those who want to enjoy a temperate climate and more beautiful and attractive places.
Recently opened and in a new construction, the house takes the strictly rural Aeolian architecture, with the "loggia" supported by "pulera" columns, spacious terraces, rooms furnished with attention to tradition make for pleasant hospitality in a family dimension.
The colors of the rooms are inspired by those of the surrounding natural elements, the true wealth of the B&B Al Salvatore: the sea, the soil, the sky, the flowers ... enhanced by the scent of jasmine and Pomelia coming from the rocky garden.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Marcello and Paolo are both great people. Absolutely breathtaking house they have.

  • We spent three nights at the B&B of Paola and Marcello and our experience has been very positive.

    The house is beautiful and it’s perfect for spending a relaxing holiday. Our favourite corner of the house was the patio where you can chill out laying on the armchair while enjoying an amazing view of the sea.

    Paola and Marcello like pampering their guests with gorgeous breakfasts made of freshly baked cakes, “pane cunzato” with tomatoes from their garden and home-made jams. Breakfast is served in the patio where all the guests sit at the same long table. Paola & Marcello like talking and stimulating the conversation between the guests and this helps to create a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. What’s better than beginning the day chatting with friendly people while having a freshly home-made breakfast looking at the sea from a beautiful location?

    Be aware that the B&B is about 2 kilometers from the center of Lipari. There is a bus to reach the “Marina”, the town’s centre but it runs only once per hour and the last run is quite early, about 6.30 pm. Alternatives are: walking, taking a taxi or renting a scooter/car.

    We suggest staying at Paola & Marcello’s at least 5 days to take the most out of it. We only spent four days and we regret we could not stay longer.

  • chi cerca un posto magico, accogliente, bellissimo, favoloso e chi più ne ha più ne metta, deve assolutamente andare da paola e marcello.
    di persona abbiamo solo conosciuto paola ed una amico di casa carissimo, daniele. paola è fantastica! molto accogliente e disponibile, ma si ha anche tanta bella privacy! la casa è proprio come piace a noi, con un'aria di leggerezza e qui e li qualche mobile antico. la colazione fa sognare con pane fatto in casa, marmellate, joghurt fatto in casa e mille delizie. per pranzo e cena c'è la possibilità di cucinarsi in un carino cucinino esterno, dove è anche bello chiacchierare un po' con altri ospiti. per arrivare in paese o al mare c'è una navetta o un simpatico tassista, i proprietari se devono andare anche loro giù, o i propri piedi :) è una bella passeggiatina. è una bella miscela tra essere nella natura e un po' in disparte, ma poter anche andare al paesino vicino per andare a bere qc. bene, ci è piaciuto un mondo e certamente torneremo. noi, io, mio marito è le nostre bimbe di 6 e 3 anni, siamo stati benissimo. grazie grazie grazie!

  • Fantastic place on a quiet hilltop on a beautiful island. There is lots of delicious fresh food in the garden; Paola will tell you all about it. The views on the Aeolian sea are stunning too.

    This place and its people are absolutely amazing. Go there!

    July 2013
  • Paola and Marcello from the first time we were in contact have been absolutely delightful and wonderful hosts. They have a unique and beautiful haven which makes you feel like time has indeed stretched.

    The panoramic views from this location are spectacular and the way in which the home and rooms have been decorated are done so lovingly and artistically.

    Breakfasts were so delicious, with homemade jams from the fruit coming from the gardens, home baked bread, scrumptious eggs, fragrant (email hidden)uly a great start to the day.

    Paola and Marcello really make you feel so welcome, sharing history of their island, and their creativity. They are fantastic hosts who even drove me to the ferry in the very early hours of the morning.

    I can highly recommend this place and staying with Paola and Marcello. They are super hosts! I am looking forward to when I return and stay for longer next time!

  • Paola and Marcello were not there - but Sieglinde, a friend of them. Sieglinde is a great, interesting and heartly woman. She has taken a lot of time for their guests. In evenings we have been sitting with her and the other guests on the terrace, drinking wine and cooked together. We were allowed to use everything and this made ​​us feel at home. The rooms are very nice and the entire house is decorated with lots of lovely things. The house is situated on a mountain - without bikes or car, it is difficult to achieve. But Sieglinde has driven us from time to time. Overall, the property is highly recommended! We had a great holiday there and the place, the house, are really very special.

    May 2013
  • We stayed there with our 9 year-old girl and 10 months old baby girl.
    It was great, they did not want to leave. Paola has everything there for babies and kids: cod, high chair, toys, kitchen to play...and the most amazing views from the garden. Everything was perfect for us, only our stay was too short....

  • Chi pernotta in un hotel 5 stelle non riceve un trattamento principesco come qui... famiglia accogliente, calda e dai mille talenti. Ottima cucina liparota e pane caldo appena sfornato. Location rilassante e panorama da sogno sulla baia di Lipari. Sempre disponibili per consigli, passaggi in auto (il b&b è a 30min a piedi dal centro ma raggiungibile anche con bus durante il giorno) o semplici chiacchierate nel giardino. Rapporto qualità-prezzo decisamente soddisfacente. Spiaggia bellissima e nascosta a poca distanza da casa.
    Per soggiorni sulle Eolie, l'isola di Lipari è dotata di maggiori servizi e ben collegata a tutte le altre isole. Per questo, è piu facile spostarsi da qui per visite giornaliere. Da non perdere il giro della costa occidentale in barca con Pino (fatevi consigliare da Marcello): fondali eccezionali!!

    August 2012
  • Paola, Marcello and Valerio are wonderfully kind hosts who go out of their way to ensure you feel especially welcome, happy and relaxed - even part of the family!
    Marcello's love and knowledge of the island and its environment shine through with so many helpful tips and insights during our stay.

    Other highlights include the delicious breakfasts (fresh fruits from the garden and Paolo's legendary home cooked bread) while enjoying panoramic views of the sea and surrounding countryside; large, comfortable rooms with a spacious communal terrace in front of the garden and total peace and tranquillity in the evenings under the starry skys.
