Orietta en Franco 's huis was precies zoals de foto's en wij het ons hebben voorgesteld.
Een mooi ingericht en gerenoveerd huis. Mooie ligging met adembenemende zonsondergangen.
De perfecte plek om te onthaasten!
Goed onderhouden tuin en niet te vergeten vriendelijke en behulpzame gastgevers.
Alleen al om Orietta en Franco te leren kennen was het al de moeite waard om naar La Salina af te reizen.
Franco and Orietta are lovely and excellent hosts. The apartment "Babilionia" was a relaxing, quite and very nice place to be. We fully enjoyed our time in Pollara with Franco and Orietta.
Una bellissima vacanza!
La casa è molto bella e la posizione da sogno - una finestra incornicia il tramonto come un quadro.
Le nostre due bambine di 5 e 6 anni hanno passato tanto tempo a giocare sulla veranda e in giardino, al fresco.
La discesa al mare è facile e sugli scogli vengono affittati materassini e ombrelloni. E quando si risale il piccolo chiosco vicino alla Chiesa è al posto giusto per un aperitivo:)
Pollara è isolata dal centro più vivo dell'isola ma è il posto perfetto se si cerca natura e tranquillità.
Il servizio di autobus funziona bene per cui si può senza problemi raggiungere le altre spiaggette dell'isola o i centri abitati.
Grazie Orietta e Franco per la vostra ospitalità e per la cura che avete avuto di noi!
Amazing place to stay! Best sunset, quiet heaven and easy access to Malfa by bus. Orietta and Franco are so kind they invited us for a glass of local wine and a festive aperitif with many Sicilian specialities. Highly recommended if you are looking for a place to rest and dream!
This is a wonderful house in a beautiful spot. Perfect place to relax and unwind.
The sunsets from the deck chairs are spectacular! The whole island is charming and the sea is beautiful too. We had a great stay and can only recommend.
We enjoyed every day of our stay at Orietta and Franco's house. They were very kind & generous hosts. The three lovely apartments are surrounded by a wonderful garden where they grow lemons, grapes, cipolle and olives.
Pollara is probably the smallest and quietest village of Salina. It's only accessible by a steep road and there is a bus every 1 1/2 hour or so. There is a friendly snack bar & a restaurant you should support during your stay. A path leads down the sea where you can swim and rest on the rocks.
Go there: if you're looking for an idyllic, quiet & peaceful place
Please skip it: if you want hustle and bustle & beach holidays
Our experience with Orietta and Franco was a wonderful one, they were generous hosts and we enjoyed not only their garden produce but also their company...Pollara is a small place but we found that we did not want to leave it often - it was visually inspiring for us as artists and the view from Itaca looking out over the sea, always needed to be checked out as the weather changed, and clouds came and went. Franco & Orietta have put a lot of love and work into restoring the house, we loved all the small details which enhanced the dwelling.
Alessandro's Oasi Bar just around the corner was also a bonus. We hope that many more people support him and his business.
What a beautiful place!
Franco and Oriette were so friendly and hospitable.
They have a lovely set of two or three apartments set among olive trees, wild fennel and a couple of lemon trees. And a view to die for.
Pollara is on the western side of Salina, one of the 7 Aeolian islands.
It is a very small village, with access only by a very steep road.
It overlooks a wide bay with views of the islands Allicudi and Fillicudi.
There is a small bar and a (seasonally open) restaurant... If you want peace and quiet and a breath-taking view this is the place for you.
Franco's spot is just lovely in Pollara. We happened to arrive when the grapes dangling from the trellis were bursting with ripeness.
We enjoyed our stay in the Samarcanda apartment. There were neighbors in the adjoining apartment from Switzerland. They were quite nice.
The only down side was the mattress. It was tortilla like.
Orietta and Franco created a wonderful house and garden in this remote place, which they are seemingly happy to share with their guest. We enjoyed the apartment, the view from the terrace, the walks to the beach, the slow rythem of the island, and the chats with Orietta and Franco over a glass of homebrew citronella liquor from their own garden. They are very kind hosts. We would be happy to meet again, in Pollara or Torino.
