This is run with care and professionalism by a family that treats all visitors very well. The breakfast is great. We stayed at the Villa Limone with 2 couples and it was perfect. We would stay here again for 3 or 4 days, as there is much hiking that we didn't have time to do
Francesca is such a patient and helpful hostess. I hadn't really planned well how I would get from the port of Rinella to the inn - thinking I'll get a taxi or bus. I had just missed the bus (my bad) and the one taxi I Googled wasn't near. So, I called the inn and Francesca was able to get me a taxi within minutes! At check-in, she poured a glass of homemade juice (apricot, last of the season) and sat with me with a lovely local guidebook showing and explaining all the things I could do: hikes up either of the two volcanoes (extinct), the beaches worth seeing, how to get the bus, etc. I didn't even ask, she just did this and I'm so grateful.While there was a bit more noise than I had expected, it was only because it's so quiet that when scooter goes by - and there are loads of scooters! - you hear it. Quickly you get used to it, and by the time you're settling in for a rest before dinner, all is going purely silent again. It's so lovely.The included breakfast each day was sublime. Home-baked breads, nearly a different one each day: apple and cinnamon, chocolate, mandarin orange; homemade jams, made from the fruit they grown in their own garden; homemade vanilla yogurt; homemade juice; coffee... She and Alessia are talents in baking and hostessing!If you want, you can ask for dinner too (extra fee, but well worth it); just let them, know earlier in the day. I decided to eat there each night because it was so good I could roll to my room in a happy stupor. (I believe it's Francesca's "mama" doing all the dinners.) Dinners are 3 courses: antipasti, pasta, and fish/meat; and they offer wine and dessert.Al Belvedere isn't 'in' the center of Leni - it's just a 5-10 minute walk, so you get the access to a grocery store (where if you're hiking or picnicking, you can get a panini made up); a post office (open 3 days a week) and one of the 2 ATMs on the island of Salina (lucky!). Leni village is so lovely. It was like walking through a weathered postcard; of the few villages I saw there, it was by far my favorite.All this to say: I wish I had stayed longer or that I could just move in permanently.
We choose this hotel based on it's excellent reviews and were absolutely not disappointed. The Residence Al Belvedere disappointed Salina provides courtesy, tranquillity and comfort. It was originally farmers hamlet. The place it is very wonderful. Perfect and attentive host, clean room, great products and tasty food. Some room are equipped with a kitchen, so if you feel like cooking, no problem. The gardens, which they have, are very beautiful: herbs,flowers, plants This place is amazing and we highly recommended.

beautiful structure very panoramic, breakfast is excellent with products prepared by Francesca and Alessia that pamper you all day. the rooms and apartments are very clean. Salina is a beautiful island
Wonderful place in the aeolian style, beautifully located with a great view on 4 islands and Sicilian coast. The sunsets were unforgettable. Francesca and Alessia were very friendly and kind hosts, and the food was simply fantastic! Body and soul feel regenerated after our stay. We will surely come back!
I had a wonderful time at Al Belvedere. The view of the sea and the eolie islands - and its sunset - are astounding. It is one of these few places in Italy where you wish you had known it earlier. One of the best places I had the chance to go on vacation.
My boyfriend and I spent two awesome nights at Al Belvedere in Salina and the experience could not be beat. Francesca is so sweet and so helpful and made our stay amazing. She had plenty of insider tips on where to go and where to eat. We arrived a little late in the day and were hungry so she offered to make us a delicious lunch even though I'm sure she had hundreds of other things to do. The property is stunning and each view better than the last. Very close to hiking and great beaches. Great option if you don't want to stay in the more touristy Santa Marina Salina. Thanks Francesca! - Allison & John
Beautiful esperience. My husband and I we spent a weekend at the beginning of June 2018. The residence was very clean and the garden was full of flowers and plants. Francesca prepared a delicious dinner served on the terrace with the wonferful view of Filicudi. Very romantic.Francesca was really great.
It is a very nice place and you could make a perfect place out of it. But for that it would be important to have a higher level of service. E.g. the coffee or the scrambled eggs should not be served at the end of breakfast. The service should realize which jam we like and serve it again. The view was great, we had a huge terrace just for ourselves. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We‘ve had problems with little moskitos, very nasty!
