#4 of 6 hotels in Malfa
Capofaro is a refuge, an oasis, inspired by love for beauty, expressed by the owners the Tasca d’Almerita family. The classic Eolian style whitewashed buildings, adorned with bougainvillea flowers and the fresh water swimming pool stand among six hectares of Malvasia vineyards; which produce both dry and sweet wines. Before guests the horizon stretches out, broken only by the silhouettes of the volcanic islands of Stromboli and Panarea in turquoise sea. The twenty-seven rooms all have a private terrace with either a sea or garden view. They are divided into five types – standard, superior, junior suite, exclusive suite and imperial suite. From 2018 six rooms with their own garden will occupy the hotel's lighthouse which overlooks the Capofaro cliff and the splendour of the Aeolian sea, with the twin mountains of Salina behind it. The chef at Capofaro leads guests on a sun-drenched gastronomic journey, infused with the salty and sweet flavours of the produce grown in the property's

Capofaro Locanda & Malvasia is heaven on earth. It is a magnificent 5-star hotel but quite unlike any other - it is set in a working winery, you are surrounded by vineyards and the sea, with views across to Stromboli and Panarea in the distance. It is a 10-minute drive from the nearest village Santa Marina di Salina and the port, with regular shuttle services provided. These also serve the beach club where we spent a very relaxing day on the pebble beach with comfortable sun beds. Ferry pick-up and drop off are – of course – all taken care of by the hotel. The young equipe was extremely professional, charming and friendly. The 3 sommeliers, Giulio, Giulio and Valerio, constantly came up with interesting local and other Sicilian wines – not just the Tasca d’Almerita ones; wines we wouldn’t get at home and why try anything else! Speaking of food, the restaurant is highly recommended with all manner of Sicilian specialities, an a la carte breakfast to everyone’s liking, with hot and cold food, divine cakes, freshly-made bread to die for, freshly squeezed juices from all kinds of delicious fruits. We didn’t manage to squeeze in a “proper” lunch in between the generous breakfast and delicious dinner, but we did have salad and sandwiches on a couple of occasions – also perfect. The in-house massages from Edina were of the best we have ever had, and all complemented the serene setting and atmosphere of the Locanda. Edina is also Capofaro’s resident Yogi and because of the wonderful experience with the massages, my wife was inspired to try her first-ever yoga lesson. She went back the next day for a second yoga class. Tip: Definitely do the herb picking session with the Chef! The pool was perfect for cooling and refreshing dips, again with comfortable beds and parasols and impeccable pool-side service. We had a Junior Suite just past the Club House, with its own private patio, with views of both the “amfiteatro” vineyard and the sea. It was so lovely and spacious, enormous comfortable bed, fantastic bathroom with an excellent shower & eco-friendly toiletries, a delightful little coffee machine (in addition to usual mini bar, tea etc). Capofaro Locanda & Malvasia was exactly what we hoped for and more. It is definitely a place to return to!

Minimalist furnishings in the room means it isn’t all that comfortable just hanging around in the room. I wish we had a better couch to sit in instead of the tall day bed. The staff were super nice. The wine guy was knowledgeable but not expert on the wines. I’m glad we went at the end of the season when it wasn’t crowded, otherwise it would have been too crowded. Things to add: a bathroom scale, better pillows, a washcloth, a better blanket.

I just fell in love with Capofaro on arrival. The room was delightful just up from the pool and our friends were in the adjacent block - it felt so comfortable with a dee terrace to sit and read, or have a little drink before dinner with a fab sea view. The pool area was sleek and well appointed, with a raised terrace overlooking the sea that was perfect for after dinner grappa and long games of back gammon. The food was all locally sourced and delicious. The pasta pomodoro was the best I have ever had. Meanwhile the breakfast buffet was a feast in every sense. I truly hope to come back one day.

We stayed here for our honeymoon and fell in love with this resort. Everywhere you stand on the property has an incredible view of vineyards leading into the ocean, the Aeolian islands off to the distance, or the mountains of Salina behind you. The rooms are very nice with beautiful views and small patio’s but the best part of this property is by far the pool area where you can enjoy apertivi in the evening watching the sunset over the Aeolian Islands. The breakfast was also a highlight with freshly baked pastries, delicious meats and cheeses, champagne, and freshly squeezed juices. I would highly recommend spending an entire day relaxing by the pool, eating lunch in the restaurant, napping, and enjoying apertivi and dinner in the restaurant. The tasting menu for dinner was one of the best meals I’ve ever had (see my review of the restaurant separately). In addition to the food, the service and resort amenities are very nice. They offer free transportation to and from the port and shuttles into the other towns on the island multiple times a day. They also have a deal with a local beach to get free beach passes to a lido/beach club. We used these free shuttles for 2 days but had such a good time relaxing at the hotel we wish we would have stayed on the property more to enjoy the amenities

We were here to celebrate my birthday. This is a beautiful property. Truly picturesque. The food and service are excellent. The wines very good. You have to see it to understand how pretty it is, and then you have the volcano right across the water erupting every few minutes at night... GO!!
