Federica’s place was in a excellent location on the main street in Malfa and set back from the road and we very much enjoyed our 8-night stay in Malfa. Federica’s parents were away for medical appointments and we were given the warmest welcome by her aunt, Maria, and uncle, who showed us in and welcomed us with homemade icecream, and plums in their house, and showed us where the local beach was (it's beautiful - but more than 5 minutes' walk away). However, the apartment needs more loving care, and we felt for the price we were not looked after properly or in a timely manner. We had plumbing issues nearly every day of our stay, the plumber had to be called out twice (we waited in for him on the second occasion to get the issue resolved), and he agreed that the system needed updating. We only got hot water in the kitchen on day 6. Communications were not prompt enough over these issues. Also, the kitchen plates, glasses and cutlery were unclean - as if they had been washed in cold water with no washing up liquid. This place could be really great if it was fixed up to a better standard.

It is a very comfortable place with a pleasant patio and big bedrooms. We really enjoyed it and would like to be back.

The home was very spacious and comfortable. We enjoyed using the upper floors with beautiful views of the sea. My only criticism is that the apt. was musty smelling on our arrival that didn't dissipate for a few days.

I'm sorry but Salina being an island has no sewers but black wells and with the hot wind it can happen ..

Frederica's place has everything you need for a perfect stay in Malfa. It is large, clean, quiet and has lots of character. Its location - right in the main street of little Malfa - means that you are a step from the supermarket, the bakery, the bus and the restaurants. From Malfa you can easily travel all over Salina by local bus as we did. Frederica's mother, Odile, was a joy to get to know and we really appreciated her care and generosity - especially the gift of beautiful fresh fish from the port! Thank you Odile, Fabrizio and Frederica!

Upon arrival we were shown thru the unit and how everything worked etc. Our host made up a plate of pasta for my wife and I along with a salad. It was refreshing. The unit is located within the center of Malfi near Signum and Revessi hotels. Halfway between town square and grocer. Perfect. We were always out and our hosts parents whom live upstairs were rarely seen or heard. We'll be back next year.

The host couldn't have been more welcoming and gracious. The location of the house is perfect, just a few steps from the grocery store, bakery and local coffee shop, and a short 5 minute walk to the beach. The area of the house that we stayed in was private and spacious, we had everything we needed for a relaxing island/beach vacation. We had an amazing time and would recommend it in a heartbeat!

Il nostro soggiorno a casa di Federica è stato piacevole. L'isola è bella e anche la casa, situata a 15 minuti a piedi dalla più bella spiaggia dell'isola: Punta Scario. Si trova in pieno centro, molto tranquillo sia durante il giorno che di notte. A due passi dal supermercato e dalla fermata del bus per chi vuole conoscere l'isola di Salina. L'unica pecca è che abbiamo avuto problemi con lo scarico, pare che i tubi siano un po' stretti e a volte si bloccano otturando i sanitari. Bisogna comunque dire che la signora Odilia è stata molto disponibile e pronta nel risolvere la situazione. Grazie di tutto. Tonia e Luna, Eleonora, Rachele e Paola.
