Pretty country-house hotel in the languid village of Malfa, with big pool, fragrant gardens and inspiring sea views If you thought the Aeolian Islands were all about summer crowds, noisy parties and arid landscapes, then think again. Tucked away on the quiet side of Salina, the largest and greenest of the 7 islands, the Signum lies half-hidden among Malfa's citrus groves, flowery fields and winding lanes. From its jasmine-scented gardens and sunset-facing terrace, you look up to looming peaks and down over indigo seas - which are 10 mins away, if you fancy a dip. The hotel itself – a restored residence with newer pastel-coloured extensions – has something of the French country house in its sofa'd drawing room, oil paintings, fer forgé beds and balconies opening onto blossom and birdsong. Bedrooms may lack the contemporary chic of the Capofaro or the party vibe of the Raya, but they're spacious, comfy, elegant (in an old-fashioned, rustic way) - and half the price. It's also family-run, family-friendly and refreshingly unselfconscious, with a long 8-month season which appeals to discerning travellers.
