Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

The Hotel Orsa Maggiore is a charming family-run boutique hotel. The swimming pool sits pride of place, surrounded by a smart sun deck with loungers. Indulge, with an Aperol spritz aperitif from the poolside bar before choosing a table for dinner. Seafood is a speciality – think swordfish carpaccio and grilled mahi-mahi. If you fancy a trip to the beach, the picturesque black sands of Sabbie Nere are 5 minutes’ walk away. It is a great base for exploring the rest of the Aeolian Islands, with good transport links for day trips to the other islands. The bedrooms provide a fresh and tranquil retreat after days spent exploring the volcanic archipelago. 

Transfer time: approx. 1 hour 45 mins by private car to Milazzo Port from Catania Airport; approx. 1 hour 40 by hydrofoil/ferry to Vulcano Port & approx 10 mins by hotel shuttle to Hotel Orsa Maggiore

* Please note that the ferry ticket to the island is payable locally for approx. €20 per person one way

Aeolian Islands

The Aeolian Islands are a volcanic archipelago off the north-east coast of Sicily. Each of these seven islands have a character of their own.

Lipari, the relaxed capital of the Aeolians, comes with a lovely tight-knit old town. Salina is a treat for food and wine lovers, thanks to the seafood restaurants and Malvasia vineyards. Whitewashed churches perch on the cliffs on pocket-sized Panarea. And Stromboli is carved from a single smoking volcano.

Boats shuttle foodies, hikers and scuba divers between these stunning islands – and Sicily is less than an hour away by ferry.

Inghams operate a telephone Rep service on the Aeolian Isalnds.
