Capofaro was born out of the love that the Tasca d’Almerita family have for wine and sea, a spectacular estate found on the island of Salina, designed for friends, guests and travellers of taste, providing the best in Mediterranean hospitality. Capofaro is the truest expression of Salina, a locanda surrounded by rows of vines reaching the sea, producing Malvasia, the typical wine of the island. Capofaro is the culmination of Sicilian cuisine and the Tasca family’s gastronomic traditions, recreated in the restaurant’s kitchen with the best local raw materials, craftsmanship and the creative flair of a southern chef. Capofaro, a member of the Relais & Châteaux association since 2017, is a place where you discover that luxury is natural beauty. The heart of the experience is the fresh water pool surrounded by Malvasia vineyards, found next to spacious green oasis. Hidden by even more vegetation there is a garden spa, open for treatments and massages. For sport lovers, there is a paddle tennis court by the lighthouse and yoga lessons on the roof of the Club House.
Aeolian style architecture meets minimal design. To add to the already loved rooms of Capofaro, since 2018 there’s the addition of six new rooms in the Capofaro lighthouse; guests can now stay in what was the guardian’s abandoned lodgings. Within the lighthouse there is the luxury ‘Il Faro’ Suite, two exclusive suites, two superior and one standard; the rooms all have a private garden and have either a sea view or looking out onto the pair of extinct green volcanoes. Twenty-seven rooms in total, each unique yet all with their own private terrace with a sea or garden view. The rooms are reigned over by the historic Anfiteatro vineyard, with its striking colours, seasonal changes and thrilling energy. The rooms, of which there are five different types, are all of the minimal Aeolian architectural design; suite 21 is found at the highest point of the estate, with spectacular views it is the only suite equipped with an old working oven that can be used for private dinners.
