Il Gabbiano Relais : come è nato...

Libeccio, Scirocco, Mezzogiorno, Maestrale, Ponente, Tramontana, Qibli and Levante, are all winds that give their names to the apartments of the Gabbiano Relais, one of the most exclusive residences of the Aeolian Islands.

The brand new Gabbiano Relais, located in front of the beach of Ficogrande, was born from the complete renovation of the first and legendary disco on the island: “Il Gabbiano”. The acquisition and the renovation was strongly desired by the owners Vito Russo (Strombolano DOC) and his wife Federica Masin, who met for the first time, right on the Gabbiano dance floor.

Il Gabbiano Relais was born from many years of experience in the hospitality sector and from the desire to offer guests the feeling of home, making their stay a real moment of relaxation.
