Wellness and hospitality

The key word that best describes our concept of hospitality is “family”.
In fact, the hotel is run by the Bolano family, who built it in the 1980s and have been managing it directly since 2013, treating it like their own home.
This is the philosophy that we have applied to welcome and pamper all our guests for ten years now.
Smiling faces, friendliness, helpfulness and a genuine desire to fulfill your requests, combined with the fantastic professionalism of our staff, are the ingredients that make your stay at the Hotel Airone exceptionally relaxing.
It’s no coincidence that our customers tend to return season after season and we have established a real friendship with many of them.
We like to think of ourselves as an island within an island, your home by the sea, a warm and family-friendly place where you can retreat and enjoy a holiday full of serenity and well-being.

Imagine greenery that couldn't be more luxuriant, the perfume of tamarisks, the fragrance of wild rosemary and the salty scent of the sea. Listen to the music of the surf, let yourself be caressed by the warm breeze that redefines the horizon of one of the most bewitching gulfs in the Mediterranean every day.
Breathe, listen and look around.
You're at the Hotel Airone, your perfect getaway, your home by the sea.






Our history

The history of our hotel is closely connected to the one of the Bolano family who built it in the 1980s and who have managed it directly since 2013.
We like to stress this because the hotel tradition and the so-to-speak family style of the Airone are the added value that our guests will be able to enjoy during their stay. In an era when so many types of accommodation are owned by large companies and suffer from a sort of “depersonalisation” in terms of services and atmosphere, our hotel instead has the privilege of being managed by people who have a close relationship with the local area and its residents, who are there in the hotel with their guests and like to make themselves known.
Built in 1984 by Angelo Bolano, together with his sons Elvio and Mario, the Airone has always had an innate vocation for the “beautiful and healthy” and ever since it first went into business it has proved to be a perfect hotel for welcoming couples, families with children and groups looking for relaxation and good living.
For ten years our Manager, or “Directora” as we like to call her, has been Angela Bolano under whose management the standard of hospitality has risen even higher, through paying special attention to the hotel guests and revamping the range of services and activities.
