A few days ago I was in one of the most wonderful hotels in Sicily, The Cupola Bianca**** Resort, for the page Glihoteldifillyourhomewithlove.
Thanks to the direct Neos flight Bologna-Lampedusa, in a little more than an hour I got to this small island plunged in the Mediterranean Sea. A real paradise on earth. Before telling you about the hotel and its wonderful rooms, I want to say a few words about Lampedusa.
In Lampedusa there are no illegal immigrants and above all they do not land along its coast. I mean to tell you about that through my own experience. I had the opportunity to enjoy the island both on land and by the sea and I assure you that there is a calm situation. Let us say that the news about Lampedusa spread by the media give us nothing but a sensation of precariousness and uneasiness. I do not hide you my hesitation before leaving, but a chat with the Captain of the Coast Guard cleared up any doubt of mine!
You have to know that the illegal immigrants are rescued at about 240 km off the coast of Lampedusa and taken to a facility on the island, then, in less than 24 hours, they are sent all over the Italian country.
While I was there, more than 4000 immigrants were rescued and I did not realized anything in spite of the small dimensions of the island ( about 30 square kilometers). How could all those people stay there?
Lampedusa is a real little gem, the Italian Formentera, with its crystal waters and its nice temperature.
Its seven beaches are in the South of the island and each of them deserves to be seen. The most famous of them, even at an international level, is the beach of The Rabbits Island, the most beautiful beach in the world according to Tripadvisor. Furthermore, the Caretta Caretta turtles use to lay their eggs here.
I advise you to enjoy a day on boat, too. It takes a little time to sail around the whole island, visiting all its small bays and its unspoiled beaches.
The Cupola Bianca****Resort.
Customers’s evaluation: Excellent! Mine, too.
The Cupola Bianca**** Resort is located in a wide, green area, full of flowers and local vegetation, at a short distance from the most wonderful beaches of Lampedusa, Sicily. The swimming-pool area, placed in the middle of the resort, is surrounded by palm trees, olive trees, hibiscus, carob trees and bouganvilles.
You can choose among four kinds of rooms: Standard, Superior, Suite and Dammusi, that I personally recommend you.
The Dammuso is a typical structure with an independent entrance and a wide relax area next to the entrance with a large verandah where you can relax reading a book or sipping a good drink. Inside there are wide spaces both for the bedroom and for the bathroom, with an extra comfortable shower outside, typical of this kind of structure.
As regards the design, the whole hotel respects the standards of the island and reflects perfectly the Sicilian style thanks to the materials and the stones used to build it.

I had dinner in the hotel during the gala soirée and, as you can see in the videos I have posted on my social channels, details and quality are very accurate. Local products, fish cooked according to the oldest traditions in Lampedusa, fried food and any kind of delicacies!
I can do nothing but express a very good impression about Lampedusa and Sicily, its inhabitants, their hospitality, their facilities and everything they gave me in 48 hours only!
I recommend you to go there and why not, to tell me about your own experience.
