Huge room with 2 sofas, full length mirror, big bathroom with modern fittings, wardrobe with more wooden hangars than I've ever seen before in a hotel; fresh and locally grown produce served at dinner and breakfast - couldn't want for more. All this in the delightful setting of Scopello. We had only 2 nights here, and would have liked more... More

We loved our stay here. Marisin and her son were both charming and were so friendly and really went out of their way to help. The food was amazing with some of the best food we have had in Sicily both at dinners and breakfast. The room was very clean and comfortable. We mentioned to Marisin that our beach towels... More

We loved Pensione Trachina. It was well-appointed and sophisticated, and felt like a place you'd find in Napa Valley. Marasin was a very warm and personable host; we enjoyed chatting about her interesting life as much as about Scopello. The real standout were the meals. Only B&B guests dine at Trachina but the cuisine was as fresh and delicious as... More

Pensione Trachina was a lovely place to stay, great situation close to the Zingaro reserve and the Tonnerie and in the tiny village of Scopello. What stood out though was the exceptional warmth and kindness of Marisin. She made it feel as if she was welcoming us to her home as special guests and nothing would be too much trouble.... More

Turned up early and was welcomed anyhow. The room was very nice - although a bit of a shock for someone who likes football to discover there's no TV during the world cup - and the breakfasts were excellent - I want a juicer now. We didn't eat the evening meal as can never get through the whole generosity of... More

Pensione Tranchina is exceptional. Marasin is very welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are very comfortable and of a high standard. We had a sea view. The meals are excellent using locally sourced delicious food. It is near the beautiful Zingaro nature reserve with its lovely little coves.

Almost at one end of Scopello’s sweet 2-block main street / mini-plaza, Pensione Tranchina’s cheery 3-storey village façade (somewhat nondescript other than its impressively large and heavy wood double front doors) belies the very high standard of service you’ll find inside. We’d read of Marasin’s warm, personable, convivial but genuine hospitality (and she is delightful and attentive to every guest),... More

We are just getting back from our 2 week Sicilian Adventure and starting it off at Pensione Tranchina was simply perfect! We can't stop talking about Marisin and her wonderful staff. She goes above and beyond to make you feel right at home. The first 2 days of our stay was cloudy, rainy, and chilly! We had not packed for... More

Perfect stop in a small quaint village. Rooms are fresh and clean. Some with balconies and sea views. Biggest star is the proprietor who handles everything with great efficiency. Introduces everyone over an evening aperitif. Then explains the menu as you go along. All local organic produce for evening meal and breakfast. Really warm friendly person.

My husband and I have just come back from a weeks stay and apart from one night ate there every evening. Our room had a small balcony which we were able to sit out on and look at the sea. Bed very comfortable and large too. At the end of each day walking in the nature reserve we came back... More
