This was our first time to Sicily, and to Scopello. We couldn't have asked for a better experience and this is in no short part to the wonderful stay we had at Pensione Tranchina. From the initial call about making a booking to our sad departure, Marisin (the hostest with the mostest) was an absolute pleasure to deal with. She... More

This is the second time we've stayed here, and it's such a lovely experience! Marisin and Salvatore's lovely Pensione, only about ten rooms, cool, calm and spacious. An interesting and unusual breakfast to tickle your taste buds, now with blender power! Carrot, celery and pear smoothie? Why not! No pressure to eat supper in, choose on the day, but if... More

I visited scopello in May , what a jewel of a village, hills, pretty bays and nature trails in a tranquil setting. Pensione tranchina is in 'downtown scopello' ( the village boasts of two tiny streets 😊) as Marisann, the owner of the pensione explained ! Pensione Tranchina is kept in pristine condition, clean, well sized rooms, and prettily decorated.... More

Just back from a wonderful week staying at Marisisn's B&B. We've stayed at many places - but this one is truly the best in every way. We will be back -as soon as we can! Marisin has created a beautiful spot in the middle of a wonderful village. I can't praise it enough. Anyone lucky enough to get a room... More

Marisin at Pensione Tranchina gets it all right. The rooms are simple,comfortable and perfectly clean. The food is the best that Sicily can offer. Breakfast is a wonderful combination of fresh fruit and veg, DIY fruit juice,delicious bread, local cheeses, olive oil, honey and home made cakes. Dinner is an event; a set menu of 4 courses preceded by a... More

We have stayed all over the world in B&B's and this one is in our top 10. What a gem located in a small town. We were not expecting the hospitality and great food. The room was very nice and the beds were great. The history of the house and family are quite fascinating. If you have time as Marisin... More

Pensione Tranchina is one of the best places we've ever stayed at, anywhere in the world. We booked another trip to Sicily this year just so we could come back to it. Everything people said before is true. Marisin, the hostess, is fantastic, super-friendly and welcoming. The place is spotlessly clean, the top rooms (lots of stairs!) have sea views.... More

My husband and I stayed at Pensione Tranchina for 2 nights , and wish we could have stayed longer. The warmth and attention to detail by Marisin make it very special. Our room was lovely and the decor throughout add to the charm. Breakfast is fabulous, and I can readily admit that it was the best we've ever had anywhere... More

This Pensione was the best place I stayed AND ate in all of Sicily! It is situated only 1k from Zingara Reserve in quaint and quite Scopello. Marisin is a wonderful and natural host and makes certain all your needs are met. The rooms are modern, clean and beautifully decorated. The dinner was amazing...four courses of perfectly prepared specialties of... More
