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

We came in winter for the spectacular Zingaro Nature Reserve and had a faultless welcome and 2-night stay at this good quality spotlessly clean B&B. The real reward was our exceptional host. She attended to our needs so naturally and flattered us with a warm welcome, local knowledge, and genuine hospitality. So true that people maketh the place.

Great place for Scopello (seen in 5 minutes to be honest) and the surrounding area. Lots of sights a short drive away. The place itself is cozy, welcoming and the food at dinner and breakfast outstanding (so much so that it's a good job the Riserva Naturale dello Zingaro is close by to hike off all those calories!). Great value... More

The adventure is right in the Pensione -- meeting people from all over the world, sharing meals enjoying the quiet town and beauty of surrounding landscape -- this is an ideal place to stay to recoup energy if one's trip has been hectic. So beautiful -- ideal accommodations and good food. Interesting places to visit nearby. Thank you to the... More
