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

My husband and I spent 2 weeks in Sicily this October, and our stay at the Pensione Tranchina was the highlight of the trip. It's location in the tiny town of Scopello, right next to the local café was perfect for visiting the Zingaro Nature Reserve, the ruins of Segesta, Erice, and countless other sites that Sicily has to offer....

This is a charming, tiny town right by the Zingharo Nature Reserve, and this a charming guesthouse just off the main square, overlooking olive groves and the valley. Great base if you have a car for exploring local reserve. We also enjoyed the weekly farmer's market in the square while we were there. It's in a small three storey building... More

Her inn is filled with lovely furnishings, the linens... More
