It is pretty clear that Pensione Tranchina is the place to stay whilst visiting Scopello. It's centrally located right by the main piazza and only 15-20 min walk down to the nearest beach. The rooms are well appointed with simple, tasteful furnishing and air-conditioning. Marisin is a charming hostess, very friendly and informative. She took the time to make us... More

To be honest, there's very little we can add to the hundreds of brilliant reviews that Pensione Tranchina already has on here - it's just a great place, run by a lovely lady and serving brilliant dinners every evening. The location in the centre of tiny Scopello is perfect for a stroll or a trip to the bar after dinner,... More

Just returned from a month long trip in Sicily- Pensione Tranchina was the best place we stayed at during our trip. We spent our first week there and loved it so much we returned to spend our last few days there. We loved the location. Scopello is a wonderful, small village. We were able to walk down the hill to... More

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
