I don't know what the attraction is for this town. The owner of the Pensione is very nice, however we did not have luck with the rooms. We had booked two rooms. Upon arrival there were 3 rooms available. One on the first floor (our friends took because he could not walk more than one flight of stairs). Our choice... More

All I can say is wow! I was a bit skeptical when my wife told me that we were booked at a B&B that included breakfast and dinner. All I thought about was what it would be like if I didn't like the food. Knowing how picky I am I just couldn't imagine there not being any problems. Finally, months... More

Marisín, who runs Pensione Tranchina, is a charming and accommodating host. She has lived in Scopello for years, and she runs this lovely home where her husband was born with great skill and warmth. Of course, she speaks perfect English and knows a great deal about this beautiful area of Sicily, and is always available to advise her guests. The... More

Marisin has created a wonderfully welcoming environment for her visitors. A cheerful greeting upon arrival. Nicely decorated rooms, comfortable beds and lovely linens. Everything spic-and-span clean. Plenty of hot water in the shower. A real hair dryer. A mini-fridge and safe in every room. Breakfasts are delicious: breads, fruits, cheeses, baked goods, home-made jams made from local fruit. You can... More

We stayed here 16 years ago and loved it then - it's even better now. Marisin, the proprietor, is a love. The experience is more like staying in a dear friend's home rather than a hotel. The meals are great, the rooms are very comfortable, and Scopello is a super place to be based if you are touring the sites... More

We stayed here for four days at the start of our trip thru Sicily. You can cover a lot of area from this location. And host Marasin was wonderful, very accommodating in every aspect. The rooms where very clean and we had a nice view of the sea. A great place to relax after your flight to Sicily.

We booked for 2 nights but were lucky enough to tag an extra night on due to a cancellation. Marasin is a most attentive host who will happily share her extensive local knowledge with her guests. We had a lovely big room with a balcony and sea view. Breakfast consisted of fresh local ingredients, homemade bread and DIY juices made... More

Marisin Tranchina is the hostess with the mostest! Staying at Pensione Tranchina is like being invited to stay at your best friend's renovated villa in Sicily Only your best friend has a very sure hand in the kitchen and grows most of what she serves in her dining room in her garden. I'm not just talking greens and small meaty... More

After reading all the positive reviews and speaking to Marisin on the phone, I was so excited to stay at Pensione Tranchina for the last 3 nights of our 3 week vacation in Sicily. I didn't realize until we arrived, that Scopello is only a small hamlet. When we approached the entrance to the hotel we were a little taken... More
