I have been there for a week. We had a room for 4 in the main building accessible only through the private courtyard. The place is amazing, the natural context too. Never seen so many fishes near the beach. The private beach is a must because during day time the "public" part is invaded by tons of visitors. So it... More

This is simply a different kind of experience. An old tuna fish community made of original buildings all reconverted in a simple but comfortable way. All rooms are very spacious and overlook the sea. They have cooking facilities too. There is no traditional reception area but you are given keys by a warden and the place is yours to wander... More

It's an amazing corner of Sicily, with a beautiful see, a beautiful landscape. Too bad you have to pay 3,50 Euro to get in, I'm not sure wether it is legal or not. The shore is very polluted and invaded with noisy turists, babies everywhere! Visit is far from summer! Such a shame!

We were two couples travelling in low season (rainy November). Despite our arrival during a torrential downpour, we found shelter, warmth, and an unforgettable experience at Tonnara di Scopello. The caretaker Mohammed was very welcoming and was able to communicate well enough in French, which made up for our very limited Italian vocabulary. We stayed in two sea-front rooms: Ancore... More

It is really a heartstoppingly beautiful place. and being so close to the sea makes it more so. The history also. However. for the money there are a few major niggles. the beach is invaded every day and these fellow tourists frequently invaded our apparently private space to take photos, nosey around etc. The Taverna B in my opinion has...

The location of this place is really lovely, and for those looking for a serene spot it couldn't get much better. I liked the apartment (in the administrator's section), and the simple furnishings have a lot of character that suited the place very well. For wanting to read a book and get a lot of sun and turn off the... More

We stayed here for 5 nights in September and, honestly, could have stayed longer. I'm utterly baffled by some of the reviews on here regarding the Tonnara. It's made painfully clear - before you even book the accomodation - what you should expect. As an old tuna fishery, Mohammaed, the owner, has tried to maintain its traditional appearance. And it...

like nearly all the other reviews, we have to agree that the location is super, but the rest is quite poorly going to a bad rating for the rooms. We were allowed to take the dog with, they didn't mind when we asked when booking the place. But having a dog there is a different story, the lady owner Danielle,... More
