Leo was such a down to earth relaxed host! I enjoyed my stay and cannot wait to return for a longer visit. Absolutely the most restful part of my visit to Sicily. The indoor furnishings are high quality, I did not hear my neighbors at all!! Patio was delightful and the use of the bicycle and snorkel gear made my... More

From the moment Leo greeted us at the port we loved this place. A quick tour of Favignana town on the way increased our admiration of his welcoming approach to hospitality. On arrival at the beautifully planted and presented accommodations just outside the town we were shown to a pretty studio with it's own balcony. We intended to stay one... More

Borgo, as the owner calls it, is a fantastic place where you can have a calm and comfortable escape from city rush and stress. perfect location in the middle of the island, near by wonderful spots and beaches just below the promontorio (when the sun goes down you have a special view of castle on the mountain). Giuseppe a.k.a. Puccio,... More

We still talk about our stay with Puccio, even though it was low season this was easily one of the best holidays we had. The accomodation itself it superb with a modern, clean bathroom with shower and separate sink area. You have your own small kitchen, should you want to eat in and plenty of hanging space with large wardrobes.... More

Stayed in il Principino in Favignana last Summer, mid August. location just outside Favignana town is good, peaceful countryside yet only ten mins walk to town centre with it's bars and restaurants. Ten min bike ride to the beach. The facility for self catering good and everything was clean and functional. Saved a lot of money cooking for ourselves. Table... More

My partner and I stayed here for four nights in September during our third trip to Favignana and it was the best place we have stayed. Pucio, the owner, is very helpful. He picked us up from the port, moved us to a bigger apartment when it became available and booked and paid for a taxi back to the port... More

Location was wonderful, on the foot of the hill, just a few 100 meters outside the town limits, so very quiet, but still within walking distance of the port. rooms were not too big but you spend most of the time outside i guess. we did have a small kitchenette, adequately equipped. Owner/manager was very nice and extremely helpful in... More
