Pensione Tranchina Scopello
Ranked #1 of 12 Scopello B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 17, 2013

If you're lucky enough (book your room a bit in advance) to stay here, it certainly lives up to its tripadvisor reviews. Lovely clean rooms, with all the necessary mod cons like ac, personal safe, fridge in room, right in the centre of Scopello but with little or no street noise. The evening meals are terrific (especially if you love fresh fish, beautifully cooked) and the breakfasts delicious. The nightly rate is frankly a bargain. Scopello has lots of lovely bars and is a great place to people watch, but you can also walk down to the sea for a quick dip. However, for me the best bit about Pensione Tranchina is the fantastic atmosphere that comes from Marasin, Salvatore and their staff really caring about their guests. You'll meet interesting people and leaving feeling warmed by the hospitality of the whole Tranchina family . Unmissable!

Room Tip: I like Rooms 9 and 10 at the top of the house

Absolutely charming place. Marisia and Salvatore are extremely generous and friendly hosts.
We had chosen Scopello and this pension as we were looking for a relaxed place with charm and character and we were not disappointed. We stayed for 6 nights and i can honestly say it was one of the best most relaxing holidays i have ever had.

This B&B is outstanding. Very clean, very neat, excellent breakfast, extremely kind people. I had an accident and needed to go the hospital in the middle of the night. The son of the house went above and beyond and took me in his own car. Stayed with me in the hospital, collected my daughter the next day and picked me up. An OUTSTANDING service and kindness. I can recommend the Pensione Tranchina Scopello more than highly, and then Scopello is also a lovely tranquil village...............

We stayed for 3 nights and wished we had planned for more. Marisia & Salvatore were so welcoming That we felt like part of the family. The room was spotless and comfortable with a lovely view of the sea, the meals were wonderful, local cooking at its best with fresh home grown ingredients. We had planned on B&B only but ended up half board! Aperitifs offered by Marisia before dinner gave an opportunity to meet other guests from around the world and compare notes on the day's experiences. We highly recommend this lovely Pension!

Room Tip: Well worth the little extra for a room with balcony and view.

We stayed here based on the other reviews on Trip Advisor and found it to be a great holiday spot. The B&B has a great location just off the main square and the hosts are friendly and helpful - providing us with advice for visiting nearby attractions. We also stayed for the dinner which actually was delicious. Guests meet downstairs in the restaurant for a pre dinner drink and to meet other guests and dinner is 3 courses of lovely food (seafood menu). Dinner is all wrapped up at about 10.30pm so although there is a bit of restaurant noise that travels up the stairs to the rooms (for those not eating at the B&B), it doesn't last into the night so you can still get a good sleep.

Parking in the off season is on the road opposite the B&B which is convenient. There is a car park on the town entrance for 2 euros a day if you miss out on a park.

If you're staying for a while, the breakfast can get a bit samey, but there is always some home baking provided with meals - cakes and slices of different kinds which is a nice touch.

I should have joined this site years ago to review this pensione, as my wife and I stayed there twice because we liked it so much. Marisin and Salvatore were wonderful hosts - really, you couldn't ask for nicer people. And the food sometimes touched the heights.

Room Tip: Some of the higher rooms have views of the sea. Ask Marisin at the time of booking.

Segesta and to hike in Zingaro. Plug in coordinates n38.07047, e12.81770 and you'll easily find Pensione Tranchina. About 30 - 40 minutes from Palermo Airport. Spent 4 nights here mid-May 2013. Had two dinners at Tranchina and two dinners at Il Bagio in the Piazza and of course all the terrific breakfasts, great coffee, there. Agree with all the accolades for the pensione. Marisee is an exceptional owner, expert tour guide and eventually a very good friend. We'll be back!

Room Tip: Pay a little more for room 9 and get the sea view. Room 4 is also very nice.
