Pensione Tranchina...please respond

Vagabonda, maybe you can help. I'm trying to book 2 rooms at the Pensione Tranchina for next May, but they have not responded to my emails. Are they away on vacation? Maybe their computer systems are down? I don't know exactly. But I do wish I knew if they had availability or not so that I can continue with my search. But I'm hoping I won't have to look any further, because I'd really like to stay here. Mille grazie for your help!

Chester9cat, I understand your concerns. After many weeks of internet and phone problems, Marisin just replied to my emails 2 days ago. So I'm sure she will also do the same for you as soon as she gets the issues resolved.

Pensione Tranchina is so genuine Chester9cat - You'll love tiny Scopello and Zingaro, the coast, the views, this warm and friendly family.....

Just to confirm what others have said about slow email response. I emailed Pensione Tranchina the first week of April (for an October booking) and just heard back this past Friday.

FYI, I requested a sea view - no luck - all booked by January!

I called directly to confirm our reservation -and spoke to Marisin - what a lovely gal. Now I'm really looking forward to our stay.

Yes, ringing and speaking directly with Marisin is best, and yes, she is lovely!

And the Pensione Tranchina is a true family-owned pensione in the very best sense, so enjoy!
