What a find. After a busier start to our holiday on the East side of the island, arriving at L'antica Cascina del Golfo, tucked in the hills around a mile from the quaint and charming fishing village of Scopello, we were quickly aware that this is a very special place. A warm welcome from hosts Giovanna and Giuseppe combined with one of the most breathtaking 180 degree panoramas I have ever seen of the entire bay of Castellammare del Golfo made this a holiday destination to remember.

Rooms are very comfortable and well equipped (air conditioned / reasonably priced mini bar) without being spectacular in themselves, but where these come alive is with the french windows opening out from each onto the view below.

Breakfast was a real treat, with a wide variety of cereals/fruits complimented by freshly baked local flans.

Scopello is just discovering its potential as a smaller tourist destination, and is absolutely delightful. Spend a day swimming off the old tuna plant, before heading into the town for a meal at one of the many very fine restaurants.

A perfect place for a romantic, tranquil holiday. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Definitely go for one with a sea view. Further along the terrace means fewer people passing your fro...

If you want spectacular views and authentic Italian hospitality, this is the place for you.
Neat rooms that open out on to a shared terrace overlooking the delightful Scopello bay area.
The hosts Giovanna and Giuseppe were so friendly and accommodating providing local tips and a fabulous breakfast, which was taken on the terrace.
A cooked breakfast and a different freshly baked mouthwatering Italian cake was made every day, including the famous 'little tube' the Cannoli!
There was plenty of space to lounge and enjoy the sun and views.
Easy access to Palermo, the beautiful Guidaloca pebble beach and amazing Segesta historical site.
It was great value and we did not want to leave!
We had a room in the middle which was fine but everyone had to walk past us so it was not easy to enjoy the view and maintain privacy.
This is a hilltop B&B which meant it was a little too far to walk down and back from Scopello village (which had great restaurant choices), especially if you want to wear high heels and look as glamorous as the Italians! We drove and paid EUR3 for parking each night and had to go easy on the drinks. It was all worth it to enjoy the stunning views!

Room Tip: Rooms at the far end will provide more privacy and just a little further to walk.

Situated about 1km up an unmade road, the B&B is distinguished by its stunning views, morning, noon and night, and the quality of the breakfasts - which is what one wants in a B&B along with reasonable rooms. The nearby town, Scopello, has some good restaurants. There is a three euro parking fee. The national park beyond Scopello provides stunning walks at various elevations above the shore and decent swimming at intervals along the way.

Enjoy the stunning views in this charming B&B! Our room was basic but clean, and the location and friendliness of the host make this a great place to stay. Breakfast offers all you need,with a DELICIOUS pistachio cake as climax. We hope to return here some day!

An absolute highlight of our nine-day trip. Fabulous location, easy to find and a great base for visiting the region. Perched above the most beautiful views of Scopello and Catellamare del Golfo, surrounded by wildflower and mountains. We enjoyed the wonderful hospitality of Giovanna who was so helpful and kind. Our room with a sea view was very comfortable with a single mattress queen-size bed (a treat in Sicily where the 2-twin bed pressed together is usual), the room and bathroom extremely well-equipped and lovely. Breakfast is fantastic including brioches but also homemade delicious cakes, savory options including eggs made by request as well as cappuccino, all served on a beautiful spacious terrace overlooking the sea. We will definitely return and stay longer. So calm and wonderful. An absolute highlight of our trip!

Room Tip: Views in all directions are lovely but seaside in particular
