The Space

Welcome to Favignana,one of the islands of Egadi.
My apartment is located just a few minutes from the center,that you can reach by foot or bike..Nearby there are also 2 (website hidden) house can host 2 people.There is a comfortable kitchen, bathroom and bed,air conditioned,tv..My flat overlooks a garden,where if you want,it's possible to eat,drink or relax under a big lemon tree!!!I
Guests will not need to bring towels, shower towels and sheets .. and there 's also an iron ....We have a parking for bikes or scooter and at the moment of arrival we come to pick you to the harbor..Favignana is a beautiful Island and is awesome to explore by bike.I think that it's better a mountain bike because a lot of sites of interest are on (website hidden)' s ok to rent a scooter too! Favi is best known for the sea,that you can reach in a few minutes from the home, but there are some interesting sites that I recommend to visit. First of all the Florio Palace near the harbour and above all the ex factory of tuna ,nowadays an amazing museum,by which you can understand the story of Favignana.Close to home there is Cava S. Anna that is an old cave of tufa,where there are sometimes exhibitions,performances,films and more.
Along the dirt roads you can discover the beautiful countryside of the island, especially in spring and autumn, and the wonderful caves of tufa,created by man that used tuff for homes and commerce with Sicily. Don' t miss a visit to the Castle of Santa Caterina to the top of the hill! This simple track allows to admire all the Island and its two parts,the" piana",where there are the harbour,the country of favignana and the most popular sites for swimming, and the "bosco" the wildest part but no less (website hidden) this side of Favignana there are no services for tourists! It can be interesting to explore it!
We will try to help you to spent some good days in the island,giving you the right advice to explore Favignana.We want you feel at home.
I love a lot to host because I like travel and when I cannot go around the world,accomodate people is like traveling staying at home!!!
I can also consider an exchange of flat in some periods of the year! What do you think?
Enjoy Favignana

  • La casetta si trova in una viuzza tranquilla del principale centro abitato dell'isola, vicinissima a supermercati, fornerie, macellerie e pescherie. Si tratta di una sistemazione adatta a due persone, piccola, ma fornita di tutto il necessario: dalla biancheria agli attrezzi per la cucina. È perfino dotata di un delizioso tavolino all'aperto all'ombra di un albero di limoni. Le nostre aspettative non sono certo state tradite, anzi. Leonardo e i suoi familiari si sono rivelati eccezionalmente gentili e disponibili per ogni eventualità. Infine, abbiamo avuto la possibilità di noleggiare due ottime biciclette direttamente da Leonardo ad un prezzo molto conveniente, consigliabilissimo.

  • E' stata un'esperienza indimenticabile a Favignana. Leonardo ed Enzo sono stati super disponibili ed (website hidden) sono venuti a prendere al porto e ci hanno fin da subito dato indicazioni utili per visitare l'isola. La casetta è deliziosa ed accogliente, dotata di tutti i comfort. E' perfetta per 2 persone. Inoltre è situata in una posizione strategica perchè molto vicino al centro del paese, ma comunque in una zona tranquilla e (website hidden) sono 2 supermercati nelle vicinanze. La posizione sull'isola è strategica perchè è proprio al centro, ed è tutto raggiungibile, anche in bicicletta. Torneremo senza dubbio a Favignana, possibilmente in questa casetta. :)

  • Persona molto disponibile ed ospitale, ci ha aspettato al porto per l'arrivo e ci ha suggerito vari ristoranti e altri (website hidden) ha messo a disposizione le biciclette con le quali abbiamo girato tutta l'isola.
    Appartamento semplice, ma dotato di tutti quello che ti puo servire come proprio se fossi a casa tua.
    Situato vicino al centro, ma nello stesso tempo molto silenzioso e riservato.
    Lo consiglio vivamente

  • Piacevole accoglienza. Il signor Leonardo e Enzo sono stati gentilissimi e la loro casettina è stata un ottimo punto di partenza per esplorare l'isola. A due passi dal centro, piccola ma dotata di tutto il necessario, ideale per due persone.

  • I arrived in Favignana off-off-season (January) and was not expecting anything, but it was a delight staying at the family's wonderful cosy guest unit. Enzo was very helpful and communication was smooth. I was picked up from the port, shown around and taken very well cared of. Despite some bad weather days, I had a wonderful time on this marvelous island and hope to come back! Thanks you Enzo for everything and being so nice and friendly!

  • We loved our stay at Leonardo's apartment. The house is very cute and perfect for 2 people. It is well laid out, the bed is comfy, the shower is wonderful, the airconditioning works well and the kitchen has everything you need to make meals at home. We stayed here for 5 nights and were very comfortable.
    We communicated with Enzo (Leonardo's son) through the website and at check out but it was Leonardo who picked us up from the harbour when we arrived. He was very sweet and took the time to show us the 2 main squares of the town, the best restaurants, pasticceria and the best bike hire place. Throughout our stay we felt like we could ask anything and our hosts would be more than happy to help.
    Favignana is a really relaxing place we hired bikes for €3 per day and toured the island stopping off at whatever beach or cove we liked the look of. We also made a trip to Levanzo which was equally beautiful. There are a couple of very good restaurants in the town (5 minutes from the apartment) and a really nice Agriturismo across the island who will pick you up and take you for a really special meal.
    There isn't Internet in the apartment but most if the gelaterias and coffee shops in the town have wifi so you can get an ice cream or a coffee and use the Internet whenever you want.

  • Small but very charming studio apartment for two people in easy walking distance from the center of Favignana, which is excellent because it is close to the buzz of Favignana, but still very quiet. Only draw-back is it has no wifi. Excellent value for money.

  • The apartment is very clean and nice. The communication with Enzo (the son from Leonardo) before we went to Favignana was very easy. Leonardo picked us up at the harbour and showed us around. He explained everything important at the apartment and was there for us when we had any question about the island. During our entire stay we felt comfortable and welcome.
    I would highly recommend this place!
