Rifugio al Mare, your "refuge at the seaside", is where you can retreat to, if you wish to breathe freely again and let new impressions enhance your holidays. Family Trincali's two charming holiday apartments are found in prime location, right by the sea.
Enjoy your private view of the sea from the terraces of the two apartments. One of Marzamemi's sandy beaches lies right at your feet, it is only 50 m from Rifugio al Mare.
Your holiday resort Marzamemi has preserved the charm of an idyllic, Sicilian fishing village, which you feel and become aware of above all during low season. From June to September, however, you experience vibrant Italian summer and beach life. In the evenings, it takes place mainly in beautiful Piazza Santa Margherita, which is framed by restaurants, bars and nicely decorated shops.
The cozy holiday apartment for four persons includes two cozy bedrooms with a double bed each and two bathrooms with shower cabin, hair dryer, bidet and WC. One of the bedrooms offers direct access of the terrace. So you might turn "from your bed right into the water" into reality.
The living room with TV, sofa and two cozy chairs as well as a dining area also opens onto the terrace by the sea. So does the kitchen, which is furnished, amongst others, with stove, oven, refrigerator with freezer compartment and microwave.
Except for the kitchen all the rooms have got air conditioning. Furnishing of the apartment also includes washing machine and fly screens.
The apartment's highlight surely is its terrace, because where it ends, the sea begins. Garden furniture and a parasol on the terrace as well as an outdoor shower and a grill are also at your disposal.
An external staircase runs up to the holiday apartment on the 1st floor of the house. Three double bedrooms and three bathrooms with shower cabin, hair dryer, bidet and WC each offer comfort for six persons. Two of the bedrooms face the sea and include a French balcony each.
Furnishing of the open living-dining room includes a sofa, a kitchenette with stove, oven, refrigerator with freezer compartment and microwave, a dining area and TV. A spiral staircase runs up to your private roof terrace, which offers a view of the harbor of Marzamemi and the sea. On the furnished, partly shaded roof terrace you find a grill at your disposal as well as a counter top where you can prepare your meals.
Air conditioning with heating system is found in all the rooms. Furnishing of the 1st-floor apartment also includes washing machine and fly screens.
Free WiFi access is available to the guests staying at Rifugio al Mare.
You can park your car in public parking spaces along the road in front of the house.
The nearest restaurants and bars are about 100 m from the holiday accommodation. In the early morning do take a short walk to Bar Ciclope, which offers by far the best cornetti far and wide. You should absolutely try these Italian breakfast classics with pistachio cream.
Central Piazza Santa Margherita with more restaurants and stores is about 850 m off. Marzamemi's hip bars are found above all around the old fishing harbor and the tonnara. The first guests of the day to stop there are those who wish to savor an aperitif. The bars really come to life on mild Sicilian summer nights, often with live music and with bar keepers who never seems to tire.
A small supermarket is found about 350 m off. For bigger shopping you should take a ride to neighboring Pachino.
Our shopping tip: Onsite we were made aware of and recommended the organic white wine of Cantina Milazzo. It is offered, for example, at Campisi's, not far from the old tonnara.
It is only 3 km to San Lorenzo, which borders on nature reserve Oasi Vendicari to the north. If pizza goes for Marzamemi, the sandy beach goes for San Lorenzo. Many local Sicilians consider it the most beautiful beach far and wide. So it comes as no surprise that during the summer months its very well organized lidi are much frequented.
If you prefer a bit more quiet, continue on towards Oasi Vendicari, where you also find beautiful and gently sloping beach sections. Quite a number of these sections are without service. The same goes for the beaches within the nature reserve, entry into which however has to be paid for.
Nearest airport/harbor: Catania (ca. 100 km)
