Rifugio al Mare, the "refuge at the seaside", is where you can retreat to, if you wish to breathe easy again and let new impressions enhance your holidays. Family Trincali's two charming holiday apartments are found in prime location, right by the sea.
Each apartment comes with a terrace where you can relax and enjoy your 'private' view of the sea. One of Marzamemi's sandy beaches lies so-to-speak right at your feet, it is only 50 m from Rifugio al Mare.
Above all during low season Marzamemi radiates the charm of an idyllic, Sicilian fishing village. 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 ground-floor apartment for four persons includes two cozy bedrooms (double bed each) and two bathrooms (shower cabin/WC/bidet, hair dryer each). As one of the bedrooms opens onto the terrace, the idea of "from your bed right into the water" might not be too farfetched.
The living room is furnished with, amongst others, a TV, a sofa and two cozy chairs, the adjoining dining/kitchen area (incl. stove, oven, fridge-freezer, microwave) also opens onto the terrace by the sea.
Furnishing of the apartment includes air conditioning in all the rooms except for the kitchen, washing machine and fly screens.
The apartment's highlight is the terrace, because where it ends, the sea begins. In the outdoor area you find garden furniture, a sunshade, a grill and an outdoor shower at your disposal.
An external staircase runs up to the apartment for six persons on the 1st floor. It includes three bedrooms and three bathrooms (shower cabin/WC/bidet, hair dryer each). Two of the bedrooms face the sea and open onto a French balcony each.
Furnishing of the open living-dining room includes a sofa, a kitchen unit (incl. stove, oven, fridge-freezer, microwave), dining furniture and TV. A spiral staircase runs up to the apartment's roof terrace, from where you have got 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.
Furnishing of the apartment includes air conditioning with heating system in all the rooms, washing machine and fly screens.
Guests staying at Rifugio al Mare have got free WiFi access.
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 Rifugio al Mare. In the early morning, you could take a short walk to Bar Ciclope, which offers 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 stop by there for 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: When we were on site, 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. Marzamemi has got its piazza, San Lorenzo has got its sandy beach. Many local Sicilians consider it the most beautiful beach far and wide and it comes as no surprise that its very well organized lidi are much frequented during the summer months.
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.
