B&B Dai Siciliani Paolo e Paola
Ranked #3 of 103 Marsala B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 July 2016

Paulo and Paula’s is an excellent choice of B&B on the northern edge of Marsala. As has been written, Paulo and Paula are fabulous hosts. The B&B is surrounded by a nice garden where they grow their own fruit/veg/herbs. You will not go hungry, especially if you, like us, wisely choose to eat-in some nights. It’s a tough call though: Paula’s lovely cooking, or strolling around Marsala’s lovely old town at night. Best to do both if you can: no need to decide until you are there. Paulo and Paula’s enthusiasm for all things Sicilian is infectious, and you will always awaken to a wonderful breakfast and go to bed on a wonderful meal. The B&B is located in a quiet neighbourhood, a short-drive into the old town where Paulo can recommend some free all-day parking. It’s also a great base from which to cover the west & south-west of the island. Their free Wi-Fi is fast and reliable.

Our only problem was finding the B&B initially: if you are coming from Trapani come down the main road (SS 115) and when you start entering the suburbs of Marsala look out for a Farmacia on the left hand side (flashing green cross) and then continue carefully looking out for the yellow-capped stone 26km post on your right – just before it you will see an acute left: turn down there and then you need to take about the 5th right hand turn that leads to the B&B. It may be best to do this run once or twice during the day to get some landmarks (a ginormous cactus being one!) before you attempt to locate it at night.

Room Tip: Paulo kindly gave us a choice of available rooms when we arrived which was a nice touch.

My husband and i stayed here on October 20 and 21, 2015. The approach to this B&B does not prepare you for the hidden gem that it is. Behind the entrance gates is an oasis created by warm-hearted people who share their love for their region with strangers who then become friends. Paolo and Paola are masters of the artisanal lifestyle.The inside of this homey B&B is decorated in charming regional style with ceramics and beautifully crafted baskets; the exterior spaces are like a series of outdoor rooms. Guest rooms are comfortable and aesthetically designed with lovely balconies overlooking the lovingly tended gardens. In the morning, Paolo and Paola greeted us with a breakfast feast that included freshly picked exotic fruit, local ricotta fresca and yogurt with honey, delectable pastries, and savory stuffed bread. With years of experience providing hospitality, they anticipate guests' every need and provide great tips on local restaurants and cultural and natural attractions. To get to know these hosts and to stay in their B&B is to encounter Sicily at its best.

Stayed with Paolo and Paola for two nights and couldnt have asked for better. Welcoming coffee and complementary bottle local wine in the room. Paolo very friendly and always helpful, including checking opening hours, driving me to the shops, and guiding us around. Paola very motherly and the best cook around. Dinner consisted of multiple courses much of which came from their garden or else locally. Breakfast was easily the largest and most diverse I have ever seen. Sweets, cakes, cookies, etc along with a big range of cheeses and meats. Cakes, bread, etc all freshly cooked.

Room was good sized and well appointed with private balcony, and there is a large living area for all guests to share. Shower was tight but overwise an excellent room.

What a wonderful stay we had with Paolo and Paola! They were amongst the most warm and welcoming people we met during our time in Sicily. Upon arrival, we were able to find respite from the heat under the trees surrounding their porch whilst sipping on homemade fresh mint ice-tea and grapes picked fresh from their garden. We enjoyed chatting with Paolo very much. He took the time to tell us about the Sicilian culture and taught us some Italian phrases. Nothing was too much trouble and he also made bookings for us in two fabulous restaurants. The room was immaculate with air conditioning and a lovely balcony. Breakfast went above and beyond our expectations. Paola was a chef in Rome for many years and each morning we had around 8 different dishes including delicious home-made pizza and several freshly baked cakes. If you find yourself in the Trapani region, I would highly recommend spending some time with these amazing people!

What a great sojourn we had at B & B Dai Siciliani. A perfect place to stay if you visit Marsala, Trapani, Erice, Mozia. You find on the location many orange trees, almond trees and much more. The breakfasts are fantastic and everything is home-made. We also had the luck to eat a fish couscous made by Paola. Paolo and Paola know how to receive people. We really miss them.
