We stayed here five nights to celebrate the local festival of San Giuseppe, St. Joseph, which is also the day when Italians celebrate Father's Day. San Giuseppe is the patron saint of the island, so there are several days of special events, including marching bands, fireworks, special bread, mass in the piazza, a slow procession of the saints (St. Joseph and St. Francis Paolo) through the streets of town.
The apartment was very comfortable, well-equipped, and conveniently located. Weather is variable at this time of the year, but it was great for hiking around the island. There were few tourists, mostly family members returning for the March 19th festival.
We hope to return to Marettimo soon and stay at the Dimora Tipica.
