Favignana is shaped like a butterfly, the two wings are the two plains, one called 'The Forest' lying to the west and the other called 'the Plain' lying to the east. At the center is the mountain S. Caterina (302 mt). The coast stretches for 33 Km caraterizzata beaches and clay pits in the eastern, middle nell'atra coves of rock. The sea is crystal clear, diving in the depths of great interest for divers who find themselves in a still alive with exciting flora and fauna to be discovered.

The tuff with its quarries (pirrere) is the symbol of the island and until not so long ago a vital economic resource, used for houses of Arab style, square with terraces above to collect water.

In north-eastern coast there are the remains of a makeshift pool from Roman times, called 'the women's bathroom', carved into the limestone that received water from the sea through a pipe underground.

On the west side of the island, on the mountain S. Catherine, behind the Stack opens the cave more interesting and evocative, that of 'Uccerie' or stalactites.

Abbiamo affittato la casa Piffero a metà agosto. Io, mio marito e i nostri 4 amici abbiamo scoperto come si può stare al centro del paese in pieno agosto e godere della tranquilla serenità del Baglio.

La casa è affascinante, con un sapore antico e familiare. Abbiamo cucinato il pesce freschissimo comprato al porto nella bella e corredata cucina bevendo il buon vino che la padrona di casa ci ha fatto trovare in fresco. E' stata una vacanza perfetta. Siamo partiti con l'isola nel cuore...

Splendida vacanza nell'isola della farfalla

  • 5 of 5

Siamo stati al Baglio nella seconda metà di agosto. Abbiamo scelto la casa Arco che ci sembrava la più suggestiva e la più adatta anche ai nostri bambini.

Siamo stati benissimo!!! Ottima

l'accoglienza è ottimo il vino che i proprietari ci hanno fatto trovare in frigo. Il posto è silenzioso e pieno di fiori, vicinissimo alla piazza del paese ma lontano dalla movida isolana. Insomma è stata

una splendida vacanza e speriamo di tornare anche il prossimo anno.

Il baglio del piffero ... sentirsi a casa

  • 5 of 5

Rossana volevo salutarla e ringraziarla, anche a nome dei miei cari, per il piacevole soggiorno trascorso al Piffero. Che dire, ci siamo sentiti a casa. Abbiamo apprezzato tutto... ottimo vino incluso, gentilmente offerto. Un plauso anche ai suoi collaboratori, discreti ed efficienti. Le auguro le migliori delle estati. Cordialmente. Cosimo

Great location, lovely apartments

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in one of these apartments (L'Arco), the location is fantastic - a five minute walk into central Favignana, if that. One of a small group of lovely apartments, that remain very secluded and quiet. The apartment had everything we needed to cook for ourselves, and a lovely terrace and outdoor dining area. We would have loved to have seen a little bit more information on the surrounding area (things to do, tips on where to hire bicycles, day/boat trip recommendations etc etc) - but when we had problems Rossana was extremely helpful - promptly fixed the wifi upon our arrival and has very kindly posted me back my favourite jumper that I mistakenly left behind - thank you Rosanna! Overall we loved our stay at L'Arco and would definitely recommend.

Abbiamo soggiornato al Baglio del Piffero, nella casa Arco, dal 2 al 9 ottobre 2014. ci siamo trovati benissimo, l'appartamento è curato e funzionale e il servizio biancheria è comodissimo per chi viaggia in aereo e può così evitare di portarsi lenzuola etc. E' stata la prima volta a Favignana e lo consiglio a quanti non ci sono mai stati anche per la posizione: è in paese e consente di raggiungere il centro a piedi.
