About the property

House with large outdoor kitchen, living room, 3 bedrooms / 2 baths and night environments

Our 'Arab House' is named after the place where it is located (the old trap of Marzamemi) and its ambience.

Fishing from Arab origins of the name 'Marzamemi' (small port), the house has been completely renovated and furnished in this style - it seems to be already on the other shore of the Mediterranean, in Africa, in Marakesh to be exact, where they come from most of the furniture.

The original house of the '700 fishermen have been realized:

(*), A large living area with sofa, ottoman, coffee table and TV,

(*) A nice kitchen at all points,

(*) An intimate and comfortable master bedroom with adjoining

(*) The bathroom and laundry closet and

(*) A loft as a second sleeping area where there are 2 night rooms (one double and one single bed) divided by

(*) Another bathroom, placed in the center.

Both from the kitchen from the living room leads to the special outdoor area, in addition to being equipped with everything (table, chairs, benches, deckchairs, swing, ...) is also elegantly screen from the large open space adjacent to what was once the clearing of loading and unloading of goods of the old harbor, and today is a lovely square on the sea.

It is a little oasis on the sea, which during most of the year allows you to escape the chaos and stress of modern daily life and take refuge in silence and charm of this beautiful and unspoilt village, enjoy the sea, good food, chat with friends, .... In summer, however, when the village is populated, it allows you to actively participate in his life (day and night) as well as also to withdraw, at any time, in its comfortable and intimate environment 'African'.

Arab House - Charming house of fishermen, the sea, in the trap of the '700
average rating of 5.0 based on 4 reviews


  • 5 of 5

Ho soggiornato con la mia famiglia (5 persone) in questa splendida casa ad agosto 2015. L'accoglienza dei proprietari è stata squisita, la casa è splendida e fornita di tutto ... prodotti da bagno e da cucina, detersivi, tovaglie e quant'altro.

La casa è ben climatizzata e posizionata strategicamente nel centro del paese. La veranda è fruibilissima grazie alla siepe, che garantisce privacy dai numerosi locali appena fuori dalla casa.

Il nostro soggiorno è durato 2 settimane e a metà abbiamo avuto una pulizia completa della casa con cambio biancheria, incluso nel prezzo.

La consiglio a tutti, abbiamo trascorso uno splendido soggiorno!

splendida casa in centro a Marzamemi

  • 5 of 5

casa Marzamemi nella tonnara del 700 in centro, fronte mare, curata e arredata con gusto. Posizione strategica con tanti localini attorno che si animano alla sera, creando una atmosfera suggestiva. Accoglienza dei proprietari eccezionale, come solo la gente del sud sa fare, con prodotti locali in omaggio come benvenuto. Organizzazione impeccabile. Vacanza memorabile.

La più bella casa di Marzamemi,

  • 5 of 5

Io e la mia famiglia abbiamo trascorso negli ultimi due anni le vacanze estive in questa bella casa nel centro di Marzamemi. La casa e' esattamente come si vede nelle foto: e' tutta arredata in stile marocchino con estremo gusto ed è curata ed attrezzata nei minimi dettagli. La veranda e' molto spaziosa e vivibile ed,essendo ben riparata da una siepe, consente di avere privacy nonostante si trovi nel pieno centro del paese ( a differenza delle abitazioni vicine che sono molto più esposte). La posizione della casa e' ideale in quanto è proprio di fronte al mare e a pochi metri dalla piazza principale di Marzamemi con i suoi ristoranti e baretti. I proprietari sono persone squisite che si sono dimostrate pronte a soddisfare ogni nostra esigenza e richiesta con grande attenzione e ospitalità. Torneremo sicuramente a Marzamemi e in questa splendida casa!

Marzamemi today Perla Del Tourism in Sicily, is a small fishing village that is located about 3 km from Pachino. The word, of Arab origin undoubtedly, indicates for each 'the bay of doves' (Marsà to hamen), for others the 'little harbor' (scion memes).

The village was born around the natural harbor (called Balata), he grew up in the span of years before becoming a reference port for local products (fish, cotton, wine, and wine), then, with the expansion of the port to the south, important the center of tuna fishing to finally become, around the middle of '700, the trap most important in eastern Sicily. And 'at that time that was born the township as we know it today, with the vast square and the Valledorata Palace, the Church of the trap and the houses of the sailors. The activity of fishing and tuna processing is continued until the middle of '900. After a period of near oblivion today Marzamemi is experiencing a season of rebirth as a tourist and maritime area and the village which remains exceptionally intact and untouched, he has attracted many illustrious directors (Klaus Maria Brandauer, Giuseppe Tornatore, Gabriele Salvatores, the Taviani brothers, Nello Correale) that you have set countless films.
