Favignana 'Pieds dans l'Eau'
A house 'pieds dans l'eau': a beautifully designed, family-run five-bedroom hotel which is right on the sea and has been fashioned from restored fishermen’s cottages.
Surrounded by decked areas, some sun-drenched, others shaded, the whitewashed rustic-chic hotel blends original architectural features with beautiful linen, cherry parquet floors and huge bathtubs carved out of rock.

In what is now a temple of industrial archeology you can have a guided tour of the establishment of tuna Florio, wacthing historical films and videos related to the 'mattanza' of the tuna (the tuna traditional fishing).
White calcarenite stone used to be extracted in Favignana till the sixties. Today quarries represent a unique attraction, one may visit both the old, delightful and charming quarries and the modern ones with the huge scenery and the “underground caverns” obtained by the patience and engineering skill of the old quarrier, the so called “pirriaturi”; finally, the garden-quarries, a mixture of plants and capers, pomegranates and figs smell typical of the island.
