Lida and Giuseppe, after thirty years of experience in the hotel industry both abroad and in Italy, he as Chef and she as Hotel Manager, decide to settle down in Marzamemi, Sicily. They decided to takeover the family home located in the village of Marzamemi in the province of Siracusa, where Giuseppe’s grandmother “Antonina” lived. She was the daughter of the last “Raïs” (Captain) of the “tonnara” (trap). The house was his gift to his daughter and her family.  The choice of the name ” MaNanna ” in Sicilian means ” My Grandmother “, in honour of Nonna Antonina.

After a complete refurbishment , Lida and Giuseppe decide to open the doors of their home and welcome guests in a warm and relaxing atmosphere. It is open to all of those that wish to experience the real Sicilian hospitality.

About Us

VOTO 10 | Booking.com “Structure really nice, located practically 5 minutes walk from the famous square of Marzamemi but at the same time very private and quiet. Very well furnished room in shabby chic style! The managers made us feel immediately at home. Very nice thought for guests to find a little sweet surprise in the room! Very good breakfast with products made directly by the owner and very varied.”

Ho soggiornato 4 giorni in questo incantevole B&B con il mio compagno, mia sorella e mio cognato. Lida e Giuseppe ci hanno accolto con estrema gentilezza nella loro bellissima casa: ambienti curati ed arredati con estremo gusto, camere luminose, pulizia impeccabile. Ogni dettaglio è scelto con amore, per valorizzare la tradizione familiare e dare agli ospiti il massimo comfort. Durante le colazioni ci hanno deliziato con i sapori di Sicilia: dolcetti fatti in casa, marmellate buonissime (imperdibile quella di arance), frutta fresca, yogurt biologico, toast fragranti e tante altre prelibatezze. Da collega gestrice di B&B ho apprezzato ogni dettaglio così come la genuina cordialità ed i bellissimi sorrisi dei padroni di casa. Buona estate e buona vita Lida e Giuseppe… con il desiderio di rivederci ancora!

Amazing hosts, breakfast and location-a real top B&B

Great welcome, Lida and her husband Giuseppe (an ex top chef from Switzerland ) were amazing hosts. What a breakfast !! homemade from Giuseppe daily this is an amazing B&B, really top class and good value for money in a great location.Service was outstanding, we would highly recommend staying here and it was by far the best B&B we stayed in during our 10 day holiday to Sicily. Also Marzamemi is still a real hidden gem and I hope stays that way.

Ojalá poder volver. Han hecho de nuestra estancia una auténtica maravilla. Son encantadores y han cuidado hasta el último detalle. El desayuno está buenísimo y se nota que está preparado con cariño. La habitación estaba impecable, las toallas huelen a un suavizante que hace que te sientas en casa y la cama es comodísima. Un 10.
