We had a great time staying at Farchikala. The rooms are spacious, spotlessly clean, in a good location and provide all the information necessary (in English and Italian) regarding travelling to attractions and restaurants around the island. What really makes Farchikala stand out however are the wonderful hosts who were extremely attentive and helpful at every opportunity. It is a family run business and we found everyone who worked there to be genuinely very caring. The main guy who deals with the guests (Mr Carmelo I think) was a really charming character and always tried to speak with us enthusiastically despite our complete lack of Italian. While we were there our ferry to port Empedocle was cancelled and we were left on Lampedusa for an additional 2 nights. Our hosts were fantastic regarding this as there was some uncertainty as to whether they had a spare room for us as some of their expected guests would be requiring the ferry in order to reach Lampedusa. We were kept right up to date with things and at no point was I worried as I knew if there was no room for us our hosts would help us find alternative accomodation. Would highly recommend Farchikala to anyone thinking of Lampedusa.

Response from Farchi, Gestore at Farchikala Lampedusa
Responded 8 Jul 2013
Gentilissimo Mr McCann, La ringraziamo per aver deciso di condividere la sua esperienza positiva a Farchikalà con la più grande community web di viaggiatori! Per noi è importante conoscere il giudizio dei nostri Ospiti e siamo molto felici che abbia apprezzato il Suo soggiorno presso i nostri appartamenti. Quando un turista straniero viene a trovarci facciamo di tutto affinché questo possa avere un bel ricordo di Lampedusa. Al momento la nostra isola è al di fuori dai mercati internazionali probabilmente perché non ci sono collegamenti aerei con l'estero. Così chi, nonostante le oggettive difficoltà per raggiungere Lampedusa, sceglie comunque di visitare questa terra merita un trattamento speciale. E, considerato quello che ha scritto, siamo fieri di aver centrato l'obiettivo. In Italia si dice che "non tutti i mali vengono per nuocere". Questo significa che il ritardo del traghetto per Porto Empedocle vi ha consentito di prolungare di qualche giorno la vacanza a Lampedusa e noi siamo felici di essere stati di aiuto. Grazie ancora per il vostro gentile commento e un saluto affettuoso da tutti noi di Farchikalà e specialmente da Mr Carmelo.

We really enjoyed our holiday at Farchikala. It is a family run business with a caring attitude. They were incredibly helpful. The island ha stunning sand and sea areas perfect for family's or couples. This island is a hidden gem in the Mediterranean with a mix of Italian and North African flavours.
