The Piccolo Mondo in San Vito Lo Capo is a Hotel that has a beautiful story. In 2018 we celebrated 30 years of “honored service”.
It was in 1988 in fact when Vito and Antonella, my parents, began this great work, creating the Hotel.
At that time, San Vito Lo Capo was not the destination today so appreciated.
It was mostly a fishermen village frequented by local people and by the first German and Swiss travelers.
It is during this period that Vito & Antonella (very young and without any experience) create, working side by side, a "small world" (=Piccolo Mondo) with people from everywhere.
As you can well understand, ours is a family-run hotel with few rooms.
We think this is a great added value because it allows us to follow, step by step and from the first request those looking for a Hotel in San Vito Lo Capo.
Having few rooms in fact we can afford to give a personalized and attentive service, to meet the needs of our guests.
For example, recommending the quieter cove, which beach to visit in certain weather and wind conditions or the best restaurant for a romantic experience.
Being 50 meters from the beach is certainly an excellent strength.
It is always convenient to leave the hotel and go to the beach in a moment, without having to get on crowded shuttles or having to take the car!
As for the room…
Here on our site you looked at the rooms and you may have noticed that some of them have the word “Dependance”.
No, it’s not a fancy name.
The Dependance is a building located just opposite the main building – where those arriving can stop for Check-In.
If you are thinking that the Dependance is worth less than the other building, you are wrong.
We have always renovated our Hotel, trying to make all the rooms more and more modern – and above all – functional.
The only difference with the main building is the color of the furnishings: we thought it was a nice thing to differentiate the “Hotel” rooms and those of the Dependance.
As you have seen, the rooms in the Hotel are in Blue, those in Dependance are Purple.
On the first floor there are both standard rooms and with balcony.
On the second floor there is the pride of the Hotel.
Yes, I’m talking about the Junior Suite!
With frontal and side sea views, its exclusive terrace is perfect to stop for a moment, turn off your thoughts and admire the sea with the person you love.
From here in the morning, still sleepy, you can feel the breeze of the Mediterranean caressing your skin.
The Junior Suite is a very large room, with the best view of the entire hotel!
It does not matter if you are a couple or with your family, because the sofa in the living area becomes a comfortable double bed, perfect for your children!
As I said, the Dependance is not an option to discard, it contains much of the history of the Piccolo Mondo and of my family within its walls.
Let’s jump back, let’s go back to the past, think about when the songs of Madonna, Prince, Michael Jackson were played by jukeboxes in your city. Perfect.
The Dependance in those years already existed, even before the Hotel Piccolo Mondo existed: it was indeed the home of my grandparents, here where my father grew up.
The Terrace of the Junior Suite was theirs, from here Vito looked out, looking for Antonella.
Here we are at the end of this story, arriving so far with the reading I am sure you will have appreciated.
See you in San Vito Lo Capo!
Ciao, it's Marco.
