Until quite recently, the only place to stay on Marettimo was in the houses of fishermen, whose families still welcome tourists off the hydrofoil at Scalo Nuovo. You can also contact such agencies as Medi@tour (tel. 0923/923196 or 339/7729404; to arrange a homestay. By far the most sought-after digs on Marettimo are the Hiera Apartments (tel. 0941/361681;; two-person apartment 480€-1,350€ per week, four-person apartment 570€-1,500€ per week). The two units are straight from a boho-chic fashion shoot. Book well in advance.
