APARTMENT CRISTINA 2ND FLOOR

Castellammare del Golfo Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Castellammare del Golfo lies on the north-west coast of Sicily. Our completely refurbished holiday apartments are located in a picturesque lane in the old fishing area, just above the port. A flight of steps leads down to the sea so there is no transit traffic. It is approx. 5 minutes on foot to the fishing port. Castellammare del Golfo originated as the port of the ancient town of Segesta. After the Romans had destroyed the Elimi town, they took over the port and expanded it. The old part of Castellammare has thus been able to retain its charm and the original character of a fishing village until today. Palermo Airport is about 30km away and can be easily accessed via the motorway Palermo-Trapani within about 20 minutes. To the east of Castellammare there is a long sandy beach in the direction of Balestrate. On the other side there is however a rocky coast with picturesque bays towards Scopello/ San Vito.

Beaches in the vicinity: The port itself has a small sandy beach. A short distance to the east of the town, you can find long sandy beaches just 15 minutes away on foot or 5 minutes by car. In the summer months there are several private bathing areas providing deckchairs and sunshades in addition to public beaches. The spring or the autumn is the best time for long strolls along the beach. The coast on the other side of the port is steep and rocky at the beginning. Towards Scopello there are, however, many small bays with crystal-clear water. Guidaloca beach (about 10 minutes by car) is very popular.

The capital of Palermo and the mosaics of Monreale: The fascinating city of Palermo with its some 700,000 inhabitants, is the largest city in Italy. You can still notice and feel its oriental history. Thanks to Leoluca Orlando, the then mayor, Palermo enjoyed its “spring” and now belongs to the citizens again. A stroll through the old city quarters round the so-called Quattro Canti will guarantee a thrilling experience. Numerous baroque palaces have already been refurbished, and the Teatro Massimo, one of the largest opera houses, is again open for great musical events.

Works of art from the Arab-Norman period are among the special attractions. They include the Cappella Palatina in the Norman Palace, San Giovanni degli Eremiti, the small church of La Martorana, San Cataldo and the hunting castle of La Zisa. You can visit the highlight of this epoch in Monreale, which is just above Palermo. This cathedral, full of Byzantine mosaics, resembles a medieval Comique and the charming cloisters are like paradise on earth.

Thermal baths near Castellammare: Just 10-15 minutes away you can find two thermal baths, both of which are fed by the same sulphurated water (water temperature approx. 37°C). Terme Gorga: This unassuming thermal bath is open all year round (daily until about 11pm). It has a swimming pool and another small pool with warmer water. Take the motorway in the direction of Trapani. When joining the motorway at Castellammare simply take the next exit. Go right at the T-junction, underneath the major road and then it is signposted.

Terme Segestane: If you take the old major road to Segesta, you will automatically come to these thermal baths after several kilometres (to the left just below the road).

Castellammare del Golfo originated as the port of the ancient town of Segesta. Just a few kilometres away you can still admire some well-preserved Greek temples and a theatre. After the Romans had destroyed the Elimi town, they took over the port and expanded it. Later, under Arab rule, Castellammare continued to flourish and became impregnable due to the building of a fortress, which gave the town its present name (Castello-al-mare, i.e. castle or fortress at the sea). Today the town boasts a romantic old port and a small modern one on the other side of the promontory on which the fortress is built. The coast with its marvellous white beaches and bizarre rock formations is extremely beautiful.
