Amazing experience discovering the long Sicilian Summer

  • 5 of 5
I never expected a such incredible weather in Sicily at the end of September, We had a lovely stay in Balestrate, a small town close to the Zingaro Natural reserve and Scopello where we tried the famous "pane cunzato" sunbathing in the amazing sandy beach with perfect clear water. Thanks to Piero, We received a lot of tips and suggestions about what to do and where to go around our lovely accomodation perfect located walking distance from the beach.
Very close to the Villla We've been delighted eating in several Restaurants fresh fish and tipical sicilian food.
To enjoy at the best our stay we needed to rent a car because with public transport is not easy to travel in Sicily.
Thanks a lot to Piero for everything...we hope to come back to Sicily soon

Nice but a little misleading

  • 3 of 5
The room was adequate but definitely needed several upgrades. The towels were very limited and small even for European standards. The stove is propane and needs a lighter to work. The lighter they had was empty and the one they replaced it with was another empty bic lighter. It is very deceiving to say 50 meters from the beach. This is technically true but you have to walk down the road a piece to get to the access.

I think that VRBO owners need to learn how to give directions, take the exit and go into town doesn't cut it for me. They were helpful in meeting us there and we were lucky we had the GPS and that he was outside when we pulled up and realized the guy on the phone was who we needed.

They do not have a queen bed but two twins put together which is not real comfortable in the middle.

Balestrade is a great place as a base to see things but there is very little there. On 11/1 it is a holiday and the buses do not run. The host did not know how to use the train or the bus system which is something travelers would like from their hosts.

The name Golfo is also misleading as we thought we were a town further down.

Piero, tried very hard to help, but he is not experienced enough to know how to be a VRBO host.

The room was a nice place to base from but would not say it was anything special.

lovely stay made even better by excellent host

  • 5 of 5
We had a lovely stay here for 3 nights! Piero and his staff were wonderful, and Balestrate was charming. We were greeted upon arrival with a large bowl of fresh fruit, bottles of aperitif, white wine, and olive oil, and pasta for preparing in the apartment's kitchen. One morning, Piero knocked on the door with fresh, hot pastries for us. Balestrate was very walkable, and it was also close enough to drive to other nearby attractions. We loved walking to the coffee shop down Via Roma street, with its ricotta cheese pastries and excellent coffee. The beach is close by, with crystal clear blue water, and chairs and an umbrella were provided for us. In case you're not familiar with Mediterranean beaches, bring "water shoes" (not flip-flops) for walking along the rocky beach until you reach the sandier area. Everything you need (grocery stores, shopping, good restaurants, etc.) is available in Balestrate. Sicily is beautiful and the people are friendly! Piero and his staff speak excellent English. One note -- we did not have hot water after the first morning, but we never remembered to ask Piero about it. I'm sure it could have been resolved, but be sure to ask if it's important to you. We highly recommend this apartment to anyone traveling in northern Sicily. Close and convenient to the Palermo airport, too.

Classic Sicilian Hospitality - Casa del Golfo

  • 5 of 5
My two friends and I were blessed to find this lovely villa in Balestrate via vrbo.com on a recent jaunt to Sicily. We hoped to find a comfortable spot we could use as a home-base to explore some of the highlights of Western Sicily. It turned out the villa provided that and much more.

The quaint village of Balestrate, the villa, and our host Piero completely exceeded our expectations of Sicilian hospitality. Our accommodations at Casa del Golfo, which is mere steps from the breath-taking Golfo de Castellammare (a must-see at sunset), were extremely spacious. It's high ceilings; large windows; and romantic balcony overlooking town all reminded us of its recent past as a family villa. The kitchen is also remarkably well-equipped for cooking a full meal or a snack at home.

As it turned out, Balestrate was a perfect home-base for our adventures through Western Sicily, which included day-trips to Erice, Segesta, Trapni, San Vito lo Capo, Monreale, and Palermo. None of these sites were very far away, and we actually found the drives quite scenic; if you do hope to explore, I recommend a rental car.

As for the crazy urban din of Palermo, it was fun to see but we were VERY glad to return to our sleepy and friendly "home" in Balestrate after a long day of exploring Palermo. The village is big enough that it has everything you need, but not too big; it is easily explored on foot. There's a nice grocery, and also a number of good local restaurants, mainly specializing in seafood as well as several charming cafes for your morning espresso and cornetto (I'll take mine stuffed with sweet ricotta, please).

Although we didn't know Balestrate before our trip, I would recommend it as a home base for any travelers looking to explore Western Sicily. It's convenient location south of the Palermo airport, off the main highway and along the coast makes it both tranquil and central to many sites. And it's JUST far enough away from Palermo to be truly relaxing and sleepy.

Piero bent over backwards to be a good host, offering great suggestions of local restaurants and sites to see. He even greeted us with a home-cooked Sicilian meal and fresh fruit, and helped one in our group sort out a problem with a flight. He truly is a terrific host.

I would not hesitate to recommend Casa de Golfo to any guests looking for a gracious spot to stay while taking in the beauty of Sicily. Piero and the villa helped make our trip truly special. "La sicilia è bella!"
