Guestbook comments from the manager
Nous découvrons avec un réelle magie cette bâtisse qui nous attend éclairé à la lueur des bougies. Tout est merveilleux et notre séjour sera des plus plaisant. Nous avons pris un bonheur immense à échanger avec Adriano qui nous a conseillé les restaurants et visites à ne pas manquer, la superbe journée en bateau, les explications d'yumi, la beauté de cette Sicile... Son calme, ses pontons, son soleil, son espadon, ses pastas, ses figuiers dans le jardin et bien sur le poulailler..... Tout était si réussit, Merci. Et a très bientôt

ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS...

  • 5 of 5
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. I was welcomed by Adriano and Yumi. The villa is full of beautiful details, it's spacious and my room had a very comfortable bed. Yumi prepared a delicious strawberries marmalade and Adriano was able to give me tips of where to go around Marsala.
The best part about Villa Salinara is its location, a 5 min walk to the sea which has a small wooden bridge on the sand with clean blue waters and plenty of sun!
This place is nice to stay and exactly as described! Sitting at the balcony and looking at the sun dawn into the see - face to face to Africa - great!
Many household machines for cooking and washing, even a juicer, and also WiFi - perfect!
We enjoyed to stay there and will come back another time! THANKS!!!

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING

  • 5 of 5
We spend one week in this beautiful apartment in June 2011. It was absolutely fabulous. This old traditional building is lovely reconstructed and decorated up to every detail! It has this lovely atmosphere of an rustic sicilian cottage.

Yumi and Adriano were perfect hosts making us feel as their welcomed guests, they showed us around in the area and gave us tips where to go or where to buy what. We could pick vegetable from their organic garden, and we even had our own herbal garden next to the terrace.

We enjoyed every minute we stay there!

The cottage itself is situated in a quiet and non-tourist area, that allows to really feel in touch with the people, nature and environment.

By using the bicycles that belong to the house, we were able to explore the surroundings and go to the nice places for dinner or for spending the daytime.

We can absolutely recommend this place and would return, if we get the chance to go to Sicily once more!

FROM TOKYO TO MARSALA WITH MY BIG FAMILY

  • 5 of 5
The villa inside had lots of space for the 14 of us and had everything we needed (hairdryer, bed linen, towels, etc.). The bed was especially comfortable and we could catch up on some sleep.
We had some meals out and cooked some in the wonderful kitchen. There were also supplies of coffee, fresh eggs and lots of fresh vegetables from the vegetable garden. The dishwasher in the big kitchen meant we did not have to do much washing up which is great on holiday.

There is a lot of space to relax outside - we had breakfast outside most mornings and lovely Sicilian wine in the evenings next to the fig tree.
On one afternoon when we came back from the Marsala market with a lot of fresh products we had a gorgeous long lunch under the trees in the shade. And what a luxury to have such fresh figs to go with the local cheese :-)

Yumi and Adriano also provided many leaflets, maps and brochures about the area and information about anything happening close by which was very useful. They were very hospitable, welcoming and friendly and even provided us with a gorgeous bowl of fresh fruit on our first morning. They were always on hand and happy to stop and chat or provide advice on good beaches or suitable outings. They never walked past us without a friendly greeting and really made us feel at home.

It is a brilliant base from which to explore the area - we made trips to Erice, Trapani, Custonaci, Selinunte, Segesta, the Marsala beaches as well as the beaches between Torre San Teodoro and Birgi. The weather was spectacular!

We especially loved Marsala being so close - such a gorgeous town with lots of photographic opportunities, wonderful fish market, friendly people, great shops, lots of opportunities to wander, explore and have coffee. And we were bowled over at the reasonable prices - you certainly cannot sit down in Tokyo, have two coffees in such amazing surroundings and pay just two euros.

A week was too short and we wish we could have stayed longer. There were lots of places left to explore so we will have to come back...

Thanks very much to Yumi and Adriano for making our stay such a pleasant one, we loved the villa and after having driven past many other decided this one was the prettiest!

SIMPLY GREAT...

  • 5 of 5
I've been home for a couple of days now but Sicily still comes to me in my dreams. Saturated technicolor visions of beauty and simplicity accompanied by the scent of oranges. I can still feel the tranquility and serenity imbued by this little marvel of understated perfection. One can could say that Andriano's and Yumi's sense of "sprezzatura" creates a holistic environment fit for books and fantasies. Great hosts. Great location. Great food. Great wine. Great lifestyle Simply great. Our heartfelt and sincere best wishes goes out to Adriando, Yumi and Family. Hope to see you in Stockholm come wintertime!

AWESOME. WE FELL IN LOVE WITH VILLA SALINARA!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderfull stay in Villa Salinara, a nice historic villa in typical sicilian farm style. Yumi and Adriano welcomed us warmly and were very helpfull. They gave us some very interesting tips of where to go and what to see. So we discovered a lot in this area of Sicily, food and wine, art, culture, history, really nice beaches and good times. We were here in March, and I can assure you, everything was green and I have never seen such an abundance of wild flowers everywhere, what a lovely sight! I can not forget the wonderful aroma of jasmine in the garden and all the herbs, mint, basil, rosemary, wild fennel, origanum and thyme. The house was very clean and we had enough space inside and outside. The kitchen has been beautifully restored resembling the old times, all the walls have been covered with a big patchwork of typical antique ceramic tiles. The time spent at the villa was the best... It was a succesfull stay in Marsala. We highly recommend to all those who plan to go to Sicily to visit Villa Salinara. Thank you Yumi and Adriano.

WATERCOLOR JOURNALING IN SICILY

  • 5 of 5
Can't believe tomorrow is my last day.
It has been such a wonderful experience. Not just the art instruction, but making friends with 6 incredible, diverse, delightful women.
Many mornings I have gone for a walk at dawn, which has given me some incredible sunrises. The road by our villa winds through vineyards, olive farms and gardens. Leaving, I can go either way to the sea, or I can go out the back alley directly to the sea.
There is such an unfamiliar beauty in the smell of the sea, of mint, and a wonderful scented lily that blooms at night; the rocky soil, the sandstone, stuccoed villas or groves of prickly pear cactus abundant with fruit. But there is such a comforting familiarity (and my siblings will appreciate this most) the weeds in the alley are the same as those in Baker, Virginia creeper grows over tumble-down barns, the sheds have every sort of salvaged building material stacked up in case one might need it. Things are repaired with "chewing gum and bailing wire". It is hard scrabble farm life, but with such hope and dignity. It brings back childhood memories.
We've gotten to know some of Adriano and Yumi's friends and they have all been so welcoming and gracious.
We've been to a medieval farm village which has a few residents living a very simple life, swam at an isolated marble beach, visited Greek ruins, the local salt flats complete with windmills, and an ancient hilltop town, painting everywhere. It has been wonderful!
Love, MK

Located in the extreme western tip of Sicily, along the route that the Phoenicians laid, and in the seas where Ulysses once ventured. This magical landscape has an abundance of windmills, salt pans, several islands and pristine beaches. In an incredible natural setting in the heart of the Natural Preserve. A strategic position, in a surrounding area that invites you to discover the treasures and traditions of the past. You can reach Marsala, Trapani, Erice, Mazara del Vallo, Salemi, Segesta, Custonaci, Selinunte, Scopello and the historic boat to Mothia, only 10 min. by bike. Also the wonderful beach of San Vito lo Capo with the Natural Preserve. From the port you can reach the Egadi Islands, Favignana, Levanzo and the wild Marettimo. A day in Sciacca and Agrigento with its magnificent Valley of Temples. There are many typical eno-gastronomic products, the famous local wineries producing Marsala wine, olive oil, the popular cous cous with fish soup. You can enjoy all sailing sports.
