    6602744 is minutes away from Castellammare del golfo, and the difference in atmosphere can't be exaggerated. Castellammare del golfo is very touristic with lively activity late into the night. 6602744 is the definition of peace, quiet, and restful calm. Our hosts were wonderful. Everything you need right at hand. The bed is really comfortable. The AC unit does what you need it to do. The patio is perfect for a quiet expresso, drink, or a meal. During our two-week visit, we cooked in half a dozen times; the kitchen work space is great. Glad we discovered this lovely spot.

    We can't say enough wonderful things about Francesca and Giuseppe's marvelous property. It exceeded all of our expectations, and more. First, the location is ideal. It is easy to get to Trapani and Erice, both of which have much to offer, and we made day trips to several different fantastic beaches and to Segesta to view the ruins. The property is impeccably maintained. It is sparkling clean and our apartment, the Casa delle Majoliche, was incredibly beautiful. The furnishings and artwork were chosen with care and all are gorgeous. It is spacious, with high ceilings and has a wonderful flow, with 2 bathrooms and 2 bedrooms on separate ends of the apartment, a lovely outdoor seating area, 2 different interior living/lounge spaces, a dining room and beautiful tilework everywhere. It made it hard to leave each day, as we felt we were living in a true Sicilian fantasy! There is no air conditioning but we were very comfortable at night sleeping under mosquito nets, and it somehow made it very romantic! The property has a unique pool and extensive gardens -- perfect for those days when we wished to simply relax. There is ample seating around the pool and a shady hammock suitable for napping. Finally, we could not have asked for better hosts. Communicating with them in advance was straightforward, and we absolutely loved them when we met in person. Francesca and Giuseppe are warm, friendly, and very helpful. The first evening they presented us with a spectacular basket of bread sticks, tomatoes, eggs, fruit, olive oil, and other treats. There was beer in the refrigerator and a stocked bar in the apartment. We could not have had a better welcome or start to our trip; they even gave our daughter a lovely birthday gift since it was her birthday the day after we left their home. All in all it was an outstanding value and a truly memorable stay. We are extremely well traveled all across Europe, North America, South America, Asia and Australia and this place is a standout; as such, we have to very much disagree with one prior reviewer's comments that the accommodation was rustic and basic. In conclusion, if you are thinking of traveling to Sicily, we highly recommend that you book this charming and yes, enchanting place. You will not regret it.
