A real taste of Sicilian life

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time in the centre of Balestrate. Comfortable , well equipped and close to everything you need, including the free beaches of beautiful deep blue sea. Being right in the centre enabled us to get a real taste of Sicily and emerges you in its simple and relaxed life. lFrom the church bells , to the clicking of the expresso mugs , from the Sicilian chit chats coming from the centre of the piazza to the celebrations and evening musical activities ,for us it was just perfect.. A bus ,stops right outside the flat and will take you in just under an hour to Palermo.The owner is a real gentlemen , we had our three very young kids with us and they could not do enough to accommodate us. Our little one damaged a vase and they were very understanding . Little things that make a difference when you are abroad . Grazie Mille .And if you love fish try Sapori di mare it was delicious and very reasonably priced. We will definitely return. Grazie Ciro grazie Enzo .

Another great stay!!

  • 5 of 5

For the second time now we enjoyed very much our stay in the flat above the piazza. There was the usual Balestrate life to see going on from our great vantage point, while we could enjoy our local, Alcamo, white wine. As always, Ciro, was super helpful and attentive to any situations that arose and promptly attended to any extra needs. We appreciated the well equipped kitchen and other great facilities the flat offers to make our stay easy and comfortable. It is extremely clean, well maintained and attended to. Now with the wifi connection, it lacks nothing!- this was greatly appreciated by our 2 teenage daughters! We particularly enjoy the flat´s central location which makes shopping for everyday articles extremely easy. It is also good to be able to walk to one of the local beaches. This combined with the numerous trip possibilities in close proximity, make Balestrate an ideal holiday base. We would recommend the flat to anyone who enjoys having some real Sicilian life around them as well as a very comfortable, well equipped place to stay.

Fantastic Holiday

  • 4 of 5

The accommodation is perfect for a family with teenage children. It overlooks the town square where you can view all the activities from the balcony or go down the stairs and round the corner to join in. The bedrooms are roomy with extra bedding in the living area. The apartment is clean and spacious and the balcony with the bbq is an added bonus. We were very well looked after and the manager was only a phone call away at any time. Balestrate is a great place to stay with the beach not too far from your doorstep and plenty of nightlife after dark. There were beach parties for the younger crowd or you could just sit on the balcony and enjoy life going on around you while you watch. All shopping accounted for in the town including a pharmacy just on the corner. Good restaurants to choose from. Would recommend for a really relaxing, hassle free holiday with friendly local people to chat to. Would go back again.

A great stay in Balestrate!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great holiday in this flat centrally located in Balestrate. The central location made it possible for us to reach everything we needed, including the lovely, sandy beach,by foot. The flat is very well equipped in all aspects. The kitchen had absolutely all cooking utensils necessary, plus more besides! We were delighted by the generous supply of towels in the bathroom. Ciro made sure we were very well looked after and was on hand to help with any questions or small problems we had. I would absolutely recommend the flat to anyone who enjoys being able to be in close contact to everyday Sicilian life at its best. Observing the Piazza going-ons from the balcony was fascinating and very entertaining. There were lots of great places to visit in the area too when we rented a car for some days. We had a really good time! Thanks Ciro!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Federica is a lovely apartment with fantastic spacious terrace facing the main city square. Apartment is very clean and well equipped. Located in the middle of Balestrate, it’s close to everything one need for comfortable vacation: shops, restaurants, pharmacy, trains station and bus stops, and of cause beaches with incredible view which are easy reachable by foot. Balestrate itself is a small charming town unexploited by the massive tourism. It is very alive in the evenings with a lot off entertainments taken place at regular basis. Location of the apartment, hospitality of its owner – it’s all making it a perfect vacation place. Many thanks for Ezio and Ciro for their warm reception and helpfulness in all matters.

Heerlijk uitzicht op de piazza

  • 4 of 5

Heerlijke plek om het dagelijkse Siciliaanse leven te aanschouwen. Ruim appartement met groot dakterras met direct uitzicht op de piazza.

Dit dakterras is door ons het grootste gedeelte van de tijd gebruikt, vanwege het uitzicht en ook voor afkoeling.

Wij danken met name Ciro voor zijn gastvrijheid en hulpvaardigheid.

Car: not necessary

Balestrate (approx. 5000 inhabitants) has not yet been overwhelmed by mass tourism, meaning you can still enjoy its typical Sicilian flair. Hospitality and friendliness to children are part of the way of life here. Sun, sea and kilometres of clean sandy beaches, some with child-friendly lidos all go to make up an unforgettable holiday experience. Balestrate is in close proximity to the motorway system (about 2 km away), meaning the most famous sights of Sicily are in easy reach (e.g. Palermo 25 minutes, Aetna about 3 hours). The bus and rail routes to such places as Taormina, Agricento, Segesta etc. are also ideal. Cycle and car hire are available locally. Since Balestrate lies in the proximity of the motorway (approx. 2 km removed), the most beautiful and most famous objects of interest can be achieved by Sicily shortly (e.g. Palermo 25 minutes, Ätna approx. 3 hour). In addition, bus and railway connections after e.g. Taormina, Agricento, Segesta etc. are ideal.
