Beautiful property and the host was so helpful and friendly! Absolutely recommend! Many thanks!
Perfect base from which to discover Western Sicily. Lovely little house set in swishing palm trees surrounded by quiet market gardens within walking distance of shops, good restaurants and beaches. Without being luxurious, the house and fittings are designed to meet all the basic needs. Well suited for children. Ciro, the owner epitomises Siciliam hospitality and is never far away to answer all your enquiries. A bottle of Sicilan wine awaits you on the table as you arrive. Ideal for visiting Palermo, Trapani, Egadi Islands, Zingaro, Segesta, Erice, Marsala and even Agrigente or Cefalu.
This was our second visit in Villa Solemare. It was really nice place to stay in 2012 and it's getting only better. The owner is making improvements constantly, added fence and gate, now it's very safe to leave kids playing outside, also upgraded some furniture, kitchen equipment, put gas balloon outside for safety, also very nice barbecue which we have tried :)
The location is really perfect, very near to city center and the sea, just few minutes drive by car, also very convenient to explore the whole western part of Sicily and the capital - Palermo, but at the same time it's a little outside and very calm. This property is perfect for family with small kids, there's not so many places with such nice and big fenced garden and the whole play area. The rooms are nice and clean, the bathroom is spacious, and the kitchen has everything you need and is really convenient.
And I must mention the host - Ciro, who is very kind and helpfull. He really takes care of his guests in all aspects, like delivering baby bed for our small son when we needed one, helping to plan a day trip to Palermo with his maps and welcome bottle of house wine on a table among the others.
The living is really easy in Villa Solemare and it makes you wanna return there once more. And I'm sure we will :)
We spent at Villa Solemare one wonderful week. The house is very well equipted, with all necessary things for holidays,even beach umbrella.
It is essential to mention kids playground with sand box and even toys, swings and slide hill. Our daughter spent all free time there.
About Mr. Ciro - I could say only the best words. Thanks to him we had beutiful time. He fluently speaks english, so he told us about all sightseeing around Balestrate.
Beah is absolutely great, clean sand, warm and clear water - ideal for small kids.
Thank you one more time, for our amazing holidays. We'll definitely come back again :)
Justina and Regimantas,
We just came back from Sicily and had a great time. We stayed at Villa Solemare and enjoyed every moment of it.In our opinion the villa has everything you need to have a relaxing time .It is well equipped and the garden was just perfect for our small kids. The beautiful sandy beach of the is within 10 minutes walk and was just perfect for our young kids as the water depth doesn't start until a good few meters from the shore. In our opinion the most important thing one needs when going abroad is a good host , and surely Ciro is a great one. He is a true sicilian gentleman , helpful and ready to accommodate your needs. We found Si ilians to be friendly people and helpful towards tourist. Balestrate is a small town where you can enjoy night markets and good restaurant at very inviting prices. ( try Sapori di Mare if you like fish dishes) . It's location makes it very easy to reach places like Palermo and Trapani. We would recommend you hire a car prior to your arrival , and explore the beautiful Sicily . All in all we had a great time and will definitely return to Sicily in the nears future. Grazie Ciro for the lovely time .
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.
