About Rosanna

I am a young engineer, a lover of nature, I speak English, French and Portuguese, I love to travel and I like to cook. I practice yoga.

Rosanna purchased this villa in 2002

Why Rosanna chose Castellammare del Golfo

It is our family's countryside house, where we used to spend in winter weekends and holidays. In summer, however, I prefer to leave and rent it to those who can appreciate the pleasure of a friendly atmosphere and take relax at the same time near the sea.

What makes this villa unique

It is a house lived with love, a meeting place for friends and family, so we hope to accommodate people who share the same spirit, believing that even places express sensations

The villa was wonderful

  • 4 of 5

We were only a couple but the villa would have well accommodated three couples. The surrounding garden filled with herbs, flowers, olive, fig, apple, lemon and many other fruit trees was very beautiful. The sunsets behind the mountains were extraordinary and the whole scenery from the villa was fantastic. The surroundings are very tranquil and the Balata di Baida village has a good panificio and a small bar serving very good caffè. Rosanna and her father were very pleasant and helpful. Basically only positive things to say. Maybe some good wine glasses could be added to the cupboard and the gas stove might need some tuning (some of the fires were a bit troublesome to get working).

Quiet, spacious, friendly owners

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived at the house, the owner had prepared a delicious meal and gave us a warm welcome. The environment is very quiet and the view is lovely. There is enough space inside as well as outside the house and it was clean and well-equipped, especially the kitchen. The outside shower was also very nice!

We really enjoyed our stay!
