Lovely holiday in Apartment Roberta, Balestrate

  • 5 of 5

We are a couple who have just returned from a relaxing, sunny autumn break in Apartment Roberta in Balestrate.This was our first visit to Sicily.

The apartment is spacious & an ample size for the two of us. The bedroom is large with a very comfortable bed and doors opening onto the terrace. The open plan living, dining and kitchen areas are light and airy also with doors opening onto the lovely terrace which is very large and offers extended views of the beach and sea. The apartment is fully equipped with everything we needed to enjoy our holiday. It is very clean, well maintained & comfortable.

The owners and manager are charming and couldn't have been more helpful. They were always available if we needed them and wanted to make sure we had a good stay.

Balestrate in October is quiet as the season is over but this suited us perfectly. We had a pleasant stroll into town along the long sandy beach. We went to mass in the beautiful church and found a number of shops to stock up on supplies.

We hired a car at the airport and were able to discover the beautiful landscapes and mountainous coastline of northwestern Sicily, visiting all the beaches of Castellammare del Golfo including the lovely San Vito lo Capo where we swam in the sea and enjoyed the warm sun. We visited Segesta, the Garibaldi monument, Scopello, Trapani and Palermo.

Balestrate is a very good base for visiting these places and the apartment has the addition of off road parking giving peace of mind with a hire car. It is only a 25 minute drive on the motorway from the airport in Palermo to Balestrate and no more than ten minutes from the motorway exit to the apartment.

We thoroughly enjoyed staying in Apartment Roberta and would have no hesitation in recommending it for a lovely holiday in a beautiful part of Sicily.

Great stay in apartment in Balestrate

  • 5 of 5

We, a family with one 4-year old child, had a great stay in the apartment in Balestrate. The location was perfect only 250 metres from the beach with facilities like a bar, a couple of restaurants, shower and toilets. Also you had the possibility to rent a parasol and sun-beds. We had a 10 minutes walk into the centre, the road not really made for walking people, but for us it worked just fine anyway. From Balestrate you can also take the train to for example Palermo or Trappani. You have also the possibility to rent a car of course to be able to see more of the island in an easy way.

The apartment was very nice with a bit terrass overlooking the sea. I would say a party of 4 is maximum regarding bed space.

In the centre you also have the tourist information where you among other things can book boat trips and other excursions.

It was also great with the service of getting picked up at the airport and driven to the apartment, and the other way around.

We are greatly happy with our stay!

Sehr schöne Wohnung, herrlicher Meerblick.

  • 5 of 5

Uns hat die Wohnung von Anfang an sehr gut gefallen und haben uns sofort sehr wohl gefühlt. Sie ist liebevoll eingerichtet, sehr sauber und gepflegt. Besonders von der Terrasse mit dem fantastischen Meerblick, auf der es immer einen Platz mit Sonne gibt, waren wir sehr angetan. Der Sandstrand ist leicht zu Fuß in ein paar Minuten zu erreichen. In der Stadt Balestrate ist abends Markt, was zu einem abendlichen Spaziergang einlädt.

Die Buchung und die Kommunikationen per E-Mails waren auf Deutsch, sehr höflich und wurden schnell beantwortet. Für die Anreise wurde ein Treffpunkt am Stadtrand ausgemacht, wo wir abgeholt und zur Wohnung gebracht wurden.

Die Vermieter wohnen im Erdgeschoß und haben sich bei jeder Begegnung mit uns, erkundigt ob alles in Ordnung ist und ob alles passt.

Wir haben den Urlaub auf Sizilien und Aufenthalt in der Villa Roberta sehr genossen und dürfen uns auf diesem Weg sehr herzlich bei der netten Familie Tocco bedanken.

Wir werden mit Sicherheit hier wieder einen Urlaub verbringen.

ATTENTO/A SCEGLI BENE, SONO LE TUE VACANZE RELAX 1

  • 1 of 5

Sono stato in vacanza dal 4 luglio al 18 luglio 2015 in questo appartamento. Posso dire che l’accoglienza ricevuta da parte del rappresentante della “HomeAway” e del proprietario dell’appartamento è stata molto buona, mentre, la moglie di quest’ultimo, non ci è sembrata molto disponibile; anzi, carattere discutibile.

L’appartamento è particolare, simpatico, ma la cucina è vecchia e tutti gli utensili lo sono altrettanto. Per darvi un’idea, mia moglie ha dovuto lavare la caffettiera per il caffè (e non solo) diverse volte e bollire l’acqua almeno quattro volte per vederla per lo meno trasparente. Il bagno va, ma il box doccia andrebbe sicuramente sistemato in quanto è penoso come lo sciacquone che ho dovuto riparare subito il primo giorno (per fortuna ho buone mani e le so usare).

La terrazza è per contro molto bella con un’ampia vista sul mare. In quanto alle caratteristiche generali vi voglio avvertire che, l’aria condizionata è nettamente insufficiente a coprire i metri cubi dell’appartamento. Raffredda la sala da pranzo ma, la temperatura della camera da letto principale, dopo l’uso di ore, varia pochissimo e quindi si dorme molto male. Il ferro da stiro c’era; anche in questo caso mia moglie ha dovuto necessariamente pulire la piastra diverse volte con il vapore e, olio di gomito, in quanto era nera e super incrostata. Dell’asse da stiro invece non c’era traccia. Ha dovuto stirare sul tavolo della cucina spostandolo lo stesso vicino alla presa.

La lavatrice era addirittura oscena. Lo sportello dove si mette il detersivo era inguardabile e ingiudicabile (faceva schifo) e la centrifuga non funzionava. Per questo motivo, prima di appendere i panni ad asciugare, ho dovuto strizzarli tutti a mano.

Il wireless è praticamente quasi inesistente. Per utilizzarlo devi restare confinato in un angolo della cucina e hai praticamente la potenza minima (provato con cellulare Samsung, iPad e Kindle). Sulla terrazza e altri locali la connessione è inesistente.

Anche il barbecue è praticamente inesistente. C’è sì, ma è così obsoleto, piccolo, che puoi al limite cuocere due bistecche, non troppo grandi però. In pratica credo che dall’ultima volta che qualcuno ha osato utilizzarlo sia passati decenni.

Abbiamo poi capito perché gli animali non sono ammessi. I proprietari hanno tre cani di notevoli dimensioni che abbiano di giorno e la notte. Questo hanno omesso di segnalarlo e quindi per quanto riguarda la tranquillità, lasciate perdere.

Owner's Response: A dire il vero non ci aspettavamo una recensione negativa, abbiamo accolto la famiglia come facciamo sempre in maniera cordiale e abbiamo spiegato che per la qualsiasi cosa saremmo stati sempre disponibili. Durante la vacanza non ci è stato evidenziato nulla di tutto ciò che ci viene contestato, per cui in questo caso non potevamo fare nulla per migliorare i servizi laddove ce ne fosse stato bisogno. Invece è arrivata una recensione molto negativa e direi pure offensiva, visto che si è giudicato la proprietaria (carattere discutibile) senza neanche conoscerla. Ma ci siamo fatti un'idea di questa recensione, i nostri ospiti un giorno prima di partire ci hanno chiamato per farci notare che avevano rotto qualche sedia a sdraio e nel frigorifero una piastra di vetro cosi come alcuni cestelli per le bottiglie erano mancanti, abbiamo quantificato il danno e siamo stati prontamente risarciti, evidentemente questa cosa non è andata giù, devo precisare che non abbiamo chiesto una cauzione ai nostri ospiti per via del buon rapporto che si era creato. Tuttavia vogliamo far notare ai nostri prossimi ospiti che tutte la recensioni precedenti sono positive, e provvederemo a migliorare sempre la qualità dei servizi.

Schöne Wohnung, herrliche Sonnenterrasse

  • 5 of 5

Fangen wir mit der Anbahnung an: Bereits die Anfrage und E-Mails vor dem Mietbeginn wurden schnell, freundlich und auf deutsch beantwortet. Um die Wohnung besser zu finden, wurde ein gemeinsamer Treffpunkt am Ortseingang ausgemacht und gemeinsam die Wohnung besucht.

Die Übergabe/Einweisung verlief dann auf deutsch in sehr angenehmer Atmosphäre.

Die Wohnung selber ist etwas über italienischen Standard, wie wir ihn in den letzten Jahren oft erlebt haben. Nicht mehr alles ist taufrisch, wird jedoch in gutem Zustand gehalten. Man merkt, dass dem Eigentümer an seinem Eigentum etwas liegt!

Hervorstechendes Merkmal ist die Terrasse, die sich um einen großen Teil der Wohnung herumschlängelt. Den gesamten Tag über findet sich ein Platz mit Sonne! Sehr angenehm dann für die Mittagszeit die relativ neuen Sonnensegel.

Die Lage der Wohnung ist ideal, um den Nordwesten Siziliens zu entdecken. Die Autobahn ist nicht weit entfernt und darüber sind sowohl Palermo als auch die Ziele weiter westlich sehr gut zu erreichen!

Zur besseren Kommunikation stand während der gesamten Zeit deutschsprachige Unterstützung per Telefon zur Verfügung!

Am Ende der Urlaubszeit erfolgte die Abschlussübergabe. Auch hier sehr persönlich und sehr angenehm. Wir sind noch nicht oft am Ende der Mietphase vom Vermieter nach Verbsserungswünschen gefragt worden. Hier war dem so und vielleicht profitieren die Folgemieter ja von unseren Ideen!

Alles in allem eine sehr schöne, sehr angenehme Woche!

Toller Meeresblick !

  • 4 of 5

Sehr netter Vermieter. Appartement hat traumhafte Aussicht auf das Meer. Der Strand ist fußläufig erreichbar und nur am Wochenende gut besucht. Die umliegenden Restaurants bieten ein sehr gutes Preis-/Leistungsverhältnis.

Balestrate
Car: recommended

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.
