The Sicily region

Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean and it's a popular travel destination with a volcano, beaches, mountains, and centuries of history and tradition.

The island is a year round destination. The long summer season will be ideal for beach lovers while Spring and Autumn season are the perfect time for mountain excursions, walks or cycling trips. Those who love skiing will enjoy from December to February the slopes of Vulcan Etna and Piano Battaglia in the Madonie Park.

Castellammare del Golfo

Castellammare del Golfo (pop. 15,000) is wonderfully positioned in a bay in the north-west of Sicily, just 15 minutes drive from the Greek temple of Segesta, from the famous Scopello cliffs, and from the specialist marine nature reserve of "Lo Zingaro". Years ago Castellammare del Golfo was an important centre for tuna fishing but today it is known for its spectacular location. The town is perfectly suited for those wanting to stay somewhere with atmosphere close to beaches, like those at Scopello, Lo Zingaro and San Vito Lo Capo. It is also the ideal starting point for several of the most interesting cultural and gastronomic tours through the provinces of Trapani, Palermo and Agrigento in Western Sicily, given the easy access by car and other means of local transport

"Wonderful place, wonderful views"

Very nice house up on a hill, above the city. The owners are very helpful, kind, we left very early in the morning (4.30) but they were already up waving for us :) Stunning views whilst drinking your morning coffee or evening wine. We will definitely reccomend it to our friends and family. Thank you.

"Le paysage vaut le détour, le reste moins !"

"Great place to stay with amazing view"

this holiday stay was just perfect.. we did get what we expected, lovely sicilian house with a real sicilian lady Ms. Franca :) from the terasse we had amazing views Mver the village and see, we enjoyed our coffee every morning there.. ooooh wish we could stay longer.

everything was well organised, no issues with paying or deposit, we were pickup at the meeting point on time. the road to villa france is a bit steep (you dont want to go without car :) ) but we did get used to it very quickly. we did not need anything during our stay, but it was nice to know that Ms. Francesca or her husband are there if needed.

there are 3 appartments / so if you are a bigger group just ask if the other two are free too

Hope we can return someday, to see if the garden is really so full with flowers :)

"un lugar tranquilo y acogedor"

El lugar donde está situada la casa tiene unas vistas fantásticas. El camino para llegar es un poco malo, pero solo son cuatro minutos y te acostumbras rápido.
Franca y Lorenzo son muy amables y te ayudan en todo lo que necesites, contribuyen a que sea un lugar muy acogedor.
La casa es muy confortable, tiene todo lo necesario para que te sientas como en casa.
Castellamare es un pueblo muy grande y turístico, con bastantes comercios (supermercados, bares, restaurantes...). La parte antigua y el puerto son muy bonitos para pasear. Y está muy bien situado para ir a visitar la reserva dello zingaro, trapani, segesta...
Muy recomendable.
