Casa Ruffino is situated in the town of Balestrate, a much loved sea resort
not far from Sicily's capital city of Palermo. A small town built just off
the long sandy beaches lapped by the crystal clear waters of the gulf of
Castellammare del Golfo. Balestrate is located on the North Western coast of
Sicily, half way between Palermo (40km) and Trapani (50km).
Within easy reach of Casa Ruffino lie Scopello, the Zingaro Nature Reserve,
Segesta, and Erice. Just a little further away, to the West, there are the
towns of Marsala and Mazara del Vallo. Travelling Southbound, along the
Sicilian coast, visitors soon come to Sciacca and Agrigento.
