The loving care and meticulous attention to detail exercised by the proprietors is evident in each and every corner of the bed & breakfast, whether in the common areas, in the bedrooms, or breakfast room.

The Sicily region

La Sicilia è la più grande isola del Mediterraneo ed è famosa per le sue spiagge bellissime, ottima cucina, e affascinante storia. Nel corso dei secoli Fenici, Greci, Romani, Arabi, Normanni, e invasori spagnoli Hanno LASCIATO il Loro segno sulla cultura siciliana e Architettura.

La Sicilia è famosa in tutto il mondo per il Suo cibo fantastico e vini pregiati, Mentre gli inverni miti ed estati calde lo rendono la meta ideale per tutto l'anno


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.
