"very lively and family orientated."
We spent 2 very lovely weeks enjoying the beautiful views from the rooftop. The apartment itself is very practical, modern and homey. The location is outstanding as the locals are charming and i would definitely like to return.

"In serous need of some TLC"

This holiday apartment is ideal for a short get away. It has everything you need and the owners are extremely friendly and helpful- we got picked up at the airport and were emailed the following day asking if everything was alright or if we needed to know anything. The town was lovely, not another English person in sight so we got the Sicilian experience and everyone was always so friendly to us. Would definitely go back to Balestrate again!
