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 (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. T
he 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

"Excellent base for touring Western Sicily"
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Apartment Caterina. The booking process was quick and easy; Marylou was very helpful, answering our questions and ensuring that everything was dealt with efficiently. We were met on arrival in Castellammare and guided to the apartment, which was very helpful on a dark and rainy evening. We appreciated the small gift of local pastries waiting for us on arrival!
The apartment is very spacious and is in immaculate condition. There is plenty of equipment for self-catering and the local supermarkets are very well stocked. It's an easy walk from the apartment to the centre of town and the beach - but be warned, the walk up from the harbour area (if you go up the steps) is quite a challenge!
During our stay the weather was changeable, to say the least, so having a pleasant base to which to return was very welcome. Castellammare is ideally placed for exploring the local area by car - we went to Segesta, Selinunte, Trapani, Marsala, Mazara del Vallo, San Vito lo Capo and Monreale. It would also have been easy to get to Erice and the Riserva Naturale dello Zingaro but the weather prevented us. Next time!
This was our first visit to Sicily - we loved it, and will return to explore more of the island. We would definitely stay in this apartment again.

TThe stay in this apartment was an amazing experience. The landlord is very kind. She was easy to reach and she helped us perfectly with every question we had (from finding a reliable taxi from the airport to questions about the town or the location of the apartment).
The apartment itself was in mint condition, eveything was new and in perfect condition. When we arrived there were fresh ingredients for pasta in the kitchen along with a welcome gift (pasteries from a local baker).
The location is excellent. Very close to the town center and the different beaches. And then there's the view. Not a morning went by that we looked up at the mountain in amazement to then turn our heads and dream away at the view of the ocean.
Our whole vacation was like a fairytale and I would absolutely recommend it. We'll definately go back one and we absolutely can't wait to do so.

"Stunning Views and Excellent Atmosphere!"
I loved my stay in Apartment Caterina! It truly was an excellent spot to experience all the best parts of the Sicilian seaside. The apartment is spacious, very well maintained and offers breathtaking views of the ocean. The view of the sea is one I wish I could wake up to everyday! My favorite part of this place was the terrace, a perfect spot to relax after a day at the beach with a glass of wine. The space feels very open, with light pouring in from the many windows and glass doors that lead out to the balconies. Along with the gorgeous vistas, there is a beautiful sweet smelling Jasmine tree just outside. This is a good sized apartment, ideal for a group of friends and definitely family friendly. Conveniently located, the apartment is about a 15 minute walk (with amazing scenery) to town, the beach, or the marina. We headed out for dinner and drinks by foot in the evening, mostly around the marina area. There are so many great restaurants to check out- the food in this town is amazing!! Our time at the beach was also super. We rented sun beds and enjoyed the warm, clear and calm water while taking breaks to eat along the shoreline. This was truly an unforgettable trip, and I highly recommend this apartment- the place is worth every penny!
