“A lovely place to stay” This property has wonderful views of the sea. It is very clean and well equipped, and has a garden that is safe for young children. It's just a few minutes drive from a beautiful cove and easy walking distance from a good pizza restaurant, and there are more restaurants further down the road in Scopello.
Do hire yourself a small car though, as the winding driveway was very hard to navigate in an estate car!
We were met by the owner, Giuseppina - a really lovely lady who speaks very good English and made us feel very welcome.
“Excellent position, spacious apartment” The two flats together work very well, four good bedrooms, balcony on the downstairs kitchen, terrace on the upstairs kitchen, both looking out at the mountain. Comfortable beds. And the position on the steps just above the harbour is perfect, just a few steps to eat and drink. Castellamare is full of character and a very good base, easy to get to from Palermo airport, and with good access for the west of Sicily. Highly recommended are the spring flowers in March especially in the Zingaro nature reserve.
“The best holiday” A few days past since we have returned from the sunny Sicily! It was gorgeous and relaxing trip in a very conveniently located place in a very smart house! The villa impressed us with its size, interesting design and how fully deviced it was! But the most important that it was located closely to the luxoryous sunny beach and pure warm sea. Only fifty steps and you are on a free chaise-longue under an umbrella. In the evening you can spend time in local cafes, which you can find either on The Playa or in Castellamare. It very convenient to use touristic train at night to visit Castellamare and get back. Or you can cook the food by yourself on barbecue and have a meal on the big table in the garden. In a 5 minutes of walking there is a supermarket where you can buy all necessary food products. We visited Palermo twice by the bus, which stops not far away from the villa. The trip takes 1-1.5 hours. The Internet access was important for us and it was both in the house and the beach. Particularly, we want to thank Anna Maria and Rosario for their hospitality. They are very nice and considerate people who care about their guests and support them with all necessary information. And we were glad to get acquainted with such a good people!
