The house draws its particular charm from the uniqueness of its architectural surroundings.
It is located inside an ancient baglio, a typical Sicilian rural courtyard enclosed with a large door, at the centre of which lies a mulberry tree.

The space

This is the most elegant house in the Baglio.
Covering two levels, it has a total of over 110 square meters making it ideal accommodation for a family of 4/7 persons or two / three couples.
On the ground floor there is a large living room with two sofas (one of which can be converted into a bed for two people), There is an elegant kitchen, a double bedroom, and a bathroom with shower. The kitchen, the living room and the bedroom all open onto a charming interior patio where guests can have breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as relax on a chaise long in absolute privacy.
A brick staircase leads from the living room to the first floor. Here there is a spacious bedroom which has a reading area with two armchairs and a double bed which can be separated into two single beds. On request, we can add an extra bed, too. The room has an en-suite bathroom with shower.
From this room, through a balcony overlooking the patio, you can access a beautiful terrace with a stunning view over the courtyard and roofs of the Baglio. Here you can sunbathe, sip an aperitif contemplating the light of the spectacular sunsets over the Gulf of Castellammare, and enjoy the cool of the evening.
The house is the result of a recent and extensive restoration. The use of recycled materials, such as an antique ornate balcony with iron railings, and the choice of stone floorings and rustic wooden beams for the ceilings, give the house a special charm and character. The house has a heating system which makes it comfortable even for a winter stay.

The baglio was wonderful! There was plenty of space to cook, enjoy the house, and be very comfortable. Elena and Rosy made our stay very good, and we're friendly, responsive and very helpful! We hope to stay again!

Our family loved the Baglio, our three girls enjoyed the Olive Grove setting immensely. There were three outdoor cats and a kitten that my daughter’s were very taken with and will miss. We are on a 9 month travel adventure and after many city apartments it was lovely to be in the countryside. We visited in November and experienced some weather but still managed to have a bit of sun to enjoy the roof top sun terrace (my favorite Airbnb thus far our 10th). The kitchen has a gas range and a wonderful very efficient convection oven. We ate many meals at home. Also there is very hot water and an excellent heating system. We had a few technical problems due to the weather and Elena was very responsive and helpful. Thank you, Elena

Charming, convenient, typical Sicily! We spent a week in this beautiful house - and it was just perfect. It is close to the airport (20min) , but also close to the sea (5min) and some of the main sights of Sicily (Erice, Palermo, Segesta). Our favorite was the Zingaro National Park with cristal clear water for snorkling! A car is definitely needed because there is nothing so close you could walk. The Baglio is so charming with its mulberry tree in the center. It is surrounded by olive fields and from the roof top terrasse you have a wide view over the fields. There is lots of space for kids to rund an play outside. The house inside is plain modern in combination with traditional materials like an ancient balcony, stone floors or wooden joists. Unique! Communication with Elena was perfect - fast and very hospitably. Even though she was not there when we came, she sent Rosy who gave us the keys and showed us around. In total: highly recommended!

We had a great stay at Elenas house. Everything was perfect. We have received a lot of useful informations about the region, restaurants, etc. The house is a wonderful quite place to relax. The huge beach is only a few minutes to drive by car. Balestrate is a nice little city where you`ll find everything you need. Best Pizza is at "Ciro".

Wonderful home in an amazing location! The country house was recently remodeled with great taste. It has all the comforts, while maintaining a lot of charm and personality. The location is perfect: close to the highway in a strategic position for easy exploration of Western Sicily... but still not so close to be noisy. The area is very quiet and surrounded by olive and orange trees. It is close the the best beaches, sightseeing highlights, and great restaurants. If you need any help exploring the area, Elena and her family will always share their knowledge and their love for the island. They work hard to make your vacation an unforgettable one!

Our decision to book Elenas place was completely right. It was awesome. The baglio is a restored farm with a cozy patio, thoughtful designed and modern inside, well situated near Balestrate, a small city with really beautiful beaches around and regional attractions are easy to reach as well. We lived in the house #4, which is really big with two bedrooms, well equipped kitchen and two beautiful terraces. You live there very quiet even it is close to the highway from where you can go to Palermo or other directions. Due to the rural situation you have to be prepared for mosquitos. Even we did not meet Elena personally, the conversation was perfect, quick and smart - she is really a perfect host. We highly recommend Elena and her romantic place!

I was born in Milan where I live 9 months a year. During the summer months I move to Sicily with my family, in the ancient country house that we have inherited from our great-grandfather and where we hope to welcome you. I am a teacher of Italian language for foreigners and a music teacher, my husband is an opera singer, specialized in Baroque repertoire. We love and know in depth the Sicilian culture and we'll be happy to give you all the advice to spend a pleasant and interesting holyday.
