Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
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
On two levels and covering 100 square meters, the house opens onto a large living room with two couches, a comfortable dining table and a beautiful kitchen that although open on one side, has an autonomous space, comfortable and organized. There are two bedrooms, both spacious and bright and both overlooking a magnificent olive grove. The largest has a double bed (160 x 200), the second two single beds that you can put side by side if you want. In both there is space for a cot.

A stone staircase leads from the living room to the large loft, where you find another living area usable as a third bedroom for 2/3 people. Here there is a sofa bed (140x 200) and space for an extra bed. This area leads to a lovely terrace (15 sq m) on the roof of the baglio where you can have breakfast with the morning sun, sunbathe in privacy or enjoy the cool of the evening.

The house has two large and elegant bathrooms, both with a shower, one on the ground floor and one in the loft area. The entrance of the house overlooks the courtyard of the baglio and in the space reserved in front of it you can relax on a sun lounger or dine by candlelight.

The house is the result of a recent restoration using recycled materials such as ancient stones and railings, and the choice of handmade terracotta for the floors and chestnut beams for the ceilings, give the house a particular charm. The house has a heating system that makes it comfortable even for a winter stay. Ideal accommodation for a family of 4/6 persons, for two/three couples, or for two families.

Location

Balestrate, Sicilia, Italy

The house is situated in the countryside of Balestrate - a small town in the beautiful Gulf of Castellammare, set between Palermo and Trapani on Sicily's northern coast.
The village and beach lie a mere 3km from the house, whilst the airports of Palermo and Trapani require just 20 and 35 minutes by car respectively.
Thanks to its convenient location, many of Sicily’s natural splendours and artistic gems lie a mere stone’s throw from Balestrate (with visual and gastronomic treats including the tuna Scopello, the Zingaro Nature Reserve, San Vito lo Capo, Segesta, Erice, Monreale, Palermo and Selinunte).
The coast of the Gulf of Castellammare alternates long stretches of sandy beach, ideal for those with small children, with spectacular rocky stretches interspersed with coves.
You will be within touching distance of a variety of art venues, ranging from the famous archaeological sites of Segesta and Selinunte to the art of Norman Monreale and Palermo. Also nearby, the charming village of Erice provides spectacular views of the islands of Egadi and the salt pans of Trapani.
