Vous nous avez donné une bonne occasion de visiter la Sicile, un pays magnifique et varié (mer, montagne, monuments de tous les âges et... Siciliens absolument charmants). Votre accueil est parfait ainsi que celui de toutes les personnes que nous avons rencontrées en Sicile, où règne partout l'hospitalité. Vous nous avez proposé deux appartements confortables et très propres, bien situés à Balestrate, à quelques pas des plages et du centre de cette petite ville sympathique qui permet de visiter l'ouest de l'Île. Une voiture est nécessaire pour admirer des lieux pittoresques comerme Erice, Trapani, Scopello, les sites de Selinunte, Segeste et Agrigente, sans oublier Palerme. Nous sommes restés deux petites semaines, ce qui est insuffisant pour profiter des richesses de l'île où il faudra revenir. Merci encore pour votre hospitalité. P.S. il ne faut pas oublier de souligner la qualité de la nourriture et des vins du pays. Nous nous sommes régalés.

We would like to thank you very much for having organized our stay in Balestrate. We spend very good holidays; the apartment was perfect and Franscesco, the owners, welcame us very friendly.

We chose you because they said they could meet us from the airport. We did not want to hire a car, so this door-to-door service was great, especially as we arrived at night. Anna welcomed us warmly at the apartment and provided some croissants and fruit. Casa was perfect: clean, compact, air conditioned and 5 minutes from the beach. We quickly felt part of Sicilian life since the apartment was in a typical street, and soon learnt how to say "Buongiorno" to our neighbours! Balestrate is a small friendly town. In the evening the main street is closed to traffic and everyone from grandparents to toddlers come out for an evening stroll. We found the best spaghetti, pizzas and ice cream we have ever tasted! Shop keepers and waiters were patient and helpful. Boat trip to Scopello where we swam and snorkelled, and a train journey to Trapani where we took the cable car up to the medieval town of Erice was Amazing I would recommend "Case del Golfo" and "Altomare" to anyone who wants an authentic experience of seaside Sicily. We could not have wished for kinder hosts or a prettier location. Our teenage daughters said it was the best holiday they had ever had! Jane Kingsford August 2009

Our family of 3 (two adults and daughter of 13) spent 10 wonderful days in Balestrate in end of july. We stayed in one of Case del Golfo ' Houses, and found it quite lovely and very well cleaned and equipped. A beattiful master bedroom, a living room and a nice bathroom on the first floor, and a second bedroom, a kitchen, a dining room and a lovely terrace on the second floor. From the terrace we also had access to a lovely private sunroof with sunbeds and shower. We found the apartment perfect for us, and it also had three nice airconditioning systems. Balestrate is a small and cosy town, and the apartment is very central only 1 minute away from the city square.Piero was very helpful and we phoned him several times and he always gave good and valuable information. Maria Angela who owned the apartment was truly fantastic. She bought us fruits and drinks at the arrival, lunch, and gave us a guided tour in the city. The day before we went home she picked us up and took us too her private sunbeds at the La Grotta part of the Balestrate beach, and she also drove us to the airport at 7 in the morning when we were going home. Thank you, and we will surely come back later. Lasse

I enjoyed my stay in Sicily very much. Both flats were well-located with easy access to beautiful beaches, and a short walk into town to restaurants, supermarkets, bank, pharmacy, etc. The flats were comfortable. Again, overall the accommodations are excellent. More than that, I was so grateful to Anna Maria for all of her assistance. It was a comfort to know that I could visit Anna Maria at Altomare and she would answer my questions. She also arranged for me to take some enjoyable day trips to Agrigento, Mount Etna and Taormina. My day on Piero’s boat was fantastic – thank you! I went to Rosa dei Vente restaurant on two occasions, where the meals were delicious, and Stephano’s hospitality was exceptional. It was important to me that I had access to Internet which I found at Sim Sala Bin. There, I met Dario who was also really helpful. I will come back. !

We are a family of 5 from Norway and have spent 18 days in Balestrate July 09. We stayed in spacious apartment with a roof terrace the entire period, with occasional trips to several sites of interest mainly in north-west Sicily. Maria Angela is so kind and wonderful. She was there every time we needed something. The same with Piero, always helpful and checking if everything is fine. The town of Balestrate is uniquely situated about 40 min outside of Palermo with many sites of interest only a short car trip away. The town itself is relatively small, with everything accessible by foot. Restaurants are small and intimate some with a rich menu, some very modest.The people in Balestrate are kind and patient with tourists.Crime, for our part, was non existent. We felt safe in Balestrate and had no problem bathing while leaving our belongings unwatched. Driving in Italy is generally a stressful experience, but still, you should. Balestrate is a nice base to see things and there is a lot to see in Sicily. The public beach is cleaned. All in all we had a great time. Stig

Per quanto riguarda l'appartamento di siamo trovati bene, in quanto era bello, nuovo e spazioso, adatto a 3 persone. Balestrate è un ottimo punto di partenza per le escursioni essendo alla metà esatta tra le cose da vedere a Palermo e Trapani (Erice, San Vito, le saline,ecc.).Nella spiaggia di Balestrate, anche quando era affollata non si stava comunque stretti perchè anche quella libera)è veramente grande e sabbiosa, chi vuole le rocce può andare a Scopello o vicino a S.Vito. Poi la sera è piacevole fare una "passiata" in centro in quanto ci sono molte manifestazioni e molta gente in giro.Infine con i siciliani (inclusi i padroni di casa)ci siamo trovati benissimo perchè sono veramente simpatici e ospitali.
