Make a holiday rental home or villa in Alcamo, Italy your home away from home

The city of Alcamo dates back to around the 9th Century and is the fourth largest city in the Trapani province of north-west Sicily. Self-catering accommodation in Alcamo makes for a great alternative to staying in Palermo, offering visitors a truly authentic Sicilian experience but keeping them within touching distance of the capital. The city includes historical sights, thermal baths and high quality restaurants at some of its main attractions.

Things to do in Alcamo, Italy

The main historical sight to see in Alcamo is the 14th Century Castle of the Counts of Modica - which is identified by its four towers, and also well worth a visit is the 18th Century Alcamo Cathedral, which houses a number of works of art from famous Sicilian sculptors and painters. The city centre also has all of the supermarkets, shops and amenities that are required for a self-catering holiday, so those that simply want to relax with a glass of wine on the balcony of their Alcamo holiday villa will find it easy to stock up on supplies.

Some of the best bars and restaurants can be found at nearby Alcamo marina, where you can sit outside with a dish of local produce and a glass of Sicilian wine, and enjoy the fantastic views and usually-excellent weather. The local beach is just a short distance from the marina, and there are several other beaches to be enjoyed along the picturesque coastline.

Aqua Calda thermal baths are popular with both locals and tourists, and have a hot pool which is a constant 40C. The thermal waters are both relaxing and therapeutic, and there are also colder pools to cool off in. Another visitor attraction in the local area is the Zingaro Nature Reserve, which covers 7km of rugged and spectacular coastline.

The great Sicilian weather can be enjoyed to its fullest during a holiday in Alcamo, as summer temperatures often reach above 30C – ideal for relaxing on the beach. Winters are mild, and even the coldest month (January) has a daily mean temperature of 11C.

They met us at the place, explained everything. We really appreciated the well organized and equipped appartments, especially the sea view from the cozy and wide balcony. We grilled sea food at this balcony and had dinner enjoying the sunset, meditaiting every morning looking at the sea. This plce is really very spacious and comfy. Beach is nice, very close to the appartment, water is warm and clean. Good parking place with top cover. A few good restaurants are located near by, we also found very nice beach bar with good music. We definitely recommend this place to relax and enjoy the time in Sicily. This place is suitable for everybody, for couples, families with kids and friends.

We found it relaxing and it was in our experience a unique set up. The roofed kitchen dining area was beside the amazing pool which allowed us to cook or chill while watching the children dive in from the diving board all day long. The kitchen has a gas bbq grill which could feed an army. The owners were extremely helpful even to the point of coming for a drive to show us the supermarket and short cut locations. They were on hand if you needed them to advise with any local detail and even cooked us an amazing cake and gave us the recipie. The accommodation is finished to a very high standard and the beds were perfectly comfortable . It is an amazing unspoilt area with the old medieval town of Alcomo or the port which had really good restaurants . The beachs are great , not crowded. A car is needed but the distances to beach or the towns are not far. This accomadation got a thumbs up from both adults and children . We all fell in love with Sicily .
