Make a self catering cottage or holiday rental at Mazara del Vallo, Sicily your home away from home

Mazarro del Vallo is on the west coast of Sicily, to the south of the town of Marsala. It is surrounded by vineyards and olive groves on the gently rolling hills. It is Italy's most famous fishing port within a protected natural harbour and it accounts for 20% of the national fishing. The church of San Nicolo Regale has three apses and some unusual battlements. Beneath its floor the remains of Roman mosaics have been found. There is also an 11th century cathedral, recently restored, a museum and a beautiful seafront with shady gardens.

Things to Do at Mazara del Vallo, Sicily

Beaches

The area around your Mazara del Vallo villa has some good sandy beaches making it a great choice for a beach vacation. The famous resort of San Vito del Capo near Trapani is close by, along with Marsala's Egadi Beach. Lidos are semi-private beaches with chairs and parasols for hire and lifeguards on duty.

Sample Local Cuisine

For a taste of Sicilian cuisine try the aubergine (eggplant) caponata, a stew of tomaotoes, aubergines, capers and olives, often served as an antipasto. You should definitely leave room for dessert - the Sicilian cassata cake is a maraschino-soaked sponge covered in ricotta cheese, candied fruit and nuts.

Boat Trips

At the nearby port of Trapani there are a host of day trips which can be taken by boat. Head for the smaller islands such as Favignana and Pantelleria or book a fishing charter for a day.

Apart from the inevitable heat of a Sicilian midsummer, it was ideal chilling. The property was large enough for us all to do the sports and activities we wanted, privately or collectively: swimming, playing tennis and billiards, sketching or just reading and listening to music. It is well-equipped, though the kitchen could benefit from some minor improvements. Fresh food from the garden augmented the generous welcome pack left by Rosella and Sergio. Mazara is a scruffy town with a characterful old quarter, lots of restaurants and a lively market. Not an good centre for seeing the main tourist attractions in the north and west, but in easy reach of the big classical sites and of some lovely quirky places – Sciacca, the windmills, Erice.

We especially liked the covered area outside where we would have our meals. The area is quiet, with a short walk to the sea. Mazara itself, about 2 miles away, is a beautiful town. The Murana family are delightful. Nothing is too much trouble. we were given dinner - at no expense - on our first night, despite arriving at about 11pm!"
