Wonderful Sicilian Experience
Lovely farmhouse, beautifully decorated and very clean. We had a very warm welcome by the family and even got lucky and happened to be there at olive picking time. What a great experience! Location is central to many activities in the area.
The perfect place to relax and enjoy life in the countryside
We had a relaxing week at the farmhouse, enjoying walks nearby and making use of the well-equipped kitchen. This was also a great base for exploring Trapani, the Egadi islands, Erice and more. Our hosts were welcoming, friendly and so kind! We highly recommend this property.
We arrived late (almost midnight) - tired and hungry - at Casale Stagnone, but Pietro and Guiseppina made us feel very welcome despite the late hour. Aware that we’d arrived without the chance to do any shopping, Pietro led us to a nearby gelataria where we filled our faces with delicious ice cream. Midnight ice cream-eating is clearly a Sicilian thing - the place was full of families! The following morning Pietro and Guiseppina gave us a breakfast tray, with bread, biscuits, marmalade, fresh coffee and fresh figs from their trees. This was really above and beyond what was expected from an accommodation-only arrangement, but the family’s generosity continued throughout our stay. Casale Stagnone olive oil was there for the using (delicious) and there was almost a daily offering from the farm (figs, grapes) or Guiseppina’s kitchen (Sicilian specialities such as ‘arancine’). The family were very welcoming yet not the least bit intrusive. A perfect balance. Pietro was a great source of information on the area and its history.
The house is comfortable and charming - all modern conveniences (except a dishwasher, but believe me - you’ll love the kitchen sink!). Casale Stagnone is a careful reconstruction with an old Sicilian farmhouse feel, very sensitively created by Pietro & Guiseppina. All that and a sunny roof terrace and shady veranda. Oh how we loved that table on the veranda …. So much so that we didn’t eat out at night at all, but simply had veranda picnics. And breakfasts.
Finally, the animals ... Perhaps the most winning cat we’ve ever met in the person of Amadeo - there was a tug of love going on between us and the other two guests for his attention. Amadeo-time was another reason for not going out at night. The other two cats were sweeties too, but oh, Amadeo! Hens, peacocks, at least one rabbit and the three cats all live the good life in this magical place. I can’t recommend it enough - it really is special.
Wonderful farm house with kind and generous owners.
We loved the location and the surroundings of vineyards olive trees and much more.
The house is in very good order with many traditional touches.
The owners were very welcoming and kind and generously shared some of their seasonal produce with us.
Best place to stay in Trapani or Marsala area!
We stayed the 2nd time with Pietro, mainly for going kitesurfing in Lo Stagnone. The farm is just so lovely and Pietro and his family are truly wonderful hosts! At this place everything fits: love in every detail, huge flat, roof terrace with wonderful sunset view, fully equipped with everything you need and close to the kitesurf spot! Try do your own pasta, taste from various self grown fruits or cook with selfmade olive oil and enjoy your holiday at this place.
Thanks Pietro!We hope we can enjoy a stay at your place in the future again!
Wir haben uns bei Pietro als einem sehr zuvorkommenden u freundlichen Vermieter ausgesprochen wohl gefühlt. Das Haus eignet sich hervorragend als Ausgangspunkt für Erkundungstouren im Nordwesten Siziliens u bietet gleichzeitig wohltuende Ruhe. Wir können diese Unterkunft wirklich uneingeschränkt empfehlen.
