Why Antonino Zappalà chose Balestrate

Villa Maria is our Beach House, since we were children we spent here many summers. The beach close to the Villa combines the relaxation of a large public beach to the comfort and the liveliness of the lido with bars and animation.

What makes this villa unique

The convenience of the proximity to the sea and the safety and tranquillity of the location inside a private residence makes it the perfect place for your holidays.

Our Stay in September

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Nino's villa for a week at the end of September and immediately felt at home. The villa was lovely with all of the facilities that you would need for a good holiday. The addition of ping pong and playing cards was the perfect distraction when we wanted a little diversion.

We particularly liked the restaurant Onda Azzura just 50 mts away where everyone was very welcoming and we met some lovely people there. Also we would recommend La Rosa dei Venti in Balestrate. Exellent food and hosts at both restaurants.

Nino was the perfect host, very welcoming and helpful. Thank you.

We would definitely recommend this villa and hope to visit again.

Ciao Nino.

Patricia and Leo.

Harmonische Autonomie

  • 5 of 5

Dank einer sehr guten Kommunikation mit Nino Zappala haben wir unseren Verabredungspunkt gut gefunden, wurden sehr freundlich begrüßt und zu dem schönen Haus, außerhalb des Ortes gelegen, geführt.

Das Haus liegt in einem abgeschlossenen Areal, auf dem sich etliche Ferienhäuser befinden. Der erste Eindruck beinhaltet viel Raum, gut ausgestattete Küche und Zimmer, viele liebevoll gestaltete Details im Außenbereich. Eine Außenküche mit Grill und dreiflammigen Gasherd, sowie Spülbecken perfektioniert diesen noch.

Nino gab uns Tips, wo wir gut einkaufen gehen können, wo man gut Essen gehen kann in Balestrate und welche Strände schön sind.

An allen Fenstern und Türen gab es Insektenschutzgitter, was sehr hilfreich war, denn es gab etliche Mücken dort ( Mückenschutz nicht vergessen!)

Auf der Dachterrasse gibt es einen Sonnenschirm, Tisch und Stühle und einen wunderschönen Blick.

Vom Haus hatten wir einen super Ausgangspunkt, um den Nordwesten Siziliens zu erkunden - ein Auto ist aber absolut notwendig. Balestrate ist ein Kleinod im Golf von Castellamare.

Wir als Paar haben die schöne Atmosphäre und Privatheit sehr genossen. Sicherlich werden wir versuchen, wieder zu kommen, um einen Superurlaub zu verbringen.

Simple but beautiful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Hi Nino,

Thanks for the beautiful days in your villa. We enjoyed it very much. Everything you need is there and Balestrate is a very strategic Place to visit everything around in the west. The tip to take the bus to Palermo was very good and we had a great day there.

Our daughter (6 years) liked it also very much. Just running around the house and using one of the many different places to sit down and eat. She also liked the BBQ place and hot outside shower.

And of course she and we liked the possibility to walk 3 minutes to the beach and put the feet in the water and to collect shells.

Très agréable

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé 15 jours agréable dans cette villa.

Elle se situe à 2 minutes à pieds d'une plage de sable, très agréable.

Le restaurant "le Squalo" à 2 minutes à pieds également est bon marché (7€ la pizza) et nous avons trouvé la cuisine de bon goût.

Les douches extérieures sont un vrai plus.

Tout le nécessaire est disponible.

Nino est une personne fort sympathique, il a tout fait pour rendre notre séjour le plus réussi. Encore merci.

Point à améliorer : le sommier du grand lit mériterait d'être changé.

schattig huisje in rustige omgeving

  • 4 of 5

Na alle lovende recensies waren we erg nieuwsgierig naar deze accommodatie. Het schattig huisje ligt in een buitenwijkje nabij Balestrate, goed beveiligd dmv afsluitbare hekken. Als je van rust houdt is dit the place to be, met zijn leuke buiten en dak terras. Het centrum ligt te ver weg om te lopen en het strand is niet het strand wat wij gewend zijn in n Nederland. De zonsondergang is daarin tegen prachtig. Om de hoek van het huisje zijn twee prima restaurantjes te vinden, waar je heerlijk voor een klein prijsje kunt genieten van overheerlijke pizza's en pasta!! Aantal minpuntjes die wij heben ondervonden: De trein die ongeveer 1 x per uur voorbij raast overdag is duidelijk hoorbaar, honden van de buren slaan de hele dag regelmatig aan en.....tijgermuggen! Al met al was het een prima verblijf met lekkere temperaturen. Antonino onze gastheer was zeer vriendelijk, enthousiast en zeer behulpzaam.

Beautiful house in quiet area extremely close to the beach

  • 4 of 5

We had a good stay in the house in Balustrade.

As a start we were warmly welcomed by Nino Zappala, our host. Fortunately Nino spoke English well which made for our shortcoming of not speaking Italian.

The house itself is located very close to Balustrade, maybe short of a km, in a urban area with a private access which was very quiet when were there (early May). The house has all it needs, well equipped kitchen, 2 bedrooms and a nice living. Good Wifi!!!

Around the house there is plenty of room for outdoor living incl a good outdoor kitchen and 2 outdoor showers, playing table tennis, finding sun or shade and to top it off, there is a beautiful roof terrace when you can nicely catch early morning or late afternoon sun. Very relaxing....

Overall a very nice place to stay, close to nice places to visit (incl. Palermo, Segeste where there is very nice Greec temple and theatre and Parc Naturale Zinger for nice hiking.

Thanks Nino!!!

Car: recommended

The Villa is located at 30 km from Palermo "Falcone and Borsellino" Airport and 50 km from the low-cost Trapani-Birgi airport. From the port of Palermo the distance is about 40 km. From both airports and the port of Palermo the Villa can be reached by highway A29 Palermo-Mazara del Vallo, exit at Balestrate. Given the proximity of the railway station you can navigate comfortably travel by train, especially towards Trapani.

Balestrate is a small town of about 6000 inhabitants, its location directly on the Sea offers optimal conditions for those who love to spend relaxing days on its golden beaches. The joyful atmosphere of the country is confirmed by the kindness of its inhabitants. Within the town there are also excellent restaurants where you can enjoy typical Sicilian dishes.

The town is also an important tourist hub: in addition to its golden beaches, in fact, from Balestrate is easy to access to wonderful places such as Castellammare del Golfo, Scopello, Zingaro Nature Reserve, San Vito lo Capo, Erice, Trapani, Aeolian Islands, Palermo, Monreale, Agrigento and Selinunte.

We also have the possibility to get in touch with professional tourist guides, please contact us to learn more!

The villa is located in the countryside, so the proper sounds of the countryside can be heard from time to time. Moreover, as in the whole northern Sicily, there is a railroad all along the coast: the villa is on the coast, so the railroad is near. This has never been a problem to anyone, as you can see from the reviews, since there are only a few small trains passing: that's furthermore a romantic and funny thing, for example for me when I was a kid :)
