Why Antonino Zappalà chose Palermo

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.

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!!!

Nichts wie hin !

  • 5 of 5

Absolut empfehlenswert!

Alle Angaben waren korrekt, das Häuschen ist nett, gemütlich, aber auch funktional eingerichtet. Endlich gibt es mal ausreichend Kochgeschirr und Zubehör :-). Die Außenküche ist im Sommer wirklich Gold wert.

Besonders prima: Man ist hier wirklich viel Platz, das Grundstück ist geschützt und weitestgehend nicht einsehbar. Die Klimaanlage funktioniert bestens. Zum schönen Strand waren es nicht einmal 5 Minuten zu Fuß.

Alles war sauber und gepflegt, Sonderwünsche wurden von dem sehr netten Vermieter Nino sofort erfüllt. Alles war so unkompliziert, wie man es im Urlaub gerne haben möchte.

Balestrate selbst ist ein nettes Städtchen, viele Geschäfte und Restaurants, verkehrstechnisch gut angebunden. Ein paar Discounter (Lidl, Carrefour und Ard) gibt es auch in der Nähe.

Die Gegend ist schön - selbst im Spätsommer grün, hügelig und ein großer Strand, der auch für Kinder geeignet ist.

Empfehlenswert: ein Ausflug zum Normannendom nach Monreale - top!

excellent !!!

  • 5 of 5

Location très confortable..NOus avons apprécié la terrasse couverte ainsi que la cuisine et les douches extérieures. C'est un lieu où l'ont vit dehors avec tout le confort nécessaire.

La plage est à 3mn à pied, situation géographique idéale pour visiter les sites de l'ouest sicilien sans passer trop de temps sur la route (ERICE - PALERME - CEFALU - SELINONTE - SEGESTE - Réserve naturelle DELLO ZINGARO - SCOPPELO - et d'autres.....)

Impératif : aller dîner au restaurant LE BISTRO à TRAPETTO à 5 min en voiture devant un coucher de soleil magnifique sur une superbe petite plage.. Pâtes et pizzas à tomber par terre!!

Un grand merci à Antonino pour sa grande gentillesse et sa disponibilité. Nous avons rarement eu un hôte aussi serviable

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 :)
