Mariella was a lovely host, and the apartment was lovely. All mod cons really, and the WIFI was a real bonus to occupy a little down time for the kids. As the for the huge roof terrace, well that is the real winner. We had cook outs up there, sun bathing, cards with kids and the sunsets were something special. We were 2 adults and 3 kids for 2 weeks around Balestrate. The food, beaches, snorkelling and people were all fantastic. We couldn't recommend it enough.
We stayed in the Sea House apartment at Casa Tuzzo for the months of December and January. The apartment is on the third floor and has a wonderful south facing roof terrace which was the best feature of this comfortable apartment. We were able to sunbathe and relax out there almost daily with the midday temperatures in the sun and out of the wind there nearing 30 even during these months. The apartment is well equiped but the living space may be a bit small for larger groups, although there are two bedrooms (one very large) and there's plenty of room on the terrace. There are windows facing all four compass directions for great views of the entire bay. The harbour was down a flight of stairs fifty yards from the apartment's front door and was very convenient for walking our dog. Immediately to the east of the harbour is Balestrate's beach. We went for runs on the more than 5km long beach to the west which connects Balestrate with Alcamo Marina and Castellammare del Golfo. Breathtakingly beautiful! Especially the views of Scopello where there is also a large nature reserve with hiking trails in the hills along the seaside. Nearby we also enjoyed visiting Terrasini for lunch on the terrace on several occasions and a little further west near Palermo Mondello was also one of our favourite spots. Another favourite was Sciacca on the southern coast. We also enjoyed Corleone, San Vito Lo Capo, Trapani, the ghost town of Poggioreale, Salemi, Marsala, Agrigento with it's ancient Greek temples, Enna, Catania, Aci Castello, Aci Trezza, Messina and of course Palermo. We also loved the buzz of the main street and main square of Alcamo on a saturday evening. One last don't miss is Cefalu which is also a beautiful seaside town. Sicily is a lovely rugged island and we shall definitely return and will use Natalia and Piero's apartment as our base once again when we do so !!
We decided to visit Sicily in october and it was still "summer" and Piero welcomed us in the best way with complimentary bottle of wine, fresh fruit and "cassatelle" with ricotta cheese. The house is spacious and comfortable, close to the beach and the city center, everything is walking distance. Balestrate is very calm and cozy not far from main attractions like Erice, Segesta, Palermo, Castellamare del golfo, Zingaro natural reserve. We definitely want come back maybe in Summer.
Appartement propre, proche de la plage (et de la gare...mais ce n'est pas dérangeant, ce n'était pas bruyant) et propre, très pratique et superbe terasse sur le toit.
We enjoyed our stay here very much. The apartment has lovely views both of the pretty town of Balestrate and of the sea. The rooms are comfortable and there is a lovely feeling of room to breathe. The terrace overlooking the town is lovely, lots of sun and very private. The fruit and wine on our arrival was much appreciated and the kitchen had lots of little extras ( oil, vinegar, sugar, coffee, honey and more) which all added to making us feel right at home. It is well located at a half way point to many of the area's attractions. And a great and modestly priced seafood restaurant in town. Piero really follows up with great service and ensures plenty of information on what to do. In sum, it is charming, great value and friendly people to make sure all is fine.
We spent two months in this lovely town, in an amazing house. Piero and Natalia were excellent hosts. The house is well equipped and the terrace is wonderful. The weather for November and December was very comfortable, even able to swim in the sea. The folks of Balestrate were kind and very helpful. The quality of the food, from meat to fruit and veggies to fresh baked bread and pastries was very good. Balestrate itself is an easy town
to walk so you dont need a car. The train and bus very convenient to travel the island.
Thank you to Peiro and Natalia and the whole island of Sicily for a great two months!!
