Great for exploring Western Sicily

Castellammare del Golfo Sicily

Once a small fishing village this fascinating Sicilian town allows visitors an insight into the ‘real Sicily’.  We are pleased to offer three lovely family run hotels here, one with the added bonus of a swimming pool. 

Castellammare is nestled around its pretty fishing harbour, lined with sumptuous seafood restaurants – and has a beautiful sandy beach which is just a ten minutes drive away.

Most spectacular coastline in Sicily

The north west coastline is really scenic, with lots of lovely little coves and pleasant walks – especially along the renowned ‘Zingaro Nature Reserve’ which stretches from Scopello to San Vito. Boat trips are also available, which stop along the way for swimming and snorkelling. Castellammare itself is a maze of authentic backstreets where you can really integrate into local Sicilian life and enjoy typical Sicilian specialities in the bars and restaurants.

Beyond Castellammare

Castellammare’s location makes perfect sense to hire a car and see the delights of Western Sicily. The capital Palermo is close at hand, as is the superb Green temple and amphitheatre at Segesta. Both the stunning sandy beach at San Vito and the incredible hilltop arabic town of Erice are within easy access by car.
