We stayed in the Dolores Suite for three full weeks, and loved every moment of it. The apartment was clean, spacious, and with lots of character. The outdoor terrace had a covered area where we ate all of our meals, and an uncovered spot where we lounged and read in the sun. It's right on the water so the view was perfect — I loved to catch what I called "the witching hour" as the sun was setting and the mountains glowed pink while the street lights began to turn on. We walked down to the beach on multiple days, and made frequent day trips to places like Palermo, Alcamo, and Trapani. The pace of life was lovely — Balestrate was the perfect spot for our Sicilian vacation. Be sure to visit La Piazzetta, the cafe/restaurant right next door (their pastries are divine), and Why Not?, which has great live music and happy hour specials. Thank you again Dolores for sharing your home with us! If you're wondering whether this is the apartment to choose, go for it — I'm hopeful that I'll be able to return here one day, to bask in the sun and catch the witching hour again. :)
Well it has all been said before - but to reiterate: charming home, beautifully kept with everything one could need; beautiful views; excellent Wi-Fi; easy parking; walk to beach and restaurants; authentic Sicilian small town with lovely people- not at all "touristy"; last, but not least, very helpful and attentive hostess. Many thanks, Concetta, wish we had stayed longer.
