The small seaside town of Balestrate is where many Italians go to escape the colder north of the country and experience the good life on the warm shores of the Gulf of Castellammare. Located on the Northern coast of Sicily between the famous cities of Palermo and Trapani it offers beautiful beaches, great local food and the chance to have a holiday that is as relaxed or as active as you want it to be. You could experience it as the Italians do by couchsurfing in Balestrate but there is a much better option. With 9flats you can rent a private holiday apartment in Balestrate and get the best of both worlds – the chance to live as the locals do coupled with the comfort and privacy of being in your own exclusive living accommodation.
Living the good life in a holiday apartment in Balestrate
It’s a unique proposal offered by 9flats in destinations worldwide, from the historic like a holiday apartment in Athens to the cool and contemporary like a vacation flat in New York. These apartments are far removed from the big anonymous tourist hotels having been furnished and equipped by the owners for their own personal comfort. Your holiday flat in Balestrate will be a home from home beside the long sandy beaches that stretch for miles along the coast beside a blue sparkling sea. The sands are perfect for long leisurely walks followed by a drink beside the sea in one of the many cafes that line the Via Madonna del Ponte.
Enjoy sweet wines and sumptuous food from a Balestrate holiday flat
This area was once at the heart of the Marsala wine producing industry and has a long gastronomic tradition based on the sea and fresh local produce. Cuttlefish dishes are a particular speciality as they abound in the waters off the coast to such an extent that the locals call themselves ‘sicciaroti’, the cuttlefish people. From your vacation home in Balestrate you will be sorely tempted to go out for breakfast as it is delicious here – fresh croissants filled with sweet ricotta cheese or cream and marmalade and washed down with a smooth cappuccino. You could also try the local speciality of ice cream in a brioche bun which is as unusual as it is delicious.
See the island sights from a holiday home in Sicily
A Sicilian vacation home in Balestrate is also an ideal base for sightseeing. Castle Calatubo in the town offers great views of the sea and countryside, while an easy walk along the beach takes you to the charming town and fishing port of Castellammare del Golfo. A short drive along the coast could take you to a holiday flat in Palermo if you wanted to explore this famous old city, or you could take an overnight ferry ride to the mainland and stay in a vacation home in Naples. With 9flats both Sicily and Italy are yours to explore at the pace you choose.
