The apartment is located in the new area of the city of Sciacca. Really close to supermarkets and winery. The city center is about 200 mt faraway (5 minutes walking) that means that you can easily leave the car in your private parking and visiting downtown just walking. The old harbour is about 300 mt faraway, and the beaches are far about 500 mt.
Sciacca is a really safe city. It has 45.000 inhabitants and many Pizzerias and Restaurants with affordable price and high quality food. Fish is the speciality of the place, but also the famous "granita" or "cannoli" are sensations that a visitor can't miss.
It's a perfect place to go for a family.
In summertime there are also many kiosks on the beaches that are open all night long playing music and entertaining people.
Sciacca is an old city where you can still find aspects from the arab and norman period. Many are the ancient building of the city and unique is its main square that gives to all the visitors a breathaking view of the mediterrenean and african sea. Of interest are the arab quartier and the fisherman quartiers that creates a kind of labirinth (casba) of small street and alleys that connect the old harbour to the San Michele quartier.
Sciacca is also famous for its SPA, where you can enjoy a warm solphoreum bath or a sauna in prehistoric caves...you can't miss it!
Sciacca is dominated by the Mount Kronio where you have a superb view of the area and where is located the therapeutic center founded by Saint Calogero.
One of the most important thing to see in Sciacca is the Filippo Bentivegna's Garden of Enchantments the Sicily's famous outsider sculpture garden.
Last but not least Sciacca is famous for its beaches. Sandy, Rocky, Cliffs...the shore varies and gives you the opportunity of choosing everyday a new experience.

Our hosts were very generous, warm and welcoming. They will come meet you, if you're lost, and escort you to the apartment. The gentleman that met us even took us out for caffe and pastry, (on his tab!), after we arrived early for check in. In all of Italy that I traveled I felt the most welcome here in Sicily and I cannot wait to return and see these people again!
