Need Advice on Accommodations

Hello all. As part of a 16 day trip to Sicily, we'll be visiting the town of Santa Margherita de Belice to trace our family's roots.

My question is, does anyone know of an agriturismo near here (maybe a 30-40 minute drive)? I've noticed there aren't many places to stay in and around this area and was hoping someone could offer suggestions.

We're also looking to visit Western Sicily, so if I could find an agriturismo that would be convenient for visiting both Santa Margherita de Belice and the sights of Western Sicily (Erice, Trapani, San Vito lo Capo, Scopello, Segeste, etc...), that would be ideal.

I've looked into staying in Sciacca for maybe two nights. Is there another town that might be suitable as well?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

We stayed at the Fattoria Manostalla Villa Chiarelli in Balestrate to explore western Sicily. It is about a 40 minute drive west of the Palermo airport. It is not fancy but clean and comfortable and the food delicious.

If you have other questions please just ask.

Hope this helps,

Consider Masseria Pernice in Camporeale. The masseria is a working wine estate.

Santa Marghita de Belice is 34km from Camporeale and it would take 00h35 to drive.
