“Wonderful peaceful old house filled with amenities.”
Reviewed 9 July 2012 for a stay in April 2012

This charming old casa is located right at the beach in front of a semi-completed marina. You can sit on the balcony from one of the upstairs bedrooms and watch the small boats coming and going. When you arrive, there is wonderful local pastry and a bottle of wine waiting for you, compliments of the owner. The location is also great....about ten minutes to the town square. Having the washing machine and a garage with clotheslines was a nice bonus, as we had already been on the go for about 2-1/2 weeks before arriving in Balestrate, so were able to leave there, heading for Siena, with each of us having our suitcase fll of clean clothes again. Oh yes, there is the local train that passes by very close to the house......sometimes it's just the engine....quite charming and we found we would be watching for it on a regular basis. I would recommend this house to anyone who wants to visit the quaint little town of Balestrate.
