This is a nice place for family vacation with small children. Hosts are responsive and attentive, could help with any questions starting from transfers and renting car to organizing small domestic trivia. House is small but comfortably with all necessary domestic things. I would like to underline that all our stay was organized by Eleonora and Antonio and many thanks to them.
The place itself looks like the resort for Italians. No noisy tourists, not crowded and large sandy beach, beautiful sea and very friendly people.
If you prefer more active holiday, the car renting is necessary. Nearest towns is about 4-6 km. The towns are more tourist but not looks like that crowded and full of hotels places. It is like a mix of family restaurants, hotels and local rest places with small and nice touristic zones.
Eleonora helped us with renting car in local company. It is cost effective and also saved our money because renting only for the days we really needed for traveling. The owner of car rental company picked me up to the car Parking at Alcamo from home and then back home after finishing car rental term.
Alcamo Marina is good base for traveling on north Sicily. You can reach San Vito lo Capo or Palermo during hour but also the road to Valley of Temples on south coast took us about 2 hours. The roads are good and drivers are pleasure. People who lives on the plain would get good experience to drive in rocks. It is really nice and not so hard.
In the end of vacation we were picked up to airport Trapany which is, by the way, one of the NATO base with military planes and helicopter and few hours later landed 3500 km from Sicily with new impressions.
