The main beach of Castellammare del Golfo is only 5/10 mins by car. A bus operated by a company called Russo provides a connection with beaches, the bus station (email hidden)om the house. During the summer months there are numerous beach bars with sunbathing facilities, pedalos, baby areas etc…
There are also several other beaches, offering more tranquillity and the option of scuba diving.
In about 10 minutes you can reach the famous seaside resort of Guidaloca, with its turquoise sea and it’s terrific landscapes.
The maritime village of Scopello (15 min) is a natural paradise, small but rich of traditions. A place able to preserve itself as time goes by: few houses, the courtyard, a church, the Faraglioni and the Tonnara. The tonnara is one of the most ancient of the island, not used anymore, is the proof of a former flourishing activity. It evokes the charme of an abandoned place and the silence that surrounds it, is interrupted only by the sound of the waves. The buildings of the slaughterhouse “mattanza”, the stock house where the tuna was stored and the anchors used for the fishing nets are still visible.
There's also the nature reserve of Zingaro (15 min): has a coast 7 kilometres long that is beautiful and uncontaminated and overlooks the gulf of Castellammare and the mountains, enriched by the small bays and the evocative vertical cliffs. Important for the wide variety of rare and endemic plants, the Zingaro is also important for the fauna: in fact the existence of small ecological paradises allows a fauna variety that doesn’t exist in other parts of the island. The area is also of archaeological importance thanks to the spectacular cave, “grotta dell’Uzzo” where there was one of the first prehistoric settlements of the island. Walkers paradise & excellent opportunities for scuba diving whether you are professional or it's your first time.
The village of San Vito Lo Capo is a renowned bathing resort, especially famous for its enchanting beach: crystal water with the colours of turquoise, green and intense blue.
Segesta: Mythological destination highly recommended, with its Punic temple in Doric style built outside the city walls at the end of the Vth century B.C. but also important for the theatre that overlooks the sea.
Erice: small Medieval village with its castle, the fascinating churches and a breathtaking view at the “Belvedere”, the Punic fortifications, the castle of Venere, the Medieval historical centre…but let's not forget the typical almonds desserts!
Trapani: a fishing and ferry port with a long history. Trapani was an important town throughout the Middle Ages, and it is the medieval phase of the town's past which is most evident in the old town. It is possible to see numerous dazzlingly white mountains shimmering in the sun: these are hills of Trapani’s salt-mills, an evocative and unreal scenario.
Egadi Islands: Favignana, Levanzo and Marettimo, pearls of the Mediterranean area, of an undeniable beauty, with natural caves that overlook the cobalt blue sea, but also remainings of prehistorically civilizations and famous for the “Mattanza” (traditional fishing of tunas).
Marsala - Mothia: Marsala is famous for the sweet wine, but also for the isle of Mothia and the Salinas with wind mills. The Isle of Mothia is a Punic site where the Phoenicians stopped in the VIIIth century B.C. before settling in Sicily. The island is connected to land thanks to a small undersea tunnel.
Selinunte: the most important archaeological area in Europe, proof of the Hellenic civilization in Sicily.
Palermo: the Capital of Sicily, is a melting pot of many different cultures that throughout the years have been conquering the island and the city, loving it, fighting for it and leaving strong traditions that still coexist today. One of the richest towns in the island for history and art: the Cathedral, the “Palatina” Chapel, the “Quattro Canti”, the Pretoria Square, the Martorana Church and of course the traditional markets of “Ballaro’” and “Vucciria” where delight the palate with local vegetables, fruits and typical “panelle”and “arancine”.
Monreale: a Medieval town known for its Arab-Norman Cathedral, built in the 12th century and famous for its Byzantine mosaiccovered interior walls

L'esperienza di soggiorno al Japanese Studio di Vanessa ed Enrico è stata positivissima. Il posto era esattamente come nelle foto e la posizione ottima. In un minuto a piedi si raggiunge la via principale di Castellammare, la spiaggia e la sua magnifica passeggiata lungo il mare.
Vanessa ed Enrico sono gli host che tutti vorrebbero: solari, disponibili...ci hanno fatto sentire subito a nostro agio e ci hanno saputo dare alcune ottime dritte per la nostra vacanza in Sicilia. Seguendo i loro consigli abbiamo visitato posti bellissimi e mangiato molto bene a Castellammare. Assolutamente consigliato! Sicuramente qualora tornassimo in Sicilia faremo tappa al Japenese Studio un'altra volta!

All more than perfect in Vanessa and Enrico house!
The studio is nice, comfortable, perfectly clean, big and in a perfect location! But on top of it I recommend you to stay in Vanessa and Enrico house for their welcome! They took their time to recommend us their favorites place in the area as their favorites bar and restaurants :)
Thank you very much! Would be very nice to host them back in France or hopefully have the possibility to come back in Sicily and visit them again!
Accoglienza splendida da parte degli host, sempre disponibili a dare tutte le info necessarie a passare un bel soggiorno in zona, appartamento pulito e accogliente, in via calma nel centro di Castellammare. Facilità di parcheggio davanti al portone di casa, supermercati raggiungibili sia a piedi che in macchina in 2 min, a 1 min di macchina dalla strada statale che collega Castellammare con l'autostrada e tutte le località che si possono visitare nel circondario.
Veramente da provare.
vanessa y enrico son muy amables y te ayudan en todo lo que pueden. el apartamento es comodo y muy funcional.
The experience was overall excellent. The appartment is nice and comfortable and hosts Enrico and Vanessa are very friendly. Everything was great. 5 stars.
Io e il mio ragazzo abbiamo soggiornato per due notti nella casa di Vanessa e Enrico e siamo stati benissimo. La casa è molto grande, ben tenuta e accogliente; la posizione comoda per visitare i dintorni e Enrico è stato un host perfetto, disponibile e pronto a darci mille consigli.
This studio is a great option for a couple and is very well maintained, clean and located in rather quiet part of town, yet is close to everything (shopping & entertainment) within short walking distance. You will get an ancient feel but with all relevant modern amenities (comfortable bed, nice shower/bathroom, well equipped kitchen, Wi-Fi, AC, and free parking in front of the house). Vanessa & Enrico were extremely friendly, very personal, welcoming and helpful with providing a lot of useful information about the area. They are very kind and were ready to assist all the way through booking, arranging arrival and during our stay.
Castellamare Del Golfo is a cute and interesting town (not focused on tourists) perfectly located if you want to explore north-west part of Sicily (Segesta, Scopello, Palermo, Erice – if you rent a car).
We would highly recommend this studio that offers excellent value for money.
Thank you Vanessa & Enrico for your hospitality and for making our Sicilian vacation VERY memorable & pleasant.
