“My brother and I stayed in the Borgo for a week at the end of August and we had a great time. The Borgo has been beautifully restored and the gardens and pool area were very relaxing. The apartment we stayed in had 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with a well equipped kitchen and enough space for both of us. There are some tables and chairs in the courtyard which are nice to relax and read.
The Borgo is in a great location as it’s close to a few different beaches and also lots of sights and places to visit, most just a short/medium drive away. Martjin was also a cycle guide for us on one day and this was a great way to see more of Sicily.
We hired our car and bikes via Martjin and this made the whole process of arriving in Sicily so much easier so I would recommend this. We found that this part of the Island seemed not to be so touristy which we liked as it felt real and not like a commercial tourist resort.
Would definitely recommend staying here and thanks Martjin and Laura for making us feel welcome.

“In May we spent nine days in Sicily. We were guests in the Borgo delle Olive in the Biancolila apartment. We stayed there with our two children Isabel (7) and Jasper (3). At the same time they were more Dutch couples with young children in the Borgo. Thanks to the kids we made friends with everyone else very fast. At the end of the afternoon when everyone had done his own program, we all met near the pool.
For the kids the pizza workshop was the highlight of the week. Soon we will try and make our own pizzas in Holland using the recipe we’ve got during the workshop.
We want to thank you for the wonderful week and for helping us with the recovery of our suitcase that was lost during our stopover in Rome! Your personal attention and advice during this week was for us really the icing on the cake!
Greetings and hope to see you again,
Arjen, Esther and the children”
“Barely a week back in the Netherlands and already homesick .. We had a wonderful holiday in the Borgo dello Olive. Beautiful pool, beautiful apartments and a very family friendly courtyard in the Borgo where we could enjoy a glass of wine..
Also Balestrate is a nice authentic place, not overrun by mass tourism. We give this property an A+.”
“Buona sera Laura,
Thanks for the wonderful stay in Sicily. It certainly tasted like more. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thanks to your good service. We will definitely recommend it to friends and acquaintances here in the Netherlands. Thanks again!

“Hello Laura and Marijn,
We’re back home after four fantastic days in Sicily. Everything went well and our stay at the Borgo delle Olive was great. We’ve generally followed the program of which everyone loved the day in Palermo, but the highlight was the cooking class with Philippe. We have not filled in the questionnaire. We therefore take this opportunity to thank very much for your contribution to the success of our anniversary weekend.
It was a big A+! … And we’ll spread the word..
Fino alla prossima volta,
Irene and Kirstin”
“Dear Laura and Martijn,
This year we decided to go on a holiday in the school holiday period in May with our children of 3 and 5 years old. Soon we decided on Sicily and through your website and your quick responses we decided to stay in the Borgo delle Olive. When we arrived, we were very impressed with the Borgo. Especially our amazing bedroom suite was great.
For our children, the holiday was absolutely great. Lisa still doesn’t understand why people want to live in the Netherlands, because “Sicily is so much better…”. Of course the pool was a big hit. The temperatures between 25 and 30 degrees were really nice.
We have made many trips and enjoyed the diversity of the island. Highlights were definitely the nature reserve, visiting Segesta, but also the beach of San Vito lo Capo, everything was great. In addition, we will certainly remember the pizza workshop!
For us it’s clear that we will definitely go back again to this beautiful island. We only hope that we can find such a nice location and good organization.
Thank you for everything,
Richard, Daniëlle, Lisa & Jasper”
