In Appartamento Biancolilla
Does each apartment have its own terrace?

No, the borgo has a communal courtyard with outdoor furniture.

Is there a restaurant in the borgo?

Unfortunately, the borgo doesn’t have it’s own restaurant, but in the summer period a dinner buffet is offered once a week (more on this later on this page).

Is the borgo located within walking distance of the beach or restaurants?

No, the borgo is a 10-minute drive from the sandy beach of Balestrate and a 10-minute drive from various restaurants. It’s not possible to walk to the beach or the restaurants.

I understand that there are wedding receptions at the borgo, is that right?

A location has been created behind the borgo, a good distance from the apartments (100 meters), where weddings are held quite frequently, particularly in the summer period. In the summer, weddings are also held at the swimming pool of the borgo. On these evenings, the swimming pool will close at 6:30 pm instead of at 8:30 pm. If a wedding is / weddings are being held by the pool during your stay, you will be offered one dinner buffet per week.

On what dates are weddings held by the pool?

May: 9
June: 6, 10, 12, 13, 20, 26 and 27
July: 3, 4, 11, 15, 18, 20, 24, 25 and 29
August: 25
September: 3, 4, 5, 11, 12, 15, 18 and 19

Do the weddings cause a noise nuisance?

When a wedding is being celebrated by the pool, you can hear the music in the courtyard. Much less is audible of the weddings in the new zone. Whether there will always be nuisance is difficult to say: some guests find the weddings enjoyable, while others might be bothered by the noise/music. If you are looking for absolute silence, then the Borgo delle Olive is not the right location for you.

Keep in mind that weddings are celebrated at almost every comparable location in Sicily, but this is often not indicated on their website. Therefore, if you are looking for an alternative to the borgo, always ask if, and if so, when, weddings take place.
