“Buongiorno Laura e Martijn!
It took a while to write something for your guestbook, but we want to you to know that we had a wonderful holiday in Sicily!
We enjoyed the beautiful house and the street where we “lived”! The holiday home was cozy and homely furnished and we cooked in the kitchen more than we planned to. With all the delicious fresh vegetables and pasta, you will automatically become a kitchen expert!
The girls have had a great time playing on the stairs, together with our neighbor’s granddaughters. Children make friends no matter what language they speak. Thanks to the neighbors, who could speak English and French, we felt at home and that was really special!
The town Castellammare del Golfo was very cozy, especially during the “Madonna” festivities with wonderful fireworks! We were one of the few foreign tourists. The atmosphere in the town was really not made for large amounts of tourists. That gave us the feeling that we were not on vacation but that we were living in another country!
With two small children (1 and 5 years old) we did not do much, but what we did was fun! We spent a day in Erice, where the temperature was very pleasant (about 27 degrees Celsius), then drove to San Vito lo Capo, which had a beautiful beach, but full of Italian tourists. Another day we spent in Parlermo, where we visited fun marketplaces and saw beautiful buildings. We did some shopping in Castellammare and Alcamo and drank delicious ice coffee.
We spent a lot of time on the beach. By recommendation of our neighbors, we found a beautiful quiet beach between Alcamo Marina and Balestrate. Because there was a small lido (Lido Greg) the beach was cleaned every day and it was wonderfully peaceful, with all conveniences, such as food, drinks, showers and toilets.
Overall a great holiday! Choosing a photo for your guest book was a difficult task, since our street was a very photogenic one, not to mention the rest of our trips (we made almost 1000 pictures!).
Thanks for all the tips and information and the real personal touch!
