Flew into Palermo; straightforward drive to Cala dell'Arena through some lovely countryside and farmland (would advise rental of a car @ airport as public transport to Trapani may be variable).
Hotel office staff spoke English (and applauded my poor attempts at Italian)- thank you Ilya & Vincento- were also able to recommend restaurants nearby and in San Vito lo Capo.
Short driven to San Vito, or nearer, Castelluzo for food to cook in the apartment (self-catering though breakfast is available; we had it once- it was okay). Take mosquito repellent at this time of year!
The hotel setting was stunning; laid out like an old village with stone paving and some very old (and some newer) pieces of antiquity. Lush with trees, flowers, cacti, etc (late May / early June). Also had the EXCELLENT pool all to ourselves the whole time we were there.
Basic apartment interiors could use updating but very functional. No TV (which we preferred); wifi access only in the reception area. Ate many of our meals on the lovely patio.
Would recommend nearby Pocho for a delicious set meal using local seafood & produce, and fantastic sunset (though service was slow on Saturday night- not too surprising).
Do not miss the nearby nature reserve, Zingaro: a cave, some small museums dedicated to local life, lots of wild artichoke and other flowers, plants & trees, and hidden beaches- wow.
We loved it.
Stayed 3 nights in March which is out of season but staff could not be more accommodating. Continental breakfast. Room cleaned & bed made every day. Even put heating on so room was warm when got back in eve
Very beautiful quiet area, close to the sandy beach. There were 4 adults of us, we booked one bedroom with the sofa-bed in the kitchen (budget option) but instead of that we got the two bedroom residence! :) That was so lovely surprise for us. Thank You!
We had a fantastic stay here, and found this apartment great value for money (spacious, clean, easy parking, close to the beach). When we arrived there was a small mix up with the booking system (no fault of the owner) and Francesco spent time to sort everything out for us with the booking agent directly and got the matter resolved very quickly. Very satisfied and thank you to Francesco.
Hotel Tannure was a perfect choice for a relaxing stay in San Vito Lo Capo - only a few minutes from the beach. Staff were friendly and welcoming, the room was comfortable and nicely decorated in Mediteranean style. We'd love to go back!
We have been to Calamancina many times and we plan to return. It is in close walking distance to the beach and the little town of San Vito. It is perfect for families with children. There is also entertainment for children.
