Castellammare del Golfo is a small ancient coastal town that has preserved the characteristic charm of a fishing village. Already the name "Castellammare" indicates that there is a fortress directly at the sea. Its origin dates back to the time of the Arab conquest. "Del Golfo" means that the town nestles against a bay. The ancient roots and the geographical location make it a popular, but not yet overrun holiday destination in the province of Trapani. The old town with its winding alleyways and many stairs is best explored on foot. Here there are still authentic "botteghe", old-established small shops, where all kinds of goods are offered: Fruits and vegetables, food, shoes, household goods, tools, souvenirs and much more.
At the harbor promenade, where the colorful fishing boats lay, you can not only buy the fresh fish, but also sit in one of the cozy restaurants to savor the excellent Sicilian cuisine.
By the way, the Arab influence can also be discovered in many typical dishes. Cous cous can be found on every menu and often chickpeas, raisins and pine nuts are among the classic ingredients of many regional dishes.
The location is ideal for excursions to Erice, Segesta, Monreale, Trapani, San Vito lo Capo, Scopello and the nature reserve Parco dello Zingaro. In the summer you can enjoy the sun on the little town beach, which is surrounded by a high fortress wall, or you go by car to the long sandy beaches on the northern outskirts.
In the cooler seasons you can relax in the nearby thermal baths Terme Segestane in the 38°C warm water.
If you like to get to know the country and the people, you will enjoy your holiday in this small town. The Castellammaresi are very hospitable and always gladly to pass insider tips and life-signs to the visitors of their city.

Wir hatten Ihre Homepage empfohlen bekommmen und daraufhin spontan beschlossen, diesen Oktober nach Sizilien zu reisen- und wir sind insgesamt äußerst positiv überrascht worden! Die Anreise war mühsam, da wir erst nachts gegen 2 Uhr in Castellamare ankamen- aber dafür sind wir von unserem Vermieter durch einen äußerst warmherzigen Empfang zu wahrlich später Stunde entschädigt worden. Die Wohnung ist wirklich schön und sehr liebevoll eingerichtet(auch wenn uns an manchen Abenden ein bequemer Sessel oder ein Sofa gefehlt hat), und die Lage zentral aber dennoch ruhig, da die Zimmer alle nach hinten raus gingen. Das Wetter und die Strände der Umgebung waren perfekt zum Schwimmen, aber auch für Ausflüge in die interessante Umgebung war unser Urlaub ausgezeichnet geeignet. Wir würden unsere Unterkunft jederzeit weiterempfehlen, würden aber bei unserem nächsten Aufenthalt eher den Osten der Insel bereisen, um auch diesen Teil zu erkunden. Für Ausflüge zum Ätna beispielsweise ist die Insel dann einfach zu weitläufig... Herzlichen Dank Familie Lohschelder
