The
Experience

A clever restoration has turned this rather unprepossessing semi-detached barn into a stylish, comfy space. You’re just off the busy main road but you’ll be delighted to find this sandstone and cement barn with pantile roof and even happier once you’ve stepped into its cool high-raftered interior. The centre of the barn is a large open-plan living/dining room with a contemporary feel: neutral coloured sofas in front of a huge wood-burner, interesting family pieces, polished concrete stairs. At one end a wide balcony is reached by an asymmetrical staircase, at the other a mezzanine leads out to a terrace with a hot outdoor shower. The five simple, smallish bedrooms are dotted about (two doubles on the ground floor, two doubles on the mezzanine with en suite loos and a triple on the open balcony); there’s one shower room downstairs. The kitchen is a generous space for preparing feasts for all the gang; eat outside so you can lap up views over the pool to olive groves and mountains. You’re close to Palermo, some fab beaches and the Egadi Islands.

Reviews

We spent a very nice time at Casa Alla Falconeria. The House is amazing. The swimming pool is fantastic and our guests very helpful and charming. They welcomed us with fruits, vegetables, wine and specialities. We spent a very nice week there with our family and friends.

Sophie, Paris

This is marvellous place where everything has been designed around rest, calm and beauty. Everything is comfortable and clean, and the hosts are charming and welcoming. We had everything we need and we were charmed by the beauty of the place. The sea and the very beautiful sand beaches, as well as Palermo and its surroundings are very easy to access from the house. Thanks again to Daniela and Francesco for their very clear explanations and for their time. This magnificent place has a lot of character and soul!

Nathalie, Giou de mamou

Falconeria is a thoughtfully designed, comfortable place for three couples to share, with loads of space both indoors and out. The kitchen works well, and the living area is both beautiful and airy. The space is very well furnished with many places in which to sit and relax, both inside and outside. The pool is a good size for keen swimmers. It is easy to access the coast and some key Sicilian sites such as Segesta, and the airport is a very easy 20 mins or so drive away. Our hosts were delightful, generous (providing a welcoming basket of food), and were very responsive.

My friends and I spent a wonderful moment in la Casa Falconeria. Daniela and her husband have been extremely nice and gave us many suggestions of places to visit and restaurants around this charming house. The location of the house is also very convenient to explore Palermo and Western Sicily - we would definitely recommend!

Erwan, Paris

WOW! What a place! A beautiful, comfortable and very stylish home with the warmest of welcomes from Daniela on arrival. We really couldn't have asked for a more dreamy place to stay. We spent breakfasts by the pool, with fresh mandarins to pick from the trees, were out during the days for stunning local walks, swims, hot spring baths and cliff climbing, and dined out under the stars cooking on the outdoor grill in the evenings, with the smell of fresh herbs and lemons in the air. The woodburner kept us all cosy in the cooler April nights. We all slept well and had a super time. Wonderful.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Daniela Lombardo

  • We are 6 to 10 km from the friendly towns of Partinico, Balestrate, Alcamo and Castellammare del Golfo, in the heart of Western Sicily, strategically located close to several centres of cultural and natural interest.
  • The greek temple and amphiteatre of Segesta, the medieval Erice, Mozia, Marsala, the salt lakes of Trapani, the famous Arab-Norman itinerary (UNESCO World Heritage Site) of Monreale and Palermo (2018 capital of culture) are 40-50 minutes drive.
  • Explore the beautiful coastline just 15 minutes away. Swim and relax in the nearby sandy beaches from Balestrate to Castellammare del Golfo or enjoy diving and snorkelling in crystal clear water of Faraglioni of Scopello or the Zingaro Nature Reserve.
  • During your stay you must take a daily trip to the Egadi islands, Favignana with its wonderful bays, the small Levanzo and the wild Marettimo. Trapani harbour, for overcrafts leading to Egadi, is only 1 hour drive.
  • Relax by the 11,5 x 4.50 swimming pool in the shade of ancient olive trees, surrounded by a nice sicilian garden and a small refreshing pine forest. Our guests will receive a welcome gift upon arrival.
  • In the area there are plenty of restaurants, ranging from “trattoria” to good seafood restaurants in Castellammare del Golfo and Michelin-starred restaurants in the nearby Terrasini and Palermo. The area also produces excellent wines and olive oils.
