If you like staying in an agriturismo, you will love here. It was without doubt the most interesting place we stayed in in Sicily. Slightly quirky, but a welcoming atmosphere, absolutely superb food if you are just prepared to go with their suggestions. Our room was so comfortable, even if the shower had it's own built in light display. The... More

A delightful stay, great adventure & highly recommended. We received a very warm welcome at this working farm with coffee & cake (& a guitarist played & sang for us) even though our hostess was in the middle of preparing for the arrival of a large party who were coming to learn how to make & then eat pizza, couscous...

I did not stay at Fontanasalsa but our Gate 1 tour stopped there for an afternoon luncheon. Were we ever surprised by the warm welcome we received. They treated us like we were family and serenaded us with a guitar/singer who played wonderful Italian music.The food they served us was out of this world! It was served family style and... More

This was a charming place to stay, a working olive farm built round the original courtyard. A cold drink on arrival was very welcome for two weary cyclists, as was a swim in the pool amongst the orange grove, and later there was a fantastic dinner outside underneath an ancient vine. Service was always friendly and nothing was too much... More

Do not miss this little spot in the middle of Sicily's heart. A warm welcome, a wonderful smile and fantastic food served just below the grapes. We couldn't get enough but had to catch the damn plane. Thank you Colette for your way of hosting us. That´s Amore! We will come back!

To say this s the worst place we have ever stayed is an understatement. The place is filthy from the courtyard to the rooms. The woman who runs the place is a witch. She speaks English, quite well, but that's where it stops. The food was ok, dinner is better than breakfast. Don't waste your money here folks, there are... More

Fontanasalsa is a picturesque, working olive farm some ten minutes drive from Trapani Airport. The main courtyard retains its original paving stones leaving a wonderfully authentic, peaceful place to stay. A stroll around the surrounding orange and olive groves will quickly relax any stresses! Perhaps the key feature is the welcome that you are given. Fontanasalsa is run by Colette... More

We arrived by bike, exhausted. We were made so welcome and the food was absolutely delightful. The rooms were good, and the weather was cold but we had excellent heating / clothe drying facilities in the room. You are staying on a working olive farm and I loved this so much more than your standard 4 star hotel. A great... More

This agriturismo is a great base to explore Western Sicily. Within easy driving distance from Trapani, Erice, Marsala and salt mills. The place itself is in the deep countryside. Very decent rooms, decent food. Olive oil is fantastic.

While on a tour of Sicily we stopped at Baglio Fontanasalsa. At first, its looks are deceiving. However, upon enjoying our 5-6 course meal I can safely say it was the highlight of my vacation to Sicily! You Simply cannot go wrong here! Please try the Olive Oil Gelato! It was make your taste buds melt with pleasure!
