We've just returned from 8 nights at the Cala dell'arena B&B.

The B&B/Apartments are situated amongst beautiful grounds with views of the sea and... More

We stayed during the 3rd week in June, after spending our first week in the east of Sicily. Cala dell'Arena is set on a picturesque hill side in a quite location, less than a 10 minute drive away from San Vito De Capo beach. The long stony driveway into Cala dell'Arena’s court yard and the grounds it occupies are amazing.... More

An easy 70 minute drive from Palermo airport, follow the signs to Trapani and then to San Vito Lo Capo, it's the left turn before Macari. 3 supermarkets 10 minute drive away. The place is on the mountain side, 300 meters from the beach, with a perfect Sea view. Wifi in the entire place and friendly staff. You can get... More

We stayed for a week off season. Everything would have been perfect (pool, cleaniness, view, staff) if the furnishings had not been so sparse, especially when you stay with a family and actually do intend to use the kitchen equipment in particular. For the rest, highly recommendable.

Though a 5min drive outside San Vito Lo Capo's center, the views and accommodations made it well worthwhile. Friendly staff, and incredible pool, and just the rustic feel you want. Rooms weren't overwhelming, but the views from them were. Had a great time, and would recommend
