We stayed one night at casa rufino because it was a short and easy drive from the airport, but also close to the coast. The room was excellent with a simple modern decor.

Paola and Giuseppe lead with dedication her beautiful hotel, which is designed more like a large villa. Always friendly and helpful they are at the guests help and advice available. My room was spacious, clean and functional. The varied breakfast for me was a highlight every day fresh and mostly local produce. Absolute recommendation for a stay in Balestrate!

Casa Ruffino B&B is the perfect spot to rest and serve as staging area for all trips to the Western region of Sicily. The hosts, Giuseppe and Paola, welcome you as family. The accommodations are comfortable and clean with this beautiful home with hardwood floors turned into B&B. No elevator, but stairs are easy. A rental car is best, to...

Once again, Giuseppe cannot be faulted at Casa Ruffino! The bedrooms are wonderful and the breakfast is the very, very best that you could hope for, with fresh fruits, tomatoes, cheeses, charcuterie, kiwi juice, homemade jams and the most delicious crema and pistachio "cornetti" - Giuseppe even took us to his local bakers after breakfast so that we could stock...

Stayed here in late November 2015. A bit difficult to see the sign as it is on a brass plaque on the wall. Just look for the chicken restaurant, the B&B is a few doors in advance. We turned down a side street and found a place to park. By the time we got the bags out the owner had...

It feels more like you're a guest at a good friend of yours. Wonderful service by the owner who is very proud of his and his wifes place. Wonderful breakfast with locally produced food. Luxurious in every aspect.

Good location, nice and clean room, the best breakfast (only local products). Stayed there just for one night before taking the flight from Palermo. Balestrate has a very beautiful beach, so you can relax or you can go explore Palermo, San vito lo Capo, Erice, Marsala, ...

We received a very warm welcome to a B and B which has its own special character. The rooms were distinctive and clean. We were treated as friends of the owners and taken to the festival on that evening. The breakfast was good and we were given cheese made that morning in the local area.

“Ask for the Master Suite. It faces the main street where locals promenade so you can watch all the activity. It is a quiet room with the windows and shutters closed. Plus it is a gorgeous room!”
