“Lovely house but awful location”
Reviewed October 13, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

person found this review helpful

This was a real shame because the house is lovely and very well equipped.

Unfortunately it is situated adjacent to and over a very noisy bar - our bedroom directly overlooked the courtyard area of the bar where people sat outside and drank until about 2 am - every day with the exception of Sunday.
The second bedroom, situated at the front of the house, was also adjacent to the stairs that descended to the bar and then further to the harbour - therefore it was a meeting point for people descending to the bar or sitting on the steps down to it,

There was absolutely no escape from the music and the noise with the result that we left half way through the holiday in desperate search of a good night's sleep and a respite from the music which sometimes started at 4pm.
We tried to discuss this with the bar owner who was unsympathetic. Whilst we understand that he has a business to run, subsequently the tourist information office and local restaurants confirmed to us that this was a problem bar.
With only 7 days holiday we weren't in the mood to put up with this any longer.
Our local hostess Roseanna was absolutely mortified on our behalf -to the point that she bought us pastries as an apology.
The owner's attitude was less than helpful. She emailed us several times in a quite belligerent manner asking why we had not given her the opportunity to resolve matters and that she understood we had jus decided to move on and that there was not a problem.
This was so obviously about her concern that we would ask for a refund that it was laughable. We didn't ask for a refund nor was anything offered.
However, the property should have been advertised as being in a lively neighbourhood or attractive to those who like to party - it really felt like Ibiza every night.
If that's your thing
,then great -this would be the house for you but not if you want a relaxing holiday.

Liebe Alison,
wie wir es such schon Ihnen persönlich geschrieben haben, wäre es sicherlich der bessere Weg gewesen uns über die Probleme zu informieren. Das ist leider erst nach dem Urlaub geschehen. Wir hätten Ihnen ein anderes, ruhigeres Haus anbieten können ohne Mehrkosten, das gehört zum Service unserer Firma.
Zur Lärmbelästigung möchte ich sagen, dass die Bar erst im Juli eröffnet hat, wie ich jetzt erfahren haben. Leider wurden wir darüber nicht informiert, sonst hätten wir das selbstverständlich in der Beschreibung vermerkt. Alle Buchungen vor dem Juli hatten nämlich auch keine Lärmprobleme. Dennoch fand ich es etwas merkwürdig, dass Sie der Besitzerin am Dienstagmorgen geschrieben haben, dass alles toll ist, um dann am Mittwoch die Koffer zu packen, ohne uns eien Nachricht über Ihre Probleme zu schicken. Ich bin erst am Mittwochnachmittag von der Besitzerin selbst informiert worden. Diese sagte mir, dass Sie auch kein Interesse daran hätten, dass Sie noch mal interveniert und dass Sie auch kein Geld zurück wollten. Es ist sehr schade, dass Sie uns nicht die Möglichkeit gegeben haben, eine gute Lösung zu finden zumal ich auch Unterkünfte in Trapani habe, wo Sie dann ja lieber hinwollten.
Natürlich ist es im Zentrum von Castellammare lauter. Wer gerne fußläufig zu allem wohnen möchte, hat leider immer mit einem gewissen Geräuschpegel zu rechnen.

Nice flat with a fabulous outside area, in the center of a cute fishing village.
Perfect for a family with little children.

“Lovely terrace with lovely views”
Reviewed August 18, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

A very nice apartment with a fabulous outside area. Ideal for Al-fresco dining.
Perfect if you are travelling with children as the main street with the bars and restaurants is literally on your door step.

We hired a car as the main beach is not within walking distance and we also liked to travel to other beaches in the area. Whilst there is no parking outside the house, it was no problem to park in the nearby site roads ca. 5 - 10 minutes away for free. The apartment is in a pedestrian only area, however on the day of arrival, the owner picked us up from a nearby bar and we follow him to the apartment. We were ok to unload our luggage before we had to park the car somewhere else. We did the same on our last day to load the car again.

Castellammare is a beautiful, little but lively town. I can fully recommend a visit here.

The owners as well as Petra were lovely. Everything was very well organise right from when we booked.
