“Just superb!!”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

This villa is located in the beautiful sicilian countryside just a short drive from the city centre. It is surrounded by vineyards, has a totally relaxed atmosphere & the hosts make it a point that you feel at home. Breakfast is very good, the room was always fresh & clean & the swimming pool is sooo nice & refreshing. The hosts also recommended nice places & interesting excursions.

The cherry on the cake on our stay was the last night, where the hosts prepared a local meal made up of their own fresh ingredients in their stone oven. This consisted of freshly baked bread, olive oil, pizza, sausages, spare ribs & baked potatoes all to die for. Obviously, this was accompanied by their very own excellent wine. Their motto for such an occasion is 'Eat & drink as much as you like!'

My wife & I enjoyed our stay very much & we highly recommend this B&B both for value of money & also for the relaxed & friendly atmosphere.

We'll certainly be back!!!

Tanti saluti da Malta

The villa is located a short drive from the city centre of Mazara del Vallo, which was perfect for us as we wanted a private non commercial place away from the buzzing trafic. It is surrounded by vineyards, has a relaxing feel and some interesting history behind it. The rooms are very clean, tended to daily and towels changed daily as well. The hosts are lovely and helpful, happy to recommend places to eat and visit. We enjoyed our stay at Villa Altair, we highly recommend it and will return there one day.

Room Tip: Good, basic, clean rooms. A/C in all of them

The hostel is located in a recently (very stylish) renovated farm and has a friendly, positive atmosphere. Quiet, but also very near to the main roads and the city center of Marzala del Vallo. Breakfast was perfect and we recommand the swimmingpool! We enjoyed our stay very much and will certainly will stay here again!

I was in Villa Altair during a week . From there I've discovered all the region of Trapani with the coast, the islands,.... .
The house was very well restructred conseving the rural part but with all the modern facilities ( air continionig, wifi...) . The rom was large, clean and comfortable The owners explain me lots of things about the region and Sicily so it was very interesting at the same time. The wine and food are delicious!
