In the stunning setting provided by the Golfo di Castellammare, between Trapani and Palermo, in one of the most gorgeous spots of western Sicily, Hotel La Battigia can be found on the beautiful gold sand beach that spreads from Castellammare del Golfo all the way to Alcamo Marina. The hotel is the only one among the 4-star hotels in Castellammare del Golfo and Alcamo Marina to benefit from such a great position right on the beach. This little paradise is the perfect choice for those who love a vacation combining the sea, entertainment and culture.
The beach and the sea between Castellammare del Golfo and Alcamo Marina are truly beautiful with the soft and verdant hills in the background, with their small and very old history towns and vineyards of Bianco d'Alcamo, the prestigious DOC wine. From the hotel, and a few minutes car ride, you can easily reach Castellammare del Golfo, Alcamo, Scopello, the Natural Reserves of "Bosco d'Alcamo" and "Lo Zingaro" and the archaeological area of Segesta.

Founded in 828 by the Arab commander al-Kamuk it later became a Norman city during the Middle Ages. This is a very pretty town located only a few minutes from Hotel La Battigia, amid hills and filled with monuments and works of art.

Paolo e Bartolomeo.

A very small town around the court of an ancient feudal hold and sloping down to the sea where you will find a historical tonnara (tuna fish factory) and where you can admire the famous Faraglioni (rock formations). This coast which is made up of small bays and coves nestled between the turquoise sea and the very white sandy beaches is truly stunning!
