Artflat 19 Marsala - Sicily - Italy Sea Art & Food
Marsala, Sicily, Italy
Additional Location Information
What's in a name? The inclination to identify Marsala's name with the wine produced there is understandable, but wines are usually named for places, not vice versa. This city on Sicily's western coast was founded by Carthaginians, following the destruction of the nearby settlement on the island of Mozia (Mothia) by the Syracusans.
The Romans called it Lilybaeum.
Sicily's wine country lies to the east.The region was always known for its fine grapes, but it was the Englishman, John Woodhouse, who introduced the fortified wine business here in 1796, having already developed a similar product (Port wine) in Portugal. The early years of the nineteenth century saw the arrival of thousands of British troops in Sicily to bolster the armies of the King Ferdinando I during his exile from Naples in view of the Napoleonic occupation of the Italian mainland. Many were based at Marsala. This experience was more than sufficient to encourage other firms to follow Woodhouse's example. Ingham, Good and Whitaker had soon founded wine businesses of their own. The Florio family set up a firm in 1831. The grape-growing region extends westward toward Salemi, Segesta and Sciacca. This is Italy's largest contiguous viticultural region, and also one of the largest such areas in Europe.

What Past Guests Are Saying
Perfect for a Marsala stay
Came for a week in May 2012, with my husband and our 2 year old.
The Google Maps street view of the flat made me hesitate, but I rang my uncle who lives in Marsala and he assured me it was a good area. He was right- it's just an unfortunate street view shot. I didn't notice any rubbish or graffiti nearby, and in fact, the location is wonderful.
The flat itself is nice, with ample furnishings. There is even a courtyard with chairs and a table. The beds were comfortable- a plus!- and there was plenty of hot water. I was pleasantly surprised that each bedroom and the main room has its own air con unit with independent controls. It wasn't very hot when we were there, but Marsala can be noisy so I was grateful to have the option to shut the windows and turn on the air con.
Although nothing about the flat is specifically for families, we found it perfect for our stay. The courtyard was great for letting our daughter play while we had an evening glass of wine. And just a few steps away on Via Garibaldi there was a gelateria which my daughter loved. Continuing along Via Scipione L'Africano and turning right onto Lungomare Boeo there is a kids' playground with mini golf and go carts.
Two places near the flat worth visiting (without kids) are wine bar La Sirena Ubriaca, which has a fun, personable owner, and restaurant Divino Rosso, which has the most delicious food and is rightfully popular with the locals.
We enjoyed our stay at the flat, and the staff member who met us was friendly and informative. I recommend staying here, and we will book it again for our next visit to Marsala.
perfect place for a long and plesant summer holiday
We have rented the apartment using the web, recommended by some friends. We were a family of 4 (two sons aged 6 and 8). Simply fantastic. After a warm welcome, we have been invited to visit the local fish market and a wine bar, where we found a present for us: a bottle of Marsala wine. Thank to the people we met in the streets, we have visited the most important local wine makers. Then, the sea, the beaches the restaurants (..again the wines). Moreover museums and churches. Walks along the streets. Then sun. Then swimming and fishing and sailing. What else?
A real holiday time.
