The narrow lanes of Casbah are plenty of bars and restaurants, and they become very crowded during summer.

I stayed at Simone's apt just for one night before starting a tour. I wanted to be central and my wish was granted, the apt was right in the middle of the Casbar district right next to the church of St Francesco (which is definitely worth a visit). Parking was fairly easy just by the fishing boats, about 4 min walk. The apt was very well equipped and cosy, comfortable bed etc. I would definitely return, next time with a friend and for longer. Thanks Simone

The place is perfectly located in a central part of the town, in a very authentic Arab quarter. Apartment was very clean and comfortable. Would definitely recommend.

The communication with Simone was very easy, we never met her but her brother helped us with the check-in, he's very nice and gave us nice Tipps. The district is great, you could feel like in a little village in Tunesia, and it shows a nice example of peaceful cohabitation between old Italian families and tunesian families. We enjoyed the little artsy streets and the closeness to the center and the port. The place is a bit dark and a bit noisy (you hear the neigbours) but very clean and the neigbours are extremely nice. All in all a pleasant experience!

We had a wonderful stay at Simone's in a beautiful location. The apartment is quite spacious, hot water, and at a lovely location in the kasbah within walking distance to the plazas and restaurants.

We stayed in Mazara for 1 night. We didn't meet Simone but the neighbour greeted us and checked us in. She was very friendly and helpful. The property is in the Kasbah area, perfect for exploring the small town.

After more than 2 years my dream has become true as I finished to renew two apartments in the city centre of Mazara del Vallo and started this small family business. I decided to name them Cous Cous and Tagine. I think these names match perfectly with the environment and, most of all, reflect my personality! Nevertheless, this is actually a little bit more than just a business. I am in love with Sicily, my home land, even if I had to leave it long ago for work reasons. I have feeling that people around the world are not aware of how beautiful this land is. This is my way to try making people discover my home land! All friends of mine who came to visit Mazara del Vallo remained surprised and fascinated. I am sure you will be too.

My parents help me with running this business. All the guests we have had so far ended up becoming friends. Many of them were invited to my family place for a real Sicilian dinner and they still send us greetings for Christmas. Very likely you will also try my mum cousine!
