Unfortunately, we were under the impression that this place was a hotel and not a bed and breakfast. Antonio & Delfina are exceedingly nice and do try very hard to sort out problems with he room etc. Antonio is a larger than life character, akin to a benevolent Basil Fawlty, that will cheer your day up with his stories of the Far East, where he spent 44 years. Delfina is adorable with her deep laugh and bright eyes that light up the day. Michaela, who prepares breakfast, is exceedingly nice and efficient. Breakfast is taken in a covered part of the back garden. The rooms are well appointed, but one in particular had a strong smell of sewage that apparently is a problem across Sicily. Antonio, after two days of struggling with the problem decided to move us to another room which was much more acceptable and bigger too. We initially had a fridge in the room but that broke down and the ever resourceful Delfina allowed us to keep stuff in a fridge next to the breakfast room. The supply of hot water varies, to the extent that one day we only had cold water, for which we were admonished by Antonio for not calling him to fix the problem. By this stage, we just could not face making any more complaints. There is also a splash pool, which we did not use.
We found that the cost of staying at this B&B was too steep for what was on offer. The B&B has no laundry, restaurant or snack facilities (no vending machine) with the nearest restaurant in Trapani that has a serious parking problem. There is a small café down the road from the Villa but that only serves sandwiches, ice creams and snacks.
The trouble with this place is that it is neither fish nor fowl. It's priced in the range of a a good 4 star hotel but does not offer the services of a hotel. The home baked pastries and cakes, as well as the fruit picked from their garden, and the home made jam are all good but in our judgment do not justify the price paid. Is this another unintended effect of Brexit and the 30% devaluation against the euro?

Room tip: The B&B has three rooms. Watch out for the one nearest to the main entrance as this suffers from a serious sewage smell.
Date of stay: August 2017

Excellent stay at Villa Delphina. Owners..... Delphina and Antonio treated us like family. Very relaxed ambience and peaceful atmosphere. Breakfast was also great. Highly recommended especially for guests with their own transport

We stayed 3 nights at the end of our roadtrip. We could not have wished for a better place to stay. Close to everything, but not in the city so you need to have a car. Nice breakfast. Owners are very nice. They speak limited english, but Antonio was very eager to help with planning our day trips.

Antonio and Delfina treated my wife and I as if we were family. Great location to use as a base to tour the western part of Sicily. They treated us with a bottle of wine and a very nice book with great pictures of all of the interesting places to see. Antonio got us a reservation at a restaurant Saturday night that was close to the B&B ( 2.7 miles ) that was completely booked but he got us in. They were a joy to visit with and like I said they treated us as if we were part of the family.
