Hotel Alceste


Selinunte is defined by many as Europe’s largest archaeological park, an extraordinary Ancient Greek city located in a stupendous position, approximately 30m above sea level. The Selinunte province is an enchanting uncontaminated area situated right by the archaeological park, and bordered by the blue waters of the Mediterranean. Walk slowly through the ruins of temples, soaring columns and long paths of the semi-desertified area, and you’ll find yourself facing the sea at one of the most beautiful beaches of Marinella di Selinunte, part of the Municipality of Castelvetrano.

The sandy coastline is situated exactly between the mouth of the River Belice and the Port of Marinella. Behind it rises the large archaeological complex of Selinunte, composed of the Acropolis, the Eastern Hill, the plains of Contrada Manuzza, the sanctuary of Malophoros in the Gaggera area and two Necropoles (Manicalunga and Galera Bagliazzo).

In the past, Marinella di Selinunte played a central role in the Ancient Greek world; today it is a small fishing town and holiday location, known for the uncontaminated nature of its beaches and the crystal clear sea furrowed by small traditional boats. The town centre extends right along the sandy coast, located in the South-Eastern part of the province of Trapani.

This small strip of Sicily is characterised by its seafaring traditions, beach culture, slow pace of life, excellent Mediterranean cuisine and the daily fish market held in Piazza Empedocle from 7am onwards.  

We advise all tourists to take a day trip to see the spectacular nearby villages such as: Le Cave di Cusa, Castelvetrano, Gibellina, Menfi, Mazara del Vallo, Marsala, Erice, Segesta, Mothia Island, the Aegate Islands, Trapani, Alcamo, Monreale, Custonaci, Agrigento, Sciacca, Palermo, Castellammare del Golfo, San Vito Lo Capo and the Zingaro nature reserve.

"Ho trascorso otto giorni ad agosto di quest'anno in completo relax e riposo. Sono stata circondata da un'ambiente che mi ha fatto sentire come in famiglia. Il mangiare di ottima qualità e ben cucinato. Mi riprometto di tornare non appena possibile."

Marina C

"Sono stata dirottata su questo albergo per indisponibilità della struttura che avevo prenotato: sono stati 2 giorni piacevolissimi! Estremamente cortesi e disponibili la signora Catena e tutto lo staff, stanza silenziosa, pulitissima e confortevole, colazione buona ma senza nulla di salato ma per affrontare una giornata al mare è perfetta"
