The nearest international airport is Palermo - Falcone Borsellino - 110 kilometres from Mazara del Vallo.
It is an easy drive along the motorway that goes direct to Mazara del Vallo and takes about an hour. There is very little traffic. A car is a must for a holiday at Villa Santa Maria. The major car hire firms such as Hertz and Avis are represented at the airport.
Ryanair flies direct from Stansted and Luton to Palermo and Trapani. Easyjet flies direct to Palermo in summer and Alitalia flies to Palermo throughout the year, with a change of flights in Rome or Milan. The Birgi airport of Trapani is less than an hour's drive from Santa Maria.
There are ferry and hovercraft services from Naples to Palermo and a ferry also from Genoa.
If you would like to know more about the history behind Santa Maria and the family who lived there, you can read Caroline’s book “Casa Nostra, A Home in Sicily”. Published by Harper Collins in the US in 2007, it can be ordered on Amazon and many other websites online. Copies are also available for sale in both villas.
