Casa Ruffino is a delightful bed & breakfast situated in the centre of Balestrate, a small sea side town, not far from Palermo, famous for its long sandy beaches and crystal clear sea. This luxurious bed & breakfast occupies part of the 19th century Palazzo Ruffino, a supremely elegant Sicilian residence the graceful interiors of which contain valuable items of antique furniture, exquisite stuccoes, and attractive "graniglia" floor tiles in various hues. From the moment they pass through the entrance doors of Casa Ruffino, the warm hospitality and courteous attention offered by the owners of the establishment, ensure that guests feel immediately at home. The loving care and meticulous attention to detail exercised by the proprietors is evident in each and every corner of the bed & breakfast, whether in the common areas, in the bedrooms, or breakfast room. Free internet connection is available to all guests. Casa Ruffino offers guests an excellent concierge service, assisting in the organisation of excursions, transfers, car rental, and tastings of typical local produce and wines.
