Prevent Contact from being deleted if a certain field contains an integer > 0

We would like to prevent users from deleting a Contact record  if a certain field contains an integer > 0, and output a message that explains why it cannot be deleted.
I am experienced with the GUI side of Salesforce.com, but have no experience with Visualforce pages or APEX.

Can anyone assist me in creating a mechanism to prevent Contact deletion based on the criteria above? 

You wouldn't need visualforce for this, just a before delete trigger that checks the value and adds an error to the contact if it is > 0.
