Beautiful and elegant apartment in front of Pepoli Museum and Saint Mary Church Gardens, one of the most prestigious neighborhoods in Trapani. Give yourself plenty of space, light, and comfort, and fully enjoy your stay. The apartment consists of two large bedrooms, each with en-suite bathroom , a fully equipped kitchen that oversees a lovely courtyard, a dining room (it can accommodate two additional guests), and a beautiful parlor with a large balcony that opens on Saint Mary Church Gardens. Private parking for one car is also included. The apartment is within walking distance from the cableway to Erice - one of the most picturesque medieval towns in Italy - and only a a few minutes from the beach. You can reach Trapani port to catch the boats to the breathtaking Egadi Islands or visit the old town in 5 minutes by car. Within a short drive from the natural and historical beauties that Trapani offers: Cornino Bay, San Vito, Segesta, Scopello, the Zingaro reserve, and much more.
Neighborhood: The apartment is located in one of Trapani's most convenient neighborhoods. You'll have access to plenty of grocery stores, supermarkets, bars, cafes, and other shopping points. Run to the Despar downstairs to get some fresh sandwiches, drinks, and any other groceries (also open on Sundays). Have breakfast at Bar Todaro and enjoy one of the best cappucinos in town accompanied by fresh pastries and brioches, and don't miss the mythical 'timbalettos' or 'arancines' on your way out. In the mood for some serious ice cream? Run downstairs and try the famous 'nocciola mantecato' on a brioche, or go to Benivegna and taste its famous cannoli or its selection of small cones. Hop on the cableway and get drinks in Erice; a perfect way to end the day - beauty and romance just around the corner.
Why rent in Trapani: Trapani and the surrounding area are a breathtaking mixture of natural beauties and historical attractions. If you love snorkeling and scuba-diving, visit the beautiful Egadi islands, accessible by ferryboat in less than half an hour. For sunbathing and swimming, choose Trapani's beach, but make it sure you pick a spot close to the windmill toward the end of the beach, away from the crowd. Also add to your trip plan a visit to Cornino's and Macari's bays. Avoid San Vito in August - just too busy. But visit Lo Zingaro, a pristine natural park with amazing little bays where you can spend the day hiking, swimming, and sunbathing. If you love history, go to Segesta and Selinunte where you'll find majestic marks of the ancient Greek's architecture. Or visit Erice, one of the most picturesque medieval towns in Italy. A lover of the arts? Then spend half a day in Gibellina at the lunar spot of the 'Gretto' and the sophisticated contemporary art museum 'The Gibellina Foundation. The list of things to do and food not to miss is endless. But in the end, what is going to make your vacation unforgettable is where you choose to stay. While the area offers many rental locations, Trapani is the most strategic gateway of all. Also, the only place that won't feel too touristy and unnecessarily expensive in the summer months. While you want to stay in a pretty place, you probably won't want to be stuck on a crowded island, or end up feeling overwhelmed by the droves of tourists who swarm San Vito in July and August, or feel you have to climb up and down from Erice everyday to reach the nearest beach. Similarly, it won't make sense to choose poorly-served locations when you can stay in a picturesque sea-town that offers plenty of excellent restaurants and night-life spots. Trapani, the sickle-shaped town that opens to the sea and the Egadi islands at the feet of Mount Erice, with kilometers of sandy beach and plenty of unmissable 'food' spots awaits you....Read more
"La qualita' ed il servizio nelle piccole e grandi cose"

Il nostro soggiorno in Sicilia si e' rivelato perfetto grazie all'ospitalita' di Giorgia e Caterina e la qualita' della loro struttura e del servizio da loro ricevuto, dalla prenotazione al check-out. L'appartmento ha una posizione ideale, a due passi dal centro storico e la spiaggia, e allo stesso tempo vicino ad Erice e alle altre destinazioni must-see intorno a Trapani. A parte l'ampiezza e la gradevolezza dell'appartamento, insolite rispetto al tipico appartamento che di solito si trova per brevi soggiorni, siamo rimasti colpiti dalla pulizia e gentilezza La settimana trascorsa con base a Trapani e' stata un susseguirsi di scoperte e momenti indimenticabili resi ancora piu' speciali dalla sensazione di avere una vera 'cssa' dove tornare la sera. Raccomandiamo vivamente e abbiamo in programma di tornare a fine Settembre.

L'apartement est tres bien situe pour acceder aux magazins et cafes d'un chic quartier, aussi bien que pour se deplacer en ville ou visiter les plages. L'interieur est d'une proprete indiscutable, mais aussi d'une simplicite naturelle at d'une elegance exquise avec les touches raffinees d'un climat ensoleille. On s'y habitue tres vite. Mon epouse et le couple d'amis en vacances avec nous l'avons considere comme un sanctuaire après de longues journee de plage, ou de matinees active de visites des sites de Trapani.
Finalement, pour le prix, c'est un bijou. Et grace a nos bavardages avec les negociants du coin, nous avons decouvert que nos hotes sont d'une famille locale tres respectee de profondes souches Siciliennes.
Donc en quelques mots: Beaute, elegance, comfort, prix et classe. Bonne vacances!
