One of our best holidays ever we spent in Trapani in this great apartment, a lot thanks to Alessandro and Claudio who took so good care of us!
I chose this apartment after I had read the great reviews it had previously received and indeed it proved to be a winner! Me and my family (husband and two teenagers aged 16) stayed there for one week and we felt at home right away.
The apartment is spacious, beautiful, clean, tidy and very well equipped.
It is close to the bus stop from where you can go to the airport, San Vito Lo Capo etc. This place is only a 10-15 minutes walk from both the beach and the Old city and just around the corner you will find three supermarkets, bakery, pizzeria, gelateria, pharmacy and much more.
Alessandro and his brother Claudio are really the best hosts! They are always there to help and guide you. A good thing too is that they speak english which is convenient for those who do not speak italian (as myself).
There is so much to be said about Trapani, this great apartment and the hosts, much has already been said, and we do agree with what has been said in previous reviews.
We can really recommend Trapani and this apartment to everyone! We loved it and we will be back for sure!
Thanks to Alessandro and Claudio :-)
Maria and family
It had been the second time we had been here with our 2 children aged 13 and 14 years and it had been a great stay again.
Living in the same appartement of the 20th century house with balcony and high ceilings. It was very well equipped in a very individual and lovely style by Alessandro our host. The flat was in a very good condition last year and still this year again!
You can reach the appartement without problems by bus or by rental car from the airport which is about 15 km away. A car could be rented for e. g. at a rental car broker such as rentalcars.com from at home which could be cheaper as directly at the airport.
Also this year Alessandro supplid us with insider information about the Sicilian history, people and foods.
The restaurant he recommended was unique. The food was very special, various and very delicious. We wouldn´t forget he said. For sure, Alessandro - you were right!
No question - we can recommend the appartement to all of our friends!!!
Thank you very much again for the nice Easter holidays and be sure to see us again!!!

I selected this apartment based on the great reviews it had previously received, and it exceeded my expectations. The two bedroom apartment is very spacious with amazing vaulted ceilings and a beautifully tiled floor. The apartment is clean and newly renovated, and included plenty of room in which my two young children could run around.
Centrally located, we could quickly get to a market as well as shops, cafes, and delicious take-out pizza. With a 4 and 6 year old walking with us, we easily arrived in the old city ten minutes after leaving the apartment. There is a beautiful playground located in the historic park and the ports are close by.
Alessandro acted more like a gracious host then mere owner. He picked us up from the airport, offered to make dinner on New Years' Eve, and proudly toured us around the sites throughout the week. He took us to an amazing restaurant on our last night - one not listed in any travel book. He knows the Island well and will gladly advise on where to go and how to get there.
We had a memorable and amazing week thanks to Alessandro and his beautiful apartment.
We lived in this apartment for 5 days in October. The apartment is exactly as it is on the website, no surprises. It was clean and well maintained. The owner Alessandro was living next door at the time and was very helpful with any information we needed. The apartment is kid friendly and well priced. We used the computer provided at the apartment and didnt have to lug ours from Belgium, which was perfect.
It is located off a busy street with bus connections to almost everywhere within Trapani. We used the bus stop 'scuola umberto' (5 min walk) almost everyday including taking the airport shuttle bus. it is a 15min walk to the main bus station for buses to Erice and a little further walk to the port for the ferries to the Egadi islands. A grocery store and bakery is within 5 mins.
The downside is that it is at the corner of a busy street and is noisy well into the night and early morning although our 3yr old seemed to sleep through it ok. It is a good 25min walk to the old center of Trapani and that got a little tiring to walk back from at the end of the day pushing a stroller, so people with strollers might reconsider, but its perfect for couples and anyone with older kids who can walk distances with no problem.
Thank you Alessandro for a pleasant stay.
Both Salvatore and Alessandro were perfect hosts. Salvatore was available to show us around their very interesting, comfortable, spacious and well equipped apartment; it was a joy to stay in such a tasteful piece of history. We were given a welcome pack of tasty biscuits, sponge-cakes, water, milk and fruit juice and verbally, lots of useful information about Trapani and the surrounding area. Fresh bread and other produce is easily available from shops nearby. The air quality in the apartment is excellent as is the comfort of the beds and both Sandra and myself slept very well.
The beautiful historic old town is a few minutes walk away and we never tired of its attractions. Even when the streets were full of people (Friday evenings and weekends) we were never jostled like in some large towns and cities. The people (of all ages) are well mannered, respectful, courteous and nimble-footed! This attitude is also reflected in their driving and road manners as they always slowed down and treated pedestrians as if they actually had the right to share the roads with the traffic. This makes strolling the streets much more relaxing as I haven’t yet learned how to fly across roads by flapping my arms!
Alessandro offered to be our tour-guide and would drive us around; which was a great offer but we preferred instead to use the little Fiat by ourselves for a couple of days to explore some of the outlying areas such as San Vito Lo Capo, Scopello, Castellammare Del Golfo, Marsala, Salemi and Gibellina; some very clean and spacious beaches here too. The internal roads to places such as Salemi are virtually empty of traffic so it was a very relaxing way to experience the beautiful countryside; a photographers paradise! Buses are good value and are a good alternative too.
Experiencing the amazing aerial views from Erice is an absolute must and so we walked to the cable car that took us up the mountain to the town. As well as the amazing views, you will be greeted by beautifully preserved picturesque cobbled streets, ancient houses and churches, fine cafés, restaurants and craft shops. As always the people you meet will be helpful, courteous and respectful.
Our seven day holiday was one of the best we have ever had. I have taken many beautiful pictures not least of which is one of Sandra in an extraordinary restaurant in Custonaci that Alessandro drove us to in the his ‘treasured’ Fiat. The food was brilliant… just like you Alessandro! ;-)
This is really an extra ordinary appartment!
We was 2 adults and three teens and we spent 12 nights in Alessandro's bigger appartment which is not advertised here but which is next door to the one advertised only bigger with 2 bedrooms. The appartment have everything you need and it is a beautiful appartment with about 5 meters ceiling height, the appartment is more beautiful than the photos shows and fully equipped.
It is a very quiet neighborhood, you have the mainstreet around the courner, you reach the beach in 5-10 minutes, the old city is just 10-15 minutes away if you walk. There is buss stops at the mainstreet, shopping and food stores just around the corner. And of course a lot of small cafés and glass bares.
The owners was very helpfull! They picked us up at the airport and drow us to the appartment, then a sightseeing and food stop. The owners was always aviable if there was any problems or questions and only a few minutes away. We think the owners do more than usually when you rent the appartment.
We give the owners the best recommendations!!!
Barbro Krantz & Patrik Bjerkander,
Trapani (Sicilian: Tràpani) is a city on the west coast of Sicily in Italy. It is the capital of the Province of Trapani. Founded by Elymians, the city is still an important fishing port and the main gateway to the nearby Egadi Islands.
Trapani is a very good attractions for tourists for many reasons, there is a beautiful coast ideal for many seaside activities, there are archaeological sites of international interest, there are beautiful landscapes and naturals reserves to visit for sea divers or for hikers.
Much of the old town of Trapani dates from the later medieval or early modern periods; there are no extant remains of the ancient city. Many of the city's historic buildings are designed in the Baroque style.
The city is renowned for its Easter procession, The Misteri, when the town's guilds carry groups of sculpted 17th century and 18th century religious statues through the streets in a procession lasting for 16 hours on Good Friday and Holy Saturday.
