This family home, the first arriving in Erice entering from Porta Trapani, belonged to my old uncles since 1950. For part of the year my family live in the upper part of the building that you can see immediately after the monumental door and give to the guest the charming ground floor of the building, which is always fresh and a very relaxing place in all seasons. This door (Porta Trapani) storically was the main entrance of the town. Today is the same beeing 30 meters far from the new cableway connecting Erice with the beautiful town of Trapani 760 meters down the mountain. Beeing part of the system of the ancient perimeter of the punic walls, so called cyclopic for their greatness, the house is supposed to have been built with some of the stones of the walls themselves. is part of the ancient punic walls.

Giovanni purchased this apartment in 1997

This house is beeing passing down through the generations, as the most of the Erice house, because owners love to stay here and come for week-end or longer periods all the year long.

Just 30 meters far from the station of the Cableway Erice-Trapani and 10 meters by the public parking located in the square (Piazza Porta Trapani) at your arrival in the Medieval Town. Exclusive garage available for guests. Mother Church, monuments and shops very close. Erice is beautiful itself but also strategically located for excursions to the most important tourist site in the province of Trapani (Segesta, Selinunte, Marsala, Mozia, Egadi Islands, The Salt route, the Zingaro nature reserve).

FAMILY FROM LITHUANIA

  • 4 of 5
We stayed at the appartment for one night before our flight. We are a family of four (chlidren of 6 & 8).
The appartment is at the prime location, very comfortable, all the appliances and supplies you would need for a comfortable stay. The owner is very caring, took us all the way from Trapani to Erice, phoned the restaurant for us, really warm welcome! The restaurant he recommended - Venus - is also great. Also, because there were no guests coming that day, the owner kindly let us stay as long as we needed on the next day. On the minus side - the appartment is on the ground floor and has very few windows overlooking a tiny yard, so it is not very light.

Erice was very cold and windy when we came, all in fog, that only cleared around midday. The views are breathtaking, both at night and at a day time, the architecture is a break in a good sense from all the baroque of Sicily, the gardens are beautiful. The views would be better if ugly anthenas would not be obstructing it at times. Also, the town is a touristy place with just a few locals, maybe because of low season.

Owner's Response: Edita, your wonderful family had the chance to visit Erice during the low season, which means to get the great opportunity to see how this place can be different in the different seasons. From the magic foggy days to the blooming spring and the lighting summer. Note that traditional and most popular houses in Erice are normally built with small windows for this reason: to get warmer inside when it is cold and to get the rooms fresh during summer. It is part of the characteristic of this medieval sicilian town. It was a privilege to host you, Giovanni

ERICE STAY

  • 5 of 5
We had a very nice experience staying in Erice. The owner met us at the airport, showed us around Trapani, and was a great host throughout our stay in Erice/Trapani. Erice itself is a magical place filled with castles, churches and plenty to see - worth the winding, steep road up the mountain side. The apartment is small, but comes with everything you need and is in a perfect location.
