An Enchanting Place with Wonderful Hosts. Highly Recommended!
We can't say enough wonderful things about Francesca and Giuseppe's marvelous property. It exceeded all of our expectations, and more. First, the location is ideal. It is easy to get to Trapani and Erice, both of which have much to offer, and we made day trips to several different fantastic beaches and to Segesta to view the ruins. The property is impeccably maintained. It is sparkling clean and our apartment, the Casa delle Majoliche, was incredibly beautiful. The furnishings and artwork were chosen with care and all are gorgeous. It is spacious, with high ceilings and has a wonderful flow, with 2 bathrooms and 2 bedrooms on separate ends of the apartment, a lovely outdoor seating area, 2 different interior living/lounge spaces, a dining room and beautiful tilework everywhere. It made it hard to leave each day, as we felt we were living in a true Sicilian fantasy! There is no air conditioning but we were very comfortable at night sleeping under mosquito nets, and it somehow made it very romantic! The property has a unique pool and extensive gardens -- perfect for those days when we wished to simply relax. There is ample seating around the pool and a shady hammock suitable for napping. Finally, we could not have asked for better hosts. Communicating with them in advance was straightforward, and we absolutely loved them when we met in person. Francesca and Giuseppe are warm, friendly, and very helpful. The first evening they presented us with a spectacular basket of bread sticks, tomatoes, eggs, fruit, olive oil, and other treats. There was beer in the refrigerator and a stocked bar in the apartment. We could not have had a better welcome or start to our trip; they even gave our daughter a lovely birthday gift since it was her birthday the day after we left their home. All in all it was an outstanding value and a truly memorable stay. We are extremely well traveled all across Europe, North America, South America, Asia and Australia and this place is a standout; as such, we have to very much disagree with one prior reviewer's comments that the accommodation was rustic and basic. In conclusion, if you are thinking of traveling to Sicily, we highly recommend that you book this charming and yes, enchanting place. You will not regret it.
Wonderful hosts, very rustic
We could not fault the hospitality of the owners. They were exceptionally kind and thoughtful. They provided everything that you could want for a trip with a baby - including a baby bath and monitor. They also left fruit for us on occasions from the garden as well as local ice cream one night.
The property itself is a beautiful old castle with a charming plunge pool in the grounds. The facilities are rather basic and more rustic than we had imagined e.g. a small kitchen with no kettle, only a couple of working hobs and no sharp knives to prepare food.
The location of the property is on the outskirts of Trapani. Whilst there are numerous places to visit within an hours drive the immediate location lacks charm.
Overall it was a lovely relaxing holiday largely thanks to Giuseppe and Francesca
Thanks for this review, nice to us owners who actually did everything to make your stay pleasant. Upon your arrival I did find everything I thought useful for those traveling with a baby, from cradle, baby tub , baby monitor, thigh chair, milk hot maker ,steam sterilizer, travel band, toy and play rug ... I thought I did not forget anything ... and yet I forgot the kettle! :(
Just ask me and I would give it right away.
For kitchen knives, there is a kitchen towel wrapped in one of the drawers of the plates,for kids safety . For the greatness of the kitchen it 'shows on the site and even, if it can not accommodate a cooking course, it has a huge stone sink, 4 gas burner stove and a 90 - inch oven.
the house has a wonderful view on the well-groomed garden and the erice's mountain, on the left start a long country Street . I also asked if you needed a blender to prepare fresh foods for baby. But I was told that it was not necessary that it was all ok .thank
Beautiful Castle in the foothills of Mount Erice
A relaxing atmosphere in the foothills of Mount Erice. The place is tastefully laid out, everything my family (2 adults and small child) needed. Clean, comfortable with Francesca & Guiseppe as great nearby hosts.
The photos did not do justice to the fantastic accommodation, with a great pool in a beautiful garden. We loved the location of the Casa, near to Trapani & Erice, its close to a mildly busy road but this didn't bother us. We would highly recommend this place.
Dear Paul, thank you for this wonderful review, You , Your wife and your wonderful big eyes baby was been simple perfect guests...also for my kids ,that now have a new friend in UK . i have some nice pictures ....
kisses from sicily
Charming and Hospitable
The accommodation was excellent. The efficiency unit had everything we needed and more, was clean and well appointed. The property was a charming 300-year-old estate with walled in courtyard and gardens. Francesca and Giuseppi happily assisted us with everything we needed and really went the extra mile to make our stay most enjoyable. We would definitely recommend this property to other travelers.
Nous avons passé un très bon moment chez Giuseppe et francesca . Leur maison /propriété est atypique, cadre charmant. C est immense! Francesca et Giuseppe sont charmants et très disponibles que ce soit pour les questions touristiques, logistiques et pratiques et leurs enfants sont aussi adorables . En bref, nous recommandons cette adresse , et j’allais oublier la localisation est idéale pour rayonner aux alentours
The mansion-beam with large garden, olive grove and vineyard is located in Milo, 10 minutes drive from the center of Trapani and from the islands Egadi, perfectly located to reach the beautiful village of Erice, but also Segesta and its magical temple, Marsala, Mozia, the Saline, the Lagoon, San Vito lo Capo, the Zingaro Nature Reserve and that of Mount Hood. In less than half an hour drive you can reach the Terme segestane and doing a little more street spas Monte Vago. A magical place to spend a period of relaxation in contact with nature.
