Why Flavia Beretta-Frank chose Trapani
We fell in love with this original area near Trapani, the city and their special people from the very beginning. After several years of renovation, in- and outside, we finally integrated and feel comfortable.
What makes this apartment unique
Due to the special position in the historic centre you experience the country and its people first-hand. You quickly get to know the baker, the barista or the 80-year-old newspaper man with knowledge of the german language next door. Also the most important gastronomes are personal friends with us and serve our guests with warmth. You experience the real city life in a pristine city without mass tourism.
Just like the fish market which is still quite original, fish comes directly from the boat onto the market. Gorgeous seasonal vegetables and fruit is sold directly by farmers and marketeers.
Particularly interesting are the religious festivals around Easter with the numerous processions that can be traced directly from the balcony of the apartment.
City bus on the doorstep, further lines at the bus station, about 15 min walk.
