It was surprisingly quiet: even the clock tower stopped chiming at 8pm. Like nearly all flats and hotels in Italy, it has inadequate lighting, especially for older people whose eyesight is less than perfect. Giovanni, the owner, was exceptionally welcoming and helpful, even carrying our heavy luggage up the rather narrow staircase. We recommend this flat to anyone who wants to be in the centre of things in Trapani.

New, comfortable and well-equipped apartment near the beautiful sandy beach. Located in a good point, especially for those who want to see Sicily by car. Great place for holidays and exploring north and west coast. Good choice for active tourists.

Es gibt nichts zu bemaengeln, die Charakterisierung auf den Beschreibungen treffen zu und werden eingehalten. Fuer 3 Schlafzimmer und das wirklich grosszuegige Platzangebot fanden wir das Appartment auch guenstig. Die Seilbahn nach Erice ist zu Fuss erreichbar, den Weg zu den Anlegern legt man am besten mit dem Bus zurueck (Busfahrer fragen, ob er zum Hafen faehrt). Es gibt in den unmittelbaren Anliegerstrassen Parkplaetze - aber aufgepasst, relativ nah sind auch eingeschraenkte Parkzonen und es wird auch abgeschleppt. Wir hatten einen Mietwagen und haben jeden Tag Ausfluege gemacht, das sollte man auch einplanen. Davide, der Vermieter, ist sehr hilfsbereit und gibt schon im Vorfeld eine Menge nuetzliche Urlaubs-Informationen. Nutzen ! Als einzige Einschraenkung sollte vielleicht klar sein, dass es ein staedtisches Wohnquartier ist. Wer es betont ruhig haben will, sollte einen anderen Ort waehlen - mit den damit verbundenen Nachteilen, dass Einkaufen und Ausgehen entsprechend umstaendlicher wird.
