Make a holiday rental home or villa in Trapani, Sicily, Italy your home away from home

Trapani lies on the western tip of Sicily, Italy. Jutting out into the Mediterranean Sea, Trapani has a long and inextricable love of the sea, and was named after the curved shape of the bay on which it stands, and upon which most of the folklore tales and traditions emanate. Trapani is a magnificent destination for those wishing to explore the best of Sicily, as well as enjoying some of the most sensational sunsets over the Mediterranean that you can find.

Things to do in Trapani, Sicily

Despite concentrated Allied bombing during WWII, there are still some phenomenal sites to explore in Trapani, mostly dating back to the 14th and 15th centuries, not all the way back to the town’s medieval roots. The baroque stylings of the Church of Sant’Agostino, Santa Maria di Gesu, Basilica-Sanctuary of Maris Santissima and Fontana di Tritone are all well worth investigation from Trapani accommodation.

The coast of Trapani is a huge attraction. This region of Sicily provides some of the best coastal walking anywhere on the island, especially in the stunning saline nature park of Zingaro. The most celebrated beach to visit from a Trapani holiday rental is a short walk along the salt lagoon at San Vito lo Capo, a long, sandy beach that never gets crowded. Trapani is also a sailing centre of the highest quality, offering plenty of moorings as well as access into the Mediterranean and the Egadi Islands.

One of the most interesting times to visit a Trapani holiday home is during Easter, when Trapani’s Easter Procession takes over the town. During this period, known as the ‘Misteri’, townspeople parade religious statues through the streets for around 16 hours, with events, performances and feasts adding to the atmosphere. The summer music festival, the Luglio Musicale Trapanese, in July and annual tuna festival also draw the plaudits from visitors.

Places to visit on holiday in Trapani, Sicily

Trapani is still the gateway to the tiny Egadi Islands, which lie just off the north coast of Sicily. Tiny and mountainous, the Egadi Islands are most famous for their sensational beaches and secluded bays, as well as their fishing credentials and huge range of Neolithic and Palaeolithic cave paintings. Favignana is the largest of the islands, as well as one of the more popular of the islands to visit. Boats leave for the islands from the port.

Weather in Trapani, Sicily

Summers are wonderfully reliable, with temperatures almost always levelling off between 25 and 30°C during the heat of the day between June and September. Autumn and spring conditions can be varied, although the weather is usually ideal for walking and sightseeing tours.

Cheap flights to Trapani, Sicily

Trapani Airport (TPS), otherwise known as the Vincenzo Florio Airport or Birgi Airport, is found within Trapani, Sicily.

The trip to a holiday rental villa in Trapani town centre takes just 10 minutes from Trapani Airport, and there are always a variety of transfer options available.

Lovely relaxing place with great views

5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay. The property is so well equipped and it made it so easy to self cater with a few basics already there-salt, pepper, herbs, oil and a few other bits. Views are splendid and the garden was really pretty and well maintained. So many butterflies in the garden and lizards too, just great for wildlife. Lazing in the hammock under olive trees was divine. Bed was very comfortable and air-con meant temperature was fine too. We had a lovely welcome from our hosts when we arrived and the place was really clean and welcoming. You do need a car really as all the beaches and places of interest are a bit too far to walk but if you have transport it is ideal. The beaches in the area are fabulous and best snorkelling ever in the Nature Reserve which is a short drive away. Highly recommended.

Wish our stay could have been longer!

Villa Fontana was just what we wanted - quiet and relaxing in beautiful surroundings. Our hosts were welcoming and helpful and we loved every minute of our stay. Unfortunately, family circumstances meant we had to cut our stay short but we all agree that we will return to see more of the area and we will recommend Villa Fontana to all our friends.
