Make a self catering cottage or holiday rental in Trapani, Sicily your home away from home

The port town of Trapani is on the western coast of Sicily and is an ideal place to use as a self-catering holiday base for exploring this lovely island.   Renowned for its seafood, fresh tuna and local cuisine, the town remains largely unspoilt and undiscovered by tourists. The port dates back to Phoenician times when it was used to trade with Africa, Naples and the western Mediterranean. The old town has some interesting medieval buildings and a 17th century tower on the headland and there is a leafy park, where outdoor concerts and events often take place. The region was once mined for salt and there are still windmills along the coast.

Things to Do in Trapani, Sicily

Boat Trips

As Trapani is a port there are a host of day trips which can be taken by boat. Head for the smaller islands such as Favignana and Pantelleria or book a fishing charter for a day.

The Medieval town was badly damaged during World War II but there are some old palazzos which remain along the promontory of the Corso Vittorio Emanuele. The Torre del Ligny now houses a Prehistoric Museum and the offshore fortress known as the Torre della Colombaia is a local landmark.

Visit the Museums

The main tourist attractions close to your Trapani holiday rental home are the Sanctuario dell'Annunziata and the Regional Museum. The Sanctuary is an ornate church with beautiful chapels, one of which houses the 14th century statue of the Madonna and Child. See the collection of medieval art and the historic guillotine.

Very central flat

4 of 5
This attractive small flat is right in the tourist centre of Trapani, which means that there aren't many food shops nearby, but then there's only a microwave, so you won't be doing much serious cooking. 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.

Excellent location, helpful owner

5 of 5
We spent there September 2016. The apartment is light, space full and well located. Just around the corner there are the best Sicilian pizzeria Calvine, local shops and main pedestrian street. The owners Biagio and Francesca are very nice and were very helpful with any question we had. Many thanks for really good days we had at yours!
