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.

We enjoyed our 2 nights here but did have problems with parking restrictions on the road outside and came out the first morning to find our car had disappeared! It had been towed away and we needed to pay 36 euros to get it back! The owners were very apologetic, but as we arrived on a Sunday evening and the parking restrictions related to Mondays it would be helpful to have been clearly shown where we could park free, and to have a notice about parking in the apartment to remind us. Also just a little concern about the bedside shelves which look very smart but have sharp edges and could do some damage getting up in the night a bit bleary eyed! Other than this we loved Trapani, exploring old town and taking the cable car to Erice. Thank you!

Villa was beautiful and spotless. Location and views were great. It was well equipped and laid out. Couldn't have been better and we already want to return. Amazing customer service.
