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.

When we went into the apartment, we were very pleasantly surprised by the size of the apartment and outside area, so much room. The apartment was well kitted out and very modern, with good facilities. Excellent bathrooms, good air con, modern kitchen( but we did eat out except for breakfast). If I had to be picky, I would say that the towels left one a bit wanting, but if that is the worst I could say, it tells you how good the place was. Thank you David for letting us use it for the week, and what a delightful place Trapani is.
