About Flavia

We live in Germany, married for over 20 years and we have 2 adult children who are currently studying. I'm Flavia and originally from Northern Italian. I'm translator and operate aswell a camping site with holiday-apartments on the Lake Maggiore .My husband is a german architect. We love Sicily and their hearty and hospitable people. We are in Sicily a couple of weeks every year and we live in the apartment next door. When we are on location, we are happy to give you our personal advice(optional) and tips to make your stay as interesting and enjoyable as possible.

Flavia purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Flavia chose Trapani province

We fell in love with this original area near Trapani, the city and their special people from the very beginning. After several years of renovation, in- and outside, we finally integrated and feel comfortable.

What makes this apartment unique

Due to the special position in the historic centre you experience the country and its people first-hand. You quickly get to know the baker, the barista or the 80-year-old newspaper man with knowledge of the german language next door. Also the most important gastronomes are personal friends with us and serve our guests with warmth. You experience the real city life in a pristine city without mass tourism.

Just like the fish market which is still quite original, fish comes directly from the boat onto the market. Gorgeous seasonal vegetables and fruit is sold directly by farmers and marketeers.

Particularly interesting are the religious festivals around Easter with the numerous processions that can be traced directly from the balcony of the apartment.

City bus on the doorstep, further lines at the bus station, about 15 min walk.

We stayed 4 days in November 2015.

The apartment is really nice and likewise for the location and the city itself.

The apartment is perfect for a short stay. The building is wonderful and the there is a sea view from the kitchen.

Would book this place again if Trapani is on our itinerary.

Stunning apartment , fabulous location .

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful, airy , spacious apartment , great central location . Close to everything you could possibly need .

Flavia kindly organised the airport transfer , paid locally , the local tourist information gave us all the info we needed .

The sea breezes kept the temperature down , even when it hit the 40's , it was pleasant .

The apartment is perfectly described and is much larger than it appears in the photos .

Make sure you visit Erice , Favignana and San Vito lo Capo. I would definitely recommend this apartment to families of all ages , the children loved the gelato con brioche ,( ice-cream sandwich) for breakfast .

Bella Sicilia

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren schon überall in Italien, in Trapani hat uns besonders gefallen: die nähe zum Meer mit Fischmarkt und Inseln, die authentische Altstadt mit Fischern die ihre Netze flicken, die bisher beste Pizza, natürlich die traumhafte Wohnung direkt an der Mauer mit Meerblick, die Naturschutzgebiete, die alten Tempel und vieles mehr...vielen Dank

Ferien in der Stadt

  • 5 of 5

Toll eingerichtete und sehr gut ausgestattete Ferienwohnung in der es großen Spaß macht mit der Familie seine Ferien zu verbringen. Egal ob große oder kleine Kinder. Wir haben ganz Westsizilien von hier aus erkundet. Mit dem Auto, der Fähre und dem Fahrrad! Und am Abend das Treiben in der Stadt genossen! Sollte uns die Sehnsucht nach italienischem Leben (einkaufen auf dem Fischmarkt, danach Kaffee trinken und sehr leckeres Eis essen :-), schnorcheln im glasklarem Meer....) wieder packen, kommen wir sehr gerne wieder um unsere Seele baumeln zu lassen!
