Guestbook comments from the manager

Erice is a short drive up from Trapani. The road is a typical Italian serpentine road but with not that much traffic normally it's fine. The whole Trapani area is very nice, especially the Zingaro Nature Reserve is beautiful and certainly worth visiting as well. In the city of Erice, it feels like you've returned to the Middle ages, especially when it's smoggy. A lovely city indeed with a very special atmosphere.

The accommodation is everything promised and very convenient for a family of four. The owner is very nice and most helpful. We can certainly recommend this accommodation and Erice!

Cornino - Mount Cofano Nature Reserve
Car: recommended

Erice is located on top of Mount Erice, at around 750m above sea level, providing spectacular views of Trapani, the Aegadian Islands and the western coast of Sicily (from Marsala to San Vito Lo Capo).

The temperature is always cool, even on hot summer days.

Although the town is small in size, between the 12th and 17th Centuries more that 60 churches were built in and around Erice. There are many of these churches still standing in the town, some now converted to other uses.

Combined with its position at Sicily's western tip, Erice is a good base for exploring this part of Sicily or a useful stopover on a touring holiday. This area, in fact, offers numerous natural and historic attractions of great beauty and interest: the broad sandy beach of San Vito Lo Capo, salt-pans, several nature reserves ( Zingaro, Stagnone and Mount Cofano, the Egadi Islands) , well preserved Greek temple of Segesta, the archaeological site of Selinunte , the wine county of Marsala, to mention a few.

Other Activities: Eating out, cultural tours, wine tasting
