What an amazing place !!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved Erice and the house we stayed in 'st teresa 2' was fantasitic; lovley vaulted ceilings and tastful decoration.

Sergio the owner of the house really couldn't do enough, the perfect host, who even picked up us from the port and drove us to Erice. Sergio speaks perfect English and will help you with everything you need to know about the area, he even text me to check me and my girlfriend got home to the UK safley.

This place is a real find, can't wait to go back.

Agréable petite location calme et fraiche

  • 4 of 5

Beaucoup de charme pour cet appartement rénové dans Erice, véritable nid d aigle. Proche des ruelles touristiques, il est au calme car situé à l écart. A noter qu en aout, il fait au moins 6 degrés en dessous de la température de la vallée, ce qui est vraiment très agréable. Il y a un charmant petit patio mais pas d ampoule pour en profiter le soir. Sans doute que Sergio remédiera à ça rapidement. Son accueil à été parfait et il a été de très bon conseil. Nous étions 2 adultes et 2 adolescents avec 1 chambre et 1 mezzanine. Petit bémol cependant, le vélux qui éclaire la mezzanine et le séjour n'est pas occultant, le réveil est donc matinal.

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 and wine tasting
