The house is situated in a vineyard with fig trees growing around the house. It is a 25 minute walk up the mountain road to the medieval village of Erice. Trapani is the main town and is about 15 minutes by car down the mountain. The mountain road (SP3) is steep with hairpin bends, so it is best to hire a small car like most of the locals.
Anna-Maria who owns the property is delightful and very helpful although she does not speak English. If you rely on SatNav, please note that the SatNav will only direct you to the start of the SP3 road. We got caught out by this and got lost and had to phone Anna-Maria from a hotel. She was great and came and met us. However, once we knew where we were going, the house was easy to find.
The house is a small stone built property with a terrace overlooking the vineyard and a hammock as well. The interior has a double bedroom and a sofa bed in the other room which doubles up as a kitchen and dining room. There is a small bathroom with a shower. The kitchen is fairly well stocked. The only thing that we found to be missing was a tin opener. The only criticism that I would make about the furnishing is that the mattress on the double bed is a bit like a camp bed and was not particularly comfortable. There was also a bit of a smell in the bathroom but i think that this is probably inevitable bearing in mind the location of the house.
We found that there were some provisions in the fridge which was very helpful nd also some local produce for sale, including local wine which was delicious.
As well as being close to Erice and Trapani, the house convenient for other places if you want a day out such as Palermo.
We had a very relaxing stay and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. I would certainly stay here again and would recommend it.
