My sister and I arrived in Palermo after a long flight from Australia to be greeted by the owner Guiseppe who drove us to Trapani to our wonderful apartment on the 3rd floor with 4 tiny balconies where we sat and watched the streets come alive every day. The nearby restaurants were fabulous and we soon found the best bars to sample the great Sicilian wine. The apartment was a little noisy at night but the atmosphere in the area was fantastic. We did day trips to the Egadi Islands and the hilltop village of Erice where I had the BEST arancino. The cannoli in Trapani were superb as was the pasta with pesce spada. Thoroughly recommend this very clean, comfortable apartment and would love to return.
We stayed in the Torre dell'Orologio Apartment at the height of the busy summer holiday season and it was an unforgettable experience. We enjoyed the celebrations leading up to and including the spectacular candlelit procession for 15th August. At the time of our stay, Trapani was holding its annual music festival and there were nightly gigs just steps away. On one evening a full brass band set up and performed just below our balcony. We liked the traditional style of the apartment with its beautiful, cool tiled floors, antique furniture and historic setting. It was a lovely retreat from the heat, made more so because of the effective air conditioning. We had pleasure eating some home cooked meals made in the little kitchen, using fresh produce from stalls near the fish market. We loved strolling around the streets of Trapani and soaking up the atmosphere of this special place. It is an excellent base for exploring the region, including the fascinating salt pans and the exquisite Egadi islands. The owner could not have been more helpful with our arrival and departure arrangements. His friendly and efficient service made us feel at home and relaxed.
