Forget resort Hotels in Trapani..they're aren't any! The best way to stay in this lovely seaside town is to rent an apartment and live like a local for your holiday.
We booked La Dimora dell 800-apartment 4 but on arrival we were put into apartment 3 (some small issue with air-con), which was a much larger apartment and had everything you could possibly need for you stay.
The entire apartment is done out in cool tiles with large shuttered doors and windows, lovely and cool even without air conditioning on. The small kitchen had most of what you would need if you felt like cooking a meal..but there are so many options for eating out in Trapani that we didn't prepare anything more elaborate than coffee and tea. There is a coffee bar (Aris) a few doors down from the apartment which we used every day during our stay, they will even deliver breakfast to the apartment. Great little place.
There is plenty of storage space in the large bedroom, so you don't feel like you are living from a suitcase for the duration of your stay. The air conditioning in the bedroom was very efficient and the bed was comfortable, all the ingredients for a good nights sleep.
The apartment has a washing machine and a rooftop terrace with a drying rack. The terrace has a table and chairs, but very hot to sit outside during the day, with the sun reflecting off the concreted area.
This apartment is perfectly located for the main streets of Trapani, a short walk from the Cathedral San Lorenzo in the centre, a short walk to the Lido Paradiso and a lovely stroll along the seafront takes you to the Mercado del Pesce, where there was a food festival during our stay..great atmosphere with food stalls and live music each night
The hosts, Claudia and her husband were a pleasure to deal with. Such lovely people :)
This apartment is great, perfect location, quiet, good facilities. If you owned your own place in Trapani it would probably look like this!
