“Not the best out there”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

Got a room after reading good reviews; it's not bad, but it's not great. The owner is welcoming and nice, only speaks Italian, but trying to be helpful. The location is not perfect, in a neighbourhood that is central, but just not very attractive. It's still a 10-15 mins walk to the bus station or the main attractions. The B&B is on the second floor of an apartment building, with narrow and steep stairs, a bit smelly. It was a not a problem for us, but definitely something to consider for families with children and people with reduced mobility.

The room was ok, clean, but looked a bit old; it was not comfortable to sit and read, but good for sleeping. Couldn't see the TV because of one of the bed posters (not too relevant, as everything is in Italian); there was a nice terrace, but I think it's shared with another room and it's easy to walk from one room to another. Breakfast was nice, the owner was sweet and made coffee herself, she also gave us bottled water and a map.

There is no internet at the B&B and I am not sure about parking, as it is residents only zone, I wouldn't count on actually finding a spot even if the lady has a permit. If you need food, there is a local supermarket just minutes away, which is nice.

I initially saw the B&B Ligny on tripadvisor but there were no English reviews so I was unsure to book it ... I am glad I did.
We arrived at B&B after a short walk less than 5 mins from the bus stop at the port (the bus from Trapani airport leaves just outside it is branded AST - costs €4.50 pp and takes about 30 mins get off last stop at port).
On arrival Gina the owner gave us a wonderful warm welcome, she has small bit of English and I had some Italian so we managed fine.

The whole place was fresh and spotless clean, very authentic. Bedroom was lovely and bright with high ceilings and a big window/ door onto a small balcony where you could step out and view the sea. There was also air conditioning but we didn't use it we prefer to sleep with the window open.
I was really comfortable staying here and it was nice and relaxed . Breakfast was 7:30 - 10:00 lovely fresh home made coffee and fresh bread, cakes, preserves, juice etc.

There is great hustle and bustle of the fish market close by in the mornings the port is only about 300 meters away so you can go there and see the fishermen selling the fresh fish - it is great fun . You can also take afew short steps outside you can sit and relax on the rocky shore and take in the sea and sun.

The B&B Ligny is a little outside the main tourist strip about 1k which I really liked - it was nice to have a stroll or cycle home. We rented bicycles for €9 per day and cycled all over the town. Theres lovely sandy beach a short distance away (10 mins relaxed cycling). We also took the cable car to Erice ...twice actually, for the second time we took our bikes up in the cable car and cycled back down the mountain.
Less than 5mins walk away from B&B and not in the main tourist restaurant street is the very best authentic sicilian cuisine at Locanda Di Frati a MUST visit - check out reviews here on tripadvisor also.
All in all a super 3 nights in Trapani the weather was great too :)
