I just got back from Trapani, where I stayed at the wonderful Cielomare. A friend recommended it to me, so I did not do too much research before going and I was not sure what to expect. I arrived with a late flight, and I was not expecting any warm welcome at that time of the night. So the first surprise was to find Enzo (Vincenzo Terranova, the owner) in the street waiting for me. He helped me with the suitcase up to the 4th floor of this old building. The flat we were staying (Asdrubale) was the second surprise. Enzo designed it by himself, choosing a provencal style and taking care of all details. The flat is very bright, airy and overlook the most beautiful part of the city, le mura di ponente. During the day you can seat in the wonderful terrace and enjoy a wonderful blue sea just few steps from the flat, during the evening you can admire African like sunsets. At night there is a wonderful breeze coming in from the sea and giving some relief from the Sicilian heat. The beautiful thing abut Cileomare is that you are right in the centre of the old city, immersed in the real life of a not too touristy city and at the same time you are right by a wonderful blue sea. Gloria, Enzo's assistant, is as helpful as ever, supporting you with finding local tuna fish sellers, nice restaurants, boats to visit the islands in front and any other issue. I am planning to go back to Trapani very soon and I have no doubt that Cielomare will be again where I choose to stay. Gaia Gozzo
