We loved staying here ...our first visit to Sicily & we were delighted with everything . First impressions were.... 'where are we ??' ...The appartment is simply furnished on the top floor ( 4 flights of stairs up ! ) of a 2 story condiminium in the charming fishing village of Trappeto - about 30 minutes from Palermo airport. I booked it directly with the owner Giuseppe through Tripadvisor & the whole process went smoothly from beginning to end . He booked us a return transfer from the airport & have to say from the moment we arrived we really felt that we were part of 'village life' . The appartment is quite large with 2 bedrooms & one big living ,eating space , sparsely furnished ....air conditioned .. very clean with everything you need for a comfortable stay. The large terrace really made it for us ( table , chairs & BBQ) & we virtually lived outside as the weather was so lovely & warm . Trappeto is a small village with only 3,000 inhabitants & we just loved exploring the narrow streets , going to the shops /harbour & lido and we seemed to be the only Brits /tourists there - the locals were so friendly and as there was very little English spoken , we had to try our little Italian & this made it a great experience. As it was near the end of the season not all the restuarants were open , but those we did eat in served excellent food & wine ....& we had many a complimentary Limoncello ! Prices were excellent ,about half to what we would pay here in England. All in all a wonderful, relaxing holiday which gave us a taste of real Sicillean life & one we hope we can repeat one day ....If you want a get away from it all ...this is for you !
