Reviewed June 15, 2012

I stayed at Terrazze Villanova for three nights with a friend of mine from law school and had an outstanding stay! I've never experienced such hospitality! The hostess and her husband worked so hard to make our stay a pleasant one. They helped us to plan our stay and even drove us places that we wanted to go!! On the third day of my stay I ended up having to stay in all day to get some work done. The hostess did everything she could to make me comfortable - including providing me with food throughout the day to nibble on and checking in to see if she could do anything to help!! She was just so incredibly sweet!

The room is spacious with a comfortable bed and great air conditioning. The common area is very nice and bright with a great balcony and eating space. The breakfasts were amazing with lots of variety. Really I cannot speak highly enough about this place - it is really a great place to stay in Trapani!

Room: 2 night stay in twin room. Small comfortable room with wardrobe, desk, modern TV and private ensuite. Free wi-fi with good connection. No safe facilities were provided in the room.

Sleep Quality: Comfortable single bed. Air conditioned room that was dark for sleeping, however road noise is audible. We were unfortunate to experience the sounds of the truck collecting rubbish in the early hours of both mornings.

Bathroom: Small bathroom with toilet, bidet, shower (no bath), hand basin. Whilst the water pressure and heat is very good, the shower cubicle is very small. Anyone larger than average may struggle. We saw the size of the shower cubicle in one other room and it was a little larger than ours. Very clean with great linen (large towel, face washers, hand towels, bath mats) and a selection of toiletries available in the room. Lovely touches included a hand held make up mirror.

Food: b/fast is served in the communal area at a time of your choice. Hot food is not offered at b/fast, rather a variety of packaged pastries/cakes/croissants along with some cereal, bread for toasting and a small selection of fruits and yoghurts, cheese and meats. Tea and coffee is available all day. I’m sure a selection could be tailored to your tastes just be speaking with the very hospitable hosts.

Location: Located on one of the main avenues of Trapani (Via Giovanbattista Fardella), the B&B is approx 15mins walking from the old town and approx 2km (30mins walk) away from the cable car to Erice. Free parking is just 5 mins walk away. For evening dining, I’d recommend the old town (which could be up to 15-20mins walk) due to higher number of choices. Very limited immediately surrounding the B&B. There are no sea views here and the outdoor terrace overlooks the main street. If you have your own transport and are staying in Trapani as a base to explore surrounding places (eg Egadi Islands, Erice, San Vito lo Capo, Segasta, Marsala, etc), then the location is very good.

Service: Elda and Vito are simply fantastic. They could not be more hospitable, accommodating, and friendly. They are happy to provide any advice you need and nothing is a bother for them. They do speak some English which is improving all the time. I did wake them a little early one morning (requiring their assistance) and I was greeted with a hug!

Value for money: 2 nights was €140 for two including b/fast, which was good value.

Other: The B&B is located just off the main street and the main entrance is a large wooden door. I was very concerned before entering as it did not resemble anything like the pictures. Once inside though, it is very very nice, clean and comfortable. Three individual rooms are provided, each with their own ensuites. In the main communal area, you will find a kitchen, large fridge, terrific lounge area, large dining table and a coffee machine. You also have access to a lovely outdoor terrace. Elda & Vito have created a space where you feel like you are staying with friends in your own private quarters in a lovely open, spacious home. If you prefer a large buffet b/fast in a western style hotel, this is not the place for you. It is however clean, comfortable, welcoming, & very friendly.

I've stayed in apartments in Trapani on 4 separate trips and Terrazze Villanova is by far the best I've stayed in! It's only a short,pleasant 10-minute stroll from the historical center and is located in the very heart of the shopping area.
The prices are very competitive with other apartments, but this one is more spacious, more modern, and cleaner than others. The decor is beautiful and there is an excellent outdoor terrace.
The apartment is spotless and clean, bright with lots of natural light (and well-lit otherwise) and exactly as shown in the photos. Each bedroom has its own full, very nice, bathroom. I very much appreciated the coffee machine in the common area and Elda provided so many options for breakfast and snacks, it was amazing! Juice, cakes, spreads, cereals, milk, everything you would need!
The apartment is full of information about local sites and places to eat and visit and Elda can point you in the right direction as well.
There is street noise, but I challenge you to find a place in Trapani (indeed in most of Europe) where street noise is not an issue. Just travel with earplugs!
The only possible issue is that, if your party does not fill all 3 bedrooms, you will have some close encounters with fellow travellers in the common/eating areas. Decide for yourself if this is ok!
If you will be in Trapani (and you really should go!), Terrazze Villanova is THE place to stay!

Terrazze Villanova is the best place I have stayed in during all of my travels in Europe!! The owners Elda and Vito are extremely nice, welcoming and make you feel like you are a part of their family. The B&B is modern and beautifully decorated. Each room has it's own private bathroom, all brand new and modern. This particular trip I treated my parents to a trip in Italy and we all stayed at Terrazze Villanova and it was perfect. We had our privacy of our own bedrooms and bathrooms, but a beautiful common area for relaxing and a gorgeous patio with lemon and tangerine trees. Terrazze Villanova is perfect for a group or even single travelers. Elda makes the most fantastic breakfast cakes and there is great coffee for a nice breakfast. Everything is brand new, VERY clean, modern and comfortable. There is everything you could need, internet, air conditioning, heating, great towels and even a mini makeup mirror. They have thought of everything you could want in a B&B. The location is perfect, on the main street of Trapani and Elda and Vito will help you with anything you need. I don't normally write reviews on trip advisor, but this place was so fantastic I had to share what a wonderful experience I had. I love Trapani and will definitely go back. When I do I would not stay any other place, Terrazze Villanova is by far the best place to stay :))

Terrazze Villanova is a great place to stay!
Everything is brand new as Elda and Vito opened their business in August 2011. Set up with marvelous taste, every room has a bathroom, airconditioning, a TV, and everything you could ever need. The rooms are spacious, the beds are soft, everything is very clean! Me and my boyfriend felt extremely comfortable staying there!
What is more, Terrazze Villanova is better than a hotel! Apart from your room that you rent, there is a huge living room with a terrace for your disposal where you can eat breakfast and drink a coffee.
The location is really good, it is right next to Via Fardella which takes you straight to the centre. However, the windows face the other street so that you don't hear any traffic.
We couldn't be more blessed with the owners. Staying there for 3 days we already became friends Elda and Vito. They are very friendly, kind, funny, and what is the most important from the tourist point of view, flexible and trusting people.
To sum up, we had a marvelous time in Terrazze Villanova, I will most definitely recommend this place to anybody. Don't hesitate, you will have an amazing time there!
