The flat is located in the most exclusive area of the town, that faces the sea and the fair, and is situated on the first floor. It takes five minutes walk from ferries to villa s. giovanni and ten minutes by tramway from the train station and downtown (the tramway stop is Trapani).
It is composed of two bedrooms, one with a bath inside, a bathroom, and a wide living room with veranda.
The rooms are very comfortable: Air conditioning, self-governing heaters, wi-fi, led tv, music and nespresso coffee machine in junior and senior suites. The bathroom has a whirpool bathtube, modern sanitary ware and furniture.
The junior suite of my flat is 16 mq wide, it has a cozy double-side memory foam matress inserted in a wooden oak-like bed, soft led lights, a wide wooden-mirrored closet toghether with a vintage sewing machine used as a small desk for pc-tv set an italian designed lamp and a comfortable eco-skin easychair.
The room is bright and silent because it faces the inner condo tropical garden, far from the typical city noise. A wide and contemporary kitchen is shared with guests. The living room is used to watch the tv or listen to the music or take a book or a guide from the library. With a small benefit it is possible to use the washing machine.
Exceptional! I stayed one night at Federico's apartment in April 2014: the room was spotlessly clean, the bathroom was enormous and clean, with an excellent shower; the kitchen, wifi (a Macbook with tv is also at your disposal), all the utitilies worked perfectly. The apartment is very well-located: directly across the road from the tram line on viale della Liberta', it is a few minutes' walk to a supermarket and to the traghetto/ferry which will take you to and from Reggio Calabria and Villa San Giovanni. It's just around the corner from a superb restaurant (Agrodolce) and a number of other shops are either directly beneath the apartment block or close by. Your room will overlook a lovely garden and the apartment itself has a sizeable balcony overlooking the sea. It's very quiet and your host, Federico, is extremely helpful. The apartment's more like a four-star hotel and I was wonderfully suprised to find it. I'll definitely return if I can!
What can we say that hasn't already been said? Federico's flat was just as described- warm, clean, quiet, and welcoming. Even when we emailed and said we would be arriving hours before we had agreed on, he instantly replied and allowed us to check-in early and leave our bags to go sight see. The bathroom was absolutely THE cleanest we have found in Italy and my husband even remarked that the bed and pillows were so comfortable he wanted them at home! Breakfast was tea, cereal, and toast, very nice. When we return again to Sicily we'll of course stay again. You'd regret not staying with Federico and his kind mother. Ciao!
(Just note that as in all of Italy everything has a hint of smoke, didn't bother us as it wasn't strong, but just to note.)
I stayed at this apartment for one night in January 2013. Federico offers you a room in his lovely home in Messina, which he shares with his mother. Nice accommodations, very friendly folks.
Mi sono sentito come a casa!
Federico e sua mamma sono due persone squisite.
La stanza è molto confortevole, apprezzatissima la macchinetta del caffè sul comodino :-)
