The structure has been used for a long time as accommodation with a total of 11 rooms and a stair lift. The old flooring, the typical stone walls, the presence of gas heating, and more bathrooms per flat are a unique feature for a property on the summit of Erice.
Erice, also called U Munti in Sicilian, is a medieval village in the province of Trapani and is located at the far end of the North-Western Sicily. At 750 metres above sea level, Erice boasts a breath-taking panorama. From the Balio Gardens surrounding the Pepoli Castle, the panoramic view stands above Trapani and its salt pans, and the Egadi islands on the one hand, and above the Cofano Mountain Reserve, the Castellammare Bay and the coast- reaching San Vito Lo Capo- on the other hand.
Where art, history and landscape meet, the summit of Erice keeps intact its medieval city centre, in perfect harmonisation with the same structure of the mountain as well as with the surrounding Nature. With a perfect triangular shape, the town is bounded by walls, towers and three Norman gates: porta Spada, porta del Carmine and porta Trapani. Moreover, if you walk down the streets, you are inevitably captured by the smell of the traditional pastry and by the colours and decorations of traditional craft products, such as carpets and ceramics.
The town is now well-established as one the main tourist destinations in Sicily. As a matter of fact, Erice is part of the circuit I borghi più belli d'Italia (The most beautiful towns in Italy) as an Honorary Guest.
