Interaction with guests
My family who lives just 2 minutes away from the cottage will always be available 24/7. I travel frequently , however I always have internet access so either by msg or e mail I'm available as well. Before the stay , i will be sending personalised e-mails about the regions secrets and depending on the guests visiting i will tailor make the information being sent so that every guest will have a hilly which will be remembered long after they go back home. This will not only make the guests feel at home away from home but will also leave a positive feeling around the cottage for future guests.

Casale dell Ulivo is a lovely two bed cottage set in a quiet olive grove. If you need a peaceful location to relax this is the place. Well equipped and the owner and her family were extremely helpful.

About the neighbourhood
This cottage is situated in a small village on the outskirts of Trapani city. It is a clean and quiet place where all the villagers are exceptionally welcoming towards tourists.

It has stunning views , being surrounded by olive trees, one trees, mountains and vine yards. The scenery changes depending the season , either golden green during wheat harvesting or brown when the vine yards are dormant contrasting with the vibrant skies of the Mediterranean climate.
Getting around
Getting around is fairly easy having a car, however all amenities can be race day foo in under 10 minutes walking.

To go out of the village there are 3 minor raids all leading to different locations , so taking either on will open th doors to different areas however they do not fork out again unless you travel more than 100 km. following a map is easy unless you have a GPS.

The keys will be collected from my house so that either myself or anyone form my family will take you to the cottage which is just 2 minutes away and show you around. This is done so that the guest always feels at ease knowing where the owner lives just in case something is needed.

following a booking , the guests will be sent a map of the area of the cottage which will be easily compared to google maps to familiarise oneself with the location.

Arriving to the cottage is easily enough following the directions of the GPS as this village is not in a remote area but central to every other location in Trapani.
