The location

To paraphrase Thomas Mann, reaching Trapani from the mainland is like stepping into a splendid palace through the back door. The city should only be reached by sea in order to fully appreciate how, under the dominant gaze of Mount Erice, the city elegantly bows to all the boats arriving in its age-old harbour.
The historic centre and the harbour area have been the heart and soul of the city of Trapani (also known as a city of two seas) for centuries, and it is in this area that the b&b "Ababordo" is located.

Just outside the B&B guests can happily lose themselves, as if in the streets of Venice, in the old quarter with its maze-like alleyways where you can discover interesting corners and picturesque views, as well as the magnificent buildings built in different epochs. The places surrounding Ababordo offer both a source of culture to the wanderer and picturesque walkways through which you can reach beautiful beaches, with crystalline water (just 300 metres from our B&B). When the sun slowly fades on the sea and the heat gives way to a fresh northwest breeze, the old town, is filled with subtle but unforgettable Mediterranean fragrances that envelop the traveller, boding of unique dishes, sublime flavours and PDO wines.

The management of the B&B

Annalisa Discolo was born near Naples in 1983 and after obtaining her high school diploma, she successfully completed her studies at the Accademia Della Moda. She quickly began working as a designer at one of the most important companies in the world in the sector of the production of Italian made fashion accessories. In 2010 she decided to follow her heart which led her to discover and fall in love with Trapani.
She therefore decided to buy a house there. One wonderful day in March, whilst looking out of the window and seeing a sailing boat docked on the "babordo" - "port" side of the harbour, she decided to create "Ababordo".

Guests at our B&B stay in rooms furnished with taste and attention to detail. The property features a large kitchen and a communal terrace where you can enjoy
a delicious Italian breakfast. All rooms have large windows (as do the en-suite bathrooms), from which you can admire the sea, the salt pans and the beautiful church of San Pietro.

The soundproof walls, the right level of air conditioning, the comfortable mattresses placed on wooden slat bed frames all guarantee a good night´s sleep, which essential for a good start to the day. To make your stay as pleasant as possible, each room is equipped with a 22´ LCD TV and wi-fi connection.
