Auguste Escoffier: "Good food is the foundation of true happiness"
The great Escoffier was right!
A nice breakfast in the morning prepares you to spend an exciting day
The glass of orange juice
The croissant (chocolate or yellow cream or ricotta cheese) and fresh bread from the baker
The organic jams: (figs, mulberries, lemon, tangerine, orange)
The fresh sheep's ricotta
Butter and yogurt and fruit
Coffee, tea
This is the basic breakfast but sometimes there are more surprises!

Area city center
The House of Argo is a B&B personally run by the proprietor and located in the sea town of Trapani, very close to the Tower of Ligny and the local fish market. The building dates back to early 1900 and it is a fisherman’s typical house.

Every morning fishing boats return to the harbour followed by seagulls flying behind.

When the wind blows you can smell the sea while sitting in the terrace, where a delicious breakfast is ready for you.

Take your swimming gear and have relaxing swims under the Tower of Ligny. From there you can enjoy one of the most impressive sunsets of Sicily. The place has an emphasis on peace and quiet. Walk in the pedestrian precinct of Trapani Baroque town centre and enjoy a romantic evening along the city walls of Tramontana overlooking the sea.

On the following day a trip to the Egadi islands is a must. At five minutes’ walk from the B&B there is the port of Trapani, where you can take a hydrofoil to Favignana, Levanzo and Marettimo. Moreover, a ten minutes’drive will take you to one of the most fantastic sights nearby: the Saline, salt-pans with windmills standing behind against the skyline, a stunning view in the moonlight; there you can also see flamingos in the water if you go for a ride early in the morning.

It will take you thirty minutes’drive to reach the isle of Mothia with its interesting museum, rich of Phoenician remains. You should also visit Marsala, a town famous for its excellent wines and wine cellars, where visitors can try some of the best ones; also the museum deserves a visit and you can admire a Punic ship there.

The House of Argo is conveniently situated for public transportation. A few minutes’walk takes you to a bus stop where you can catch a free bus to piazza Vittorio, and from there you can take bus 23 to the cable car station to Erice, a charming medieval village on the hill. Near piazza Vittorio there are the central Railway station and Coach station. The Segesta coach company runs buses to Palermo almost every hour. The airport of Birgi can be reached in twenty minutes
by car and a bus service is available from and to Trapani.

a discount is also granted to guests booking over 4 nights.

Argo, my dog, is waiting for you!

Clean, charming home with good sized room and private bathroom across the hall. Enzo, our genial host, lives on the premises so always available. He was most helpful in suggesting restaurants, day trips and providing local colour. On our late afternoon arrival he immediately took us to the nearby port for a coffee and best view of sunset. In our talking with Enzo we also found he is very knowledgeable about opera and ballet if you are interested (which we were).

Enzo and his dog, Argo were amazing hosts. Enzo was incredibly hospitable and went above and beyond the duties of a host. He helped us tremendously with our various travel arrangements and was a charming conversationalist. He was very generous with his time and with the information he imparted. We enjoyed spending time with him and we enjoyed the accommodations, especially the rooftop terrace.

We had an amazing time at 'La Casa di Argò B&B. Our host Enzo was extremely welcoming and has exceeded all our expectations. His knowledge of both the city and surrounding area was very helpful to plan our daily visit when in Trapani. The room and the apartment itself are charming and have plenty of character. We felt very comfortable and at home. The B&B is positioned in the fishing quarter and it is very close to great restaurants, the port and the center of the town. We highly recommend to stay at this B&B and fully enjoy the hospitality of Enzo, Argo and his friends. Patrizia & Helen.

Just came back from our holiday in Trapani and have to say that our stay in B&B La casa di Argo was really exceptional. From the moment we arrived, the welcome and service we received throughout our stay was superb. The rooms and all place is gorgeous and so stylishly done. The view from terraces and location can not be beaten as this B&B is located in the most convenient and delightful part of the city – in old fisherman quarter, where sea is at your fingertips and you are still right in the heart of things and can walked everywhere. This place is a true gem as it has amazing atmosphere and we really enjoyed our stay here. We really did not miss staying in a hotel and having the bills every time we wanted a cup of tea or glass of wine and just enjoyed privacy, freedom and feeling like locals. We were also equipped with bus and boat schedules, information about the city and places we wanted to visit, with suggestions where to go for dinner as well as with weather forecasts and phone number in case we needed anything. And Enzo very unobtrusively checked in with us each day to ensure we were happy. We've never stayed somewhere so perfect before, so can highly recommend this place.

This B&B was very nice and has 2 pleasant companions (the owner and the dog Argo). The owner is very helpful and hospitable and is good english and german speaking. The room was clean and beautifully decorated. There are beautiful views of the surroundings and nearby island from the terrace. The terrace is tile decorated. Breakfast was delicious. Everything was perfect and every time again.

Un accueil extrêmement chaleureux comme si nous étions des amis et une vue imprenable sur le port des terrasses de la maison. Les céramiques, tableaux ou sculptures donnent un charme fou à cette maison. Nous avons passé de très bons moments avec Enzo. Merci beaucoup à lui.

Se conosci Trapani, saprai che quella è una posizione magica. Una lingua di terra che si allunga verso il tramonto, quando ogni tramonto è un incanto. Ad un passo dal centro storico e dalle migliori granite della città, se la sai apprezzare Trapani regala sorprese. Ed Enzo, il gestore del Bed and Breakfast, è sicuramente una delle sorprese migliori. Attento e disponibile, ti fa sentire a casa.

Io e due miei amici abbiamo soggiornato per 3 notti in questa struttura di cui devo solo dire cose positive, ambiente molto piacevole ed originale di buon gusto specialmente i magnifici terrazzi, pulizia impeccabile, colazione ottima abbondante con prodotti locali ottimi, e che dire del nostro ospite, una persona eccezionale per la sua cultura, i suoi modi e la premura. Ci siamo sentiti come a casa di un amico.

Ottima scelta, ed eccezionale ospitalità e cortesia. Si può parcheggiare nelle immediate vicinanze del B&B, la zona è in centro, tranquilla ed accogliente, con trattorie, bar, ecc. Vicina all'imbarco per le isole Egadi.

L'accoglienza, l'ospitalità e la gentilezza di Enzo il proprietario, ci hanno fatto sentire coccolati oltre ogni modo. Siamo stati "in famiglia" con lui e il suo cane Argo per una settimana. Lo consiglio a chiunque abbia a cuore i rapporti umani. Gianluca e Sabrina.

Siamo appena rientrati da una breve vacanza a Trapani e ci abbiamo lasciato il cuore. E gran parte del merito va a Enzo, gentilissimo proprietario del B&B che ci ha accolto con grande cortesia. Ci ha invitati a cena nella sua stupenda terrazza (una delle tre!) e intrattenuti amabilmente col suo amico Carmelo (e i dolcissimi cani Argo e Pipillo). Una persona squisita che si è fatto in 4 per rendere il nostro soggiorno un vero incanto. Una persona di grande cultura che con la sua spontaneità e generosità cattura i suoi ospiti. Le colazioni strepitose, l'arredamento di grande gusto, la posizione ottimale e vicina sia al centro che ai traghetti (noi non avevamo mezzi!).

È stato amore a prima vista quando ho visto in internet la foto di Argo ed Enzo, questo sarebbe stato il luogo ideale per il mio breve soggiorno a Trapani. All'arrivo, da subito ho capito che il mio "fiuto" non aveva sbagliato. Alle nove di sera, io ed il mio compagno abbiamo incontrato Enzo che ci ha condotti con la sua auto al B&B. Stanchi dal viaggio chiediamo un posto dove poter cenare ed Enzo, con fare disinvolto ci risponde: "Stasera si cena in terrazza". Non potevo credere ai miei occhi: un calice di vino ghiacciato ed una cena da Re, in un contesto magico, a stento ho trattenuto la commozione. Che dire poi dei giorni successivi, con al risveglio le sontuose colazioni, servite con classe ed eleganza. Ma tutto ciò non sarebbe stato possibile senza Enzo uomo di grande umanità e cultura, Argo cane mite e fiero e Carmelo gentile e premuroso, individui unici, dal cuore immenso. Sono grata per tutto ciò che ci avete donato. Linda ed Ago.

In posizione strategica per visitare tutti i siti del trapanese La Casa di Argo è altamente consigliabile per la cordiale ospitalità del gestore, per la qualità degli interni e per le splendide terrazze. Ottima e abbondante la colazione. Ottimale il rapporto qualità / prezzo. Da scegliere senza alcun dubbio, specialmente per viaggiatori che apprezzano la cultura, i particolari e il calore umano.

La Casa di Argo è deliziosa con le sue stupende terrazze e che dire di Enzo, un ottimo padrone di casa, una persona ricca di cultura, disponibile, gentile, una guida squisita! Il difetto della Casa di Argo??? La colazione. Troppo buona e abbondante da assaporare in terrazza in completo relax! Un'esperienza sicuramente da ripetere!!! Vanessa e Marco.

L'appartamento ha una posizione invidiabile, in centro e a due passi dal mare e dai traghetti per le isole. Il proprietario è particolarmente ospitale , noi abbiamo apprezzato anche il suo simpatico e discreto cane. L'appartamento è arredato con semplicità e gusto. Lo consigliamo anche per coppie con bimbi... p.s. colazioni fantastiche!!!!
