About johann Micallef
My name is Johann Micallef. I am from malta and happily married to Margo with two lovely kids.
Why johann Micallef chose Trapani province
There are no real words to fully describe the people and the area. We have friends there and have been going to this village for the past 20 years, in which the only difference we saw in all this time was the villagers and our own facial lines in the mirror increase.
It is an area full of culture and the cuisine has a thousand flavors.
What makes this cottage unique
I have a busy life, and when ever i am there i manage to let my mobile's battery drain without charging it again. I usually run about with two mobiles always ringing!
The time runs slower there, at least that is how i feel as the relaxing holiday always comes to an end faster than i can beat my eye lids.
The peaceful and tranquil setting, the birds singing and not hearing any other noises makes my mind clear out of the past and helps me to look to the future with more enthusiasm.
I enjoy visiting again and again the surrounding areas as they too have seldom changed.

Buseto Palizzolo is a quiet province in the southernmost tip of South Europe. The cottage is the perfect starting point to visit the Trapani province, as all the places of interest are between 20min. up to less than 1 hr drive.
The beautiful town of Castellamare, roughly known as the sea fortress because of the medieval castle still guarding the harbor together with the medieval town of Erice have a special lure to them that makes time stop. The white sands and turquoise waters of San Vito and the sea polished pebble beach of scopello make one feel in a forgotten paradise.
Trapani is an ancient city and a natural shore in the Mediterranean for all countries on North Africa. The older part boasts of a colourful fishing port which is next to old salt mills home to migrating birds.
The whole area is a place of encounter and confrontation, bearing the marks of cultures and religions. A trip to this province, not only offers the opportunity to enjoy a unique hospitality and a loose notch on one's belt with the good food, but also opens the boundaries of knowledge to cultures in human evolution. Here you can walk through the traces left by the Phoenicians, Greeks, Arabs and Normans.
The island of fragments,the archaeological parks of Selinuente and Segesta testify the importance of religion in past civilizations.
Mazara del Vallo,Castelvetrano and Salemi with their Arab-Norman buildings not only are traced by historical periods but bear witness to human and cultural integration.
The countryside from Alcamo up to Marsala, contain the footprints of those agricultural transformations implemented by the Arabs, and the whole province of Trapani with it's natural reserves, coasts and it's islands are a treasure not only environmentally but also cultural.
The great wines being produced, the renowned olive oils, fishing techniques and the past cultures mingled with a Mediterranean cuisine with a thousand flavours makes this whole area a gastronomic paradise
