“characterful flat in characterful area”
Reviewed 26 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

The flat is in the old 'Kalsa' part of Palermo, characterised by some derelict old palazzi and buildings but also now some refurbished ones, as well as a series of historic buildings and museums open to the public. Nearby is a range of good and inexpensive restaurants and bars serving typical Palermitan food, as well as a great greengrocers, bread and grocery shops - and a Carrefour quite close if you want such a place.
The flat is comfortable with a mezzanine/first floor sleeping area, and looked after very well by the owner and other helpers.

“Good location, nice apartment”

My husband and I stayed in this apartment for one month and overall were very satisfied. We liked the location, which is in the old part of Palermo called the Kalsa district. We could walk to the grocery store, the train station, a great bakery, a very good café, etc. Several tourist spots are close by. The apartment is well equipped, but could use a few more electrical plugs. The big bed in the loft was very comfortable. The only drawback for older people might be the number of steps to get up to the apartment (42), and the number of steps to the loft (15 or so).

“Location, location, location!”
Reviewed 31 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

If you truly want to experience the Sicilian way of life this is definitively the PERFECT place!
My husband and I rented this apartment for 3 months as a home base to explore Palermo and Sicily. The location was awesome – the area is charming and fascinating and within walking distance of all the major sights and markets. The apartment had everything we needed to feel at home - besides the (obvious) décor, furnishings and the comfy bed, there was loads of storage space, lots of coat hangers, a full sized fridge, and a drying rack for laundry ( those little touches can make such a difference to your comfort level!) The neighborhood felt very safe and it was so much fun to shop at the street markets and be able to cook our own meals. There are lots of restaurants and bars nearby for the lazy days, and we had lots of those!
Pietro and his wife went out of their way to help us, we are so grateful to them and we will never forget their kindness.

Having Joy and Norman in our apartment for three months it was a real pleasure.
Each owner would like to have hosts as Joy and Norman.
Simona and I will remember their politeness, their kindness and their respect for our apartment and for neighbourhood.
When they lived our house even for short periods they didn’t miss to communicate it to us. And once come back they told with enthusiasm what they had visited around our beautiful Sicily.
We’ll hope to have them again in our holiday rental.
