“Comfortable apartment in the center of old Palermo”
Reviewed 17 July 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We spent a comfortable month in this centrally located Palermo apartment. Restaurants and shops are located nearby on the Corso Vittorio Emanuele as well as many of the major sights: Cathedral, Norman Palace, Quattro Canti, Piazza Pretoria, Ballaro market. Other major sights are only 10 to 15 minutes away by taxis which are readily available if you call.

The apartment has three bedrooms, three bathrooms, two dining rooms, living room with decorative fireplace and a fully equipped kitchen all spread over several floors. The furnishings are comfortable. Best of all are the two terraces with views of distant mountains and church domes. We especially liked the lower of the two terraces with its view of the church right across the piazza and all the potted plants. Although close to the center of things, the apartment is surprisingly quiet, especially the back bedroom.

This is a top floor apartment and there are quite a few steps to climb but we managed pretty well despite one of us having had recent knee replacement surgery. The only negative was not about the apartment itself. It was the unfortunately scruffy piazza that the building entrance faced. A bit of "tender loving care" would do wonders to improve this piazza. But we found that the apartment itself was a good home away from home for us.

“great location and lots of charm”
Reviewed 7 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful apartment. The apartment is located in the old historic part of Palermo, within easy walking distance of Palermo's famous historic sites. Our greeter, Michele was extremely helpful in orienting us with the apartment and made many helpful suggestions on how best explore the city. The apartment is very spacious and beautifully furnished with many antiques. The kitchen is fully equipped. There are two dining areas, three bathrooms, two terraces and two large bedrooms. The terraces each have wonderful views of Palermo. Just around the corner is a major street with lots of restaurants and stores with restricted traffic. Staying in this apartment is a great way to explore this city.

“100% Recommend This Beautiful Apartment!”

An absolutely perfect stay in this wonderful apartment! Looks exactly like the beautiful photographs, and the views from the terraces are absolutely unreal! Very well located for sightseeing and easy walking distance to Palermo's attractions, with many dining and shopping opportunities located right nearby. Michele is a fantastic host! He was very thorough, showing us everything in the apartment, answering all of our questions, taking time to sit with us and made a detailed map of where the apartment is in relation to all of the notable sights, and was always in touch and easily reachable. We were even given fresh fruit, water, tea, and even spaghetti and sauce to kick off our stay! The wifi worked perfectly for us, the apartment was very clean and comfortable, the air conditioning was welcome on hotter afternoons, and it truly felt like a gorgeous home away from home. We are so glad we chose this apartment, do not hesitate to book your stay here! You will not regret it!

“Wonderful in every way!”
Reviewed 16 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The location was fantastic. The apartment was really great - deluxe accommodations in every way. And the decks were one of the best we have ever had in our travels - very spacious and wonderful views. We spent much of the later afternoon and evenings sitting on the deck, drinking wine and enjoying the scenery.

Michele was really great to work with. Prior to the trip he and his assistant Marina were a great help in planning and setting communications. We arrived early and Michele changed his schedule to come and meet us. He spent a lot of time telling us about the area and giving recommendations on restaurants and sites to visit.

When we entered the apartment there was fruit, cookies, water and milk waiting for us. The unit is furnished very nicely and my wife felt spoiled. We will go back to this unit the next time we visit Palermo. Thank you for a wonderful experience!
