Though the hour was late, we were met by car and brought from the airport shuttle bus stop to the apartment in the heart of the roman old town, where we were welcomed by Luigi, who introduced us to this spacious and well appointed apartment and left us several emergency contacts, none of which proved to be required. The apartment, close to a busy market, was nevertheless fairly quiet and there are views over the roofs of Palermo from the large balcony.
We lacked for nothing and enjoyed the bottle of wine Luigi left us as an introductory gift. He also provided us with useful maps and guides. The apartment was well equipped with two bathrooms and a large bedroom with plentiful storage. It proved to be a convenient base from which to explore the city on foot and by bus. Difficult to see how you could park a car nearby, given the narrowness of the lanes and alleyways in this crowded neighbourhood.
We had an interesting and enjoyable week.
The accommodation was beautiful especially the balcony to relax on. We enjoyed a great week in Capaci walking around the area and driving to visit Cefalu, Trapani and Palermo. The town is small but has everything you need in walking distance to either eat out or self cater with a couple of great bakeries and artisan Ice cream parlour round the corner. The ladies who dealt with our rental were very accommodating informative and helpful. We will definitely use this facility again.
