All mod cons really, and the WIFI was a real bonus to occupy a little down time for the kids. As the for the huge roof terrace, well that is the real winner. We had cook outs up there, sun bathing, cards with kids and the sunsets were something special. We were 2 adults and 3 kids for 2 weeks around Balestrate. The food, beaches, snorkelling and people were all fantastic. We couldn't recommend it enough.

Near everythng, <10 min walk from Politeama square where the airport bus stops. The landlady dud a really good job if making me feel at home right away. So helpful and nice I couldn't have asked for anything more. I sincetely recommend this lovely place if you're headed towards Palermo!

They helped us with parking our car near the apartment, which is not so easy in the centre of Palermo. Then we were welcomed by own prepared lemon cake which was so warm and really delicious - Valentina, you are great cook :-) Apartment is wonderful and our daughter, who is really demanding, was delighted. You can get everything what you want and need in the rented aprtment. Strongly recommended!!!
