I would rate Virginia's apartment in Palermo as the best holiday accommodation we have stayed in. It was a perfect12 night stay in every way for our family of five. The apartment is very generously sized and elegantly and tastefully decorated and located very centrally, with many attractions and restaurants within walking distance. There is ample reception and bedroom space, a well equipped kitchen and two separate shower rooms which made for an extra comfortable stay. The apartment is set within a courtyard in a fabulous building steeped in history. Virginia was a fantastic host and super helpful in sharing her local knowledge of excellent places to eat and interesting attractions to visit. Palmero is a gem of a place to visit with it's wealth of history, magical Sicilian spirt and energy, wonderful beaches not to mention the arancini balls! We loved Palermo and are very grateful to Virginia for all her help in making this a truly memorable holiday and we hope to visit Sicily again.
This was an ideal flat for our first visit to this wonderful city. Located just at the edge of the main historical zone, we found it easy to walk to the things we wanted to see and did not need to take the free tourist bus. On street parking was easy to find. The flat is spacious and comfortable with a traditional vibe that we really liked. Francesca is an excellent host - very helpful and responsive. We can’t wait to come back to Palermo and will definitely stay at Francesca’s if we can.
