Make a holiday rental villa or apartment in Palermo, Italy your home away from home

Palermo, on the Italian island of Sicily, has an undeniably eastern vibe, with bustling squares surrounded by sandstone architecture, influenced by the Arabs, Normans, Spaniards and Phoenicians, giving it a unique atmosphere and style, with fascinating sights at every turn.

Things to do in Palermo, Italy

It is hard not to get wrapped up in the energy of the Palermo city centre, where the maze of narrow streets overflow with shops, restaurants and Baroque churches, then suddenly open into flamboyant squares. The old city centre, the Quattro Canti, holds some beautiful historical gems, including the Cappella Palatina, the Norman Cathedral and the Palazzo Reale (Royal Palace), the finest medieval court in Europe.

The Convento dei Cappuccini catacombs make for mesmerizing viewing from a Palermo apartment, but it is best not to go around meal times as the corpse lines catacombs is more than slightly macabre.

However, if you would like a break from the break neck pace of life in Palermo city centre, the magnificent beaches of the Tyrrhenian Sea are waiting just a few miles from your self catering Palermo apartment. The atmosphere on Mondello Beach is quite different; relaxed and peaceful, where time seems to stand still, and you can while away many hours on the soft sand, listening to the water gently lapping the shore. Sferracavallo Beach is even more peaceful, and is backed by some excellent Palermo restaurants.

I chose an apartment which I hoped was well situated, warm and comfortable and we were not disappointed. Virginia was very helpful when we arrived in the evening, giving us tips on where to eat and what to see in our short time. The apartment was warm, large and very nicely decorated. It is located in a very central area within the old city and, although it is very close to tourist attractions, we did not hear any noise in the evening. I would certainly recommend the apartment to friends.

We were well received by Andrea in Elena's absence. the apartment was clean and everything worked including fast wi-fi. The location is absolutely brilliant and we walked to many of the sights and to the central station and bus stops. Thank you Elena and we will certainly recommend your apartment and if we return to Palermo will use it again.

Fourth bedroom is little bit small, suits for children more. There is all cutlery you could imagine in the kitchen. Beautiful front and back yard. Definitely need a car. There are couple local supermarkets near this villa. Beach is with rocks, not a lot of sand. This is really fantastic villa for the good amount of money. Highly recommended for everybody!
