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.

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!

On the ground floor with a private car park at the rear, it is about 50 yards from the promenade/beach and a 5-minute walk into Cefalu old town. All the rooms are light and airy with plenty of space to move around. The flat was very clean and well maintained. Enrico is the perfect host. He was there to meet us, when we arrived, to show us around, and provided us with an abundance of food and drink to start the holiday off. There is also a supermarket about 50 yards away which provides all the essentials. (The review from Jacqueline S pretty much sums up this lovely apartment.) Cefalu is a wonderful combination of beach resort and historic medieval town, rich in history. The mosaics in the Duomo are dazzling and the piazza outside provides the perfect setting for breakfast/coffee or a drink later in the day. There are plenty of restaurants on the promenade and throughout the town; some have balconies overlooking the sea, giving a dramatic backdrop to any meal. The railway station is about a 10-minute walk up into town, so it is easy to travel into Palermo (about 1 hour). Altogether, this is a great base for a relaxed but varied holiday and we hope to return one day!
