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.

We woke up to an incredible view from the terrace, one that just got better and better. The property is obviously loved by its owner and we found it very comfortable. We loved the area which is not touristy and explored during the day and returned to the wonderful terrace in the evening. Thank you for letting us stay. Regards Lynne Day

The villa was very clean and well equipped and surprisingly spacious. The gardens were spectacular and we enjoyed many hours chatting in the sun. The location of the villa is excellent, walking distance to the beach, restaurants and cafes and a short bus ride or drive into the center of historic Palermo. However, it was the never ending help and support of Giada and her family that was most notable, coming to our rescue on many occasions, including when we got lost on our first night. We cannot praise them enough. Thank you for a most memorable family holiday and your Sicilian hospitality. Fiona and Ben.
