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.

Places to go on holiday in Palermo, Italy

Climbing Mt Etna, Europe’s most active volcano, is a hugely popular activity from a Palermo apartment, but you must seek the advice of experts before embarking on any trip to Mt Etna as weather conditions can vary, and thus make the trip very dangerous.

Weather in Palermo, Italy

Average temperatures in Palermo never drop below 12°C, making it a perfect spot to escape the winter blues. Summer is hot and dry, with average temperatures of 28°C, making the beaches of Palermo an instant attraction.

Cheap flights to Palermo, Italy

Palermo International Airport (PMO) is 30km outside of the city centre, but there are regular busses which will take you directly to the front door of your Palermo accommodation rental. Flying London to Palermo takes only a few hours, and you can be settled in your holiday rental villa in Palermo very quickly after leaving the UK, provided by Ryanair.

We would return in a heartbeat!

5 of 5
We had been planning our trip to Italy for months and at the last hour we decided to spend our time in Sicily. At the last minute we decided to spend our time in one spot for the week instead of unpacking and repacking everyday, traveling around the island. That's when we came across Anne & Doug's Villa Stefano. Anne & Doug are amazing people with keen eyes for detail who will spend time with you or keep completely away whichever you desire. They combine British sensibility with Italian romance to bring dash & panache to a small cozy villa with everything one needs for a long relaxing holiday. Honestly, whenever we needed something be it a hair dryer or a knife sharpener we would intuitively ask ourselves "well, were would one be" and there it was. Not mentioned in other reviews are the remarkable indoor and outdoor kitchens. Both fully equipped so one finds what one needs in either without having to constantly run between the two. Quality pots and pans made cooking a breeze with every imaginable utensil readily at hand. Anne offered to advise on restaurants before we arrived but I stated that I was looking forward to cooking during our stay specificaly using the bbq. The next message from Anne asked if I preferred wood or charcoal. Buckets of olive and almond wood awaited me upon arrival. I grilled chicken, pork tenderloin, veal chops, veggies and assorted meats outside and made risotto and pasta inside. We feasted like royalty! The beautiful terrace nearly triples the area of the villa's interior and has seven, yes seven different seating areas and the views are fabulous. We never left the mountain during our stay and Caccamo is a charming village just a mile away with 4 markets, 3 bakeries and several green grocers. There is no reason to leave but alas our stay ended much too quickly and as has been mentioned in other reviews, it is really hard to bid farewell to Anne, Doug & Villa Stefano. We would return in a heartbeat.

Wonderful apartment, fantastic location

5 of 5
Yes - the reviews are all true. I very rarely write reviews, as I can't usually give wholehearted praise, and Gina knows that I don't really use social media! But, in this case, I feel I have to. The apartment is absolutely lovely - spacious and well-equipped, with very thoughtful touches of oil, vinegar and herbs, tea, coffee and sugar. The drinks in the fridge were very welcome and saved us shopping for heavy things. The terrace is a lovely place to be. I really hope I didn't kill the plants - I have black thumbs not green ones! We really liked the location, right behind the Teatro Massimo, so very easy to find our bearings. We loved walking around Palermo, and would have happily stayed longer than our 6 nights, and it was lovely to be able to relax so comfortably and completely at the end of a tiring day. Although it's a top floor (4th) apartment there is a tiny but perfectly functional lift which is also very secure and safe. The entire time we felt safe, but particularly in the apartment, which is extremely secure. Thank you Gina for everything, especially letting us in earlier than normal check-in time and arranging taxis for us and booking L'Anciova - absolutely delicious and highly recommended. I'm still remembering the outstanding Spada dish.
