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.

It is equipped with a modern kitchen, good Wifi, TV. There are three terrace areas including the large one to the front of the building. We walked to all of the main attractions in Palermo. The attractions are good but there is as much to experience with just walking through the city and stopping off for a coffee, gelato or beer on the way! We did a bit of travelling to some of the areas surrounding Palermo which was good as well.

A simple, beautifully furnished, comfortable, well-equipped and clean apartment, with own entrance from the garden. We didn't cook this time, but there were good facilities for making a meal, and a table on the patio to enjoy breakfast in the morning sun. We had a warm smiling welcome from Carlo, who was on hand with advice and information as soon as we arrived. He gave us a quick orientation to Palermo and some top tips for what to see and where to eat (we ate at the very popular Bisso’s on both our evenings). The apartment was a lovely peaceful place to come back to after a day's sightseeing and at the end of an evening out. Carlo and Laura were very hospitable and generous in spending time with us and sharing about life in Sicily. All in all a fantastic start to our first visit to Sicily.
