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.

The pictures really do speak for themselves, the apartment is fantastically equipped, spotlessly clean and as others have said the welcome pack is more of a feast. But it is Anne and Doug who quietly make the experience of staying here so stress free. They live locally so can be at hand if needed, they answer all questions (however trivial) with great patience and their passion for the local area is infectious. We had a really memorable and thoroughly relaxing 8 days here at the end of July and our only regret is that we couldn’t stay any longer.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

If you are considering whether the book it or not, our advice would be: 'book it.' We spent a wonderful two weeks here enjoying the sunshine and relaxing. The house is a fully equipped family home containing everything we needed, including some necessary air conditioning downstairs and in the bedrooms. There is so much outdoor space, the villa allows for time spent together, with personal space if needed too. We were greeted by Barbara and then her parents who left some delicious, homemade tomatoe sauce. Barbara, who lives just at the back of the pool, was invaluable during our stay: booking taxes; ordering pizzas; collecting from the airport; and even trips to the supermarket etc. She was always there when needed and everything was always 'no problem'. She certainly offered over and above what was required! A private villa with a local 'host' was a perfect combination for us.
