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.

She is very unobtrusive and the pool was the best we have seen. Views are stunning and the lounging and eating space is copius. The covered terrace is massive, breezy and cool.

Virginia, the owner, is friendly and helpful. .
