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 really enjoyed our stay there. Apartment is clean, quiet, very close to beach (3 min walk) and also very close to supermarkets (less than 10 min walk). Very convenient little place if you self catering.You find everything you want from butchers, fishmongers, bakers etc just a walk away. Restaurants , both seafood and pizzeria are very good. There is a tour organiser in the town Centre if you want to explore Sicily, prices are quite alright. Most important the owners are very helpful, kind and welcoming. They can't do enough for you. Few days after our arrival Liza brought us a nice basket of beautiful fresh fruits and pastries from local bakers. It was a very nice touch. Can't praise them enough. Lovely helpful people and made our holiday very special. Thank you Giovanni & Liza 😀 (Sabina & family)

All mod cons really, and the WIFI was a real bonus to occupy a little down time for the kids. As the for the huge roof terrace, well that is the real winner. We had cook outs up there, sun bathing, cards with kids and the sunsets were something special. We were 2 adults and 3 kids for 2 weeks around Balestrate. The food, beaches, snorkelling and people were all fantastic. We couldn't recommend it enough.

The pictures do not do the accommodation or location justice. We normally always do so much sight-seeing but this place was so tranquil, beautiful and perfect we did not want to leave!!! The sea is so calm, fantastic to snorkel in and amazing temperature. It literally sparkle’s all day (you will understand this when you get there, mesmerizing). The accommodation is well decorated and maintained, the balcony gives you a private VIP experience all day and fab to eat out in the evening. The terrace is huge!!! There is not anything that is not accommodated there for you. The hosts were friendly and informative, to the final detail of providing local recipes for home dining Sicilian style on the balcony in the evening. Shooting stars join you to make you feel that you really are in an amazing place. Sight-seeing, you are in a good location for seeing lots. Cefalu was our favourite, worth an early start and late finish. Thank you xxx
