Wonderful apartment

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this apartment. It is truly a penthouse suite. The layout was perfect for our family of four including two children (11 and 14 years old). The balcony overlooking the plaza was amazing as were the views from the windows on the other side overlooking the gardens of the University. Fabrizio was a great host, very professional. He met us at the apartment and provided us with detailed instructions. He was also very responsive to our texts asking various questions such as the best local restaurant. He guided us to an amazing bakery, which we went to each morning. We also found a fantastic gelateria on the northeast side of square, one of the best we have gone to in the 6 months we have been in Italy. The apartment is very convenient to the old town. The square lies just outside the gate entering the old town. Overall, a great visit. I would highly recommend Fabrizio's place to anyone visiting Palermo.

An oasis of la dolce vita in frenetic Palermo

  • 5 of 5

The penthouse is very spacious and the huge private terrace offers a view in a million. The additional balcony to the back, off the living room also offers magnificent views.

Watching the world rush by from the privacy of the huge terrace is food for the soul. And by the way, look down the west side of the piazza, to the green awning. See it? That's where you need to grab your Palermitan street food from. Testagrossa Ristorante. Bummer, eh? such a long walk for some knockout panelle! Oh, and whatever you do, make sure you grab some arancini from Sfrigolo, which lies just outside the Porta Nuova gate, about 50 metres from the north corner of the piazza. You will be told that every place in Sicily does 'the best arancini', but rest assured, Sfrigolo is a genuine contender.

Fabrizio is a man of great honesty and integrity. He obviously works extremely hard in his day-time job in hospitality. And yet he invests every last bit of his energy in ensuring you are well informed and happy.

Once you tune into the fact that Fabrizio is not a typical host - in that he is not motivated by lucre first and everything else second - you start to appreciate what a heartwarming privilege it is that he lets you into his confidence.

As a parting gift, he gave us some honey from the village in which he was born and raised. I am not much of a honey lover (although I dearly love bees), but I tasted the crystal clear honey at home today, and Fabrizio, I have to say, you have converted me sir! I never knew honey could deliver a pleasant aftertaste minutes after you have sipped it. And as for the moka espresso maker, now you’ve gone and got me hooked, Fabrizio!

We could say more, but it's all been said in other reviews. We just had to get it out there, what a good human being Fabrizio is.

Owner's Response: Dear Jennifer, we have no words to thank you properly. What you have felt in your experience in Palermo in our attic is what we intend to do the difference (Luxury in the sense of a more attentive service than usual). We look forward to having you as our Guests next year, after the renovation, and don't forget to contact us directly whenever you want. A hug Fabrizio and Chiara

Great apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for four nights and it was a perfect choice for us. Fabrizio (the owner) met us and spent plenty of time showing us the apartment and advising us of local places to visit, restaurants, bars etc.

The apartment is large - far larger than we expected - and has a fantastic, huge terrace overlooking Independence Square which is the city's main hub for local buses and taxis. To the rear you have a second smaller balcony with an uninterrupted view of the mountains that surround Palermo.

Our bedroom was comfortable (and air conditioned) as was the large kitchen/living room. The kitchen was well equipped for a holiday let. Also the washing machine was a godsend after a week travelling round the island. We didn't use the second bedroom (with bunks) or the second bathroom.

As a location it could hardly be better. It is just outside the old town, so it feels like it's part of 'real' Palermo. It is ten minutes walk form the cathedral and walking distance to the fantastic street markets in town. The catacombs are a 20 minute walk. Buses and taxis to Monreale (which is unmissable!) both leave from the square outside, and the cafe on the square was a delightful place for a beer and/or a granita after a hot day's exploring.

Our only caution is that if you drive (as we did) there isn't dedicated parking. There is unrestricted street parking nearby, but you have to find a spot. When we found one (literally at the front of the apartment buildlng) we left our car there for the four days. If you do plan to drive, do a little research and ask Fabrizio to let you know where you can park.

Would we come back? Yes, without a doubt. A great base for a week (or so) in Palermo.

Amazing an unforgettable honeymoon in Palermo

  • 5 of 5

Me and my wife spent an amazing an unforgettable week in Palermo and Sicily.The apartment has really great location - very close to city center and old town as well as to the main highways, and you have guaranteed parking place as well. The apartment is spacious (for family with 2-3 children) and bright and with very good air conditioning. The views from both balconies are really magnificent. Also the hosts are very nice and hospitable, plus they bring you some necessary things like water and milk on arrival and brings very nice gifts when you leave. :)I would suggest Palermo Luxury Apartment to everyone who wants to visit and stay at Palermo.

Thank you Fabricio and Ciara

"Amazing view! relax, privacy and gay friendly."

  • 5 of 5

We chose to share with all of our experience in Palermo and we want to help these guys because they are working hard to do their best.

Me and my partner were looking for a house to spend a few days in Palermo, at the end of June. We chose this penthouse 'cause the scenic and green surrounding, fabulous!.

We got a plus , the warm and friendly welcome from the host.

We went to Palermo (we live in Milan) about bit of stress at work, and in this apartment we felt like at home.

Fabrizio has helped us in an excellent way all our needs (some grocerys', detailed cleaning service before arrival, directions and tips).

The apartment has been recently renovated, it can still improve, but overall it is beautiful! !!

I recommend to everyone to experience the simplicity, spontaneity and discretion of a friendly house.

PS: Palermo is very hot, we suggest to visit it at the end of summer, in Autumn, in order to enjoy your holiday.
