Description

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in Monte di Pietà

In the heart of the typical marketplace of CAPO, Casa Balmossière Chartroux has a very long history: now belonging to the ARENA BALMOSSIERE CHARTROUX family, it is located in building dating back to the XIV century; totally renovated at the beginnings of the XVIII century, it still shows the typical features of the sicilian rococò style. Once inhabited by the family of the painter Gaspare Serenario (1707-1759). After a long decline has been acquired and carefully renovated by the current owners few years ago. The apartment huge windows overlook the main street of the lively Mercato del Capo one of the most interesting spots in Palermo downtown, just behind the Opera House Teatro Massimo.

The House BALMOSSIERE CHARTROUX is located on the first floor and its XVIII century atmosphere not only jealously preserves pieces of period furniture but also offers to its guests an antique Harp ERARD dating back to the 1847 and an even more interesting Pianoforte ERARD dating back to the 1861, still perfectly functioning after being restored together with other strange small period musical instruments.

Like living in small Palazzo above a bustling and always fascinating traditional market

  • 5 of 5

If you like a beautifully furnished, large apartment with paintings, sculpture and art work above one of Palermo's largest markets, this is your place. The place is huge...and each room is elegantly furnished. The balcony looks over the Capo Market with vegetable stands, fish mongers, meat shops, cheese stores, bakeries...and everything else beneath. It's a 10 second walk to the bakery. Want prosciutto? It's another 10 steps. Also nearby to almost all of Palermo's major places. If you like cooking, you can whisk your market treasures to the kitchen which is one of the largest I've ever seen in Italy. Tradeoffs here are go hand in hand with being above the market: It can be noisy in the morning as the shop keepers set up and greet each other. For us, that was part of the charm of the place...but wanted to let you know.

Wunderbarer Wohlfühlort mitten in der Altstadt Palermos!

  • 5 of 5

Eine wunderschöne, stilvolle, sehr geräumige Wohnung, ja Palast, mitten in der historischen Altstadt, von der aus man morgens dem Markttreiben zuschauen kann. Von hier aus lässt sich Palermo bestens zu Fuß erobern. Die Wohnung ist sehr gut ausgestattet, so dass man sich auch bei längeren Aufenthalten fast wie zuhause fühlen kann. Der Flügel darf benutzt werden! Die Kommunikation war sehr unkompliziert und schnell und wir wurden sehr freundlich empfangen. Für Anreisende mit dem Auto gibt es eine nahe gelegene Tiefgarage für 8 € pro Tag.

dépaysement total

  • 5 of 5

On a le sentiment de vivre une autre époque dans cet appartement baroque, plutôt bien équipé (même si quelques chaises sont branlantes, mais cela fait partie de l'ambiance...) La situation au cœur de marché est exceptionnelle, bien sûr idéale pour se ravitailler, le pain frais de la boulangerie délicieux, les fruits et les légumes variés, à quelques pas ,on peut se régaler des spécialités de Palerme pour pas cher. Le propriétaire est charmant, il nous a accueilli avec de la confiture maison, des cannoli délicieux et s'est montré très disponible

Un excellent séjour dans un cadre surprenant

  • 5 of 5

Cette location ne ressemble à aucune autre; Extérieur d'apparence délabrée (comme tout le centre de Palerme) mais à l'intérieur ambiance rétro de maison aristocratique du XIXe (les murs sont en fait beaucoup plus anciens; d'ailleurs ils se fissurent un peu), pièces immenses, grand piano (qui mériterait d'être accordé), beaux tapis, consoles sculptées, gravures. Cuisine semblant équipée pour une grande réception, ne manquant de rien, pas moins de 91 verres à pied et des gamelles énormes ! Accueil très gentil, petites attentions très appréciées (torchons, savonnette, papier toilette et.. petits gâteaux, confiture).

Situation hypercentrale, on peut tout faire à pied (surtout pas en voiture !), en sortant de la maison on est directement dans le marché très animé (un peu de bruit le matin, normal); poissons frais, légumes, boulangerie. Bien repérer où est l'appart à la première sortie; pas facile de le retrouver dans le quartier quand on a bien tournicoté. Mais c'est vraiment près de tout...

Bref, un endroit original et un bon moment

Surprenant et superbe

  • 5 of 5

Appartement totalement improbable, immense, baroque, dans un quartier populaire et vivant, près de tout. Génial. Même si, comme à l'image de la ville, les plafonds se lézardent et les murs s'effritent un peu ! Dans l'ensemble cela reste très confortable pour deux !

Plus un accueil très chalereux.

Una grande vacanza

  • 5 of 5

La casa si trova in una zona caratteristica della città vecchia, proprio al centro di un mercato vivacissimo e fornitissimo. Tutti i luoghi di interesse sono facilmente raggiungibili a piedi. La casa ha un grande fascino, è molto spaziosa, tranquilla, e molto bene arredata. Il proprietario è gentile e disponibile.
