Très bon séjour

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un très bon séjour dans ce bel appartement, lové dans un palazzo rénové avec soin et décoré avec goût. Avec ce pied-à-terre situé plein coeur du centre historique, nous avons pu visiter les églises, musées et autres merveilles patrimoniales dont Palerme regorge. Cerise sur le palazzo, une bibliothèque éclectique invite à butiner de-ci, de-là. Et nous avons pris autant de plaisir à arpenter les monuments qu'à bouquiner tranquillement à la "maison". Encore merci à Virginia. Nous recommandons vivement cette location :)

I am a frequent traveller, and this has been the best experience so far. Wide, clean, cosy, and very elegant interiors: so charming view and details.

The apartment is located on the last floor of an ancient Sicilian palazzo, just nearby the Cathedral, in a very practical spot, from where to wander around the ancient city. Dozens of restaurants and bars nearby, but VERY VERY quiet. The ideal for a restful holiday.

Virginia is the best host. She will give you the best advice for sightseeing, eating, chilling in Palermo and the outskirts. There could be no better Amphytrion.

I will recommend the listing for families, couples and groups of friends willing to spend a 5 stars holidays in one of the best cities of the Mediterranean.

Thank you so much Virginia!!!

Appartamento simpatico e accogliente

  • 5 of 5

L'appartamento, situato all'ultimo piano di un bel palazzo storico, è ben arredato e pulito, include una cucina pratica, aria condizionata e due bagni, e dispone di un'atmosfera di charme. Un altro suo vantaggio è la sua posizione: si trova dirimpetto alla piazza del Duomo e così è anche vicino alla stazione ferroviaria, alla stazione degli autobus e ad un'altra piazza dove passano tanti mezzi publici per i dintorni della città. Nonostante la sua situazione centrale l'appartamento è molto calmo, nessun motorino disturba il sonno di chi ci dorme. Già queste qualità farebbero dell'appartamento una base ideale per ogni visita turistica. Ma c'è di più. La padrona di casa, una signora precisa, colta e gentile, ha composto un «manuale» con tantissime informazioni utili su tutto quello che un viaggiatore potrebbe interessare: dal numero di telefono per il pronto soccorso fino a indirizzi di ristoranti, incluse anche proposte per delle gite e persino l'indicazione del bar dove si compra il biglietto... Questo manuale è un vero tesoro. Se ricordiamo il nostro soggiorno a Palermo con tanto piacere è anche perché ogni sera potevamo tornare in quest'appartamentino simpatico e accogliente. Da consigliare senza riserve.

Owner's Response: La ringrazio molto per le sue parole e per il suo giudizio. Eravamo sicuri che vi sareste trovati bene nel nostro appartamento e nel quartiere: qui infatti sono concentrati quasi tutti i monumenti e i luoghi d'interesse storico-artistici della città, e per quanto Palermo sia poi una città piuttosto rumorosa, nostra la casa è tranquilla. Facciamo il possibile per dare ai nostri ospiti tutte le informazioni e i consigli necessari per facilitare e rendere gradevole il loro soggiorno a Palermo, teniamo che abbiano un buon ricordo della loro vacanza in Sicilia: vi aspettiamo di nuovo, insieme ai vostri amici!

Appartement idéal

  • 5 of 5

L'appartement est situé en plein coeur de Parlerme, à quelques secondes de la Cathédrale, à un quart d'heure à pied de la gare. Pour autant, il est très calme. Le bâtiment où se situe cet appartement est lui-même magnifique, les escaliers sont en marbre... Il est très vaste et tout à fait charmant. Grand salon avec belle cheminée et canapés confortables, salle à manger, deux chambres, dont une superbe sous les toits, deux salles de bain toute neuves (dont une avec baignoire, l'autre possédant une cabine de douche). La cuisine est grande et comporte tout ce qu'il faut pour cuisiner. C'est bien simple, on s'y sent tout de suite chez soi! A noter aussi : on capte parfaitement France 24, la chaîne française d'informations internationales. La propriétaire des lieux, Virginia, est elle aussi parfaite: amicale, avenante, cultivée et discrète. Elle prend le temps de vous recevoir. Elle a confectionné pour ses chanceux locataires un chef-d'oeuvre: la liste des bons plans à Palerme. Meilleures pâtisseries, meilleurs glaces, meilleurs restos, adresses en tout genre, etc., pour tous les goûts et toutes les bourses. L'artiste Christian Boltanski parlait de "petite mémoire" pour désigner tous ces éléments de la vie que nous avons en tête et qui sont ô combien précieux. Virginia nous en fait ainsi cadeau. Nous avons testé certaines adresses: on ne peut plus fiable! En outre, Virginia, qui parle un français parfait, habite sur les lieux, ce qui est très commode en cas de problème (nous n'en avons eu aucun). Bref, je recommande chaudement cet endroit qui est proposé, last but not least, pour un prix tout à fait raisonnable.

Owner's Response: Je garderai de vous le souvenir de personnes calmes et discrètes, cultivées, qui aiment découvrir le cœur des choses et des gents. Des merveilleux locataires. Vous avez l'esprit ouvert des vrais voyageurs! Et aussi, merci pour vos bons conseils. Je vous remercie de votre appréciation, notre maison est ancienne, elle a été rénové avec beaucoup d'amour pour les vieilles pierres et pour mettre à l'aise ses habitants, leur offrir un havre de paix dans cette ville bruyante et assez indisciplinée... Palerme est une ville assez spéciale et il faut la découvrir: avec mon petit guide, j'ai cherché de donner les instruments pour se repérer et trouver les bonnes adresses. En citoyenne de Palerme, je tiens à que mes hôtes et les visiteurs de la ville parviennent à profiter en peu de temps et au mieux de leur séjour ici, les aidant à avoir un aperçu de l'histoire, l'art, la culture et la gastronomie. Nous sommes heureux quand nous trouvons des hôtes qui apprécient nos efforts!

Also, Monreale's amazing mosaics reachable from the very close Piazza Indipendenza.
