About the property

A breathtaking view just a few steps from the center of Palermo

Beautiful loft located in the heart of the Natural Reserve of Capo Gallo. Recently refurbished in the style mediterraneo.La care in the choice of materials and its location make this apartment unique. The attic is located 15 meters from a small beach with crystal clear water, 50 meters from the cliff Barcarello, 100 meters from the Marine Reserve of Capo Gallo, with its pristine waters and nature trails. After a day at the beach or after a boat trip you can go around the shops in the center or the bus to visit the monuments of Palermo. In the afternoon we will alternate an aperitif on the terrace, with a happy hour in the numerous bars on the sea of sferracavallo, Mondello or of 'Addaura. And the last week of September, you can watch from the terrace to the famous fireworks of Saints Cosmas and Damian.

About Giuseppe

I'm happy to have you in my house to be able to show the Mediterranean hospitality.

Giuseppe purchased this apartment in 2000

Why Giuseppe chose Sferracavallo

If you love the sea with its scents you would not fall in love with this house. is what happened to me when I visited for the first time the apartment. A lightning strike that tied me forever to these places.

What makes this apartment unique

The finishing touches of luxury, location and view exclusive. You can 'live the quiet of a quaint fishing village without giving up the luxury of an upscale restaurant

beautiful location, but beware the access...

  • 4 of 5

This beautiful apartment overlooks the small working harbour that is the gem about 20 minutes from central Palermo. Be warned, this is not for those seeking a typical beach holiday. We both love speaking Italian and are ardent seafood we bought giant prawns and calamari and cooked outstanding meals for 10 Euros. We then hit the gelateria for a stunning ice cream. If you like to wake up to the sound of little fishing boats pop-pop-popping across the bay then this could be for you. Perfectly functional, clean and with a warm welcome, this place has stunning sea views from the lounge and from the main bedroom above. There is a caveat, however. The access is up 3 flights of tight stairs and then by a spiral staircase to the main bedroom. It just got a bit much (though we were fitter after a week) and at times we could not be bothered to pop to a shop. Seriously, this is a place for 2 fit adults who are not built like prop forwards. You have 17" to get upstairs to bed...or downstairs in the night!

So, not for young children or those less mobile... but a cracking place for an agile couple.

Highlights: great people but do try some Italian, wonderful overnight seafood stalls popping up everywhere, a super bakery, lovely local wine for 3 Euros, ice cream to drool for and a colourful city nearby. Day tickets by bus cost 3.50 (the 628) and are bought at the tobacconist. Buses also run to the airport (6 E) and the Greek temple of Segesta (about 45 minutes away)

Swimming: possible with care in the bay or better at Mondello 5 miles away

Access: you have been warned

Food: seafood heaven

Overall: we were delighted but the access drags 5 stars down to 4.

Owner's Response: Neil, thanks for the beautiful review. I was very happy to host your beautiful family and I am happy to have contributed to your wonderful holiday. About the apartment I remind you to have advised that the apartment is not suitable for a family with three children including a baby. In spite of this, I have provided you a highchair and a stroller that you can leave under the apartment. Moreover the cost of the apartment takes into account the absence of the lift. Giuseppe

Great apartment, great vista

  • 5 of 5

Giuseppe was there to meet me at the start of my visit and he was very good about answering any phone calls or queries. There is a limited internet provision which he tried very hard to help us with, but everything else was just perfect. Great view over the harbour, with a fabulous small beach and swimming just across the road. Great little kitchen, lovely terrace, comfortable beds and useful bathroom with washing machine. I absolutely loved my stay in this little fishing village and I would go back again and definitely go back to this apartment again.

Pioggia Vento e Tempesta

  • 5 of 5

Abbiamo trascorso nuovamente una Settimana in questo splendido tipico posto

che solitamente è un viavai di Barche e Pescatori.Dico solitamente poiché a causa del cattivo tempo i Pescatori hanno preferito

rimanere a terra ed insieme trascorrere le giornate uggiose giocando a carte .

Il mare tempestoso , il profumo del mare , tutto questo a pochi metri dal tuo balcone.

Che vuoi di piu'.Grazie Giuseppe per la tua ospitalità .Ci torneremo sicuramente.

centralt läge, fin utsikt, bra standard

  • 5 of 5

Vi trivdes jättebra i den lilla fina lägenheten nära kajen i den lilla fiskebyn. 53 trappsteg till lägenheten och ytterligare en spiraltrappa till sovrummet. Underbar utsikt över hamnen och havet från balkongerna.

Bra standard på kök och badrum.

Nära till bussar, butiker och restauranger.

Lämpligt boende för två hyfsat pigga personer med tanke på trapporna.

Kommer kanske återkomma till denna lägenhet för en lite kortare period nästa gång.

Den här gången stannade vi hela November
