What makes this apartment unique

The flats are conveniently located in a quiet alley in the heart of the old town, off Corso Vittorio Emanuele, a 2-minute walk from the majestic Cathedral, within 5-minute walking distance from the stunning Norman Palace and the Palatine Chapel, a few steps from the popular Ballarò and Capo historical markets and very close to the most famous sights in town: Piazza Vittoria, Quattro Canti, La Martorana Church, San Cataldo Church, Casa Professa Church with its well-known polychrome marbles, a great example of Baroque Art, and also, modern and contemporary art galleries and a number of ancient buildings. Finally, the world-famous Massimo and Politeama theatres, refined examples of Palermo’s modern architecture, can be easily reached on foot or by bus from the bus stops nearby.

The central railway station, with regular trains and coaches to the airport and the main destinations in Sicily, is only 15 minutes away.

Palermo has been included in the Unesco World Heritage List since July 2015 for its Arab-Norman monuments, a series of nine civil and religious structures dating from the era of the Norman kingdom of Sicily (1130-1194): the Royal Palace, the Palatine Chapel, San Giovanni degli Eremiti, Martorana and San Cataldo churches, La Zisa Castle, the bridge called Ponte dell’Ammiraglio and the Cathedral churches of Palermo, Cefalù and Monreale. All the monuments in the list are within very short walking distance from our flats, with the exception of the Cathedral in Monreale, which can be easily reached by bus from Piazza Indipendenza, just a 5-minute walk away, and the one in Cefalù, which can be reached by train from the central railway station.

Collectively, these monuments are an example of a social-cultural syncretism between Western, Islamic and Byzantine cultures on the island which gave rise to new concepts of space, structure and decoration. They also bear testimony to the fruitful coexistence of people of different origins and religions.

Great Spot!

  • 5 of 5

This is a top notch place to stay in Palermo. Just a few steps from the cathedral and in the heart of the historical district, we found most of Palermo's sights within walking distance. And the apartment is huge!!! It is on multiple levels, is very comfortable, and has a great garden out back that is perfect for morning coffee or wine in the afternoon. Also, the apartment is very secure. Highly recommended.

cocon douillet au coeur de Palerme

  • 5 of 5

Santa Ninfa ,studio au décor raffiné et chaleureux bien équipé pour un court séjour : le matériel est impeccable ( seul le pommeau de douche pourrait être remplacé ) ,quelques aliments de base indispensables pour démarrer le séjour et on se sent tout de suite très à l' aise .Alessandra a prévu une petite attention pour notre arrivée ...sympa ! documentations sur Palerme et environs sont à notre disposition ,adresses utiles ....pizzeria Frida à ne pas rater !!! entre autre .

Un grand bravo pour l'accueil d' Alessandra qui est venue nous chercher ( Palerme compliqué en voiture !) et nous a piloté jusqu'à l'appartement ,indiqué et trouvé une place de parking . la voiture n' a plus bougé pendant 4 jours car Palerme se visite à pied . Le studio est idéalement situé au cœur du centre historique et aucun centre d'intérêt n'est loin . Cette position centrale permet d'être immergé immédiatement avec plaisir dans la vie palermitaine ..très agréable !

Bref nous n'avons que du positif à transmettre pour cette location et l'accueil ,rapport qualité /prix parfait .Palerme entre ses palais ,églises ,musées et autres marché est unique et la Sicile dans son ensemble et sa diversité est magnifique et très accueillante . Et si on revenait ,c'est ce que nous nous disons depuis notre retour

Huge, beautifully appointed apartment in Palermo

  • 5 of 5

My family and I absolutely loved this sprawling, fully equipped apartment in the heart of Palermo. Alessandra is a reactive and highly professional hostess. I especially appreciated the useful visitor information she provided us upon arrival. Ideally located between two fantastic markets! We had such a good week in Palermo, in large part because we were so comfortable in the apartment. I cannot wait to come back and spend more time in this remarkable city.

Nous avons passé 4 nuits avec nos trois grandes filles dans cet appartement magnifique, très vaste, mêlant le charme des vieilles pierres qui restent apparentes et tout le confort moderne.

On y dort parfaitement bien car il protège des bruits de la ville et la literie est de très bonne qualité.

Tout est d'ailleurs dans un état impeccable.

Il est très appréciable d'avoir 2 salles de bains et c'est merveilleux de pouvoir profiter d'un jardin en plein Palerme . Alessandra vous expliquera où vous garer si vous êtes en voiture (à 50 m de l'appartement !).

Ce n'est pas la seule chose sur laquelle elle vous renseignera car elle répond à toutes vos questions et même à celles que vous ne vous êtes pas encore posées : elle vous remet une documentation très utile sur les sites à voir, la façon de s'y rendre, les restaurants et leur fourchette de prix.

En conclusion, cette location est en tout point conforme à sa description et nous laissera un souvenir extraordinaire.

Peut-être existe-t-il au cœur même de Palerme un logement tout aussi agréable et confortable que celui d'Alessandra. Je doute toutefois qu'il soit à la fois plus central et moins cher.

Meublé avec un grand goût, particulièrement vaste confortable et bien équipé cet appartement ne nous a laissé à regretter que le caractère trop court de notre séjour. Et son seul inconvénient pour le touriste est qu'on n'a pas trop envie de le quitter surtout par les jours de forte chaleur pour se lancer à l'assaut des multiples curiosités de la ville qui se trouvent pourtant à deux pas. Ni de fréquenter les multiples restaurants proches.

Enfin l'accueil d'Alessandra est parfait. Tout est hyper propre. Et sa réactivité très grande.
