This Place Is For You...

  • 5 of 5

At the end of our three-week family Italian vacation, we spent two nights in Francesca's property, and we were delighted with the accommodations. Where to start?

First, the neighborhood...while the neighborhood looks suspect, we did not experience any problems. In fact, the neighborhood provided just enough of a immersion in the local culture, which we really appreciated. There is a mini-market around the corner, a street-food cart across the street, and two restaurants within a two to three minute walk (the restaurants specialize in seafood, so those travelers who desire that type of cuisine, you don't have to venture too far away). Also, there is a free tourist bus stop about a three minute walk from the apartment, which will take you to every important landmark in the historical city center of Palermo.

Second, the apartment...it is located on the second floor, with no lift, so travelers with a lot of luggage, please keep that in mind. Yet, it is only one set of stairs. The apartment can easily accommodate up to four adults or a family of five (assuming one individual is okay with sleeping on the couch). The mattresses were great--even better than the mattresses in the hotels that we stayed in during our stays in Florence and Venice. There was plenty of space for the personal items we brought with us for our stay. The shower, like all showers during our three-week vacation, was small. I did mention to Francesca about the limited amount of hot water, but she explained that the older systems, found in the historical parts of Palermo, are not suited for gas-powered water heaters; as such, the water heater is electrical and limited in the amount of water it can heat. So, to ensure that the hot water last for the needs of those traveling, you need to ration or limit hot water usage. But, do not let that be a deal breaker, particularly, if you plan on a summer stay, where the hot water may not be needed, as it was during our winter stay.

Lastly, a few words about the owner, Francesca...she was awesome. She offered to pick up my family and I from the Palermo airport and drop us off for our return trip (50 euros round trip). Francesca also spent time talking to us about her city and sites of interest. Francesca was so welcoming that we have made plans to return to Sicilia to stay at her property.

So...if you are the type of traveler that enjoys local culture, great accommodations, and a wonderful host, this place is for you

Owner's Response: Thanks Juan for the nice words! I would just like to make a couple of clarifications: As for the traveler with luggage, the staircase leading to the apartment consists of 17 steps. I personally help my guests to bring their luggage. It was never a problem! As for a fifth guest, as written on the site, I have the possibility of a comfortable folding bed with wooden slats and not the sofa, which is not intended to be a bed! Finally, hot water: the electric water heater (which has the maximum capacity of water, 80 liters) if it is used for particularly long showers, obviously the second person who has to take a shower will have to wait for it to fill with hot water. It therefore depends on people taking a shower and how much water they consume. The tank of the water heater contains 80 liters, making normal showers, this problem does not exist. I wish you a good continuation! Many dear greetings to your family!

Spacious and convenient!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very spacious for two people and would be more than adequate for four. There is no living room as such but the master bedroom is very large and so is the kitchen, and there's plenty of room for socializing. It's close to the port and the central station, and the historic sites are within a mile or so. There is some street noise (as everywhere in Palermo) but Francesca has invested in high quality double-pane windows and the noise is minor when they're closed. Two good street cafes with seafood right off the boat are just outside.

Lovely apartment, easy-going owner, good location.

  • 5 of 5

Francesca was very straightforward and accommodating to deal with, her flat is tastefully decorated, spacious and had everything we (a couple) needed. It's near the seafront, the interesting bars and markets, and central station is an easy 15 min walk away. We would happily return.

Beautiful Apartment and great location in Palermo!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this apartment in Palermo. Excellent location with clean comfortable bedrooms. Francesca the owner was so helpful getting us acquainted with Palermo. We are 2 couples and there was plenty of space and a nice kitchen. It is a bit difficult to find the apartment without help. Like everywhere in Italy the street signs are nearly impossible to use. When looking for this apartment, you'll see a church with St Anna's statue on the right side front, turn down the alley and you’ll find the apartment. The kitchen had everything we needed. The apartment was well within walking distance of the train station, about 6-8 blocks. We had one of the most memorable holidays we have ever had in Italy.We Loved our time Palermo! Ciao

Authentic Sicily

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this apartment with three young children for about a week. Massimo and Francesca are lovely people and very helpful. They met us at the apartment. We took a taxi from the airport because when we arrived it was late, dark and the kids were tired. The taxi driver of course overcharged us (75 euros). The bus terminal is within walking distance, 10-15 mins, and only about 6 euros one way.

The apartment is clean and has everything you should need. It is up one flight of stairs. There are restaurants around the corner so many locals (mainly older men) hang out and talk near the front of the building. The windows and wooden blinds keep out the noise which can last awhile in the evenings but it is generally quiet in the early morning. We slept well.

The apartment is located in the old part of town. It is very close to the botanical garden which is beautiful including many statues & fountains. Piazza Marina is also a short walk where you can find many restaurants. There is also a Carrefour grocery store nearby. We walked quite a bit but buses are also running all over town. I enjoyed walking around the city (kids too!) because there are so many beautiful old buildings and arches to see. A bus ride to Mondello is recommended.

Thank you for everything Massimo and Francesca!!
