Maria, the owner took care of me from A to Z. She had bought pastries for me and put coffee for my convenience. She also kindly made me visit Palazzolo with her. The apt is nice and has everything and more.
The place is in a great location; just off the main square but parking is difficult.Some of the interior architectural features are beautiful;However:
We were coolly let in by a caretaker who left before we noticed there was only one bath and face towel to share for the two of us and a quarter roll of toilet paper. The place was so damp I had to empty the already full dehumidifier three times in a 24 hour period.
The bed and bedding ,including the thin, thread bare sheets ,were so cold and clammy we chose to sleep in some of our clothing on top of it all with the extra blanket.
The fridge was hot and unplugged and all the handles and pulls in the scant kitchen were sticky along with the dirty light switches and food spattered trash can.The only meager supplies in the kitchen,appearing by their half used condition,were left by the previous victims.The bedroom window backs up to an alley where some of the towns teens congregate until 2AM.There was nothing welcoming or respectful to guests here.Security is also poor;my wife forgot the keys and I was able to open the door in a second with a credit card.The price was low but I would not call it "right"
Great place ,great price and just off the main square .
Only problem is that its a bit hard to find as there is no sign. Best to Phone maria for directions.
Ideally centrally located for excursions around Palazzolo and the other country towns. This apartment oozes character. As you step into Calore Colore you'll feel this ancient building embracing you with all it's history of this ancient land. Spartanly but tastefully decorated this apartment being an old " Tammuso " storage place is a cool and inviting place out of the summer day heat. Relaxing inside you'll feel the town going through its gentle pace and the murmers of the locals while the town clock bell chimes. Step out and enjoy the wonderful food at the many cafes with delicious sweets renowned through out the region and the restaurants with excellent quality food. Ideally located near the Piazza and il Corso where the locals meet.
Thanks Maria for your charming and warm hospitality.
