It's an amazing apartment, very stylish, well equiped, all newly renovated, big enough for 6 people or more, it makes you feel at home. It's in a historical building that was being renovated at the time we were there. And right in the centre of Palermo, which makes you feel the heart of the city. And top of all, our host Roberto is extremely kind and helpfull, he welcomed us with fresh fruits and cookies. If I were to come back to Palermo, I would definetely stay there again.
Oh my goodness, where to start?! Palermo is full of gritty palazzo, superb street markets and decaying opulence. This superb, high end, stylish apartment is in the perfect location to give you a true taste of Palermo. Arriving in one of the oldest parts of Palermo, in the Balloro market, you’ll come to a palazzo that’s being restored. Going up to the apartment through your private entrance, you’ll be met by a stylish, beautifully decorated and finished, comfortable 3 bedroom apartment with ensuite bathrooms (the tiles are to die for!). Balconies give light and air. A well appointed and kitted out kitchen means buying the freshest of ingredients only steps away from your front door then attempting to recreate a delicious caponata. Roberto is quite honestly the most welcoming host I’ve ever met. He is passionate about this part of Palermo and the delights it holds. He told us about special events in the area, the best places to eat at a range of styles and prices, where to get the best cannoli in Palermo (then he took us there and bought us some!). He was always available in person or by message to help us out with answers too. To say we didn’t want to leave is an understatement.
I’m already planning the next visit!
Renovated and fully equipped apartment with a taste of history. Quiet location and very close to the old and famous Ballarò market (a 2-minute walk!).
Bedrooms are clean, comfortable and provided with a full bathroom. The living room is huge and luminous.
Roberto welcomed us so well, and was very helpful and accommodating.
