Overview

Palermo Apartment Rental Photos and Description

three-bedroom apartment can comfortably sleep up to 8 people

The accomodation of the traveller willing to discover the lure and contrasts of Palermo, the privilege to reside in an aristocratic XV century palace still inhabited. Located in the old town centre, beside the Cathedral in Via Vittorio Emanuele, there's no better place to visit the city without efforts: from the old markets to the town landmarks across the ancient meandering alleys. Restored in 2012, Foresteria is equipped to ensure a comfortable and elegant stay, in a typical sicilian style and in a special location, for both families and groups of friends. 1st floor, 7 steps to descend after the entrance (not advisable for limited mobility people, wheelchair inaccessible). Three bedrooms - one equipped with a king-size bed, one with 2 single beds and a third small room with 2 single beds. Also, a sofa bed (double) in the studio-tv, that becames a separate forth room closing the doors. Living room, dining room perfect for a dinner party for 8, separate kitchen, 2 bathroom with shower, basin, bidet, heated towel rail and toilet. Electrical power is free until 3 kw/day; after we consider 0,40cts each Kw. We provide a new free internet hotspot connection, however, not for professional use.

Please specify, if any, the age of children:

Arrivals between 5pm and 10pm. unless specific arrangements; departures before 10am, unless specific arrangements.

About Virginia Fatta

The Owners belong to an ancient aristocratic Sicilian family.

Why Virginia Fatta chose Palermo

Specifically dedicated to those who appreciate residences of character, this apartment was once used by friends. Particularly suitable for lovers of history and charm of a residence of character in the historical center of Palermo. Ideal for those who appreciate the priviledge a stay in an authentic aristocratic mansion still inhabited with a long history and powerful foundations sinking remote origins in the Punic-Roman period. The entire house, who poured in a state of near-abandonment, has been renovated from the foundation to roof with great passion. We are now pleased to be able to welcome visitors to our city and hope to successfully guide them from the best starting point in the discovery of Palermo, which in the past was also a stronghold of Normans and Anjou...

What makes this apartment unique

We fall in love of our huge-stone foundation wall!

Antica, magica atmosfera

  • 5 of 5
Nonostante il nostro arrivo sia avvenuto a notte inoltrata per un ritardo dell'aereo, la signora Virginia ci ha atteso e accolti, gentilissima e affabile; l'appartamento bello, confortevole, arredato con gusto non banale, silenzioso e in ottima posizione, in pieno centro storico: nelle vicinanze, da visitare a piedi, i più importanti monumenti e tanti mercatini storici ; vi consiglio di non perder quello delle pulci, davvero a due passi, dove potrete sognare tra mille oggetti dal fascino antico... Per chi ama i libri, in prossimità della foresteria della cattedrale, tante piccole, meravigliose, librerie di libri usati! Bei giorni che lasceranno un'impronta nella nostra storia esistenziale!

Where the comfort embraces byzantine atmospheres!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at Foresteria, definitely The spot to visit the city's landmarks and markets...everything was indeed in a stone's throw. The apartment was large, shiny, quiet...nothing substantial was missing; not to talk of the medieval palace belonging to the owners' family. Ms Virginia was quite busy at that time, but she handed down lovely tips to hang around, on top for proper local cuisine.
Already missing Sicilian lush...we'll be back!

TO LIVE IN THIS PALAZZO WAS A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
The location is perfect, round the corner you find the cathedral, the main monumental buildings and streets, bars, restaurants, street markets, shops...it was beautiful to have dinner outside in several small and peaceful squares (piazze) sorrounded of palaces and taking pleasure of the excellent food.
The interiors of the appartment are absolutely clean, comfortable, functional and very nice decorated. The two baths and kitchen, with very good water pressure, are new, equipped with everything you can need, the bed linen are made of organic materials, there are big cupboards, a large size and modern TV, and many other convenient things. Living here has the charm of an old and historic building and the advantages of a modern and new flat. We enjoied the large, different spaces, lamps, sofas, pieces of furniture... and specially the exquisite and friendly relationship with Virginia Fatta who took care of us giving us all kind of useful and interesting information, really made us felt at home. Absolutely recommendable!

Wunderschöne Unterkunft im Herzen von Palermo

  • 5 of 5
Palermo war ein Traum, und das auch dank der fantastischen Unterkunft direkt neben der Kathedrale. Die beiden Wohnungen sind sehr groß, es ist alles vorhanden, was man braucht, um sich wohlzufühlen, sie sind gepflegt und stilvoll eingerichtet und sehr sauber. Besonders die Wohnung im dritten Stock hat ein Highlight zu bieten: den Ausblick auf die Kuppel des Domes und Umgebung. Vielen Dank auch an die sehr freundliche Aufnahme seitens der Besitzer. Grazie ancora per la Sua disponibilità, Signora! Ci siamo trovati benissimo, le case sono state meravigliose! Torneremo. Bis zum nächsten Mal! Arrivederci, alla prossima!

Le palais

  • 5 of 5
Très bel appartement en plein coeur de Palerme (on peut tout visiter à pied ou en bus). Idéal pour 2 couples avec ses 2 salles de bain. Les prestations sont "luxe" et l'appartement a un cachet bien qu'étant très fonctionnel. Bon accueil de la propriétaire.
