Palermo Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 2/4. 1 bedroom centrally located penthouse apartment. Fully equipped, spacious yet cozy, lots of light. Air-conditioning and internet access. Its terrace overlooks open air market 'Carini' and is within walking distance of almost everything. There are several top scale golf courses in the area. Mondello offers windsurf, diving, tennis, open-air cinema, open air dancing, many good restaurants, pizzerias and snack bars. There is a wonderful game park for small children.

'Purple' (neighbour of RED, also on O.D.) is the penthouse of an old, very clean, building overlooking the historic market of Porta Carini. This 4th floor walk-up is quiet, full of light and has no neighbours. Flat consists of entrance, bathroom, kitchen/sitting room and bedroom/study. A large terrace off the kitchen, has a beautiful view overlooking Carini market - -dining, lounging & barbecuing. Elegant furniture, fist class linens and crockery, top range cooking utensils with modern amenities (WIFI, Sat TV, multi system DVD, washing machine, IPOD player). Just unpack and enjoy the freedom. Ours is a home that will make you feel at home. Located five minutes from Palazzo Massimo, the epicenter of Palermo, one does not need a car while staying here (but there is parking nearby). For your leisure, included in the price, a housekeeper comes for 1.5 hours Monday-Saturday. If you need to chill in the sun or love markets and cooking or want to dig in and visit Palermo, this is the place.

Further Details:

Palermo is a city of colours, flavours and tastes. The people are very friendly and the city is as safe as any large city. One can either walk or rent bikes or scooters. It can also be fun to rent a horse carriage for the day and see the city as they did in the 'old' days.

Food is a big part of everyday life. The open air markets (very fresh produce) of Il Capo, Ballaro, Via Sant' Agostino and Via Bandiera are all within walking distance. After the succulent pastas and special grilled fish dishes you will adore the amazing pastries, the ice creams, the rich, dense coffee, the unique bread with sesame seeds and the wide selection of Sicilian wines.

Gyms are within walking distance as is the posh shopping area (Via Ruggero Settimo and Via Libertà) and the cheaper old shops of Via Maqueda.

Day trips are easily organized and one can have unique experiences travelling not far from Palermo to towns such as Monreale, Bagheria, Rovine di Solunto etc.

The sun is also an important part of Sicily and one will want to go to the beach. The white sandy beach and port town of Mondello, with its lapis lazuli water to have the Gods of the Caribbean turn green with envy, is fifteen minutes away. One can rent two beach chairs and umbrella at 20 €. There is a very good restaurant, Sympaty, at the end of the pier, past the main piazza. Caflisch restaurant (eat in/take out & easier with kids), one of Palermo’s most outstanding patisserie, is also one of Sicily’s undisputed best. They serve an informal lunch under pleasant, shady, trees. It is three minutes from the beach. In the summer, don’t miss the sublime gelo di melone (watermelon gel). Extensive wine list.

Finally, for those who are slightly more ambitious, long day trips (with beautiful and interesting stops on the way) can be taken to:

Catania: 220km (A19 highway).

Trapani: 105km (A29 highway).

Messina: 230km (A20 highway).

Booking Notes:

3 day rentals to weekly rentals and more; see also the apartment purple (o/d) and the 'whole apartment' (o/d) - which can be rented together or individually.

Short 1 and 2 night stays are also available by request.

Amazing place and the perfect holiday home. Right in the middle of a fantastic market with lovely views from the terrace and balcony, but also quiet at night. Plenty of nice restaurants within walking distance and no real need for a car. Charming appartment with lots to keep you interested, well equipped kitchen and library. Free Wi-fi. Very helpful taxi service provided by owner and well informed recommendations regarding restaurants and bars. Perfect home for a fantastic holiday.

We hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

Mike and Jenny.
