This adorably refined nest for two will, thanks to its views over Palermo, the surrounding hills and the sea, make your holiday truly unforgettable. The apartment is situated in the historic centre of Palermo on the 4th and top floor (serviced by a lift) of a fine, recently restored town mansion directly overlooking, and with main entrance on, Piazza Bellini. It rubs shoulders with the fine old Santa Maria dell’Ammiraglio church, known as “La Martorana” and the splendid example of Sicilian– Norman architecture of the adjoining San Cataldo church with its red domed roof considered a symbol of Palermo. A short ally leads into Piazza Pretoria or “Piazza della Vergonia” (for the supposed shamefulness of its abundant nude statues) housing the Town Hall. The apartment is made up of a large open plan living room with breakfast/kitchen area. A modern wooden staircase leads up to the splendid panoramic terrace furnished with a table, four chairs and a large sunshade, a truly perfect place to enjoy the views over the city while breakfasting, or in the cool of the evening over a glass of wine. The separate bedroom and adjoining bathroom lead off the living area through open access. The apartment has been recently renovated, decorated and furnished with style as befitting its prestigious setting with the aim of affording a comfortable and relaxing stay in the heart of the old city.

My wife and I had a great experience in this apartment, it was just as is shown in the pictures. Paola met us at the apartment even though we were somewhat late arriving. The location was great, we walked everywhere. The apartment was very well equipped; Paola even got us a coffee maker and coffee prior to our arrival. The ambiance of the apartment was beautiful, with lovely artwork and bronzes. The furnishings were very comfortable, including the bed and pillows. In fact, we liked the foam pillows so much, we are buying them for our home. The upstairs terrace offers beautiful rooftop views of the city and the sea. We enjoyed watching the sunrise each morning from the east-facing full length windows. There is lots of natural light. The building was very secure with a concierge during the day in the lobby. The elevator worked great. The food in the restaurant at the entrance to the apartment was always good and the people friendly. We think anyone would enjoy this beautiful unit in a wonderfully remodeled historic building. There is so much to see, wine to drink and great food to eat.
Ten Days of Luxury Living in The Heart of Palermo
What an awesome experience! The location of the apartment is unsurpassed. The views from within and outside on the rooftop are spectacular. Truly luxury living in the heart of the city with ready access to the markets, shops and sights. When we come back to Palermo this is where we will stay.
Fabulous apartment in ideal location
Paola met us at the apartment and showed us around. She was very responsive when the internet didn't work and she had it fixed immediately.
The apartment is comfortable, airy, light, modern and well equipped with amazing 360 degree views from the terrace. I left a suggestion that she include a soft pillow for the future for folks like me who don't love memory foam. The bed was extremely comfortable.
The location is very central and we walked everywhere easily.
Our three nights in Palermo were very enjoyable and we were very grateful to have a lovely apartment to return home to after each day of exploring Palermo.
Leaving in history
My husband and I stayed with Paola in her beautiful apartment for a week. Originally when we booked apartment it had no reviews. After a few conversations with property manager I Felt comfortable reserving it. Apartment exceeded our expectations. The location could've not been better. We felt like will are leaving in history of Sicily. Apartment located in the old Balini theater.
Apartment was spotless and beautifully decorated. It felt more like home rather than a rental property .
We loved staying so much that we extended our stay in Sicily two more extra days To use apartment as the base when we travel to other towns. Thank you Paula for being so hospitable and providing us with an incredible home to stay while visiting your beautiful country ! Hope to be back !
