Elegant Apartments in the Historical Centre of Palermo. Free WI-FI, Air-Con, Sat-TV, Fully-equipped kitchenette, and much more!
Our Apartments are elegant, fully-equipped and charmingly furnished in an elegant Mediterranean style. They are located in a distinguished and totally refurbished building (with elevator) of the end of the 19° century, situated in the Centre of Palermo, 5 minutes walking from POLITEAMA THEATRE, the main square of the city and the heart of Palermo Centre!
The location is perfect as a base for visiting the best shops of the centre, cafes, bars, Arabic-Norman churches and every architectural and historical treasure of Palermo, all of which are very close by. A short walk will take you to the Massimo theatre, the Archaeological Museum and the hidden marvels of the city! Night life is exciting as well: shows and concerts are nearby!
Vacation Rental Property
We are also very close to an old and traditional market called “Borgo Vecchio”, in which you can find all kinds of typical Sicilian products (all that you will NEVER find outside Sicily - trust me, I speak out of experience...) and also the best fresh fish, just caught the night before!

My name is Enrico, I am a retired engineer. Upon retiring, my wife Valeria and I thoroughly refurbished a building in the centre of Palermo to create ten delightful small apartments. In truth, much credit goes to her, who made a point of making each apartment unique and different from all the others.
We love meeting new people from all over the world and introducing them to the beauties of our own city. Most of all, our goal is to make people feeling truly at home.
This is the reason of the low prices we ask. When I started I did not mean to "set up a business" with these apartments: it was a dream, not a business. Our dream was to encourage people to explore Palermo and fall in love with Sicily, without having to spend a lot of money or sleep in cheap, ugly and remote places. Or, worse of all, fall into some "trap" - things looking great on paper but actually dreadful in reality. Palermo is stunning, but to enjoy it you must feel like home - possibly without spending much.
The easiest way to arrive:
Getting out of the Airport, walking 30 meters on the right, you will see the coach "Prestia e Comandè", which starts every 30 minutes, and takes about another 30 minutes to arrive. It costs 6.50 euro per person.
Get out at the "Porto" bus stop, which is just behind Politeama Square. Then, walking with the seaside on your right, in 120 meters you are arrived!
On your left side you will see a street departing from the Seaside, called "Corso Domenico Scinà". Our Apartments are at the n. 27.
