The apartment is on the top floor of an historical building in the heart of Palermo. Over the period of 10 years it has been lovingly restored and renovated by a half Italian/half British family who let it out to other guests when they are not using it.
The apartment is accessed by its own private bridge from a neighbouring building. Inside it has been done up to the highest standard with natural stone floors throughout and marble bathrooms.
The large, brand new, solid oak kitchen has all modern appliances (including dishwasher and wash-machine), generous storage and natural stone worktops-perfect in case you want to do some Italian cooking in the comfort of your own apartment! The open plan living area has two balconies and a ceiling that reaches up to 8 metres high; spread over 40 square metres it’s bigger than some one bedroom apartments! There is a mezzanine area overlooking the living area for reading and relaxation with a (growing) library with Italian and English books available for guests. This area has also a desk which combined with reliable internet connection, makes the flat great for a business trip/working holiday or longer stay.
The master bedroom has traditional antique Italian furniture (an original 1920 bedroom set from renewed local artisan Ducrot) with a brand new comfy lattice mattress and a beautiful Travertine marble en-suite with shower. The bedroom also has a mezzanine area with a dressing room. The second bedroom consists of a sleeping area (with a divan bed sleeping two) and a delightful reception/dressing area accessing a small terrace. Finally, there is a further bedroom with a convertible single/twin/double bed. The main bathroom, also in natural stone and marble, has a second shower.
As there are three sleeping areas and spacious living space, the flat would suit a large family or group, up to three couples, two young families travelling together or just a couple wanting plenty of space in a great location.
We will supply you with bedding, towels and toiletries. The kitchen comes fully equipped with all the pots, pans, cutlery and crockery you might need in case you become inspired by walking around Ballaro’ market. There is a genuine Italian espresso machine and a kettle should you be more of a tea person!
There is air-conditioned in all three bedrooms and central heating (a rarity in Palermo city centre!) so the flat is suitable for all year round and great for longer stays.
This new and large apartment with fully equipped kitchen, large living space, two bathrooms and three bedrooms is fully available to the guests.

Другие важные подробности
We love children and we will be happy to provide you with a cot, high chair toys and books on request; let us know if you may need anything else for your little ones and if we can help to make your luggage lighter or your trip easier we will! Children younger than three years old can sleep for free in the cot provided. However be aware that the flat is on the second floor of a historical building so cannot have a lift.
While this apartment has been entirely renovated, the neighbouring building that give access to the flat still needs restructuring so the entrance to the building and the outside of the building in particular looks scruffy!
However, if you can live with a scruffy exterior appearance and a couple of flights of stairs, then we'll warmly welcome you to stay in our beautiful, central, amazing value for money apartment.
No smoking/no pets/no sadness
SWITCH OFF THE AC WHEN YOU LEAVE THE FLAT (we would hate to harm the polar bears!).

Please respect the apartment and its contents as it was built and furnished with love!
