The perfect place to stay in Palermo
We spent 3 weeks in this incredible apartment and loved every minute of it. To start with, Francesca is incredibly attentive, friendly, and helpful - going way beyond what we expected. She waited for us for two hours at the train station, when our train arrived late (and unfortunately due to MY phone problems, she did not get the messages I sent). Even after all that, and the late hour, she kindly spent a lot more time that night with us explaining the flat and the neighbourhood and outlining all the great places to visit, eat, shop in the Historic Centre and on day trips away. She then texted us regularly to check in that everything was ok, and see if we needed any help. She also went out of her way to help me figure out how to get a parcel that I had asked to be sent to the flat, enlisting one of the locals to speak to the mail carrier. She then arranged a driver, at a reasonable price, to take us to the bus station with all our luggage when we left.
And of course, then there is the apartment! It is truly beautiful - spacious rooms with soaring ceilings and very cool furnishings and decor. The kitchen is well equipped and we cooked quite a lot - mostly because it was so perfect to eat out on the delightful terrace. There is nothing like sitting under the clear Sicilian blue sky for breakfast, and at night by candlelight (though there is electricity!) The location is also perfect - away from the main tourist area, but only a few minutes walk away. You are just 2 blocks from the waterfront promenade for lovely strolls, like Palermo families do. And the same distance from the amazing Botanical Garden. We walked everywhere - the best way to see this city. We never felt unsafe - and yes, we did wander through back lanes. - day and night! The locals are friendly - and many were incredibly kind to us.
And as for noise - the apartment is incredibly quiet, because the doors and windows have great double glazing. We enjoyed the daily chatter of the locals in the streets when the balcony door was open - we felt like we were getting a taste of real Palermo life.
We would definitely stay again if we return to Palermo and will be telling all our family & friends to grab it if it is available. Thank you Francesca - staying at your place made our time in Palermo perfect!
Thanks Deb! You wrote a fantastic review! You have been exquisite guests! I hope to welcome you again! Good continuation of travel! A hug to you and Sam!
Property was exactly as pictures revealed on the site.Very pleasant and helpful host.
A Real Winner
Francesca is a real treasure and the apartment a real find. Staying in the historic district suited us perfectly—good restaurants and walking distance to many sights. The outside area was perfect for morning coffee and afternoon wine. Francesca provided lots of essentials in the apartment and went out of her way to get us help for our phones. This was one of our best VRBO rentals—a real memorable stay.
Top Marks for Francesca's Apartment
Top marks for Francesca's apartment in old Palermo. A gritty, genuine locality close to the seaside promenade, two street food restaurants, coffee and pastry stall and a fruit and veg shop. Other restaurants close by. An excellent base for accessing the old town - the location in Kelsa is about 15 minutes walk to the Quatre Canti. The first floor apartment is large with lovely high ceilings. It is well equipped and attractively furnished with interesting period furnishings, books, objects and art work. The courtyard has plants across all walls - a haven of greenery. Francesca can arrange a pick up and return to Palermo airport for a realistic fee. Overall a great base for the independent traveller. Better for two than four; there is only one bedroom.
Thanks Andrew for the nice words! However, I would like to specify that my apartment is for 4 travelers, in fact there are 2 comfortable sofa beds in the living room! Best wishes!
Wonderful host, lovely apartment
Francesca was a wonderful host. It was great to have her pick us up a the airport and show us around the apartment at check in. She was so helpful when we had logistical questions during our stay. The apartment is on a lovely quiet little alley off a piazza, walking distance to most of the things we wanted to see. There are great street food options right there and easy access to the bus and the rest of Palermo. We loved our stay and would recommend to others. thank you!
From April 1st, a free shuttle service "Free Centro Storico", also called orange, was put into operation, connecting Independence Square to Piazza Cavalluccio Marino at Porta Felice, along a large part of the main streets of the historic center. This line has a frequency of one run every 11 minutes, the first part at 6.35 and the last run at 21.00. The closest stop is the Palazzo Abatellis.
