About Enrico & Valeria
Hi, I am Enrico, a retired engineer. I take care of these apartments together with my wife Valeria, a retired German teacher. Upon retiring, my wife 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. Our daughter Gabriela, a 33-years old painter with Down syndrome, has helped out too, as she painted all paintings in the apartments. That's the team!
Enrico & Valeria purchased this Apartment in 2000
Why Enrico & Valeria chose Palermo
We love meeting new people from all over the world and introducing them to the beauties of our own city. Our goal is to make people feeling truly at home. 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!

Our elegant apartments are 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 square, the main square of the city, right in the heart of the Historical Centre.
The bus stop to and from Palermo Airport is just two minutes walking (the coach stops by every 30 minutes). Our proximity to a major bus hub also allows quick easy transportation anywhere in the city and its surroundings.
The location is perfect as a base for visiting the best shops of the centre, cafés, bars, pubs, Arabic-Norman churches and every architectural and historical treasure of Palermo, all of which are very close by. Night life is exciting: shows and concerts are nearby! The central location, right in the heart of Palermo, enables our guests to truly immerse themselves in the city’s thriving cultural landscape.
We are also very close to the oldest and historical open market of Palermo, called “Borgo Vecchio”, in which you can find all kinds of typical Sicilian products, and also fresh fish, just caught the night before!
Each apartment has free Wi-Fi, Air-Con, Sat TV, fully equipped kitchen area, linen and towels included, laundry facilities.
