'Purple' (neighbour of RED, also on O.D.) is the penthouse of an old, very clean, building overlooking the historic market of Porta Carini. This 4th floor walk-up is quiet, full of light and has no neighbours. Flat consists of entrance, bathroom, kitchen/sitting room and bedroom/study. A large terrace off the kitchen, has a beautiful view overlooking Carini market - -dining, lounging & barbecuing. Elegant furniture, fist class linens and crockery, top range cooking utensils with modern amenities (WIFI, Sat TV, multi system DVD, washing machine, IPOD player). Just unpack and enjoy the freedom. Ours is a home that will make you feel at home. Located five minutes from Palazzo Massimo, the epicenter of Palermo, one does not need a car while staying here (but there is parking nearby). For your leisure, included in the price, a housekeeper comes for 1.5 hours Monday-Saturday. If you need to chill in the sun or love markets and cooking or want to dig in and visit Palermo, this is the place.
Hello future guest, I have lived and worked around the world and know what it is like to look out the window and feel the need to want to get away to a beautiful, exotic (but not too), sensory filled, interesting, sunny, place. I learned to appreciate renting a flat rather than staying in a hotel - -no matter how upscale. However, I was often disappointed with the decor, the quality of the linens, the style.
When I came to Palermo I decided to create a 'home' as I would like to have it: elegant but not overstated, with a good kitchen, good quality crockery and linens and good art on the walls. I wished it to be quiet, full of light and airy. And I wanted to be able to eat outdoors, under the sun or the stars, with a view of the city before me. I hope to have achieved that, for you.
We stayed in John's apartment for 6 nights and really enjoyed our stay. The apartment was well equipped, clean and cosy. We also loved the location: close to the main attractions of Palermo and located in a nice and lively neighborhood. We didn't see John because he was traveling, but his friend helped us perfectly. John also responded very quickly by email when we had a problem with the Internet. Definitely recommend this place!
Aparment very nice. Possesses all conveniences.
Excellent location. Within walking distance of all the main places to visit in Palermo.
For those wanting to experience Palermo in a real setting above the Capo market life and want to avail themselves of the wonderful produce to cook themselves, this is it. Eating on the roof terrace in the setting sun was the only place to be on a warm evening with the sunlight hitting the Cathedral spire and the views to the mountains around. The apartment was well equipped and cleaned twice weekly and there was someone downstairs available for any requests. The owner provides a complete guide to the area, the apartment and restaurants. We ate in most evenings but during the day street food is the way to go. The apartment is very nicely decorated with some nice antique pieces and the owners photographs on the walls. I would recommend the property to my friends who are interested in self-catering. A word of warning, there are four flights of stairs to the apartment, not the best for luggage.It would be ideal for groups who enjoy wine and food as you can also rent the adjoining apartment.
L'appartement est particulièrement bien situé, dans une rue de marché vivante et très bien achalandée. Regorge de produits délicieux à des prix défiant toute concurrence. L'appartement est confortable et on sent qu'aucun détail n'a été laissé au hasard par son propriétaire qui est un homme de goût et de culture. La vue de la terrasse offre un concentré du charme de Palerme: les collines au loin, des clochers d'église, une façade d'église très patinée par le temps... Gentillesse, efficacité, tranquillité, nous nous sommes sentis très loin de Paris et absolument chez nous. Un séjour particulièrement réussi.
Amazing place and the perfect holiday home. Right in the middle of a fantastic market with lovely views from the terrace and balcony, but also quiet at night. Plenty of nice restaurants within walking distance and no real need for a car. Charming appartment with lots to keep you interested, well equipped kitchen and library. Free Wi-fi. Very helpful taxi service provided by owner and well informed recommendations regarding restaurants and bars. Perfect home for a fantastic holiday.
We hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
Mike and Jenny.
