The space

Hello, I'm Paola, many of you already know me and It’s thanks to your decades appreciations I make this new proposal.
The nest is a modern 40 square meters loft, completely renovated, close to the historic marketplace, "Il Capo". Just turn left and you can visit the most elegant part of the city (The Massimo and the Politeama Theaters, Via Libertà, I Quattro Canti, the Salinas Museum etc.) or turn right and hike through in the most folk side of the town (Beati Paoli road, the old markets, the Royal Palace, etc.). And if you want to have a swim, take the bus and go to dive into the crystal waters of Mondello. Its location also allows you to go on trips in the surrounding area: Monreale, Cefalu, Ustica, Trapani, etc.
And when you come back in the evening you can choose whether to go home to rest or have dinner or a drink in many places close to the appartment. And in the night. The "nightlife" is at 10 minutes walking as well theaters and cinemas.

Guest access

The apartment has all the essential comforts. The sofa bed was specially chosen to guarantee you an exceptional rest. The mattress size is double standard (160 x 190 cm) in latex with anti-stress Magnets, super comfortable.
In the apartment you‘ll find several tips to organize your days (opening and closing times of the sites, bus timetables, recommended places, etc.) And I will be happy to provide all the information you need.

Interaction with guests

When you arrive in town I’ll pick you up at the bus stop / metro. Much information is already available in the apartment. On request you can book in-room breakfast and even lunch or taxi, motorbike or bicycle or boat and even tour guide.
The apartment is in a central and peaceful area. Close to tourist, shopping, cultural and bureaucratic sites. Market, boutiques, pharmacies, and bus stops are very close. Inside the apartment you’ll find tourist guides, topographic map and bus and ferry timetables.
I’m waiting for you.

Exactly as described and clean. Very walkable to many places and many shops near by (street vendors and brick&mortar) a grocery store 2 blocks away was great too. Paola was gracious enough to inform me of an Italian law that requires hosts to report the occupants (or face fines and possible jail time), so be ready to give some information contained in your passport. Would easily recommend. P.S. the sofa bed is comfy

We really enjoyed our stay at Paola's apartment. At first sight the area looks a little deserted, but the location turned out to be very convenient. The market is literally just around the corner and it's a nice short walk to the main shopping street downtown. Paola was a great host and picked us up from the bus station. She gave us some useful advice on what to do. We would definitely recommend staying in her place.

The entire apartment was really clean and nicely decorated. The host welcomed us with open arms and even made us freshly baked cookies as a welcoming gift :) The apartment is right in the city and it takes about 5 minutes by foot to go to the shopping street. All in all we really enjoyed our stay and are definitely going to return to Palermo.

Paola was great with communication and welcomed us on arrival, the apartment had tidy layout with basic amenities. Unfortunately the wifi was not working during our stay. Apartment is located very close to city centre, just near a market so easy to explore Palermo!

Paola was very accommodating to our needs during the check in and check out, which made the experience much much better. The place is close to the centre so it is easy to move around by feet. It was clean and tidy at arrival. It is a great little place for a couple to spend a few days.

Amo la mia città e desidero farla conoscere a tutto il mondo. Da poco tempo sono in pensione e mi dedico a questa attività con maggiore disponibilità. Mi piacciono i giovani e le persone curiose e dinamiche con cui scambiare consigli e informazioni.
