New 60 sqm (640sqf)APT in historical center,wifi,fully equipped,marina view (balcony-table),walking dist.to restaurants,pubs, food markets,10min central station.Furniture is handmaded by UPcycling sicilian materials with unique style and Eco-approach

The space

"UpARTment" because the flat represents the essence of the Art of Upcycling. The apartment has a simple and unique contemporary style because furniture is mainly handmade by upcycling local sicilian objects and materials and by collecting ancient objects at sunday street markets (that takes place 2 min walking dist. from flat, in Piazza Marina) with a super Eco-friendly approach. A contemporary style is also given by pieces of art realized, on upcycled cartonboard or on other reused objects, by emerging local artists (LLP). The long process of selecting, reusing, composing, assembling and at times handcrafting most of the appartment furniture was inspired by the fact that in 1500 the neighborhood was populated by handicrafters that made wooden fruit boxes (casse) and other wooden objects from which the street name (Cassari=wooden box handicrafters) originated. The materials used to renovate the apartment and the entire building also reflect and reproduce the ancient usage of white wood (roof) and marble balconies.

Guest access

The apartment has an indipendent access from a small street that ends right in front of the fascinating old marina which can be seen from the apt.'s big balcony where you can also have breakfast.

Mariella was a very charming host and made us feel extremely welcome throughout our stay. The apartment was exceptional, beautifully laid out and meticulously clean, and even better than the photographs! The apartment is very central to many local bars, restaurants, marina and tourist attractions. Palermo has a lot of charm and outstanding architecture. My husband and I had a wonderful stay there and would highly recommend it.

Mariella è una host eccezionale! Disponibilissima, gentilissima e molto attenta alle esigenze dei suoi ospiti. Il suo appartamento si trova inoltre in una zona molto centrale di Palermo, ottimo sia per un breve viaggio di lavoro che per vacanza. Lo consiglio al 100%, io sono stata molto bene qui :-)

We love traveling as much as hosting because in both cases you learn to demolish prejudices of all kinds. When we do not have the chance to travel we host because we feel like sharing our Sicilian culture and our passion for upcycling materials and objects. Other than a funny hobby, Upcycling leads to the symbolic meaning of cleaning up our land from its bad reputation, bringing to life its best side such as the gorgeous Roman, Greek and Arabic heritage and culture.
