My husband and I have been renting small/ studio apartments throughout Europe for short term periods over several years. This one is the very best we have experienced, in every aspect. It's location is excellent: a very good neighborhood, within walking distance of all important sights in central Palermo, across the street from an excellent supermarket, close to many good restaurants, spacious (one bedroom) and sunny interior, exceptionally clean and well equipped throughout, AND very attractively furnished. The landlady is gracious and very kind, with suggestions and connections for sight seeing and even English/Italian language consultation. Our week in Palermo--over Christmas and there was a small Christmas tree waiting for us in the apartment!!!--was delightful, thanks to this apartment and its owner. It is definitely THE BEST DEAL TO BE FOUND in its category! I hope we can re-visit the city and this apartment in the future.
