The space

A brand-new, fully furnished apartment in the heart of the old city overlooking a peaceful courtyard of palms and orange trees. Situated on the first floor of a recently renovated small building, it is a short walk to all major tourist attractions.
The apartment greets you immediately with its decor and attention to detail giving you the warm, safe and cosy felling you are used to when you are in your own home.
This bright, sunny flat consists of two comfortable good-sized bedrooms, a cosy and spacious living room and two fitted bathrooms with shower. There is also a fully equipped kitchen, with oven, dishwasher, plus plenty of pots and pans if you get in the mood for cooking.

The bedrooms are both quiet and tastefully decorated with plenty of storage space.
The living room is equipped with a comfortable sofa-bed and two stylish armchairs. You will find it so lovely to sit and unwind on the little balcony in the living area having breakfast or sipping a glass of wine.

Other things to note

Transfer available from/to PMO airport at 40 euros (each way).
Guided tour of Palermo and other Sicilian destinations available on request.
Anyone who is planning to drive in Palermo's historic centre needs to be aware of Restricted Traffic Areas, or Zona Traffico Limitato in Italian, abbreviated to ZTL. The old town centre has set up these limited traffic zones in order to reduce congestion and pollution, and there are significant fines for driving into one of these zones unauthorized.
No cars without permits can be allowed in this area. So, If you are planning on driving in the historic center of Palermo, make sure you inform me about that, so I can tell you where to take your 5-euro daily entrance ticket and how to activate it in order to get in the city centre without getting fined.

Chiara's apartment couldn't be more like home. Comfortable and relaxed with everthing one would need. The location is also so good, in La Kalsa, near all the interesting sights, good restaurants and the free city bus just outside the door. Chiara was always available to help us, including driving more than 100km to collect Helen'sunglasses left in the duomo in Erice!!! She also has a wealth of information in the apartment for visitors. All in all our whole experience couldn't be faulted.

This a great, well appointed, modern apartment in a residential area, but only a two minute walk from many restaurants and local bars. The host gave a good explanation of what was available locally and across the city. Top tip? Use the hosts guide to local restaurants. It took us to a variety great places to eat, with our only complaint being that we didn't have enough time to visit them all.

Chiara's place is in a perfect location to explore the city and is even nicer than the pictures. She's super easy to communicate with.

Chiara's place had all that we needed for our family of 4. It was clean and tidy and nicely presented. Chiaras cousin met us when we arrived and told us about the local neighbourhood. We loved the restaurant Anica which is just opposite the apartment on the other side of the square. We also loved the day trip we did to Cefalu by train. The old town and beach there were stunning. Chiaras apartment is about a 15 min walk from the central train station and about a 10 min walk from a supermarket. Overall we had a great stay! :)

Chiara was lovely and her place was clean, comfotable for 4 adults, in a great location and was beautifully decorated with the feel of Sicily. Chiara welcomed us personally and gave us all the information we needed for our stay in Palermo, she gave us a map and spent the time to explain what to see in our 3 days there and how to get around which really helped. Also, the food recommendations were great! We were in a convenient location to restaurants and nightlife and will definately stay here again when we come back to Sicily! Thanks Chiara we loved Palermo!

I felt very comfortable in Chiara's well-located, quiet apartment. The space is well-designed and features comfortable furniture and new systems that work well. I especially appreciated the air conditioning. Chiara is a thorough and thoughtful host who has taken the time to prepare materials for guests about Palermo's landmarks and restaurants as well as public transportation systems. Plus, she is easy to communicate with -- she always responded immediately to any questions or requests.

Hi everybody!
My name is Chiara, I am myself a huge traveller and have been to many countries all over the world, so i think I know the demands of international travellers!
I love meeting lots of new and interesting people. There is so much to learn from different backgrounds and cultures!
I can speak Italian, Spanish, and fluent English (and understand Portuguese), so if you need any informations about the flat or tips about the city feel free to ask in any of these languages !
I'll try hard to make my guests feel as comfortable as possible in their home away from home :)
