Sicily, Palermo, Beautiful 142 square meter apartment in villa two blocks from the beach

Beautiful, sunny, three-bedroom flat on the top floor of a two-story 1940s villa. Located in the most sought-after neighborhood in Palermo, less than two blocks from the world-famous Mondello beach. The flat is well-furnished with two full bathrooms, spacious kitchen, both antique and modern furniture, marble floors and kitchen counters, very high ceilings, and excellent heating and plumbing. The flat has a furnished terrace and includes exclusive furnished rooftop (120 square meters) access with fantastic view of both the sea and Monte Pellegrino (see pictures). It also has a big-screen tv, cable tv (Sky), high-speed internet, and well-appointed office space. There is a private (gated) driveway.

The house would make a fabulous writing retreat, being in a peaceful residential area, and at the same time is both at the sea and just ten minutes' drive from the city center. Palermo is a culturally rich and diverse city with myriad opportunities to discover artistic, architectural, and historical beauties, and is near to some of the most beautiful coastline in the Mediterranean, not to mention nearby islands and volcanoes.

My husband and I stayed in Marina's apartment for 3 excellent months, from February 6-May 7 2018. Martina was a very reliable host from the beginning to the end, always promptly replied to emails and quickly resolved issues which arose. The apartment is located in a the delightful Santa Croce sestiere (district) of Venice and is an easy 7 minute walk from the train station, barely a 15 minute walk to the Rialto Market and bridge, and only a delightful 20 minute walk to Piazza San Marco. With both heating and air conditioning, it has a spacious living room and spacious bedroom; the well-equipped attractive kitchen has a french door to delightful, if small, balcony; the bathroom includes a washing machine; and, there is plenty of storage. It’s right on one of Venice’s canals - just a quaint bridge to Campo Zan Degola - in a quiet area of the Santa Croce with lovely restaurants, bars and local food markets and supermarkets all within 5 minute walking distance, including many pleasant non-crowded canal-side dining and drinking establishments and one of the top 10 Venice restaurants, La Zucca! Overall, we had a great stay there and can absolutely recommend this place! Excellent TCG 6/5/2018 2:54:00 PM
This house is a true treasure. We ( family of four) spent two weeks there this summer and we couldn't possible be more content and happy. The neighborhood is nice with beautiful gardens and the villa is just a two minutes walk to the beach. The house is also very well connected with Palermo through frequent bus services.
