Palermo's old town has a special place in my heart.
My father was born and grew up at piazza Monte di Pietà with his effervescent family and a great many dear friends, tales of whom he often happily tells. The grandparents of my maternal grandmother lived and ran a shop at piazza Giovanni Meli and it was at Palazzo Pantelleria that my maternal grandparents celebrated their marriage.
I am saddened to see the disrepair into which many of the Palermo old town's buildings are now falling, because I know of the sheer beauty thus hidden from sight. I would love to see Palermo's bygone splendor restored.
Olitas del Mar, along with Casa Parlamento, is a little gift I'd like to give to Palermo, a token to mark the bond that I feel to this ancient part of town and the hope implicit in my wish to see it “happy” again: I have decided to invest my funds here and to channel my investment into a means of introducing Palermo to foreigners so that they too can enjoy it.
Casa Parlamento is found in a delightful old stonework building in Palermo's old town, just a stone's throw from the famous piazza S. Francesco d'Assisi. The building has recently been restored in a style that respects its original design.
The apartment to let is on the first floor of the building and can be reached by lift or stairs. It comprises a kitchen-living room (with a table, four chairs and a two-person sofa-bed), a comfortable bathroom (bidet, shower, toilet) and a bedroom with twin beds (which can be pushed together to form a double bed).
The apartment is fitted with automatic central heating, air conditioning, flat-screen TV, a large refrigerator, washing machine and a fully-equipped, fitted oven, microwave oven, ironing board, iron and hairdryer.
Please contact me by e-mail to enquire as to the apartment's availability over the dates of your choice and to let me know your needs for the holiday you are planning in Palermo.
We will come to an agreement regarding your transport from the airport, I can help you to rent a car or scooter and I will supply you with everything you need to enjoy your visit to the city. If you like, I can contact a guide on your behalf to accompany you through the city for a few days or your entire stay.
