Our apartment, located within the historical building of Palazzo Merlo from the 16th century, has been carefully renovated by a known architect and photographer from Palermo and shows an interesting mix of historical and contemporary design features.

The apartment is situated on the first floor of Palazzo Merlo, built in the late Middle Ages, on the walls of the ancient Arab citadel, and it is a perfect union of historical and contemporary design. It is very quiet thanks to its thick ancient wall and its location in a small alley. The entrance gives way to a wonderful living area, where the ancient Arabic stone walls, the wooden beams dating back to 1500 and a few beautiful Sicilian antiques are mixed with several furniture and lighting items of contemporary design. This spacious room, enriched by a large bookcase, offers a double sofa bed in addition to a big comfortable sofa. From here, walking up a few steps, you will reach the modern styled kitchen, fully equipped, including a dishwasher and a steel sliding door that can be closed to isolate the area, when needed. It is the perfect space to prepare gourmet meals to be eaten in the living room, better if with seafood or other local ingredients from the street market in the area! The main bedroom is furnished with a queen-sized bed and a wardrobe, and features a 16th century wooden coffered ceiling, in addition to an independent balcony with a great view on the main facade of the church of San Francesco. The bathroom is entirely built with lava stone, steel and mirrors and boasts a wide and comfortable shower. The entire flat has free Wi-Fi, air conditioning and heating.

Our apartment is located in the most prestigious district of the city, the Arab quarter of Kalsa. It is situated only 200 metres from the seaside and close to the Gulf of Cala, Piazza Marina (with its centenary ficus trees), Palazzo Steri (former Court of the Inquisition). The apartment is 50 metres from the 14th century church of S. Francesco d’Assisi together with the oratories of Immacolatella and San Lorenzo, decorated with 18th century stuccoes. At only 200 metres from the apartment you will find the museum complex of Palazzo Abatellis, which hosts the Regional Art Gallery exhibiting important artworks such as those by Antonello da Messina. With 5 more minutes you will have the chance to walk down Foro Italico, enjoying its seafront meadows and all its cafes, also a night-life attraction. Kalsa neighborhood is the perfect area to appreciate historical buildings and churches, the folkloristic local market stalls with the colours and flavours of the renowned street food and, last but not least, culture thanks to museums and theatres. Whether you are looking for a gourmet dinner or for a typical local “trattoria”, rest assured you will find both at a walking distance.

The central station is only 10 minutes walking distance, where you will also find the bus stop for transfers from/to the airport. Before your arrival, we will send you more information on places to go, what to see and taste. Please do not hesitate to ask!
