My name is Enrico, I am a retired engineer. Upon retiring, my wife Valeria and I thoroughly refurbished a building in the centre of Palermo to create ten delightful small apartments. In truth, much credit goes to her, who made a point of making each apartment unique and different from all the others.

Our dream was to encourage people to explore Palermo and fall in love with Sicily, without having to spend a lot of money or sleep in cheap, ugly and remote places.
