In a large apartment embellished with a charming boudoir with oriental decorations, a small jewel of the early 1900s, in the world-famous Ballarò Market, in the most authentic historic center of Palermo, you will have three bedrooms and two bathrooms. For those who love art, culture, travel and interculturality, here is the perfect mix in a quiet and welcoming environment, a stone's throw from the central station and the most important historical and architectural monuments of the city.

The space
Before buying my house I visited 60 apartments. Its peculiarity immediately jumped into my eyes: a magnificent and surprising veranda, with two large windows, entirely decorated in that particular oriental style typical of the early 1900s.
All bedrooms and the living room have ornate ceilings and antique original flooring.
In summer the apartment is very cool thanks to the many openings in the house.
In winter, on the other hand, an excellent recently installed heating system makes the apartment very warm and comfortable.
The first bedroom, with a large window, opens onto a patio, is decorated with many ancient prints hanging on the walls and a very comfortable double bed; the second, inspired by the colors of Sicilian carts, gives instead on the road; the third that gives on a terrace has a more oriental flavor given by a large press that portrays two geishas sleeping.
The bathrooms, one with a shower and the other with a bathtub, are decorated with original tiles from the 1970s.
In the house there are also two terraces, one large and the other smaller

Other things to note
I usually live in this apartment; there is my whole life, the life of an actress who travels a lot for leisure and for work.
Precisely for this reason those who choose La Maison del Boudoir Oriental do so also to live a unique experience; therefore not as aseptic as that of a simple IKEA type holiday home and not as impersonal as that of a house designed exclusively for tourist use.
It is important to know that in this apartment I live with a little dog, Hormiga. It is therefore not suitable for those suffering from animal allergies.
Smoking is also allowed everywhere because I smoke myself.

The life of the Ballarò district is truly authentic: a cultural mix that makes Palermo unique in Italy. Furthermore, the proximity to the Central Station and to all the main internal and external means of communication and to all the most important and famous attractions of the city, makes this district one of the most convenient for traveling, whether for business or pleasure trips.
