Secure off-street parking a bonus as we used it as a base for travelling around North-West Sicily. Air conditioning and insect screens much appreciated.

The place is a peacefully surrounded by the Green and located really close to the Mondello beach. The nice houses are curated in detail, clean and well equipped as well as the awesome garden with an easy access to the swimming pool. The owners are great hosts and the atmosphere is friendly. Just 2 minutes walking, you will find bars, pizzeria and a newsstand with international newspaper and ...more important... the food market is just 3 minutes walking and open by 10 p.m. So I really recommend it!
