The most AMAZING Italian vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

The property was beautiful, extremely spacious and no view on the entire island of Sicily can compare. We loved it so much we offered to purchase the property. We plan to make this our yearly or every other year vacation home if this hot spot is available! Bellisimo!

Photos deceiving

  • 3 of 5

The photographs make grounds appear impressive, however the garden is a triangle sandwiched between a very busy main road at the front and a rubbish filled slip road to the rear full of graffiti. Not quite sure where the exclusive development fits in as it appears to be no more than a suburb of busy Palermo . The villa on the whole provides very good accommodation, the kitchen is very dated and ill equipped. The welcome reception was good , however, if like us you want a nice resort then this is definitely not the place..

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, we are really sorry you consider deceiving the photos of the garden. Nobody before you has never complained about it; on the contrary, it has always been very appreciated by our guests. I reiterate, the villa has an enviable position. Of course, the area can be crowded during the summer season, since Mondello is one of the most appreciated beach locations in Italy. Goethe defined Mount Pellegrino “the most beautiful promontory in the world” …. And Villa Ibiscus is just on this foothills, 15 metres away from the sea, reachable by the little gate of the “triangle sandwiched” garden. I am very sorry you didn’t appreciated Villa Ibiscus and its location…. As known, tastes are personal.

Fabulous Christmas Family Holidays in Mondello

  • 5 of 5

The Villa Hibiscus is located really close to the amazing Mondello beach. In the morning, you can enjoy an outstanding view on the sea from the living room. The sleeping rooms consist of big, comfortable beds. The wardrobes are spacious and elegant. Thanks to the dominating colour white, the house is bright and modern. The kitchen is very well-equipped.

On the day of our arrival we were greeted by the staff and entered a perfectly clean house. The owner provided us with various fruits and typical Itailan products as a welcoming present! We would like to thank Veronica and Franceso for their kind support and for their patience. We are looking forward to returning in the near future and would like to highly recommend the villa and its location to other travellers.

Superb !!!

  • 5 of 5

The Villa was excellent - exactly as we imagined from the website photos. Bright and spacious with plenty of room for everyone, we were 3 couples and 2 singles. The bedrooms were large and clean with everything we needed. Views from the balcony were just perfect, very relaxing and ideal for breakfast and evening meals or just lazing about, a wonderful space. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend Villa Ibiscus !

Beautiful villa in the most stunning location ever

  • 5 of 5

Right from the first moment of arriving at the villa, everything went well. We were greeted by Veronica, Maria and Sheikh - a lovely welcoming party. The villa was spacious, clean, light and airy. The air conditioning in the bedrooms (necessary) was the first system we have every had which was quiet and worked efficiently. The bed linen and towels were good quality (unlike in some villas!)

However, it is the terrace and the stunning view which makes this villa unique. What a joy it was to sit there of an evening, having dinner and a bottle or two of Sicilian wine. The breeze from the sea was wonderful during our two weeks there because the weather was very hot.

We were a group of four adults, each with our own bedrooms. A tiny point for thinking about by the owner/manager - one of the bedrooms had a camp bed which was not great!

Otherwise 10 out of 10!

Villa Ibiscus is located in an elegant area full of liberty-style villas in Mondello.

This charming seaside village, settled between the two rocky hills Monte Pellegrino and Monte Gallo, has a very interesting history. At first, it was a fishing marshy village, until Prince Francesco Lanza di Scalea started the drainage in 1891. In the early ‘900s, a Belgian society obtained the handover of a big portion of this territory, committing itself to create an high-class seaside village; thereby they built a luxury hotel; a bathing resort on the sea, which is also a very elegant and well-known restaurant today; lots of liberty style villas, that you can still admire around; kiosks, gardens and so on.

Its lovely bay encompasses a characteristic marina, just opposite to the main square of Mondello, where you will also see the old watchtower of Fico D’India and the “tonnara”, a Sicilian typical building for tuna fishing, both surrounded by bars and restaurants today.


Natural reserves of Capo Gallo and Monte Pellegrino

The Natural Reserve of Capo Gallo is reachable through a coast path, on west part of the village. Monte Gallo is a promontory overlooking the sea, surmounted by a white tower called “Semaforo”.It is rich in caves, whose most famous is “Grotta dell’Olio”, a suggestive sea cavern with clear bright water and light sandy seabed brightened by rays of sunshine passing from some top fissures. This natural reserve has a varied flora and fauna: here you can see plants such as Brooms of Gasparrini, wild Orchids,Sicilian Sparviere and a lot of animals such as foxes, wild rabbits,peregrine falcons,real seabirds.

The Natural Reserve of Monte Pellegrino comprises the whole homonymous mountain and the royal estate of Favorita. Goethe described it as “The most beautiful promontory in the world”, maybe thanks to its magic contrasts, different nature colors, steep sides and practicable plains. Here there is the most important pilgrimage place of Palermo,Santa Rosalia’s sanctuary, with its particular rocky church.



Palermo is Sicily’s cultural and touristic capital, thanks to its history, art and architecture. Its sights will really excite you. You must visit Massimo theatre, the biggest one in Italy and the third one in Europe; Piazza Politeama and its renowned theatre; the Medieval Cathedral; the Royal Palace with its Palatine Chapel; the International puppet museum; the Chinese Palace, an oriental building on the foot of Monte Pellegrino; the great number of interesting ancient churches, such as “Casa Professa”, “Church of Martorana”, “Church Magione”, “S.S. Salvatore”, “Church of Santa Maria dello Spasimo” and a lot more.

Numerous tourists are really attracted by its delicious food, in particular by its “street food”, so you should not miss its typical street markets of Ballarò, Capo and Vucciria, which will catch your senses through unique smells, flavors and colors. Here you can find “pani e panelle”,“pani ca’ meusa”,“sfincione”,“stigghiola”,“vastedda” and many other culinary specialties.


Feasts and festivals


Since 1985, Mondello has been the place of an International sport festival, which includes beach volley, kite surf, windsurf, sailing and musical shows, hosting athletes and famous people from all over the world. It takes place in the end of May and it usually lasts 4-5 days.


The so called “Festino” is the most important feast for people of Palermo. It is on 15th July, but the great celebration is the night before, when the statue of the Saint wanders the streets of the old part of the city, that are full of food and toys stands. At the end of the holy procession there are very stunning fireworks in the seaport.
