The traffic is mostly of cheerful and festive pedestrian holidaymakers who, after leaving the car in the nearby car parks, are reaching the sea, 400 meters away,in just a few minutes walk.

For those who enjoy the 'movida', this is still easily accessible on foot. In fact, along about 400 meters, you reach the promenade dotted with exclusive nautical sporting clubs, beaches, bars, restaurants, pubs, ice-cream shops and places offering all kinds of services. The promenade extends for about 2 km who the most willing can easily cover in about 25 minutes to walk or more calmly if sitting occasionally in the shade of the eucalyptus trees, on benches watching the beach and the sea

Several passages, between the beach areas given in concession, also provide free access to the sea in those unwilling to pay to enjoy the services offered by the baths and beach clubs.

A few hundred meters from the chalet are easily accessible on foot or by car, neighborhood grocery stores, post office, medical tourism, bank and so on.

Less than 2 km is reached (20 minutes walk, 5 minutes by car) a large shopping center.

During the summer, there are free connecting bus (shuttle) that allow movement within the seaside resort of Mondello and to the parking in the area.

The connections of Palermo - Mondello are insured by the bus lines:

806 (every 20 'from Piazza Verdi every 10' from Piazza Sturzo)

Other services provided

Although pest control carried out on the public streets and private courts reduces the likelihood of mosquitoes and insects, all openings in the house (including those in the annex) are equipped with comfortable mosquito nets to further restrict the problem.

The cottage has an effective insulation structurally integrated into the cover. The insulation of the roof, together with the natural ventilation that is created inside the house, thanks to the numerous and large openings, more often not requires the air conditioning in summer.

However, all the rooms (including the annexe) are equipped with heat pumps for air conditioning in summer and heating in winter, with independent adjustment for each room.

Cottage and outbuilding are also served by a natural gas fired boiler for heating domestic hot water and for space heating through radiators on the wall, during the most rigid of winter, when the heat pumps prove to be insufficient.

The villa is equipped with free Internet access via ADSL and WiFi router, as well as volumetric burglar alarm.

La maison est conforme au descriptif de l'annonce (pas de mauvaises surprises) , elle est très propre et les propriétaires (Renata & Nicola) ont vraiment le sens du service: en cas de besoin, vous pouvez compter sur eux pour vous aider !

L'environnement est magnifique: un quartier résidentiel avec de belles maisons et de beaux jardins entouré de montagnes impressionnantes !

On peut rejoindre la plage à pied en quelques minutes par les petites rues bordées de pins majestueux.

Je recommande cette location !

Lovely Stay in Valdesi Mondello! Gorgeous House!

  • 5 of 5

We were so lucky with this rental - we are actually the first guests to rent this house. We arrived at the airport to find Nicola (the owner) waiting for us although we could have been escorted by the driver and yet Nicola wanted to greet us the Sicilian way :)

The house is everything that you see in the photos and more! It is actually prettier in real life. The rooms are very clean and the toilets are spin and spank! The owners are a lovely Sicilian family who made us feel at home the moment we arrived. At any point I contacted Nicola, he was very responsive and helpful. The second day, I asked for directions to the supermarket and he drove all the way from Palermo with his wife to take me there to shop for my family! They have been so wonderful and hospitable.

Villa Hopps is very close to the beach in a very high end area in Valdesi, Mondello. It is very close to Lido Valdesi, the private beach and it enjoys lovely views of clean streets where there are villas only and of course the awesome Monte Pellegrino.

The kitchen is an inviting environment for people who like to cook and is equipped with all modern day necessities. The living area and the dinning room are the center of the house gathering all people to eat or just sit and talk while enjoying the views of the garden and the safe streets surrounding the house. The patio you see in the photos has witnessed many meals and chats over drinks - absolutely gorgeous and spacious. The garden takes anyone back to nature as you hear the birds at dusk and dawn. It is also quite breezy even in hot summer days.

The house is fully secured with a burglar alarm system. It is also net secure on all windows, even the smallest ones against insects and mosquitos. The shutters prevent light in early morning, as well as sound so we slept like babies!

Our daughters enjoyed every bit of this holiday and we felt very safe to allow them to go home on their own. The house also has a lovely solarium enjoying the mountain views. It is also very accessible via bus which is a 3-minute walk.

The owners of the house are one of the best renters I have ever dealt with if not the best! They are lovely people who will make you feel as part of their family immediately. I would definitely rent this house again! My family and myself had a fantastic summer in Mondello ... I wish we could have stayed longer than 10 days. I would definitely recommend this villa! Bellissima!

Belle et confortable villa à deux pas de la mer

  • 5 of 5

Originaires de Palerme, nous savions pertinemment que cette villa se trouve à un endroit stratégique, permettant à la fois un plaisant séjour pas loin de la mer et des déplacements faciles dans la capitale. La surprise (positive!) a par contre été la villa, super confortable, bien équipée et spacieuse, et ses propriétaires, aussi cordiaux que serviables. Nous leur adressons une salutation amicale et un remerciement.

Appartamento da noi affittato per il periodo del mese di agosto 2015, con una totalità di occupanti di 7 persone più un neonato. L’accoglienza avuta dai proprietari è stata di tutto rispetto, con massima serietà e precisione nella spiegazione dell’uso quotidiano della casa. Lo stabile non presenta nessun difetto da noi riscontrato, anzi siamo rimasti sorpresi dai molteplici utensili (zona Cucina) non pensabili. 3 macchine del caffè dalla più piccola (3 tazzine) alla più grande (8 tazzine), tazze, bicchieri, pentole, padelle, piatti, cavatappi, apribottiglie, mestoli, taglieri e tanto altro. Ancora si può trovare Lavatrice, Lavastoviglie, Forno, Forno a Microonde, Ferro da stiro, Tavola da stiro e ben 2 frigoriferi (all’occorrenza il secondo lo abbiamo usato per 3 giorni). L’aria condizionata è stata molto utile per darci la possibilità di allontanarsi dal grande caldo. La posizione dal mare non è per nulla eccessiva, facendo dimenticare l’utilizzo dei mezzi di trasporto. Il parcheggio lo si trova sempre vicino l’ingresso dopo le 15:00. Prima può capitare di trovarlo 10 metri più in là per via dell’affollamento dei turisti che arrivano a parcheggiare anche in quelle traverse. Concludo ringraziando i proprietari dell’accoglienza sempre pronta ad ogni nostra richiesta.
