The Neighborhood


The old fishing village of Mondello is known, nowadays, for its many cafes and restaurants but also for its beautiful beach. Mondello beach is, in fact, one of the most famous beaches of Sicily, known for its beautiful villas, that are recognized as one of the best expression of the "Art Nouveau" in Italy. In the square that overlooks the marina there are many clubs, pizzerias and restaurants you can taste excellent dishes, especially fish and seafood. There are ice cream shops and bakeries, sandwich bars and fast food. In the village square you can taste the "sfinciuni" (a pizza with tomato and onions). A supermarket is 5-minutes by foot from the apartment. The beautiful sandy beach is about 500 meters from the apartment (6 minute walk), typically the part of the beach closest to the country is available freely. If you like you can pay the entrance and have sunbeds and beach umbrella. If you prefer the rocks, in about 15 minutes walk (or 2 min by car) you can reach the beautiful nature reserve of Capo Gallo (for the entrance probably they will ask you 50 cents per person on foot or 5 euro per car).

A tour in the surroundings

You can visit the village of Mondello and the marina, as well as you can walk along the beach towards Mondello-Valdesi looking at the elegant “Art Nouveau” villas. You can admire the gulf and the old bathing establishment "Charleston" in the middle of the beach, in Art Nuveau style. In the summer season (June to September) there is a free shuttle (every 10 minutes) to reach Valdesi, Addaura or Sferracavallo. One of the stops is in Tolomea street, few steps from the house.

You can reach the city of Palermo, with its wonderful art works known all over the world, in 20-minutes by car or by the bus 806 (the bus stop is located in the main square or in Teti street in the summer season). If you like, we can arrange for you (with a charge) tours of Palermo with a tourist guide or simply, if you do not have a car and you would prefer not to take the bus, a car transfer to the town center.

In Palermo you can visit the Cathedral, the Royal Palace with its splendid palatine chapel, the old town with its narrow streets and its many churches, the Politeama Square, the city center and the beautiful Teatro Massimo. Not far from the city, the wonderful cathedral of Monreale is also well worth a visit.

From Mondello you can reach for a day-trip: The Valley of the Temples in Agrigento (2 hours and 30 car), the archaeological sites of Segesta (about 1 hour) and Selinunte (1 hour and 30), the beautiful salt pans of Trapani (1 hour and 30) with the island of Mozia or the town of Cefalù (1h and 45 approximately).

What makes this house unique

The house is big and comfortable. The big terrace allow to have lunch/dinner outside. The patio is also very useful for the children. The house is built on a small hill above the village. The area is very quiet also in summer becouse it overlooks a garden. Generally you will find a parking spot infront of the house. The house is close to the village square and to the beach.

Fantastico soggiorno a Mondello!!

  • 5 of 5

Siamo stati benissimo nella casa di Marina e Stefano,

La casa è grande e spaziosa, la cucina è equipaggiata di tutto, le camere grandi e pulite e la terrazza è davvero splendida! La zona è vicinissima alla piazza di Mondello e alla spiaggia ma molto tranquilla.

Il sig. Gabriele è stato molto gentile ci ha accolto e ci ha spiegato tutto sulla casa. Torneremo sicuramente!

Appartamento comodissimo anche per famiglie numerose.

  • 5 of 5

Io, mio marito e i bambini abbiamo appena passato una settimana veramente rilassante a Mondello in questo bell'appartamento con terrazzo vista mare. L'appartamento e' spaziosissimo in ogni sua parte e molto tranquillo. La spiaggia e la piazzetta principale di Mondello sono a 5 minuti a piedi. La signora Marina e' gentilissima e disponibile e ci ha permesso, dato l'orario dei nostri voli, di effettuare il check in e il check out in orari non proprio canonici.

Super - tolle Terrasse und nahe Piazza und Strand

  • 5 of 5

Die Wohnung ist sehr großräumig mit 2 Terrassen. Die große Terrasse (in den Bilder ersichtlich) ist sehr groß mit Liegestühlen und Holywood-Schaukel - mit Blick auf das Meer. Der Weg zur Piazza und zum Strand ist kurz - nur mit etwas Steigung. Die Vermieter sind sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Es fehlte uns nichts in dieser Wohnung. Sehr empfehlenswert.
