About Francesco Vaccaro
I am a physician researcher at the University of Palermo. I love music, I play the Alto Sax. My wife and I love to travel and know the customs of the various peoples. We are very friendly people and as good Sicilians, we have a great sense of hospitality. It is not uncommon for us to tour with our guests to visit the most characteristic and hidden places of Palermo. With my family we live in the house where the apartment is inserted. What we ask our guests is to have more respect for all of us and the properties they use.
Why Francesco Vaccaro chose Mondello
The charm of the ancient and the modern that blend into one another mysteriously in Wright's design of the villa and its beautiful seaside location make it an subject of particular interest not only from a technical point of view but, for generations, even among the local people. Designed in the early 50s by famous architect G. Samonà.

Fantastic cosy studio apartment perfect for a couple
Francesco & Cynthia are very warm & welcoming hosts! The studio apartment is ideally situated just across the street from Mondello’s beautiful beaches & a 20 minute, €1,40 bus ride to the historic centre of Palermo. It provided us a peaceful oasis after days of sightseeing. The apartment has secure parking, wifi, an equipped kitchen & fresh herbs growing outside our door. We loved sitting on our large terrace, surrounded by tall trees, sipping wine & visiting with Francesco & Cynthia, who made themselves available to answer our queries & provide advice, The village of Mondello is very walkable & has good restaurants, food markets & shopping. We would definitely stay here again, as we felt we were saying goodbye to friends! Milie Grazie Francesco & Cynthia - wish we had more than our 4 nights with you! A presto, Roberto & Marianne
Thanks a lot for your booking and your very nice review which definitely help us to improve better and better our hospitality. Anyway I wish I had every guest as you are!
Wonderful location, wonderful hosts!
Great location, steps from the beach and restaurants, wonderful host and hostess, very comfortable.
Thanks a lot for your very nice review. It is an encouragement for us to continue on the way of a perfect welcome
Lovely stay with very friendly hosts
We had a very pleasant stay at Francesco's villa. Francesco and his wife were really welcoming and friendly while leaving you in privacy.
The apartment is on the backside of the villa where you can park also your car right next to the entrance. The location is just perfect and the beach (actually also the best part of the beach) is not even a minute walk just across the street. For reaching the town of Monedello at opposite end of the beach there are free bikes available, but we usually just walked the 15-20 minutes along the beach enjoying the pretty site of the bay. A bus stop with various lines to Palermo is also just 5 minutes away. Only the Wifi signal was not the best, but just mentioning to Francesco and he tried everything to improve the signal strenght.
So all in all a very well earned full 5 stars rating for our stay.
A lovely apartment on top of the beach
We have just returned from our stay at Francesco's charming apartment, which is a mere 30 second walk from the public beach - and in this respect couldn't be located in a better position! The apartment itself has all the extras you'd want (Air Con/TV/WIFI). There is a site seeing tour bus that leaves from Piazza Valdesi (5 minute walk away) which takes you into Palermo. This is a great way to see the local area etc, and once in Palermo you can use the same tickets to travel around the city by tour bus. All in all I can heartily recommend staying at this apartment - you won't be disappointed!
Nel bungalow di Villa Scimemi si sta davvero bene. È nuovo e pulitissimo, nel giardino adiacente alla Villa e col mare di sottofondo. Francesco e Cinzia sono molto accoglienti. Atmosfera molto bella in questo pezzo di arte a Mondello
Ein sehr schöner weiter Strand.
Der Eigentümer des Ferienhauses ist sehr freundlich und nett. Im Haus selber befindet sich alles was man für die Ferien braucht. Eine sehr schöne, große Terrasse befindet sich unter den Bäumen.
Zum Strand sind es 20 m.
Thanks for your very nice review. Please, let me just make a quick observation: if everything was fine, why 4 stars only ? Everything is subjective ! Thanks again
