A little gem - perfect for a family break!
Overall we have nothing but amazing things to say about this place. Perfect escape from reality, 10min walk from Mondello and 30mins from Palermo on the bus - Ideal for families.
From the very beginning communication with Mario and Marianna was amazingly prompt and exactly what you need with 7 people travelling, all questions were answered and resolved where possible.
Upon arrival we were welcomed by Marianna for check in and were presented with a fridge stocked with the essentials and we definitely thought that was a sweet touch.
The property is great and really a pleasure to live in - we rented it for a week and were super impressed at the space and all rooms were comfortable, modern kitchen and plenty of spaces for you to enjoy as a family or on your own.
The pool was so enjoyable, we hardly spent time inside. It was a dream to swim in and large enough to have everyone in enjoying the scorching sunshine and still manage a swim.
The only comments we would have that is that for people with young families, you should be aware the pool is very deep - in some parts much deeper than 6ft so may be the depths should be displayed along the poolside for safety.
We should also say that a warning should be made regarding the pool - if you have any swimwear that is either light in colour or patterned in light colours (Beware - they may be stained lime green and not come out even after a lot of washes) :( Although Marianna made the best efforts to get a maintenance crew out to us, we all came back with swimwear that is now tinged green.
Lastly like other have commented previously this property is only 4 bedrooms and not 6 (as the apartment is separate to the house).
In conclusion though we wouldn't hesitate in recommending this place or coming back for another stay so if you're looking for a relaxing Sicilian break - Look no further! :)
Fantastic place (the listing doesn’t do it justice)
Everything about the villa/house was fantastic - really well appointed and in a lovely big garden, so much room both inside and out.
In fact the listing doesn’t do it justice I could explain but that would spoil the sense of surprise we felt.
Some many different areas to eat, relax or catch the sun - could easily not have left the villa for the whole week.
Only minor quibble the internet is a little patchy but really we’re on holiday so it’s not a big deal.
Mario, Patricia and Mariana were so helpful and welcoming, helped us out with tips and even helped point us in the direction of a boat excursion.
There’s plenty of room for a car if you hire one, we didn’t and did everything on foot. Which was fine as we like walking if you don’t you’d want to think about a car as the beach is walkable but the streets around Mondello are a little dirty.
The local shops - Gelateria, pattiserie, pizza shop, fruit and veg were fantastic and within easy reach some of the best of all of these we’ve had in Sicily and the local restaurant is fantastic and has a great selection of wine to take away.
A really really great holiday home and some where I would recommend again and again.
This house is fabulous, the location is perfect , just on the edge of Mondello with a brief walk to the town. The pool was amazing big enough an deep enough for all the family to enjoy. The only thing to note, is that this is actually a 4 bedroom property with a completely separate 2 bedroomed apartment. make sure you understand this before arrival, As, we had misread the description of the property and this was rather embarrassing when upon arrival it became clear., that we had booked a 4 bedroomed house. May we suggest that this property (as fabulous as it is) be advertised as a 4 plus 2 and not as a 6 bedroomed house. To avoid any further confusion. This, however, did not detract from this amazing time we spent in this fabulous property. Best restaurant, by far, is Poldo2 on the seafront in Mondello, highly recommended.
Fantastic Pool and outdoor area !
Very large spacious house, with good aircondition in all rooms. Well equipped kitchen, and only10-12 minutes walk to the beach. No problem not having a car.
Stunning villa in a beautiful location
My family and I stayed at this beautiful villa for a week. The pool and grounds area are beautiful especially with the mountain view backdrop.
Christopher was also very helpful and told us some great restaurants and places to visit nearby.
The supermarket and beach is a short ride away but to explore the most that this beautiful country has to offer I would recommend hiring a car.
Thanks again Patricia and Christopher for a perfect holiday.
Thanks for the review. We are very happy your stay was fine. We hope to see you again.
A wonderful spacious house in the great resort of Mondello. The pool is fabulous. Easy bus rides into Palermo centre. Very kind hosts, especially Chris who was very helpful indeed. We hope to return.
We are very happy you enjoyed our house and we hope to see you again.

Who comes to Palermo for the first time, should always come from the sea at dawn, to appreciate the poetry of his magical bay. And in more than 20km of this coast, protected by the loving embrace of the Conca d'Oro, the pearl beach is 'Mondello'.
Welcome to Mondello, Palermo's most prestigious fishing village and seaside resort of primary importance, only a few minutes from the city, through the beautiful park of the Favorita. Mondello and its charming Art Nouveau buildings, the white sand, excellent gastronomy based on fresh fish, octopus boiled and street food, the inimitable ice cream, craft shops, the popular festivals, a gulf that ranges from the Marine Reserve of Capo Gallo to the Archaeological Addaura Caves. Here are the first traces of Human settlement dating back over 15.000 hears ago (Upper Paleolithic). This is demonstrated by cave paintings in the Addaura Caves. The first settlement in the modern era was the fishing village (XVc.), built around a trap, of which there are watchtowers. The surrounding lands were reclaimed between 1892 and 1912 by the Italian-Belgian company that erected the bathing establishment, built on rock-solid stilts in the middle of the gulf. In the evocative atmosphere of the age of Florio Family, dozens of elegant Liberty residences rose, entrusted by the nobility and the bourgeoisie to the best architects of the time, sicilians and foreigners. Liberty villas and town houses adorn the streets of the village and give the opportunity for an amazing walk, the discovery of a fabulous and seductive 'belle epoque'
