Mondello Beach Palace
Having never been to Sicily, I wanted to make sure we picked a prime location near the beach and restaurants to minimize the driving and spend more time relaxing. If you like to swim, like I do, the beach couldn't be any closer and the water couldn't be any warmer. From the communication side, Silvio and Chiara were very easy to communicate with despite our language barrier. They were patient with our moving arrival time as well. Driving in Palermo is unique and challenging:) The apartment is their former family dwelling and is understated by the photographs in their posting. 14" ceilings, art, classic beautiful furniture, two amazing terraces and a spectacular Italian kitchen!There are also two nice bathrooms and a private entrance with parking in a place where parking is very difficult. Incredibly spacious by any other VRBO measurement. Loved it! Mondello has very good local restaurants including one that Chiara recommended called Sympaty (10 minute walk). The tiny squid were unreal! Gelato is everywhere and as good as it gets. The restaurant behind the house Bar Pasticceria Alba has amazing food for every meal as well. If you want to visit Palermo, and you should, the bus stops right outside, way easier than driving and transit is very reliable. We were there in the summer, so i can only speak to what happens in June, but you should be prepared for a very busy beach experience. The beach is very popular with families from Palermo. During the day it gets very crowded on the beach but the terrace that faces the beach is a better place to relax after a swim and enjoy the show. At night, the area is popular with teens. For the most part, they are just there to mingle and eat gelato. They are generally very polite and respectful, and not there to cause trouble. They do make noise, so if you a super light sleeper this may not be your best option. The apartment has big beautiful thick shuttered windows that also close up at night and air conditioners in each room that allow you to turn it off if you don't like all the action. The view and terrace were so spectacular we ended up taking far less day trips elsewhere than we had planned. One really nice day trip we took was an island called Ustica (high speed boat from Palermo 1.5 hours). The place is unbelievable. Thanks for the recommendation! We really enjoyed our stay and couldn't imagine staying anywhere else in Mondello. Grazie!
MILLION DOLLAR VIEW
An old world Italian villa with a spectacular view right across the street from Mondello Beach.
We enjoyed a week in spring and missed nothing. The two terraces are a jewel.
Excellent appartment - great stay
My family and I stayed 10 days in the appartment end of July. The welcoming by the owner family was very friendly and informative and uncomplicated. The car could be parked directly on the grounds of the villa. We were four (2 adults, two kids) in the apartment which is spacious and provided enough room for our family to also allow for some privacy. Of great positive surprise was the kitchen with everything you need - really everything. The furniture and decoration is a real treat. Living in a liberty style villa with original furniture and paintings at the wall from the owner and builder of the villa creates a very unique atmosphere, which you hardly find elsewhere. The short way to the beach is a real plus even though the public parts of the beach are rather not of much value - we recommend to go to Club Albaria (100m) which provides excellent water sport possibilities and sunbeds and umbrellas too. The good and bad at the same time is the location of the villa itself. The villa is located directly in front of the most visited icecream shop in Italy (-; There is traffic and noise up until early in the morning. So if you plan to go there be prepared for it. My family and I definitely would rent this appartment again, even with this noise, the villa, the appartment atmosphere and quality we regard more important than the noise. Thanks a lot to the owner family who made it very easy for us and who helped us with everything - we will return definitely.
Best regards, MS
Thank you! We will be happy to host you a second time in the future. As you say, noise is a problem, in high season, but the City has already decided to pedestrianize the whole area: when this decision will be implemented - I hope soon - the situation will certainly improve.
Beautiful apartment, amazing location
My husband and I, our two year old daughter and a few relatives (visiting at different times) stayed in Silvio's apartment for a month. The location couldn't be better - the beach is beautiful and literally across the road. There are a few small shops and restaurants within a 5 minute walk which is great. The apartment is amazing, with spectacular views and lots of space. It has everything you need and is kid friendly, but still retains a lot of character. Silvio and his family are great hosts and were very helpful and welcoming and quick to respond if we needed anything. The icecream shop across the road can get a little busy/noisy on weekends at night, but we found this was fine if we closed the bedroom windows. I highly recommend Silvio's apartment and would love to return in the future.
Beautiful Art Nouveau Villa
We spent one week in this absolutely beautiful period villa with three adults and three children.
The villa, still owned by the heirs of its architect Giuliano Valdes, is in great condition and retains many period features. Staying there is a real treat for people who are interested in Sicilian Art Nouveau. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful and even came out late on a Friday night to help us sort out a problem.
The kitchen is well equipped and our children loved having breakfast on the terrace overlooking the beach. We would warmly recommend staying there and our three children are already campaigning to go back!
Thank you! I will be happy to host you again. To be precise, the villa was designed in 1926 by the Architect Ernesto Basile for Salvatore Gregorietti, painter and decorator Liberty and the grandfather of the current owners.
Kesällä ranta on ranta, jossa voit vuokrata (päivä tai viikko) aurinkotuoleja ja aurinkovarjoja. Rantaviivaa pääsee sijaan vapailla portit, joista yksi sijaitsee aivan edessä Villa. Ne, jotka haluavat uida alueen rock voi saavuttaa (5 minuuttia bussilla +15 kävellä luonnonsuojelualueen Capo Gallo. Maksat noin yhden euron vapaa pääsy rannikolle: läpitunkeva, lisää rauhallisuutta ja kauneutta paikkoja. Samaan luonnonsuojelualue pääsee (suositeltava, mutta tietyssä vaiheessa, se vain jatkuu jalka - tasainen ja helppo) läheisen kylän Sferracavallo (Barcarello paikoissa). Sferracavallo on tunnettu monista ravintoloita erikoistunut mereneläviä. Lisäksi monia paikkoja vierailla kaupungissa Palermo ja basilika Monreale, harkitse aseman Segestaan (40 minuutin ajomatka) kauniista kreikkalaisen temppelin ja sen antiikin teatteri. Huomionarvoista on Zingaro luonnonsuojelualue, joka sijaitsee rannikon Castellammare del Golfo San Vito Lo Capo. voit seurata sitä Jalka (erinomainen varusteltu polut) tai ihailla sitä merestä, vuokraamalla veneen satamassa Castellammare.
niille, jotka haluavat mennä purjehdus ja purjelautailu, voi kääntyä muutaman metrin päässä Villa Yacht Club "Albaria".
Saat matkojen kaupungin Palermo, koska kaoottinen liikenne ja vaikeus löytää parkkipaikka, on edullista käyttää julkista liikennettä; bussipysäkki on 100 metrin päässä Villa; alakerrassa on taksitolppa. Jos haluat vierailla yksi kuuluisan katukauppaan, älä mene Vucciria (nyt vähän käytetty), ja mieluummin Porta Carini (muutaman metrin päässä oikeustalo), mieluiten käydä aamulla, välttäen iltapäivällä.
Muutaman metrin päässä talosta löydät kaikki tarvittavat kaupat, kioski, pankki, apteekki, terveyskeskus kesä, posti.
