A cozy room right across the street from the beach, in an old mansion designed by the famous architect Giuseppe Samona in the 1950s , located between the white sand beach of Mondello (Palermo) and the cliffs of Mt. Pellegrino, both within a 2-3 minute walk, surrounded by very old trees. The bus stop for the City Center is located about five minutes away.
The apartment has a separate entrance, and includes an outdoor area where you can relax, eat or sunbathe, equipped with umbrellas, chairs and table. There are two beds + a sofa bed, kitchenette with crockery, large wardrobe with drawers, luxury linens, television with satellite TV, radio with CD player, wireless internet connection, heat pump, bathroom with shower + outdoor shower and parking space.
The villa is located in the most elegant area of the old fishing village of Mondello. It is surrounded by historical Art Nouveau villas and the most prestigious yacht clubs in Palermo where enthusiasts can rent equipment for water (website hidden). Pellegrino is well-known as an ideal spot for free-climbing. The climate is mild in autumn and spring. Mondello is easily accessible by national and international flights at nearby Falcone-Borsellino Airport.
Transportion services, restaurants, supermarket and bars are located within a radius of 100/300 mt from the house.
We have had a wonderfull stay in Mondello. The photo's of the apartment give a good impression of the location. The surrounding is beautifull. Even in april you could swim in the sea. The beach is very 'gezellig'. It was a pity that the road over the Mont Pellegrino was closed, so we could not finish our walk.
Francesco and Cinzia were very kind and helpfull.
The weather was cooperative to make our holiday succesfull.
On busy (beach)day's you better take a taxi to the airport. The busses can't keep their schedule because of the traffic.
Our stay in Palermo was fantastic! The apartment was literally ten steps away from the sandy beach and it was beautiful. Francesco was incredibly kind and accommodating considering our flight arrived 6 hours later than expected. I would stay at the same apartment again if I were to come back to Palermo.
Per la mia solitaria mini-vacanza cercavo libertà ed allo stesso tempo il sentirmi parte di una famiglia. Con Francesco e Cinzia ho trovato tutto ciò. Loro sono una coppia unita, affiatata, estremamente cordiale e gentile e disponibilissima con gli ospiti. Hanno sottratto tempo alla loro grande famiglia ed al loro relax per portarmi a visitare Palermo ed alcune sue curiosità: l'ho apprezzato tantissimo..e poi ci sono state altre occasioni famigliari veramente speciali! GRAZIE! La location della loro villa è sublime, a 2 passi dal mare, ma in posizione tranquilla, immersa in un parco magnifico. Il monolocale è funzionale, dotato di ogni confort, con biancheria da letto e da bagno di prima qualità, letti comodissimi, arredato in stile e "con stile", come del resto tutta la casa che è veramente un'opera d'arte. C'è anche una zona esterna con sedie, sdraio e, se ti va, anche una bella bici x pedalare lungomare. Vicinissima alla fermata del bus per Palermo (806) ed anche alla Pasticceria Scimone, gelateria..ed altre leccornie. E' inutile precisare che la consiglio sicuramente...ne resterete affascinati! Mi auguro di tornare...magari in compagnia! GRAZIE ancora a tutti voi, un abbraccio, cia(phone number hidden)Maura
p.s.....Francesco...ti ho sentito suonare....mi piace!!!
My boyfriend & I enjoyed a short, beautiful stay in Francesco's apartment. The apartment was great! It was everything we were looking for - right across from the beach, close to shops and restaurants, and close to bus stops. Francesco & his wife were very willing to help us and even drove us to dinner the first night, which was very kind of them. Wonderful place! Highly recommend.
Francesco and Cinzia were charming hosts who were enormously helpful and knowledgeable, but also respectful of our privacy. The house is absolutely unique, an architectural gem, a touch of Frank Lloyd Wright, with large terraces and a sea view. The apartment is spacious and comfortable, completely equipped, and with a private entrance. Mondello is a charming suburb of Palermo with a fine beach. An easy half hour bus ride into the center. Highly recommended.
We spent 3 great days in Francesco´s appt. in Sicily. The (website hidden) perfect for a comfortable vacation, you can even find everything for your first breakfast, which is very helpful as we had to learn that the stores in Italy close at 8pm. The appt. is very well equipped with a small kitchenette, tv, radio and wifi. The beds are new and very comfortable. We have enjoyed most the little terrace in front of the appt. embedded in the big backyard of the main house, but it still gives you the privacy of your own yard. The location is perfect, you step out of the frontgate and directly on the beautiful beach of Mondello. We personally more enjoyed the quietness of "our" backyard but if you want to go out and like the "action" in a big city, you just take the bus (busstop around the corner) which takes you in 20 minutes to the city center of Palermo. We are already looking forward to come back soon
Dear Cinzia & Francesco
it was nice to have the opportunity to know your kindness and unique apartment and location. It is nice to stay in a place where the architect tried to develop new concept and idea of modernity

Me and my girlfriend stayed at Francesco's apartment for the end of the year.
It was a perfect choice.
The location was ideal, in a quiet and lovely area, few steps from the bus station to the city center.
Nice, clean and cozy room, the bed was very confortable, the tv has satellite international channels, and there was also the free wi-fi signal.
We received, by the very kind owners, a usefull "welcome booklet" with infos about the city, the house and the transportation to the city centre.
I highly recommend this apartment to visit Palermo!
Our experience with Francesco and Cinzia was great! They are perfect hosts, always available and ready to help! I strongly recommend their offer for a pleasant stay in Palermo, the room is comfortable and right on the beach! So don't miss it!
We had a wonderful time in this architecturally unique house by the seaside and a beach of 2 km. We had the opportunity to be accommodated in a spacious studio with a bathroom and a small kitchen. Francesco and Cinzia have been amazingly friendly and patient to tolerate my poor Italian. They took us to a nice tour to Palermo and Monreale with a delicious typical Palermo style lunch. We recommend this apartment without hesitation for its peacefulness and good location near the seashore and for the milieu.
