Welcome in the land of sea, sun, food, fishes, art, nature ... What else ?
The villa is located in the small and picturesque borough of Mondello, fascinating sea village in the northern side of Palermo. Its beach lies between two cliffs called Mount Gallo and Mount Pellegrino.
Mondello was originally a small fishing village situated on marshland, but at the end of the 19th Century it grew into a favourite touristic destination. The numerous Liberty style villas on the seafront promenade made it one of the gems of Art Nouveau in Europe.
