About the home
This very refined and elegant-country style Cottage is located inside a vintage Villa, in the typical Mondello's liberty style, where the landlord lives, at just two minutes walking distance from the famous white sandy beach. Although the Villa is on the main street with easy access to all amenities and with the bus stop at just one minute on foot, the Cottage is in a exclusive backyard which allows its guests to enjoy peace and tranquillity, surrounded by a garden with ancient trees and scented flowers. The two-floor Cottage has two double bedrooms, two bathrooms, one en-suite, a masonry, Sicilian old style tradition kitchen with dining area and a living room, with a period wood-stove, facing the equipped terrace through a wide glass door. The lovely terrace, equipped with table and chairs and garden furniture, is ideal for romantic dinners, surrounded by the Mediterranean vegetation. A wide wooden-decked gazebo, shared with the very discreet owners of the villa, with wooden furniture, is a perfect alternative for dining at al fresco, maybe with a background of a tango song.
The very refined context of the Villa is perfect for holidays in great charm and exclusivity.

The Sicily region
A land of strong contrasts and great charm, Sicily is nowadays one of the most sought-after tourist destinations, thanks to its beautiful landscapes and strong traditions. Its long, sandy beaches stretching into the clear blue waters of the Mediterranean, its great culinary tradition dating back to the Arab and Norman times, its cities rich in cultural attractions, make it a very desirable place where to spend gorgeous holidays.
Its mild climate, thanks to the position at the heart of the Mediterranean Sea, is ideal for holidays in every time of the year, even just for city breaks, also thanks to the many cheap flights from the different European countries.
The Palermo / Mondello area
Palermo, Sicily's main city, with its long history dating back to the Punic civilizations, is today a very vibrant and bustling city, rich in cultural events. The city centre, with its many high-street boutiques, lovely pubs where to taste local specialties and cultural attractions has become the main destination for visitors from all over the world.
Mondello, Palermo's main sea-village, at just ten minutes drive from the city centre, offers a long, sandy beach and a clear blue sea, as well as, excellent sea-food restaurants, mostly with view on the spectacular gulf.
Easy access to the motorway allows to reach many of Sicily's most famous tourist destinations, such as Segesta and Selinunte, Trapani and Erice, or the Madonie mountains with their stunning landscapes.
