Very Good

“Perfect place for a holiday!”

Reviewed 9 Aug 2017

I have just returned from a wonderful holiday at Villa Scimemi. The stylish studio is part of an amazing villa, but feels very private as the house is massive. It has everything you need! I was travelling with my two young daughters, who very much enjoyed the large pool for hours on end. The garden of the villa is beautiful too - large, and full of big, mature trees with views of the mountains surrounding Mondello. The villa is a short 5 min walks to the beach, shops providing you with essentials and some take away food places. You'll find nice restaurants in the village, which is 20 minutes stroll along the beach. The owners of the villa, Franseco and Cynthia, are simply wonderful and went out of their way beyond what one could expect to make our holiday as nice as possible. My plans to hire a car failed, but they took it upon them to organise our entire journey to Catania! They also took us out to see Palermo by Night for an incredible street food feast and showed us the Chinese Palace - a hidden gem not mentioned in my guidebook! Franseco and Cynthia are just so kind, helpful and open to share their very special place and insight to Sicilian culture. They really made us feel at home and did their best to make our holiday wonderful, which it really was! My two daughters are still nagging me to book a week for next year, so we'll definitely be back!

Owner's reply: Thanks a lot for your wonderful review. When you receive a so nice review you are satisfied and think you have reached the gol of being a good host. In addition to that, with Anja and her nice girls, we also were emotionaly involved for their friendly and nice behaviour. We look forward to meeting them again

“jolie surprise”

Un accueil Chaleureux de la part de Francesco et de son épouse dans leur superbe maison à deux pas de la plage. L'emplacement est idéal pour visiter Palerme en utilisant les transports en commun tout en profitant de la plage ou de la piscine pour des bains rafraichissants. Le studio que nous avions loué est idéal pour 2 dans cette maison d'architecte atypique (elle vaut à elle seule le déplacement). Grazie Francesco

Owner's reply: Thanks a lot for your very nice review. It was a pleasure to have you as our guests and business aside we hope to meet you again

My sister Fran and I spent 4 nights in the apartment. Had a fantastic time with everything we need at hand, Also I had a swim in the salt water swimming pool, and would recommend anyone to book a stay with you at beautiful Mondello! It was a delight to meet you and your wonderful wife and hope to get back to stay there again in the future.Thank you for been such a kind and helpful host.I miss the beautiful apartment just across the road from the beach, but felt so secure with electronic gates.

Owner's reply: Thanks a lot for your very nice review; anyway it's a pleasure to be an owner when we have so kind and polite people as you were. Thanks again
