Description
The 18C Villa of the Palermo Bed & Breakfast "La Piana dei Colli", sunk in the most luscious subtropical vegetation, is situated 15 minutes away from the centre of Palermo and 5 minutes distance from the More beach of Mondello.Sicily’s mild climate will allows guests to enjoy the superb garden during all year, indulging in breakfasts, readings or simply walking around its paths.The owner who is an expert in gardening and botany, decided twenty years ago to transform the abandoned lemon’s garden next to the house into an extraordinary place where she has now gathered a wonderful collection of rare plants. This garden is visited every year by several Garden Clubs.At breakfast you will sample the traditional Italian "prima colazione" served with fruit from the garden and home made jams. Fresh eggs will be served if you wish. The house interior has been elegantly refurnished and it still keeps the charm of the old palazzo.Seaside is a few minutes far from the Villa, well-known Mondello beach, and the beautiful rocks of Capo Gallo add pleasure to your journey.Coastal boat trips (with boatman) available at reasonable prices.Two dogs, affectionate and playful live in the garden, sometimes at the sight of a cat can bark upsetting the calm that otherwise is sovereign.IL GLICINE La Piana dei Colli B&B guest house offers two types of accommodation:ROOMS (SINGLE, DOUBLE AND TRIPLE)DELUXE APARTMENT SUITE (OPEN SPACE)FREE WI-FI INTERNET ACCESS IS AVAILABLE IN ALL THE ROOMS.All the Rooms are comfortable, spacious, and tastefully furnished with a bed, a sofa, a desk and a television.
