“Excellent + beautifull beach location; also for visiting Palermo!”

Nice and quiet location just a few meters(!) from the beach of Mondello. A great little town with a great beach+boulevard. The beautiful villa is located at the end of this boulevard where there is no traffic allowed through, which is great ! When looking at Mondello (busy!) we were surprised by how quiet the location of the villa was.

The accommodation itself is very private, at the back of the villa. It was nice+ relaxed to sit on the patio at evening times, reading books and checking internet. WIFI was rapid ! Glass fiber connection:-)
All the basic needs are provided for in this clean and proper appartement.

The owner and hosts, Francesco and Cynthia are so helpful and very nice! (like all Sicilian people by the way) On arrival we found some complimentary sandwiches and fruit drinks, coffee and candy, very nice attention. Francesco will help you with all sorts of information in English and Italian, his lovely wife will do the same in Italian. Nothing is too much for them, they also shared their food with us more than once. For example great local cactus fruit , which you should NOT trie to pick yourself as i found out hhaha!

We were allowed to use the pool, which is way cooler than the sea. We felt very rich because we had our private swimming pool ;-) Very nice change from the beach if you don't feel like sand all over your body.

We had a rental car, but when going into Palermo just leave it on the villa's grounds as the public transportation will take you into the centre in 10-15 minutes ! Thanks for that advice Francesco ! The car would not have survived the traffic-jungle of this big city.. they drive like MAD.

I can think of only one thing on the down side (besides traffic in Palermo) , something i found all over Sicily by the way, the mosquitos. So take some repellant with you when visiting.

Thank you Francesco for taking us to Palermo on the last day!
We'll be back, Ciao ciao !! :-))))

“Excellent calm appartment for holiday close to the beach and the city”
Reviewed 10 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

My wifeand I had a wonderful stay in Villa Scimemi. It's situated in a big garden with old trees and a large pool in a calm area of Mondello, but only 100 m away from the free beach.

The nice appartment with a small kitchen is very clean and well equipped. The car can be parked on the secured ground of the villa.

A lot of restaurants and shops are within in walking distance.

Palermo can easily be reached by bus.

Franchesco and Cinzia are very friendly and provide a lot of good recommendations.
It was a perfect stay and we say: grazie mille!

“Wonderful hosts and location”

Steps away from one of the best beaches in Sicily, and within walking distance of a vast array of restaurants and bars (mostly of the gelato/espresso variety), this was the perfect rest spot for us after a hectic 10 days. We saw Palermo from here -- well worth it; what an amazing city -- and spent one down day lounging on the beach. The hosts are the most gracious and caring people you can find. Comfortable room. The house it's attached to is amazing, and in an exclusive neighborhood. Can't beat the rental price .
