Mondello Beach House

 

 

Mondello is a world-famous beach town, loved by Italians and foreigners alike. Located in Italy’s warmest, southern-most region, featuring a mild climate even in the autumn and spring, it is easily accessible by national and international flights at nearby Falcone-Borsellino Airport. Mondello offers a beautiful white sand beach and gentle seawater for swimming, sailing, windsurfing, etc. There are also two mountaintop nature reserves above the beach for walks with spectacular views.

 

You can now rent a cozy room right across the street from the beach, in a well-to-do area surrounded by mansions, restaurants, sport equipment rentals, and a short walk from the historic fishing village offering fresh seafood daily at reasonable prices. Mondello is the site of the annual World Windsurf Festival, which draws participants and visitors from every continent. A famous landmark is the 100-year-old "Charleston" restaurant right on the water:

One of Mondello's most famous houses is Villa Scimemi (1950), inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright's "Waterfall House." You can now rent a room in the historic Villa Scimemi, offering all the usual amenities you would expect for an enjoyable vacation: double bed (divisible), sofa bed, kitchenette with cooking utensils, indoor and outdoor dining areas, private bathroom with indoor shower (2nd shower outdoors), heating and air-conditioning, TV-DVD, Wi-Fi, closet space, and parking space inside the locked garden. Shade is provided by century-old Pines and Ficus trees.
