I have stayed here three times now. Each time has been a delight - the owner is erudite, friendly and interesting, the garden is a delight, and the rooms are very comfortable. It is placed on the outskirts of the great city, but access to the central city is easy, and the delights of Mondello are very easy to reach.... More

What wonderful villa this is. Directions to Il Glicine - Piana die Colli was spot on. We were welcomed warmly by Daniella who was a fountain of knowledge and advice with regards to history, places to eat and generally parking advise wherever we were going. Mondello is a 10 minute trip by car. Palermo is an easy 25 minute trip... More

Il Glicine - Piana dei Colli is a place unlike any other - a wonderful Garden of Eden (without the snake) tucked in behind a palazzo, in the hopping district of Palermo/Mondello- all beaches and sea-front restaurants. The Signora speaks excellent English & French and is a mine of useful information about Palermo and district. Breakfast, outside under the verandah... More

a perfect oasis from the sometimes frenetic pace of Palermo. Very easy to find driving from the airport and only a short drive into Mondello, a charming seaside resort, and about 20 to 30 minutes drive into Palermo centre for sightseeing etc, given Gabriella's concise directions.. One of teh nicest B&Bs I've stayed in, and over the years that's been... More

What a delightful surprise! I had been too busy to check the details sent to me by my son, so it really was a bonus to find such a gorgeous spot and such a vibrant hostess who seemed to know EVERYTHING about everything! You definitely need your own transport but would probably have that anyway. Being winter I could only... More

This accommodation is very good for relaxing and recovering. It is very quiet and there is a beautiful garden like a little paradise with a lot of different plants and trees as well as a little garden pond with turtle. The house and the rooms are a excellent compound of museum, hotel and holiday flat (because you have a little... More

Being keen gardeners, we had picked this B&B because of the pictures of the gardens and also because Gabriella had written us such a nice email when we were making enquiries. We were not disappointed! The house and garden were delightful and Gabriella was the perfect hostess. It was the ideal place to come back to after a busy day... More

We spent four nights in this beautiful villa just minutes from Mondello. Our hostess Gabriella was exceptional in going out of her way to ensure our comfort and provide day trip suggestions, restaurant recommendations and deliver us a beautiful breakfast each morning. This is truly an oasis away from the bustle of Palermo. Mille Grazie Gabriella.

Everything was excellent. The room was very clean, spacious, lovely decorated. The terrace was with a nice view to the sand beach of Mondello & the mountain of Pellegrino. The breakfast was wonderful too with homemade jam, freshly pressed juice & organic (bio) fruits everyday. The hotel host was very friendly & helpful too. They could always advise us some... More

I've just returned from Piana dei Colli, where I had one of the best experience's of my life! The room was just incredible, very peaceful and clean, overlooking this amazing tropical garden and beautiful Palermo's mountains, 5 mins from the wonderful Mondello's beach as well. The building its very old and extremely well mantained, with an incredible taste for interiors.... More
