    Rental Home – 
    2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4
    This very refined and elegant-country style Cottage is located inside a vintage Villa, in the typical Mondello's liberty style, where the landlord lives, at just two minutes walking distance from the famous white sandy beach. Although the Villa is on the main street with easy access to all amenities and with the bus stop at just one minute on foot, the Cottage is in a exclusive backyard which allows its guests to enjoy peace and tranquillity, enjoying a nice small equipped terrace surrounded by trees and Mediterranean plants.

We had a lovely week in Saffron Cottage. ideally situated with its own garden near the shops, beach, bars and bus stop to Palermo. We booked via the link on Trip Advisor and Virginia at Charmed by Sicily made everything so easy for us. Evenings in April were a bit chilly so we didn't need to make use of the... more

Dears, it was a great pleasure having you as our guests at Saffron Cottage.

I really hope we will... more
