Although we had a little difficulty finding it, we were delighted with the place and the environmentally friendly garden through which one enters. Gabriella, a former journalist and current environmentalist is one of the most interesting people that we met on our tour. The renovated wing of the estate is comfortably furnished, clean and pleasant.

We've stayed with my wife in Il Glicine – Piano del Colli late October and I want to say it was really wonderful and unforgettable. First of all I would like to thank the hostess, Gabriella, who was so kind, hospital, responsive & nice that she put all the efforts to make our rest unbelievable. The room was very good... More

Our experience at Il Glicine was ex excellent. The location is quiet and surrounded by plants it even has a neighbouring swimming pool to cool off from the summer heat. The place itself is beautifully decorated, housing many artifacts of intrigue and an infinite abundance of reading material. The host is very kind and welcoming as well as efficient and... More

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

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!

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.

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

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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 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.
