Absolutely beautiful gardens, with a lovely veranda to sit and enjoy the scenery on warm sicilian evenings. The apartment was quaint with everthing you need, there was fresh fruit in the bowl and we had fresh pastries every morning which was a lovely treat :-) Selinunte is short car drive (approx 5-10mins) which has a stunning beach in a nature park about a 10 minute walk up from the busier beach. The town itself is lovely with an amazing ice-cream bar called Mozarts which I'd say is a must, and there's also the Penguin Bar which we spent many an afternoon in. After my afternoon siesta we enjoyed our late night socialising in Selinunte where the shops re-open for the night and theres plenty of stalls, we visited a pizzeria called Bruno's (Africa) which had amazing made in front of you pizza's in a traditional stone pizza oven (with a choice of chocolate pizza which went down great with the kids) there is plenty of choice for restaurants. I've visited villa mimosa several times and have always been warmly welcomed and looked after. I am looking forward to my trip next year for our honeymoon.
