B&B in an 18th Century Villa

A five day excursion took us from Enna, over the mountains, to the north west coast of Sicily. We stayed four nights in a Bed and Breakfast that was a restored 18th century country villa in Mondello, near Palermo. 

We had a very comfortable room and enjoyed breakfast every morning on the garden terrace. Our gracious hostess made our stay very relaxed and enjoyable.

Our time in the region included visits to Cefalù, Segesta, Erice...


and some hiking and swimming at Capo Gallo (Barcarello) and the Riserva Naturale dello Zingaro.

B&B Surprise:
The villa had a chapel dedicated to Santa Chiara. Our hostess showed us inside the chapel, but it is now used just for storage.
