The villa is ideal for a family with young children. Viviana is an amazing host, and her thoughtfulness and hospitality comes through in how well-equipped and well-maintained the property is.
The property is very much as you see in the lovely pictures on this and other (including Viviana's own) websites. Mod cons include air-conditioning in bedrooms and the lounge, a nespresso machine and a fabulous shower. For those travelling with young children, the villa is well-equipped with a very comfortable cot, stairgate, baby bath and toys.
Like most places on the island outside the cities, you need a good supply of mosquito repellent for venturing outside in Mondello in the mornings and evenings in the summer. The villa has mosquito netting on all windows, so you are absolutely fine indoors.
Viviana, like most Sicilians we have met on our several trips to the island, is tremendously proud of Sicily (and rightly so), which translates to an eagerness to ensure her guests have an amazing holiday - tips on local restaurants, markets, sights - Viviana is spot on with all her recommendations! If you are dining in Mondello, don't miss out on the amberjack caponata (a superb twist of the classic dish) at Badalamenti and classic Sicilian treats at A Alba - easily some of the best arancini, cassata and gelato we have had on the island!

Our family vacation at Green Villa was a memorable experience - the property is set just outside the Palermo city center in the small suburb of Mondello. The house itself is a nicely furnished, clean family home, cosy and children-friendly. Property owner Viviana is a gem, helpful and friendly, really nice.
All in all, a wonderful experience, highly recommended.
We stayed here for a week in October and it was incredible. The villa is everything you could ask for. The space is great for entertaining. We had friends and family around for dinner whilst we were there. The villa is so well equipped - just like home. Viviana was such a wonderful host, before and during our stay. She made sure we found the villa by meeting us at a petrol station and then guiding us through the hidden paths. The location was remote and relaxing. However just a 10 min drive to Mondello. My 5 year old loved her bedroom and ours was very spacious and relaxing. We will come back if visiting Palermo again. Thank you so much Viviana for making our stay special.

Green villa is a perfect place to spend your vacation. This was my first time in Sicily and I didn't regret I chose this villa. It was new, very clean and comfortable. Everything you need to have on a vacation was there. Nice designed! And a beautiful terrace. I would defenitely recommend Green villa! Thank you, Viviana!
