About Francesco Vaccaro

I am a physician researcher at the University of Palermo. I love music, I play the Alto Sax. My wife and I love to travel and know the customs of the various peoples. We are very friendly people and as good Sicilians, we have a great sense of hospitality. It is not uncommon for us to tour with our guests to visit the most characteristic and hidden places of Palermo. With my family we live in the house where the apartment is inserted. What we ask our guests is to have more respect for all of us and the properties  they use.

Why Francesco Vaccaro chose Palermo

The charm of the ancient and the modern that blend into one another mysteriously in Wright's design of the villa and its beautiful seaside location make it an subject of particular interest not only from a technical point of view but, for generations, even among the local people. Designed in the early 50s by famous architect G. Samonà.

What makes this studio unique

Location by the sea, between the reef and the beach that can be reached in 2-3 minutes on foot. Center easily accessible by citizen public transport. The futuristic architectural look of the 50 ', the magic touch of a whimsical architect will complete the charm

Lovely stay with very friendly hosts

  • 5 of 5

We had a very pleasant stay at Francesco's villa. Francesco and his wife were really welcoming and friendly while leaving you in privacy.

The apartment is on the backside of the villa where you can park also your car right next to the entrance. The location is just perfect and the beach (actually also the best part of the beach) is not even a minute walk just across the street. For reaching the town of Monedello at opposite end of the beach there are free bikes available, but we usually just walked the 15-20 minutes along the beach enjoying the pretty site of the bay. A bus stop with various lines to Palermo is also just 5 minutes away. Only the Wifi signal was not the best, but just mentioning to Francesco and he tried everything to improve the signal strenght.

So all in all a very well earned full 5 stars rating for our stay.

A lovely apartment on top of the beach

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our stay at Francesco's charming apartment, which is a mere 30 second walk from the public beach - and in this respect couldn't be located in a better position! The apartment itself has all the extras you'd want (Air Con/TV/WIFI). There is a site seeing tour bus that leaves from Piazza Valdesi (5 minute walk away) which takes you into Palermo. This is a great way to see the local area etc, and once in Palermo you can use the same tickets to travel around the city by tour bus. All in all I can heartily recommend staying at this apartment - you won't be disappointed!

Todo perfecto!

  • 5 of 5

Estuvimos genial en la casa de Francesco! Su mujer y él son dos personas encantadoras! Muy simpáticas y muy agradables, fueron un encanto con nuestro hijo. La casa es preciosa, la piscina espectacular , tienen un parque infantil que tenía loco de feliz a nuestro pequeño y está perfectamente situada a dos minutos de la playa de Mondello, que es preciosa. Es una zona residencial, con casas muy bonitas y servicios como farmacia y tiendas a muy poca distancia. Andando en 15/20 minutos estás en el centro de pueblo y a Palermo en nada también llegas, bien comunicado también en bus. Absolutamente recomendable.
