About Annick Le Jan

I'm french and I live in Palermo since a long time, 20 years in Mondello.

Mondello is the place I prefer in Palermo. I like the gulf, the long beach between the two mounts. I like a lot the sea which changes color with the weather and the seasons. I like to walk until the lighthouse of Monte Gallo or to hike until the top where there is an old observatory and a lot of things to discover. The panorama is marvelous and it's perfect to do photos.

I like to speak about these places with my guests and about Palermo and Sicily too.

Why Annick Le Jan chose Mondello

I decided to rent a room because I want to meet new persons, speak french, my first language, and english too.

I like to help travelers to discover Palermo and Sicily, a nice region which merit to be visited.

What makes this house unique

This house is spacious and bright and in front of the sea with two terraces.

The beach is marvelous and the color of the water often changes. It's a natural pearl, between two mounts.

The city center with the monumental heritage is near, and it's very easy to go by bus, inside the park. The bus stop is few meters from our house.

And the airport is only 20 minutes far from Mondello.

Helpful hosts and great position

  • 4 of 5

Annick and Georgio were very helpful hosts, readily giving advice, while also giving us space. The delicious breakfast, with homemade cakes, jams and juices, were served on the large balcony overlooking the beach. Annick was also happy for us to sit there in the evening. The room was a good size and had both air conditioning and a fan. (A little more hanging space for clothes would have been helpful.) There is a bathroom across the corridor just for guests use; this is small but does have a shower. The beach at Mondello is literally across the road with good sand and a warm sea which is shallow for around 80m. There is not a lot to do in Mondello beyond the beach, but there are a few good restaurants; we particlarly liked Badalamenti and Alle Terrazze. Ask Annick for recommendations. It is very easy to get a bus into Palermo, with bus stops near to the property. This is better than driving which is not for the faint-hearted! We went in twice as there is plenty to see. Do check opening times of the palace and other sites. Be aware that parts of the city are quite poor - 'gritty' is how one guide book accurately described it. We would recommend a trip to Monreale, but use sat nav if driving as the road signs are poor (you will end up driving through part of Palermo though). We also went to Cefalu, which took about an hour, which we would recommend. We actually drove from Catania airport on the other side of Sicily (as it fitted into our plans for a second week over there) and the journey was easy using the motorway and took less than 3 hours.

Well worth a visit

  • 4 of 5

My wife and i stayed at this property recently for one week,and we found the owners Annick and Giorgio very friendly and helpful.

The property is clean and well maintained,and the breakfasts on the terrace are a delight.It has a good location on the sea front,with a great view over the beach.

We found Mondello very busy at this time of year,but it has a decent selection of bars and restaurants.It is also easy to visit Palermo ,which is well worth seeing.

We went to Mondello to attend a wedding,and Annick and Giorgio helped to make it a very enjoyable experience for both of us.

  • 5 of 5

"A wonderful house with fantastic location just in front of the sea. Clean & cosy. Annick is a very good host. She even bought a baby cot especially for our baby. Breakfast she provides is just great, consisting of home-made yoghurts, fresh juices, coffee, pastries - everything organic. We had a room with a nice bed & could also use the terrace. We also had plenty attention from the host, she helped us to get to the airport & made us a good company) Recommended to anyone going to Sicily!"

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Annicks house for a lovely week. She is friendly, warm and welcoming abd staying together with her and her son, was very, very nice. Annick makes also very good food by request.

The house is lovely decorated with two big balconies and it is very close to the beach and the centre of the village Mondello.

The romm is simple and comfortable and the bathroom across the hall, but that was not a problem for us.A little noise from the street, but no problem to sleep.

It was a great and welcoming stay.

In front of the house in Mondello
Car: not necessary

The B&B is 20 kilometers far from the airport and there is the motorway to come to Mondello. It's very easy to follow the roadsigns 'Mondello'.

The town's center is 7 kilometers, the bus stop is 10 meters from the villa; with the bus 806 you'll be in center in 20 minutes.

In Mondello you could go in the free beach or rent a deckchair and a parasol to stay as much as you want on the sun.

We have 2 bicycles to ride in Mondello and to go in Monte Gallo riserve for example.

For lunch or dinner you could eat sicilian food in numerous places, fish, pasta, arancine, caponata and pizza of course. Numerous ice-cream-maker will propose you to taste the sicilian ice-cream and granità, a very good experience to eat the ice-cream with the brioche!

In Palermo center you could discover the marvelous Massimo Theater, the Palatina Capel, the Capo market.... We will help you to discover the town and we'll give you a map.
