Citronella is a cozy, air-conditioned apartment with private pool located on the ground floor of a 19th-century villa overlooking Palermo and the blue sea. Set in open countryside but at the same time close to town (15 minutes drive from the center of Palermo), Citronella is perfect for a relaxing holiday enjoying the peace of the pool and garden as well as exploring the attractions of Sicily.

The bright apartment is delightful for two couples, a group of friends, or a family with children. There are three bedrooms and three modern bathrooms (two are en suite). All bedrooms have access to a furnished, private patio.

The outdoor area is attractive and peaceful, with a private patio furnished with seats, tables and a big umbrella, and surrounded by lemon, orange and tangerine trees. There is also an outdoor shower. The pool is fenced and safe for children, with a changing cabin and hot shower, and is used exclusively by guests from 9:30am to 7:00pm.

The very helpful English-speaking owner and her family live in the main villa upstairs. She will meet you on arrival. She teaches Art History and is a very special resource for information about what to see and do in the area. At the same time, she is conscientious about respecting her guests' privacy. She can also arrange a cooking class with a professional chef, one of the best in Palermo. Classes are held in the main villa, in the owner's beautiful, spacious, typical Sicilian kitchen. The owner will be on hand to help and to translate. Dinner is served on the main terrace or in the villa dining room, depending on the weather.

Additional amenities: Airport distance:Palermo 10 km, Computer Available, Free parking for two cars, Pool is fenced, Pool: 3.50 x 9.50m, Private Chef, Stove with oven
