Set on the rocky coast of the exclusive little seaside resort of Addaura, near Mondello, the villa is in a great position with private access to the sea –with a large platform on which you can swim or sunbathe. Recently restored, and simply but tastefully furnished, La Vela is the ideal family villa. There is plenty of outdoor space, and great views from the patio and roof terrace over the gulf of Palermo.

Recently restored, the villa is designed in a way that combines great taste with simplicity and comfort, and is full of those little details that make all the difference: the terrace is equipped with a music system and the bar area has an ice maker and splendid barbecue.
The rooms are small but comfortable and well-organised  with the living room (with TV area) opening onto a covered patio furnished as a dining area. A spacious, comfortably furnished terrace is the real heart of the villa – and from here there is access to the sea via a staircase.

We like

This is one of the simpler villas in our portfolio — but it’s position, with private sea access is amazing! It really is perfect for a traditional Italian family holiday.
The views are just splendid — especially at sunset!
Waking up in the morning and jumping straight into the sea!
Mondello is really close for days on a sandy beach with all the comforts Italian lidos can offer.
It’s great to have a seaside holiday, but be able to pop into Palermo whenever you feel like it!
Spend a morning seeing the mosaics of the Cappella Palatina and shopping at the incredible Ballarò market, then come home for lunch and a lazy afternoon on your terrace.

We think

La Vela is a perfect villa or a anyone wanting a quiet, traditional holiday by the sea, within easy reach of a great art city and a lively resort. With three bedrooms, three bathrooms and plenty of outdoor spaces (both open and covered)
La Vela would suit either a family or a small group of friends.

Superb!

Fabrizio, We have enjoyed our stay at La Vela. It was quite easy to get to the motorway for excursions. The sound system outside was superb.
