Sicily Villa 9909 is probably one of the best private villas in Sicily.
It is in the centre of Palermo but has a 3 hectare garden so is huge!
It's perfect for visiting Palermo and walking in the evening to restaurants, bars etc and Palermo is incredibly picturesque.
The pool is awesome and the owners (a Prince) find that many people actually don't like leaving the house that much and just stay put by the pool and garden.
There are four enormous bedrooms or suites if you will, and could sleep a family of 10.
However, for those who want the sea, the Prince will arrange membership of his private club which is on the sea, near Mondello, a 15/20mn drive from Palermo. The club is probably the choicest beach club in Italy - La Vela - and has top facilities.
Beach facilities include sailing boats, canoes, a pool, deckchairs, changing rooms, showers etc. Also a wonderful restaurant run as a old-fashioned club restaurant (waiters in uniform etc), and a bar.
So guests can leave the house in the morning and spend all day peacefully by the sea - or can come and go from the house at their leisure.
