The villa lies within the historic core of Mondello, an area known as ‘delle saline’, which still retains something of the appearance and atmosphere of the modest fishing village Mondello was before becoming Palermo’s most fashionable seaside resort.
The villa’s name, ‘a thousand and one nights’ reflects its exotic Moorish-style architecture. It is set in three different buildings within a vast garden – a rare thing in Mondello.
The first building, Arabic in style, and closest to the entrance, houses the first bedroom. A small private terrace guarantees guests maximum privacy.
From here a long paved avenue, flanked by luxuriant vegetation, leads to the building housing the living area. This consists of a spacious living room, an carefuklly hidden kitchen, a bar area, and an ample patio with dining table and sofas.
The third building holds the rest of the bedrooms – two double rooms with ensuite bathroom on the ground floor, and on the upper floor (reached via a spiral staircase) a suite, consisting of a spacious living room, bedroom with small terrace, a small kitchen and a bathroom.
The fulcrum of the villa, however, is the luxuriant garden with its swimming pool. Several little ‘conversation corners’, set with garden furniture, and illuminated at night, make it a genuine outdoor living room. The swimming pool is large, with a slide and diving board. There is a changing room and bathroom nearby.
