Casa Argo is a perfect choice both for summer holidays and wintertime stayings: the house is equipped with air conditioning and heating. Our apartment is on the second and top floor, without elevator, of a small historic building built at the beginning of the 20th century in Art Nouveau style. There is a little balcony with a wonderful view on the sea. The flat has one double bed in the mezzanine and a double sofa bed in the living room. Tv, fridge, a cooking stove and a washing machine in the kitchen, complete the apartment features.
Casa Argo is located at only 2 minutes on foot from a beautiful sand beach, in the heart Mondello, the popular seaside area 10 km from the center of Palermo, with plenty of liberty villas, restaurants, shops, nautical clubs. Mondello beach is perfect to enjoy sport activities such as wind and kite surf, sailing, beach volley and so on and a staying at Casa Argo offers the opportunity to enjoy at the same time the city center of Palermo and a very quiet and green residential area 10 minutes on foot from the magnificent beach of Mondello with its tropical colors.
Falcone-Borsellino Airport is at 23 km (25 min driving). The harbour of Palermo is at 15-30 min driving, depending on traffic. Thanks to its position, Casa Argo is the best place to visit (or to work in) the city of Palermo without renouncing a staying in a green and quiet oasis. Mondello is also a great location to comfortably reach the western part of Sicily and its famous resorts of Scopello, Erice, Segesta or Trapani.

Amazing place! Very close to most beautiful beach in Palermo (my humble opinion). Grate restaurants and the best breakfast pastries i tried all over around. But the apartment is a magic place it self! Beautiful, functional and with a soul.
Dear VisitingSicily, I think that you are one of the nicest travel websites I have ever used! Not only that everything is clearly presented and I could get all the information, but also the team and the services you provided.
During the booking process I was able to get all the information I needed. I think that many other tourist websites can learn things from you! The fact that you have a great selection of nice places to stay and very diverse offers for tours, courses, etc. In this way you show your visitors a very authentic side of Sicily. Also very important thing is that the partners you are working with (we used car rental and taxi service) are reliable and one can feel really at ease and safe.
What can be usefull for the guests not only in the place we stayed, but in generall in your venues, there can be a small folder with all the necessary informations about the area, emergency call numbers, bus schedule, closest supermarkets, bars or kiosk as well as pharmacy. Perhaps this applies more for the bigger cities/towns and especially for Palermo.
We had a very nice and cosy appartment in Mondello,Casa Argo, which was totally perfect for two. The tenant was very nice and we could contact him any time needed. The flat was provided with everything we needed for our stay.
What do do in Sicily: Visit Palermo's centro storico; la Vucciria; the many churches and the Botanical garden. Trattoria "Ferro di Cavallo" (again in Palermo). One or more days on the beach of Mondello. Cefalú during Feragosto.
For urban art lovers I think that there are some interesting things to see in Palermo: in la Vucciria and in the area between Teatro Politeama and the harbour.
My boyfriend and I stayed one week in september 2014 in casa argo. It is a wonderful location in a very sweet house, close to the sea, clean and looks like a real boathouse.
From the balcony you have a wonderful view over mondello and you can also see a part of the sea.
Marco, the owner, was very authentic, reliable and helpful. If you have any questions, he's always there for you.
We can recommend casa argo to everyone, who want to spend time in a cute location near the sea, beach and a little italian city.
Thank you Marco! You has been such a great host. Hope to see you again !
