“Perfect, friendly and easy going stay.”
Reviewed 10 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We arrived at Dimora Fragolina at around 10pm on the Saturday evening (1st April 2017) and were given such a friendly welcome. We had such a long journey with our 2 year old daughter so a good welcome was just what we needed.

The place is stunning with amazing views although over Palermo. The first two days of our stay was very wet which was unlucky more than anything. Nevertheless the rest of the week the weather was perfect.

The cottage in the photograph is an annex to the main house. Miro, the owner, lives in the main house with his mum and dad (I think). Even though he didn't speak much English conversation with him was so easy to understand. He was more than helpful on many occasions. We just needed to send him a text and he would be there. You would see him around from time to time through the day but he did not bother us at all. Even though you fee the pool area is part of the mansion, we had it all to ourselves and felt so welcome and comfortable.

When we arrived there was fresh milk and fruit juice in the fridge plus he left us a fresh baguette the next morning too. This was a nice touch.

I would seriously recommend this cottage to anyone wanting to stay in the Palermo area. We had hired a car which we parked at the house. Palermo is about a 20 min drive (without traffic). There's a small shop down the road which sells all sorts of things including fresh bread and ice cream, although the walk is quote dangerous as there are no pavements on the main road.

This is a great place for kids too. Our two year old was made to fee so welcome. She was allowed to run around with no hassle.

Thank you Miro and family. Thank you for making oru holiday so special.

“Heaven on Earth”

We arrived late July to August with partner and 11 year old son.Quite simply the best holiday weve ever had. Fantastic view of Palermo, spacious and if you are looking for an authentic Sicillian holiday this place is perfect. We hired a car and explored the island from this beautiful cottage. It is a kind of annex to the house but you are very much left to your own devices. Miiro and family are very friendly and by the end of the holiday we felt very much part of the Dimora Fragolina family. So the practicalities, plenty of room, parking, air conditioning and speedy free wifi. Pool is adduce the to the cottage so I started my day by diving straight in followed by Bruschetta bought (kilos of fresh tomatoes,garlic, basil,bread)incredibly cheaply from the outdoor shop 500meters down the road. No nasty extra charges or surprises. There is a small fridge and the Sat TV (SCART)is all Italian. So summing up, I can't wait to go again, I have very high expectations and can be quite harsh when I feel let down ( to protect other travellers )but in this case you really can't go wrong , we were all devastated to leave; Dimora Fragolina can only be described as Heaven on Earth. Thank you Miro and Family we look forward to seeing you again soon !

“Ahhh Dimora Fragolina- unforgetable memories...”

It was a perfect holiday. A wonderful, spacious and luxury bungalow furbished with great taste with breathtaking view on Palermo bay. After all day spend in quite big private pool you can cook a lovely Italian dinner and enjoy stunning view of Palermo by night, or seat down beside pool and enjoy best pizza(must eat!) we ever eat from La Frattoria 1,5km futher on main road - ask Miro the owner (if he wouldn`t tell us about this place we would never know - thanks Miro for that!). Miro the owner and his lovely wife and kids despite the language barrier are very nice, always smiling and willing to help and what`s most important - not intrusive in any way. We recommend this property for everyone who wish to enjoy proper luxury Sicilian holiday as it is perfect place due to its location which is not far from heart of the palermo (7km) and yet far enough to enjoy a quiet holiday under Sicilian sun if you feel like. Once again - highly recommended! Dominik&Kinga.
