Great location, good size, pool, clean,private and all the amenities with helpful owners-recommended
Dimora Fragolini is near Monreale and within a mile of its grand Cathedral, but out of the main city. The privacy is great and parking for your car is totally secure. This very good location allowed us over 5 days to easily drive north, east, south or west with out getting caught in too much Palermo traffic - the main freeway is 1 km away. The owners speak limited English, but were still very very friendly, helpful and communicated reasonably well with us thru Google and family and directly. I really enjoyed their big, clean pool and wish I had more time to swim in it. The refrigerator could have been a little larger, but was still good for us. We felt it was nice to have the space of a 2nd bedroom. Dimora F was a good value and we would recommend it to others so long as their children can swim as the pool is unfenced.

Perfect, friendly and easy going stay.
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.

Fantastic Villa!
We stayed at Dimora Fragolina for 10 nights and had the most fantastic time. The villa had everything that we needed and what a view over Palermo! We loved the rustic decor of the villa and appreciated the modern amenities i.e. fridge, air conditioning and tv. There is also a washing machine if you need it. The pool was fantasic and the garden was beautifully kept, a very relaxing atmosphere. Probably the only thing missing is a list of local amenities and opening hours etc. Our hosts were really friendly despite the language barrier and were not at all intrusive but were around if we needed them. The villa is ideally situated on the outskirts of Palermo and is about a 10 minute drive to the nearest supermarket (Carrefore Market or Lidl). There is a local bakery a 5 minute walk away which sells a good selection of bread, savory items and cakes. Thank you Miro, Anna Maria, Claudia and Gabriele (and not forgetting Nonna and Papa) for making our stay so memorable!

Adresse à connaître très agréable.
Nous avons passé 4 nuits à Dimora Fragolina. Nous avons tout simplement adoré l'endroit très calme, ce qui contraste avec la folie de Palerme à seulement 10 min en voiture. Nous avons été accueilli très chaleureusement par Miro le propriétaire et son épouse qui habitent juste en face, ce qui est très pratique et sympathique aussi pour échanger quelques mots. Leur adorable bébé chien nous a fait le spectacle pendant 4 jours et il y a aussi un chat, bien plus discret. Une bouteille de vin nous a été offert en cadeau de bienvenue. La maison est fidèle aux photos de booking. Tout était très propre. Piscine très agréable. Une adresse que je vous recommande !!

Una favolosa locazione, una vista su Palermo da mozzafiato....
Abbiamo soggiornato a Dimora Fragolina a fine gennaio 2016 con la mia famiglia. Un luogo incantevole, arredata con molto gusto e anche con pezzi di antiquariato come gli armadi nelle camere da letto. Abbiamo dormito benissimo e anche al caldo, la casa si trova solo a 5 minuti dalla città che è facilmente raggiungibile. Miro è un ottimo padrone di casa e ci ha fatto sentire veramente a casa nostra, spero di ritornare anche questa estate visto che c'è una fantastica piscina....

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 !
