The Pink House has magnificent views to the hills and beyond to the sea towards Palermo.
It was peaceful and a delight to return to after exploring Cefalu, a most interesting place. We could have stayed forever
Speronella and Giorgio were delightful hosts and so generous in their hospitality.
We left as friends and will be returning without doubt.
This review is late in arriving not in any way due to a lack of ideas and comments on our stay but on our return I found having written a review it simply reiterated all the the positive comments of previous reviewers, I put it to one side.
We are a little younger than Speronella and Giorgio but the greatest pleasure for us was the opportunity to share a meal and ideas with a couple who have lived through the wonderful experience and relative calm of the second half of the twentieth century. Their calm and pragmatic approach exemplified by their helpful but hands off approach as hosts was ideal for us.
We highly recommend.
We stayed at the Pink House for 2 weeks with our young daughters. The house is located up in the hills a little off the beaten track but not too far from the town of Cefalu. The owners had very kindly offered to meet us just outside the town in order for us to follow which was really kind and very helpful after a long days travelling. On arrival we were given a lovely welcome and were greeted with some lovely snacks/refreshments in the apartment which was a lovely touch. The apartment itself we found to be well equipped and full of rustic charm which only added to the delight of the place. The terrace was large and had the most stunning views, with beautiful sunsets to watch every evening. We very much enjoyed being far enough away from the town to enjoy the serenity of the hills, even with the windy roads! The girls loved the pool which we had to ourselves and was always a welcome relief from the heat. We really did have a wonderful holiday and were so grateful to Speronella and Georgio for allowing us to share their lovely home. And for being so helpful in offering advice on places to see. We would not hesitate to stay here again.
We really enjoyed our time at the pink house (2 adults and 2 children). We were met at the petrol station to make finding the property easier which was really helpful. The apartment was well equipped and included fans to make sleeping a bit easier as it was extremely hot when we were there. Our children loved the pool which we mostly had to ourselves as Speronella and Georgio (the owners) generally made themselves scarce when we appeared. A nice place for a bit of downtime, where a hire car is definitely needed. The views are fantastic from this spot - to the extent we tended to hang around at sunset to enjoy them at their best. The only downside (very minor) was the barking dogs - which the owners were very good at quietening when around, but they were a bit annoying when they were out or on occasions during the night,
The owner Speronella was very welcoming and provided us with a comprehensive starter pack of food as we had no chance of shopping before our arrival.
The view from our upstairs verandah was stunning both during the day and at night. The pool was our refuge each evening as we experienced days of 36-44 degrees. The apartment was well provided with fans which were quite adequate of an evening and the windows were well equipped to control air movement and the sun. The heat made visiting sites very trying but it was of course beyond our control and we always looked forward to the plunge in the pool!
Our privacy was always maintained but assistance and advise were readily available when needed. Some might not like the many corners on the up hill access road but it was how we were able to access such a magnificent house.
The Pink House is a bit up in the hills, but it's definitely worth the 10 minute drive up from Cefalu. The accommodation is great - the large terrace has amazing views and makes a great place to eat and relax. The pool is large and deep enough for proper swimming. All in all, a lovely place to stay.
