My fiancé and I took a vacation in the off season last December. The photos don't do justice to the beautiful views of the sea, whereby at sunset ,the underbelly of the clouds as they roll in over Palermo are lit with a silver hue. The entire apartment and every room spacious with a clean modern style , with touches of Cefalu Rock on the first floor bedroom and entry. The Sicilian air reaches all rooms. Keeping things naturally lighted. When the rear windows are open, the giant rock of Cefalu, which apartment is nuzzled against creates a warmth and earthiness creating contrast with the deep blue sea. A cozy walk way to the rear of the apartment is stunning when the sun hits it in late afternoon. One can take a shower with the clever design of a full length glass window on the top floor shower where the view of the sea is in direct line. Don't worry, there is a curtain for the bashful. Christine, the owner was gracious and accommodating always willing to answer any questions. We will be back. It was a fantastic way to experience a place we'd never visited! We can only imagine what it's like during the summer with the longer days and warmth.
We arrived in Cefalu and my family of 3 were met at the train station by our host after taking the overnight train from Rome. The Villa is well within walking distance from the station.
After arriving at the Villa we were absolutely delighted because the property is absolutely stunning. Recently renovated, stylishly interior designed with all the mod cons, crockery and cooking implements you will need.
The 2 bedrooms are huge one on the ground floor the other bedroom on floor 2. Both come with en-suite shower rooms.
The 1st and 2nd floor balconies are stunning, the upper balcony gave us the opportunity to view the most spectacular sunsets I have ever seen as the sun kisses the sea on its way down.
The property is perfectly situated and is a short walk away from local shops, coffee bars, restaurants, excursions etc.The Cathedral is also a couple of minutes walk away I enjoyed eating breakfast in the cathedral square. The beach is also close by which offers a range of seaside and sporting activities.
The Rocca just behind the property is also a must see.
The property also has 3 flat screens TV, so you can kick back for a lazy afternoon after a busy morning of exploring.
I absolutely loved our stay here and would easily go back on my next visit to Sicily. Book this property and will not be disappointed. The host is extremely friendly and made more our stay really comfortable.
This apartment is amazing. Very high standard and finish. Air condition on all three floors and equipped with dish washer, washing machine, flat screen tv and free wifi.
Charming surroundings, walking distance to the city center and the beaches.
Please note that there are no separate doors to the bedrooms, the staircase is open between the floors which means there´s no "privacy". There´s also a steep climb up the alleys with a lot of steps in order to reach this apartment. Car parking is a few hundred meters away.
