“Bella Cefalu”
Reviewed October 3, 2018 for a stay in September 2018

Great location with a beautiful view of the Tyrrhenian Sea, a reasonably short walk to public parking as well as to the old tow of Cefalu and its beaches. Three good restaurant right outside the door and a choice of dozens of great restaurants within a five to ten minute walk. very comfortable accommodations.

“Cefalu appartment”
Reviewed September 19, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

I can happily recommend Casa del Faro B. We had good, prompt and friendly service via email from Sergio who was flexible when we had to change our arrival plans. Our daughter and her boyfriend flew out ahead of us and travelled from Palermo to Cefalu via public transport, which they said was easy. Sergio helped organise a taxi for them from Cefalu station. Casa del Faro B was also easy to find by car using a Sat Nav.

The apartment is over two floors, is well furnished and exactly as described on the website; charmingly rustic and clean with everything you need for a four person holiday. The beds were comfortable and we slept well, although the road and restaurant outside can be noisy - light sleepers are advised to take earplugs.

Although it was September the weather was hot and sunny. With the windows open there was a nice breeze but, as I am allergic to the mosquitos bites, we soon realised it was preferable to keep the windows closed and found having air-conditioning very helpful.

There is a lovely small back yard with a sink, coal barbecue, washing machine, table and chairs. Again, not much used by us due to the mosquitos and would advise all travellers to take plenty of insect repellant. I was able to purchase antihistamine tablets in the beautiful Farmacia Crinicione, worth a visit if only for the decorated interior.

It is quite a walk into Cefalu town, which is endearing, had good beach facilities and was not too busy at this time of year. There are plenty interesting shops and restaurants where the food and service was good and the staff were always friendly. If you can't face the walk into town the Al Faro restaurant opposite the apartment served great food and was always busy. The deli below the apartment had good choice of wine too.

We drove to Etna and Taormina and other beaches but there is plenty to do in Cefalu and there are businesses in the town which organise trips so if you don't have a car it is possible to sight see using these tours or public transport.

Free car parking isn't possible outside the apartment, but there is free car parking at the harbour, approx. 200m away, past the sewage works, which doesn't smell good, and a good uphill walk back. There are no local dustbins for the Faro apartments and we were advised to take our rubbish to the harbour trash bins; which was a bit of a chore and a closer bin would have been useful.

Things we enjoyed the most about our stay at Casa del Faro? Cefalu town, the beaches, the great food and ice cream and the apartment itself. The things we least enjoyed - mosquitoes, sewage smell, lack of rubbish bins and the walk to the beaches. Overall though, a very enjoyable trip.

Dear Elena,
thanks for the nice words on the apartment. By the way wi-fi is included in the price and nobody ever asked you money for that. The other extras are writenn in the description, we don't want to fool people.
