Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Cefalu Centre

This lovely house – dating back to 1700 - is located in the picturesque historical centre of Cefalù, 100 mt to the sandy beach, in a quiet side street 30 mt from the main church “il Duomo”. It’s a traditional three-storey house newly renovated in the old fashion style, and it is unique in its simplicity: stone walls, terracotta-tiled floor and raftered ceiling.

On the ground floor there is the dining room, a fully equipped kitchen and a comfortable bathroom; on the first floor there are two bedrooms: one with a double bed and one with a bunkbed; on the top floor there is the living room (with a bed-coach), a small bathroom and a lovely terrace, overlooking the sea, the old roofs and the “Rocca”, the well-famous mountain symbol of Cefalù.

It is the best for those who love enjoying lively resorts, but also – thanks to its ideal position – for those who want to relax and rest in the terrace enjoying some wine and a nice Italian meal, with a great sea-view!

All rooms have natural light, are well ventilated and look at lovely corners of the old town.

There is a washing machine, air-conditioning and fans; you’ll find everything you might need for your comfortable stay.

Not recommended to people with leg problems and loud groups.

The prices listed are for 1 to 4 people.

Free Wifi in the nearby square.

Extra services available on request:

- professional tour guide for nature and art itineraries, anywhere in Sicily

Sicilian living at its best!!

  • 5 out of 5
When choosing our family holiday we wanted to be immersed in the center of Cefalu whilst also stay a peaceful and relaxing accommodation. This property did not disappoint! We were right in the middle of the historical centre about 3 minutes from the Duomo where the piazza was always full of hustle and bustle and atmosphere. Although central,the property is tucked away up a side street in a mainly pedestrianised area, this allowed that when we sat out on our 3rd floor terrace we could enjoy the surroundings, numerous sunsets and the beautiful view of the sea in peace. We ate breakfast every morning watching the birds flying in and out of la Rocca and enjoyed many dinners and BBQ's cooked on the outdoor BBQ that is provided. The beaches were no further than 10 minutes walk through the bustling narrow streets of the center and you can even sample some Sicilian pastries or ice cream on the way. While holidaying here we enjoyed the perfect balance of relaxing while also taking in some of the surrounds. We hired a car for three days and drove to Taormina where we spent a night overlooking the beautiful Mt Etna and visiting the stunning Greek Amphitheater. The following day we spent a great day in Etnaland which was a huge hit with the kids (age 9 and 5). While in Cefalu, we climbed la Rocca (Tip: climb in the morning while cool and shady also wear good footwear) the views from the top were amazing and we even spotted our terrace. We also took a boat trip to Lipari and Vulcano (Aeolian islands) where we bathed in the thermal hot mud spring baths in Vulcano, an amazing experience!!! (Tip: bring an old swimsuit and rubber flip flops, the springs are very hot if stood on)
There is a particular street in Cefalu where all the restaurants back out onto the sea by way of spectacular decked terraces, we tried 2 or 3 of these restaurants and had great experiences every time.
I would definitely recommend this house and Milena was more than helpful in her correspondence from pre booking to the day we checked out. This house has everything you need and we really felt at home there but best of all we got to live like true Sicilians for 2 weeks. I will never forget this holiday and hope to return someday!

A really beautiful house and sea view terrace!

  • 5 out of 5
This is a really beautiful house on three levels. It's well equipped and very comfortable. The kitchen has everything you need if you like cooking and the terrace is a great spot to sit out in the evenings.
Although the house is just a stone's throw from the main square, it's very quiet peaceful and private. Being situated in the old part of Cefalu is a real treat.
The process of booking with Milena was an absolute delight. She's very friendly, hospitable and helpful.
We thoroughly enjoyed our week in Cefalu - we love walking and found both the Madonie and Nebrodi National Parks to be easily accessible by car. Coming back to Cefalu at the end of a day's walking, sittting and watching the sun set with a cold beer, was superb. Thank you Milena - we hope to return one day!

Excellent communication with Milena leading up to stay gave me confidence that all would go well with booking and stay and it did.It was a really good experience staying in a traditional Sicilian house.Three levels with two living areas gives you plenty of space. It is spotless with all the modern conveniences/equipment you need.The house is quiet and peaceful just behind the cathedral but only a couple of minutes walk and you are part of the lovely buzz/atmosphere of the historic quarter of Cefalu. Many relaxing hours were spent on the good sized balcony( with barbeque and sink area).It looks over the roof tops onto the amazing view of the sea especially at sunset and behind is the impressive view of the Rock.We often found ourselves making a point of getting back to watch the sunset.I rarely revisit a place but can say that I would like to go back here. Cefalu and its surrounding areas has got it all-beaches,national parks, sightseeing, fantastic food and warm, helpful people.

Lovely house - very well laid out, clean and well maintained.
Owner - very easy to deal with. Professional, attentive and helpful.
Lovely location - near Duomo in historical Cefalu. Old town Cefalu is picture perfect and this house is part of that perfect picture. Very cenrally located, yet residential and quiet.
View from the terrace (which I think is West facing for evening sun) is correctly represented in the photos and gives a beautiful view of "the rock" and the sea.
Fully recommended and would certainly stay here again if we returned to Cefalu.

"This is a wonderful place! I have no words to describe how I enjoyed it. Our charming owner helped us to organize everything and she perfectly met us. The house is arranged with all the soul, taste and is very clean and comfortable, a little unusual (this ia e ral tour - 3 floor!), but in fact the purpose of the holiday is to live differently!
The kitchen is small, but it is very easy to cook. Everything is arranged so that that any cooking person will be able to easily make a dinner for a company. We were there 4 people and every evening I made a new meal, I fully enjoyed by the opportunity to cook by Italian recipes with Italian products. The fresh fish from the early morning fish markets was marvelous! Sward, tuna, sardines, scomber, mackerel, octopuses, different seafood, we ate all of this in the nearest restaurants but I was trying to cook also myself and it was a bright experience.
The beach is very close. From the windows and terraces there are spectacular views. I will definitely recommend this place to all my friends and on occasion I really plan return someday to this wonderful place. A BIG THANK YOU FOR THE OWNER.

"We had a lovely time in Milena''s house the first week of April 2013. It''s tastefully decorated, with some very nice touches. The terrace is a good size, and the view from it is spectacular - we spent a lot of our time out there and loved seeing the sea and the rock and the hills in different lights at different times of day. It gets the sun from late morning onwards, so we could soak up some sun with our morning coffee, but then enjoy the evening sun up there as well, with some gorgeous sunsets. There''s also a lovely sea view from the living room. We enjoyed using the barbeque on the terrace (including delicious grilled swordfish bought from the fish shop just off the main beach), and there''s an outside sink up there, which is handy. We enjoyed the location very much - it''s so near the Duomo square, but tucked away and untouristy and quiet (except for the next-door-neighbour''s hip hop music, but he never played it at any time that disturbed our sleep, so we didn''t really mind! In fact all of us slept incredibly well all week - partly thanks to the shutters, which make the bedrooms completely dark.). It was nice having two toilets (there''s a little one on the top floor), and the main bathroom on the ground floor is nicely equipped. The kitchen area on the ground floor, off the dining room/entry space, is pretty tiny, with not much room for food preparation, but we got used to it, and enjoyed the nice solid Smeg hob. We appreciated having two living areas - the kitchen/dining area on the ground floor, and the terrace/living room area on the top floor - it felt as though there was a lot of space for our family of four, and we could be doing separate things on separate floors if we wanted. (Most apartments we looked at had one main kitchen/living area, which wouldn''t have given us as much flexibility). Milena was very nice to deal with, and all the arrangements went smoothly. We''d definitely come back to the house again!"

Follow the signs along the highway. Once in Cefalù, look for the "Duomo".

The climate in Cefalù is mild all year long, and each season gives a new perspective of the area. In the summer you can enjoy its white sand beach as well as the fresh air of the surrounding mountains and hills, where you can taste the exquisite traditional cuisine.

The entrance to sea is free, but there are also some lidos where you can hire beach umbrellas, deckchairs, boats and canoes.

The train and bus stations are within 15 min walking, and from there you can reach anywhere in Sicily – Cefalù is actually one of the main stops in Sicily.

Cars are not allowed in the historical city centre most of the day.
